My Attempt at Fashion: Pixelated Prints + Neon + Good Friends

May 8, 2012

{I’m linking this puppy up with Laura over at A Little Bit of Lacquer for Work-It-Wednesday! She’s pretty awesome. You should check her out, yo.}

You guys, remember when I made those sweet DIY neon-toed shoes? Oh, and previewed a little outfit. Well, the real-life application is HERE.

I really wanted to wear this shirt I got from Kohl’s in the clearance section ($8, woop! woop!), but also wanted to be able to make it look casual and dressy in the same day.

I wasn’t sure about the shirt at first – I knew I LOVED the colors, but I wasn’t sold on the style. I am always worried that I can’t pull off the flowy, baggy shirt – that it makes me look unshapely. Or something.

But honestly, in the end, I think it worked pretty well. 馃檪 What do you think? Do you love the flowy, baggy, loose shirts? Do they fit well on you or do you have trouble styling them right?

Plus, I loved pairing the casual outfit with shorts and my DIY neon-toed shoes and the night outfit with heels and my favorite jeans.

Leave a comment with what you think!

[the outfit: shirt: Kohl’s ($8 on clearance at my Kohl’s) | tanks: express (old) | Shorts: jcrew 5″ chino |聽 shoes: wal-mart / diy | necklace: Kazuri (Kenya)]

[pointing out the shoes. i’m a goof, what can i say?]

[i was SO excited cause one of my best friends in the whole world, my little sister from my sorority came through town with her fiance and his two beautiful kiddos and we had lunch. i love my little more than words can say. she was one of my bridesmaids and i just love her. whole lot. oh, and we ate at red robin, my other happy place.]

[derek’s adorbs kiddos. i love them.]

[then for nighttime, i switched out the shorts for my favorite old Seven for All Mankind Dojo jeans and nine west heels.]

[my dear, dear sweet friend colette was telling real-life stories for a comedy show at the theater where i used to perform, DSI Comedy Theater, that night. so i got to spend time with her and see her tell hilarious stories. it was AWESOME. the show was hilarious and colette did SUCH a good job!!]

I just love spending time with good friends and laughing till my stomach hurts. It’s so rejuvenating.

So, yeah. Tell me a story. About love. Life. Friends. Fashion. Whatnot. Anything. What’s making you happy right now? What challenges are you trying to face? I dunno, I’m feeling inspired.
