Hello Hello ... can you believe we just had Memorial Day Weekend? I mean ... really. I can't get past the fact that it's no longer March. March 2012 that is. You all know I'm usually into cooler temps, but this year, I am really ready for Summer. I have lots of fun plans on the agenda and lots and lots and lots of training (read: biking) lined up.
But in the meantime, here are some Spring outfits.
* White Wrap Top & Turquoise Pants *
I think these are actually jeans, but they look like pants, so I went with it. I found these at TJ Maxx on a recent trip there. I am kind of embarrassed to admit it, but they are those Not Your Daughter's Jeans brand. But there they were on the clearance rack with their bright shiny red sticker and the price that was too good to be true (I think it was $17). So I tried them on and of course loved them. I wore them with my white faux wrap cotton top from Banana from a few years ago, and a cute and preppy nautical belt I got from LL Bean.
* Navy Shell, Black & White Cropped Blazer, Bootcut Jeans *
I found this blazer at Forever 21 months ago and have been waiting to wear it! I took my chance on a recent Friday. The blazer had shoulder pads (seriously) so I snipped them out immediately. I wore my favorite bootcut jeans (Gap Long and Lean) and a shell I bought at the Banana Republic outlet last Winter. Flats completed the look.
* Coral Blouse & Polka-Dot Pencil Skirt *
On the same trip to TJ Maxx when I picked up the turquoise pants above, I found this coral blouse. I saw a similar, very feminine, very flowy, coral blouse in the Boden catalogue (which I cannot seem to find online) but I didn't like the price. Note: I *love* Boden. Wow. I use their catalogue for outfit inspiration quite often, actually! Anyway ... I found this coral top, also in the clearance section, for $11. I wore it with my polka dot pencil skirt from Forever 21 and my quilted pink slingbacks. I thought the over the top femininity of the outfit called for simple hair, so I pulled it back.
That's all folks! Get used to seeing skirts and dresses: it's basically all I wear in the dog days of Summer :)
See you swoon,
