stripey & strappy

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.

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!

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.

spotted & striped gap goodies

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.

modcloth avocado orchard dress

Those of you who follow me on Twitter got a little sneak peek at this yesterday. A while back, I was browsing ModCloth, like ya do, lusting after many a lovely frock (also like ya do), when I came across the Avocado Orchard Dress. I got weak in the knees at the mere sight of it! The cut! That belt! Those colors! But it was OUT OF STOCK! So I signed up for their handy “Alert me when this is back in stock” feature, figured it would never be back in stock, and promptly forgot about it. Then I got an email with the following subject line:

Avocado Orchard Dress – Hurry, it’s back in stock!

Oh. Ooh. HURRY I DID!

Don’t you love it? :)

Totally simple yet still chic & put-together look today:

Then again, I think pencil skirts almost always achieve that feel.

the white stripes

Sorry, no Jack or Meg White here – just an abundance of white stripes!

Ok, maybe not an abundance. I was worried it was perhaps too stripey and/or too matchy-matchy. What say you?
