Thank you thank you thank you for all your kind words and sweet wishes. It just means so much and puts a big smile on my face. It’s amazing seeing how loving people are!
All of a sudden it got cold again. What up with that?? (check out this for more of the phrase) I thought we were all done with the wind factor and the coolness, especially since this little lady was ready to rock out her sandals and spring flats. I guess I’ll have to wait another day.
Good thing I found this little blouse while on my scavenger hunt at F21 over the weekend. I have no idea how I managed to locate it and not have it blend in with all the other 5834 cream shirts that were smooshed together in one tiny rack. It feels so ethereal and lady-like, and surprisingly adult-looking when compared to the other items I tried on (hint hint, blue polka dotted mini skirt I’m calling you out). I appreciate that it comes with a built-in cami so I don’t have to layer on, and it’s silk, which is kind of unheard of in F21 territory. When I got dressed this morning I thought about pairing it with flared jeans, but wanted to dress it up a bit and since I did the blue skirt thing yesterday, I thought I’d take it up a notch and pair it with an equally-feminine skirt, like this one:
f21 lace blouse
target ruffle skirt
anthropologie berry bush tights
anthropologie sweater-cuffed booties
I found the booties while stalking the October catalog and they randomly popped up. In a size 8. I’m typically a 9. But I’m stubborn and when free shipping is active it makes it that much easier to “give it a try” and surprisingly the fit is good! I know the reviews said they run small but with Anthro shoes I always have to size down at least a half a size and even with the Bouquet-of-Roses I could have gotten an 8 for a better fit. Lesson learned: never underestimate the power of will. And free shipping.
