Striped Blazer, White Denim Capris and Red Gingham Wedges

STRIPED BLAZER - Loft
WHITE DENIM CAPRIS - Express
NAVY TANK TOP - Old Navy
RED BELT - Thrifted (Thanks, Mom!)
GINGHAM WEDGES - Payless
SUNGLASSES - Fierce left them in my car :)

Today I went shopping with my best friend, Plaid, to celebrate her birthday.  I always find it amusing how we get along so well yet are so completely different.  We're in a store and Plaid is looking at neutral colored cardigans, flannels, and white tank tops, while I'm pulling out tribal print shorts, feather earrings and lacy dresses!  But regardless, we always have a fun time, and the good thing is we never have to worry about showing up somewhere in the same outfit.

I decided to wear my striped blazer because, well, I haven't worn it in a while and it was overcast.  I originally paired it with light blue rolled up jeans, but later decided it looked better with white capri ones.  I also decided to mix prints by pairing the stripes with my new gingham wedges from Payless.  Payless was having a BOGO 1/2 off sale so I couldn't help myself and had to buy 2 pairs of wedges.  These were the 1/2 off ones and ended up being only $7.50!!!

Obviously I have a shoe obsession.  Or addiction.  Whatever.  There are probably worse things, right? (just nod your head)  And while I'm at it I'll leave you with one more pair of shoes I've been scoping out (in case Camouflage wants to give me an "I love you" gift).  They're on sale and they look almost identical to the Jeffrey Campbell ones which are almost $100 more!  And if you end up buying them too?  Let's just try not to wear them at the same place at the same time, deal? 
FLORAL WEDGES - $22.50

Those shoes are adorable. Buy them! Buy them! Buy them!

I also have a friend that I like to go shopping with that's waaaay more conservative than I am. It's nice because I bring her out of her comfort zone and she reminds me that I need SOME basics to round everything out. :)

Love the outfit. Those shoes are adorable finds from payless.
The floral wedges are very cool. I got a different style of floral heels from Forever 21. Steve Madden is also selling these styles for of course the $80-$100 range.

Those red gingham wedges are the cutest!!!!!!!!!!! ♥♥ And you look gorgeous in this outfit.

I have been looking for a red gingham dress forever, but have yet to find one. Strangely nobody seems to like wearing it as a dress, only as a picnic mat maybe?

And those floral wedges are love, they remind me of the Forever 21 wedges.

I am glad you have a shopping buddy. Actually, I like to shop alone. Is that weird? It's my "me" time.

Those floral wedges-to die for. I've been lusting after some Jeffrey Campbells for a while now but I doubt I'll ever afford them. These, on the other hand,...

I love your striped blazer! And I have a shoe obsession too, which is why I'm putting myself on a shopping ban :)

Tara said...

This outfit is adorable! I just love the white capris with the look, too. And as cute as the floral wedges are, I promise to stay away from them, b/c you and I already seem to have enough matching items to pull a twinsies post of our own :)
