the things I do

Top: Old Navy (old) (other options here, here, here and here

Skirt: H&M (old) (similar here, here and here with pleats) 

Wedges: Aldo

Bag: Kate Spade 

Necklace: The Limited (old)

Watch: Michael Kors

Bracelets: Silver Glitz Band & Pave Pyramid Bangle – BaubleBar 

I’ve slightly neglected this blog…blame it on this busy life of mine. 

Haven’t taken pictures since last week (yes above photos are from last week, decided to share even though I’m not a fan on this particular outfit).

Not only have I been on a cleaning-out-my-closet-kick, I’ve started cleaning out our home.

Yours truly decided to sell our living room furniture, sofa and love-seat only (yes, I got tired of waiting until we find a house, ridiculous).   And no, I have not found a new sofa yet! Or a house! 

The things I do! 

 But this made it all better! 

Thanks to my love!

    I love that top, it's one of my most-worn tops in my closet. I keep saying I'm holding off on buying any furniture or appliances until we move into a house too so I understand your inner struggle- it's not easy!

    I actually really like this outfit, even if you don't! Something about the pop of peach with the more neutral background. I like it!The Blue Hour

    You look so amazing in full skirts! I love the top too, the whole outfit looks so put together and cute ( as always). And the new bag?! Gorgeous! It'll be perfect for Fall! I'm going to treat myself to the RM MAC for my birthday 🙂

    I really like the outfit, but then again, I'm a sucker for anything orange and blue! I wish I could find a polka dot top like that. I actually tried on the F21 ones you suggested and they were super thin (aka…made me feel fat because I'm not a juniors small anymore!)

    I love the polka dot top, they're so in now! The ones I've been seeing are heavy and I'd rather something light like yours as a transition piece into fall. Thanks for the recommendations 🙂

    Cute outfit! Oh! and I just did the same thing and sold ALL of the livingroom furniture. It was time for a change and I'm ok with an empty room for a while. Your Husband should have a talk with mine =) I'd love a new purse.
