mismatched

p5.jpg I like things that are different without being out of place, things that stand out without being too weird.

Actually, I take that back. Weird is great.

I’ve had these shorts for a few summers, always pairing them with a plain colored tee and pearl earrings. This season, soft shorts seem to be everywhere from the runway to Target. I don’t hate it.

I pulled these cute little babies out of my dresser the other morning, and could not (for the life of me), find my favorite white blouse.

I literally tore up my entire room, dug through every drawer in my dresser, and even scoured the deep depths of my closet. It was nowhere.

Even though I’m still a little bitter about the loss of a very good friend blouse, that wild goose chase led me to something even better: a wonderful mismatched pairing of floral and stripes and plenty of darling.

The little navy dots on the shorts go perfectly with the stripes in one of my favorite tees. If heaven was a shirt, it would be this one. (I like it so much that I bought it in every color last summer)

Sadly, it’s all sold out on American Eagle, but I did a little research and found ya’ll an (almost) exact copy on Land’s end. Just check the outfit details all the way at the bottom!

Also, I found these pretty gems at Old Navy for TWO DOLLARS. At a price like that, you just can’t say no: grab yourself a pair before they’re all gone!

See how great adding a little mismatch to your life outfit can be?

I hope your week is full of weird in the most wonderful way. After all, what’s better than a little of the unexpected?

Love,

*sorry for the “similar” friends, all the originals are sold out!

all that glitters

Holidays are the perfect excuse to wear a little extra sparkle. Whether this comes from glittery sweaters, gemstone jewelry, or the bubbles in champagne, Christmas celebrations are all about beautiful light.

This month (and just about every other month of the year), I am loving vintage-inspired jewelry.

Statement earrings to be specific.

Now let’s take a peek at some of my favorites!

Some of these darling pieces are recently purchased, and some really ARE vintage!

This pair happens to be one of my very favorites. They match just about everything, which is a VERY good quality in jewelry if you ask me!

Every Christmas, my sisters and I do a secret santa exchange to save a little money. These blue gems were given to me this year by my sister Chloe. I would say that she has expert gift giving taste, but I actually helped her out a little (ok actually a lot)…earrings66

The next two pairs are also blue and also from Target (I’m sensing a trend here).

These pearl and gold beauties are another vintage find. I just love how versatile and effortlessly classy they are!

Wishing you a lovely, light filled holiday with a little added sparkle!
