WIWW - pink capris

I tried to take my own picture this week.
Some people can do amazing self-photos.
Not me.
Blurry, off-center, and this was about the 10th try... 
Is there a trick to this?
Since we were rushing out the door to T-ball, I had Nate snap one of me in front.
Not a whole lot better, but at least it's in focus :)
I spent all winter looking for colored skinnies.  All winter!  The problem is, that I didn't want to spend a lot.  When you are buying cheap pants, you can't expect a perfect fit...I guess.  By Spring, I wished that I had just bought a Nordstrom pair in the fall.  I would have gotten my moneys worth by wearing them all winter.

Now that it's summer, I finally broke down and bought a pair of colored capris. 
They're not the perfect fit, but they were cheap :)
They were $12.99 at H&M.

My shirt doesn't match, but I think that's the way to go with colored pants.
If it did match, it would be way too much pink!
The shirt is blue and white and yellow.
On sale from Old Navy.

Shoes - Target Sale - $10.
I'd been wanting them since last year, so I was sooo excited to find them on sale.
I wear them everyday.
They are originally only $14 which isn't too bad, but $10 is awesome!

My new wardrobe wish:
A striped maxi skirt.
At first I couldn't find one in stock.
Everyone was selling out of them as fast as they could get them.
I finally found one at Down East but it was $35 and I couldn't bring myself to spend the money.  At the end of the season I'm probably going to be thinking the same thing I did with the colored skinnies "I should have done it."  
But I just can't...maybe next year :)


  1. I love the colored capris. I have some colored skinny jeans that I adore, but the colored denim would be perfect for summer! Going to have to put that on my wish list!

  2. I am so glad you didn't "match" I love the way this shirt looks with the pants...goes great! miss skinny! geez your tiny!

  3. you look way cute and i love the colored capris... :)
