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.

Chicago PRIDE Fest Fashion

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.

green gladiator girl

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! 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!)

may flowers

T.G.I.F. am I right? Has this week felt incredibly long for anyone else? At least it’s sunny and lovely today, unlike the past few dreary, wet days we’ve had in Chicago. To celebrate, some silken flowers shall I sport:

Cropped, textured jacket: Mossimo, silk dress & green tights: Simply Vera.

peacocky potato

I am one moody little potato today. Why a potato? I don’t know, maybe ’cause I’m lazy. It’s appropriate then that I’m wearing a piece of clothing I’ve had since high school, home to moody teenagers the world over. (I wasn’t moody in high school; I had fun. Nonetheless!)

Yes, I have had this peacock shirt since my days at Hononegah High. Christie McDonald (I forget her married name) had the pink version, while I went with the ~au naturel print. I think we even both wore them on the same day and laughed about it in Newspaper once. Oh, high school!

lite rock @ the office

First off, apologies for the drastic differences in photos today – some are grainy, some bright – but it was difficult to quickly figure out settings this morning thanks to the thunderstorm. April showers, anyone?

I feel like this is kind of… rocker lite @ the office. It’s still put together with very simple basics, but each extra element has just a little bit of kick to it.

The basics:
Brown top: Gap Favorite V-neck tee (size S – love these, and they’re on sale online right now), jeans: Old Navy ‘Flirt‘ fit (it’s a nice mid-rise) bootcut, I believe.

simple sweater dress

It’s been a heckuva week, no? Anyone else? Just me? Ok then.

That said, I went super simple this Friday in a grey & purple striped sweater dress by JJ Basics from Bergner’s (size XL, I believe – in Juniors fit) and Mossimo jeans from Target.
