If you look strictly at my clothing, you'd think this post should be titled something like "Casual Cotton." HOWEVER, today, my accessories really did make my outfit.... consider this post a tribute to belts, bags 'n boots everywhere!
Anywho: back to my day...
When I got up and got dressed the weather called for thunderstorms, and, I must say, it looked pretty gloomy out. As a result, I wound up dressing to match the weather.... plain cottons/linen -- gray, white, bleh. I needed extra motivation today, so I put on my favorite turquoise earrings that can make anything POP! My awesome tank top was a total accident, but when I thought about what I had on, I realized I had awesome medium height heels to go with my other accessories, so I strapped 'em on despite the weather warnings and set off to write Frank Lloyd Wright paper #.... oh? 398 of this year?
Later in the afternoon, the weather looked like this!:

I normally prefer cold weather (and would go as far to say that I'm not a fan of the heat), but in Madison we only get so many nice days per year unless you're here all summer, and we had absolutely no Spring. March and April were freezing, and May's weather has been as much of a scatter brain as I am. I have to say, though, coming home to the above was great.
Here are most of today's accessories:
|Shoes: BCBG Girls via Nordstrom|
Belt: via Mom
Earrings: via SMU
Tank: Splendid via SMU
I think they made the outfit!
Do you? Let me know!
P.S. For those of you who haven't slipped into a maxi skirt yet, I highly recommend it. It's like wearing a soft blanket all day!
