coral and floral.

this long weekend was so great!  it was full of family time, thrifting, and some much-needed time with friends.  Saturday, my man moved out of my house and back in with his best friends; as much as we miss each other, we're both really excited to have our free time back to ourselves.  in fact, I spent almost four hours at the thrift store that afternoon.  it was so delightful perusing each aisle with no one saying "are you ready to go?"  Haha, my guy really doesn't like thrift stores all that much...

yesterday, I spent all afternoon and evening at his new place, hanging out with our friends.  we had a little cook-out, and some of the guys had a little impromptu concert.  ah, I really love my friends.

and now, back to reality... here's what I wore today:

top: thrifted
shorts: thrifted
belt: Poor Little Rich Girl
ring: Forever21
headband: handmade by my friend Amelia
wedges: PacSun

I know this look may be a bit matchy-matchy some, but I really like how it goes together.  I got both the shorts and the top from the thrift store this weekend.  I loved the floral print, and I was ecstatic when I found a shirt the exact same coral-y shade. this is what happens when I get to adventure through almost every item in a giant thrift store.

I decided to wear such a comfy outfit today because I was babysitting a darling little girl from my church.  she is so adorable!  her name is Eme Layne, and she babbles incessantly.  I always have fun spending time with her.

well, I'm off to go get myself something to eat.  have a terrific Tuesday!


  1. Oh goodness, the shorts are divine! I'm going thrifting tomorrow - I'll have to cross my fingers that I find florals as beautiful as yours!


  2. My boy does NOT like thrifting either. Men do not have the stamina it takes to shop properly.

    Love the print btw.

  3. i love the way u styled this outfit. the print on the shorts is so sweet and coral is the colour of the season. stunning look.

  4. Love the shorts, amazing find! I never ever manage to spot things like this when I thrift. Love the coral colour of the top you paired it with, it looks so pretty and feminine together. Lovely :)


  5. This is gorgoeus. You have an amazing figure.
