{outfit} A Minor Variation

These shorts were an immediate favorite the moment they arrived in the mail. I've wanted to wear them every day, but I have resisted. I tried to style it differently than this look last week, so I went for a more classy outfit (I think...) I took the opportunity to wear my new Splendid top from the Net-a-Porter sale. It is a bit loose up top, so I can't bend down without giving people a show, but that's okay because it's super comfy!

Top: Splendid (net-a-porter) $30, Sweater: Tahari (Marshalls) $20, Shorts: Zara, Flats: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) $95 w/gift card, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (net-a-porter) gift card, Bracelets: old, Cobra Necklace: Vanessa Mooney giveaway, Belt: Kenneth Cole Reaction (Marshalls) $7, Watch: Michael Kors

(wow, my legs look super long in that second picture...for those of you that have been asking I'm only 5'2" or 157cm)

It was sprinkling when I took my pictures so I decided to do a crazy one ;)

And for those of you that don't know, my outfit post titles are (almost) always song titles, here's today's: A Minor Variation by Billy Joel :)

FINALLY to keep us in the Olympic mood, and since Women's Gymnastics is on again tonight I thought I would share some of my past with you. I did gymnastics for 13 years. I wasn't at the Olympic level, but I was pretty good. The first video is from when I was 9 at an exhibition and is really embarrassing. The second is a meet when I was in high school. (I won Nationals in 2004 with that routine for my age group) I might share some more with you another day if you want.

  1. Love a good pair of distressed anything. I have been looking for a pair of jeans for sometime now!

  2. I love those shoes! We went to the Marc Jacobs store in Savannah on vacation and my 4 year old daughter saw them then ran over, picked one up and hugged it and said "I want this!". LOL! Everyone in the store laughed. Awesome gymnastics footage!

  3. I want to wear those shorts every day too! haha... they are seriously the perfect pair of Summer shorts. I want them.
