The Embellished Tee Goes to the Market

7.1.2010 ~ Thursday ~ Hello July

Ann Taylor Loft is having a really good sale right now — I got this shirt at the 40% off everything sale and currently sale items are 50% off!  I almost never wear tees like this but I like the beading.  Maybe I’ll go back and look for more embellished shirts! 

I wore this to the farmers market and then to do errands about town.  This is a not too fashiony look and really just summer comfortable.  Temperatures are out. of. control. here, and I can’t be flouncing about in cardigans and terrycloth (a bit heavy) all the time!  Sometimes I think it’s good to be practical even if it’s not the most styled look you’ve ever worn!

Casual Blues

Denim?  Neverrrrrrr!  Okay, well I do sometimes wear denim, though by now you probably know I don’t have a particular fondness for pants.  They’re just not terribly flattering on me :P  

This is my attempt at boyfriend, except these are slouchy skinny jeans.  I think they’re supposed to look like this on regular-sized people but I’m a petite so they look more like boyfriend.  So imagine what boyfriend jeans look like on me — not too good.  I can’t wear boyfriend shorts either.  I love them… on other people!  I don’t always always follow style rules though!  I just bought that pink Aidan Mattox floor length gown, a length that is generally the cardinal sin of petite dressing.  I’m wearing it to a black tie optional gala at which all the men wear tuxedos anyway (I saw last year’s photos), and an outdoor wedding later in June so I feel like it was a good choice!

Yes… They are Jeggings

Debut of the jeggings.  I’ve had these for a while but just never got any photos of them.  I wore this to a casual lunch with one of my friends… and proceeded to stuff myself with a plate of pasta.  And a whole bunch of bread.  I guess it’s lucky that these jeggings are a bit too big for me, then.  I definitely couldn’t have gotten into the next size down though.  Maybe these are a little too long on me or something?  I can’t help but think jeggings should fit closer to the leg.  These are more like straight leg/skinny jeans on me. 

I’m trying out a different way of letting you know what I’m wearing… it’s the way you’re supposed to describe things on Mode Republic.  So really I’m just being lazy :)

Green shirt (Old Navy), grey and white striped cardigan (Ann Taylor Loft), brown leather belt (Target), green and white scarf (Intermix), light blue jeggings (J Brand), nude pumps (Sofft).
