happy holidays! & happy 1st birthday to hlask!

With the craziness of the holidays, I haven’t been around much again – oops! Bad blogger! Hope everyone had a lovely time with friends and family. I sure did.

Here I am on the porch with our second Christmas tree (there were 3 in the house), wearing a beautiful ecru (basically white) sweater from White House Black Market (which doesn’t seem to photograph as lovely as it really is), Target jeggings, and Bandolino leather boots.

dress & necklace for $20 (total)

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.

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!

bachelorette beauties

Well! The you-pick-what-I-wear poll was a fun little experiment. I really did plan on wearing what YOU chose; however, I should’ve put a time frame on the poll. I feel bad that I didn’t end up in the winning look, but by the time I had to get dressed & going, there was a 3-way tie! It was between the zebra top & skinnies, the black ruffle dress, and the deep-V dress with medallion accents. So I simply had to just pick one.

I ended up choosing…

frisky friday

Today’s post is almost identical to a previous one, but I simply love this dress. It feels so frisky and was just $11 – can you beat that?

Knit dress: AB Studio (size M) from Kohl’s. Switched it up with some purple Simply Vera tights (also Kohl’s) this time instead of black ones. And I’ve had this black, rhinestone-zippered cardigan since high school. Don’t know who it’s by, as I ripped the tag out because it was an XL, and I felt embarrassed or something. So silly. I should’ve been more embarrassed that I bought something from Gadzooks.

leafy green

This is kind of a fun, layered look:

Textured, metallic-sheen, cropped jacket: Mossimo; black leggings: hmm… TJ Maxx maybe; black leather boots: Bandolino; green V-neck boyfriend tee (oh, the irony!): also Mossimo (size S – I love these; so soft & comfy), over Merona smocked waist dress (featured previously here). Nope, that’s not a skirt – as you can see the pattern peeping out of the V-neck – but I think this is an easy way to increase your wardrobe choices.

anthro trickery?

I think I was subconsciously influenced by my new (sale!) Anthropologie quilt when I put this outfit together:

Because for some reason I thought the orange and green looked ok together, but now I’m not entirely sure what I was thinking.
