You know what dawned on me as I worked on Fashion Friday this week?
I haven’t written a post about trends for Spring and Summer. And so I thought about doing that this week but then decided I didn’t have that kind of time. Gulley and I are hitting the road with the kids tomorrow and I have to finish doing laundry and pack and take enough nerve pills to survive the trip.
But I will tell you that one day this week I wore skinny jeans with a navy and white striped shirt and silver flip-flops. I was a little self-concious all day because I always worry that the skinny jean combined with a shoe that’s not a boot can create an optical illusion in which the wearer resembles an ice cream cone.
I’m trying to move past this. But I think it’s rooted in the fact that I last wore skinny jeans with flats when I was twelve years old and had no hips to speak of.
Anyway, I was finally feeling a little more secure about the whole thing when P got home from work, looked at me and asked if I had a little white cap to go with my sailor outfit.
Some people just don’t understand the trends. Nautical. It’s a trend.
Here are a few cute things I’ve found this week.
It was love at first sight when I saw this skirt at Old Navy. And then it even looked cute on. So I bought it.
I’m still not entirely sure what I’m going to wear it with. Maybe a white t-shirt and denim jacket. Or maybe a bright orange or yellow tank. Or maybe even emerald green. I’m not sure. I need to play around with different options.
This is such a great top. Perfect with shorts or white jeans during the summer. Or you could wear it under a jacket while the weather is still cool.
Such cute sandals. And they come in an array of colors.
Even though I never dreamed I’d be back to shopping for anything chambray at this stage in my life, I would really like to find a cute chambray shirt. It’s the perfect thing to wear with all those colored jeans that I don’t own yet but am planning to buy at some point.

This would be so cute with white skinny jeans and turquoise accessories.
This purse is great. And it comes in so many bright colors.
I don’t know that I can pull off a fedora. Much less, a straw fedora. But I’m tempted to try it.
I’ve seen a lot of cute summery clutch purses recently. I really like this one.
I ran in World Market the other day to look for a lamp and to check out their Easter decorations. But then I heard the accessories calling to me. And so I answered. And found these darling turquoise earrings that I will love forever.
There are so many cute wedge sandals out that I can hardly stand it. I don’t know how I’d ever choose which ones I like the best, but these are a definite contender.
That’s it for today.
Anchors aweigh, my friends.
And have a great Friday.
