Ribbon tank & Kimono cardigan

This weekend has been pretty darn busy. I kicked start it by doing a 5k charity walk Saturday morning for NAMI (National Association for Mental Illness) where I raised $155. Then because it was hot and because I stupidly didn't drink enough water, I was dehydrated with a headache and pretty nauseated for several hours afterwards. I rested while waiting for S to finish up with all her volunteering commitments (I need to be more like her!) and originally she was going to meet up down where I live, but she finished so late and had had such a long day I drove to the Island to meet up with her instead. We ate dinner together and then went back to her condo for some girl talk!

That was the end of Saturday and I woke up extremely early on Sunday because I guess I'm just used to it. I had agreed to have beef noodle soup with W, a guy I had dated a while back but am still friends with. He recently moved into town and I had yet to hangout with him. We had a good time, caught up, and I got to see his new digs. His place is really nice and he seems quite settled in! Below is what I wore for lunch today and the top I wore the previous night with S. Still need to see A, a fellow co-res, for our "burger" time and then picking D up at the airport. What a busy, fun weekend!

I recently picked up the ribbon tank from J.Crew for $10 from $34.50, which isn't a bad deal. I got it in XS and I typically wear a 0/XS and it fits me TTS. The only problems with the tank is that it's on the long size if you're petite and that the ribbon detail in the front is delicate and there's already a slight strain to the front of the white when I tried to remove a minor stain. Now that I know, I'll be more careful, but too late for the little run I caused by trying to remove it. Of course, for $10 with the details shown below, it's a lovely tank for layering and for wearing alone.

My favorite part of this outfit (other than my recurring fave with my PS1) is the cardigan from Splendid. I find it unique, soft, and comfy! I love the way it drapes and how it's so casually chic. The large gray rugby stripes with the kimono design make it so FUN! It's one of my favorite cardigans and I love to wear it when I can. It's basically the perfect weather now since outside I don't need it with how hot, humid it is down here, but as soon as I go inside it's chilly because of the A/C. 

The last part of the outfit that hasn't been featured before is the yellow flipflop/sandals from Lucky Brand. These are pretty comfy despite all the straps and the mustard yellow is a nice pop of color. My toenails unfortunately don't go with the outfit, but I'm really loving Turquoise and Caicos by Essie!

Happy Sunday!
