Outfit: Elephant Graphic Tank Top, Dotted Denim Skirt, Silver Sandals, & Red Sunglasses

I'm just now getting to pictures from Fourth of July weekend but I'm really excited to share them! It's nice to have something different to show you. Matt and I took a short trip down to the very southernmost coast of Georgia to a town called St. Mary's and bopped around for about a day total. These photos were taken the first evening on the shore near its little downtown area. 

This is what I wore in the car for hours so it had to be a super comfy outfit but still cute enough to wear around all day. I went with my new elephant graphic tank top I got at the Mother Mother concert and a light denim polka dot skirt. I wore my trusty silver sandals the entire trip - even on Cumberland Island - and they may have gotten a little dirty and gross. I still need to deep clean them somehow but I think they've definitely seen better days and there's no turning back. That's disappointing because they're probably the most comfortable sandals I own! Do you ever wish you could go back in time and tell yourself those shoes are super comfortable and you should buy 3 backups? It can't be just me.

What do you wear when you're traveling? I used to throw on clothes that were practically pajamas when I was in the car a long time but now I gravitate toward super soft cotton dresses. (Actually, if I'm heading home from a destination sometimes I'll wear sweats because I'm sleeping most of the time anyway!)  Outfits like this one work for car rides under 6 hours but anything above that requires even comfier attire. Sitting in a car for hours is uncomfortable enough without adding belts around your waist or less-than-baby-soft materials!

Anyway, I hope you had a fantastic week and are looking forward to an even better weekend!

Outfit: Strapless Polka Dot Romper, White Sandals, Aviators, and a Summer Hat

Summer Outfit: Strapless Polka Dot Romper with a Peplum, White Sandals, Straw Hat, and Aviator Sunglasses

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty happy it's Friday. This is one of my weekend outfits from a couple weeks ago when Matt and I wandered around the Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival. There were tons of booths set up with original local art. We ate some spicy and delicious Indian food from a food truck and tried sweet corn ice cream (which was delightfully different). The festival was at Old Fourth Ward Park just a short walk from our apartment so it was definitely a nice location to take pictures. 

This polka dot romper was a purchase from Boohoo.com last year but it needed to be taken in a little so it was hardly worn. I've shown it on the blog before with a cardigan but now that it's fixed I can wear it on its own! (Fun fail fact: I got sunburned wearing this. Too much pasty skin showing and a couple missed spots with the sunscreen.) 

I may have over-accessorized this a bit but I liked it! The sunglasses are my only pair of aviators so I like to wear them once in a while to switch it up from my usual wayfarers. They were on clearance at Delia's years ago. The bracelet is a Great Grandma piece and the bag was an old old c/o from Pepa Loves. This hat is one of my favorites from H&M. Every time I take pictures in it I wonder why I so often forget to add hats to my ensembles!

So do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I don't but you never know what might pop up. I always look forward to sleeping in. Maybe I'll have time to catch up on some of your blogs and go grocery shopping. I'm clearly living the exciting life over here! 

Happy Friday!

Outfit: Pinstriped Bow Neck Blouse, Navy Button Down Skirt, and Red Sandals

White Pinstriped Bow Neck Blouse, Navy Blue A-line Button Down Skirt, and Red Sandals

Hey look! My hair is in a ponytail. I've never been a ponytail kind of girl but I must admit I've been enjoying switching it up. It's nice having the option of putting it up when my hair isn't looking in tip top shape between washes. I do miss having my short hair though! It pretty much always looked good and was super fast to blow dry. Someday it'll get the chop again!

Now on to the clothes! This isn't labeled as a work outfit since it looks much more like my usual style, but I did wear it to work. The skirt is probably a bit too short for work but oh well. Fun fact: I've had this button down skirt from Forever 21 since 2010 and it's still going strong. This striped button down shirt is almost as old. Sometimes you just find great things that last and last from Forever 21. It's kind of like a thrift store in a way. There's tons of crap but you might find a gem. Or you might find something slightly crappy that you're still convinced you need.

So how was your weekend? Mine was pretty laid back but nice. We spent all of Saturday bumming around the apartment and did a little shopping yesterday. I bought the second volume of the Rat Queens comic with a gift card so I'm looking forward to breaking that open. I just got into reading comics a year or two ago so if you have any suggestions throw them at me. The disappointing thing is the library hardly carries any new comics or non superhero ones, though I'm not against superhero comics! Spider-man is da bomb.

Anyway, I hope you're having a great start to your week! Happy Monday!

Work Outfit: Navy Sailor Pants, Red Short Sleeved Cardigan, Floral Print Top, and Tan Tassel Loafers

Work Outfit: Navy Skinny Trousers with Sailor Buttons, Short Sleeved Red Cardigan, and a Floral Print Blouse

Happy happy Friday to you!
Do you suffer from freezing office when it's burning hot outside too? Well, my current office isn't as cold as school was or my previous office was, but it can still be chilly. Wearing trousers keeps my legs protected from the air conditioning so I'm glad I have a few pairs of cute ones. These sailor pants are light enough to keep me from having heat stroke on my walk to work but keep me warm in the office. Win win!

For this work outfit I added a floral print top to my skinny sailor trousers and threw on a short sleeved cardigan for extra color. I finally put some of those back-of-the-ankle cushions on my little tan loafers to keep them from tearing up my ankles too, so here they are! I'm excited to wear them more often now.

I'm so happy it's the weekend. I'm looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow and not having any big plans. We'll see what happens though! What are you doing this weekend? Anything fun?
