Style Peek: ladylike blouse + chambray skirt

Okay, so I like this skirt so much I wore it again today. This time with the top belted on the outside. I think I've broke through a fear boundary and I've opened my wardrobe up to all new possibilities! Look out closet! It's very thrilling to conquer an insecurity directly....not to gush - but blogging has literally changed my life. It pushes me to be creative each and every day in everything I do - from painting my furniture pieces to making dinner to dressing for work...I LOVE THAT! How has blogging changed your lives friends? What does it mean to you?

Ruffled blouse - Loft
Chambray skirt - Old Navy
Woven belt - Zellers
Grey flats - Aldo

J is off at his Bachelor Party Weekend (camping near the MB/ON border with the guys!) so Gus and I are flying solo this weekend. I can't say I mind, I like the girly time...lots of reading, puttering and working on wedding stuff. I'm hoping to get out to Gimli but the forecast is kind of crummy, so we'll see.

What are you up to this weekend friends?


  1. I think it's very pretty, love the florals!


  2. Yea for blogging!! Good for you. I'm not sure blogging has changed my life, but it definitely keeps me writing, which is important to me.

    On the fashion front, I have to say, I'm inspired by your use of belts. I was totally inspired by The Happiest Mom's "do you need a mom uniform" post, so I'm going to work on that for this fall, and I think there will be belts involved!

  3. I really like the beach house vibe of this outfit (and the blog layout in general). Way to put me in the mood for a hammock and a bathing suit!

  4. I just love a good ruffle blouse and you go girl for wearing the belt on the outside. I just started doing it too- especially with dresses.

  5. Your outfit posts are an inspiration...keep up the awesome work!! I love that blouse!! Sounds like you have a relaxing weekend ahead....I plan on doing some fun photo shoots and relaxing around the house....trying to stay cool. It's over 100 degrees here... :(

  6. I am loving that skirt! So glad you decided to join the link up!

  7. Gorgeous blouse! I love the chambray too :)

  8. Love a belt on you! Keep it up!

    It's nice to feel like there are other people out there who appreciate your attempt to make every day pretty. And it's great to see others doing the same thing!

  9. You're looking terrific again!
    For me, blogging has brought me into a community/network of fantastic, creative women (mostly) and I love that!!

  10. Love the chambray skirt and belt :)

  11. Love those shoes, they are so cute! And look like they would match everything!
