What I Wore {post 52}

The weekend is here again!  I am so glad.  If I'm being honest, and I think by now you know that for better or for worse I am totally honest all of the time on this blog (even when you wish I wouldn't be), every Friday I start singing "Everybody's Workin For the Weekend" which automatically makes me think of the Chippendales skit on Saturday Night Live with the Patrick Swayze and Chris Farley dance-off.  So, there you go.  I really do have a knack for setting my life to 70s and 80s music.  

* Baby Blue Top & Khaki Skirt *

This was a casual Friday outfit when I didn't want to wear jeans.  This was a pretty fun, pulled-together look:  a light baby blue cotton top from Vineyard Vines (you can't see but it has a pretty crepe-like detail at the neckline, and I rolled up the sleeves for a bit more polish), a khaki skirt from  Loft outlet, wooden beads from Claire's (seriously) a few years ago and my leopard flats.  Done!

* Anthropologie Dress *

I embraced full-on schoolgirl in this outfit.  The dress is a few years old from Anthropologie.  It's kind of tough to wear because it's got the short sleeves, but the bottom is a fine wale eggplant-colored corduroy.  This was a cool but not cold late Summer day, so it worked well.  The top has very feminine details with lace and pleats.  I wore pearls and my patent Mary Janes.

* Navy & White Striped Top & White Pants *

With the weather in that in between Summer and Fall stage, I took advantage and broke out my lightweight navy & white striped sweater (from the Gap).  I love these white pants (Banana Republic, last Winter, clearance, of course), and I think the sweater looks good with them.  White after Labor Day is a yes as long as it's paired appropriately with heavier fabrics.  I wore my silver flats.  I also got my hair cut later this day.  

Yay for Friday and yay for Fall.  Have a good one, ya'll! rhyming not intentional but happily noticed. 

See you swoon,
