Camel brown leather is growing on me. I'm still a cognac brown gal, but, camel brown is undeniably a great color for Spring!

The wrap dresses are back! Late Spring and summer just really lends itself to wrap dresses! Because it's hot, you want to wear as little as possible but you also want to still look put together and a wrap dress just kinda does that for you.

I clearly like puffy sleeves, and I'm pretty obviously attracted to cool sleeves on tops and dresses. You've seen this dress before and I layered a pink button down skirt over the blue gingham dress to really highlight the cute sleeves, belted it all together and added a hat and coordinated shoes for a cohesive look! I don't wear a lot of blue though it looks good on me, because I like the warm, rich colors, but I can make an exception for it in gingham.

It's late May already, who would have imagined May would go so fast! 2021 is definitely getting the message 2020 didn't: please end.

I found a skirt I thought I dreamed of. It's an A-line denim skirt and it only took months of near obsessive searching on Poshmark to find one that wasn't long. I don't mind long skirts, clearly, but long denim skirt reminds of me of the 90s and I'm not so in to the 90s trend. I'd be trendy, for sure, but I wouldn't like it. I don't know the brand of the skirt (sorry in advance!) since there is no tag in it, but it feels like a high amount of denim but not super rigid. The same seller also had this top, so clearly, I won.

This is an example of me just putting on whatever I want and not really caring. Big hats, big collars, bows, puffy sleeves, corset-inspired belts? I'm in.

Dancing my way through the week as if it's not Monday and as if I'm already mentally exhausted. I don't know about all of you, but I am have been so mentally drained lately and it takes so much to be able to formulate cohesive thoughts and sentences. I just feel like sleeping! I'm fine, of course, I'm just mentally tired.

My husband saw this skirt that I got, which I scored from ThredUp, and said it reminded him of The Flintstones and now I cannot unsee it. I can't unsee it, I'm Fred Flintstone. 

This skirt is originally from ModCloth and it's so comfortable and I love the color. I don't think orange is just a Fall color and I think it can definitely be a late Spring and Summer color! But, I gotta admit it's going to be fantastic in Autumn.

The same print. The same ruffled style. Both thrifted, years apart. How cool is this! Of course the top is a more grey and the skirt is a true black, but still! I didn't mean to get a matching set of things, albeit, years apart, but, I really love it! This top is perfect for those sunny days and warmth and the skirt is such a cool twist on the black midi. Together, it's cool girl matching set style and I'll be rocking this all summer long.

The sheer print, the square neck and the sleeves is what did it for me. Can't you tell? When I saw this dress on Poshmark I just had to snatch it up because it's utter perfection!

How to wear black, my way. I own black, of course, but over the years, and especially in 2020, where I had the time to really hone in to my colorful and cohesive style, black has been replaced by brown as a grounding and neutral color. But, I'd be a liar if I didn't say that black was a color I appreciate it!

I like to wear black as a texture, like in this outfit. The wool of the hat with the vinyl of the top and the faux leather of the skirt are cohesive but also different enough to keep the eye entertained. The white blouse helps, too, of course, with it's giant bow, but the star of the show is definitely the different textures of black.

I'm excited to feel the sun on my bare shoulders! I'm fully vaccinated and I'm looking forward to smearing sunscreen all over my body and sitting on the steps of the monument downtown while eating lunch or dining al fresca in the late summer.

Happy May!

This is such a low effort outfit for me that yields a high reward. Let me explain:

This outfit it as basic as a top+skirt=outfit formula. But, where it yields a high reward is with the look of the top and skirt. The top is not a basic white tee or a button down, it's a white blouse with sheer sleeves and low scoop neck that makes it more visually interesting. The skirt is not a basic pink a-line, or a pleated midi, that I gravitate towards. It's more casual, it's a button down skirt so, again, it's more visually interesting than other options. And, then, going for a brown to ground the outfit instead of black makes it a light and bright outfit. 

The goal of an outfit is to make it interesting and I'm all about finding ways to make basic outfits feel elevated without looking like I tried too hard.
