Today's Everyday Fashion: Add Some Color

Nautical dress idea

I just love this dress - the shape, the length, the simple two-tone pattern. I wore it with boots and a navy coat last winter here, and this spring I was inspired to add some color. My inspiration has orange and electric blue tones that I'm loving, and my version is a more basic primary color palette. Try it with dresses you have at home or with any of the options below!

Update: I'm moved but everything is still in boxes. Thankfully I snapped a bunch of pictures earlier this week, so posts should be on schedule going forward. Thanks for your patience!

Today's Everyday Fashion: The Tribal Skirt

Tribal skirt outfit
Cobalt blazer outfit

I wore this to the Central Florida Lady Bloggers meet up last week! We met for a casual dinner at a Mexican restaurant. (If you are a blogger in the area, we'd love to have you join us!) To see a summer version of this outfit from last August, go here. (I left the inspiration photo on my computer and didn't realize I had already used it.)

Also - I'm moving in a couple days so posts may be a bit sporadic. It's been an incredibly stressful week finding somewhere to stay on short notice, but I was thankful to find a friend with a vacant house nearby to rent while I continue house hunting. Now I've got to tackle transferring all my equipment, setting up internet and finding new spots with good lighting to take photos. I've been working from the same place for almost 3 years now - there will be lots of adjustments so I appreciate you hanging on for the ride!

Today's Everyday Fashion: On Repeat

Distressed jeans outfit
Boho outfit
Mallorca necklace outfit

Friday night dinner, a casual daytime meeting - just two of the places I wore this outfit in the past couple weeks. I also subbed in a white v-neck t-shirt and flat sandals (with the same necklace and added a belt) for visiting my friend and her twin baby girls in the hospital last week. A white top, distressed jeans and bohemian accessories - always has been and probably always will be my casual go-to look. I found a bunch more options that would fit perfectly with this aesthetic below. Not surprisingly, I'd be happy with any of these in my closet - especially the first two tops on the left!
