A Good Weekend & Sailor Shorts

Hello, grasshoppers!

How was your weekend? Mine was fairly delightful. I went to an estate sale Saturday morning and spent quite a few minutes rifling through an interesting array of vintage clothing, shoes, and purses. I came away with nothing, but was tickled to see that the newest issue of Teen Vogue (which was waiting for me when I came home) featured an ensemble by Proenza Schouler that looked exactly like one I had dismissed at the estate sale. Go figure. It was actually pretty ugly, though, and not in a good way. The night was spent in the company of some of my favorite girls, giggling and sharing secrets. And then today I went to Target to check out the newest GO collection by their in-house designers.

My reaction? Eh. The fabrics, which tend to be bordering on cheap in every GO collection, were pretty abysmal. I could tell just by looking at the clothes that they were cut in unflattering ways. The only item I tried on that I actually liked was the linen high-waisted skirt in steel with metallic coating, but it didn't seem worth the $30+ price tag. Still, it was pretty cute, and I think it would be an excellent way to look stylish at the office if paired with black pumps and a blouse. A warning, though - go up a size! I'm sometimes a 3, mostly a 5, but I was a 7 in this skirt.

Speaking of skirts, I did manage to score a Jovovich Hawk high-waisted denim mini skirt that was on sale.

I haven't done a good job documenting my outfits or clothing purchases lately, mostly because I've been both busy and utterly exhausted. Not to fear, though - I did a little modeling today. Behold my new (as of last weekend) denim sailor shorts!

It is love. I can wear them like a Navy darling:

Shorts: Paris Blues (TJ Maxx); top: a shop in Toronto; tights: TJ Maxx; shoes: swap; headband: H&M

Or I can wear them with my own strange twist:

Shorts: Paris Blues (TJ Maxx); top: Forever 21; tights: swap; flats: Nina (DSW); flowers: self-made

I don't know what I was going for here. Circus-sailor-dancer chic? Ah well. It works, I think.

I possibly just made a complete fool out of myself. Don't say I never do anything for you!

Cute! i love the sailor look so much, and am on a hunt for shorts like those! I shall have to try tj maxx now :) and i passed on trying any of the new Go line on, because the one thing I liked was still too much for not even liking it that much...
