you tell it was a long day, because my dress is thoroughly wrinkled and I had to use the flash.
also, enjoy the gardening paraphernalia in the background. We are regular farmers over here!
I’ve been looking for headbands as a way to switch up hair-dos without taking a ton of time in the morning, but I still haven’t found the perfect one. This bow headband from H&M is still cute though!
jacket: Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted
I thought I had posted this outfit a couple days ago and I realized this afternoon that Tumblr ate the post.
This sunburn I’m sporting has since disappeared, just like the sun has - behind rain clouds for the past few days.

cardigan, in hot coral: Gap outlet (similar)
I’ve been looking for an affordable polka dot top for what feels like forever (ok, a couple of months). It never occured to me to check Forever21 when I’m shopping, but when I saw a fashion blogger link to a fun piece of jewelry, I started down a polka dotted rabbit hole that led me to this beauty. And ain’t she?
pants: Banana Republic (similar)

I wouldn’t have pegged myself as a double-breasted blazer girl, but I like this casual, lightweight summery version from the Lauren Conrad line at Kohls. She usually pairs blazers with flirty floral tops, but here I kept it classic with navy, red and cognac.

tshirt: old navy

I picked this floral scarf up at Forever 21 and I can’t take it off. [These are all photos taken from this week!] It’s big, soft and versatile and I love the colors.
It looks like the website it out of a few colors, but I’m sure you could find them in store. New accessory staple.

It’s been hard to get back her, depsite my growing pile of outfit photos, because of the perceived energy needed to write something along with it. I assume most of you are here to see my clothes anyway, not read my sparing, less-than-witty writing.
So, here’s some clothes that I wore a couple weeks ago, and a promise to be back again sooner rather than later.
Boot socks: UO
After six months of looking at and trying on chambray shirts that all seemed too low-quality to be worth buying, I found the perfect one! It’s from Dockers, so kind of unexpected, but it feels very durable and is a very flattering cut.
For work, I wore it under a sleeveless dress, accessorized by the necklace I won from In Pursuit of Pretty Things’ anniversary giveaway
chambray shirt: Dockers
necklace: Ember Arts
Red. blush. white. port. Just a few of my favorite wines. in color. on my person.

I was traveling most of last week for work and I’m still recovering, but I have a back log of outfits from the last two weeks.
I think I have a problem where I must match every item I’m wearing. For instance in this outfit I have to wear blue in at least two pieces, yellow in at least two and brown, two. So matchy-matchy!
I’m not sure why this is the case but it probably has something to do with dressing myself circa pre-school and my mom telling me I have to wearing my blue stretch pants with my white and blue bear t-shirt so it matches. Someone, please help!
cardigan: Old Navy
