Outfit Highlight: 15 Shades of Blue

Did I mention blue is one of my favorite colors? Just thought I’d reiterate it in case you hadn’t noticed. I kept it casual and monochromatic once again over this past weekend. I don’t know how many shades of blue you’ll find in this outfit but I figure there are at least fifteen. It’s hard to tell, but the Madewell chambray shirt alone has at least four shades of blue.

My family and I went on a short weekend getaway to Great Wolf Lodge, a water park resort, to take advantage of the girls’ mid-winter break. I’m not gonna lie, it’s not my first choice for weekend getaways. I don’t see the point of going to the pool or a water park, for that matter, if you can’t get a tan. But the girls had a blast so I guess it was worth it. I intended to take advantage of the change of scenery and work on my new outfit post from there but when we got there I realized that I had forgotten to bring the camera cable to download the pictures from the camera to my laptop. Rookie mistake…I’m still learning.

I didn’t realize until after I put this outfit together that almost everything I had on was from the Gap. I feel like I can always count on the Gap for comfy, casual yet chic clothes that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. I can’t say enough about my go-to Always Skinny jeans that I have featured several times before (here and here). I love the sequin-stripe tee, it’s casual with a bit of sparkle. I added the moto jacket and the cozy plaid scarf to complete the look.

Today’s natural high: Never expected to find a local Vietnamese restaurant during our stay at Great Wolf Lodge, but we did and the food was pretty good. It was a nice break from the burger and fries and fast food restaurants.





Here’s what made the weekend getaway totally worth it.
