Sun's Out Stripes Out

The sun is out and I'm doing a happy dance! I've mostly decided no more tights or hosiery until (next) winter. I will suffer through until temperatures continue to rise. 

I've been into stripes more than usual. Stripe dresses, skirts, and shirts. That's all I want to wear and nearly buy. I recently organized my closet and purged quite a few items. I've rediscovered some loved pieces and I have been inspired to create better and newer outfits with what I already own. Classic outfits like this one are vibe-ing well with me at the moment. It's easier and works for this weird in between the seasons moment. Plus, what's better than navy and stripes? Navy stripes?

Anchors Away

I have caught spring fever. All I want to do is wear the pieces in my closet without having to layer a coat over them! Even my beloved sweaters are starting to wither in lieu of pieces like this anchor blouse. Of course, Indiana has other plans. It was just snowing the other day! 

I'm really loving blues right now. And mixing my blues at that. I was always the person who hated wearing denim and blue shirts. Now, I look for those combinations! The surprising mixture of this (royal?) blue anchor blouse with the stripe chambray skirt is so pleasing. 

What are you exciting to wear as the weather warms?

Cupcakes and Chiffon

I ventured out into the world to shoot this outfit! I dragged my tripod to the Flying Cupcake in Greenwood and ate some delicious treats. I don't have a photographer that follows me around, I set up my iPhone 7 Plus with the timer on my tripod and shoot. I tend to stay in my yard (or near it) or the grounds at work. I feel very awkward and anxious shooting in public spaces - especially with a tripod. I pushed through it today and I'm so glad I did! The Flying Cupcake is so whimsical and cozy - perfect for showing off this Loft blouse. Oh, and there were cupcakes.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Whatever you're doing today, I hope it is filled with love.

I've said it before, Valentine's Day is not my thing. I do, however, love hearts and wearing red and pink together. I stopped at my local Dollar Tree and picked up these heart shaped balloons. Props for less! You'll find me out and about on the 15th looking for clearance items in the shape of hearts.

Winter Florals

I bought this dress months ago, but wore it for the first time the other day (it's on sale!). The tulip-hem is so flattering. It's just been too cold. My dresses have not been loved this winter. I can't wait to bring out my favorite dresses this spring! And I'm so over tights. What are you looking forward to wearing (or not wearing) this spring?

Winter Colors

Winter is so dreary. This particular winter has been the coldest and dreariest in a while. When the temperature nearly reached 60°F the other day, I jumped at the chance to dress my best and brightest! And, hello, no tights! I just love this Gap sweater. I definitely tend to wear neutrals way more, but these multi-colored stripes mixed with neutral stripes are killing it. I would normally wear a black skirt with a sweater like this, but I went all out with the pink ruffle skirt. It's a favorite outfit to date for sure. How are you beating the winter blues?
