Flower Child

Outfit Details: Floral Top: via small local boutique; Tank Top: Old Navy; Jeans: Se7ens, via ideeli.com; Shoes (old): Steve Madden; Necklace: gift.

This outfit didn’t turn out exactly how I had hoped. I really wanted to add a jacket or blazer but these high waisted jeans made it difficult and nothing seemed to be working. I’ll probably try again in a week or two.

Sadly, the actual amount of jeans I have that fit is very small. I’ve so far deluded myself into believing that my jeans that are size too big are just “boyfriend jeans.” I do have two or three pairs that actually fit. This particular pair finally got hemmed and fit perfectly now! Sorry for the wrinkles, but I’m terrible about not wrinkling clothing.

This floral blouse is gorgeous, even though it does tend to make me look heavier than I am. I love it enough that I ignore that though. I’m actually delighted that I tried layering it over a bright tank top, since I tend to layer it with the same camisole over and over. I fully plan to work this into my wardrobe more often.

I’m starting to try and make an effort to involve jewelry in my outfit posts. Here’s hoping this necklace is the start of a trend! Also–I’m hoping this will help me hunt down some of my missing pieces of jewelry.

Also–I realize this is a super late Wednesday post, but better late than never!

Where Has The Time Gone?

Outfit Details: Cardigan: Gap; Tank: Old Navy, gift; Skirt: purchased at a small boutique; Shoes: Ross

Obviously I went AWOL for the month of May. I knew the last half of the month would be crazy, but I didn’t realize quite how crazy. I pretty much ended up switching between work clothes, pajamas, and workout gear–with several random outfits thrown in that (of course) didn’t get photographed.

Its been reasonably warm in Washington, so I’ve been mostly wearing jeans and tank tops. Which is really nothing to write home (or blog) about, anyways. Although I really regretted wearing jeans when I went to Seattle a couple Saturdays ago–shorts would definitely have been a better choice!

These red flats have started making a comeback. They’re comfortable and give a great pop of color. ¬†As for this floral skirt? It’s about to become one of my summer staples. Nothing puts you in a better mood than a pretty flouncy skirt.
