watercolor racerback & skinnies
Yesterday was a bit of a rough Monday for me, to the point that I began to feel the need to something drastic, like dye my hair dark brown or get a tattoo or adopt a puppy. While some of those might work ok, the feeling mercifully passed (for the moment), thanks in large part to good fun with good friends later in the evening.
I woke up this morning feeling good, too, and once I got dressed, I felt great. When you like the way you look, you carry yourself completely differently; you walk with confidence, hold your head higher, stand up straighter, and maybe even strut.
“Confidence, Cohen!” (Oh, how I miss The OC!)
Anyway, check the look:
Don’t worry – I really do have 2 legs. I’m just standing like a crazy person!
Lots of layering happening, which always makes for a visually interesting look. LOVE this watercolor-like Xhilaration semi-sheer tank – so much so that I bought it in a size L because they had no Ms (there are several here, but I don’t see my print, which was obviously my favorite – click thumb at right for larger). I think the L still works since it’s so flowy (also a bit of a “mullet tank,” I guess, as it’s shorter in the front and longer in the back, hah!) and bright in its design. I’m wearing a simple Mossimo long & lean tank underneath (size M) and threw my purple New York & Co. cardi over it since it’s usually cool in my office. I later thought I should’ve chosen a different color, as this is a lot of purple/darks, but oh well. My fave new skinnies are by L.e.i. (size 15) and were $13 at Walmart (and only $8 online). I will not apologize for Walmart attire at these prices and comfort/cuteness levels; I really will not. Deal with it, world.
I cannot wait to wear this sans cardi in the summer!
And check the cute racerback (a style I’m not always that fond of):
I just love how this top feels, too. It’s so lightweight and soft.
Oh yes, oh YES, the grey, suede Steve Madden booties. <3 So far, so good on walking in these today! But ask me again when I’m trekking home from the South Loop around 11:00 tonight…
These earrings (from Presence boutique, I believe) are almost too matchy-matchy, but they go SO well – and I love them and don’t get to wear them enough – that I had to wear ’em. First Illinois state quarter necklace: Jack Landstra, second longer leaf necklace (cut off here – visible above, though): H&M, amber ring: Grandma. I unintentionally have a bit of a leaf motif happening with the longer necklace, ring, and top, which has some leaves in its pattern (see thumbnail above), but I think it works, yeah?
Tonight: the last regular episode of LOST before the series finale on Sunday. (CRYING IN ADVANCE.)
