Gingham and Eyelet

July 31, 2015

First, I wanted to say thanks for your kind responses to my post on Wednesday. It always feels a little vulnerable to share something other than fashion around here. My takeaway is that we all struggle some with social media and comparison. We are all comparing to each other and all feeling like we don’t measure up when we do. I say let’s do our best to build each other up. I want to be a woman known for loving other women and creating an atmosphere where no one leaves feeling less than. I hope you feel that way about my blog. It’s why I started it in the first place. I found other fashion blogs so inspiring and hoped to do even a sliver of the same.

My gingham kick continues (remember this dress?) with these pants I got on major sale at LOFT – my go-to store. They are currently half off the sale price. Score! I paired them with this pretty eyelet cutout top from Chicwish. How great are these sleeves? I don’t usually wear color, but I loved this periwinkle and pretty detailing. I’ve now worn these floral heels approximately 62 times (here and here on the blog). They are so versatile and such a steal (only $30!). Funny story, when I wore them on this day a little girl walked past me a really loudly said, “Mom, that lady is wearing really tall shoes.” Made my day. Totally unrelated – doesn’t my hair look so blonde in these pictures? I recently got it done (this isn’t the first set of photos), and I really like it. I’m totally a natural brunette. #faker

    I have missed this post. This eyelet top is a stunner and I love those gingham pants – I need a pair of my own. I smiled at the “tall shoes” comment.

    Love how your shoes add a splash of color and your pants bring on the texture. Very nicely done Amy.

    aww amy ann you have a beautiful style 🙂 i really love your hair color too!

    Oh Amy, I definitely feel that way about your blog (that you want to build other women up), this is actually something I feel very strongly about. The world gives women a hard enough time as it is, what would it be like if we all just continually tore each other down? You are remarkable, keep doing what you’re doing!
