I See Your True Colors

As I believe I have made abundantly clear on this little blog of ours, my absolute favorite go to outfit is a pair of denim and a white top. The result of this is I now have a lovely collection of white tops in all sorts of styles, sleeve lengths, details, what have you. It’s gotten to the point that I literally do not go shopping without coming home with a white top. Even T. has noticed, which is pretty impressive (and before you ask babe, yes I do need another top and no I do not already own this one).

There are many reason that a white top and denim make the perfect outfit pair: 1) it’a super easy to throw on and go, 2) it always gives off an effortlessly chic vibe (you know, until you spill coffee on yourself, which basically kills that vibe), and 3) it means when you run across a fun, colorful wall, you can take photos and not clash!  OK, so maybe that last one only really applies to bloggers, but I am pretty sure those first two are universal.  So here’s hoping you are loving this combo as much as I am, and hey, next time you run across a crazy cute wall, I say blogger or no blogger, snap that photo!

You Reap What You Sew

A story for you all: Once upon a time, I went to LOFT in search of something perfect to wear to my birthday celebration a few weeks ago. While browsing through all of the super cute spring options, my eyes fell upon this insanely gorgeous jumpsuit. As someone who only recently found a jumpsuit that actually fit (after like A YEAR of searching, whatever), I did not have high hopes. Those hopes fell even lower when I discovered the only option in the store was like 5 sizes too big and my party was that night!

So, what is a girl to do? Well if you are this girl, you try the jumpsuit on, realize that if the sleeves were brought in it just might work, and then call your dad. Because, amongst my father’s seemingly innumerable talents and skills, he can actually sew! So, being the hero that he is, he rushes to my house and hems my jumpsuit while I am getting ready, finishing just in time for me to walk out the door looking like a million bucks.

The moral of this story? My dad is better than your dad (and could probably beat him up too!). But also, don’t let yourself get too obsessed with size and fit because sometimes with just the thread of a needle (and someone who loves you that can sew), you can take an item from unwearable to tailored perfectly just for you.
