count the ways: double point earrings

these earrings. these are the earrings i posted about back here a couple of weeks ago. and back then i was really excited about them – i didn’t even have them yet, and i was ridiculously excited.

well, let me tell you, my love has not waned. there are so many ways to wear these earrings that it’s a challenge to figure out how i’m going to wear them each day.

and yes, i said each day. each and every day. because that is how often i’ve worn them since they came. every.single.day.

summer 10 x 10: days 7 & 8

for these last couple of 10×10 outfits i’m going to double up on posts mostly because i want to move on to a couple of different things next week – including a recap of the whole challenge.

these two outfits were both very simple and easy, which is kind of my jam in the summer, especially since it has been so stinkin’ hot as of late. {which is a lot of fun when you’re a/c is on its last legs} but it has also shown me that i can get away with not putting a ton of thought into my clothes, as long as there’s a little pop of interest somewhere.

summer 10 x 10: day 6

i kind of cheated on tuesday {day 5} because i went to yoga class in the morning and then the kids had swim lessons right after that so i didn’t really get dressed until the afternoon.

summer 10 x 10: day 4

on monday {day 4} the kids and i had lunch at my mother-i-l’s house with her and gran. after our normal morning at the gym, this was a welcome change for the kids – especially since they got to have chicken nuggets for lunch.

this was a great outfit for being a little dressed up, but still very comfortable.

summer 10 x 10: day 3

on day 3 we rode our bikes to church and did a bunch of little things around the house to get ready for the week. and it’s a very good thing i had just seen a photo about how women in europe bike around everywhere and still look cute. otherwise the whole biking thing may have totally de-railed my 10×10 plans.
