Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week! So, for any new readers, I’m a teacher home for the summer so this week I have simple shorts and tops outfits to show you. I only have flat lays because…
We have our 17 year old German cousin staying with us in our guest room. My husband has two smallish closets in our master bedroom and I have the two smallish closets in the guest room which is where you see my full length mirror photos. Essentially our guest room is like my walk in closet. Gotta look at the bright side, right? I can lay things out on the bed and it is really nice to have – right across from my bedroom. Before she arrived, I picked out outfits to put in the master bedroom so I wouldn’t have to bother her.
This first outfit consists of my Target Universal Thread drawstring chambray shorts and a floral flouncy sleeve knit top that I found on the clearance rack at Versona for $8.99. The Birks are consignment from maybe 5 years ago. The earrings are from a local boutique called Revelry. They come in many colors and I fell in love with the tassels.
Next we have old Old Navy (haha) white linen shorts and a gingham blouse from Loft last year. I recently paid $5 to have an armpit hole repaired. The leather or faux leather feather earrings are from a local boutique Apricot Lane that I think is a chain. The Birks are this year’s Mother’s Day gift.
Next we have the same linen shorts from Old Navy from years ago but in black with a floral blouse from TJ Maxx last year. The black tassel earrings are from Amazon last winter and one of the bracelets was $1 at a consignment shop and the other is probably 10 years old so I don’t remember.
Finally, we have a floral pair of shorts from Old Navy and a simple Lucky brand consignment top. I have my consignment Tory Burch sandals ($70 about 5 years ago?) and my Nickel and Suede earrings in cognac and my cognac studded bracelet. Nickel and Suede are really the best quality and thickest leather earrings I own. But, I have found others that are much less expensive that I think are fine for me. I’m excited to support All Things New Creations on Etsy – Melanie Shankle’s sister from The Big Mama Blog.
O.k., so what do you think for cute and easy to throw on?
I really think it’s that time of summer where you are starting to get tired of every clothing item in your closet!
Here’s what I will be doing:
-Trying to wear everything I have for summer or donating it
-Seeing what will work for school appropriate outfits
-Looking for athleisure stuff on sale – that can be used for exercise but also looks o.k. to wear out
-Starting to inventory and make lists of fall needs for me but mostly my boys. I think I’m o.k.
-Finally, trying to avoid the Nordstrom sale hype. I tend to feed off of other’s excitement!
Here’s what’s coming in the mail for me!
-I purchased a gently used Madewell transport tote for $30 plus shipping from a blogger for fall. I have been wanting this for a long time and think it will be so cute. It is cognac leather with a black stripe down the middle.
-2 monogram decal stickers to put on my Yetis – I have a water Yeti and a coffee Yeti for school that I just love. I thought the stickers would make them prettier.
I will show you these in Friday Favorites I bet!
Thanks for reading! Leave me a comment!
