Good Monday to you all! I woke up on time this morning, and I'm feeling peppy and productive today. The weekend was fun, but also restful, so I am ready. to. go! 

Huntee snapped these photos for me Friday after work, kinda while we were babysitting? We're both total photog rookies, but when I noticed the ample natural light in the house, I jumped on it! I'm always amazed at how bloggers can take great photos indoors. This is my first attempt, and I think we did alright! 

I love how this outfit came together. The blazer is a new something I picked up for my birthday. I think blazers are awesome- on other people, but for some reason, I rarely like the way they fit on me. Still, when I saw this one in H&M, I had heart eyes and bought it anyway. The light pink is a great option for a Summer blazer!

I've worn this t-shirt a lot of ways since I got it for Christmas (here's one), but again, this might be my favorite way, dressed up with faux diamonds and a blazer + dress pants. 

I bought these pants first because Kendi had them. Though they seem basic (good basic, not #basic) I always struggle to wear them (here's a couple times I've managed them on the blog.) I think it's clear that pairing them with a graphic tee is the way to go. Also- no less than THREE guys at work told me I was wearing sweatpants. Or track pants. My wbffl Art said "I heard a segment on NPR about how wearing track pants as normal pants is very fashion forward...way to go!" To which I said "THESE ARE NOT TRACKPANTS OR SWEATPANTS!" Boys!

The lip color (that you can barely see?) is a LAQA & Co. lip sheer I recieved in a Birchbox a couple months ago. This has not left my purse, and is the most perfect sheer pink. Full details here.

Well I sure hope your week is off to a great start! It's a short one for me, as I'm headed home for Jenae's wedding on Thursday evening. What in the world.

Things seem a little quiet in blogland right now, which is good; that means everyone is enjoying a busy Summer :D thanks for reading, and I'll be back soon!

I don't think you could go wrong with these pants and a graphic tee.. honestly I have no idea what else you'd wear them with. And no, they are not track or sweat pants- agreed!

I like how you throw your personality into the blog post.

I didn't know you can get such nice accessories from Amazon.

Oh boys, they have no idea! Hahaha. That blazer looks awesome--good b-day purchase for sure! I think the looser fit and stripe down the side of those pants have the guys fooled. They just don't know any better!
