Today I make a confession: I splurged on a relatively big fashion purchase (for me, at least). Never in my life have I spent over $100 on a pair of jeans. Until now.
My Toothpick jeans from J.Crew came into my life a few weeks ago, and I’ve been wearing them constantly ever since. As much as I love shopping, jeans have been one of those items I’ve detested hunting for. Finding a pair that fit in all the right places….that was made of a material with some stretch for comfort…a pair that didn’t ride so low on the hips I’d be mistaken for a plumber. I know I’m not alone out there; why is is that jeans can be so hard for women to shop for?
It just so happens that a new camera body made its way into my life in the beginning of December. I Instagrammed my excitement immediately, but I haven’t talked much about my new 6D since then. Let me just state for the record: I love it. I adored my “beginner” DSLR (my Canon Rebel T1i) as well. It was a Christmas present from Justin back in 2009. But after four years of constant and consistent use, I knew it was time for me to go to the next level. Switching over to a full body frame has been awesome.
With the new frame also came the need for me to address my “strap issues.” I always used the regular neck strap on my previous camera, but instead of wearing it around my neck I would loop my arm through it/toss it over my shoulder. It was annoying and got in the way many times. I knew that when I upgraded to a new camera body, I wanted to get a hand strap to go along with it.
Do you ever pick out a piece of clothing because of a small detail you love? It doesn’t necessarily have to be a large statement – just a touch of something special.
That’s how I felt when I spotted this scalloped detail tee shirt at LOFT this past weekend. It had to come home with me. It’s a basic tee (nice weight and feel to it), but the scalloped trim creating stripes across the shirt were just TOO cute to resist. And at 50% off over the weekend, it only set me back a few dollars. I also picked up one of the pleated lace front tees as well!
Today happens to be all about mixing and matching. I feel as though it’s been a while since I mixed prints. It happens to be quite an easy task when you pair a printed shirt with a patterned scarf. I know the weather will make scarf weather a short lived season, so I’m taking advantage of all opportunities to break out this particular piece!
As soon as I laid eyes on this shirt from LOFT, I pretty much got in my car immediately and drove to the mall to pick it up. I LOVE IT.
