Today was glorious, weather-wise. I only wish I would have gotten out of the house earlier to enjoy it, but I’ve had too many early mornings lately. Me & 5:30am? We are not friends. But Crew Scheduling would sure like us to be. So today, since it was my day off, I stayed in bed until 11:30, just being lazy and snuggling with the baby cat. She needs to be snuggled sometimes. Then I made myself some coffee & brunch and finally decided to get dressed and go for a stroll.
I did a spot of shopping, but didn’t find anything I couldn’t live without. Not gonna lie, I may or may not have stopped into Marshall’s just to use the full-length mirror in the dressing room. I really need to figure out a better picture-taking scenario.
This blouse is an oldie-but-a-goodie. I actually grabbed it out of the donation bags at the very last minute and decided to keep it. My mom & I found it on MAJOR sale at Anthropologie years and years and years ago. I think I wore it maybe twice? It’s a size 12, which is too big, but I like the blousey effect. I’m super glad I saved it. It’s 100% silk and just feels like the epitome of summer. I think it will finally get some use this year.
One of the things I WAS looking for at Marshall’s was a new summer-time purse. I love my black purse, but it tends to feel too heavy for outfits like today’s. I opted for this cute little vintage clutch I bought on Etsy, but I’d love to find a purse with straps for everyday use. So my search continues. I was also hoping to find a pair of cute flat gladiator sandals in a neutral color, but came up unsuccessful on that one too. Good thing my wedges are so comfortable!
