I am all about quality instead of quantity in ones closet.  And I am not ashamed to wear the same thing more than once in a week (uh hello last post!).  I am most famous for doing this on weekends – if the clothes aren't dirty or rumpled, I will re-wear them the next day.

Omigod, it's Allie in SHORTS!!!!
So Saturday morning, I got up early to pick up Emerson from my mom's house, and then headed to IKEA to meet up with my friend for breakfast and retail therapy.  I only own one pair of shorts, and you are looking at them.  They were $6.99 from the clearance rack at Gap last summer.  Not khaki, not olive, some color in between.  And they aren't the most flattering thing, but sometimes one just needs a pair of shorts.  The weather has been so darn muggy and hot and gross lately in the DC area, skirts will stick to legs and are sometimes a tough choice when chasing after Emerson, pants are too much fabric.  I paired my shorts with a navy and white striped scoop tee from Ann Taylor, a black coral necklace my husband picked up in Mexico, and brown stacked flip flops from J. Crew.  Nothing tres chic, but a good outfit for shopping, errand running, cleaning the house.

Sunday, we had two good friends over for an early dinner and to hang out.  I put on the same top from Ann Taylor, this time with my white low-slung flare chinos from Gap and my silver and yellow necklace from NY & Co. 
I have worn this shirt also with my dark straight jeans from NYDJ and my brown croco sandals, and think it would be tres cute with a denim pencil skirt (recently ordered one from Gap but it's hideous on my bod and being returned – still on the hunt).  This top is currently in Ann Taylor stores and it looks just as great after a run in the washer and dryer that it did when brand new.  I am all about the nautical stripes right now – I have my striped top from Lands End, and am even toying with getting another one in a different color combo for this fall!
