Florals and a Tea Pot

Halfway through the week already! I can’t believe how fast the summer is flying by.

I’ve never paired this black camisole with this skirt before, but I really like how it turned out. I think the illusion that the white stripe on the skirt makes with the black tank is really cool. I wore this for a day out in which I ran some errands, volunteered, and explored a craft fair. It actually was a really windy day, so I regretted wearing a skirt! I felt a lot like Marilyn Monroe and had to keep holding my skirt down.

I got this skirt at Nordstrom Rack, which is one of my favorite places to shop. I’m not one of those people who loves to have designer items. For one, they’re too expensive for me. More importantly, the label of the clothes doesn’t really matter to me, just as long as they’re cute. 🙂  With that said, I really like shopping at Nordstrom Rack because I always find something cute and super affordable. Usually I head right to the back of the store where they have racks based on size and just a bunch of random clothes. I think it’s so fun shopping in this section because lots of times, if you find an item you like, you’ll only be able to find it in one or two sizes. I feel like the racks are kind of like grab bags and you never know what you’re going to find. If I do find something I love, I always feel like I’ve found a hidden treasure.

Can you tell that I’m sipping from a tea pot planter in the last picture? I even have my pinky up. 😉

Hello! I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

I wore this outfit in Kansas! We spent most of the day driving, but this outfit was super comfortable for being in a car all day. The pants feel like pajamas. Usually my travel outfits consist of jeans or athletic shorts and an old t-shirt, so to find a cute and comfortable outfit for traveling was exciting.

The lighting in these pictures make my top look like a red/brown color, but it is actually maroon. I’m not going to lie, I have this top in three different colors…I feel like if you like a piece that much, why not get it in every color? And this mock-neck top was only $11, so it just makes sense.


Top: JCPenney, $11

Pants: JCPenney, $18

Sunglasses: Icing, $16

Shoes: Target, $15

Hat: Nordstrom Rack (exact), $21

Sunset Skirt

Thank goodness it’s Friday!

Isn’t this skirt really pretty? I think it looks like a sunset, and even though I’ve never been to Hawaii, this seems like it would be the perfect outfit to wear on vacation there. I originally put on some shell jewelry, but then I decided that was too island-like for not being on an island…

I wore this outfit to go see a movie with my friends downtown and then to get ice cream afterwards. I saw Me Before You. Did any of you see it? More importantly, did any of you read the book? I loved the book, but I have to stop talking about it now, and those of you who have read it or have seen the movie know why…

I bought this skirt the same time I bought the orange and navy skirt I wore in Wednesday’s post. I can’t believe it’s been four years since I got them! Or that they still fit; today’s orange skirt is getting on the shorter side. I remember buying these skirts for my trip to Puerto Rico, so at least this one was intended to be worn on an island. 😉
