When I went to an outlet mall with my mother a few weeks ago, I found this ombre sweater for a ridiculously cheap price. And it’s perfect for those days you don’t feel like getting dressed; where you want to be comfy and casual while still feeling cute. You know those days? Well, a cozy ombre sweater meets the criteria (in my head) of comfy, cozy, but super cute. Paired with a denim skirt and ballet flats, it’s my comfy weekend outfit.
Oh, and how confusing is this weather? One day I’m in tights and boots, the next I’m in a floral summer dress! There are only so many in between outfits I can wear… But I put my foot down last week and decided no more black tights until the Fall. I don’t care how cold it gets, my legs will be bare until I’m ready for tights and boots again! I’d move to L.A. where there is pretty much perfect weather all year round but I’m scared of earthquakes. Or Hawaii but volcanoes are just as scary! But the truth is that most of my friends and family as well as my job are here in Brooklyn, NY.

As most of you know, I’m not particularly afraid of color…so neon for me is no problem at all. But what about those of you that are not used to so much color and just want a small pop of neon? Then try a fun pop in a neon necklace, bright pair of shoes, or a belt. Here, I’m wearing nude wedges which I love because they sort of tone down the outfit and make it a bit more sophisticated… and of course nude shoes elongate the leg (and we all know that I’m a shortie) and I can use all the help I can get! Do you have any neon in your closet or plan on including neon in your closet any time soon?
Check out how my favorite bloggers wear neon here!
I want a proper domain for my blog (so that instead of .blogspot.com, it’s just .com) but some dude (or dudette) owns the name and isn’t listing it for sale even though no one is using the name! So that means I might have to change my blog name…sob. Just a heads up for y’all!
I bought this dress and shirt in J.Crew Factory a few weeks because it was on sale. No, I did not need it…at all. But the price was too good to pass up! You understand me, right?? I think I may be crossing the border of possible shopaholic to OMG SHIRA YOU’RE A LEGIT SHOPAHOLIC…. so I’m really going to try and limit purchases for the next…well, as long as I could. Ha ha. I’ll let you know how it goes:)
I’m on the fence about this outfit. In my head, it seemed really cute but actually seeing these photos and I’m not liking it as much as I thought it would. The bold colorblocking with the printed skirt might be a bit much for my comfort zone. What do you think?
Also, who noticed that I progressed to a half tuck? 🙂 I’m working my way slowly toward tucking shirts in all the way. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll tuck a shirt in completely!
I’ve never felt comfortable tucking in my shirts. It started in high school with my hideously unflattering pleated uniform with school rules requiring that the shirt must be tucked in at all times. Let’s just say that it wasn’t my best look (ha). I still feel extremely self conscious tucking in my shirts and if shirts don’t come in petite, they fall at my knees (well almost). I was considering getting the shirt tailored and cut when I decided to tie it at the waist instead. It instantly made me look more put together and neater. So this is as close to tucked in as I get! How do you all wear your shirts?
