Feeling Groovy




Outfit Details:

top and skirt - Joe Fresh, boots - Frye, necklace - Urban Outfitters

Maya was singing Feeling Groovy on the drive to school, and consequently, I'm feeling groovy myself.  The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and a bunny even hopped through my backyard. Hopefully, the good vibes will last throughout the day, and it'll be a pretty groovy Thursday.

When I saw Lisa wearing this amazing outfit, it brought to mind a similar tee (this one with a built-in crochet neckline) from the Joe Fresh line at Superstore. I had considered it twice before (once at full price and once on the sale rack), but when I finally tried it on, the shirt had an odd fit at the shoulder line.  I was disappointed, but told myself that it was fate telling me "Stop adding so many darned striped shirts to your closet!"  

However, after seeing Lisa's outfit (and going back to the post daily like a stalker LOL), I couldn't resist but run down to Superstore and see if it was still there.  The navy version was sold out, but lo and behold there was one taupe shirt left in my size. I tried it on, and… no weird fit! (On retrospect, I think the one I tried on might just have been stretched out). Seeing that I have a ton of navy and white stripes already, the taupe stripes are a nice change of pace. Plus, it gives me good justification to add another striped shirt to my repertoire.

Holy moly, that skirt is the PERFECT color. Gah, I wish I had access to Joe Fresh goodies.

Isn't Lisa just so inspirational? I love what she puts together! And I am loving your interpretation of her outfit, too -- the taupe and purple are great companions! That crochet neckline is darling too, and elevates the tee from being just another striped top.
