Comfort Is The Name Of The Game

What do you wear when you just want to be comfortable?
No not pajama pants or yoga pants.
But, almost...
Have you tried the "soft pant" from Old Navy yet?
It's pretty much a pajama/yoga pant rolled into a pant that isn't tragic when worn out in public.
I paired these with a sequin t,
 but you could totally dress it up with the right top.
Replace the flat sandals with a heel and you have yourself
 a great date look.
Notice how I combined two completely
 different colors of blue with this look?
Because of the contrast between the two shades
 it works well together. 
 Don't be afraid to mix colors of the same family. 
 Just make sure you choose colors 
that have enough contrast between them,
 whether that be through shade, tint, tone, etc,
 so they’re not overwhelming. 

Do you like to mix the same color with different hues, shades, etc?
If so what is your favorite color to do this with?

Spring Casual

Hey Ya'll!
I was MIA last week because I had a fabulous week in Seattle.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw what a fun week I had.
Today I am pretty casual. 
 It starts out cool in the mornings 
and
warms up in the afternoons. 
 A good reason for layers.  
Layering a shirt over a t is a great way 
to be able to shed layers later in the day
 and still look put together.
This is a very simple look. 
 Yet, it still comes across as put together and stylish.

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Can you believe today is the last Friday of April?
Summer is almost here!
Awkward:
  • Ready to catch up on recorded shows, but due to storms they didn't record correctly.
  • Riding in the car with your dog and suddenly he rolls the window down and almost jumps out.
  • When the squirrels dig up your beautifully newly planted pots.
  • Mailing birthday gifts out a month late.
  • Suggesting a restaurant and everyone agrees, but when you get there everyone says they really don't like that kind of food.
Awesome:
  • A freshly groomed dog.
  • Long walks in the park with husband and the dog.
  • Finally pulling the sandals out.
  • New windshield wipers on your car.
  • Finding out that chocolate almond butter is a thing!
  • Heading to Seattle for a few days.
 
 This is actually a maxi dress. 
 I decided to wear a chambray shirt over top
 since it was cool outside.
I like how the chambray plays off of the yellow and green. 
  Simple and easy and oh so comfy!
The best kind of outfits.

Do you wear shirts or sweaters over dresses?

Fun and Flowy

Happy Hump Day Lovelies!
I hope your week is going well so far.
It seems like we have had nothing but rain for days around here.
I am ready for a little sunshine to show up today!
I have been loving these Old Navy Pixie pants. 
 They really are comfortable and so fun.
I usually pair them with red,
 but decided to try a little orange today. 
I think next time I wear them, I might try blue. 
 Don't forget to change up your outfit. 
 Remember to always try something a little different
 when you pull out a favorite clothing item. 
 You might just surprise yourself with what you can come up with.

Do you always wear the same "outfit"?
Or do you always try and change it up?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Hi Everyone!
I hope you have a beautiful Friday and an even better weekend.
Awkward:
  • When you are 3/4 of the way through a kind of confusing book when you realize you are in book 4 of a 5 book series.
  • Splinters in your palm.
  • Wake up, shake your head and realize you just had a dream about Elvis.
  • Getting caught in a downpour in your new pony hair flats: the decision is...run into the grocery store to get the one item you need for dinner barefoot or go home and change shoes?  Yep, I ran into grocery store barefoot.
  • When your party is the very last one in the restaurant at closing.
 Awesome:
  • Finding a favorite lipstick under the car seat that you had thought was lost forever.
  • Planting all my pots on my back deck with beautiful spring flowers.
  • Helping a friend "closet" shop!
  • The best store corn tortillas ever.  Found them at Trader Joe's. They are TJ brand, look on back of package and see that they are only made of corn, lime and water.
  • I misplaced my fitbit a while ago.  I had an old one I was using, but the battery wasn't staying charged.  On a mission to find the other one.  Went through every pocket in my closet...found a lip gloss, Christmas tree light bulbs, 67 cents, cough drops and my FITBIT!!!!!
 
A little denim on denim.
  I love the crisp feel of the white blazer
 and chucks with the denim. 
Great look that I always forget about wearing.

Would love to hear about any awkward or awesome moments you had this week.
