Excited Friday

Oh Friday you handsome devil, I’ve waited for you all week!

Friday is always my favorite day of the week and this Friday is special for a few reasons. The first is that my great niece turns one today. She’s super special and completely adorable. I can’t wait to celebrate later this weekend. The second is that I took today off from work to spend the day with my son before he heads back to school at UF. I believe the beach is on our agenda! And finally Andrea over at Living on Cloud Nine asked if she could post a picture of me on her blog! I hope you’ll check it out here. And if you found your way here from there welcome and thanks for stopping by!

Today I am sharing an outfit I wore to work on Tuesday. Like I said earlier this week, this time of year is all about transition. Not quite sunny and warm enough for full on Summer clothing (although it will be very soon) means it’s still perfectly acceptable to wear colored denim, a long sleeve cold shoulder top, and booties. You might remember this top from Shein when I wore it in this post.

Take another look at how I wore it with white:

Although I’ve worn it twice with denim I am anxious to pair it with shorts. Since the top has the ruffle detail I find it works best with a slimmer silhouette on bottom. If it were paired with something more voluminous I’d look like a big pouf of fabric. That’s a little styling tidbit for you; watch the silhouettes your clothing creates.

I’ve linked some similar items below. Add some ruffles to your wardrobe, so on-trend and completely doable regardless of your age or size! So that’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today, what’s in yours?

Fashionably yours,

Linking up with Patti/Catherine

      Yes, since just a little bit of shoulder shows with this top I felt comfortable wearing it to work. Have a wonderful weekend!

    So happy to meet you! I hopped over from Andrea’s blog. I have a son in college too, so we probably have a lot in common! Love this cold shoulder top – it’s still too cold to wear something like that here (Seattle). You look lovely! Looking forward to reading your blog.

      Hi Lana! It’s nice to meet you, too! I’ll tell ya what, when my son went away to school it was so hard, like much harder than I thought. How about for you? I’ve adjusted but when he leaves on Sunday to go back my heart is gonna break a bit I’m not gonna lie. I have always wanted to visit Seattle, I would LOVE to live someplace that wasn’t so hot all the time. Anyway, I am thrilled to have you and look forward to getting to know you better.
