10 Weeks: Stripey

Monday, July 23, 2012
Shade Clothing shirt, $16; flower c/o Hot Magnets; thrifted skirt, $3 (similar longer); vintage bag, $15 (similar); Target clog sandals (similar)

I wore this last Sunday to church. (You guys! Kristine and her husband are in our ward!!!)

I haven't made much effort in my outfits lately and the one time I (kinda) did, I needed to document it, dangit. (Hence, the lack in updates...)

So, I've been toying with the idea of NOT belting my skirts...specifically, skirts with belt loops...specifically, this one. Sometimes a belt is too suffocating after too many pancakes. Sometimes it's nice to let that belly just hang, okay? That's where the flower comes in.. It takes your eyes off the middle and to the side. I know. I'm a genius. You're welcome.

Talk to the man hand.
Oh, and this.

  16. I rarely comment on the blogs I follow because I just follow for inspiration but I HAVE to tell you how much this Target Clogs of yours have tortured me!!! I LOVE them I love them so much I'm pretty sure I've looked all over the darn internet for a pair like them!!! I have had NO luck so I've found a pair I hope to diy a little to make them look like these but I just hope you know how amazingly painful these shoes are!! (painful only for me because I can't have them!)

  30. That bag is FABulous! I love it when someone thrifts a bag that I would love to own new or used. It gives me courage for the thrift hunt.

  31. I'm ashamed to say that I'm completely lost and wondering why everyone is asking if you're pregnant....? What did I miss....?


    Cute outfit! I agree on the belts, especially in the Summer-just too suffocating!

  35. No doubt Elaine!!! Are you announcing something???

    ReplyDelete
  36. ARE YOU PREGGERS?!?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  37. So...this is an announcement, right? Because I don't want to be all, "OMG CONGRATULATIONS YAAAAY!" and have you be like, "Um, what are you talking about?"
