Friday Favorites Remix :: That peplum, Again

When I picked what piece from last week to remix, I had totally forgotten that I'd already remixed this piece on a Friday once before! It's going to be a great piece to transition into fall though, so I figured, remix away! Plus...I was already dressed.

So just for fun, I'm showing off not only how I wore this piece last week, but the other two times before that. Clearly, it's a favorite.

PS - In case you're interested, this is how I wore these leggings (as pants) the last time. No shame. No apologies.

Time to link up! How did YOU re-wear this week??

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 ruffled dress

Ugh. Is there anything more frustrating as a blogger who relies on photos to tell a story than totally messing up the photos? I thought we had that "perfect golden light" this evening (I mean, come on, it was like 8pm). I knew the parking lot wasn't the best backdrop, but it was less awkward than trying to take pics while people waiting for a table at Mellow Mushroom looked on. What I ended up with, however, is less than ideal.

Still, the pictures tell a story, so I can hardly complain. I had a fantastic dinner with friends, joined the Mellow Mushroom Beer Club (I even got a card! Hurrah!), and enjoyed a new restaurant in Little Rock. The weather was divine for a June evening and I finally got to blog these adorable wedges. So even though the pictures might be far from my ideal, the evening was not. I love summer nights.
