Sloppy Stripes.


shirt No brand via TJ Maxx, similar here jeans AG flats Target necklace Target, similar sunglasses Forever 21

I titled this post "Sloppy" because it really is. But you know, I just have to be truthful and upfront. I typically dress a little bit sloppy. And, even worse, I like it. This outfit is my normal weekend attire- a baggy blouse, denim, and flats. I added in the statement necklace and there was no helping the messy hair, obviously. 

Shoot, I guess it is my weekday attire too.

Anyways. I like clothes that are comfortable and a little boy-ish. With the warmer weather, those pants will be traded for jean shorts and the top will be tucked in. And I'll probably do an outfit post on it and say "told ya."I mean, I just like to throw things on and call it a day and I am pretty sure that is okay. And by pretty sure, I mean, I hope so. Because I just don't want to change too much.

I will admit, however, that those cuffed pants don't look as desirable as I thought- so I am going to stop doing that pronto. Takeaway: If you're wearing a long, loose top- make sure to balance out the bottom half. Small cuffs = disaster! But the rest of it is just the right amount of disaster and oh-so-me. As for the rushed photos, we were hurried into the museum and I had NO TIME for a photo shoot. I promise to be more patient in the coming posts. And less sloppy. I promise that too.

    1. Thank you! Actually, YES! Boise has an amazing Saturday market in the summers- it just started up last weekend. I will be doing a post on it soon- tons of local arts and crafts and amazing fresh produce. It is one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday.

  7. I am pretty sure I 'hearted' this on instagram. I LOVE this outfit! And I think I love it more knowing that shirt is from TJ Maxx and not J.Crew like I thought (means theres a chance of finding it my local store, and I can afford it! :) )

    1. I think you did! :) That is why I was drawn to it- It looked JUST like the J.Crew one I love and adore, but that is out of my price range. They had quite a few at my store, so definitely go see if you can find one!

  8. Oh how I relate to your post! I would personally love to be the sophisticated dresser who just always looks so "put together" (I have a friend who just always looks put together...even on her "lazy days")...but I'm just not that girl. I'm slightly unkempt and always a bit "off."

    BUT...I don't think you even look close to sloppy! I love that shirt on you!
