Nothing New – Day 9

NothingNew-9

Wearing: Calypso St. Barth shirt (thrifted) / Lucky Brand jeans / Simple sneakers

Not feeling very perky today, but tried to pull myself together for this post. I guess this is the very thing about picking outfits from day-to-day — it varies greatly and for me, depends on my mood. Jackson and I went for a long walk at lunch in the sunny, but quite breezy weather today. In general that was good, but he was the only one who got to take a nap afterward.

You might notice in the description that my shirt is thrifted. We have a truly wonderful store in Boulder called Common Threads (there’s one in Denver too), where I love to go. Sometimes I find a few things and other times not, but the designer labels read like a Fashion Week runway schedule (Prada, Chloe, Stella, Isabelle, Tory, etc.) I was so close to getting a BCBG dress last time, but it was not quite right, even though it was only $18. Love that!

Does anyone else like to go thrifting?

Nothing New – Day 8

Wearing: Target shirred tank / Nordstrom floral midi skirt / Slip-On (top photo) Me Too by Adam Tucker / Espadrilles (bottom photo) Franco Sarto / Loft bracelet / Stella & Dot necklace / World Market earrings / Pour La Victoire convertible clutch.

Looking forward to today and lunch with a dear friend. We’ll take some time to enjoy the sun and flowers on Pearl St. Mall and do some window shopping. Who can resist lingering outside when the weather is hitting 80 degrees today?! I chose this flower print midi-skirt in honor of Earth Day and am doing an airy slip-on for daytime. I’d switch up the shoes for a date night to the high-heel espadrilles, which just make me feel like it’s summer already.

Hope you have a good one!

Playing catch up with my Nothing New project. Here are my outfits from the past few days. We had a long weekend off from school and that always means busy, busy, busy. We also went to my sister’s house this weekend for a family get-together with was really wonderful. We sat around for hours enjoying the weather, talking and eating good food.

Hope you’ve had a good weekend too and are settling into your week. The weather is getting nicer and nicer! So ready for that.

Nothing New – Day 4

I don’t know, what do you think of this cowgirl-meets-Asian-watercolor print? I completely forgot to accessorize in my haste to take pictures, but I’m a chronic under-accessorizer anyway. Does anyone else have this problem?

Because it’s Friday, I’m going to throw a 5 Random Things into today’s post as well.

  1. I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this concept. Tween bras that aren’t sexy, push-up or sparkly. And the creator is 18 years old. Bravo!!!
  2. My favorite is the infinity scarf with the secret pocket. Check out 7 Ways To Wear Your Valuables While Traveling.
  3. We all run into ruts when it comes to creativity. Here are 10 Ways to Boost Creativity by Doing Less
  4. The best website for fashion & beauty I’ve come across lately is Rank & Style. YOU. MUST. GO. SEE. IT. It has reviews and Top 10 lists for everything.
  5. Lindsey over at Thrift and Shout puts together amazing outfits that can cost as little as $17. She always looks cool and proves that you don’t need to spend a lot of cash to have style.

Have a great one!

Nothing New – Day 3

NothingNew-3a NothingNew-3b

This is one of those outfits that I’m really comfortable in. The jacket has seen more airports than any other item of clothing I have. It’s my go-to travel layer because it elevates my casual pieces, keeps me warm and looks neat and tidy even after a long day. I’m also a huge fan of cross-body bags because I like to have both hands free when I’m running around. The adjustable straps clip-off on this one and becomes a clutch. Brilliant! It also travels with me often. I love pieces that do double-duty.

Wearing: Trina Turk military jacket / Anthropologie Sandstone top / Levi’s Curve ID jeans / Aquatalia by Marvin K ankle boots / Stella & Dot necklace / World Market earrings / Halogen crossbody bag (on sale, more colors)

Enjoy the day!
