July 25 – All about those comfy pants…

I don’t know if I mentioned it, but after I got back from Disney two weeks ago, I headed back down 95 to Maryland for the week (last week).  I was down there for a company retreat that was pretty epic and honestly, outrageous! It was a time for us, as a company, to get to know each other, learn some things and most importantly, have fun!  about 90% of work was suspended for the week which was amazing; however, it meant the following weeks (this week and on) would be torture. =0(

So, this week, I’ve been all about the comfy pants.  These were the first of its kind that I purchased and I love them.  I just love a pant that I can throw on with a simple tee and flats/sandals and call it a day.  I decided to take a break from a few things this week to help with catching up and being comfortable is important.  I don’t like a lot of fuss when it come to my style and the outfits that I put together and I think this outfit is the epitome of a no-fuss type of attitude =0)

July 24 – Palazzo Pants and Fall Colors

I feel really short in this picture =0P

I’ve had these pants for several years now and have only worn them a handful of times.  They’re quite bold (in my opinion), so it’s a bit harder to wear them compared to an everyday jean or khaki.  Even though we are still in the heart of summer, I think this outfit would transition nicely to fall.  Plus, the colors are more fall-like than summer. I don’t care though – wear what makes you happy and comfortable =0)

July 23 – What type of pants are these??

I purchased these pants years ago from Forever21 and like most cheap retailers, their clothes tend to shrink a bit.  When I first tried them on, they were a bit baggier than pictured here (kind of like a harem pant).  However, now? They fit like a legging with a drop crotch..ughh…

I love the pattern (my obsession with Aztec prints), so the drop-crotch is bearable =0).  So what do I call them? Leggings with a drop crotch? Alright, I’m going to go with that one =0)

July 21 – The first pair…

This pair of pants was the first that I made using a pattern.  I saw the fabric in the fabric store and knew I needed it, not knowing what I was going to do with it.  I had already bought the pattern months before and figured I’d eventually find the right fabric and print to get started.  They are soooo comfortable (I made them a size bigger) and I love the fact that I can wear them above or below the ankle (thank God for elastic =0P ).

July 17 – Stripes, Khaki, Camo

This is one of those random outfits that I put together and thought, “Hmm…that’s kinda cute…Lemme photograph it.”

I do like the mix of prints and muted colors going on, but looooove the fact that that combo doesn’t seem boring.  It’s a simple outfit that I would wear to do just about anything and everything.  I love these plimsolls because they’re just so darn comfortable – thought they were the perfect shoe for this everyday-casual look. =0)

July 16 – American Flag muscle tee

I first wore this tee last year for 4th of July.  I completely forgot about it until I was rummaging my wardrobe for something to go with these jeans.  I just purchased them a few weeks ago and wanted something different to put on up top.  I love a muscle tee during the summer because well…sun’s out guns out! =0)

Anywho, I like the fact that it’s black and grey instead of the standard red, white and blue.  I think it makes it look a bit edgier and cool…yes? no? Ok I’m done =0)

July 15 – A bit of that 70’s vibe

I was channeling the 70s a bit in this outfit especially with these 5.5 inch wedge sandals! Ah! Help me! =0)

I am in love with this color combo and think it’s perfect for the current trend of the 70s this season.  I’m not really into trends because I like what I like, when I want to like it – regardless of the times.  I love the way this outfit feels and look and would totally wear it to work or church.

But girlllll…let’s talk about these shoes…

A few months back, I was scouring the JustFab site for some shoes for the spring/summer.  One pair I kept, the cognac colored nude sandals that I wear with every outfit =0). The other pair was similar, but the back was different and couldn’t hold my foot in…so they had to go back.  I exchanged them for these wedges because I figured I’d be able to wear them and get more use out of them.

I knew the shoes were high because I looked at the heel height before selecting the shoe.  However, I didn’t realize just how high they would feel when I put them on.  They are quite high and surprisingly easy to walk in.  Mind you, I’m barefoot or in slippers all day, so anything above an inch requires a bit of practice =0)

They’re not going to be a go-to heel like the cognac colored ones, but they can be worn with just about anything, so I’m glad they’re in my arsenal =0)

July 14 – Brought a little bit of Disney back with me…

As some of you may know, I recently came back from a little family vacation to Disney World.  It was actually loaddddsss of fun (much better than my first experience).  The girls (my nieces) were completely surprised and their reactions (video coming soon) was totally worth the secrecy!!  Of course, it’s a standard rule to stop by the souvenir shop, so that’s exactly what I did.  I bought a ton of stuff for my friends that they absolutely don’t need, but I just had to get them something! =0)

One of the things that I bought for myself (other than food haha) was this tank.  I wanted something simple that I could wear out and about and also while doing yoga or riding my bike.  It’s really comfy and I love the graphic on it, of course…duh!

That place really is magical =0)

July 10 – Chambray and White

I seem to be reaching for my white jeans a lot lately…I just can’t seem to wear them enough!

I’ve already stressed how much I love my chambray shirts (clearly, as I am the proud owner of about 5 or 6 of them).  Paired with the crisp, bright white jeans and you’ve got yourself quite the combo!

If I could wear this everyday, I probably would.  I am in absolute LOVE with this outfit!07102015

July 8 – Floral denim and a Disney Trip

When this post goes up, I will be en route to a surprise Disney trip for my nieces.  One of them has a birthday this week and my dad thought it would be a great idea for us to take them to Disney.  I’m actually quite excited myself as I really didn’t enjoy Disney when I was a kid.  Since we’re going to be in hot-as-Hades Florida, I figured I’d put up a post with shorts and feature this cute top I just bought at the thrift store! =0)

The kicker here is that I think this outfit cost just under $20-22!
