Feeling Flowy in a Maxi and Blouse

When I first put this outfit together, I thought “Is this me?” “Is this too trendy?” But, one of the things I always try to do…step outside of my comfort zone.

With maxi skirts in the summer, I never paired them with a flowy shirt. Why? I have no idea. But I have a couple of coworkers I gathered inspiration from, and the result was this outfit.

Another plus – it was so comfortable! 🙂

The last two years, I’ve been obsessed with button ups. I remember a time where I think I owned one white button up shirt and that was it. I’m ashamed to admit how many button ups I have now! There are such versatile shirts – dress them up or down, layer them, wear them untucked, tucked in. Endless possibilities. And how can you not love a cute heart print? (And it’s on clearance at J. Crew Factory!)

And these booties I got at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer have been worn a ton already! They were a great investment and being Coach, I know they are going to last forevaaaaaaa!

Dressing Up a Sweatshirt

Well, hello there! It’s been forevaaaaaaa! Work life is calming down slightly, so I at least have time to put a blog post together. Hooray!

I have to admit, I haven’t jumped on the sweatshirt bandwagon, but the one from the Altuzarra collection at Target caught my eye. I love the silky fabric on the front. So I guess that wouldn’t classify as a complete sweatshirt, huh? 🙂

I think there are so many possibilities with this shirt. Obviously you could pair it with jeans like I did. But, I did add a statement necklace and booties to dress it up a little for work. The Target site shows it with a black pencil skirt, but I think a black pencil skirt is such a safe choice. What about hunter green? Or a purple? Y’all know I love color!

Do you love my baby pony tail?! I haven’t been able to do this for seven years!  I love it short, but being able to pull it back is AHHH-MAZING.
