Everyday Bombshell

I've been having a hard time getting dressed lately. There are several contributing factors which include, in no particular order:
* boredom with what's in my closet
* a desire for separates when all I seem to have are dresses
* the weather's inability to get its act together (it's summer for goodness sake - the high should not top out at 65 degrees)

So I did what I always do when stumped as to what to wear: pull out one favorite piece and build an outfit around it.



The favorite piece here is the red & white striped tee.



Followed closely by my new earrings, picked up at a really fantastic boutique in Athens, GA. It's called Entourage and, although it does not carry plus size clothes, they do carry a plethora of accessories that are funky and affordable. If you live near Athens, definitely check out Entourage.

The Outfit:
Black ruffled bolero- Lane Bryant.
Red & white striped tee- Gap
Denim skirt- Old Navy
Earrings- Entourage
Nude sandals- Jessica London

  3. Love the stripes and of course the denim skirt (I have a thing for them!). Love the cute earrings too! Entourage sounds like a fun place to shop. Problem is, I'm just as far away from it as you! =)

  5. I've been struggling too! I love your solution, and I happen to own that same striped top. Hmmm, inspiration!

    The earrings are lovely too.
