Cropped Denim Jacket

This light-weight denim jacket is perfect for these beautiful but slightly chilly summer afternoons and evenings. The fact that it is a little bit cropped just makes it even easier to wear.

This outfit is a little bit lacking in color, but I think the gorgeous pattern on the skirt more than made up for it. The pleating means you don't really notice it until it is under some sun, or until you sit down and the top layer lies a little sheer in front of you.

Basic Pencil Skirt Pairing

I love a good basic pencil skirt, especially one that has a bit of a stretch for additional comfort. This one is perfect, except that it's a little bit wrinkle prone - and as usual I don't notice it when I put it on. The frills and stripes of the peplum top and the earrings added some details to this otherwise gloomy outfit.

Denim and Polka Dot Peplum

There are too many obvious reasons for loving Fridays, one of them is the ability to wear denim without guilt. I try to wear some type of chambray shirt or blue jeans (or both) on every Friday, and try to fit other pieces of clothing with them to get different outfits. Peplum blouses are so versatile, so it's not surprising that they go well with chambray shirts.

Sweater and Maxi Skirt

It was warm, but not warm enough for a short skirt or a short sleeved shirt. So a sweater and a long maxi skirt combination was exactly what I needed.

Simple White and Blue

Watch: Michael Kors

I loved this Joe Fresh shirt the moment I saw it - I loved the simplicity and the 2 little fun panels in the front. The panels however were very large and long on me, and it was due to it that I didn't buy it for a while. 

I then thought of my Mom's awesome skills, and bought it after all. And, of course, it only took her 5 minutes to make them smaller.
