Can it be Fall already?! I know there are lots of people who live for summer but I am not one of those people. Plus, I have a really cute outfit idea for this top and it includes boots. So obviously it needs to be Fall soon so I can wear that outfit. Shockingly, Mother Nature doesn’t really care what kind of weather I need for my outfits and it will be close to 100 degrees tomorrow. 
While we’re on the subject of my top, can we just talk about how much I love it?! I think my favorite part is the zippers. They serve no purpose other than cuteness and that is just how I like my zippers…cute. Seriously, French Connection can do no wrong.

Ask the hubs what my favorite color is and he’d say black. He’d be wrong because my favorite color is actually purple, but my favorite color to wear is black so he gets half a point for that*. My black section takes up the majority of my closet, whereas my purple section only has like 4 items in it so I can see why he’d be confused about my favorite color. And my black section just keeps growing. Please help me in welcoming my new leather skirt from French Connection to my growing collection of black clothing. This skirt is definitely a splurge item but it is soooo worth it. It can be worn in the summer and of course in the Fall/Winter too. (Mother Nature, can you please hurry up and bring Fall weather? It’s my favorite. Thanks.) It’s also great for casual wear (I totally plan on pairing it with sneakers) and dressed up for a date night. Speaking of date night, don’t you think the hubs needs to take me on a date night so I can wear this skirt dressed up? Am I the only one who forces date nights just so I can wear my cute outfits? 
*He says that now he knows my favorite color to wear vs. my favorite color in general. But it took him about 9 years to figure it out.

They (the fashion gods) say that if you wear something looser fitting, you should balance it out by pairing it with something tighter fitting. I say “they” must have never experienced 100+ weather because when it’s that hot outside, you don’t want anything touching your skin. By the way, who is “they”? I’m pretty positive it’s Stacy and Clinton from What Not To Wear but I can’t be sure.

How proud are we all of me and my dress wearing this summer?! So proud! Who knew dresses were so amazing?! Ok, probably most girls knew…and cross-dressing men knew too. But me, it took 24 years for this childhood tomboy to discover the amazing world of dresses. I’m sorry, mom, for putting up such a fight every time you wanted me to wear a dress to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thank you for letting me change out of it after pictures and letting me discover the wonderful world of dresses in my own time. And I can now proudly say that my list of dress styles I love is growing. Recently added to that list is drop waist dresses. (The others on my list include maxi’s and swing). I mean, how fabulous is this drop waist dress? (and it’s on sale right now!) It also comes in a gorgeous blue color which I desperately want. Ok, now applaud me for loving dresses. This is a big feat for me, people. Thanks! 🙂

Mixed Prints

By | Fashion, Style | 29 Comments

Stripes are my go-to when mixing prints. Is there a print stripes don’t look great with? Florals? Leopard? Other stripes? Nope, stripes look amazing with all of them. Stripes are the best friend any print could ask for. They’re the best print that was ever invented. What would the world be like without stripes? Well, we wouldn’t have bumble bees which I’d be ok with because one stung me when I was little and I’ve been waiting for their demise ever since. But we also wouldn’t have zebras and that would be sad. And all our other prints wouldn’t have a best friends to hang with when they’re feeling spunky. Yup, stripes must live forever!

My old white tank top was getting a little… not white. Luckily I found this one just in time. My mom had to convince me to buy it though because in my mind, I already had a use-to-be-white-and-now-still-pretty-much-white-tank-top. But according to my mom, it was dirty and I needed a new one. What do moms know anyways? Turns out, my mom was right. I bought this top, compared it to my old white one, and holy cow, my old white tank is no longer white! It is dirty! When did that happen? But do not fear new white tank top. I have a plan to keep you bright white forever. That’s right, I finally figured out how to use bleach. Bleach scared the living daylight out of me when I was younger and accidentally bleached my sisters favorite shirt and she got mad and I had to buy her a new one. Since then, I haven’t gone near the stuff. But in order to keep my whites white, I’ll face my fear. And I’ll face it in only my old ratty clothes that I no longer care if I ruin and gloves that go up to my shoulders.
