One thing that I don’t think I do enough around these parts is outfit posts. Would you agree? Would you like to see more?
A few weeks ago we had a nice cool spell, which actually made it feel like fall was on its way. And so I started ditching my skirts and dresses for jeans again. Of course then after that we sweltered in the heat for awhile, naturally. But even still, I’ve been finding myself wearing jeans a lot in these dwindling days of summer.
I paired my jeans with a blouse I’d never actually worn! You see, it’s part of a vintage set. I initially loved the idea of the separates as an outfit—but I didn’t count on the fact that the lacy blouse and tea-length skirt with scalloped hem would make me feel like a walking picnic table. Finally about a year after buying them, I realized the blouse was great… without the skirt.
I love how the armholes are trimmed with lace like the collar. I’m really not a big fan of lace, I admit, so this is one of the few lacy things in my wardrobe!
Pairing my plastic strawberries necklace, sleeveless blouse and polka dot clogs with jeans, I definitely feel this outfit keeps one foot firmly in summer, while the other is creeping into fall.
Now, where’s the picnic?!! Actually, as you read this I’m off galavanting in the north woods of Wisconsin, so I might even be enjoying a picnic right now. How about that!
