Just Around the House

I’m trying really hard to shop my closet as best I can. I haven’t worn the Potpourri Mini since Spring and warm weather arrived and the Tiered Silk Cami in Papaya has been sitting in my closet waiting patiently for the tags to come off. I don’t have any thing other than work (from home) today but this isn’t too much for just around the house.

When this top first showed up in stores I didn’t like the fit. The tiers looked to add extra weight but I did try on the 8 only. I didn’t jump on the bandwagon until two months ago when I saw how great yogagirl looked in one of hers. So then I stalked pop-backs and ebay not really knowing my size. Turns out the 8 is too big, the 6 is loose but fits but I can also wear the size 4 and 2. How’s that for vanity sizing? I was able to get the Papaya, Light Berry, Antique Stone and the Toffee in those random sizes. I’d love the Deep Violet/Purple yogagirl is wearing but I am satisfied with the ones I have. And the yellow is so bright and pretty too!

Blouse: J Crew Silk Tiered Cami
Skirt: J Crew Potpourri Mini
Shoes: Target Merona Essie Espadrilles (just like the J Crew Caribe)
A pretty good match.
Here’s the J Crew Trevi Shell that I changed into for the NJHS Induction Ceremony. I didn’t wear the little belt it comes with.

It’s taking all my will power to NOT go to Anthropologie to see their sale items. And J Crew should have more new arrivals in-store this week. ACK! Hopefully, the new outdoor furniture we are getting this week should be enough to satisfy my shopping cravings.

Enjoy your day!

    Stay strong Audrey;) I'm not buying anything else this month. It's been obscene! Love the mini. I bought that one but returned it. I knew when I returned it that I'd wish I kept it.

    I love the mini! Tried it on in store with the sale sequined navy tank! Loved it so much, but somehow walked away…… Right now I want to walk right back!!!

    I am avoiding anthro too! If I go to the store, I know I will end up with something I completely do not need!

    I know this is talking out of both sides of my mouth, but I did just break down and by the jaipur dress! THAT? I needed!

    Holly – I will try! My birthday is next month so I'm trying really hard to wait until then.

    The Chic Chauffeur – Thank you! Of course you needed that! I love the print and have the tunic dress.
