Yesterday was Friday, and it’s BEAUTIFUL! A little humid, but nothing a little tank top (actually this one’s a topslip) can’t help me handle. Time for another Show-Me-Your-Mumu day:
By now, you know I’m a MumuManiac! Mumu’s never hug or constrict, they FLOW. I paired this one with a Vintage Escada belt, and instant faux-peplum look!
Although the print is reminiscent of a dainty vintage teacup, I paired it with some accessories that make me feel just a little exotic. Like I’m having some English tea in the WILD. Feather earrings, and a crazy kewl necklace – makes it feel just a tad exotic, don’t you think?
The deets that make the outfit:
I wore these shoes last year on my wedding day, and now, almost a year later, they make another appearance, and they’re just as lovely:
AND, these little Kokoon Girlie Leggings – not only ADORBS, but comfy and TOTALLY amazing! This pair is going on 3 years old, and they still look and feel just as great as they did the first time I wore them. I love them so much, I have them in every color they come in. They are a local, independent brand, made in Minneapolis. I found them at a GREAT little Boutique called Local Motion in uptown. They have a great mix of local, independent designers as well as well-known national names that the other boutiques don’t carry. AND, it’s also the same place where I found this AMAZINGLY KEWL one-of-a-kind necklace that I paired in this outfit:
The necklace has chunky vintage wood beads, hand made ceramic beads, chunky semi-precious stones – all one-of-a-kind pieces in and of themselves, but then all placed into this necklace. So utterly A.MAZ.ING. I can’t remember the name of the designer, but it was another local jewelry artist. Barb, the owner of Local Motion, has a great eye for really unique and beautiful items – and that’s what you’ll find in her store. If you’re in Minneapolis – visit her and tell her I sent you!
The Show-Me-Your-Mumu top was purchased at Covered in Uptown – where all my mumu’s are purchased! AND, if you’re thinking, I need to stop by there, DO IT TODAY – I just saw on their Facebook that they are having 20% off all weekend long! YAHOO!
What I’m Wearing:
Show-Me-Your-Mumu (SMYM) TopSlip in Teacup brown // Kokoon Girlie Legging in white // Vintage Escada white belt // Seychelles off-white pumps similar here // one of a kind chunky-beaded necklace // Off-white aviator sunglasses from Forever21 // Michael Kors White Polyurethane and Goldtone Mixed Metal watch // Coral circle ring purchased from MAX’s in St Louis Park, MN – designer unknown // custom made gold bangle bracelet // m.BridgetDesigns feather earrings // vintage red knot leather wristlet // Ikat stretch bracelet similar here //
Another reason I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Show-Me-Your-Mumu topslip is that it can be worn so many different ways. You can wear it with a belt, wear it without a belt, tuck it in, leave it out, wear it as a minidress, put a shirt on underneath it, wear it without a shirt – SOOO many ways for SOOO many A.MAZ.ING looks!
Have an A.MAZ.ING weekend!
PS – I’m TOTALLY bananas over this Show Me Your Mumu topslip!!
