#2 It’s a Wrap
My Favorite Blogger Outfits
I think what caught my eye here first was the color of her top (which is actually a swimsuit!). I know the website says it’s mustard, but on my monitor it reads slightly green-tinged, like a muted chartreuse (one of my favorite colors! remember this jacket I tried on at Loft??). Either way, it’s lovely. And with the natural button down skirt…and dark brown belt…YUM! I’ve followed Erin from CaliVintage on and off for years, since we were both vintage clothing sellers on ebay (her successful, me not so much, ha!) but she had such a great style even back then, that I’ve continued to admire even today. Def take a look at her blog, she has such an easy way about her – both in her clothing and her home decor.
I’ve got wrap dresses on the brain this month! Jessica of Jeans & a Teacup is someone I’ve only recently started following, but this outfit grabbed my attention right away. I always love this kelly green color when I see it on other people but it’s a color I can’t recall ever having in my own wardrobe. I love this gingko leaf print…and her bamboo-handled purse…with the camel tan polka dotted scarf tied to the handle! I’ve been seeing that trend around a bit and just recently tried it myself. For me it’s functional as I mop my sweaty self up with an absorbent cotton bandana!
Unfortunately, I did not get photo permission from the last blogger – I wasn’t able to email her directly, I could only message her through the contact form on her page, so…maybe she didn’t get the notification. But I still wanted you to see the outfit -> Hello Fashion Blog. It’s that color again – it gets me every time! I want to call this turmeric, like the spice. But it’s so warm and vibrant at the same time! And I love the whole outfit – the juxtaposition of the “fancy-ish” fortuny pleated skirt with the casualness of the super faded denim jacket. And those gorgeous slides! And hat! And sunnies! Yup. Loving it all.
Just some things I saw around the web this month that I wanted to share, cuz.

I love a quiet movie. It’s lovely – the relationship of the father and daughter – but also hard. I don’t want to give the plot away. But if you like stories about the intricacies of emotions and relationships, you might like this.
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones is a STORY! The language and dialogue was written so beautifully. The basic premise is that just one year into marriage, a young husband is sentenced to 12 years of prison for a crime he did not commit. The story follows the couple and their families and the challenges faced by the man when he gets out. Don’t want to say anymore about that, but I highly recommend it.
I keep wanting to do a favorite product review…but I got nuthin!
