Day off

I got this shirt in the fall and hadn’t worn it until this weekend.  I guess I just forgot about it but now that I rediscovered it I can’t stop wearing it!  It is the softest thing I’ve ever felt, which makes it absolutely perfect for lounging around on a day off.  I felt like a total tomboy in this outfit too which was kind of fun.  I mean, sure, I love a good dress or a skirt, but that being said, I’m really happy in sweats or basketball shorts and a tee or hoodie.  I’m all about the comfy clothes, which is why, even when I’m not schlubbing around, I like my stuff to be comfortable.

And no, I didn’t edit that first picture to make me look way more tan than I am haha!  It’s just that sometimes my flash goes on and sometimes it doesn’t and that’s the main difference in most of my pictures.

Doesn’t this outfit seem perfect for a chilly night at the beach?  Because that’s the vibe I got when I wore it and even though I was wearing it to work, I felt relaxed and summery and…well, fine, you got me!  I felt ready for a return to the beach!  This Henley has become one of my favorite summer pieces.  I know, how many times can I say that this summer?  But it really is perfect.  It’s lightweight but also has 3/4-length sleeves.  See, it really is perfect for chilly summer nights!

Moving on, do you guys want to hear a fun fact about my necklace?  Hilarie Burton wore it on last week’s episode of White Collar.

And yes, I did stand in front of my TV to get this picture haha!  But isn’ that cool?

Stripes and tassels

Let me just start by saying that I LOVE this outfit.  Because I really do.  It was the first outfit I planned to wear when I got the skirt but it took awhile to actually wear it (mainly b/c the shirt was sitting in the bottom of my hamper for a few weeks.  Whatever, don’t judge me).  But hell, my hair even behaved!  Hair and clothes both working on the same day?! It’s like a miracle, you guys.  And yes, I am addressing any guys who are reading b/c I know that all of my female readers know exactly what I mean when I say it’s a miracle to have the hair and the clothes working together.  I will definitely be repeating this outfit.  It was so cute for work and it was perfect to combat the A.C. but still be summery.

I thought it was summer?

Uh, I really did think that it was supposed to be summer.  I mean, what the heck is up with the chilliness?  I’d love to have more to say about this outfit but it was inspired solely by the thermometer!  That being said, if I had lost the cardigan the outfit would have worked for summer…or at least for as summery as it was last week!

Chambray and linen

I keep experimenting with this skirt, trying to find different things to pair it with.  And since the temperatures took a bit of a back slide last week I decided to try it with the chambray.  Looking at the pictures, it feels like there might have been a bit too much volume with this outfit but I didn’t hate the overall look.  And I really do like the idea of the linen and chambray so I think I’ll definitely be trying this again if I can find a fitted chambray this fall.
