Can't Stop: Floral and Stripes

stripes + floral

I hope you ladies in the States had a nice relaxing holiday weekend! There were loads of good sales these past few days - did any of you gals score something lovely? I only bought one thing  - a lovely embroidered chambray dress from Madewell when they had their 20% off promo. I spent the vast majority of the rest of my long weekend eating too much, playing with my pup and everyone else's and catching up on new video releases - thank you, Netflix and Redbox.

  1. Cute outfit! I've always loved this floral print. Thanks for reminding me to wear this maritime blazer! You showed tremendous restraint to only buy a dress this week with all the sales! I was bad and placed 3 goodsized jcrew orders. Hopefully I'll hate it all:)

  2. Ahahahaha! My hubs and I did a good movie watching session of our own. What did you see?

    I only bought the stuff that was in my eBay cart with credit I had from returning other things I'd previously purchased then returned from eBay. It's getting to be summer and I need to tighten the belt for the long haul; teachers don't get paychecks in the summer. I hope I can survive sans shopping for two months!

    1. But teachers get two months of no teaching - awesome!

      We saw a load of movies ... Captain Phillips, The Hobbit, Monuments Men, and Elysium. I recommend all of them!

  3. Love the stripes and floral mix! The only shopping I did this weekend was an Instagram trade for a floral romper (fingers crossed that it actually fits!).

  6. Why should you stop? When it works so darn well for you?! :) We also had a long weekend in the UK, and the highlight of it was seeing Emmylou Harris live at a venue just five minutes from where we live! We also watched Days of Future Past, which was awesome!

  7. Nice pattern mixing! And I like how you matched the shoes and bag.

    No shopping for me lately... spent my budget on food in San Francisco last month.

  8. Your weekend sounds lovely. Ah - but looks like back to work in your blazer. Love the stripes with florals!! I wish we could all have summer vacation like when we were in school. That is the only thing I miss about school - vacation.

  12. So cute. I cannot wait to see you style that chambray dress. I have not purchased anything in a week! Aaahhh! ; ). Seriously, I have medical bills coming next month so I have to be good. But there are so so so many pretty things I would love to buy.

    I love the stripes and floral together.

  15. I haven't paired this skirt with stripes yet - great idea! I just got Amazon prime and they have different shows what Netflix offers. I just started watching Orphan Black last night and it looks pretty interesting.

    1. Aw, thanks, girl! No gym ratting for me, but for a while I had been bulking (my perception of it) quite a bit, to the point where stuff wasn't fitting me right in the shoulders and arms anymore. I've quit working out every single day but I am looking to (try) to cut carbs and sugars too so I can hopefully continue to development lean muscle tone. Except I loooooooove carbs.

    1. For the Madewell dress, I ordered two sizes and am still waiting for the smaller size to come in so I can compare fit. Length-wise, it hits above the knee - I'll share some pics soon!
