with all the rain that we were getting last week, we actually felt some cooler temperatures for a change. we still experienced some humid southern afternoon weather over the weekend, but the cool morning air was delightful - to the point that i was able to grab myself my newest favorite over sized sweater. it's the perfect shade of powder blue and is oh, so comfy! plus it's the perfect layering piece to go with my go-to black cotton dress turned skirt. and while we are talking favorites, i love my spiky earrings that add the right amount of edge to this outfit, don't you think?
and please, can we flashback to jr. high for just a moment?! who ever said the 90's would never make a comeback?! the recent fashion trends continue to prove that person (buzzer sound insert here) wrong!
these tevas are the perfect touch of continued comfort. sure, they are perfect for those wild outdoor adventures (and for jr. high flash backs) but the pop of bright blue plus pink plus comfort made this a must for this ensemble.
