So this is going to be quick because it’s late and I waited until the last minute to pull it together. But I just want to briefly share that I was listening to the radio today and Boogie Shoes by KC and the Sunshine Band came on.
And I had this flashback to a dance recital in fourth grade where I did a tap dance routine to that song while wearing a chocolate brown leotard with gold fringe and a gold headpiece that looked like something you’d find on the top of a Christmas tree. At the time I believed I’d never looked so beautiful.
I don’t really have a point except to say maybe you should think twice about any fashion advice I have to offer. I am only a step away at all times from the temptation to wear a brown leotard with gold fringe.
1. tinley road quilted vegan leather jacket
Sometimes I post things that I don’t necessarily plan to order because sometimes you have to exercise self-control or you’ll end up living in a van down by the river.
However, this jacket is definitely on my must have list. The reviews are great. I love the way it looks and, BONUS, it appeals to my vegan sensibilities.
Not that I have any vegan sensibilities, but what if I decide to at some point?
Turquoise is my weakness. Love this ring.
3. charmante femme striped top
This is such a cute top. It may also be on my must order soon list because it’s the perfect thing to throw on with jeans.
I realize that I tend to feature a top like this almost every week, but this one is a great price and I love that it’s long enough to wear with skinny jeans or maybe even leggings depending on how long it is on a normal person.
5. voile and lace trapeze slip
So football season is less than a month away. I really can’t talk about or I won’t be able to sleep tonight for all the excitement.
But here’s my issue. It’s tough for a girl to find cute maroon clothing. There just isn’t much to be found. Which is why I was so excited to see this at Free People. They’re calling it “plum”, but I think we all know they meant to say “Aggie maroon”.
Something about this appeals to me. Maybe with leggings and boots?
I saw this in person at Gap yesterday and thought it was really cute.
8. lightweight v-neck cardigan
I am not a cardigan girl. I’ve had moments where I’ve tried but it just looks like I’m playing pretend. However, I always think other people look precious in them. And this appears to be a good lightweight version that comes in a bunch of colors.
9. poetic shift dress with belt
This is at Forever 21 and I think it’s darling. I’d probably wear it with my own belt because belts that sometimes come with these things are a little wonky.
So cute with white jeans to get through the end of summer. And it’s on sale at Anthropologie right now.
That’s it for today.
Y’all have a good Friday.
I saw the Gap jacket too and thought it was adorable! I might have to buy it now…I’m going to justify the purchase as “Big Mama told me too”. 🙂
Lots of nice things this week. I can’t wait for fall clothes. Yesterday I tried wearing leggings under a dress, and I felt like I might spontaneously combust. Apparently, Houston is humid in the summer?
I just tried to wear leggings under a “bordering on inappropriate when you bend over” dress the other day too. I ripped those suckers off after about an hour & just bent over carefully. Leggings are dead to me until the first cold front! Summer + San Antonio weather=bare legs only. This is the math I can understand.
Growing up in Arizona I never liked silver/turquoise jewelry since it’s ALL my mom and grandma wore. I’m slightly obsessed with turquoise now and I love that ring majorly.
LOVING that your jacket appeals to your vegan sensibilities. I totally laughed out loud. It appeals to my vegan sensibilities too, although I’m not entirely sure what that even mean.s
I think you should do an entire fashion friday post on maroon attire us over-30-somethings can wear to Aggie football when it is 100+ degrees outside and you stand a tailgate for 6 hours before the game…just sayin’.
So, I live in DC and am involved with the A&M club here. Last fall there was definitely a discussion among the DC Aggie ladies regarding the need to Step Up our game day attire, seeing as we now belong to the SEC. Also, and this is hardly related, but it’s mostly tourists who wear tshirts in DC, and no one likes being confused for a tourist. My game day uniform last year was a white blouse and a maroon necklace I scored at World Market, yet even that got old after a whole season. All this to say: I agree with Stacey. I believe we need a Fashion Friday: Aggie Attire Edition.
That jacket is beautiful. I do kinda wish it came in grey though. I found the most beautiful grey leather jacket last year, however the fact that it cost more than all of my rent and utilities combined was a problem. And I love how “vegan leather” just means pleather. Come on. Y’all aren’t fooling anybody.
Yes, but if they called it was it is, they wouldn’t be able to charge ridiculous prices for it. ;~)
Seeing the word “wonky” in a post and having “Boogie Shoes” running in my head – these are the reasons I read your blog. Thank you for brightening my days!
ohhh ahhh to the leather jacket!
And yep, pretty much anything in turquoise I’m a sucker for!
Love that Tinley Road jacket, but when did size 14 become “large”?
It’s not tough to find maroon clothing(or anything) when you live in college station. Try Sabi Boutique online. They have an entire maroon section in their store! No lie!
You should check out deep south pout on Facebook. They are in starkville, ms where those “dawgs” reside…sorry I’m a rebel fan…but I don’t hold it against the store. They are always posting super cute maroon and white clothing. They customer service is top notch!
That ring makes me want to drop everything and go to Charming Charlie’s RIGHT NOW IN MY PAJAMAS. Also, I’m judging high school 2013-14 cheer tryouts and the dance they learned is to “Boogie Shoes.” Tree-topper headpieces are also back in, apparently.
