Anthro- Climate Control Cardi
NY&Co top
H&M belt
Loft crops
DV Archer Sandals

So this is my look for Molly's analogous color challenge. These pants and this cardi are actually not the exact same color, even though they appear so here. Anyhow, I find that blue and green shades are pretty easy to combine together. This also helped me get dressed this morning since I wasn't feeling any particular direction, so there you go.

Back to normal

Mirror, Mirror Tank
Westwood Skirt

Loft Cardi
H&M belt
SoftSpots wedges

Back to wearing real clothes this week. Bought this skirt on supersale in July and haven't worn it yet! This shot doesn't really show the detail, but the kind of faux-wrap-hankerchief front has eyelet-ish/embroidery detail. A nice little twist to make it not quite basic.

Pilcro Boy T- "Bugs"
Lookout Cami
Wily Cardi
Grassland Gallop Skirt
Animal Crossing Belt
Peacock Plume Sandals

So today's theme for dress-up was "animal print". I decided to take a very literal interpretation of this and see how many different critters I could cram into one outfit. I think I did pretty well (and I didn't even come close to wearing every animal-motif item that I own.) What's funny is that if you don't see the close-up of all the crazy prints,  this is actually a pretty cute outfit. Anyhow, looking forward to the rest of the week...

Finally Fall (ish)

Joe's Petite Microflares
Wound Barra Boots
Horseshoe Falls Top
Prize Winning Tote

Long sleeve t- Splendid via Nordstrom

Being able to put on jeans and boots shouldn't make me so giddily happy, but there you have it. We had a drizzly/cool weekend and I was in heaven. We're supposed to have a couple more weeks of slightly more summerish weather, but at least we got a sign that fall is really on its way. I do have a couple summer dresses I need to bust out before the weather breaks, but they will have to wait because next week is Homecoming Week and we have all kinds of wacky dress-up days. I'm most excited about tomorrow's ensemble, so stay tuned....

Hooray for rain and cooler weather!! We're supposed to get a few more sunny days next week but I was happy to break out the boots.

Aija Maxi Dress
Shadowsleeve Cardi
Venetian Blinds Belt
Jubilation Necklace
Lacy View Wedges

I so didn't realize there was some weird false hem sewn into this dress and it actually is about an inch longer. Gah! The black cardi wasn't the best choice but I needed something to throw over it to be work-appropriate.
Graphic Frangipani Tank
Day Off Skirt
Wish You Were Here Cardi

Old Navy Scarf
Minnetonka Mocassins

I dressed from the feet up today. My thought process was basically- I want to wear comfortable shoes. Now what bottom can I wear- and so on up. I was all about mixing patterns today (already 2 patterns on the shirt and then adding in the cardi). Keeping to a neutral color palette helps me look slightly less crazy.

We are supposed to have a dramatic temp drop tonight (hooray!!) so I might get to break out some boots tomorrow. I get excited over these kinds of things.

Anthro- Fairweather Plaid Shirt

Banana Republic crops
Target Shoes

I only managed to squeeze in one pic this week. Of course, it was only a 3 day work week. Anyhow, I continue to be extremely cranky about the weather. We got a cold front in last night and the weekend is supposed to be mild, but back up in the 90s next week. Enough, already!

Ready for Fall, Already!

Lace and Chambray Shirtdress
Organic Blooms necklace

Adrienne Vittadini Shoes
Bianka Blouse

Gap wide-leg trousers
?? belt
Target necklace
Softspots wedges
Ethereal Pointelle Sweater
Nubby Stripes Skirt
Peacock Plumes Sandals

Loft necklace

I am having a really hard time feeling cute right now. Dressing professionally, but with some personality, and still being acceptably comfortable and not too hot is really getting to be trying. It is so much easier to dress in the fall when I can just throw on dress + cardi + boots and call it a day. Unfortunately we are creeping back into triple digits this week. I suppose I still have a lot of skirts that I can put into the rotation until the heat breaks, but I'm just about ready to be done with summer.
