$36 (faux) leather & lace

Hi! We actually had some sunshine this morning! Which made me start to break a sweat taking these pics, no lie. But was it nice and toasty warm outside, too? Noooo, of course not!

Oh well! Happy with this, which has quickly become one of my new favorite outfits – and it seriously cost $36.

stripes & sparkles

Why yes, it’s a random post to this neglected little blog!

Last night I met up with my friends Sarah and Amelia (in town from Boston), and it was just SO good to see them. It really made me wish I had more girlfriends in the city. We talk and laugh and get along so easily. Nothing is off limits. I miss them so much. And, as we all said, it’s truly amusing to think that the three of us – once living in a dorm, eating Cheez-Its and watching Days of Our Lives together almost every afternoon – would end up such fabulous city girls 7 years later.

I tried to dress the part of fab city girl anyway!

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.

wear purple for LGBT spirit day!

As you may or may not know, today has been chosen as LGBT Spirit Day, which encourages wearing purple to show solidarity and is described by GLAAD thusly:

Spirit Day honors the teenagers who had taken their own lives in recent weeks. But just as importantly, it’s also a way to show the hundreds of thousands of LGBT youth who face the same pressures and bullying, that there is a vast community of people who support them.

Purple symbolizes ‘spirit’ on the rainbow flag, a symbol for LGBT Pride that was created by Gilbert Baker in 1978.

The recent influx of suicides (or, if not an influx of them occurring, an influx of them identified & reported as such) has been so upsetting, and this is an issue that’s important to me and many of my friends and family, so I definitely wanted to participate. I also have a lot of purple – so I wanted to wear as much as possible without looking like the flying Purple People Eater! Here’s what I ended up with:

What do you think – Purple Power or Purple People Eater?

a-maize-ing ensemble

Oh, hello! It’s been a while. Truth be told, I’ve simply been getting lazy and the dreaded C-word – no, not that, gutter-brains – comfortable. In any case, I’m back (for the moment) with what I wore to a really fun fall excursion this weekend. More than a dozen friends and I went to Richardson Farm in Spring Grove, IL, home of the world’s largest corn maze! We had spectacularly lovely, sunny weather during the afternoon but knew it’d cool off significantly once the sun went down, so it was all about layers.

Wore a cami under this Merona Ultimate Long-Sleeve Tee (in Mint Air) for extra warmth and paired it with a plaid vest by Heritage 1981 I’d never heard of this brand before, which is apparently made by Forever 21, but I got it at Crossroads in Evanston for $17. I’d been searching for the perfect vest for a very long time, and I really loved the fit, comfort, look, and style of this one (it also has a faux fur-lined hood, which I took off this weekend in favor of a hat).

warning: contains violet content

T.G.I.F.!

Just another belted cotton dress today, but it’s hot & humid & oh, did I mention Friday? I had such a difficult time waking up this morning. Anyone else? I just stood in my bathroom leaning against the counter for like 5 straight minutes at one point, blinking. Fact: I need more sleep. However… plenty of time to sleep when I’m dead. ;)

navy baby

Everyone have a good weekend? I did, despite spending 8 hours total on a bus – all to and from Iowa for a barbecue and joint birthday-graduation party with friends old and new. And to wear?

I went with this fun cotton tank dress from Mossimo (size M), brown leggings from No Boundaries, and teal flats from Urban Outfitters. The shoes don’t entirely go, I know, but after those Michael Kors heels on Friday – and with hours of travel in my future – I was all about comfort, plain and simple.
