Blouse: thrifted
Jeans: J Crew
Sandals: Simply Vera (gift from my mom)
Earrings: Turkey

This outfit was going to be more interesting. It was going to involve a leopard print belt and some heels, but our brakes are shot and the car's in the shop and I have to walk to work, so the heels were a no go. And then I started fighting with the top slipping out of my waistband when I tucked it in and the jeans bunching when I belted them.

So I said, "Bump proportions. I'm just doing this." And I put on some sandals and left my shirt untucked. Untucked shirts and I aren't too well acquainted and I often feel like a different person when I do this.

I do love this top, though. It was $.40 at the thrift store last weekend (direct from their 2 for 1 floor - yes, they have an entire FLOOR dedicated to 2 for 1 deals) and I couldn't resist the pattern or the yellow. I've got big plans for this top, many of which involve pattern mixing, because doesn't this look ripe for the mixing?

I'm also welcoming any outfit suggestions you might have for this top.


  1. That top was a good find - I say wear it with a dress and tie it at the front !

  2. Yes! I love that idea. I might try it tomorrow, I love it so much!

  3. I like the shirt untucked with these pants! Sorry about the car trouble!

  4. I've been rocking untucked (and knotted) button downs all summer. I love it. Nice score for .40 cents!

  5. Thanks! I'm trying to get used to the silhouette, but I can see it working, especially knotted.

  6. I tell our students that the car is in love with the mechanic. It's a constant struggle. Hahaha

  7. .40 is such a steal! I could just see myself talking myself out of buying everything in front of me because where would I put it? I think that shirt was a good find. I would maybe try it with a high waisted skirt?
