Sometimes when I’m bored, I go to Target. Terrible habit. But it’s a 5-minute walk from my apartment! So last night, when my plans were in flux, I walked in for no reason and walked out $93 poorer. Oops.
But I also walked out with this little number:
Draped Double Layer Tank Dress (Grey/Pebble): Mossimo (size M). It mystified me on the hanger, what with its curious double layer/tank lining, but trying it on was a pleasant surprise – especially considering the stripes… cuz that’s a lotta stripes.
What’s this, another blog post? To think I used to do it nearly every day… but summer is a busy time. The last week or so has been a blur – but a fun, sunny, musical blur (U2! pool party! shopping! grilling!), so I’m definitely not complaining.
As a thanks for hooking her up with U2 tickets, my friend Andrea bought me this dress from H&M when we were walking around State St. the day after the concert:
Such a fun print and color palette, right? The best part? It was $15.
Today’s outfit is nothing special – sweater from American Eagle, Mossimo jeggings *shudder* from Target – but today’s post is not about the clothes. No, today’s post is about the shoes.
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!
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).
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.
What a week it’s been so far: shake-ups, shut-ups & dress-ups (as for the latter, ahem, why yes, my friends and I did take an impromptu trip to the Bristol Renaissance Faire on Labor Day) – and it’s only Wednesday. Anyone else? Y’know what else has suddenly happened within the past week, at least here in Chicago? GLORIOUS FALL! To borrow a word from my dear friend Tate, it’s downright autumnal. And you know what that means…
That’s right, the return of the colored tights!
Ok, so for some reason the sun was being particularly unreasonable this morning, but if you can’t tell, my legs are orange.
