Thanks for reading!

Daily: Barney

How were your weekends? I spent the weekend relaxing and doing a little thrifting. I found a few key items, like a J.Crew sweatshirt and a flower tank that will work under blazers well into the fall. I’m all about multi-functionalism (as I’m sure you’re well aware). Here’s the breakdown:

Shirt: Gift
Skirt: Goodwill (Talbots)
Heels: Banana Republic
Jacket: Garage sale
Necklace: Elder Beerman
Sunnies: Forever 21
Ring: Charming Charlie
Nails: Sally Hanson’s Crackle Overcoat in Antiqued Gold over Chanel’s Vamp

I had a few reservations about this outfit because I thought the green and the fushia might look a bit like Barney. I’ll admit that I loved Barney when I was a kid (I was a total PBS nerd as a kid), but I’m not sure Barney is exactly the look I want to go for in my adult life. I added a few brown accents (the jacket, the heels, and the necklace) to tone down the Barney-ness of it. And I think I just created a new word with that last sentence: Barney-ness.
