Mustard Cardi and Vintage Floral Top {In the Closet}

The struggle is real, y’all. For the last year or so  I’ve been obsessed with searching for a mustard cardi.  I’ve been pinning outfits with mustard cardis, combing through online shops, driving all across the State {OK, maybe I haven’t gone quite that far but close enough}, and, finally, I have one. It’s not quite as mustard/gold as I wanted, nor is it as dressy as I want it, but it’ll do. For now.

This is the last week before school begins for the Fall Semester and everyone is feeling the pressure. Some of the students have started to come back on campus. Parents are ducking in and out of offices, trying to make sure their kids’ Financial Aid Packets have come through. And we are straddling that line between Summer wear and business casual.

That blouse is one of my new favorite thrifting finds. In fact, I like it so much that I bought two of them. I know, right? Two of the same tops at the thrift store? The one I’m wearing is cream with vintage wash flowers and the other is white with the same vintage wash flowers. Usually, when I go thrifting it’s with $20 in hand and that’s all I allow myself to spend. Sometimes I hit the jackpot, other times it’s a bust.

I make the oddest expressions… I don’t know if I need a handheld remote or one of those little puppets above my camera to look at, but goodness knows I need something.

What do you think about when you’re taking your pictures?
