All Blue Everything

What would you even call the print of this skirt? 50 Shades of Blue? Blue-daba-dee-daba-da? Blue print? Whatever it is, I love it.

I love all shades of blue. In fact, I love them so much that instead of having two different colors at my wedding, I’m doing all shades of blue. Like this skirt. Hey, maybe I’ll just wear it instead of a wedding dress. Just kidding, I already have that.

What color is your favorite of all the colors?

I Can’t, Ikat

To be completely honest with you all, I got this dress this summer because Jessica from What I Wore showcased it on her blog.

But how can you go wrong with such a classic shape, and I’ve loved ikat print my entire life. Plus, who can say no to a $25 dress. If you can, you’re a better person than I am. I also have this dress in the green/gold watercolor pattern, and I noticed they released a similar style with the new fall collection.

Have you ever bought something because you saw it on someone else and just loved it? Let me know if the comments!

Just A Little Lobster

Yes, I own a lobster shirt, don’t you all? I love pencil skirts, but I just never feel like I can get enough mileage out of them by just wearing them to work. That’s why I love this style math trick: pencil skirt + graphic tee = casual wear. I think the play of the dots that make up the lobster work really well with the hexagon shapes (more math).

I also love the way that red and green look together (especially when they don’t scream Christmas is here). Because, let’s face it, it’s Indiana in September…and it. is. HOT!

How do you get more mileage out of your “work” clothes?

This whole outfit is Target (dress, blazer, and shoes). The story with this dress is that one of my best friends and I had already gone shopping before ending with a trip to Target. I saw this dress, loved it, and tried it on. It fit PERFECTLY…like it was made for me. I stood between the clothing rack rows with her trying to justify buying this after getting several things at other places. One of my arguments (to myself, yes) was with a blazer or cardigan, this dress could make it to workwear. I think I achieved just that, but let me know what you think, okay? Before my boss sees it?

Casual Stripes

See, told you I love a good stripe. This tee is one of the most versatile items I own. It goes with anything and everything, and it is even better because it is so soft. Target makes them in tons of colors, but the grey is by far my favorite.

it Guys, three out of the four things I am wearing…I thrifted! I am almost as obsessed with thrifting as shopping at Target, but more on that later. So, do you like stripes or are you more of a polka (dot) person?
