Thanks to everyone who voted last week for their favorite outfit of mine in August. The winning ensemble, with over half of the votes, turned out to be… the coral pleated skirt + black graphic print tank! This was the outfit I wore to meet fellow Portland blogger Gracey. :)
I was so excited when I received a surprise package last week, courtesy of my sweetie-pie mom. (Seriously, she’s the cutest. Check out her style here, here and here.) She ordered shirts for both me and my husband from The Home T company. I had first seen these t-shirts here on Plane Pretty, and here on GBO Fashion as well, and had posted hints about them on Facebook — but I never told my mom. But it’s like she KNEW. Here’s how she describes finding out about these t-shirts:
And I could not resist trying the tees on right then and there, and my husband was game enough to been seen IN PUBLIC with us wearing identical shirts. And taking a pic of us wearing identical shirts. And allowing me to post the evidence of us wearing identical shirts. True love, y’all. ♥
And here’s a full-length shot of me with the “Oregon” home t-shirt. And yes, I did just slip the shirt over the maxidress I was wearing that day, as seen in this post. And that’s the same no-slip headband I was wearing — I did, indeed, wear the headband all day — and it stayed put even after I put my hair back in a ponytail.
And here’s me wearing the “My y’all is authentic” t-shirt that my mom couldn’t resist adding to the surprise. Both my mom and I have a bug-a-boo about punctuating the word “y’all” correctly. It stands for “you all,” y’all! ;)
Again, I just switched out the t-shirts, but this time, tied the shirt in the back. I am kind of digging how well the grey tone of this t-shirt matches this maxidress, and the resulting monochromatic look. Comfy, casual, cute. A winner in my book!
Sam wore his Home tee all the next day, as well, and remarked on how soft the material is. Two thumbs up from our household!
And this just might be one of the last casual outfits I post for awhile, as I start back to work for the fall term. In-service is this week, and the term officially begins next week — so lots more work outfits to come! :)
