Double Wide....

Purchasing these was definitely a departure from most of the bottoms that I own.  I love the cool sailor pant button detail at the front, and the double wide leg opening.  I didn't want my outfit to be too fussy so I threw on one of my go to shirts from the Gap, my favorite mustard scarf, and my new favorite chunky bracelet. Instant fuss free outfit!

A Little Navajo....

I love these boots.  They are the perfect mix of raw materials and would look great with just about any casual outfit for fall.  And check out the detail on the back, LOVE!!

Electric Orange.....

When I saw this skirt a couple weekends ago I immediately knew that it had to be mine.  Not only was it the perfect shade of electric orange its was $10.00 with no tax.  How could I not buy it right?  We had about 30 minutes worth of rain this morning and it was the perfect opportunity to break out my wellies which have barely seen the light of day since its been so dry here.  You will probably see a version of this outfit again for Fall.  The wellies switched for boots, and an added layer with my camo jacket or even a v neck sweater, instant transition to Fall.  Happy Monday Everyone!

A Little Pattern Mixing...

I found this top last weekend while doing a little tax free shopping.  It happens to be one of my favorite times of the year.  :)  It reminded me of a very similar top from Zara that I loved but never ended up buying.  Not wanting to go with a typical black pair of shoes, which is what most people would do,  I opted for my favorite pair of leopard heels and a pop of color with my pink belt.

I Love the Idea.....

Of using crochet scarves to make oversized bows.   I can't wait to try this when it gets a bit cooler outside.

Denim and Stripes....

I found this skirt in the back of my closet the other day.  It's one of those styles that I love but forgot that I had because it got stuck between some other clothes.   I really need to start moving things around so I maximize my wardrobe.  Anyone have any suggestions on the easiest way to do this?  Anyway here goes my denim vest again I love how versatile it is and trust me that this isn't the last outfit you will see it with.  :)

Fall Cravings....

You all know that I love me a pair of Jessica Simpson shoes.  I was browsing the site today when fell in love with a couple new styles.  The last pair is definitely my favorite and come in a couple of other colors.  All styles have now added to my wish list for Fall.  Now through 8/29 you can use code 20FALL for 20% off any order.

What I Love About Your Look.....

Its simple and fun with just the right amount of accessories.  Most of all, I love the oversized armholes that make this a racer back top.  I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend!

P.S.- For those of you that loved the shorts from last weeks post I was able to find a very similar pair here.

Printed Pants....

There was something about these pants that I loved when I saw them on the rack at the store.  They are subtle yet over the top all at the same time.  I wanted to keep it a little on the more subtle side today so I threw on a white tee and a few accessories and voila simple yet fun!

Thrifty Finds: The Midi Skirt....

OK, so I am a little obsessed with midi length skirts especially when I can get them at a thrift store for a fraction of the cost that their new unused counterparts would be.  Since I am not very tall with super long legs I always make sure to pair them with one of my many platform heels to make sure that the cute look I have envisioned in my head doesn't turn out frumpy.  After putting this outfit together I kind of felt like a modern version of a librarian.

Dark Plum and Mustard Lime....

This morning was one of those mornings that I just didn't know what to wear.  I saw these plum crop skinnies that I had yet to wear and decided to build an outfit around them.  Since I have been living in white tees this summer I thought that one would be appropriate for this outfit and then topped it all off this mustard lime cardi.  Casual and comfortable.  Just how I like it every now and then.

Who, What, Wear.....

Earlier this evening I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr of Who, What, Wear at Scoop in Dallas. The ladies were so cute, very nice, and totally down to earth.  I purchased one of their books for my first official book signing event ever and snapped a quick pic with the ladies, boy what a smile I have right?  Anyway, afterwards I took a couple pics of my outfit.  I am loving this new mint skirt I bought, the outfitting choices are endless.

The Other Half....

Do you remember when I talked about thrifting skirt sets and wearing them as separates, here?  Well I finally had the chance to wear the other half of the set.  I was out running errands over the weekend and decided to keep it super casual.  After I looked at these pictures I realized that my purse doesn't really go to well with these shoes but I didn't feel like changing all my stuff to a new one, you know how it is.  Note to self for the next time.  Happy Hump Day!

Thrifty Finds....

I haven't been thrifting in awhile so last week I finally had a bit of time after work to browse in one of my favorite stores.  Boy, did I find a couple great gems. This shirt being one of them.  I love the bright red color and most of all the storm flap detail at the front.  To top it all off I took a peek at the label and it was a vintage DVF.  Have you found any great gems while thrifting lately?
