|Striped skirt: made by me. Ruffled shell: The Loft. Cardi: Nordstrom Rack. Nude heels: Guess via Ross.|
I'm a sucker for awning stripes. Well, any stripes really. I think we all know this by now. If there's something I over-wear, it's stripes. Luckly, it is virtually impossible to wear too many stripes, so I'm good. Anyways, back to awning stripes. Who doesn't love a good striped awning? So classic and clean, it makes me thing of a happy little shop in the middle of a city, or a small town. A striped awning makes any building just a little more precious. See.
So I've been searching for months for a fabulous blue and white awning striped fabric, because I had the mental image of a skirt so perfect, it's almost unreal. And I wasn't going to give up until that skirt became a reality. I'm super determined like that. And guys. I found it. Yes I did. I lovely love this skirt so much I would sew myself another just because. These are the things I obsess over girls, dreamy stripes.
Now on to the shoes. Aren't these bananas? I have been searching for the perfect pair of nude pumps for probably a year. It's really hard to find something really specific in a size 5. Plus, I'm cheap. So a few weeks ago I dropped into Ross (I have been having an unusually high amount of success with that store lately) and I found these shoes. Size 5, nude, Guess brand, gorgeous heaven in a pump. I died right there in the shoe isle. I actually let out a little shout. Just kidding, I'm not that nerdy. So, imagine my dismay when, as I stood in line to purchase, the power went out and everyone had to leave the store without purchasing their goods. I almost laid down on the floor and screamed "NOOOOOOOOO," but I didn't want to embarrass my kids, cause heaven knows they have never done that to me.
Luckily, a nice employee took pity on me and put my goods on hold before shooing us out of the store.
And even though I didn't really have time the next day, because we were moving, and I needed to clean and pack and run a hold heap of errands, I drove my little self right over to Ross and bought my shoes.
Shoes before responsibility.
I've got my priorities straight.
Fabulous awning striped skirt coming soon to an etsy shop near you...
