Thursday's Threads

That's it. If spring is going to take its sweet time showing up, maybe I need to give it a little fashion kick-in-the-pants. It's pseudo spring-like today: sunny with highs near 50. (31 degrees when I left the house however...) So here's what I picked to try and force the season:
Anchors! The outfit was going to be more springy with off-white pants. My dilemma was that the pants were ankle length, which would totally work with those shoes except for one thing: too cold to go sock-less. Socks and ankle length jeans looked ridiculous. So I settled on blue jeans.
Let's look closer!

Top: Rue 21
This baseball t-shirt is adorable with the anchor pattern all over. It's a bit chilly in my office, so I'm a little bit wishing it was a sweatshirt... but that's not the shirt's fault! Even better, this must have been a leftover from last year, as I got it in the clearance section for $3.

Pants: Seven Jeans
Oldies but goodies. You've seen these a bunch! I apologize for the blatant butt pic, I forgot to snap a photo before dressing myself.

Shoes: Sperry's (kids section)
I love these slip-ons! I found them online... I think from Rue La La? Maybe Zulilly? I can't remember. They were closing them out at the end of the season, so I was able to snag them for under $30. Good deal! I love the rope detail on the side and the anchors are made from SEQUINS! I like shiny.

Arm Party:
Apparently my camera does not love shiny... Sorry for the terrible photo. I don't really need to mention the trusty watch at this point, do I? The bracelet is a lobster bangle for Fornash. Lobsters make me think of summer. Summer makes me happy. Thus, this bracelet makes me happy!

First up is a stretch bracelet I made with some lapis lazuli beads. Next is a bracelet I was able to score for free! It's from Ettika. They just celebrated they're birthday and offered up a free bracelet to the first 50 orders on their anniversary day. I bought a horseshoe bracelet I've had my eye on for awhile, and was surprised to get this perfectly adorable beaded number for free! (You didn't know what they would send, so it was a blind surprise. I definitely got a good one!) And last is another Fornash bracelet. This one is super preppy, and I love it!

I really didn't plan my outfit ahead of time today. I wish I had though. I have an adorable bucket bag that navy and off white, with rope handles, which definitely would have completed the outfit. Alas, it's still tucked in safe for the winter. Time to start switching things over!

What are you wearing today? Is it warming up in your neck of the woods?


  1. Its finally slowly warming up here in boston! I even put away my big parka this morning! :)
