Dishonest and Paisley…

You know that saying “honesty is the best policy…”  I walked into American Eagle at the recommendation of a friend to try on their white skinny jeans when I saw these paisley jeggings hanging on what was most likely a “Holds” bar towards the back of the store.  I hadn’t seen any quite like them before and decided that since there was no name attached to them (yet) that it was no big deal if I just slipped them off of their hanger and tried them on.  A few minutes later they were purchased and walking out of the store in my shopping bag and have been paired up with multiple items from my closet all summer long.  I do feel bad for the person I snagged them away from but not enough that I would have left that store without them.  I wore this ensemble out to dinner with friends from out of town. The top also seen here has been a favorite this season and has literally more than paid for itself in wear since I got it off the clearance rack.  I opted for flat gold ballet flats since walking on the streets of downtown Portland is not comfortable in heels- especially for a low key evening. 
Tomorrow is my munchkins first day of school…goodbye for now Summer.  We’ll always have Paisley!
What has been your favorite thing to wear this summer??


  1. Hmmm, I wonder who that friends was who gave you such a great recommendation??? Lol! Love the Paisley print on those jeans. And hopefully the shopping fairies will forgive you. ;)
