the weekend before last.


outfit1_ skirt: target, bodysuit: h&m, boots: tommy hilfiger
outfit2_ skirt: vintage (japan), tubetop: wetseal (like 10 yrs ago), sandals: simply vera

so the weekend before last i actually took photos of my outfits.. 2 totally different styles.. after wearing the first outfit on saturday.. to run errands with the husband.. it was decidedly still too hot for sleeves.. and boots. so on sunday when i did a bit of outdoor shopping on my own i made sure i was dressed for the weather. i hadn't worn a tubetop in who knows how long let alone with my midriff showing, so i felt a bit nekkid.. it was experimental.. and i figured i only have like a year or two before this is possibly no longer age appropriate..

  1. Hmm. I wear tube tops, and I'm a lot older than you! I wear long ones, though, ones that go far past the waistband of my low-rise jeans.

    I hope I'm not a pathetic old person.

  2. @ enc: oh dear! long strapless tops definitely do not have an age limit! you are fabulous at forty! i was thinking i probably shouldn't be baring my midriff past 30 though.. i have teenage neighbors and i'd hate to get confused for one!

  6. instead of commenting on every outfit photo posted. I'll just cumulatively state that you women are just oh too beautiful and your styles impeccable. stating the obvious. but some things just have to be said outloud. or in writing in this case. totally inspired =)

  7. The red tube is super pretty, issa. Wear more often and with even jeans. It rocks.

    Yep, this week has been a big tag week. It gets really hard to pick out just a few.. good idea if we could tag everybody but it just doesn't work does it?

  9. hahah! i definitely used to have that same wet seal tube top. you're so good at keeping stuff for a long time!

    i've been wondering if my denim (mini) skirts are no longer age-appropriate. so cute w/ flat boots and knee-high socks though....

  20. your blog definitely deserves any award :)
    and you know...i hated jumpsuits for a long time. but everywhere i went, i seemed to have a knack for finding the only one in the store. it had to be a sign, so i tried one on. and now i'm hooked. ugh, one more thing to spend money on!!
