Pedestrian Crossing

 Happy Friday, and I am sure you guys are as pumped up about the long weekend as I am! I plan on going to the pool as the forecast calls for 90 degrees! Also, I need to catch up on some DVR of the Bachlorette. Well, this is my checked neon J.Crew shirt that I purchased at the thrift store for $5.00 that I had mentioned in my retro maxi skirt post. The size of the shirt is a little larger than I normally wear, but I wasn't letting this shirt go. I thought I could wear it baggier and roll the sleeves. I paired this shirt with this skirt from Forever 21 that I purchased last season. My favorite characteristic of the skirt besides the crochet layering is the full length zipper in the back. I paired it with a pair of  Guess Nude heels (they are becoming one of my favorite shoes) and a great silver balled necklace.
There is always a funny story behind this picture. I am not sure why they have a pedesteian crossing sign here because the speed limit is 55 on this road and the cars travel that and more. So,  I look like I am taking a stroll, but I am saying "Ok. Take it fast, so I don't get run over!"

This shirt incorporates the neon with a nude color.

These are a few pieces that I found available that are similar to the ones in my outfit.  I have worn my silver balled necklace for years and the one I found on Etsy looks like a great necklace at a great price.

Mini- Gingham Shirt- J.Crew ($75.00)

Tiered Crochet Skirt- Urban Outfitters $54.00
THe Gladiator Chunk Bib Necklace by Design by Liz ($68.00)

I found a few nude pumps that would be great through many different seasons. I think all of these are great price points and styles.

Guess Verna Pump ($44.95)

Fergalicious Eileen Pump ($39.95)

L'Atelier London Erin Sandal- ($69.95)
Franco Sarto Sandal ($49.95)

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Do you have any special plans over the long weekend? Which of the nude pumps is your favorite?

Linking up at Marionberry Style.


  1. Love the neon and neutral look! Great outfit :)

  2. You've done the shirt well---I agree that sometimes a great find (and price!) means you have to be open to wearing it differently and often I like a "bigger" look--especially when you've got such a great formfititng skirt to pair with it. I am a HUGE nude show fan and have FIVE different pair---one pair of flats (Steve Madden) and four heel or wedge versions (oddly enough, when I looked, all of them are Nine West). They give such a pretty leg look and just go with everything. My pick from those you showed....probably the "Erin" because of the dainy ankle strap---so feminine but wow! Have a great holiday---you've got me hunting for neon now!

  3. Whoops...guess I moved too quickly. I'm a huge nude SHOE that Freudian?

  4. I LOVE every part of this look, the colour combination is stunning & I love the statement necklace.

    We don't have a long weekend here but I hope you enjoy yours

  5. Lovely skirt!

  6. Carrie, that's a super look and your model long legs are the perfect compliment!
    Love the crosswalk sign in the background!

  7. This is a great skirt! and the yellow makes it pop!

  8. Wow. You'd stop traffic in that skirt (even at 60mph). Have a fashionable and fab weekend,


  9. You have such a fabulous shape, you can wear anything! I love the mix of print and pattern. Fab!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you ...
