AJ Wears :: Flowers and Stripes

Y'all, summer finally made it. I wasn't sure we'd be getting any scorchers but the temps have finally settled in at 98-101 (plus the aaaaahsome humidity) so my advice to everyone is :: wear as little as possible.

I settled on this breezy tank (surprise! there's a bow in the back!) and some fun shorts for today. This combination came about when I was trying on this top a few months ago - I was wearing these shorts and thought, "Actually, these kind of work together!" Y'all know I love some stripes and florals. It's like peanut butter and brown sugar. Wait, what? You don't make those kinds of sandwiches? WELL YOU SHOULD. Trust me. It's delicious.

Today's post comes with a second piece of advice. Never start buying nicer bags. It's like Pringles. Once you pop, you can't stop. This is the latest addition to my little collection - the cutest little camera bag you ever did see! I blame Gilt and my friend Amy for reminding me to go look at the sale on Gilt. The end of the story is, I love it and I don't care and I just cut my bag collection down to less than 20 so what's another little sister? Plus, look. Preeeeettttyyyyy.

AJ Wears :: A flowery skirt

I got this skirt at Target a while back, but for some reason I haven't made a blog wearing it yet. It's the skirt I'm most likely to grab when I'm about to go run some quick errands - and currently on clearance in stores if you're interested!

I need some short hair fixes for dirty days stat. Right now, my option is pretty much...hat. I attempted some complicated Pinterest updo that involved a lot of teasing and ended up looking like the Bride of Frankenstein, so that's not gonna work. I did manage to do my stand-by french braid around my head, though, so that might have to do.

Blazer, Forever 21.
Tee, Banana Republic.
Skirt, Target.
Bag, Coach.
Sandals, Nine West via Marshalls.

Linking up with Walking in Memphis in High Heels today! Floral power!

Take One, Day 10 :: A Spotty Skirt

I have to admit, I loved hearing what pieces you guys thought I should remix from yesterday's outfit. Maybe I should crowdsource my remix pieces for a week. That could actually get a little interesting, because y'all could pick the most impossible part of my outfit to remix, just to see if I could. Anyway, I decided on the skirt because it's actually a really fun little piece that I've found looks good with a lot, even if I don't wear it as often as I probably should.

 I always feel like a teacher when I wear a cardigan. They're not exactly edgy, but I've been wearing them since middle school. Maybe I'm an old lady at heart. Speaking of old lady things, it's been a little warmer this week so far, so I went sans "stockings" and let my legs hang out. Man, I am killing it with the writing today. So, so many uninteresting things to say. Happy Monday to you too.

Cardigan...I don't know. Probably Target or Old Navy or something.
Skirt, Vintage (and stolen from my sister)
Scarf, Forever 21.
Shoes....Payless, maybe?

Oh, so I guess this is another (boring) fun fact too! Everything in my outfit today I've had for a long time. Pulling deep from the reserves of AJ's closet for the remix, what up with that.
