Outfit Post: All of the Brights

If you’ve been reading the past few weeks (rather than just skipping past my blabbering to the pictures… which you’ve probably already done if that’s you), you’ve heard me talking about trying to curb my spending to save up for our bathroom remodel.

I’ve stayed pretty strong, sneaking in the purchase of a seriously on sale dress but leaving behind some other pieces that were calling my name. It’s all about sticking to my budget and so far, so good. You’re probably thinking, what the what does this have to do with today’s post. Well, it explains why all of the items in this post are oldies but goodies from the back of my closet.

I’ve been trying to clean out and move around items in my closet – bringing some things in the back to the forefront to get them back into the rotation. This look includes three {seriously bright} items that have been spotted at least once before.

Oh and that big band-aid, it’s covering up a nasty leg injury I got while being a total idiot playing kickball. To clarify, not an idiot for playing kickball (love me some kickball)  but for sliding (not sure that’s really an accurate description for the action) into third base when the game was basically lost. Just in case you were wondering. If you’re not, carry on.

Outfit Post: Print Mix

Sometimes I put on an outfit, absolutely love it and then .. I see the pictures.

That’s kind of how I feel about today’s post but I figured I’d share it with you either way. Sometimes the posts I’m the least jazzed about are the ones that get more response so who knows. I’m willing to give it a go.

After picking up this skirt a week or so ago, I immediately rushed to wear it but rather than pair it with a simple tee (which I will probably be doing next time), I thought I’d mix it up a little. This shirt had been hiding in the back of my closet (since way back here) so I broke it out thinking a little print on print could be fun.

I’ll let you all make the final decision on whether it works (sometimes it’s a hit and sometimes it’s a miss).

Outfit Post: Forever in Blazers

So yesterday was a mess. Definitely the definition of a Monday. Scrambling to get out the door on time, my schedule totally being thrown off with my mom being in town and my little man going to camp, then scooting out to take my new pup to the vet (he has bronchitis). Add to that my son dropping my {brand new} phone in the toilet and you’ve got the makings of a mess of a Monday. Nothing tragic or horrible just lots of mild chaos.

Hopefully you all won’t think the same thing can be said about this outfit. You probably remember these shorts from this more casual look. Here I’m dressing them up a little. My philosophy – add a blazer and anything’s a little more dressed up. How do you all feel about the dressed up shorts look? It was definitely something that took me a little bit to warm up to but now, I’m all about it.

One thing I’m not all about, just yet, is this season of The Bachelorette. Can’t quite seem to get behind it but that hasn’t stopped the recaps. Stop by Secondary Embarrassment later today for my recap!
