I can't resist a good sale so when Loft has 40% off everything I have to pick up something! And since I'm a Loft card member I had a $15 off birthday coupon to use towards this fun neon yellow eyelet skirt! I initially passed on this skirt when I saw it online because I thought it would be too bright. I'm not really a "brights" person. And this skirt is kind of highlighter yellow. But after seeing it in person I changed my mind. I love the square eyelet design + the pockets! Any skirt with pockets is a win in my book. And it turns out this skirt goes with a lot of cute tops - from chambray to floral to white crop tops. I'm planning on wearing this a lot this season. 

Oh, and this Stella and Dot Rebel Cluster necklace was a gift from my parents for my birthday. If you haven't checked out their Spring line yet do it now! There are so many cute pieces - I want them all!

When Strangers Attack

There are usually people taking walks or kids playing outside when we go to take outfit photos. There's even an old guy walking around with a parrot on a stick. But they usually just leave us alone. Well, one lady decided she'd stop and watch while we took our photos. Which is fine, except she didn't just watch. She decided to carry on a conversation with me while I was trying to pose...haha! She even started giving me modeling tips.

She was well meaning but really, if you see someone trying to take photos why would you try to have a conversation with them? We managed to make it through without my husband freaking out on her. She was literally standing right over his shoulder...haha.

Anyway, my husband and I and a few friends are planning to go to the Magic Castle this weekend. It has a strict dress code - dresses or skirts and blouses for ladies. (I tried to wear my lacy black jumpsuit last time but they wouldn't let me!) So I'm going to wear this navy tulle skirt (that my mama made me!), a white blouse and my Rocksbox earrings. I think they'll let me in. P.S. If you don't own a tulle skirt you need to get one in your closet ASAP. They just make you feel like a princess!

We pretty much skipped spring and went straight to summer here in California. I've given up on sweaters and scarves and have started thinking of my summer wardrobe. I picked up this mint linen tee from J.Crew the other day and paired with this striped textured skirt creates a comfy, casual summer look. I added my white moto jacket for some extra warmth and a little edge. I also thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this mint and crystal necklace from my Rocksbox!

Crop it

Happy Monday! I'm a little slow getting my post out this morning. Who else feels like the weekends go by so fast?! I didn't get all my blogging done!

Anyway, I'm a big fan of Loft. My closet is slowly turning into all Loft items. And I'm ok with that - especially when I find cute things like this cropped, buttoned back top! I immediately fell in love with the cut out details and the boxy shape. This is definitely not a figure flattering top - it's kinda big and boxy but I think that's what makes it interesting. It's not super cropped - it basically hits the top of my low rise jeans. And if I lift my arms up you can see my belly! Time to do some crunches! But if you wear a pair of higher waisted jeans or high waisted skirt then this top wouldn't reveal anything. 
I decided to style this top with my Rocksbox earrings, a spotted belt and some color blocked wedges.
