Yes, I still have pink eye. Let’s not even talk about it.
I’ve been looking for a really wide striped navy and white striped dress. This isn’t quite as wide in the stripe as I had in mind, but it was $12 at the Banana Republic Outlet last weekend, and it’s basically like wearing a big t shirt that doesn’t look like pajamas, so it’s definitely a winner. Kork Ease Sandals, Forever 21 necklace.
I think maybe I should have worn a darker shoe? The gold flats sort of get lost. Whatever. It was 102 degrees and my husband was in Tahoe while I was doing hours of First Grade homework and having pink eye, so you know. I wore flats.
Gap Dress, Target belt, Talbots necklace, Target shoes
I LOVE this dress. They still turn up on Ebay from time to time if you want one of your own – search under J. Crew Pique Dress or J. Crew ruffle dress or J. Crew Pavilion dress. And remember I had to have this altered from a very strange deep scoop neck.
I have only terrible pictures of this, but I got two compliments on this outfit. One lady just waved her hand over my whole…persona, at school drop off, and said “I love your entire outfit. Everything.”
PS These shoes suck. Die, Toms, Die.
Gap ribbed tanks of wonderfulness, Target necklace, Old Navy skirt.
This is the same outfit, just with the Old Navy jean jacket I wore over it in the morning. I bet you figured that out on your own, you smartypants you.
Ok, two things. One, I have the same wardrobe hole that Adrien is talking about here. I have overflowing drawer loads of t-shirts, but no nice shirts. I guess you call them blouses in old person ese? I don’t know. Anyway, I have a couple skirts that just don’t look right with t shirts, so my only fashion goal this year, besides acquiring all the jackets, has been to add nice tops to my wardrobe that aren’t t shirts. It’s not as easy as you might think, especially because I don’t love that feeling when a sweater is mashed over a crunchy shirt. Yick. Anyway, I went looking for a few options, and instead I bought a t-shirt. But it’s a fancy t shirt and I love it with my whole heart, so be quiet over there. (Obviously I used a giant coupon on it. Don’t pay $50 for this t shirt.)
Also, do you see that hair in the last picture? It’s Bumble&Bumble hair. Every thing they say about that stuff? It’s true. I have only used it for two days and I am SOLD. This is a combination of Straight Blow Dry all over before blow drying,(LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE), a teeeny bit of Defrizz at the roots after it’s dry, and the Thickening Dry Spun Finish. On dry hair at the roots. But if you can only afford one thing, get the Straight Blow Dry. I have my eye on a few other things too (the Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner and that weird Brilliantine stuff) so I shall report back once I win the lottery.
If you see any fancy shirt blouse top things you think I would like, holler.
