Matching my mug




Necklace: Express | Top: J Crew Factory | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Pants: Express (option, option)  | Flats: Halogen (other colors here)

As I was walking out the door to snap pics of this outfit, I couldn't resist grabbing my Alice + Olivia tutu mug. I've had her since the holidays, and she's my most favorite mug ever. (I call her Tootsie.) Every time I wear anything black and white, people ask me if I've purposely matched my mug. The answer is always no - it's merely a coincidence. Although, I'm quite jealous of Tootsie. I've been on the hunt for my perfect tutu/tulle skirt, and I just can't find one that isn't midi length. So, if any of you see some good options out there (that aren't a trillion dollars), let me know!

    1. Thank you! I didn't know how I would feel about a chambray popover, but the fit is so easy, I was amazed how much I loved it!

  2. I wasn't sure about that top but I love it on you and I love it with the maroon jeans. That mug is so cute. Who knew that mugs are now accessories. I also like tulle skirts but I just can't pull that off. I hope you find one because I'm sure you will style it flawlessly.

    1. They are great! I wish Express would come out with their colored skinnies again! I bought them in this color and more of a rust red color, though honestly, they're identical. I wear them so much, I wish I had bought more colors!

  5. Totally love this color combination. If I hadn't just worn my chambray shirt yesterday I'd be wearing it today paired with maroon jeans like that. And I love how you have a name for everything!!! About the tulle skirt- have you tried looking at the children's section anywhere? You might be surprised....

  6. You look charming in this outfit, I adore combo of jeans-like (or it's jeans?) blouse and colorful pants. And your flats are cute too!

  13. What a cute mug! Love how it coordinates with your shoes, even if you didn't plan it. Lol! Super cute outfit, the cranberry jeans look great with that top. Cute necklace too! I've also been on the lookout for a cute tulle skirt but have yet to find one I love. I've seen several tutorials to DIY one though so I've considered that option, I'm sure you could as well.

    1. I am definitely way not crafty (or patient enough) to make my own! It would make my life easier though if that weren't the case!

  15. Everything about this outfit is cute (including the mug). I really like those shoes by the way, I click on the image and they don't have them :(. Also I have to say that great minds think alike, I have been looking for a tulle skirt for a while now, and they are still escaping my gasp...sigh.

  19. This is such a cute post! Love the mug and your look! I follow this shop Space 46 Boutique. They sell tulle skirts in all sizes and some of them are under $100. I think that is a reasonable price for a handmade item! Here is their website: www.space46boutique.com
