MUTED COLORS / Pastel stripes, studded grey denim shorts, and white Chanel PST

studded shorts striped top blouse casual outfits
Happy hump day!  Hope you're having a great week so far and seeing as how half the week is over, the next two days will zoom on by.  Another casual outfit today but this time instead of bright colors I went for more muted and serene colors; sweet pastels sort of.    

Discovered another fashion-don't (in my book) with this outfit.  I'm usually a fan of the half-tuck (example here and then a half-side tuck here) but when reviewing today's pic I realized that flowy shirts should be fully tucked or else we have a half-tuck fail.  What's the fail?  Well if not fully tucked in, flowy shirts will give the illusion of a wider width (and the thick horizontal stripes don't help) due to their tendency to billow out thus today I doubled in width!  Lesson learned :)

Not only am i prone to get HUGE bug bites but I am also a total klutz.  I somehow managed to run into a box in the garage and ended up with that huge bruise on my ankle.  Almost gone now but it does make for a good icebreaker.  Just a reminder to always turn on the lights in the garage before proceeding to run to the door to be greeted by your loving dog.  Take care and enjoy your day!


  1. I love the top and shoes in this picture! And yeah the white Chanel bag is always a classy addition.
