April 10: Inspired By...

My adorable friend H arrived at Bible Study one week wearing a chambray top over a loose flouncy skirt and paired with boots. I gushed over the cuteness sharing that I have some spaghetti strap dresses I'd love to make work appropriate in a similar way. She encouraged me to try it and I finally did! One of my coworkers thought it was a skirt which makes perfect sense and I loved that I'm getting more wear out of this lightweight dress since I am more frequently in workout clothes on weekends than a fun springy dress.

April 9: Nautical

I wasn't supposed to buy anything this month as I waited for Lilly and Milly but when I had some free time with my sister, we ended up at H&M and they had this adorable nautical top for a bargain price. I *had* to have it! I knew it would be cool with my white jeans as shown here and white pencil skirt but I think it will go with other blue and red bottoms as well. The only problem is that I feel like it should be worn with boot shoes, a style I've never favored and thus do not possess. I will need to experiment to see if any other shoes would fit the look.

April 2: Stripes with Colors

I'm a bit behind on my posts but I'm trying to catch up by posting this older post. I really liked the vivid colors featured here with bright pink and bright blue paired with a simple grey striped top as a neutral contrast. Though I fall back on black and white a lot, I do like incorporating colors into my workweek outfits and I think this one was a great success.
