2 Way Tuesday - Yellow Cardigan

WHITE DRESS - Lucca
YELLOW CARDIGAN - Gap Outlet
BLACK BELT - New York and Co.
NUDE COMBAT BOOTS - Trouve
  

Here's how I wore it 2 weeks ago:
MAXI DRESS - Calypso St. Bart for Target (thrifted)
TURQUOISE NECKLACE - Gifted from Hawaii
  Today I dropped Princess Sparkles off at gymnastics and went with Pigtails to get my eyebrows threaded.  We are all flying to Rhode Island on Thursday for a wedding and I wanted to get them done.  Pigtails, having been left lately (Sunday school, Moms Day Out, with grandparents) has been clingy with me and feared that I once again was leaving her at the eyebrow place so she cried.  Anyway, she ended up sitting on my lap as the lady quickly maneuvered around my bushy mess I call eyebrows.
"Eyebrow Threading Export"
I guess they could be exports since the women there are from Nepal!
 I originally came up with another outfit for today's "military and feminine" challenge, thanks to the ladies over at Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki, but because it was also "Everybody Everywear," I had to change up my outfit idea.  I decided to go with a white dress with black and eyelet details, a yellow cardigan and my nude combat boots that I adore.  I've been meaning to try the color combo after I saw Tara from This Life, Redefined... rocking it!

Anyway, this week of fashion challenges is exciting.  Today I'm doing 3 different ones.  But I'll tell you what's not so exciting... the upcoming flight to Rhode Island that Camo and I are taking with the girls.  I know I shouldn't let it stress me out, but it does really bug me when parents who can't remember their kids used to do the same thing on a plane give me the evil eye (even when the kids haven't done anything yet!).  The flight is a challenge I'm NOT looking forward to!

Love both outfits! Fab job with the military-feminine! After checking out a few participants today I feel like my outfit choices were a bit to literal and cookie-cutter. Those boots are so cute!

Mrs. J said...

Of course I love both outfits, but the red and white maxi dress is my favorite. You are a busy lady doing all those challenges.

ps. Don't let anyone stress you out, children are going to be nervous, excited and anxious. So they can't help but act out a little. Have a safe trip!! :)

Such a cute idea! And the boots are a great touch. You are a master doing 2 challenges at the same time!

Have fun on your trip! And now that I think about it, my eyebrows need a good waxing too. I've never tried the threading yet. Is it better than waxing?

That white Lucca dress is so pretty with the embroidery. Just love how you toughen up the sweet look by wearing the combat boots. My kind of combination. The color yellow becomes you and you are lovely in both photos.

I adore that cardigan, especially with the red and white dress!

I kind of have no idea what eyebrow threading actually is. I feel dumb.

I hope the flight will be a lot easier than you're expecting!

I love both outfits! Love the vivid yellow on you!

Bonnie said...

Those nude combat boots are absolutely divine. I have no idea how you found such gems. They are amazing, and I have never seen anything like them! (Which makes them even better, in my opinion.)

Both outfits are wins for me! I love the mix of feminine and masculine in the first look, and you know I'm a fan of all the color in the second!

the two outfits are very different in terms of the occasions you wear them to, so I dig them both. and those boots in the first one- omg I want them haha

Shayla said...

I love that yellow cardi! I was just thinking last night that I don't have any tops in yellow and I like to wear yellow in the summer when I'm a little tan. That cardi is so versatile - I'm thinking I need to look around for one for myself!

Sunny & Star said...

I love that cardigan. The color is so pretty on you. And I love how you have styled it in two very different ways.

jess said...

I love it paired with the white dress.

Tara said...

Nothing like falling a week behind on reading...and finally catching up :)

Thanks for the shout-out...I love the outfit you put together for EBEW! The dress/cardigan combination is fantastic, and I think the boots were the perfect choice to 'edge' up the look a little!

Neon Noose said...

I love your maxi dress, such a beautiful color for the summer :)

Cathy said...

I really adore the second dress more than the first. I love that long red dress as well as the yellow cardigan, which complements the dress well.Wow!
