catching up.

merona cardigan {thrifted}
old navy boyfriend khakis & flats

{ similar cardigan / similar blouse / exact pants / similar flats / similar necklace }

i came back from tulsa with a sore throat that progressed into a cough, runny nose, and aches.  i blame the air con we had blasting in our hotel room 24/7, inhaling numerous varieties of smoke at an outdoor music and beer concert, and driving 20+ hours round trip without much of a mental break.  insert rock hands here!

i still don't have all of my mental faculties (clearly i don't have the stamina of someone ten years my junior) so i've been putting together simple outfits without much contemplation in front of my closet.  i still like how outfits like this come together though even if at first glance they appear overly simple.  i like the coordination of the blues in the necklace and cardigan and the gold flats that haven't been worn in ages are meant to pull out the gold hardware on my necklace - although i'm sure no one would recognize that but me!

i originally bought this blouse because i liked the short sleeves and ruffle neckline, but the hearts are growing on me!  i'm not one who is drawn toward graphic tees or kitschy prints, but i think the hearts on this top are mismatched enough that they don't look like traditional hearts at first glance - so i feel okay wearing it year round and not just around a holiday like valentine's day.  it's not available anymore, but here are a bunch of heart-printed blouses i found if you need to add a little sweetness to your closet:
