Planning ahead

 I love the auto-schedule feature in Blogger and I rarely use it!  I really should more.  Anyway, this is Monday's work outfit, but I figured I could set it to post on Wednesday when I'm away for Mr. Monkey's grandpa's funeral.  Phew that is a mouthful!

So I have to thank Megan Mae for this suggestion, one of the other times I wore these pants, she suggested wearing them with some red.  After I bought this blouse I figured out the pairing would be nice, and again, would be something I could tuck in so you can see the fun buttons on the pockets of the pants!  I have worn these quite a bit since purchasing them, but I can't help it, they fit nicely and they were such a good deal!  I do think it's time to look into getting them hemmed though, I have on pretty tall shoes and you still can't see them!

In other exciting news, it seems it is just about light enough in the mornings to start taking pictures outside again!  Yay!  Hopefully that means my picture quality will be getting a little bit better very soon!  I think I may start looking into a nicer tripod as well, then I can use the Pants Monkey's much nicer camera a little more easily.  Right now, it's just too heavy for the tiny little tripod that we currently have!  First world blogger problems right?  Sigh.

Outfit rundown:
Blouse - b. (a resale shop)
Pants - Thrifted Anthropologie via Clothes Mentor
Necklace - gift from my in-laws


  1. What a pretty blouse. Red sure looks great on you!

  2. Love! Now I need to go wear my polkadot sweater with my own brown button pants. Red is such a fabulous color on you. I agree the pants might benefit from a hemming, but I don't think they look bad.

    My thoughts are with you and your family today. Take care.

  3. First world blogger problems- ha I'm with you! I really love the red blouse and grey pants- good styling tip Megan!

  4. I like the red blouse, it looks really stunning, I like the cute pokka dots. And definitely looks great with the grey pants.
    sorry to hear about Grandpa. Pleas take care!



Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
