45 Minutes

Top: Lace Affair  |  Jacket: Forever 21 (shop)  |  Jeans: Gap  |  Necklace: Forever 21  |  Wedges: Target

Did I mention that I'm traveling right now?  Yep, these are prescheduled posts.  :)  As you're reading this, I've taken a couple hundred college students to a retreat on a remote island campground with no electricity.  

I wore this outfit on Friday for all of 30 minutes.  Okay, maaaaybe 45m after outfit pics.  I worked from home, which meant I was in my favorite men's sweatpants until I had to run an errand.  I originally paired this top half with my yellow pencil skirt, and it looked fine, but I like the ease of the trouser jeans, plus they were calling my name.  Old habits die hard (re: my jeans rut).  Thrown together quickly, but I liked the outcome!  Note to self: repeat.

  1. I love this outfit! I also like that you didn't belt the top, while I am sure you would have rocked it, that look mostly doesn't work on me. :D I love that top - gorgeous!

  2. This outfit is lovely!  I truly adore your style.  I'm newer to your blog, but every outfit you post, I think, "Wow!  I bet even I could try that!"  We also have many of the same pieces, which makes me happy too.  Keep up the great work - I am always so excited when I see new posts from you.

  3. That top is beautiful and the lace is so intricate! And I wouldn't have paid any attention to that jacket on the F21 website, but it looks amazing on you!

  10. The dreaded Jeans Rut! Still stuck in mine but eyeing some colored jeans to help me ease out of the pure BLUE jeans rut (which is my real problem!) :) Have fun on the retreat!

  15. First, can we talk about how you're my hero for doing anything that doesn't have electricity available for use?! Second, can we talk about how I'm going to steal this entire outfit and duplicate it for my closet? Good. :)

  16. There is nothing so great on this earth as trouser jeans. And electricity, but that's only in my opinion ;)

  18. This is such a cool top! I have 'cheated' and posted outfits I only wore for a few hours before, I don't think there's anything wrong with it.
