Sorry for the delay, We're not going to lie to you guys, we wrote this ENTIRE POST, published it, went to check it, and the entire thing was gone. Thanks, Blogger.
What are we wearing?We decided to mix it up this time! Instead of choosing separate pieces, we decided to choose the same pieces and style them differently and show what they look like on two little ladies who are totally different heights (June is 4'11" and Amelia is 5'7") haha. This is the Berry Cute Gingham Top. This top has cute little red buttons, an embroidered strawberry and the best part it ties in the back! You'll see how much of a HUGE difference this makes in the "flattering button-up" department below...
June is wearing this top with a vintage black circle skirt + vintage collar clip. The black circle skirt is one of my favorites, but is a little big now, so I ended up clipping it in the back but shh, don't tell anyone. I finished the outfit by adding my favorite shoes, the Ida’s by BAIT Footwear. This is one of those outfits I feel comfortable throwing a cardigan over for work, but feel equally cute and comfortable going out in. I can't tell... but I think that flamingo looks jealous. (Also, I'm allergic to bees so this is the closest I'll ever get to one.. without screaming... and running.)
Amelia took inspiration from the red and white gingham and paired the top with a red and white floral skirt. I love mixing prints and patterns, but I especially love pairing bee prints with floral prints! It's like a fun play on words...except instead of words it's patterns, a play on patterns! Continuing with my love with the color red I finished the outfit with classic red heels. Red hair? Check! Red lipstick? Check! Red Shirt, Skirt and Shoes? Check, Check and Check!
Bella Lace Cardigan. This cardigan has 3/4 length sleeves (Amelia says hers fit more like short sleeves because she has lovely, elegant long arms) and crew neck. It's a light fabric, so for those of us rockin' cardigans regardless of the temperature so we can cover our tattoos at work, this cardi is great because 1) you don't have to push up the sleeves 2) it's perfect-ly "biz cas" and 3) it'll deter your bosses from giving you sh*t about your tattoos... and you still look cute!
Amelia wore the cropped cardi over an aqua blue shirt with an allover bee print. Apparently, Amelia has a bigger love for bees than anyone knew! I am always cold. Seriously, if you have met me I've complained about being cold probably the entire time. That is why I love this cropped cardi especially for Summer! It provides enough comfort and warmth, while also providing a touch of sass with the adorable ruffled details! The ruffles on this cardi are great, because they are just enough detail to make me feel dressed up but they don't make me look MORE like a 12 year old than I already do.
