Bowing out early

19/30 Target button-down; Gap (thrifted) shorts; Thrifted scarf and shoes.

I was originally going to try and recreate this adorable outfit that I saw over on A Pretty Penny, but these shorts are pretty high-waisted, and not in a cute way (mom-shorts come to mind), so I left the shirt untucked, and I ended up liking how it looked with the scarf belting the shirt instead of the shorts.

In other news, I'm toying with the idea of ending the 30 for 30 a little early. It's just been hard this summer while studying and all I want to wear is easy, comfy outfits, and it's been difficult to do so with a limited closet. I'm thinking I'll do another three ways to wear post and that'll be it, so it'll be more of a 27 for 22, since I haven't worn all the items yet anyway. It doesn't have as nice of a ring to it, but I hope you'll forgive me anyway.

In other other news, 8 days until I take FAR*, eeeeek!

*That's the Financial Accounting and Reporting portion of the CPA exam....in case you're not an accountant and also can't read my mind.

    I like the way you use the scarf to make a cute floral belt. It's very original! And the loafers are the best shoes you could have chosen for this outifit :)

  3. I wanted to recreate that look too - but I love your version as well! The scarf colors are great with the rest of the outfit.

    And I like the three ways to wear idea... I almost finished my 30 for 30 that way but stuck it out as I have no good excuse :)  Good luck on your big test!

  9. First, CUTE!  Love the scarf belt, so very Kendi of you :)  Second, I don't think anyone would blame you for finishing up the 30 for 30 early.  You're a busy girl and I think worrying about the FAR may be more important in the long run... just maybe.  And my third and final note, good luck with your studying!

  12. I don't blame you at all for finishing early--I couldn't even bring myself to limit my wardrobe at all this summer! Anyway, I like how it looks with the shirt untucked, especially with the scarf-belt!

  13. Very cute outfit! I love the scarf/belt.  And I don't blame you for bowing out early....I'm feeling a little limited myself.  Summer is only 3 months out of the year here and I'm feeling like I'm not going to have the chance to wear half of my summer wardrobe!  Almost done though....

  18. I've not tried the scarf as belt yet, but like the look a lot. The scarf you chose to wear with the Chambray shirt perfectly complimentary. So cute!
