I'd like to say it was all part of my strategy to use the same two pieces in all of my looks this month to show their versatility, but truthfully that's not how it went down.
1. Olive Tank
The Perfect Tanks at Old Navy are just so cheap that it's hard for me not to grab a couple of colors or prints when I'm in store. I don't wear much olive green, so I searched Pinterest for "Olive Tank" and then decided to try out this Pin:
Jacket: Express / Chambray Shirt: J. Crew Factory / White Skinnies: Express Tank: Old Navy "Into the Woods" / Necklace: Express / Sandals: Old Navy / Bracelet: Express
Result: I don't have a denim jacket so at first I tried this with my Chambray Shirt as shown above. I wasn't in love with that look, so I switched to my moto jacket instead. That felt much more "me," and I ended up wearing this outfit that day and sharing it on Instagram:
2. Pink Ribbon Barcelona Cami
After seeing this hot pink cami on Charnele and Rachelle, I knew it would be a great color to have for spring and summer. I decided to try some simple styling like this pin.
Express / White Skinnies: Express / Cami: Express "Pink Ribbon" / Sandals: Old Navy / Bracelet: Express / Necklace: Old Navy (Similar)
Result: I liked this outfit a lot, but most spring days here I do need something little warmer than just a cami for part of the day. Both Charnele and Rachelle wore a denim jacket in their outfits with this exact top, so once again I went for my moto jacket as a substitute. I was happy with the look so it's only a matter of time before I wear this.
3. Stripes and Loafers
I don't know if this is happening to everyone, but lately Pinterest has a lot of "Picked for You" pins in my feed when I log in. But so far they're really good at picking stuff I like! This pin was something they suggested so I re-pinned it and decided to test it out with yet another Old Navy tank.
Express / White Skinnies: Express / Tank: Old Navy "Black Stripe Color 3" / Shoes: Sole Society / Bracelet: Express
Result: I like the white skinnies with the black loafers a lot but the top half of this outfit was just okay for me. I don't hate it, but I think it would be better with a different stripe pattern or different jacket. I didn't really have anything else on hand that I thought would be a better fit, though. So for now I'll file it under "Needs Improvement" and re-visit it if I find a good replacement piece.
