Stripes and Colored Denim

Monday night Jay and I got ready to go to the park, picked Derek up from work, and headed over when we got the idea that we should try a different park closer to our house when we already had driven to the farther one. When we got to the second park, we learned that it was actually just attached to a high school, and there was no play ground to be found. That being said, these outfit pictures were supposed to have better scenery than yet another shoot from my patio, but alas, you get what you get.

This sweater was another recent purchase from Ross over the weekend. I did a huge overhaul of my closet last weekend and threw away all my American Eagle, Aero, and Pacsun graphic tees that had been lingering since high school and now my closet is pretty empty. I'm trying to get a good collection of the basics and transform my clothes into a more adult wardrobe. This is something I've been trying to do for a couple years now but couldn't seem to get enough of v-neck striped t-shirts. I find myself actually wanting to wear different things now so it's been fun to change it up! Also, I'm aware my socks aren't matching.

  1. My socks rarely match...where do they go?? I have no clue!

    THIS is an adorable outfit!! Glad you took these pics...even though the scenery didn't turn out how you wanted. I once drove to a park to take pictures, and there was a yoga class going on(?), so no way was that going to happen.

  2. So cute! I love the draped sweater over skinny jeans. Elegant!

  4. Your closet purge sounds like something I did after meeting my boyfriend who told me I was far too old to be wearing clothes with brand names displayed over the front haha. And I've never looked back!
    I really love those skinny jeans! I have a pair in a similar color but they aren't as skinny as yours and I like yours better! Very flattering on you!
