Last Friday, I used flex hours to take the day off (chiropractic visit, errands, etc.). Like I’ve been saying, the weather has been beyond gorgeous — sunny and breezy, the perfect combination — and I felt it was time to go maxidressing again.
This time around, I paired this berry-colored maxidress with my darker denim jacket and gold-bar strappy sandals. At the last minute, I added an orange, polka-dotted ribbon belt and — pattern-mixing alert! — a striped tote bag. This outfit felt very happy and cheerful to me! (And yes, I am now replaying Pharrell’s song “Happy” in my head — I LOVE that song, y’all!)
We took photos outside these brightly flowered bushes down the street. So colorful!
Details: Maxidress: Old Navy, gift-carded last summer / Denim jacket: Old Navy, gift-carded fall 2012 / Polka-dotted ribbon belt: Thrifted, spring 2012 / Striped tote bag: Gift from my mom, last summer / Gold-bar t-strap sandals: Target, two summers ago
And this final photo cracks me UP, y’all. Sam caught me about to jump, so the scroll-down looks very funny to me. The momentum has made its way through my hair and my belt — which looks like it’s making a “J” shape, hah! — but hasn’t reached my feet yet.
Happy Friday! And here is a Portland version of Pharrell’s “Happy” song. ;)
