What I Wore: Navy Dots & Olive


Cue dramatic lighting! Haha. I took these pictures pretty late in the day compared to when I normally shoot, and the light was all slanty and golden. Yes, I know – that’s why photographers call it the golden hour. I’ve just usually got something else on my plate at that time of day (literally or figuratively). Anyway, I like how they turned out. And I like this outfit. The cami is one of my favorites, and the skirt is so soft. Love them.

This outfit almost didn’t happen, because when I put the skirt on (on Monday) I noticed that a grease spot from cooking hadn’t come out in the wash. So I took to the Google, and learned a handy tip: dish soap + grease spot on clothing = gone! Seriously. So simple, yet I probably wouldn’t have thought of it. Just rub some dish soap in/around the stain, rinse, and then put in the washer like normal. Ta-da! I actually wore this same outfit but with a grey skirt on Monday since the green one was being de-greased. What? Like you don’t do that.

Yesterday was coding frenzy for a client followed by a much-needed happy hour. I got to meet up with Kelly and Melissa for the first time, and tried a prickly pear margarita for the first time. Both experiences were a plus. 🙂 And when I got home, I found out that Ian doesn’t have to do late shift the rest of the week – he’s back to normal today! Which means date night is on for tonight, woohoo!

    1. Thank you! And yes, that’s when I picked up this necklace, at the TxSC prom – I saw it and immediately knew I had to get it. It’s one of my favorites now. 🙂

  1. Cute and comfy outfit, I like your jewelry 🙂 thnx for sharing the tip on grease and clothes..dont we learn something new everyday?

  2. One stain-removing trick I heard that was so obvious I had to facepalm is this: remove makeup stains from the collar of shirts using eye makeup remover. Just dab it over the stain and then wash as normal. Magic, and yet so obvious I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself.

  3. what a great casual look, love the vest top!Thanks so much for linking up to Passion For Fashion, i hope to see you tomorrow! xx
