Lost and Found

bobby3bobby1bobby2bobby6bobby5



Pants? Zara Shirt? Industry, Winners Shoes? Coach, Winner Belt and clutch? Thrifted Bracelets? Crazy lady at The Ex... yes, way cooler than friendship bracelets...


Last weekend I would have viewed this outfit as a gift. This weekend I saw this outfit as comfortable and cute and Matt saw it as classy. Yes, the couple who alliterates together (cute, comfortable and classy...), stays together...
You see, last weekend I was running on two weeks of surviving off one elastic and two bobby pins... So, if I had known that these pants had one bobby pin in its pockets and this clutch had two hidden in its depths, it would have been like Christmas morning. But by the time I found those little treasures, Matt, Bec, Kyle, Stella (husband, 3 cats) and I had already had a family meeting and decided to purchase a new pack of bobby pins. Today, I went all out and put at least 10 pins in my hair. I took the bobby pins I found in my outfit and scattered them around the house... I hope I find them back in a two months when I really need them.

Love your blouse! The pants are great with them as well. I also love finding bobby pins around my house. They're sneaky little buggers.

I am having the exact same bobby pin issue! I swear they jump out of my hair and just disappear. Your hair looks really cute in that style!

Exquisite color blocking and photography.

Wow! Gorgeous outfit. I love the billowy blouse and sleek pants...and in bright colors! You look ready to go out and have a fun time.

There must be a place on earth where all the bobby pins go, I've lost so many I could sell them back to the factory and be rich, love that color of the top, so cheerful!

Wow, girl! This look is fabulous! You look lovely. And yes, the bracelets are WAYY cooler (and classier) than friendship bracelets.

Are those horse heads on the clutch?

Bobby pin hide and seek! Such a clever idea :) I'm currently on my last 10 bobby pins, I keep on leaving them in the cup holder of my boyfriends car for the purposes of "just in case."

I love the colours and general 80s-ness of your outfit and makeup (lippy!) - and I have been WONDERING what's been going on with your hair . . ;)

Please may I? said...

For fear of sounding like everyone else, that blouse is divine! Love, love, love the colour. Yes it looks like a very classy outfit.

As for hair grips, oh my! I can never find any.. Never sure if my daugther steals them or if the house eats them!

Your hair looks fab too.

Yay for bobby pins!

Stella said...

Loving the top's color and the clutch is so cute. And, those bracelets from the Crazy Lady at the Ex...I pine for them. Pine!

I had a hair accessory crisis too..I literally had them all over the place (office, car, bathroom, purse, guest bedroom), until I buckled down, got a basket and put them all in one place. I put all the bobby pins in a box too, bc I was never able to find them when I needed them. :|

Kate said...

THAT BLOUSE! Is amazing! The color is just perfecto!

briannelee said...

Love the color of your top!

Also, love the clutch :)

HollyDolly said...

And I always have my bobby pins scattered all around the house. I'm not sure how it happens, really.

Dor said...

Looking good, classy indeed! I myself just opened a pack of pins sunday morning.I was looking under the couch and in purses for just ONE PIN!...Then I remembered, I had a pack hidden away for such an emergency. It was a good day.

Emma said...

That's a really cute hairstyle! And the outfit is graet too ;)

Shannon said...

Those pants look great!! I love the pleats!!

Taimi said...

Every once in awhile my boyfriend has a small mental breakdown about the army of bobby pins/elastics that end up all over our apartment (car, bed, pantry, his sweatshirt pockets, couch, floor). The joys of living with a girl!

Vanessa, Take only Memories said...

Great color shirt! I don#t think I could pull that off but you look fabulous!

Leah said...

Beauty hairdo. Hooray for finding bobby pins, just not soon enough I guess.

The blouse with those trousers are gorgeous! Love the bright colours!

I can never find kirby grips when I need them. Hair accessories seem to get eaten by my carpet!

These pictures are beautiful! I love how you did your hair, and the top goes well with your complexion.

Think Twice Style said...

I love love love this color combination! It's so sharp looking and I love the flow of your blouse!

jacquelyn | lark + linen said...

this outfit is great!
I have the same problem with bobby pins. I somehow always manage to have matching socks out of the dryer, but my bobby pins disappear on the regular!

Erin said...

Those ten bobby pins? Totally worth it. Your hair looks amazing!

kelsey said...

eric is always so annoyed when he finds my bobby pins all over the house! i don't think he'll ever let me buy a new pack...

megannielsen said...

you are really rocking the colour blocking recently!! I absolutely love this outfit! you look amazing hun

The Fashionista's said...

I am in love with this colour combination. You look so gorgeous!

Emily said...

Seriously what is that? I can't ever find bobby pins until I buy new ones. The best place I've ever found them is wedged in the holes of the washer after a night out. Some girls throw lipstick in their back pockets, I throw bobby pins.

Linley said...

this color combo is so pretty! love this look!

April said...

The color of that blouse is BEAUTIFUL! Looks great paired with the blue pants!

Lisa - Archives Vintage said...

is that a HORSE CLUTCH?!!!?! if so, if you ever decide to part ways with it....you can send it my way. kthx.

two birds said...

bobby pins in my house are like socks in the dryer. i have no idea where they all go. i love it that you rehid the three you found! (great idea) you look lovely in this outfit...i adore these pants!

Macy Young said...

LOVE the color combo here! It looks great on you!

gorgeous!! I am in love with that blouse. So pretty :)

Karla said...

I'm really loving this neon lime green color with navy blue! So classy.

I hear ya, I'm always losing all my hair ties. When I get a new pack it feels awesome. Ties for everybody! I take them everywhere, put them everywhere and then after a couple of days, I'm left with TWO. I treasure them and fight with my cats for them until I break down and buy another pack. Then the vicious cycle continues. So when I happen to need one and find it in the most unlikeliest of places, I do a little happy dance.

Awesome outfit!

Nessbow said...

It's like finding buried treasure when I turn out a rogue bobby pin from the depths of my handbag. I don't know what happens to all of them, perhaps my hair eats them during the day?

Danielle Celeste Couture said...

great colors. and I know what you mean about bobby pins.

The Missus said...

Love this outfit! navy and yellow/lime are perfect together. I love the way you paired the delicate blouse with casual trousers.

lisa said...

love your hair. love the color combo. and i thought i was the only one who scatters things in hopes of finding them later.
