Under the rainbow

We went to the pumpkin patch last weekend and spotted this huge rainbow arch out near the parking lot. So, of course, jumping pictures followed. Because who doesn’t want to jump under a giant rainbow?

 

Tie-dye striped tank top, Loft; braided waist Lauren Conrad shorts, Kohl’s; gold bejeweled sandals, Marshall’s; Betsey Johnson bow bag, old, Ross; heart sunglasses, old,Ross.

I’ve been shopping the end of season clearance sales, which is where I found my outfit. I had credits to spend at both Kohl’s and Loft. Both tank top and shorts were less than $10. In fact, I had to go hunt for another item at Loft because I couldn’t use up the credit on my tank top after they took the additional percentage off that the clearance items were. They wouldn’t let me use the credit unless I could spend the whole amount. I also had money to spend at Victoria’s Secret, but their stuff is so expensive I settled for just buying underwear. Ha.

One thing I liked about these shorts was the braided denim waistline. It’s like having a built in denim belt on your shorts. The front pockets are very 70’s style. The shirt has fun almost tie-dyed like stripes on it. If you want to catch the end of summer clearance sales, they are going fast, so you’ll have to get out there and grab them before they’re gone!

If you are able to get out to a pumpkin patch, do so while the warm weather holds. I’m sure it will be rainy and muddy by the end of the month – at least in Oregon.

As always, thank you for stopping by!

Two ways to style a striped tunic

With a couple of quick changes, this outfit can be dressed up or down. If you’re at work, or out and about on a weekend and need to switch to a more dressy look without stopping at home again –  here are a couple of things you can bring with you for a quick day to night change.

White House | Black Market striped tunic top, gifted to me; White stretchy pants, Kohl’s; White belt with double hearts, c/o Dresslily; Hot pink Kate Spade New York Sam handbag, c/o; Heart necklace, old; Heart sunglasses, Ross; Wedge sandals, Rue21; View of the Columbia River Gorge with Crown Point / Vista House, priceless.

 

I started out with no belt, a denim jacket and flat leopard print Sam Edelman sandals for a more casual day look.

I brought with me my cute little double heart belt from Dresslily, now sold out. (More heart belts here.)   And I brought a pair of wedge sandals. Then I ditched the jacket. That’s it. Super quick day to night change.

Then we tried to find a place with no people. Despite the threat of Covid19, that was actually pretty hard to do considering it was late morning by the time we set out on a nice cool summery weekend day. We ended up finding a place at the end of the Portland Women’s Forum with people further away, but a snake in the bushes. Oh my. Let’s see how fast I can walk in my wedge sandals on uneven ground to get away once I spotted a snake slithering into the bushes. I didn’t run, but got away pretty fast, I must say.

I hope you all are staying safe out there and avoiding crowds like the plague just as we are doing. We even decided as a family not to go out to Michigan for the interment of my moms ashes this week due to Covid. Too much of a risk and we already lost one family member this year. Here’s to being safe and keeping the other family members alive and kicking if at all possible!
