Hello! Is everyone feeling jolly? I certainly was last night.
Sorry for the semi-blurry pic. I was especially jolly that I got this dress and the necklace for a total of $20 at Forever 21. That place has a lot of crap, let’s be honest; but it’s also big enough to merit wandering around now and then because you just might get lucky.
Hey there! I’m off to a pumpkin-carving party (it’s B.Y.O.P.), so I’ve gotta make this quick, but here’s what I’m wearing:
Festive but hopefully not over-the-top!
You’ve seen this dress before. A few times.
Simply Vera, size 8 – and while I love this dress (and most Simply Vera stuff), and it makes me feel great, it’s not the point of this post.
TGIF, am I right?
Super simple look today, but one I haven’t featured, so posting anyway – although there is really something to be said for simple clothes that are easy to wear and just make you feel good.
Good morning! Tough to say what’s good about it, though, as a) it’s Monday, b) it’s a glum day, and c) I was wide awake at 2:30 am and tossed and turned for a good while after that. Then I forgot my coffee at home and felt stabby on the ridiculously stop-n-go (emphasis on the stop) CTA. As my beloved friend Kate would say, there is way too much Monday in today!
But whatever, at least I’m having a little fun.
I feel like this is, quite obviously, the sister outfit to my last post – but while that girl was the preppy cheerleader, this one is the boho art student. Or something.
Loved Jessica Schroeder’s turban-style headscarf tutorial, and I thought it’d be perfect in helping disguise my sickness on a quick jaunt to the Target Starbucks for some passion tea lemonade. That’s good for a sore throat, right?
Well, turns out I don’t have quite the right scarves just yet – this one is very thin and small, though just barely long enough – but it’s still kinda cute.
Be nice; I’m sick & makeup-less. (Shades: ModCloth.)
And now, to Starbucks! I will not wander Target, I will not wander Target, I will not wander Target…

Celebrating their birth year of 1970, my family had a ’70s-themed 40th birthday party for my Aunt Jackie and Uncle Jon yesterday. I tried to dress semi-appropriately!
Sorry for the weird lighting here. Just pretend it’s psychedelic or something.
Oh my goodness, I am straight exhausted – no pun intended! – but I wanted to get this post up. Pride was such a great experience. I have a lot of gay friends, and it was just really fun to celebrate the community and be a part of such a huge party all about unity and inclusion. I wish it felt this way every day!
As for my own outfit, please note: it is meant to be ridiculous. Because Pride fashions are largely about being flashy and sassy.
Strapless sun dress: Mossimo – so comfy & cute and in a variety of colors (was also $5.00 cheaper in store when I got mine). I felt very Carrie Bradshaw in this – she wore a lot of those tube top-ish dresses, and the big ol’ flower on my head was also very Carrie. But I enjoyed being ridiculous. And the back of this dress is so fun.
Hello there! In the days since my last post, I have been mourning LOST, of course – but the blow was cushioned tremendously when I found out I WON the LOST Complete Series set from WeLoveLost.com! Gaaah, I’m so happy! I’ve also been busy and thus crazy-tired – to the point that I went to sleep at 8:00 pm last night! (It was still light out!) And yet, even with 11 hours of sleep, I felt like crap (twitchy eye ALL day) and look tiiired today. Blah!
At least I was bright & cheery-looking:
You’ve seen this dress before, and I didn’t do much with it today (that’s another reason I haven’t posted much this week – wearing a lot of simple dresses that I’ve blogged before), but the accessories are still fun. Also: wow, you can totally see the difference in pics I take before I leave for the day and those I take after I come home from a day at work. (Sssh, pretend it’s awesome!)
Second in my Ladies of LOST series: Claire.
Needless to say, there will be *SPOILERS* ahead! I would highly recommend NOT reading further if you’re not caught up on the series. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Squirrel baby welcomes you in…
