Summer Fashion- Wednesday

Today's outfit was inspired by one of my favorite movies- Almost Famous. Specifically, a certain Miss Penny Lane.



I actually bought this shirt because it reminded me of a scene from Almost Famous-



I needed to pick something fun and spunky for today as I just got back from my appointment to get my Paragard IUD replaced after the first unsuccessful attempt about 3 weeks ago. I'm also somewhat pleased to say that I hold the record for what my doctor called "the most difficult IUD placing she's ever experienced." Three or four attempts, a lot of wincing and biting down and viola. Anywho...
A little detail-

I decided these bangles were appropriate since Penny wanted to go to Morocco. Greg's grandmother found them in India and brought them back for me. They aren't Moroccan but we can pretend they are.

The buttons that run down the blouse are probably my favorite part of it. I love fabric eyelet closures...despite the fact that they can be a pain in the ass in large quantities.
Outfit Details-
Shirt- Buffalo
Tank- Hanes
Shorts- Buffalo
Boots (that have and will be frequently seen as they are my favorite)- Buffalo
Bangles- Gifted
Necklaces- Same as yesterday

And last night I got a few pics of Preen's 3rd Birthday bash. I arrived very early. But I relished the uncrowded time I got to spend taking pictures of the store.

Inside, looking at the entrance.





The belles of the ball, vintage queens and all around lovely gals Emilie and Erin.


Happy Birthday Preen and Congrats to Emilie and Erin!

If This Outfit Were A Song-

How could I not?

*Also, I apologize for the crappy low res outfit pics, my camera just wasn't cooperating today.
