I may have started my 3-day weekend a wee bit early and neglected to post these photos last week. But there were dinners to enjoy, wine to be had and sun to {finally} enjoy. You understand, right? Good I knew we were friends for a reason.

Can we talk about these shoes for a min {it's my blog of course we can}. Basically I'm having trouble not wearing them. If I didn't have a track record of destroying shoes this wouldn't be a problem. But I do have said problem which doesn't really bode well for that fact that I need to wear these beauties for a wedding in August. Do you think the bride will notice if they're scuffed?

For the record I googled "sayings about orange" before typing this post. Let me just go ahead and save you 5 seconds and tell you not to waste your time. There are no good sayings about orange. In fact, I don't even really care for orange but somehow I have a closet full of it {right Suze?}. I may even discriminate against orange M&Ms.

After all that pattern mixing yesterday I thought I'd wear something simple. Nothing like a little wide leg pant and loose top to help you fit right back into the 9-5 masses. Although I couldn't resist a little gold shine. What can I say, a girl hasto stand out a little, right?

Here's the thing about pattern mixing - sometimes it's genius, other times it looks like you got dressed in the dark. While my brain might not have been fully functioning, I can guarantee that all the lights were on when I got ready. In fact, I was kinda loving this outfit! But then the day wore on and I started doubting my pattern mixing skills {the odd looks from strangers didn't help either}. But hey at least I'm back with an outfit, right? I would say blame the wedding festivities for my lack of blog motivation but how can you hate on a bride this adorable {answer: you can't!}?

Pardon the Interruption

D&T 4

Long time no blog {my apologies}. But no worries I checked my blogger handbook and 5 day absence is okay when one has a guest post. And guess what I do!
Today I’m over on Linley’s blog.

Check it out!

It's Still Raining

It's still raining here {I won't even get into the still-well-below-normal-chilly-temps} but no worries I found this little covered spot in the park. I thought I had lucked out without a soul in sight, but turns out I interrupted some lady's morning coffee with my photo shoot. Actually, once I setup my tripod and started fumbling with my camera she opted to leave. Guess whatever I was doing wasn't as fun as getting rained on during your morning stroll around the park. To each his own.

I had been eying this skirt for a while but paying full price at JCrew is something I try to avoid limit. When I saw it was sold out online while still listed at full price, I lost all hope. But it seems the ladies of Cincinnati didn't particularly care for this skirt {not sure if it was the tweed or the copious amounts of purple - both of which I LOVE} but I lucked out last week when I found this darling on the sale rack in my size. Oh and did I mention it was an additional % off sale day? Yeah, I was pretty pumped about that too.

Home Alone


Solo dances parties like the above are probably my favorite thing about living alone. Plus I couldn't let this outfit go completely undocumented {blame the constant rain and almost freezing temps today}.

Oh and that middle photo there on the bottom.

Signature dance move meet the blog.

Did I mention I met Suze this weekend? Oh right, I did and now I won’t shut up about it. So yeah that happened and it was loads of fun! On top of all of the rambling, eating and shopping {of course} there was a bit of clothes swapping. This is my first swap experience {unless you consider borrowing my sister’s clothes regularly} and I have to say – I’M HOOKED! Half way through our shopping excursion Suze and I were already calling dibs on the items we purchased during the day. But let's talk about this skirt shall we? I wear my fair share of skirts, but I don't think I've sported anything quite like this pattern midi beauty. I'm hoping to get at least one more wear out if it before {reluctantly} returning it. Ideas, anyone?

Just a glimpse at part of my weekend. Gotta love when the weather cooperates with your plans, right? Plus my sister is kinda awesome {although she refused any direct photos} My other weekend highlight? Hanging out with this girl.

Oh that Susan Aumiller. It's Ah-miller in case you thought it was French like I did.

If you follow me on twitter {this twitter, not that twitter} then you know I practically sprinted to Target after seeing Kendi wear this dress. If I could, I would copy Kendi everyday {see what I did there?}. So I belted said dress, threw on a chunkier necklace and slipped on my favorite wedges. If only there hadn't been an audience at the park this morning. I pulled my usual oh I'm not photographing my outfit, no, landscape photography is my hobby shtick but I'm not sure my onlookers bought it.

Almost Paper Doll

{Top & Skirt: H&M, Cardigan: JCrew, Belt: Anthro, Necklace: Old Navy, Shoes: Macys}






Today’s outfit is courtesy of Suze. Actually, it’s ¾ courtesy of Suze and ¼ Liz is bad planner {another reminder of why it’s important for me try outfits on rather than winging it in the AM}. You see, Suze loves this dress. Yeah dress. A dress I’m not wearing. Kudos to me though for asking Suze for a second option. I believe my exact words were “I’m lazy and don’t want to try on the dress. Can you give me a backup?” She did, cause she’s great like that. Due the fact that I was running a bit late this morning and changing outfits in a hurry, I got a bit flustered {btw, flustered is code for sweaty}. Does that ever happen to you guys? On second thought, don’t answer that. Basically, I switched cardigans.

Enough about me though. Check out Suze's outfit maybe you know the girl who styled it...

Bright Eyes

{Top: LOFT, Skirt: NY&Co., Scarf as Belt: J Crew, Shoes: Macys}




Another bright morning today. I will not complain about that so you will just have to deal with some squinty eyes and bright spots in my photos, okay? But today is not about the sun or the fact that it's a perfect spring day - it's about the flowers...err the florals. Having worn an abundance of floral prints and flower pins lately, I decided to go in a different {more subtle if you will} direction for today’s Everybody, Everywear challenge. As a curvier girl I wasn’t sure if this whole scarf as a belt thing was going to pan out. Would I actually be able to get this thing around my waist twice with room to tie it? Good thing this jack-of-all-trades scarf has some tassels on the end to give me some extra length to tie this sucker. So here you have it, a {snug} floral fabric belt.

If you’re wearing florals today, please click on over to EBEW and share your look. And while you’re at it, take your time and have a look around. You may just find your next floral inspired outfit.

Floral Flashback

Looking forward to Everybody, Everywear tomorrow I wanted to share some of my favorite floral looks. Not only has floral been something I've been loving lately {here here & here}, it's also a big part of style history. Let's take a look.

Floral 1

Floral 2

Floral 3

I think Little Liz's blue and pink velvet floral one-piece {who knows what that is really called} is my favorite. I even belted the thing! Some things never change.
