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!

How to style a basic tee two ways

This post is all about the basic tee and how to style one.

T-shirts are foundational pieces that can be worn alone or layered up for cooler weather. As we transition away from summer, it’s important to have different layers for different types of weather, even same day weather changes.

Look 1:

Navy tee, c/o Mott & Bow, here. Denim jacket, old; olive jeans, Kohl’s, old; Kate Spade New York handbag, gifted to me, old; feather earrings, Kohl’s; Suede sneakers, Ross, old.

A typical fall morning is cool, so you’re likely to be wearing pants or capris. A light jacket is a good idea most mornings. It’s also time to start pulling out your closed toe shoes like these blue suede sneakers.

As afternoon comes on, you may want to change things up for a cooler outfit. Ditch the jacket and closed toe shoes. Knot up the tee. Add a hat if it’s sunny.

Knotted tee, c/o Mott and Bow, here. Patterned jean shorts, Kohl’s; rose gold purse, Ross, old. White laser cute wedge sandals, Ross, last year; Wish you were here sunhat, Marshall’s, old.

Weather is a fickle thing in the fall time. And in Oregon, for that matter.

This tee was from Mott & Bow. It is really good quality soft, silky cotton for an affordable price. It’s so comfortable, I could sleep in it. (And have!)

Thank you to any and all who sent prayers our way for the fires in Oregon. I am happy to say we finally got rain, which helped clear all the smoke from the sky so we can breath non hazardous air again.
