Last day of summer vacation for us today...and what do we have going on? A lot! We have the boys' play set being installed in the backyard (it's a little evil of us to install that with one day of summer left, right?! Didn't mean for it to work out that way but it happened...), we have school shoe shopping to do, #1 has a swim party tonight for Cub Scouts, and just general "getting ready" stuff to take care of for the first day of school. Can't believe summer is over!
A few weeks ago I posted on my blog that I had picked up the cute J Crew Factory Camp-Shirt at my local Crewlet and this past weekend I finally pulled it out (meaning I finally took the time to iron it) and wore it to church. Here's how I styled it:
Camp Shirt-J Crew Factory/ Ackee Pencil Skirt-Anthropologie/ Belt-J Crew Factory/ Lyons Pumps-Banana Republic/ Pieced Prism Necklace-Anthropologie/ Strung Hoop Earrings-Anthropologie/ Bardot Spiral Bracelet-Stella & Dot/ Flower Bud Ring-J Crew
This is definitely a much more preppy look than I usually go for but it was kind of fun to try a different look. And I LOVE this shirt...can't wait to try to style it with skinny jeans! Hope I can pull it off! =)
Speaking of church, I have a particular bag I take to church every week to carry my things (and the things I bring to keep my kids happy). It's a Vera Bradley bag so it's colorful and a pretty memorable piece. I've had this bag for over 5 years now...it's served me well. The second or third week I went to church here in Ohio I noticed another girl had the EXACT same bag! Ahh! A little awkward, not?!! So this gave me the perfect opportunity to finally take the time to find a new bag for church. It's probably time to do so anyways after 5 years. I was hoping to find a gold or silver bag of some sort to carry but after searching high and low I just couldn't find one I loved for the price I wanted to pay. Then the Kate Spade surprise sale email popped into my inbox yesterday and I found a great option that I decided to go with:
The black with little white polka dots will be a great neutral to work with each week, which was one of the mail goals when looking for this bag. And it was 1/3 of the regular price with the sale...perfect!
Alrighty...off to enjoy our last day of summer! Happy middle of the week everyone...have a great day!
