June 21, Sisters

I feel so blessed to have 2 amazing sisters. I honestly consider them to be my best friends! Unfortunately, they both live far away (in Kansas City) so I only get to see them about 4 or 5 times year. This week, my little sister is visiting to help celebrate my son’s graduation and my daughter’s 16th birthday, so I thought I’d post a sister’s photo.

My little sister is very stylish- she totally inspires me! She has a very classic, polished look- and isn’t afraid to spend a lot on clothes (unlike me- who is a cheapskate!)

Here she is wearing white on white- which can be hard to pull off, but she makes it work by choosing stylish white jeans with a frayed hem and a cute white cotton t-shirt with a ruffle detail on the sleeves. By tucking the shirt in and revealing the cute brown belt she breaks up the white and keeps her outfit from looking too plain. To add a little more interest & fun, she choose cute leopard slides and added some jewelry.

As for me, I’ve chosen my dark skinny jeans and paired them with a cute floral blouse. I NEVER wear floral, so this is a stretch for me, but I think it looks feminine and sweet. I’ve been looking for a floral top for a while, and found this cute one at Nordstrom Rack the other day, and I really like it!

To complete my outfit, I chose my block heel slides and added a couple of bracelets.

Happy Friday everyone!

May 29, Floral Blouse

Today I am wearing this cute printed floral blouse that I have paired with my white jeans in the past. Wanting something different, I first tried them with dark blue jeans, but then thought that since there is a tiny bit of black in the pattern, I’d try them with my black skinny jeans instead.

Comparing the two looks, I love the contrast between the dark jeans and the light blue blouse. I also think it looks better tucked in (you know I love my half tuck), and I think these pointy toed shoes are an improvement over the ballet flats. They dress the outfit up a bit, and add some style with the pointy toe. Plus, these are seriously comfortable shoes and I am going to be on my feet all day! 

Happy Hump Day!
