1. American Eagle fringed booties, $15.00.
2. Franco Sarto booties, $25.00.
3. Forever 21 triangle print jacket (cut into a vest), $13.50.


4. Wellworn camouflage tee, $12.99

May total: $66.49.

Total spending for the year: $913.40

Remaining 2015 budget: $886.60.

These shoes have been riding around in my trunk since last August. I kept meaning to take them to the shoe repair. Finally, after cleaning out my car earlier this month, I moved the shoes to the backseat and made the stop to get the heel taps replaced. They are out on bail!

Tunic (worn under the dress), Wet Seal. Dress, Diane von Furstenberg (consignment). Shoes, Seychelles. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Earrings, Claire’s. Bag, Croft & Barrow.

365 is a close-up of some art created by one of my stylists:

I also took a picture of a dead fledgling bird, today, but Beefy told me it was too macabre for my 365 project.

Palm Twee

I hear palm print is “in.” I do like the summery vibe of the green fronds.

Shirt, Maeve (consignment). Skirt, Herman Geist (thrifted and shortened). Shoes, Linea Paolo. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Earrings, Girlshop. Necklace, thrifted. Bag, Croft & Barrow.

365 has nothing to do with my outfit:

Pattern Lover

Friday’s outfit (the one you never get to see) had NO patterns. I feel so blah in solids. I made up for it today.

Shirt, Forever 21. Skirt, Thailand. Shoes, thrifted. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Bag, Croft & Barrow.

I love paterns. This bee was loving the vetch.

Denim and Boots

I’ll try to wear denim and boots all summer long, no matter how hot it gets. A denim vest and short boots look somewhat seasonal and are still bearable in late May.

Vest, AC-3998 (cut from a thrifted jacket). Dress, Peter Som for Kohl’s. Boots, Franco Sarto (consignment). Sunglasses, Girlprops. Belt, thrifted. Bracelets, vintage and Target. Bag, Croft & Barrow.

I haven’t blogged an outfit since last Thursday. Friday’s outfit was awful, Monday was a holiday, and I barely dressed this weekend. But I’ve been taking my 365 photos:

A neighborhood prank(?) I spotted on my morning run. Someone else parachuting. My pattern selection for my 40 B4 40 sewing project. Recent booze purchases based on the bottle/label. Beefy’s cousin and her husband at Lou’s.
