Today’s outfit is nothing special – sweater from American Eagle, Mossimo jeggings *shudder* from Target – but today’s post is not about the clothes. No, today’s post is about the shoes.
Hey there! I’m off to a pumpkin-carving party (it’s B.Y.O.P.), so I’ve gotta make this quick, but here’s what I’m wearing:
Festive but hopefully not over-the-top!
Yesterday I experienced a little bit of “fashion karma,” so to speak. Or something of the sort. I’m not 100% sure on what to call it yet, but what I’m referring to is the phenomenon of finding something you really like and walking away from it, only to have it worm its tempting little self back into your life. Let me explain.
A while back, I saw Noche En La Copa dress by Edme & Esyllte at Anthropologie – on sale for $69.99, down from $138. I tried it on because I liked the colors and silhouette, and though it fit, I couldn’t justify the price.
When my friend Kari wanted to stop in Anthro yesterday, I glanced around the sale racks as usual and spotted one single Noche En La Copa dress left. In a size 8 – the size I had tried on. And it was marked down to $29.99. That, my friends, is fashion karma: being rewarded for sensibility and patience with an irresistible low-low price later on!
For $30, I think this is totally adorable, no?
Despite the fact that this dress isn’t really vintage or retro at all, I get a candy-coated, soda-shop vibe from it – perhaps it’s the colors or the shapes, which remind me of candies or fizzy soda bubbles.
In any case, it’s definitely light and flowy and fun.
What’s that I spy after two days of rain & gloom?
Why, it’s the sun! Thank heavens! Hot and humid? Ok, we’re used to it. Hot and humid AND rainy? Ugh, PASS. But today I feel as summery as the weather in this easy-breezy look.
Hello, readers. It’s been a while! Sorry for the delay; I was home for the holiday weekend visiting with family and friends. But I am back. With a vengeance!
Naut It top by Blue Bird (size M), jeans: American Eagle (size 10).
What do you think?
I threw together this nautical look for bopping around today. I absolutely love the nautical trend, though I hesitate to even call it a trend because it’s so classic. Like the ocean tide, its popularity ebbs and wanes, though right now it seems to be experiencing a surge as anchors and other similarly nautical items fill the racks.
