Fun with Flowers

Wearing - Top: Nordstrom {Same available here} | Pants: Old Navy {Old, Similar} | 
Shoes: Totally stole from my sister's closet | Necklace: Dottie Couture Boutique {old} | 
Bracelets: Mindy's Minute Market, Olive + Piper | Watch: Vince Camuto

While these aren't the greatest portrayal of me {yikes to the top photo where I look short and squatty thanks to the camera angle}, I had to use them to showoff my furry photo bomber, Lola. To understand why I wanted to use these photos, regardless of the angle, I have to rewind to earlier this Spring. I was shopping at Nordstrom with a friend and saw this Free People tank and knew I HAD to have it. However, I didn't really want to pay $78 for a tank when there were plenty of other summer styles I also wanted to purchase. So I went to my go-to, eBay, to see if someone had listed it yet. I managed to quickly find it, new with tags, for $19.99–the only caveat was that the strap had come unsewn from the top. I quickly snatched it up and had the strap sewn back on {side note: I can't sew to save my life, and sadly turn to my husband to sew buttons back on}. I'd say I was the winner of that deal! I've gotten so much wear out of this top compared to what I spent on it. It just goes to show you that there are deals everywhere, you just have to be willing to look. Enjoy this look, and my favorite furry friend!

  4. Your top is stunning. I love the back of it and the cut out on the front. The floral pattern is very feminine and I love the colours.

    1. Thanks Marianne! I added the necklace last minute, but it matches perfectly with the coral tones in the floral print.

    1. Oh she's a total photo hog! She loves to have her photo taken, which is fine with me because she's cuddly and adorable. Ha! I love Free People, but their prices are CRAZY, especially with how see through half the pieces are.

    1. Thanks Ashley!! I thought the floral would be perfect for late summer since the colors are a bit darker. :) I'll have to pass your message along to Lola. Ha!
