Closet Diary 5.16.13

This last week has just been a neutrals sort of week. The weather has been gray and rainy so putting on a bright spring outfit just hasn’t felt right. Even though I’m normally drawn towards colorful floral prints, I really like this neutral outfit. Gray has always been my favorite neutral and it looks so soft and pretty mixed with cream. I also love the stripes, ruffles, and lace all together.

Closet Diary 5.15.13

I’m pretty sure this outfit is a bad luck charm. I originally wore it last Friday because I was heading home for Mother’s Day weekend and, in order to pack light, I layered on a bunch of things that I knew would remix well with pieces from both my closet and my mom’s closet at home. At first, I wasn’t too sure about this all white look, but it definitely grew on me. That is, until my bus crashed on the interstate just as we were coming in to Portland. Our Amtrak bus caused a five car accident that blocked all northbound lanes for over an hour. Although two people were taken to the hospital, no one was seriously injured. However, I can tell you that this outfit was not made for crawling out of bus windows, walking up freeway ramps, or climbing over walls!

Shoe Love

Holy cow, I have a serious crush on these shoes from the new Sam & Libby line at Target. I can’t remember ever being this excited about shoes, but these babies are perfection! There’s just something about the mixed neutrals, patterns, and textures. I just can’t get over how glam these shoes are for their price tag. Can someone please just buy me any (or all) of these? Pretty please?

I might have to add one of these to my summer rotation. Which one is your favorite?
