Good morning! I'm really excited for the 4th of July. This year, I'm headed home to my parents' house for some low key fun - barbecuing, a bike ride with my mom, swimming in the pool, and lots and lots of running. Then I'm hanging out with two of my friends from high school. And then I'll head back home and spend the rest of the weekend playing with my little ones. Yay for long holiday Summer weekends! To kick off the holiday weekend, here are some recent outfits I put together.
* Floral Cami, Grey Pants, White Cardigan *
The centerpiece of this outfit is the pretty floral cami that I got last Spring from Forever 21. I love that pattern, but it is way too bare to wear alone to the office. So I paired it with a lightweight white cardigan from the Gap and my dark grey trousers. I wore my patent red pumps (Ann Taylor outlet) for a pop of color.
* Purple Dress, Nude Bow Peep-Toe Heels *
Talk about bargain outfits ... I think this entire outfit was $45. I got the purple dress last year from Old Navy, on sale for $15. I wore my nude bow peep-toe heels, which I scored on clearance for $10. They're finally broken in and feel wonderful. I dressed up the outfit with my long necklace from the j.crew outlet, which was around $20 or so.
* Printed Top & Black Pants *
This was an easy outfit to just throw together. I wore my black pants with a printed top I found at New York & Co. last year. Whenever I see printed tops that I like (that are in my budget) I try to snatch them up. Printed tops with solid pants really take an outfit from ho-hum to polished.
That does it for today - over and out! Have a great day and a terrific holiday!
