Fancy Free

blueskirt

Summer is coming faster than I'd like to believe.  I'm used to always being cold (seriously, I wear a cardigan everywhere) so having bare arms out in the open makes me feel a little self conscious.  It's been months since I've indulged in my yoga workouts and the lack of sun salutations has gotten the best of me.  Although I did get back on the yoga train a few days ago and it was quite embarrassing.  Thankfully, I was doing yoga from home so the only ones snickering at my awful flexibility was my two dogs.

Top- Forever 21 (remixed)
Skirt- Modcloth
Shoes- c/o Deb Shops
Ring- Forever 21

I know I wear these shoes way too much but they're my new favorite.  I feel like they go with pretty much anything, especially this Modcloth gingham skirt.  The skirt was a gift from my brother and his fiance and I can't wait to find different ways to wear it.
 
On a slightly more sad note, we'll be moving away from my brother in a few short weeks.  I love that he and Alayna are right across the street.  They love going out and trying new restaurants with us and it's kind of a bummer to leave such an interesting town.  I guess it's not all sad because we're moving into our first home, but suburb living is something that I'll just have to get used to... again.  And by then we won't have the disposable income to waste on interesting restaurants that don't exist in my hometown anyway.  Everything is a give and take, and I feel like it's time to be a little less selfish and push forward to the future.

  11. Awww, bummer! Good luck with your transition away from having your bro close. That's gotta be tough.

    I don't blame you for clinging to these shoes. They are great! And you look TOTALLY fit, so don't feel weird about your arms. They are beautiful. Don't zero in on it, because your mind make them worse than they are. =] You look great.

  17. Those shoes are such a staple on here now. Which is awesome because I don't think there's a single thing I could wear with those. Also are they really comfortable? They look crazy.

    I bet you'll have fun living somewhere with a cute little yard for your adorable dogs!

    And I love your ring shot.

  18. I srsly love all your outfits! They are, like, SPOT ON my style. :D 95% of the time I wear skirts & dress, & at least on your blog you seem to, as well!

    I also have a quick question for you...awhile back I dyed my hair pink & it faded like in TWO DAYS. So what brand of hair dye do you use to keep it up like that?

  19. Beautiful! Love the color palette and that skirt is the prettiest!

    And every time I'm fascinated by your hair!

  20. what?! you look fabulous. I would kill for your current state of arms. unfortunately chubby arms is something I just can't get rid of. training for a half marathon and weight training didn't do it so I think I'm just stuck. but if you say yoga does it....may have to try it out, even though I think I'd fall asleep ;)

  21. Love your unique style, this is such an eye-catching combination, great mix of shades.

  22. I love the way you're so bold with the types of colours you put together. You totally rocked this outfit!

  23. This outfit is so colourful and fun and summery!! You look fantastic, you have nothing to be self conscious of, but I'm always like that too when it starts getting warmer and the layers come off. These shoes really do go with everything.
    Moving definitely sounds like it will be an adjustment, but it'll be amazing to have your own home

  34. Oh, I'm so jealous of this skirt! I fell in love with it the moment it was on Modcloth, it's just adorable. And of course, it looks amazing on you! I love that you paired it was a lavender top, it's unexpected but it works so well.

    Good luck with moving and all of the changes going on! I think I'm going to message you and Erica sometime today to if we can figure out a time to get together soon :)

  50. I am absolutely crazy about your hair. You have such a sweet, retro style, but your hair gives it such a modern a quirky twist that it truly unique. I love this colorful look; I used to have a skirt similar to that, and it was my favorite. I'm your latest follower!

    May the force be with you.

  51. The colors in this outfit are just so pretty and fun together! I really love your yellow heels. I know what you mean about it being weird not wearing cardigans. I do go without them, but I always feel like wearing one when I'm indoors. My arms get cold in the air conditioning!
