Coral pleats and crop tops

Crushing on pleated skirts and lacy puff sleeve crop tops this week. How fun! Both items were found at Ross, so you know they were a good price, too. Plus a bonus peek at how to style a silk scarf.

Polka dot ruched lace top, Ross; coral pleated skirt, Ross; pink scarf, old; colorful handbag, given to me, old; white flats, Ross.

This outfit is so much fun. The colors are bright and cheery despite the fact that we are now heading into our gloomiest time of the year. Bright colors are my jam! It also has a bit of a romantic feel with the long pleated skirt and lacy puff sleeve top.

I started out wearing the scarf around my shoulders, tied at the waist. There was still a bit of a chill in the air. Then I tied it around my waist. At some point I tried tying it around my bun, however, it is so long, that didn’t work as well as it would have with a shorter scarf. Eventually I decided to wear it like a normal scarf.

What are your favorite ways to wear a silk scarf?

Nautical blue and white striped skater dress

I found some fun stuff on sale at H & M just over a week ago. I tried on a whole bunch of stuff and managed to leave with just two items. The summer sales are going strong right now, peeps. Sales and good deals are my jam, in case you haven’t figured that out yet.

This cute blue and white striped skater dress was one thing I decided to keep. It was only $3 people! Can you believe it??? I tried on a couple more skater dresses, but they were all really thin, threatening to be see through, so this one was the keeper.

A romper that was really cute once I got it on went to the side because it was so hard to put on. Then there was this super cute leopard print pleated tank top that was so fun and swingy I kept it even though it was only half off. Which was still less than $10, because this is H & M were talking about. They are all about affordable clothes in the first place, sale or no sale. More on the top next post. This dress and the fun top were the only things I kept from my try on session there. I could’ve taken photos of the rest of the stuff while there, but I didn’t so you’ll just have to know I kept the best stuff.

This fun leaf necklace was from Village Merchants, a fun consignment shop in Portland that my niece wanted to go to while they were passing through last weekend. I found more stuff there, too. But, I’ll fill you in on all that another time as well. I’m sure the clothing and jewelry will show up on here sooner rather than later.

 

The scarf in my hair was also from Village Merchants. The earrings were given to me and went with the nautical vibe of this outfit.
