Sweater Weather

You know how, after days of 100 degree temperatures and high humidity that finally drops to a mild low 80s, you think it's okay to wear long sleeves again? Yep, that's what guided my wardrobe choices today. The weather is absolutely blissful, I'm thrilled by this never-worn remix, and I'm in one helluva good mood.

Pink sweater - Banana Republic / Floral tunic - Banana Republic / Olive skirt - Lane Bryant / Belt  - Banana Republic

This outfit just kinda fell together. The top/tunic is actually quite long, hitting at least mid-thigh, so I thought it best to tuck it in (which then also required a belt). Since I had already decided I could wear long sleeves today, I grabbed this thin pink sweater that paired perfectly with the print in the top.  I loved the idea of wearing these pretty florals with olive green, so I went straight to this oft-worn casual pencil skirt. I can't wait for the wardrobe options for this baby come fall!

Handbag - Tano "Minilisa" in Blue Marine / Sandals - Payless

We're moving next weekend. EEKS! We've been chipping away at packing already for the past couple weeks weeks, so we're doing okay. But it does complicate getting dressed everyday when half my clothes are packed up. So, I spent some time last night putting together outfits (including this one) through next weekend so 1) I don't have to think about it anymore and 2) I can pack the rest! The amount of stress that planning ahead takes off of me is astonishing. You'd think I'd do it more often.

Ring - TJ Maxx / Earrings - The Limited / Necklace - local boutique

All this is to say, too, that I won't be blogging much the last week of July and maybe even the first week of August. If I am not able to get a few outfit shots in (because I'll be in cut-offs and sweaty tees), I MAY try to take a few snapshots of the new place! In the meantime, though, I'm looking forward to the outfits I've created by, once again, putting together pieces I've never thought to combine before. I love how this blog stretches my styling creativity - and not my bank account! =)

Especially when I need to spend money on a new living room...


  1. I love the mix of colors in your outfit--the pink and purple look so pretty with the olive. And I love your hair! I'm trying to grow my (short) hair out, and I'd love it to get to your length. So thanks for being my hair-spiration :)

  2. I love the olive green with the florals, that's such a lovely contrast! The pink sweater is beautiful on you too.

    Good luck with the packing and everything! I know how much of a pain that is. Take your time and we'll be here when you do have time to post. :)

  3. I love pink and olive green together, though I'm a little jealous of y our thin sweater wearing's still sweltering and humid as anything here in NJ! And your hair looks so cute!

  4. I'm loving this. It looks really great on your figure, and I love the unique color combo!

  5. I love the way you combine different colors and put together outfits!  I've copied so many of your looks over the past few months with things I already had in my closet but would not have thought of putting together.  For instance, I have a long navy floral tank similar to this one and I rarely wear it, never thought of tucking it in and pairing it with olive.  Now I will do just that!  Keep the ideas coming :)


Thank you so much for commenting! Reading what you have to say truly makes my day!
