Flirting with Confidence

Space stealers. My closet has them, and I imagine yours does too. I convinced myself I needed them, yet time and again, I pass up wearing them. I've decided I need to start making more of an effort to weed them out.

I know when I bought this top I loved it, though I was probably making some ridiculous rational that if I just found the right bra, it would look the same on me as it did on the flat-chested model. The reality is, it does not, and while it would likely take all day for me to list out my insecurities, drawing attention to my chest is near the top.

As such, almost every time I put on this top I take it off again. However, I scraped up enough confidence one day to wear the top out, because I need to decide, am I going to be the confident person who can wear it, or is going on Poshmark?

Nothing New

Earlier this summer I was thinking about a bucket list of things I'd like to do, which are pretty much the things I want to do every summer - spend more time at the beach, read more books, plan a long weekend on Block Island, have a picnic, visit a sunflower field, ect. Naturally the end of August sneaks up as it always does, and most of that list never gets realized. Then I started thinking about my summer outfit bucket list, and how I have things hanging in my closet from last summer I still haven't worn!

Yes, I've worn both this blouse and these pumps before, but last summer I imagined wearing them together for a fun evening out, which never happened. Rather than let another summer pass with this outfit not being worn, I decided that Sunday breakfast at the little place on the corner we always go to would be occassion enough.

Friday Five Under $50

Always happy to be greeting Friday again, especially when I've got some fun plans for the weekend including a blogger brunch!

While I've still got summer shopping on my mind, I tried to think in terms of transitional pieces for this little set. I actually tried those mules on in person and they were super comfortable! I talked myself out of taking them home at the time, but I'm wondering if I'd wear them enough to warrant going back for them? What do you think?
