I’ll say your camisole was a sprightly light magenta, when in fact it was a nappy blueish-grey

I’ve been planning to use that title all month, as it has been lifted from the Decemberists song July, July. I’d been trying to come up with a good outfit for it, and now, as we say goodbye to July, here it is.

I'll say your camisole was a sprightly light magenta, when in fact it was a nappy blueish-grey

It actually cooled down quite a bit today - A lovely 75° without humidity - which meant I could straighten my hair for the first time in weeks. And get away with wearing jeans.

These turquoise pumps are newly thrifted, and a result of my bringing the brown flats in for donation. I can’t say no to a $3 leather pump, especially in a color I’ve been looking for.

Turquoise Pumps

The white jeans are a purchase I made when I stopped into TJMaxx to return something. I’m really bad, I know! But they were only $13.

Broaches

I haven’t worn a watch in years, and the thing about this one is that I really can’t read it. Not very well anyway. It’s more about the look, and I was quite enthralled with it.

Here I am piling on the turquoise again – I guess this can be color of the year look part two.

Do you think I have enough turquoise shoes now?

  2. I love your shoes, and those group of brooches on your hip are great. So simple and cute. Will have to try that. I could never compile all my clothes and chart their usage. There is no where near enough paper to make a graph that big! lol! Maybe we could do one of just new items we buy from this point on? that wouldn't be so hard. You could also see how much you spend in 1 year or how many items you buy. Daisy Dayz Home

  5. You can never have enough shoes! NEVER! BUWAHAHA~! *evil laughter* Those are super cute, though, and I can't believe you got them for only three bucks! And it's too amazing how your belt matches your watch. Perfect color. :D

    I am guilty of keeping a little word document of titles I want to use from my post.. whenever I listen to music, part of me is also listening to what it's saying and what could make a good post title.. so I'm glad you got to use your lyrics!! :)

  35. I love the additons of turquoise, suttle yet really make the outfit pop out.

  36. Great idea for the broaches - I never would have thought of that. And the white jeans look fantastic. The one thing I dislike about fall's arrival is that the white jeans go away. They are such motivation to get to the gym.
