What I'm Wearing: Watercolor

Hello gorgeous people! How's your week been going? Mine has been really great. One of my favorite things about working retail is getting first chance at marked down merchandise. I had been eyeballing this pretty skirt for sometime but never did get it. It went on clearance for 50% off and then my employee discount on top of that made it such a great deal. You know I love me a bargain, so naturally I was thrilled.

I paired it with a coral tube top, a blue statement necklace and a fun bracelet, while keeping the shoes very neutral. It has been so hot here lately, so wearing much more clothing than this causes me to be uncomfortably hot? What do you think of this ensemble?

Have a great day!

What I'm Wearing: Floral Fever

Hello ladies and gentleman! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend so far. I know I am. After work today, I had dinner by the water with my family and then took the boat out around the lake. It was a beautiful day.

This is the outfit I wore to work for the day. I got these floral printed shorts from the Goodwill on my last treasure hunt there. They are straight up granny-style elastic waist, but I love them all the same. These are most likely a pair of shorts that have been shunned since the 80s. It's funny how style comes full circle. I paired them with a simple white tank, a teal waterfall blazer, pink belt, heart necklace and navy shoes. What do you think?

What I'm Wearing: Wu (minus the Tang) Clan

Hello Everyone! How was your weekend? I had a very busy, but lovely weekend that started with dinner with my family on Friday  and ended with laying by the pool and eating delicious Mexican food. The most important event of the weekend, however, was my wonderful cousin Lisa's Bridal shower. It was a perfect day to hold a shower outside on a shaded deck surrounded by family, great food and lots of laughter. Don't you just love days like that?

Anyhow, not quite as exciting, but still pretty exciting I found this Jason Wu for Target (with the tags on it) for $4 at the Goodwill. It's so darling, isn't it?  Polka dots and a bow? Sign me up. This was one of those thrifting trips that amounted to a whole lot of success. I also got a Jason Wu for target black pleated skirt, the shorts I am wearing above (both brand new with tags on it), floral shorts, a strapless coral top and a printed tank all for $14. Gotta love it!

What I'm Wearing: Tree Hugger

I may have went a little floral crazy here, but I still kind of enjoy it. Channeling my inner-flower child always makes me a little bit happy, even makes me frolic about (as seen above). The weather has been gorgeous which leaves me with no excuse for why I am so pale.

A coworker of mine dressed a mannequin at work with these two floral prints mixed and I knew I had to have it. Most of the population is still way too gun-shy about mixing prints, but I get a kick out of doing it. It feels so fresh to me not to have to match. What do you think of my floral printed chambray top mixed with the floral skirt?

Have a lovely weekend, everyone! Stop and smell the roses!

What I'm Wearing: Astro Pop

Hello all! The more I look at this outfit, the more I feel like I look like an Astro Pop or like I am trying really hard to be patriotic. I got complimented on it though, so it must not have weirded the masses out. I bought this skirt for $1.20! How could I possibly say no to that? That vibrant blue AND accordian pleats? Shut the front door.

The choice of the red top was just kind of happenstance. I happened to see it at the top of my dresser and decided to roll with it. Do you think it's too much?

What I'm Wearing: Greener Pastures

Hola, mis amigos! I hope you're all having a great day and will have a great weekend as well! Any fun plans? I have work, a cookout, a graduation open house and a Game of Thrones season finale party. Is anyone else as obsessed with that show (and/or the books) as I am? It's so fabulous.

Anyhow this is a look I wore out the other day. Fairly simple,  but if you throw a bow into the mix, I am always a happy camper. I just paired a micro-polka dot top with a green skirt, my go-to wedges, a  monogram necklace and a thick nude belt with a bow. I am not usually good at simple, but I think this is a win.
