Welcome, fashionistas and friends!
Rolling out the cat walk again today for The Blended Blog’s third “Style Perspectives” link-up. To recap, each TBB contributor will be featured on a Wednesday over the next few months styling one of her signature looks. Then the rest of us will create our own interpretations of the featured style. Week one was moi wearing my faux fur wrap and week two had Lisa styling shades of week.
This week, following Sarah’s good lead, we are wearing white. As in white pants…but not to be confused in any way with tidy whiteys – ha, I just realized I have been saying this phrase all wrong!
Apparently, the whiteys aren’t tidy (I was thinking clean), they are tight. Tighty-whities? Did ya’all know that already? I seem to miss the boat on a lot of these expressions.
Here’s how I styled my tidy whiteys. Well, you know what I mean.
I put my Loft white straight leg denim [similar, similar] together with a navy tee [similar, similar] from Loft Outlet. I decided to add a wrap [similar] from H&M in an Asian-inspired print. Slipped on my Michael Kors sandals and accessorized the look with jewelry from Charming Charlie. I couldn’t decide which chain I liked best but went with the heavier one today.
So, just I was looking at H&M online to provide a link to my chiffon duster and guess what?
My duster isn’t a duster at all. Nope, not a wrap or a cardi, either.
It’s a DRESS!
Check it out, here.
And not only that, but it comes in several patterns that I like as well or maybe even better than the one I bought. I foresee another trip to H&M in the near future.
Well, all I can say is you can put lipstick on a pig…
And it looks like this piglet below is expecting a flood (here on the desert?). She has her high-waters on.
But shhh, don’t say anything, cause poor dear is also wearing a dress as a wrap.
Didn’t her mother teach her how to dress?
Maybe this would be a good time for you to link up your favorite white pants look, show her how it’s done. Click on the LinkInz below to join the fun.
And if you don’t blog, you can still play dress up with us by posting your look to FB, Instagram or Twitter and adding the tag #tbbstyle.
Then start making plans for how you will style our next signature piece – a pattern blouse with neutrals.
With that, I am off to bed. We are on baby-watch in my family. Lauren’s first baby is due this Friday, on my BFF Sharon’s birthday. But things are beginning to “stir’ and we are wondering if Lucia is going to debut earlier than expected. I am planning to hop on a plane for Houston the minute Lauren tells me to so if I disappear suddenly for a day or two, I am sure you will understand.
We are taking bets on Lucia’s weight and birth time and day, if you would like to leave your guess below, just for fun.
Please think a good thought or send up a little prayer for my baby and her baby over the next few days until we are all smothering our bundle of joy with love.
Hugs and kisses,
