dress: White Stag. shoes: Teva Makena. necklace: Charming Charlie.
My mom gave me this dress while we were in North Carolina, so I wore it out shopping one day. Normally I would have worn a different shoe, but this is what I had with me, so oh well.
This is an example of a tunic I can do: it has slits on the side to accommodate larger hips and it a little loose. At first I didn’t like this shirt at all when I got it, but for some reason with a black camisole instead of white I feel like it works. It’s nice and light for summer and works with a slim cut jean like this.
shirt: New Directions Woman. pants: INC via Ross. shoes: Mossimo Odell in black.
OK, I think I am going to auction this shirt to the highest bidder. I tried it again. (See Try 1.) I just don’t feel like it’s the most flattering this on me and emphasizes how big my nursing chest is, which makes me uncomfortable. I like the polka dots and feminine details, but that doesn’t make it work for my body.
On a good note, these pants fit a lot better than they did 2 months ago! I am officially down a pants size and very happy about it!
I can’t believe I haven’t shown you this cardigan yet because I wear it ALL THE TIME. Whoever created waterfall cardigans is my favorite. The details on this one are so fun; my husband doesn’t get the lace with t-shirt material but I think that’s what makes it a great top.
I got a bunch of new camisoles at Avenue last week because mine were old as dirt. It’s so nice to wear one that’s not stained and shrunken beyond belief. I don’t think we have an Avenue store here, and I may have gone a little shop-happy: I got jeans, black pants, two pairs of earrings, three undies, five camisoles, and a sparkly shirt – all for about $110. Woohoo! They are having MAD SALES at their site right now, but it’s work to find items in your size. If you can, though, I think everything is under $7.
So here’s your question of the week: Do you have staples in your wardrobe that desperately need replaced?
On a sidenote, in NC I also discovered Naartjie Kids. And I am obsessed. I want to buy everything they have for Libbie and throw away most of her other clothes. Of course, that’s not going to happen. But seriously, their stuff is so cute, soft, and unique. I love it.
