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.
