When life gives you naranjas

By dusanabotswana On January 30th, 2012

I was thinking about how posting outfit pictures, while certainly sometimes tricky during the week, can definitely be easier than posting about the rest of life, or more interesting at least. And then I get to thinking, “how sad that the most interesting part of my day was my outfit.” I get especially upset about this when it’s on weekends, and this was one of those weekends- Friday evening we got groceries, Saturday we ran errands all day, and I cleaned out and organized our house, preparing for our new exchange student’s arrival in a few days, and then Sunday I mostly spent working on my fair trade shop, Mitla Moda.

I guess that’s life sometimes though, and working hard doesn’t usually look too interesting in pictures, but at least I feel good about getting work done and tackling our hall closets/shed. Still a bit more work to come, but next weekend I should be able to decorate to start loving the space we live in (which was one of my resolutions).

So here’s not a glimpse into my life, but an outfit I enjoyed styling at least. I remixed The Chickadee in Naranja, which my beautiful friend Lizzy owns and styled up in this post in the desert.



Oh and I gave myself bangs! They still aren’t even, my mom tried to fix them but crooked cutting runs in the family. Isn’t it strange though how I don’t look like myself at all? I’m happy that whenever I’m not feeling it I can just pin them up.


Newest 25-cent addition: cut these pants into shorts. Don’t I look so 90’s with these and my bangs?



Last weekend we picked naranjas, & this weekend my dad gave us some from his tree!

This is what snow angels in Phoenix look like, in case you were wondering.


Outfit details: shorts- jeans I cut, thrifted (25 cents); tights- hand-me-downs, sweater- thrifed; boots- secondhand Etienne Agner via Ebay; belt- thrifed by hubs for me; cowl- handmade by coworker; top- The Chickadee, in my shop here.

Did you get to do anything fun this weekend? Do you always make time for some fun activities on weekends or sometimes just want to relax? (You can guess which is all I wanted to do this weekend!)

    Haha, I love the snow angels in Phoenix. I cut my own bangs way more crookedly than that last year! And ugh, I hate weekends that, however productive, are not very exciting… I think I’ve got one of those lined up this week as well. : (

    Beautiful top. Colors look fab on you. Bangs are a cute totally new look. Snow Angel in Phx—what a hoot–but so creative–who would have thought?!!

    LOVE this little knit scarf– adorable with the blouse and the boots. Your travels look delicious, you have me green with envy! (Although if your scarf is any proof, green is just fine is the perfect color…)

    I’m following you, love your style!
