I was looking at Pinterest last month for some fall outfits. It was wishful thinking, really, because the day I wore this outfit it was just about 90 degrees outside. Anyway, I came across this pin. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to own white pumps (I’d definitely wreck them the first time I wore them), but I loved the outfit and recreated my own version with a few items from my closet. That’s one of the things I really like about Pinterest: finding outfit inspiration and making it my own. How on earth did we get dressed before the internet?

Remember a few weeks ago when I said I am terrible at accessorizing? Well, I went ahead and bought a shirt that was pre-accessorized. So, there! HA! This is my kind of top. It’s comfy, breezy, and requires minimal effort to look put-together.
When I picked this up in store, I didn’t realize the back looked like this, but as soon as I tried it on and could see the top bit of my tattoo showing it pretty much sealed the deal that I had to own it.
This was one of those outfits that just didn’t look exactly as I had envisioned it when it came time to take photos. You see, I am very, very drawn toward royal blue. I had a royal blue skirt previously, but I decided it was a little too short for work and the odds of me wearing it outside of work were pretty slim, so after hunting for a bit, I bought this one. I actually like the shirt and belt combo, but that tell-tale fold across the front of my hips proves the skirt just doesn’t fit like it should. Oh, well! Looks like the hunt continues.

There is something about a hot coral dress that can make even the gloomiest day seem brighter. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a gloomy day once in a while. In fact, as I type this, it’s cool and breezy and very cloudy here in the DMV; it’s a welcome change from the unrelenting heat of last week.
I wore this to work, but the more I look at this dress, the more I feel like it would be awesome to wear to a summer wedding. In fact, I almost wore this to one we went to last month, but I opted for a green wrap dress instead.

I, like many people, love polka-dots. I have a handful of polka-dotted items in my closet and this blouse is one of my favorites. This blouse is a great way to do polka-dots if you’re not firmly on board with them (yet!). The gray-on-white make them subtle enough to be polka-dots without being hellooo polka-dots.
