Weekend Sneeze!













I caught the flu on Friday afternoon and have been in bed all weekend sniveling, watching Pretty Little Liars, and catching up on my June magazine subscriptions. Today, I ventured out of the house to pick up some items to start redecorating my bedroom and decided I could brave an outfit post. It has been so pretty outside and I wish I could be out by the waterfront, antiquing, or wine tasting, so I chose a bit of a dressed up summer outfit that was still comfy. This orange-striped top felt like an unlikely combination with this pocketed olive gap skirt, but when I paired them I liked the blousy combination. Defying the black and brown rule (perhaps it was my fever?), I also wore these new, comfy Target loafers. I absolutely love them and they come in four colors, natural (as pictured), pink, teal, and a beautiful blue floral pattern. 

Top: Forever 21; Skirt: The Gap; Shoes: Target; Ring: Antique

  2. Hi KW!
    Thank you for the follow. I just gave you a follow back and wandered through your previous archives. What are you talking about? Your skin tone can seriously go with both warm tone and cool tone outfit! I'm serious here. You're so lucky with that skin tone. Embrace it and love it. Try kust a small part of yellow in your outfit first if you want to do smth different. You'll like how summery it feels. I promise :)
    Be confident and stay pretty ^___^
