Mmm ... red laces.  One of the guys who works with John had these on Friday.
I was inspired.

Friday was pretty much our last cool day.  The heat came back with a vengeance over the weekend, and this week is looking h-o-t.  I took full advantage on Friday and played with some longer lengths on my limbs.  I picked up this top at Target.  It's been there for months and I've liked it since I saw it, but my size was gone in a jiffy.  Not one to let anything stand in my way, I went the complete opposite direction and bought the largest size they had.  I love having all the extra fabric to tie, tuck and cuff to my heart's content.

  1. You look so cool. You have a way of finding things that I would not notice right away (like those pants) and you bring them out into their full potential. :)

  6. I love this shoot! And I want red laces so bad now. Also I'm glad I saw you tie a shirt because I was going to tie up a dress to wear as a shirt and I was like "Is this too ghetto? Hmmm..." But now I'm just going to do it! And... has anyone ever told you that you look a bit like Reese Witherspoon? Haha.

  10. Um, please don't be weirded out but I have a total girl crush on you right now. You're like that girl that was a couple of years older than me in high school and was just so, SO cool! Gah!

    That landscape shot of you walking across the parking lot is just so cool. Oh man.

    Right now you are just the raddest.

  14. Your sense of style is brilliant! And I loooove Target. I think all my favorite wardrobe pieces have come from there.

    I love how you can mix and match patterns and look so pulled-together. How do you do it? If I ever try to mix patterns I look like walking schizophrenia.

  21. Darling... this outfit and photos are incredible. I've been a long time stalker, but for some reason never commented. I think it's because I found your blog when I found my other 'firsts' aka back when I was a stalker without a blog and I never commented. I'm sorry you got lumped into that, because your blog is one of the few that has stood the test of time. I couldn't NOT comment when I saw this post though.. You're always sassy, but I loved how these photos were so goofy and fun. Which is not to say your photos usually arent.. hmm I think you smell what I'm stepping in. The black and white with the stripes and firework pants and the wedges. lovelovelovelovelovelove. My personal fav is the second to last. did I mention I love this outfit? Sheesh Merl tone it down for the first comment..

  25. Oh, girl. You are rocking my world here. I adore this look- so funky and fun, but still put together with the proportions and the simple color palate. The use of the Red Lace certainly gives you an air of daring, too. ;) Never heard of them, but now I'm curious about them, both as an accessory AND a snack...
