Petal Pusher

I’m doing a pretty good job of this colour thing! Though this dress was also available in black, I chose to buy it in pink. It was being worn to a communion with a luncheon afterward, so I decided that for daytime it should be something colourful, pretty and soft. I’m not usually a “dress” girl. I don’t find them creative enough. Once you’ve worn it that’s it. No other way to style it really. I do see their place in the world though. Sometimes you just need that look. The Rubik’s Cube bag is from this super fun store in Italy called Carpisa. I’ve had it forever but I still get so many compliments every time I use it. Cute right?

Show Me Your Baby Blues

My outfit was inspired by these amazing baby blue ankle boots I found at DSW. The colour screamed “boots you can wear in spring!” They’re Crown Vintage which is a brand exclusive to DSW, as far as I can tell, and I’ve found it to be both very comfortable and well made. The tank I got last year right before my surgery. I didn’t realize at the time that my post mastectomy self would not lend well to tank tops. I held it up next to my new boots and voila — a match made in heaven. The weather was incredibly blustery so layering was essential. Jean jackets seem to have made their way back into the fashion world as of late and this one is actually kind of special. It’s an old Levi’s jacket that was my brother’s in high school. I stole it and kept it. Sorry dude! There’s even a little “signature” rip by the cuff that always told us it was ours.

Plaid And A Pineapple

Plaid And A Pineapple

I think I was in a plaid mood when I went shopping. Maybe I’m channeling my quarter of Scottish heritage. I couldn’t resist this cute little top with the buttons down the back. Being that I’m still kind of in post mastectomy hiding this shirt had a lot of redeeming features. While it has some sheerness the body of the top is solid and has a pattern. Patterns are distracting. If you’re trying to cover something up, go with a pattern that will draw attention away from specifics and areas you aren’t particularly fond of. The top and jeans came from my Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale outing. I think I’m addicted to the Savvy Department! Oh, and these are my first pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes! Love them!

Not a Vampire

Not a Vampire

So I just realized that it’s OK to take pictures of your daytime outfits. I’m not sure why I always felt like only my work or nighttime outfits were “blog worthy”. Even us bloggers have casual days. We’re not an elite group of men and women who look fabulous 24/7, dressed to the nines with full makeup and jewellery. Casual, however, doesn’t mean sloppy. One should always look put together. Even if you leave your house in sweats (the horror) they should at least match and be free of rips! Look like you have self respect and people will respect you.

This was my shopping outfit for the day. It literally happens only twice a year, but it’s worth the wait! The Nordstrom Half Yearly sale. My sister-in-law and I got up early and found some great stuff! Although not from this trip, my top is from the Savvy Department. It’s so much fun. Trendy, well made clothes and nothing is too expensive!
