cheap & cute

No, the title of this post does not refer to me – how dare you insinuate I am a cheap date?! – but rather accessories. Behold:

I saw a woman on the good ol’ 36 bus wearing a cute purple hate with a bow on it, so I complimented her. She said “Payless!” with a kind of surprised expression that mirrored my own. So of course I had to stop, and I ended up finding what I believe is the same one in black – and only $12.99.

owl be home for christmas

Oh hey, poor little neglected blog! I haven’t forgotten you. I have simply gotten way too boring and comfortable with my clothing lately. It’s been lots of sweaters and jeans, which just didn’t seem worth posting.

But my brand new owl earmuffs – owlmuffs, if you will – are definitely worth a look. Let me give you a better view.

pumpkin carving purr-fection

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!

layers, continued

I’m sort of crossing my fingers that fall is now officially here to stay, as that was another reason I think I’ve been off my blogging game lately (not dressing appropriately for the weather) and haven’t posted much, but here’s another simple, layered look.

Since layering this Merona dress to act as a skirt worked well the first time (what is that hair? oh right, the result of being impulsive), I tried it again. Honestly, I think I like it better as a skirt than as a dress.

rainy days & fundays

I feel like half my entries are about the unpredictable Midwest weather, but since it affects what you wear, it’s a necessary evil. Lately Chicago has gone from warm & summery to cold, back and forth all week. It’s not really anything out of the ordinary – fairly typical for the autumn transition, in fact – but sometimes I feel like I just can’t seem to get it right!

Anyway, today’s another rainy one – the sound of raindrops was so nice to wake up to… and, let’s face it, roll over and sleep a couple more hours. But now I’m up and off to meet friends for Easy A.

I’m trying to show you my rainboots (and failing). Top: Mossimo boyfriend tee (size S) from Target, jeans: Calvin Klein (size 10), hat: Target.

spotted & striped gap goodies

After making at least 3 trips to Gap to find enough stuff worthy of spending my 50%-off Groupon on, last night I hit the gold mine. Or the navy mine, as it were.

This felt like it came together really effortlessly, much more so than yesterday.

modcloth avocado orchard dress

Those of you who follow me on Twitter got a little sneak peek at this yesterday. A while back, I was browsing ModCloth, like ya do, lusting after many a lovely frock (also like ya do), when I came across the Avocado Orchard Dress. I got weak in the knees at the mere sight of it! The cut! That belt! Those colors! But it was OUT OF STOCK! So I signed up for their handy “Alert me when this is back in stock” feature, figured it would never be back in stock, and promptly forgot about it. Then I got an email with the following subject line:

Avocado Orchard Dress – Hurry, it’s back in stock!


Don’t you love it? :)
