Twelve & Thirteen

Twelve

Works Cited
skirt: i made it
striped tee: target
belt: j crew
flats: yellow box

The last two outfits from my weekend away helped me zip through more of my 30 for 30. In this outfit, I may have looked a bit like a bumblebee during a jailbreak, but a linen skirt kept me cool during our bike ride to dinner, and a striped tee never fails to make me feel chic.

Thirteen

Works Cited
skirt: old navy
gray tee: american apparel
sandals: birkenstock
belt: mommed
bag: uo

Thirteen

I wore this to breakfast and for some last-minute errands to buy locally-brewed beer and visit the yellow jersey, a bike shop Christopher had been raving about. I love gray and white together because it always feels fresh and cool--this ended up being an invert of Kendi's tenth outfit, which I just luurrrved.

Whew, I'm glad to knock out 4 of 30 outfits in a matter of two days! Are you doing a 30 for 30, too? It's just beginning to feel daunting!

30 for 30 sounds like an interesting thing to do...maybe while I'm away (will keep me occupied).

Nice photos by the way. Wish there were some interesting places around here. xx:)

i like your outfits so far - can't wait to see the rest of the outfits!

I love it when you leave your hair down - I think it instantly makes you look chicer. However, the head bun is fresh - and probably a relief in the weather!

I think you're breezing through this challenge so far. I love all your easy outfits - and most importantly, you look comfortable in all of them!

I'm starting to run out of ideas! I guess this is when it gets interesting, though.

I really like both outfits! And I'd love to visit that café one day. It looks interesting! :)

Hope you're having a nice week!

Hug!

I wonder how it would look to pair your sailboat skirt with black tank and chambray shirt over ?
I love all your outfits in your 30 for 30 !

I love your striped tee -- I have the same one in navy, and I wear it constantly. I pair it with a bright blue necklace that I have, and I always feel cute {even if I wore the same thing the day before}.

Camille said...

oops, I mistook your striped button down for a chambray shirt but either way I still think it would look cute with black tank under ;)

bumblebee during jail break - that´s so funny! love the outfit :)

Jen said...

I found the 30 for 30 through your blog and had to start my own right away (and a blog, too). I didn't even think to get more than one outfit in per day - what is wrong with me?!?

I love your stylings and photography - can't wait to see what else you come up with!

I always love a good v neck. They really can be worn with anything. Great outfits!

Diana said...

I love both of these so much! The outfits are fantastic, and so are the locations.

Bumblebee on a jailbreak ;) She's funny as well as stylish! I love that outfit and your hair is so pretty up as well as down. I kind of wish I'd jumped on the 30 for 30 bandwagon earlier...hopefully Kendi will run another one soon! Glad you had a great break.

Destined For Now said...

I love jailbreak bumblebee! You're just too adorable.

gee said...

I love this yellow skirt more and more every time you wear it. I tried making my own using the instructions but it didn't quite turn out right. I think I'm going to try it again once I get home from NYC. I am also starting the 30 for 30 in early August...bestfootforward-kate.blogspot.com

Jasmine said...

I love these looks! The first one especially, it's so bright and cheerful! And I'm a sucker for stripes.

tastymoog said...

hehee, i wore something very similar to work last week-- yellow cord skirt + black/ivory stripe boatneck w/ loafers. after living in pittsburgh i am more open to yellow/black combos. :)

Nicky said...

I saw a pretty gray and white striped cardigan with 2 gray fabric flower appliques at Old Navy and thought of you. It seemed like the kind of sweater you might like and would go with a lot of your clothes. I think it was $26.

Chaucee said...

That first outfit is Paris-ready! So cute!

Dottie said...

Ha! A bumble bee during a jail break :)

Nicki said...

I think the jailbird bumblebee look is adorable =).

Melissa said...

Loving your outfits, and obsessed with the cafe sign. I'm a sucker for Scrabble!

tanvi @ now craving said...

Love both! I *need* that white skirt!

La Historiadora de Moda said...

I lurve that picture of you and your bike!!! Locally-brewed beer is the best!

Alex said...

Oh you do make me giggle :) I like bumblebees so a yellow and stripy outfit is always good in my book.
