Floral and stripes forever, my dears. I realized when I was putting together my many days, many ways post this month that I haven’t actually worn this top much on the blog, even though it’s easily one of my most worn items in life. When I don’t know what to wear, I throw it on with my boyfriend jeans and nude flats and run out the door. I’ve actually been looking for a replacement, just in case, but I’ve never found one that fits me as well as this one. And it’s from friggen Zumiez! I know, weird.
I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I came up with all of the outfits for my 30×30 ahead of time. Every week when I go to shoot my outfits with Briley, I do a little editing to my “equations” to see if there’s something better that I missed in my initial pairings. This is one of the outfits I almost missed, and I’m so glad I didn’t! I was running late (seriously, when am I not?) the other day, and, as I’ve mentioned, I’m only wearing items from my 30 picks til the challenge is done. I grabbed both of these pieces and put them together and was thrilled with the outfit. I got to work and pulled up my spreadsheet and realized that I hadn’t even included it as an official outfit, so I erased something boring and replaced it with this.
I’ve already worn this outfit twice, once to work and once on the weekend, and gotten lots of compliments both times. Is it just me, or is that so validating? I think it’s probably what caused me to start blogging in the first place, like many of us, because I had so many people asking me where things were from and I was always excited to tell them.
What have you worn recently that you got a lot of compliments on? Are you like me and always have to tell people where you bought things (and how much you saved when you bought it)?
