What I Wore: Floral and Stripes

A couple weeks ago, my nephew turned eight-years-old.  His mom planned a laid back pool party for the kiddos.  The weather was lovely, so I finally wore this great tank I got on clearance from Lane Bryant. 

It has this sort of mirror-image floral print in the front and stripes in the back.  This tank was definitely different than other things I have in my closet and only about $10 on sale, so I snatched it up.  The fabric is slightly sheer in the front, so I wore a nude-colored, thin cami underneath.  While it is a little shorter in the front than what I normally wear, I think it did a fine job of staying in place.

I paired this tank with some of my favorites - denim capris and SWAK shrug.  The purple of the shrug and turquoise of the sandals add some fun color.  This sparkly gold glitter necklace I bought from one of Miss Tess Munster's online sales topped things off nicely.

My nephew had a great party.  He's so adorable.  I can't believe he is eight already.  Sean and I started dating two weeks after he was born, so seeing him grow is also this cool way to measure mine and Sean's relationship and how long we have been together.  It makes me weepy thinking about it.  I get all sentimental.  When we arrived at the party, my nephew came running up to us telling us some stories about what was going on and what he has been up to.  He was talking in complete sentences like a little adult.  It is just so crazy.

My adorable niece was having a great time too.  She used to just sulk and give everyone dirty looks and never let us take her picture.  Now she poses when you ask her to and smiles, acts goofy, and talks a lot in her cute little voice.

It was a great day all around.  We ended up running errands to The Container Store after the party, so I was in organization heaven!  Hope you all have a great rest of the week!!
