Resort Wear

On Tuesday I paired my dark wash bootcut jeans with this flower printed top.  This top is three-quarter sleeve and can easily be worn all year long.  But, it always reminds me of the type of print that you see featured on resort wear.  The flower print always makes me think of vacation and tropical get-away’s.  Alas, I just wore it to work!  I added my red boyfriend cardigan in lieu of a jacket and then went with gold and red earrings and an oversized gold watch for accessories.  My black espadrille sandals finished off the look.

Here are a few other ways that I’ve worn this blouse in the past:

What do you think?  I should pair it with my royal blue blazer and a black pencil skirt next time!

I wore this outfit on Sunday and then a modified version of this outfit to work on Monday.  This is a pretty dressed up outfit for the grocery store.  Normally, I just wear jeans, a hoodie, and tennis shoes.  But, on this particular day I put in some more effort.  I paired these olive-green trousers with a bright pink v-neck t-shirt.  It was on the warmer side but I still needed a jacket so I added my jean jacket for warmth.  Because we were just going to the grocery store and back home I went with sandals as opposed to ballet flats or my white leather Converse.

What do you wear grocery shopping?

New Uniform

I wore this outfit on Friday which is super similar in formula to the outfit that I posted about on Wednesday.  A pair of jeans+ a sleeveless blouse + cardigan + ballet flats= dressed and out the door!  It’s been in the mid to high 70’s where I live but in the early morning when I leave for work it’s only around the mid-50’s.  With this type of outfit I don’t need to wear a jacket and I’m comfortable all day long.

The last time that I wore this leopard print tank top I paired it with a black leather jacket and silver accessories.  This time I wanted to accentuate the brown and gold tones so I went with my brown grandpa cardigan, an oversized gold watch, and dark brown ballet flats.

I have realized that I need to amp up my warm weather shoe game, though.  I know most people who know me IRL are probably rolling their eyes and thinking, what?!  But, it’s true.  I have several pairs of ballet flats (black, brown, leopard print, red, purple, and gold) but that’s pretty much it.  I do have my black espadrille sandals that are good but I don’t always want a wedge heel.  I have a pair of black Grecian style sandals but they have seen better days!  I also have a pair of sandals with different metallic colored straps but they aren’t super comfortable to wear for long periods of time.  So, I’ll be on the look out for some new Summer shoes for work.  Any suggestions?
