Just a quick note to remind everyone that the reader poll is open to vote for your favorite outfit from last month — thanks in advance!
And now for another super-easy casual work outfit! That’s been my sweet spot while working behind-the-scenes this summer in the library. 🙂
I almost always pair this purple-y floral popover top with my purple flower bead earrings — the two just go so well together! — and today was no exception. This time, I also added the lilac beaded necklace my husband recently came across, as explained in last month’s budget adventures post, and I ended up really liking the combination!
Also, these NYDJ jeans that I lucky to have fashion-swapped a couple of years ago? They have become my FAVORITE pair of jeans, as they are stretchy and comfortable and cover everything that needs to be covered. LOVE. I am letting y’all know that I am a total NYDJ convert. When I need new jeans, I will be saving up for NYJD jeans, because they are worth it.
The backdrop is one you’ve seen before in our backyard, by our back fence, with one of our pine trees (with tons of sap streaming down it), our winter-blooming camellia shrub, and one of our laurel trees. Settled in-between the trees are two little stone statues, one seated Buddha and one little Jizo Bodhisattva that’s in a more abstract style. We have future plans to turn this bit of the backyard into a little Japanese-themed rock garden, but in the meantime, these stone statues bring a bit of peace to the area.
