Two Outfits

I love the red/white flowy top, but it is sleeveless and bare arms are not a good look for me.  I wore this to the movie theater and draped a red cardigan around my shoulders.
Since these two outfits were a bit ho hum for me and I'm feeling quite lazy about blogging these days...I will forego the usual outfit stats for today.
Hopefully I'll feel more enthused about my next one. :)

Lace Cardigan

I found this pretty off white lace cardigan at Ross for only $12.99 and couldn't resist.  I fell in love with it.
I love neutrals and so chose to wear the new cardigan with nude tones and dark brown jeans and sandals.  I added a crocheted scarf and mother of pearl earrings.
This is my new favorite outfit.

tee $3.40 Dress Barn

OOTD: Casually Polished

 Casually polished is how I would describe this look.  It's easy going with black cuffed jeans and wedged sandals.  The nicer style of jeans (not old and ill fitting) and pretty floral top dress things up a bit.  I added in golden jewelry and an updo to further heighten the polished aspect.

black jeans $9.99 d.j. jeans
top $2.79 K.C. Studio
black/gold hoop earrings .69 cents
purse $5.94 Alfred Dunner

OOTD: Cobalt Blue and Black

This falls into my favorite outfit category.  I loved the colors, the fabric and length of the top, and the "just dressy enough for me" feel while being totally comfortable.

top $4.19 Susan Graver
pants $8.99 Anne Klein
cobalt/black necklace $2.29
black/gold hoop earrings .69 cents

Thrifting Coordinating Pieces In One Shopping Trip

As it so often happens, I was browsing around Value Village, randomly adding things to my cart that I liked, and once I got home realized that many of the items I had purchased actually work really well together and provide pieces to create multiple outfits.  This top, scarf, and bracelet were all purchased in that shopping trip. I'm apt to do...(wisely, or not) I loaded on all the colorful pieces together.  I did ground them by wearing a dark navy trouser and shoe.

I bought the cutest pair of bright pink bottoms ($4.89 Caslon) that will go really well with this top also.  They are a bit snug and I'm not sure I'll be able to squeeze into them before summer is over, but I'm hoping to.  If not, I'll save them for next year. 

top $4.19 JM Collection
scarf $1.39
navy pants $6.99 Nautica
yellow/gold bangle $2.09
purse $5.60 Relic
navy flip flops $2.99 Old Navy

Flowers For The Feet

I've had these sandals for a few years, but don't wear them often.  I have the same style in a peachy melon color too.  I find them fun to wear on occasion so I hang onto them.
I love shades of teal and peachy pink.
