How fun is this (on sale!!) colorful, geometric print top?! I just can’t get enough of jewel tones lately. I had bought two other tie front blouses from Express (styled here and here) and was surprised at how well they laid on my body type (5′, athletic build and short wasted), so I thought I’d add one more to the mix.
Originally, I was going to style this top with white denim, but changed my mind while loading up my car for this shoot, and I’m so glad I did. Pairing this ensemble with a leopard boot makes it pop enough, I thought adding white denim may take it a little too far. In the spring, I’ll probably style it with white denim and a wedge sandal.
This past week has been a whirlwind! Between preparing for the Gadsden Service Guild Preview Party and rummage Sale, working full time, and school activities/ life in general, I’m pooped!
We worked diligently all week unpacking and organizing for the sale, and the Preview Party Friday night was a huge success! I was so proud of last years totals that I thought it would be hard to top that, but we made $1,000.00 more this year than last! I’m excited to hear what the grand totals are!
After Preview Party Friday night, I went for drinks with my new girlfriend Crystal and her husband whom I grew up with. It was nice to get to know her a little better and to catch up with an old friend. Y’all, they are so freaking cute together! What wasn’t so nice was the hangover I had Saturday morning. It was worth it though.
The time change had me ready for bed at 5:00 last night, but I chugged along, making it until 9:00, then I was out for the count. Anyone else?
Last, but not least, don’t forget to vote tomorrow! No mater your party, every vote counts! We’re lucky to live in a country that we get a say, so don’t be lazy!
