Are You Ready For Another Outfit of the Day Already?

I thought I would post another outfit of the day. This one isn't all that great. But I haven't had much time to do any swatching with my in-laws visiting. Maybe tonight I will be able to get to some of it. I really should have planned better.


On Monday we drove the two hours to one of my favorite places here in FL, St Augustine. My husband took a few candid shots of us and I cropped myself out of some of them. I am still wearing Chanel Paradoxal with this outfit. Talk about too much purple! I normally would wear a white or yellow top with these shorts, but because I wasn't sure if it was going to rain, I wanted to wear a dark top. It is too matchy matchy for my taste though. And because the shirt is a cross between fitted and a little loose it just makes my shape less curvy looking. Definitely not my best look - but what the heck, I love the shorts and the sunglasses and my purse and the sandals. OK so I like everything except how much it all matches.



 

I am wearing two tank tops that I bought at Target for like $5 a piece. The shorts I got at Charlotte Russe for about $12 or $13. The Sunglasses are Michael Kors which I scored for $20 at Ross. I think I got the earrings at Claire's but who knows. The purse is my Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 which I think was like $560 when I got it. (Yes I do spend money on some things!) And my favorite part of the outfit are the sandals. They are rubber like flip flops and just as comfy, but they have some style. I got them at Old Navy for about $9 thanks to a military discount, but they still only retail for $9.50. I am thinking of getting these in a few other colors, since I love them so much. 

Not much in the way of nails for this post. But how about more pictures of Paradoxal instead? I know lame - but hey as soon as my in-laws leave I promise I will get back to posting some awesome nails pics! But so it isn't the same old Paradoxal pics, here are some I took outside on a cloudy day. You could barely see the shimmer in these pictures at all. It also looks more grey with a hint of purple here. It did look like this in person too. 



                                       


Oh and one more thing, do any of you ladies know where I can score the top in the picture below? I saw this top and knew I had to have it. If someone comes up to me to ask me where I got something, I gladly let them know, but this girl did not seem so glad, she just said "Greenville, KY". Not helpful at all I tell you.  But I made Juan take a picture so I can ask you girls. Maybe I will be lucky and one of you knows? Anyway I really want to find this top, so if any of you happen to know, I would totally owe you one! :)

  1. I love your outfit. I know what you mean by matchy-matchy though. How about electric or olive green for one of the tank tops? Loving the rubber sandals.
    Mean woman. Why couldn't she tell you the name of the shop?

  5. @Megan HarmeyerI know. I would love to find it. I did find one today with two layers, I grabbed it in coral. I would still love one that flows all the way down though.
