I usually go with a more casual look for work, but I decided to dress up a bit today. I threw on some Kenneth Cole flats (I've had for years!) instead of the usual Coach tennis shoes. The flats made my outfit dressier rather than if I would have worn the sneakers.
Hello dolls!! I am going out of town (state technically) for the weekend to watch my little cousin perform in a high school production of Beauty & The Beast. (She's 11 & still in elementary. I believe she's a tea pot in the show.) A musical is always an excuse to dress up, especially when I really get to dress up during the week (except for church on Sundays). (Though we're not allowed to wear jeans to work, except on Fridays, we are constantly moving around & on our feet, so I usually stick of pants with dressy tennis shoes or flats.) I love dresses & skirts, and I absolutely love the new peplum style that is all over the place this season (tops, skirts, dresses). I also love that mint green & aqua/turquoise are especially hot this season, because they are my favorite colors & I love seeing them everywhere! I was putting together outfit ideas on what to pack for my trip, and I put this one together. (I still might end up in a mint green flowered tube dress from Rue21- not 100% sure yet. This is just one of the ideas that I put together. I got this peplum "brocade" skirt from Forever21.com. (I haven't had an occasion to wear it yet.) My top is from Rue21 at my local mall. (I also have that same top in navy blue with white polka dots. I've worn the polka dotted one more than the aqua though.)
I also have matching Aqua shoes from Charlotte Russe.
Green has always been my favorite color, and I've been LOVING Mint Green lately. I was so excited to see that Mint Green is a hot color for Spring this year! I've been seeing this mint/turquoise green EVERYWHERE, and I've been loving it. About 90% of my current wardrobe is green stuff right now! (I know! I know! I need to add more color to my daily wardrobe, and I've honestly been trying to mix things up!) :P
Today, I wore my new "Mesh Back Boyfriend Tank" from American Eagle in Mint ($9.03 with their recent 40% sale). (It's more of a baby blue/green.) under a sheer button down blouse with a beaded color (the pretty collar convinced me to purchase it) from Rue 21. My pants are the Stella Ankle Zip Leggings from Express (LOVE!), and I'm wearing my Coach sneakers that I've had for 4 years and literally feel brand new. They are the most comfortable shoes ever & I wear them almost everyday to work. (They were definitely worth the $ because they are comfortable and still look new! QUALITY over QUANTITY! lol). My bracelet is from RUE 21, and I'm wearing a big Mint Green hairbow from Claires. I got a lot of compliments on my outfit at work today. That made me smile. :)
My Monday was good, and the nice, warm weather made it even better! YAY! Finally!! *GOODBYE COLD!* (Hope it stays nice! *knocks on wood*)
