Floral Note

The end of the season is almost here! I can taste it! Though the performance season (finally) winds down next week (but only after a very long 4-day stretch of busy days AND nights, I should mention), the craziness in my world doesn't really quiet down until the end of the commencement season next month. But only a month to go! I can do it!

Jacket - LOFT / floral top - Anthropologie / Denim pencil skirt - Lane Bryant

This outfit has been a long time coming, the pieces of which were inspired by Kendi. I've just loved the floral and olive jacket pairing so much that I simply had to recreate it. The fashion gods thus smiled upon my quest when I came upon a single size of this top in the sale room at Anthropologie - and t'was my size! Fate, people. Fate. The olive jackets I have in number, so that one was easy. I only decided to go with a skirt in this iteration because 1) tucked-in shirts only look good on me when worn with skirts and 2) I had performances this morning and I wanted to be a little dressier than jeans. So, this dressy denim skirt fit the bill nicely instead.

Ring - Limited / Handbag - Tano "Minilisa" in Blue Marine (

I must admit that I first donned boots this morning, but I really only did so because I hadn't, er, shaved in a while... I had the chance to pop home for lunch, so I took the opportunity to shave then. (I would have needed to do so tonight or tomorrow morning anyway, so I'm glad I got it out of the way!) I promise you that these little peep too flats are much cuter and more flattering.

Belt - Kohl's (?) / Peep toes - Payless / Earrings - LOFT

Until my next post (whenever that might be?) I just want to thank all my readers, new and old, quiet or outspoken, for bearing with me! Your kind words keep me keepin' on!


  1. You always look so put together! I love your twist on Kendi's look, the skirt and peep toes look just as great as her jeans! I was wondering where you got to, I always look forward to your posts!

  2. Lovely blouse and jacket, you are always creative with your outfits, i really like it!
