Faux Peplum

Top: Swapped; Skirt: F21; Earrings: H&;M (old); Belt: H&M; Shoes: Zappos

Hope your week got off to a great start! 

I thought it would be fun to wear a vaguely patriotic outfit in honor of the Olympics.  I also decided to fake a peplum style top since I don't currently own one.  I love watching the Olympic coverage.  I have favorite sports I enjoy watching (track and field, swimming, tennis, gymnastics), but don't mind watching just about any competition covered.  I know it's sounds cliche, but I think that every athlete that makes it to the Olympics is a winner.  You don't just wake up one day and decide to be a world class athlete, it takes years of hard work, focus and vision.

Now if only there was a fashion styling Olympics, I'd definitely compete ; - )

Peachy Dots

Shorts: thrifted; Top: thrifted; Wedges: Target; Earrings: Top Shop

Hi beautiful people! Hope your week is going well. My teenage self would get a kick out of these shorts because I rarely wore shorts as a high school student or even as a college student. To be honest, to this day I feel more comfortable wearing shorts with tights and boots in the winter. But I'm starting to realize that I really ought to wear shorts (without tights) more often while it's still age appropriate for me to wear them on the shorter side.


I'm a little behind on my blog reading but hope to catch up this week.

Dress: swapped; Belt: H&M; Shoes: The Loft; Necklace: Eastern Market vendor

Hot summer days call for simple outfits...I almost left this dress on the rack at a recent swap because it looked kind of plain on the hanger but now I'm happy that I didn't. All the dress needed was a belt and a (brightly colored) necklace. I love simple outfits especially during the summer months. I will definitely remix this dress soon with different accessories.  



Happy Wednesday!

Shopping my Closet

Top: H&M (old);Vest: swapped; Skirt: F21; Shoes: Loft; Clutch: vintage; Jewelry: H&M; 
Watch: Francesca's Collections

Happy Monday! Does anybody else feel that the weekend ended way too fast though there was (an American) holiday last week?  Oh, just me?

On another note, I "found" this forgotten top in a drawer earlier this summer.  I decided to hold on to it for a while instead of taking it to the last few clothing swaps I've attended.  I think that discovering forgotten clothing items is almost as fun as going shopping for me without the angst of parting with money...

Here's to a positive productive week!

Pink, Black and White

Cardigan: H&Dress: Vintage; Necklace: Eastern Market vendor; Shoes: Zappos

Hi friends! I hope folks that live in the DC area weren't affected by the storm and have power. I feel so grateful that I didn't lose power in Friday's storm.


Cardigans are still necessary even in 90+ degree heat because of arctic air conditioning...but I'm just happy being a bit chilly while indoors is the only issue I'll have to deal with today. Stay well hydrated and wear your sunscreen!
