Strawberry ice cream

Tan suede skirt outfit with light pink tank top and embellished sandals — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

What's your favorite ice cream flavor? My favorites have historically been cookie dough and mint chocolate chip, but I've recently fallen in love with strawberry. I don't know why I didn't used to get it before; I mean, strawberries are my favorite fruit! When I put this outfit together, I immediately thought of strawberry ice cream on a sugar cone (since I don't like regular cones). Do you see the resemblance, too? ;)

Today is Pioneer Day in Utah. It's a major holiday here due to the large LDS presence, and there are probably more fireworks shows than there are on Independence Day. It also means we have tomorrow off, so yay for long weekends! I'm making this strawberry pretzel ice cream pie (with regular vanilla ice cream) for a party tonight. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Amour Vert 'Riley' silk shirt in tropical, Old Navy chambray skirt, Earthies 'Morolo' sandals — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

A few weeks ago, I was debating between purchasing this dress or this shirt from my favorite eco-friendly brand, Amour Vert. (They sent me a nice coupon code that I couldn't refuse!) I loved both prints, and while I thought the dress was gorgeous, I didn't think it would get as much wear as this shirt. (Plus, I wasn't sure if I would like the wrap front on me.) I absolutely adore this shirt so much! The print is stunning and unlike anything else in my closet. It's making me wish I was on a tropical vacation!

I played up the cool colors in the shirt by pairing it with my chambray skirt. I also wore it with my light wash skinny jeans and metallic gold flats for a meeting and I'm tempted to repeat that outfit later this summer and blog it. ;) I'm looking forward to styling it for the cooler weather in the fall and spring! It could also be really cute in the winter under a sweater. Have you added any fun/different prints to your wardrobe recently to mix things up a bit?

The NOT-MY-STYLE List

The NOT-MY-STYLE List inspired by Into-Mind — via Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

I was inspired by Into-Mind to write out everything that I don't consider to be my style. I really like this exercise because it's a fun, alternative way to define your style. If you have a hard time figuring out what exactly you do like, think about what you don't instead. If you're anything like me, you're probably quite opinionated about the things you don't like.

Even though you likely won't find me wearing any of these anytime soon (never say never!), I'm open to reconsidering some of these if you want to try changing my mind and share amazing examples of how they are worn well. ;)
