happy wednesday and hello to all the new followers and commenters! i started this blog for me, to help me streamline my style a little better and to get more comfortable in my own skin. i can't believe that people outside my family read it and actually take the time to comment so thank you:)

this outfit features two anthro items that have hit the sale section. i don't think the tank is still available online but my local store had lots of them in the sale section. i should have probably sized down because the straps are too long but i didn't try it on in the store and i guessed on the size. eventually i will have the straps shortened but i really wanted to wear it this week. the cardigan went on sale yesterday. i love this sweater! i bought it full price and have never regretted it. i've paired it with so many things in my closet. i'm contemplating getting the gray one but i've made a decision to buy only the things on my anthro wishlist and there is so much pretty that i want right now. curse you anthropologie!!!!!

i paired it with this denim pencil skirt that i've had for a million years. to be honest after reviewing these photos i hated the way it looked! the skirt is bit too short and too clingy. it's a little too bootylicious! i think it's time to retire it:) i ended up changing into a pair of skinnies before i left the house:O

omg...these shoes!!! i've seen them on several bloggers that are way younger and cooler and i wasn't sure about them. i kept looking at them online. i wanted them but the price was a bit more than i wanted to spend. then i found a coupon for 30% off plus free shipping so i caved. i loooove them! the leather is so soft and they are comfortable. i put them on yesterday as soon as the ups man dropped them off and i wore them until about 9:30 last night with no aches or pains in my legs or feet.

i feel so patriotic in my red/white/ivory/blue outfit today. the fourth of july is one of my favorite holidays. warm weather, barbeque, fireworks...does it get better than that?

  2. Oh lady, you are making me want the Field Game cardi ... you look perfectly prepped for the patriotic weekend!

  3. Those shoes are amazing and I love this outfit! I think the skirt looks great on you, but now that I'm an old married lady, I usually shun super tight stuff too.

  8. You look great! I have been wanting that top for a while but I have managed to talk myself out of it. After seeing it on you I think I am going to get it! I have the cardi and together the look is irresistible!
