Kris Allen likes my shirt.

WELL, HELLO! Bet you didn’t expect to see a post here. To be truthful, I didn’t either.

In the year+ since I last posted, I: quit my job in Chicago, started dating someone, moved to New York City, tried to make it for a few months, ran out of money, moved back home to Illinois, broke up, became a walking cliché (college graduate English/women’s studies major living in her parents’ basement and working as a Starbucks barista – naturally), got asked to be in two weddings (one as a bridesmaid, one as the maid of honor), quit my job at Starbucks, started working as a vintner’s assistant and social media manager at a winery, got back together with my boyfriend, and, apparently, grew my hair out a bit longer than the kicky bob I was last sporting.

How’ve you been?

Annnnyway. I decided to post because yesterday I loved my outfit, and I wanted to share. So I dusted off my embarrassing, self-indulgent little corner of the internet. For y’all. Because I love y’all.

Also I’m pretty much obsessed with everything I’m wearing.

~Controversial French Hen sweater: J. Crew
Raisin corduroy skirt: LOFT (I got it in mustard too – they were 40% off.)
Mulberry ankle boot: Seychelles (via Amazon… via Endless – apparently they’ve merged! which means I had another coupon code.)

power cord

Still adjusting to the new hair – I’m not 100% sold on it – and tried quite a few options over this dress this morning, but ultimately I settled on some autumn-approved corduroy.

Jacket: Ann Taylor Loft (size 6).

buttoned banana

Nope, no yellow here. I misled you. SHAME, SHAME!

But this buttoned sweater (size M) is by Banana Republic. (Get it??) And it’s cashmere. Loved the colors, the style, the buttons – and the price: only $17 at Crossroads!

Note to Evanston staff: try being friendlier and actually putting people’s clothes in the bag before brushing them off. Last I checked, leaving their clothes in a pile on the counter while you talk over them to the next customer is bad service.

floral tank, cardi & cords

Just the basics today, folks:

These may be a bit more autumn-like colors, but with the weather as bipolar as it is, I don’t mind so much. Maroon cords: Ann Taylor Loft (size 12), sequin-trimmed oatmeal cardigan: Express (size M).

everyday chic

Having made a trip to Michigan this weekend to see the fam and celebrate my Aunt Cheryl’s 50th birthday, I ended up coming back with, well, about 2/3s of this ensemble:

I feel like this is such an easy, chic everyday look. As Stacy and Clinton say, a jacket is the easiest & fastest way to pull an outfit together (not to mention slim & streamline your body). And I actually got 1/3 of this at CostCo. No joke. You are not the only one in shock & disbelief!

I think some people would definitely say “Yikes!” to these colors, but not me. I love ’em. And after yesterday’s dress & tights, I wasn’t messin’ around – I needed the warmth of a turtleneck and cords, mhmm!
