Early Summer Outfits

Here are a few of the early summer outfits I’ve been wearing.

Banana Republic Floral Tank

I love this silk floral tank from Banana Republic and paired it with a cobalt blue cardigan and my dark skinny cropped jeans.

Hot Pink Blouse

I was feeling a little “Rocker Chic” with this blouse from Target.  I like the way it overlapped and the bright pop of color.

Yellow Tee and Chevron Scarf

This outfit was actually inspired from something I saw on Pinterest with a basic yellow tee and a black and white chevron scarf.  I had to add the grey military style jacket because the weather was a bit cool that day.

I got this Roses are Radiant skirt on sale from ModCloth and felt so feminine in it.  I love the red envelope tee from OldNavy that I paired with it.  All day I was twirling slightly and loving the feel of the long skirt.

May Outfits

Here are some of the things I’ve been wearing this month.

Old Navy printed tee

I love these T-shirts available at Old Navy right now.  I got it in all three colors, mint, white and pink.  They are on sale right now for only $8.

Banana Republic Gemma Dress

I wore this dress for a big presentation to some higher ups, but when I got to work in the morning I found out the presentation was postponed.  I’ll have to pull it back out when it gets rescheduled.

Stitch Fix Wrap Dress

I seriously love this dress.  The fabric is so nice and it lays nicely and is the perfect length.

Stitch Fix Wrap Top

I had mixed feelings about this wrap top from Stitch Fix.  It looks cute from some angles and my husband told me it was flattering, but then I’d catch a glimpse in the mirror at other times and have to readjust because it was not sitting in a flattering way.  It is soft and comfortable though.

I bought this top and necklace when I was in Hawaii at the factory shops.  I love the colors and the silky fabric.  It paired well with a navy cardigan.

Orange Gap Dress

I bought this dress last year and never wore it.  I had such reservations but decided to pull it out this year and wear it at least once.  It’s cute on and the color and pattern are nice, but it’s too short for me to feel comfortable and when I sit down it hikes way up which was uncomfortable at work when we have casual meetings in my office with me facing people in my chair.  I have already donated it to charity after a closet clean out.

Boden Dress

I love Boden and this dress is fabulous.  The fabric is soft and I love the polka dot pattern.  It also came in a long length which is perfect for me to wear to work.  I threw on a soft purple cardigan and some black wedge sandals and was comfortable at work.  It’s on clearance right now for $70.56.

I also really love this dress which is also currently on clearance for $70.56.  I felt very chic wearing this to work and love the way it flatters my figure.

Stitch Fix Top and Mint Jeans

I wore this new stitch fix top with mint jeans as the cards had suggested and a jean jacket.  I liked the overall look.

 

White after Labor Day!

A part of me wanted to break an antiquated fashion rule today and wear white the day immediately following Labor Day.  It gave me a chance to wear the new teal blouse from my latest Stitch Fix and pair it with these amazingly comfortable white knit jeans.  Following the advice on the card that came with this blouse I pulled out my blue chunky necklace from Banana Republic and an old silver bangle.  Perfect outfit for breaking rules, and comfortable for a day back at work after a nice long weekend.

Patio Skirt

A few months back I started to get into the whole maxi skirt/maxi dress trend.  I love the maxi because it is cool and comfortable on hot days, but also keeps me warm in the air conditioning.  It works well for my pear shape, because it drapes nicely from my hips giving me a nice clean silhouette.  I can easily pair this one with my usual jean jacket, a chambray shirt, or cardigan.
