Happy Face & Happy Hems (& Link Up)

May 17, 2018

Today I’m sharing my recent Nordstrom purchases, this fun happy face tee and these cute jeans with a ruffle hem!

fun weekend style over 40

Going out to breakfast is one of our favorite weekend rituals. We have several favorite places in our neighborhood and sometimes we explore and try something new.  Afterwards we’ll run errands (boo) or take a drive somewhere (yay!).  I love to go to the mountains or to the beach especially.  Of course I’d also love to go shopping but there’s no way I’m talking my husband into that!

Anyway, I totally digress … here’s my weekend outfit last weekend.  I love this smiley face ringer tee (from Day by Daydreamer) which is so 70’s.  I’m a bit obsessed with the 70’s to be honest!  And these ruffle hem ankle jeans (from CeCe) are sooooo cuuuute, aren’t they? Those of you who follow me on Instagram helped me decide between this pair and another cute pair. Did you vote?  Anyway, the vote was super close, but this pair won and I’m so glad I got them.  Of course I’ll wear them all summer, but won’t they be cute in the fall too with some funky booties?

Also wearing my gladiator sandals, ASOS square tort sunglasses, Lucky Brand belt, and carrying this tote bag.

My pick from last week is Jennie (Pocketful of Polka Dots) looking super adorable in these fun overalls!

    You can really pull the flare hems off – I’m not sure I would look as hip if I tried. But I do love the 70’s vibe so I’m really enjoying being persuaded xx

  • Reply Chrissy May 18, 2018 at 8:05 pm

    That tee is perfect and I really like how you styled the ruffle hemmed jeans! I know I sound like a broken record, but you’re style is fun, edgy and put together so well! Have a great weekend!
