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.)
Hello there! Today was Fakesgiving (fake friends Thanksgiving), and it was a total success. Last year we had 4 people; this year we had 14 people! And so much wonderful food! We try to dress up because it’s just more fun, and that ends up making Fakesgiving more classy than my regular Thanksgiving, to be honest. Here’s what I wore:
This is almost head-to-toe New York & Company. Top: NY & Co. (size 6), pencil skirt: NY & Co. Collection (size 12).
TGIF, am I right?
Super simple look today, but one I haven’t featured, so posting anyway – although there is really something to be said for simple clothes that are easy to wear and just make you feel good.
Good morning! Tough to say what’s good about it, though, as a) it’s Monday, b) it’s a glum day, and c) I was wide awake at 2:30 am and tossed and turned for a good while after that. Then I forgot my coffee at home and felt stabby on the ridiculously stop-n-go (emphasis on the stop) CTA. As my beloved friend Kate would say, there is way too much Monday in today!
But whatever, at least I’m having a little fun.
I feel like this is, quite obviously, the sister outfit to my last post – but while that girl was the preppy cheerleader, this one is the boho art student. Or something.
What’s that I spy after two days of rain & gloom?
Why, it’s the sun! Thank heavens! Hot and humid? Ok, we’re used to it. Hot and humid AND rainy? Ugh, PASS. But today I feel as summery as the weather in this easy-breezy look.
Totally simple yet still chic & put-together look today:
Then again, I think pencil skirts almost always achieve that feel.
