Keeping It Casual - 8 (Link Up)

F21 t-shirt (here) & jewelry, A.N.A blouse via JCP (here), Gap jeans & sandals, Croft & Barrow tote via Kohls (here)

My husband and I decided to go out for a late breakfast after church this past Sunday. There is nothing like relaxing over a good cup of coffee (and chocolate croissant) on a Sunday morning. I ate my croissant in under three seconds and sat there staring at my husband's. I told him that he better get rid of it because I was about to grab it from him and I didn't need a second one. Zero self control in the sweets department, people. It's a problem.

I realize that I wore this same floral t-shirt just last week but I couldn't help wearing it again. I thought adding it under the pink blouse gave this outfit a little something extra. I think subtle details, such as this, are great ways to add a little excitement to an outfit. 

I've noticed that lately I tend to wear either loud colors together or just black and white. No in-between, it seems. Do any of you seem to follow a pattern?

Let me also say that I can't seem to find the exact blouse on the JCP website that I am wearing. The link I used looks exactly like the blouse that I am wearing but I only paid $16 for my blouse (web version is $28). There is a 'tall' version of this blouse (not this color) for $16 if you are interested. Did I thoroughly confuse you?

Link up your casual looks below! Please make sure that the post is relevant to this link-up, that you link back to my blog, and that you are a follower of this blog. Have a great day!

* I'm linking up today with Shanna for Random Wednesday.

  10. I love your ability to mix bright colors, it always looks gorgeous!

  11. I can totally relate to that "no control in sweets department" part: I'm just the same! If I see a chocolate or a croissant (don't even get me started on these two paired), I am uncontrollable :) Anyways, you look really gorgeous in bright color, so feel free to continue to wear them together :)

    Have a lovely day!

  14. I think I wear anything! No pattern here. If I could I would most likely wear black and white stripes everyday. :-)

    Who is that girl Mo?

  15. I love how you mixed yellow, pink and orange. They look great.


  16. Hi Amy, I am Ada. How are you? I am loving the Bright & Colorful Outfit you've got on today mixing Colorblock & Prints together. Fabulous Sunglasses, too.

    I love your style & your blog dear. You've got a new fan in me. I already follow you via GFC. Do you have Bloglovin? My Bloglovin link is provided at the end of each post. I will be linking My Top 3 later on tonight. And I will make sure to link up next Wednesday, also for your Wednesday link-up. =)

    Also, this Saturday is My Birthday. Since this year I won't be doing much celebration at home because I am now a mom and my baby is still very young, I figured to have a Blog Birthday Party instead. I invited all of my Readers, Followers and other Stylish Bloggers to participate by styling an outfit of their choice and E-Mail me said outfit no later than Saturday morning at the latest. You are more than welcome to participate. *Hint Hint I Love Dresses*. Thanks so much.

    I hope we stay in touch & we connect. Thanks Again & Have a Great Day, Ada. =)

  17. I love pink and yellow together- reminds me of lemonade in the summer :)

  18. I love bright colors! I feel like I'll get my outfits ready for the week and then realize, oh, I have three outfits with stripes/polka dots/jean jackets/etc. sometimes I rethink it and sometimes I just go with it :)

  19. Love the pink and yellow together. Your outfit is so cheery and happy!

    xo, Yi-chia

  20. I really like your pink blouse! So bright and pretty :)

  21. I love your casual look! Bright colors always bring up the glam factor :)


  22. What a great spring outfit. I love that you can see just a hint of the floral underneath. I feel like I wear stripes like almost every day. I am pretty sure that is because I do. And I keep buying more striped things... it is an addiction.


  23. Keep wearing those brights....they are fab on you, lady!!! I would have gobbled up that chocolate croissant in 2 seconds! ;)

  24. Gorgeous colours!

    I love breakfasts and as I am currently on vacation there is time for a nice, long, late breakfast :-)

    i stay here, love your space

  26. I love doing bright colors together too. And then keeping black and white more classic. I keep seeing such cute things from JCP...who knew! :)

    Those sandals are amazing, by the way. If they are still at Gap, I am getting them!

    Classy with a Kick

  27. Love the pink and yellow!!

  28. Thanks for the comment on my blog today! I really love yours!!

    I had the same thought about colors recently--it's like I'm either loud and proud, or barely there lately.

  29. I love this! I notice that I'm trending toward simple outfits with one statement piece, and lots of contrasting nail polish :)

  30. Cute look! Loving your yellow pants! I need to get some more brights into my wardrobe!


  31. Great color combo!

    xo Jennifer
