Old Navy yellow eyelet skirt (last summer), Target shoes (from the little girls sections, last summer), navy t shirt from Target, yellow necklace from Target.
I think I saved the Old Navy boat neck shirt! It was just too long and tunicy to wear with a skirt. But these white shorts worked with it because they are more fitted and look like bike shorts under a loose shirt. I don’t know that I’d nominate this for “The most flattering thing I ever wore” but I liked it.
This is my “I cannot believe I’m having cramps and I still have to do preschool drop off” outfit. Luckily this outfit was saved by this jacket, which is a fabulous piece of miracle clothing. Normally I look SO GREAT in pieces with structure but I don’t like the constricting feeling of a blazer. This is made of thick sweatshirt material so it gives great structure but it’s still comfortable. I really debated buying it and it was a great purchase.
Target Converse One Star Jacket (last year), Old Navy t shirt, Target elastic waisted convertible cargo pants, Target flower flip flops, Orla Kieley purse (old, can only be found on Ebay)
I’m sort of on the fence about this outfit. It looks really cute on and I always get compliments on it when I wear this skirt with a different t shirt I have, but in pictures it looked so hippy and something about the length and the layers gave me a weird can can girl vibe. I don’t know. I’m still pondering it.
I have about ten million of these 3/4 length cardigans from Target and I think they’re great. Cardigans, especially fitted ones, tend to gap on me, though, so whenever I buy one of these I just sew the front shut. Voila! No more gapping.
This series of pictures inspired me to wipe off the terrible dark berry lip gloss I had on and to throw it out. It’s a color the whole internet raves about it. It’s very safe. It looks awful on me. I put on some bright red lipstick and then I felt better. Way less safe, but better.
Target cardigan, Gap skirt (old, via Ebay), Target shoes, Target necklace.
I loved everything about this outfit, especially because it redeemed this skirt which was just about to get shit canned! And those shoes! They are my new favorite thing.
Gap Mason Crew tee, Gap white skirt (old), Target necklace, Franco Sarto wedges (via Ebay).
I love this outfit because it is the uniform at work! I’ve been branching out a little bit lately but this look adheres to all my guiding principles. Colors/fit/etc.
This is my “I hate preschool field trips” face. The field trip is why I am wearing shorts and flip flops. I LOVED this outfit. I felt so proud of myself that I had this stuff in my closet and could put together something comfortable, cute, appropriate, and that looked casual but nicer than a t shirt and denim capris. I love these shorts so much, btw. I wish they came in more colors online (they’re from the J. Crew outlet) but I am thinking of buying another pair in gray because they fit me so well. I have a few pairs from earlier this year when I gave up on shorts and just kept a couple pairs that weren’t great, and this just proves to me that if something is not great, you should keep looking. The right piece is out there.
