Daily Outfit: 6/3/10

Graphic shirt, I seriously wish I could remember. Bought online through a vendor I saw in BUST
Khaki skirt, Gap
Red suede pumps, Tsubo Amset (now on sale!)
Red bangle, thrifted

I’ve been making an effort to wear more of my separates, which is challenging since most of my summer wardrobe consists of dresses. But this shirt has long been a favorite. I bought it because of the back detailing.


And then realized that I needed a fancy convertible bra with see-through straps in order to wear it. Which I tracked down and purchased. Sigh.

Another interesting feature of this shirt? That tiny print in the corner is of oil drilling equipment. Weird.


Husband Mike told me to jump. So, since I always do what I’m told …

    I do wonder what is up with that oil rig. I think I found a similar oil rig design once at Design Collective

  • pretty face

    Aw you look so adorable in the jumping photo! Somehow the red accents pop really nicely and don't look matchy matchy at all… I don't know how you do it???

    Your tattoo goes perfect with this outfit. It perfectly mirrors the flowers, with the shoes acting as blossoms

    You're so fashionable…the red heels to match the flower on your shirt and brighten up the tan skirt…..excellent!

    cute jumping. Husband Mike needs to give more behind-camera suggestions like that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Elle

    Okay lady, I have to ask you: how big is your wardrobe??? You've been doing your "outfit of the day" for who knows how long, and you never wear the same thing twice! Sometimes you do 2+ outfits of the day.
    LOL, not trying to sound rude…just honestly curious. I know you try to be thrifty with your clothes, but…do you have a closet the size of Hawaii or something? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Kelly

    SO pretty Sal!!

    Gorgeous YOU! And you know I love your red Tsubos.

    I love how the green flower stems on the shirt seem to start growing from the tattoo on your leg.

  • K.Line

    You are really doing well so far with the no-black thing. Very impressed by how cheerful this is!

    Love the proportions of this outfit on you. But my favourite part has to be how that gorgeous shirt matches your shoes and tattoo!

    What a cool shirt – I love the back but it is annoying when you have to buy new crazy bras! That jumping picture is hilarious! Husband Mike better start suggesting even wackier things for you to do!

  • fashionflirt

    LOVE the jump!

    OK, a few things- one, I love love love how the green graphic in the tee is mirrored in your calf tattoo. It's awesome and really pulls the entire outfit together perfectly. Two, your hair looks phenomenal right now. Three, you're great. That's all!

  • Valerie

    Very cute! Just want to let you know you've inspired me to brighten my wardrobe. Not quite ready for a total black out, but this week I've worn bright pink, turquoise and today a canary yellow summer weight jacket. Keep up the good work. And, oh yes, the SHOES!

  • Frances Joy

    Gah! That shirt! I'm a sucker for anything with back detailing and that is one lovely, lovely shirt!
