I got my hair cut and colored (a little darker balayage) recently and love the results. My haircut was the same day as my friend’s birthday party, so I got to have a good hairstyle for a night out.
Necklace is SSO, but I found similar ones here, here, and here.
Maxi dress in Linen is Jen’s Pirate Booty available here and here. I kind of feel like I’m in a Vampire Diaries flashback when I wear it.
Now switching gears to a work outfit. Pretty much all older items in my closet except the flats.
Navy blue ruffle top is old from Anthropologie and SSO. I found similar ones here and here. I only wear this shirt tucked into a high-waisted skirt or pants because it’s so loose at the bottom. It matches a lot of my printed bottoms.
Anthropologie Goldfield Skirt is SSO. I found one here on ebay in a size 12 and one here on poshmark in a size 6!
J. Crew Cece ballet flats available here. So comfy!
For the days leading up to the 4th of July, I decided to get a little festive by breaking out my old Tocca NYC polka dotted dress. This dress is so old, that I can’t even find it anywhere on ebay or poshmark to link to you. You know what they say, if the dress still fits, wear it. I paired it with my J. Crew Cece ballet flats.
Belated 4th of July!
What is the deal with the pineapple trend/craze that is everywhere this year? I noticed it last year and it appears to be a lot more prominent this year. It seems like flamingos are the new trend to replace pineapples, but for now I’m going to blog about my pineapple shirt again.
I have some real fancy photography skills here.
Pineapple Shirt available here.
American Apparel Coral Skirt/Dress is old and SSO. Similar here, here, here, here, here, and here.
J. Crew Cece Ballet Flats available here.
What Pineapple themed clothing do you have?
Would you wear a blouse to work that has a ping pong design on it? I would. It’s nice and lightweight for those hot summer days when you’re commuting into the city. Just throw a cardigan on over it when you get into your air conditioned office building.
Cardigan available here and here.
Ping Pong tank is old from Anthropologie. Found one on ebay here and poshmark here!
Skirt is an old Alice & Olivia stretch black pencil skirt and super comfortable. I normally stay away from pencil skirts because they always rip on me, but this one has plenty of stretch to it, so I don’t have to live in fear of clothing rips in public. Similar one here, here, here, and here.
Shoes available here. I wear these practically everyday to work because they’re super comfortable and match a ton of outfits.
I got this green skirt from Anthropologie a few years ago. I found some for sale on ebay available here and here. You can also look for it on another favorite place of mine named Poshmark. This skirt is amazing, it has a fun wild print, is super comfortable with an elastic waist, very breezy for those hot as hell summer days, and does not blow up in the wind tunnels of Boston.
I paired this skirt with another oldie in my wardrobe The Anthropologie Sidebent Tank. I found one here, here, here, and here. My Toms shoes in navy are available here, here, here, here, here, and here. I know Toms aren’t the most attractive shoe, but they’re discreet enough for a comfortable shoe and come in so many colors that they’re such a great summer staple for those of us that like to do a lot of walking and have to put their feet through public transportation.
On a side note, I haven’t forgotten to post about Iceland, I just have to wait until I have a new computer to get my pictures loaded for a post. Getting a new computers is $$$, so hence the delay. Hopefully I’ll have one by August!
The warmer weather is slowly hitting the Boston area and I decided to mix some prints together for work one day.
Hat available here. I love wearing a hat outside during the Summer to avoid getting sunburned on my lunch break or walking to and from the Train Station.
Blue Polarized Sunglasses available here, here, here, and here.
Shirt is old from Anthropologie. Similar one here, here, here, here, and here.
Skirt is old from Mod Cloth. Similar one here. Modcloth has tons of cute skirts!
Shoes from J. Crew available here.
I snagged this coffee t-shirt from Forever21 recently. You can get it here. I’ll admit I got strange looks when I wore it to work on a casual Friday, so now I’m sticking to using it as PJ wear.
The shirt and scarf in this post are definitely some of my favorite wardrobe staples. I think I’ve worn this shirt so many times that it’s almost time to retire it, but I can probably get one more summer out of it.
Earrings – old gift.
Jacket by Mackage. Sold out. This Free people one is super cute and vegan! I also love this one.
Scarf old by Le Petit Bateau. Similar available here and here.
Shirt is old from Urban Outfitters.
Pixie pant available here.
Flats available here.
Well Kraig and I had a blast in Iceland over Memorial Day Weekend. I’ll be putting up a travel post on Iceland soon, but I need to consolidate going through my pictures on my phone, gopro, and regular camera in order to put up a post here. In the meantime, I wanted to post some outfit details from last week.
One of the positives of working for a software company is that the dress code is pretty lax and I can get away with wearing an Aria from PLL inspired outfit to work for the day.
Chemise/Tunic is old, but similar style is available here. I’ve had my eye on this chemise from Anthro this Spring, but realized it’s very similar to the one I’m wearing here. The current one for sale at Anthro would probably look cute with white pants now or with jeans and brown boots in the fall too.
Pixie pants available here. These pants are so comfortable. I have them in navy and black and wear them under tunics all the time!
Flats Available here.
Belt is old, but I found some similar styles here, here, here, and here.
On Saturday, we went out with friends to celebrate Kraig’s birthday and I watched this YouTube video to do a no-heat summer up do for the occasion. I never seem to get things like the YouTubers, but it’s certainly an improvement from the frizz ball my hair would normally be in the humidity that day!
I wore my new favorite necklace available here, paired with a plain white tank from Express, jean shorts, and hot pink sandals available here.
