Two-for-Tuesday on steroids

Today I thought it would be fun to do another two-for-Tuesday, mixing and matching a couple of pieces to see two completely different ways to wear an item.  But, I discovered that I’ve been wearing a lot of the same articles over and over.  So, today is actually a three-for-Tuesday.  I had hoped for this to be an infinity blog – where each outfit seamlessly transitions to the next for all eternity (or at least, the length of this post) – but there is a broken link that I would need one more outfit to fix.  Blogging goals.

First up, one of my favorite blouses from Old Navy, dressed up with a pleated skirt and jewelry courtesy of Rahab’s Rope.  I was at a work event, so whenever I do those, I try to display as much of our company’s products as possible; it’s a great sales technique (you can by these or similar pieces here).  I also just really love my plaid cherry shoes with this polka dot blouse.  Subtle print mixing at its finest.

Tear.)  They lived a good life. Of course, it’s not TOO casual, since I’m wearing heels and dangly earrings, but the outfit definitely has a completely different feel from the outfit above.

I want to embrace this menswear trend, but I feel weird every time I do it.  Maybe I should just accept that I can’t conquer every fashion trend that comes along, no matter how hard I try.
1 - graphic tee, blazerHow do you think I did?  Three distinct looks, or would you call me out on wearing the same clothes multiple times in a week (for the record, these three outfits were not all worn in the same week).  How about menswear – do you like, love it, absolutely hate it?  What’s your favorite piece to wear over and over?

80 Days of Summer: Bows for Dayz

Today’s outfit is a premature celebration of my favorite holiday – Independence Day (you probably saw that coming).  Fireworks, barbecues, cold drinks, and America – there’s nothing better.

I bought these cuties a year or two ago right before the 4th, and they’ve been a staple ever since.

I hope y’all are okay with the ol’ red, white, and blue, because this is a preview of my suitcase for the next 4 days…
