In the mean time, this post was written and scheduled to post before I left. My yard is full of Golden Rod right now and I thought it would make a great scenic backdrop for some fashion photos. I will miss not having a yard of color to take my picture in once the flowers have faded. It makes taking nice photos so much easier!
Everything in today's outfit is old except the shoes. I got new shoes! Yeah! I love new shoes! Especially when I get a great deal on them; but more on that later. For now, let's focus on the top and jeans.
I bought the top last year from J.C. Penney and showed it you HERE with white capris. This time, I paired the top with distressed boyfriend jeans from Stitch Fix. Remember when I stated in that post that I didn't want to buy distressed denim anymore because the little holes grow into big holes way too fast? Well, I've worn these jeans quite a few times this summer, but I have been very careful with them (rarely washing them and not wearing them just around the house) and the knee hole only got a little bit bigger. I guess that's the trick to distressed denim: treat it like a very fragile item! :)
Even though rips and tears all over jeans are extremely popular, for me, I just like a small amount of distressing so I want to keep the hole as small as possible for as long as possible.
My new shoes I got at J.C.P for only a few dollars because I bought them on clearance for $12.69 and then I had a $10.00 off coupon!
The heels are very tall, but they are wedges so I can walk in comfort with them. I only fell off my shoe once, and it was at home, so no one saw me. LOL! My husband however did and was worried I sprained my ankle, since it's quite a fall from that height! But I was fine.
I was taller than my husband when I wore these shoes, but he didn't mind. He really liked them (other than the safety issue :) ). A lady at our church joked "You grew since I last saw you". I just laughed and showed her the height of my heel. I sure felt tall and skinny when I had them on. And I loved how they instantly dressed up a casual outfit.
I carried an old metallic cross body bag I picked up on vacation a couple of years ago. For jewelry I wore a simple multi-strand silver bracelet. I didn't wear a necklace because I thought there was already a lot going on with the top. I could have worn earrings, but when you have hair that always covers your ear lobes, it never makes much sense to bother with earrings.
Have a great day! Amy
