I am totally ready for sweet home Alabama in this outfit. Or a Taylor Swift concert. Whatever, I like it.
So, so happy it’s Friday! Thought this one called for an outfit of the day…
H&M has these perfect mini pencil skirts right now- for only six bucks! They come in navy and black and tend do go with about 75% of my wardrobe. I paired the black one with this Anthropologie top I’ve had for years but haven’t worn in forever… I was always self-conscious about how much fabric there was to it, but with a slimming black skirt I think I like the looks of it a lot more now!
What are y’all up to this weekend? I’m so ready for it, this week has felt so long now that I’m commuting into the city from home. I’ve hardly been able to keep my eyes open at work! I was looking forward to some good old relaxation, but we’ll see what Miss Hurricane Irene has in store for us… Everyone please be safe!!
Like I said yesterday, I’ve been all about the prep lately! You can just tell from last week’s wardrobe…
Ugh sorry, that was a lot of me. Just trying to squeeze as much bright pink and green as I can before summer finishes up!
Um, and how about that earthquake yesterday? I felt it in Boston… and I’m not talking a mini “what was that?” shake– it took us all of fifteen seconds to realize what was going on before we RAN down five flights of stairs and out the door! Hope all of you are ok!!
The shoes I’m wearing here are easily one of my favorite pairs I’ve ever owned. They’re so special to me because I got them in Paris four years ago (?!) when I was there with my family. And they go with just about every outfit I own so they were incredibly worth it. They are long gone from Lacoste, but Gabriella Rocha sells an almost identical style, available in
5 10 16 colors! I’m lusting over the pale pink ones though:
On another note, two great giveaways going on this week! Let the Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore is giving away a Graphic Image 2012 Planner (so chic!!), and Ashley Brooke is offering a gorgeous Vineyard Vines clutch (want. so badly.). Check out those links and get entering!!
There’s not much to this easy summer outfit, but I sure think the bright yellow Adirondack chairs add something to it! So proud of my mom for walking on the wild side (at least for her) and choosing such a bright pop for our outdoor furniture.
I also got up the courage to wear some big earrings other than my pearls and finally changed out my single second hole I have in my right ear for this adorable little bicycle. I mean, you know how much I love them!
Two other notes of business:
For those of you who are already on Bloglovin’, I’m finally just getting around to cleaning up my account and would love to connect over there! Follow my blog with Bloglovin <3
Also, I’d like to introduce you to a very good friend of mine:
Welcome Ariana to the blogosphere! She and I go way back, to eighth grade actually when she moved to our little Pennsylvania town from Texas! To this day she’s still one of the sweetest gals I know. We’ve been apart at separate colleges for too long now, so I’m very excited that we’re in the midst of planning a trip to meet up in New York City to visit our friend Kelly who just moved there!
Isn’t reconnecting with old friends the best?
