Hot Mess

Shirt: Forever 21 // Skirt: Vintage // Shoes: Lulu's // Bracelet: Forever 21

The other morning I woke up wanting to wear a monochromatic or tonal outfit, so I combed my closet looking for matching separates. Despite having quite a colorful collection of clothes, I came away with only two pairings -- one blue and one orange. I went with the blues but felt happy in the combination. I was not so happy when I reviewed these pictures. Between my unforgivably wrinkly skirt and dreadfully windblown hair, this is not my best work!

Some Like It Hot

Shirt: Old Navy // Skirt: Courtesy of ModCloth // Shoes: Lucky Brand, courtesy of Lucky Magazine // Belt: Vintage // Necklace: Courtesy of Accessorize

This appears to be a reasonable summer outfit, but it was far too steamy for sleeves today! While the breeze did provide some relief, it may be time to succumb to summer.

Team Player

Shirt: Target // Jeans: H&M // Shoes: Old Navy (get them here) // Necklaces: H&M and Forever 21

Between my casual striped tee and athletic-inspired wedges, I actually felt slightly sporty today. Well, as sporty as this girl gets anyway.

Color Block Party

Top: Old Navy // Pants: Courtesy of Gracie B. Boutique // Shoes: BDN via TJMaxx // Bracelet: Forever 21

This colorful combination was inspired by a couple of new additions to my closet. First up, these bold fuchsia skinnies from Gracie B. Boutique! I think it's safe to say they have taken the title of most comfortable pants in my closet. They feel like wearing leggings but look like proper pants. Secondly, these gorgeous sandals. It was love at first sight when I spotted them. Between the minimal silhouette, chunky '60s heel and color blocking, they combine several of my favorite shoe trends of the season.

Pinky Swear

Top: Rebecca Taylor, secondhand // Skirt: Courtesy of 81 Poppies // Shoes: Courtesy of B.A.I.T. Footwear // Necklace: Target

As I so often do, I indulged my girly side yesterday with plenty of pink, ruffles and lace.

Hey, Sailor!

Shirt: Old Navy // Pants: H&M // Shoes: Courtesy of B.A.I.T. Footwear // Necklace: jcpenney

With my sassy '80s side pony, coordinating shirt, shoes and lips, and not-so-subtle nautical motif (you can't even see my anchor earrings), I felt almost obnoxious in this outfit. But, hey, sometimes when the mood strikes, you gotta go with it, and this is exactly what I felt like wearing yesterday.

Snow White

Dress: Urban Outfitters (shop similar style) // Shoes: Courtesy of Blowfish // Belt: Thrifted // Headband: Target // Ring: Forever 21

I usually don't allow myself to purchase white clothing. Between my general clumsiness, inability to do laundry correctly and strong dislike of bleach, my whites inevitably end up with stains or dinginess. This pretty little dress, however, had too many of my favorite details to pass up: dainty lace, a high neckline, an open back. Plus, little white dresses always feel so fresh during the warmer months. I'll just have to enjoy it till I destroy it!

The winner of the Blowfish Shoes giveaway is AubreyLaine. Congrats! I will email you with details. Thanks to all who entered!

Adventures in Style

I'm so excited to be part of Modcloth's latest stylebook -- a super cute round-up of bloggers from across the country in their favorite hometown locales! Be sure to check it out. I didn't make much of a hullaballoo about it at the time, but I figured this was the perfect opportunity to share with you all that I moved to Kansas City awhile back. I'm technically a Missouri resident now, but I'll always be a Kansas girl at heart, so I didn't feel the need to alter my blog's name.
