Clean Friday

Coral tank - Alfani, gift from Sheila
Jeans - American Eagle, thrifted
Tooled Leather Bracelet - gift from Debbi
Flats - vintage
Socks - gift from Mom

This Friday called for jeans. It's a gorgeous 80F day with the slightest cool breeze. Most people would take a day like this to relax, but I felt pumped! I cleaned the house from top to bottom. The DH actually helped me out a ton, but it feels great to sit down to blog and do it in a clean house. Of course, I didn't want to be completely lazy with my casual Friday look, so I wore this gorgeous coral tank from Sheila with these perfectly matching socks from my Mom. To tie it all together, I added this tooled leather wrist cuff from Debbi.

I think this goes to show that even if you think you have your style pinned down, other people can help push you out of your comfort zone to find things you like. A few years ago, I wouldn't be caught dead in pink or flowers. But add in some vintage mary janes with rivet details and the leather cuffs off this All Saints dress as epaulettes and the outfit feels totally me.


Many thanks go out today to Sal for linking to my Swooshy skirt in her fabulous link round-up.

  1. So true. Our friends and idols can influence us in a good way, toward trying new fashion ideas. The socks and wrist-cuff look great on you.

  7. Nice weather always works to motivate me as well! Like you I prefer cooler temperatures though, so I'm sure that is part of it.

    I really love that cuff, it's feminine but not over the top. Just adds a nice touch to your outfit. I definitely find inspiration from other blogs. That has definitely been the fun part of blogging so far!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I am so glad you are getting some use from the wrist cuff. It is so nice to see it. When I had it it just sat in a drawer.
    I love how you styled this outfit. The socks are the perfect touch as are the epaulets! You have just given me an idea on how to use some beaded peices I have.

  11. I like your top, shoes & bracelet. Your bracelet could really well match many of your button-flowers. =)

    Your weekend sounds perfect actually. Temperatures dropped here too and I spent a nice Sunday, home. =)

  12. No lie, I have the EXACT same leather flower bracelet!!! Which, um, I guess is really not that exciting. Except that I love it, and mine was a gift, too!
