Strike a Pose

I am so happy it is Friday. I thought this week would never end. Does anyone else feel like the short weeks are the longest ones?  I feel like I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to veg out, so I am making it a point to veg out this weekend. I'm also making it a point to do laundry, because I'm nearing the bottom of my very deep barrel of clothing, hence this very lackluster look.

I was looking back at my outfit posts for the last month or two and I've noticed that I'm posed the same way in most of my outfit photos. I assure you it's not for lack of trying different positions! I am just really bad/ awkward at posing.

I took a break from the dresses and skirts to wear some pants. In my head this outfit looked a little more nautical and a little less frumpy. I think I need to invest in some higher quality straight leg pants for work since I'm no longer interested in wearing my collection of semi-expensive wide leg trousers.

Shirt: Old Navy
Pants: Target
Flats: Old Navy
Earrings: Gift
Belt: thrifted

What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. I really like your top. Striped tops always look fun.

  2. My husband hates having Mondays off. He says that four day weeks that start on Tuesday seem just as long as a regular week (but a Monday-Thursday 4 day week is great). It's psychological.
    I totally see nautical in this outfit - the colors, the stripes, the braided, kind of rope like belt. Switching up the flats for flip flops or Topsiders and adding a nautical necklace might kick it up a notch :) I <3 nautical.

  3. Cute casual outfit! Short weeks DO feel long, I'm also so happy it's Friday. Haha, my poses end up looking the same too, don't worry! :)

  4. Selah- I agree so much. If you don't have a Monday in your work week, then Tuesday becomes your Monday, and it's AWFUL!

    Wide-leg is still really in... don't get rid of them (unless you want togive them to me)

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I said the SAME thing to a co-worker this morning.. short weeks always seem longer then normal 5-day weeks!
    I adore your pants!

  6. Short weeks always feel long for me too. It drives me crazy!

    Also, I always, always, always pose the same. It's kind of hilarious, actually. But, I figure I'm not a model and I don't think anyone is coming to my blog for the posing.

    Love the striped tee with the gray pants.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I hear ya: I need to invest in more pants too. I've been looking online, but I hate shopping online for pants since I obviously cannot try them on first. Guess I'll have to go real-life shopping, eh?

    Anyway, this is such a cute nautical-ish outfit. You'd make a cute sailor!


  8. you look great in stripes <3

  9. Such a cute but comfortable weekend look!

  10. This week definitely seemed long! I love the stripes on you and I need some pants like yours!


  11. Hello there, I am so excited I found your site, I really found you by error, while I was researching on google for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would
    just like to say kudos for a fantastic post and a all round thrilling blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but<bI have saved it and also included your RSS feeds

  12. I think I do all of the same poses as well. I didn't notice that you do the same poses, so don't even worry about it! I am 100% awkward behind the camera all the time!

  13. Hah! I do awkward poses all the time, so I think youre doing pretty fantastic! (Plus, its always easy to study your outfits in your photos, you do a great good of photographing them and you always look so cute and smile!) Hurray for slim cut pants, I am a huge fan of those, they just feel so much easier to style than wide legs ones. (that could just be me however!) such a cute look, between the gray pants and that cute striped shirt, such a easy look. :)

  14. I'm so glad I found your blog! I am a short and "hippy" gal. I have been reluctant to wear the lovely, colorful ankle pants that I recently purchase, but seeing you in slimmer ankle pants has encourage me! I think you look great in them. I'm going to give it a try...get brave and post a few pics!


Thanks for reading. I would love to hear your thoughts!
