WIW 6/20-21: A Bug's Life and Finding Dory

I'm matchy matchy not only within my outfits, but also into finding connecting themes with paired outfits. So here's my Pixar movie theme. A Bug's Life and Finding Dory. I didn't set out with the theme when I was selecting the outfits, but I thought of it when I was about to post (I like to come up with cute titles for my outfits). Still counts though, right? Just a bit of extra fun with my outfits!

DS2 is so super attached to me--he's my baby (although if I say that to him, he protests "I not a baby, I a big boy!"). He cries a lot in the morning because he doesn't want me to leave, so I let him stay with me while I get ready for work. That morning he was hanging out with me in my closet while I was trying to get dressed and I asked him, "What do you want me to wear today?" He said, "Buggy shirt! Buggy shirt!" (He also loves my insect jewelry). So I had to indulge him and wear the Tory Burch beetle shirt.  Normally when I wear this shirt it's more for colder weather and I pair it with the matching TB skirt and a blue jacket, tights, dragonfly heels, etc (see #3). But I wanted to try doing a new more casual version for summer. So no jacket, more casual skirt, and flats, but still highly matchy with the dragonfly necklace and bee bracelet, the turquoise snakeskin on both the skirt and shoes, etc. What do you think, does the more casual summer version work too? (The kids loved riding the Bug's Life rides when we went to Disney last summer).

Second one is kind of ocean inspired with the print of the skirt and summery white shirt and bag. And I like how the hem of the shirt echoes the hem of the skirt. In the summer I like to wear ocean or tropical theme outfits. Makes me feel like I'm at the beach even though I'm still in the office! We haven't seen Finding Dory yet, but I'm sure we will see it with the three kids. I didn't want to call it Finding Nemo because it would need a splash of orange somewhere in the outfit--maybe I'll try that with another outfit. Yes I am rather nerdy with the funny titles.

    Looking good. I especially like outfit 2. Maybe because I tried to get that KK top (in blue) but it was too narrow in the shoulder on me.

    I think it's funny that DS is insistent on your jewelry choice. At least it's not a homemade treasure. Those can be somewhat hard to rock professionally. ;)

    The beetle shirt has a beautiful print. Great outfits and I particularly like the blues in 3.

    The titles to your outfits are very good!

    Sweet outfits! How are you liking the Cayannes?

  • goldenpig replied 1 year ago

    Thanks delurked, Jane and Una! I love the Cayannes! Get lots of compliments on them. I think they really up the game on my outfits, even the casual ones. They are relatively comfy for the heel height, but if I'm going to be doing a lot of all day walking, I still prefer the Ugg flats or the Munro Abbys.

    Delurked, it's funny but sometimes DS2 has really strong opinions on my jewelry. Like today he really wanted me to wear another teal dragonfly pendant and I said no because I was wearing a black and white outfit and it wouldn't go and he was really upset. Then he wanted me to wear a blue and citron necklace. He has very particular taste!

    I like the summer version of the beetle shirt look. No need to go all minimalist just because it's summer.

    What fun! I love insect motifs on clothes, they make such lovely prints in all kinds of styles from strict geometric to more impressionistic, and dragonflies are my favorite. Tell DS2 that other ladies LOVE buggy shirts too!  Very cool that he has such color matching sensibilities..it will be fun for you to see how that evolves as he gets older.

    Love that Karen Kane blouse! I see 27 people have collected it...:-)  I also love the TB one although I have found the TB brand sizing does not come even close to working for me.

    I love your posts. You have such a fun and varied wardrobe. I enjoy your use of color and accessories too.

    Both are totally beautiful--love the matchy-matchy.  You always rock it!

    I love your quirky style GP.
    Starwars, bugs or polar bear, it never looks soppy or infantile.
    It's ladylike and happy.
