so i think i've come to some sort of realization. as much as i've tried to make myself think otherwise, i believe i like patterns more than solids. i've always felt like i'd prefer solids, and i used to tell myself that it was just more difficult to find solid colors, but i'm finally taking the first step and admitting that when given the choice, i go for patterns (and especially patterned shoes). whew, i can't believe i just said that.
blouse: TJ Maxx // skirt: target // belt: vintage, thrifted // shoes: chelsea crew via modcloth
the weather is beautiful, and while summer clothes still suit the temperatures, they don't suit my mood. but, i can't exactly put on cozy cardigans and boots without the guarantee of smelling like an armpit. so that's why i loved this outfit; sleeves and closed toed shoes, but still lightweight and comfortable and no offensive armpit odors. win!
