You Think I'm Funny, When I Tell the Punchline Wrong


 What I'm wearing:
*J.Crew (outlet) Gingham Shirt (similar here
*H&M Faded Olive Pocket Skirt (similar here)
*Forever 21 Elastic Woven Belt (other colors here)
*French Sole Welsh Flats in Peach
*MICHAEL Michael Kors Knotted Purse in Cognac (sample)
*Michael Kors Horn Jet Set Watch

I just love checkered shirts. There's just something so home-y, downright comfortable about them. This soft color combination came together because I wanted something easy to wear and low maintenance. Soft cotton is definitely the way to go for that. Love the purple color as well, I like it in a print because it gives off less of a Barney vibe.

With these sort of gingham shirts there is a chance of looking a bit like a tablecloth, which I wanted to avoid. I think the bow flats and fun belt make my look more whimsical, less Big Love compound.

I've been looking for a green skirt for ages and had been unsuccessful, until I found this elastic waisted H&M piece. My favorite part? The deep pockets, handy for both cell phones and snacks.



Hmm, what have we here? There is a very strong possibility that there is some candy in my pocket.

As of today I will be away from my laptop for about a week and a half (maybe more). Thanks to the wonderful technology that is my Blackberry, I will still receive emails and be able to read everyone's comments, but I just wanted to let everyone know why I may seem to be MIA. Do not fret, there will be posts throughout this time - yesterday I snapped some fall outfits that I can't wait to wear and share with y'all, and there will be some guest posts! =)

  1. I love snack pockets! :) That skirt looks really great on you. I like how you styled it with lighter accents in the belt and shoes rather than black - the lighter ones seem much more unexpected and summery.

  6. I want this skirt so badly now! Because I'm so short and wide-ish, I don't think it would look fabulous on me, but it is STUNNING on you. Those pockets are awesome.

    You look so chic, but comfy at the same time. :)

  7. You look DARLING Rosa! One of my favorite outfits in a while -- so casual, so chic :) And I love how you always talk about big pockets in terms of snacks, it makes me smile!! (Also I am going to have to track this skirt down for sure now, because cuteness + snackability means I am super happy too!)

  9. Cute combination! I tried on the H&M skirt (in black), but I didn't have the right top so it just looked awkward. Plus I wasn't sure if it looked like I had saddlebags on my hips. But it looks fabulous on you!
