A few of my favorite things

This outfit combined several of them. I love this stripey shirt, I love my new denim blazer, I love bright tights, and I LOVE these boots! This is actually the 8th outfit I've made with my 30, but I decided to post it today because I want to be part of the Breton Stripe thing happening over on EveryBody EveryWhere.

So all day, I kept catching glances of my outfit and thought there was something not-quite-right about it - it just wasn't as gorgeous as it was in my head. But when I took my pictures, I decided it was just right, and I would like to thank my umbrella for this improvement. Apparently I should have been carrying it around with me all day.

For the first few pictures that I took, I was a bit too zoomed in, so please enjoy a few pictures of my midsection.

I think I magically knew my face wasn't making it in the frame.

Q: Why are you holding your umbrella way up there, like a weirdo?
A: I am a weirdo. Also, though this umbrella is the freaking cutest, and I got it on a very special trip to London and would never get rid of it, the little mechanism that holds it open doesn't actually work. Almost at all. So I had to hold it. Like a weirdo.

Can you see the rain? Here in Tennessee, it's called "snow".


  1. I agree that the umbrella is the cutest. I don't agree that something was off about this outfit. I want to go recreate this outfit myself. But, I don't have a snazzy blazer like that. I will though and then I will be back to steal this look. Only, can I use maroon tights? Cause that's all I've got ;)

  3. I love this and I have the exact same shirt.. I love the button detail on it. Cheers!~ Girls Day Out

  4. Adorable outfit--but I agree that the umbrella adds just that tiny bit of pizzaz!
