Knotted Florals

26 Apr 2012 Permalink

I have yet to pick up (or diy!) a high/low skirt, but putting a small knot at the bottom of this floral one seemed to add a nice little something to this springy look.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!  I tending to some sick kids…but don’t feel too sorry for me.  Summer vacation is right around the corner!

Reason #30

I’ve never bought anything from J.Crew.  Not because their clothing isn’t cute or anything – it totally is…it’s because I can’t see myself spending $60 or more on a sweater (I’m way past that stage in my life…I like my paycheck, thank you, even if it’s only a teacher’s salary).

This sweater I’m wearing…J. Crew.  Featherweight cotton.  Neon Green.  Thrifted.

Floral Button Down

I was never really a fan of button down shirts…but then I got pregnant and the clothing options became limited.  Now a days they are a staple in my wardrobe.  Solid colors, stripes, polka dots…even ones, like this, covered in a floral print that looks like upholstery fabric.  I like ’em a smidge on the loose side and paired with a skinny pant…a perfect uniform for busy mamas!

70 degree temps in March aren’t the norm for us in the Chicago area, but seriously, who’s complaining!?  (btw…this tree doesn’t usually bloom until late April!)

I haven’t officially switched out my fall/winter wardrobe for the spring/summer one yet, but I do have a few dresses (like this one), that end up getting used year round.  Adding a button-down tied at the waist, and some sandals, makes it perfect for these gorgeous days!
