Bow Regard

{JCrew tee and handbag, Trina Turk skirt (via Nordstrom Rack), Gap outlet flats, Anthropologie sunglasses and bracelets}

During warmer months, on days when all I need is a casual, comfortable outfit, I always seem to reach for a graphic tee. Rather than wearing it with shorts, I like to pair it with a skirt instead. It makes a look a bit more feminine and most importantly gives more coverage for the jiggly parts. I never seem to get tired of this J.Crew tee. It must be the sardine print - it never gets old. I thought this linen skirt was a perfect companion for it.  The bow detail adds a much needed sweet touch to this casual look

A Little Bit of Retro

{Anthropologie dress, Coach wedges, vintage handbag, JCrew belt, Madewell bracelet}

Hello everyone! I'm back! In case you were wondering about my absence on the blog, we just moved to a new apartment. As much as I wanted to squeeze in a few posts during this hectic time, it just didn't happen. Dragging boxes up 3 flights of stairs until 1 AM every night for over a week completely drained us of  energy. I didn't even open my laptop once during that time. I've never been so sleep deprived in my life - except for my  first summer in the US slaving at Cedar Point amusement park. I kid you not, I would fall asleep standing up. This might be a reason why I'm still childless. I love my sleep too much. You don't wanna be anywhere near me when I don't get enough of it. Anyway, we survived it. Sore and exhausted, but we did it. And then, just as we thought it was all over, Mr. C got doored while riding his bike. We're very lucky he got away without any life threatening injuries, but there's no way he was going to be able to hold a camera while on crutches. There went my photographer. And that's how I ended up taking an unintentional break from the blogging world. I wish I could say I was exploring Caribbean beaches instead.

On the other note, I figured my come back deserved a special outfit - something fun, ultra feminine, that I can twirl in a full circle. The latter is still a crucial factor for feeling good in a dress as it was in my childhood years. This old Anthro number has all of these features. I just hope our neighbors didn't think I was cuckoo twirling around in it during our stroll.

There's something very satisfying about rediscovering old items in your closet and finding new ways to wear them. These Joie capri trousers almost made it to the donation pile during the recent spring clean out. I'm glad I reconsidered them the last minute. Turns out their color works perfectly with this lovely floral top that hasn't been getting much use. Its a win win!
