Top/shorts: Old Navy (Similar Top), Necklace: Forever 21, Shoes: Kelsi Dagger via TJ Maxx ($5 on clearance!!)



Oddly enough, I wore this outfit 3 days ago, and now we are in a freeze warning and I wore a scarf/coat/gloves yesterday. I’m so happy that it was warm enough to wear shorts and sandals for a day, even if the warm weather was just temporary. I’ve decided that many of my outfits are relatively boring, so I wanted to play with a mix of textures here to add interest. I’ve always shied away from mixing prints, but the snake-print shoes in a neutral color seemed to be a complimentary pair to the bright striped shirt. I got these shoes for $5 on clearance at TJ Maxx. Thank you TJ for feeding my obsession with wedge heels. As for the jewels, I cannot stand to wear a boatneck top without adding a big, blingy necklace, so this gave me the perfect opportunity to wear my new necklace. And by new, I mean it’s been sitting on my jewelry table for, like, 2 months while I waited for the perfect outfit to wear for its debut.
 Now, I heard a little rumor that our unseasonably warm weather is supposed to return soon, so I’m off to buy a bottle of sunless tanner and plan the perfect outfit to debut my leather shorts I told you about earlier!
P.S. Please excuse my lack of makeup and the fact that one of my eyes is nearly swollen shut. Hello, allergy season!

    Thank you, Joyce! And Catherine, I hope you find another one soon! I practically live in striped boat-neck tops!

    Aah yes, the old shorts one day, pants the next. Always fun, dressing for weather like this, isn’t it? I am now kicking myself for passing up on an orange striped shirt very close to this one – what a great classic piece!
