AJ Wears :: Stars and Stripes

Look, I know it's August, but why reserve the patriotic duds for holidays only? I love these wedges but didn't grab them in time for the 4th, so I decided to debut them on my own time. They're still darling, even if there's no USA holiday to celebrate.

I mean, see? Adorable. Not wearable, by any means, but just precious. And my shoes have never been the most versatile things. And why not go all the way and pair them with stripes? Happy Monday. I'm ridiculous. Look, I wore blue eyeliner.

And for your Monday bonus photo, why is this tree in my photo?????

AJ Wears :: A dotted blazer

I LOVE DOTS U GUIZE. Seriously, it's been the year of dots (every year previously has been the year of stripes. This year is still the year of stripes too). I picked this blazer up the same time I got the vertical striped one at Gap, so 40% off clearance = cheap blazer. I thought it would be easier to style than it has been, though. I keep wanting to match things to the green cuffs because they're cute.

So if y'all have any styling suggestions for a chambray polka dot blazer, let me know! I'm open to all suggestions because I really want it to work. I love it. It's just adorable.

In other news, I kind of wish my bangs were grown out so I could wear my hair parted in the middle for a while. I know that once it gets cold, I'll be jonesing for some blunt bangs again but for now, I'm bored and would love something a little different. I've been faking it this week! Still waiting for my hair to get long enough to do loose curls. Might need a smaller curling iron. SO MANY ISSUES TODAY.

Wedges............I DUNNO THE 90S???? Look how short!

AJ Wears :: Seersucker shorts

If the weather is below 90 at all, I try to do something interesting with my outfit. Especially if I'm going from AC house to AC car to AC Target. 90+ and you'll find me in shorts and a tank or a sleeveless dress, so if I can make it interesting just a few days this summer, I'm going to.

Today's ensemble is simple enough - my most comfortable shorts (seriously, bordering on pajamas) with chambray (staple - duh) and a little color. I went and picked up some sandals I'd been keeping an eye on at Marshall's and got a sandwich from Walmart, which was ultimately disappointing. The sandwich, not the sandals. Those are awesome and going on my trip to Austin this weekend.
