I Own This

Short hiatus from the blog, but I have been inspired to start again by my two best friends. Nothing like friends around to encourage you to pursue your interests right?

Speaking of best friends, one of mine, B, is getting married in July 2014, and I was given the honor to go wedding dress shopping with her today. It was a lot of fun to hang out with her, her mom, her sister, and another bestie, and watch her try on dresses for the first time! She didn’t say yes to one today, but it is just a matter of time until she does! The above outfit is what I wore. I wanted something that was “smart casual” – a term I think I made up – that showed I deserved to belong in this fancy bridal shop. It turns out, I ended up leading the group to the fitting room and carried several dresses back to the fitting room…like I owned the place. So I guess the outfit worked?

Plus, I wore the jacket closed (it doesn’t have a button/closure) with my new ladybug brooch. So winning.

What would you wear to a dress fitting for a friend?

Legs and Lace

Sorry if the title of this post is a little out there for anyone, but that’s all I could think of upon looking at this images. Crazy amounts of legs and just the right amount of lace.

This shirt looks like it costs a million more times than it actually did. Super detailed floral lace print and it has a shell lining underneath, which was a big selling point for me. Plus, it is in this crisp yellow, which was a serious lack in my closet. Plus yellow just makes me think of summer, and sadly, summer is almost over! Hello September, when did you get here?

So for now, it is yellow lace and shorts with legs for days. And an awkward Hulk-ish photo? Don’t mind me.

  • On Target item: Merona Top (early 2013 summer)

Happy Labor Day, everyone!

I hope everyone is able to enjoy their day with family and/or friends (or just sitting on the couch surfing the internet because you don’t have to work…because I do that on holidays from work too). Also, does anyone say surfing the internet any more?

Chad, my fiance, and I are headed to the Mumford & Sons concert tonight in Indianapolis with his parents, and I could not be more excited about it. They are such a cool band, and we get to listen to them perform outside at a neat venue (where I saw my first concert…the Spice Girls with my aunt, such a cool kid).  Anyways, I wanted a cool, concert-going outfit, and just scored these red jeans yesterday (I know, behind the times) while thrifting. I love red with black and white/tan, such a statement.

What is everyone else up to today?

———-

  • On Target item: Merona Tee (different patterns in stores now – I have tons of these and love)
  • Necklace: Forever21
  • Red Jeans: JCPenney (thrifted)
  • Shoes: thrifted

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?

  • On Target item: Merona Skirt (still available online, but only in petite)
  • Tee: Merona, Target
  • Jean jacket: Eddie Bauer (old)
  • Shoes: thrifted

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?

  • On Target item: Mossimo Tee, (mine is grey without a pocket)
  • Necklace: thrifted
  • Shorts: Adidas, thrifted
  • Shoes: thirfted
