Blue [da ba dee].




Sweater: Sparkle & Fade Jeans: AG Shoes: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's (similar style hereNecklace: Target

Yo, listen up... here's a story...

Just kidding. Lets start with a warning: Things might get a little patchy here in a second, IF YOU GET LOST, SKIP TO THE BELOW PARAGRAPHS. Anyways, I really had no choice but to title a post that includes a fairly monochromatic blue outfit after a song about the same thing. Sure, the song is actually about a little guy that lives in a blue world. But this song is embedded into my brain for the rest of eternity because in 7th grade, it was a hit single AND ALSO I tried out for cheerleading, so naturally the try-out song WAS Blue Da Ba Dee. And naturally I had to rehearse the dance 900+ times and naturally my dad had to watch and critique, you know so I'd be ready, and naturally I made the squad. Though, I must say I am fairly certain I made it because I had good grades and not sweet dance skills. And by fairly certain- I mean, they told me I made the squad because I had good grades. I really am a bad dancer [though it has never stopped me].

For those of you who have NO IDEA what I even was just talking about, YouTube Blue by Eiffel 65. For those who did follow along- You are most welcome, I am glad I could ensure the song would be stuck in your head the rest of the week.

Now, I'm going to circle this airplane back around and bring it in for a landing by focusing on the actual purpose of this post- the clothes! I get so off track sometimes, which is honestly the primary reason I rarely look "put together."

I threw this little ditty on last Saturday for best friend brunch. It was quite brisk, meaning this sweater was an absolute life saver. Adding my favorite AG Jeans allowed for supreme comfort as I proceeded to eat 43 croissants. NOW, if you take anything away from this post- please don't let it be my story about Junior High Cheerleading, but instead... my ONE FASHION TIP: Fill your closet with statement shoes and accessories, and invest in basic clothing pieces. This allows for a lot of mixing and matching and upgrading a regularly boring outfit to something snazzy: cue the leopard flats and chunky necklace. I mean, if you can't cut it on the dance floor, you're going to have to shine somewhere. See how I made it all connect there at the end? You're welcome.

  2. I wish I could wear flats! They never have enough arch support for me and I always feel like my legs look stumpy. Super cute outfit!
