Sunday Stripes And A Little Catch Up

Sunday Stripes And A Little Catch Up
Happy Sunday everyone! I am currently sitting at my kitchen table, watching a movie, drinking coffee and relaxing for the day. I do have a few plans for later on BUT I didn't want to get up and rush the day. There is something so calming about Sunday's and it is literally my favorite day of the week. There is nothing like having that one moment where everything in the world feels at ease and the people around you seem to be in a much happier mood.
Sunday Stripes And A Little Catch Up
Today I plan to get on with a bit of "adulting" and of course strolling the city for awhile. If you're anything like me then you'll know that getting that fresh air for the weekend is a must. I like to catch some outside love either early in the morning or pretty close to the evenings because it is absolutely too hot out to try and do it any other time. Anyways, since it has been a bit hot, I have been having a hard time finding a way to style pants that don't make me feel like I am on fire because of the heat outside. I am predominantly a dress person but I really wanted to wear the striped pants that I bought a few months back.  I have always wanted a pair of pants like this and now that I have them I sometimes find it very hard to style them. I wore them plenty of times in the Spring but did not find very useful ways to style them in the summer. My original plan was to buy a little vest to throw on top of a black tank BUT then I remembered that I could cut up an old denim jacket and make my own and that's exactly what I did! I didn't think that the jacket would turn out this cute because I am a bit rusty when it comes to tinkering with clothes but I made it happen.

I also chose to wear these cute little earrings that I copped from a local flea market. My ears are very sensitive and won't take a second piercing so top 'slider earring" is a clip on and I am completely obsessed with them.

I know that I have found the perfect outfit when it makes me smile as big as I am in this photo. I am getting more and more confident not only in myself but also in the clothes that I wear! It took me awhile to get there but I made it!

Also, can we pleaaaseee talk about this handbag? It is the cutest thing I have ever found! Not only is it convenient BUT it holds everything that I need. I don't know about anyone else but I am so over the "big purse" trend at the moment. Not only is it in the way but I can't find what I'm looking for when I need it. I mean how many phone calls have you missed because your phone was lost deep in the cave at the bottom of your bag? Yeah, same girl...same.

Anyways, that's pretty much my little thoughts for the day. Oh wait, I just reached the end of this post and I just noticed I never even talked about my shoes! These are my very first pair of mules and I don't know why I didn't jump on the bandwagon sooner! They are so comfortable and I have already worn them 85 times since purchasing them! I wish I wasn't so late in the game but all that matters is I finally acknowledge for what they are.....an amazing pair of shoes!

Best,
Carey
