I Have The Same Amount of Hours In A Day As Beyonce.

Friday, July 18

{post title- totally unrelated. except that I got a new mug with this written on it. and it's Beyonce week.}

here's example #163 of a random item I receive becoming a staple I love (more instances: this flannel, this t-shirt, this blouse, this sweater, this blouse.)

my roommate and girl for the ages, Shelby, who has absolutely been re-filling my wardrobe these days, had this top in a giveaway bag a while back. I guess not so much her style anymore, but who am I to not love a hot pink J.Crew silky sleeveless blouse?

| top: J.Crew via Shel | necklace: Target | pants: Gap Factory | heels: H&M |

I've actually been wearing it quite a bit, when it's not at the dry cleaners, which is after every time I wear it (real fancy silk + I spill on everything.) I don't have many blouses anyway, and definitely not that make a statement this easily. I've also gotten into color-blocking lately (aka the trend I have been waiting for my whole life, more on that later) and this top is the perfect piece for that!

I absolutely need to wear these pants more! they sat in a box all Winter and then for a while into the Summer, before I unpacked them, but now there is no excuse. I think white pants really terrify me. but I'm digging the fit of these more than I remembered.

close-up shot of my new necklace! I'd been lusting after one like this after seeing them throughout the blogosphere, and on several friends. I won a giftcard of my choice from Fran & Alissa (thanks ladies!) and chose Target. though I debated getting something practical I actually needed, this necklace won out. no regrets!

and hip-hip-hooray, it's the weekend again! I've got minimal plans which include: making Rosemary chicken, finishing up Legends of the Fall with Huntee, exercise, a bday shindig for my girl Andrea, and a styling session on Sunday with Shell B. Cheri! that's right, I'm getting some professional help! can't wait to share what we come up with.

wishing you all the best weekend!!

Hand-me-downs from friends may just be the best thing ever (and how I get around 80% of my clothes cough cough)

So cute! Love that pink color on you :)

Have a great Monday!
