Add a Little Sparkle

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fabulous Father's Day weekend. We definitely did! I have been busy putting my house back in order, we got new hardwood floors, which I love! But besides working on that, I have been working on painting a few pieces of furniture. One, I will be showing on Wednesday, and give you a few tips I use when painting furniture. I should be diligently working on a college class that is due by the end of this month, but I'll get it done. The other day, when I was working on my class with my friend (yeah right), we were discussing  whether we would consider ourselves introverts or extroverts. We both agreed that we are extroverts- I love being around friends, laughing, having a good time, maybe playing a practical joke or two. I definitely think there are levels of extroverts though because sometimes I need my alone time, time to do "my" thing. Well, for Father's Day we went out to eat and this is what I wore. I paired these green striped Madewell shorts with this chambray shirt. To add a little of sparkle, I wore my Bp 'Madison' sequin shoes. I had actually bought a pair of the Tom's sequin slip-on shoes last fall, and never had worn them. I would try them on and put them back. That's why I love Nordstrom, they took them back and I exchanged them with these and I feel these are more practical for me.

Would you consider yourself more of an introvert or extrovert? Or do you consider yourself a little of both like me.

  1. Love those kicks! I have found that as I age I am becoming more of an introvert. Or maybe I have created an environment that I don't want to leave very often, but in any case, I like being home and love my time alone to dream.

  3. Love those sparkly shoes - and I love Nordies too for their impeccable customer service. I am def. an introvert, who has learned how to behave in the extrovert world. Sounds like you are a good balance!

    1. Yes, Nordies is awesome. I love that outlook of an introvert in a extrovert world. That is so true with everyone on the go always.

  4. Ooh I really love those sparkly loafers! I'm much more of an introvert, but I do like hanging out with close friends. I tend to be shy around new people.

  5. Nordies is the bomb (a technical term, ahem) as is your outfit. I love those shorts and to pair it with classic loafers and chambray is "jean-ius". The sparkle of the shoes is perfect- showing that you appreciate a good classic without falling prey to boredom. Very visible!

    I'm a mix of introvert and extrovert- but I get my "charge" in being alone, and feel drained when around people. As much as I love them, they wear me out.

  10. Very, very cute look Carrie - the shorts look amazing with your legs (love the stripes!) Plus the flats are just tooooo sparkly and pretty!!

    Oh and I'm somewhere in between an intro and extrovert... my family, friends and work colleagues would say extrovert without hesitation, but strangers would say introvert :))
