Happy Monday! What a busy weekend and I must say, although my week was a pretty tough one, it sure has gotten better over the weekend! A little family time always seems to make things better. Plus, I started on some spring cleaning; out with the old and in with the new – that always makes me feel accomplished. Too bad it was only the garage, but woohoo- that baby is complete. Now…the rest of the house awaits…LOL!!
As I have tried to stay off of social media this past week and focus on family and this house, I still noticed the top outfit on Instagram. I loved this little outfit and enjoyed wearing it so much, I thought I would share it with your girls. It screams Summer/Spring with all the cute bright summers and the espadrilles is like the cherry on top!! What are your thoughts ladies?
This top is from Old Navy but was purchased last Summer, I found some that were close to it or some that would look super cute with the coral shorts below. The shorts are more of a soft coral or terracotta, that are not real bold – just a cute color for summer. These came from Old Navy when I had the Spring Try On Haul a few weeks ago. See that post HERE.
These shorts are high waisted and button up, they have stretch in them and the more you wear them the looser they get. When I first tried them on they fit a little snug, after I wore them for about 30 minutes they fit perfect. I like my clothes to fit or loose – not tight at all. These have a 4-inch inseam (probably looks shorter on me since I’m 5’7″), they are twill with the comfortable stretch. They do not have pockets in the front, but they do have pockets in the back. See the short HERE.
I chose a black floral top that can be work in a square neck or off the shoulder look. See alternative ideas below.
I decided to really stack some bracelets with this outfit – I haven’t done it in a while and felt like throwing it on! This is all JBloom Designs, see all jewelry HERE. // Hazel Green Marble Stretch Bracelet // Gold & Rose Gold Bangles // Blessed Cuff Bracelet // Green Over The Moon Bracelet // Heart Necklace
The espadrilles I am wearing are from Sole Society, called the Kathalia and they are some of my favorite shoes. I like these because they wear really good, the color goes with everything (Dusty Mink) and they are only 1-inch espadrilles. I get the look of the espadrille without having a high heel. Which makes this a perfect sandal for me to run errands in or go out to eat or shop. Plus, if you are taller – wearing a higher heel with shorts is not comfortable for errands. Get the sandal HERE – Sole Society does offer AfterPay where the payments are split up over time, and you get 15% off your order if you sign up for the Newsletter. The nail polish is by Essie called Wicked, get the polish HERE.
What are your thoughts on this outfit ladies? For me, it was a great casual outfit that I wore from the morning running errands to going out to eat that night – I loved it! I know some of you do not like the off the shoulder look, so I also took a picture with the racerback bralette underneath to show you that look.
Ok girls, I am off to the gym this morning, I have lost 14 lbs since I started FWTFL. To learn more about the FASTer Way To Weight Loss click HERE. My kids don’t really notice the difference, but Barry says he can tell when he hugs me lol. That’s another problem with being tall – you can hide the weight well, but no one noticed that much when you lose. I can tell in my clothes and that’s just fine with me…LOL!!! Have a great Monday ladies!! See you tomorrow on the blog and thanks for stopping by!!
