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.)
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.
Guys, guess what – it’s already hump day! [Insert creepster Will Schuester seduction here.] Thaaank God, Allah, Xenu, Gaga, etc.
You’ve already seen this $7 dress (maybe several times), but here you are anyway:
Yep, that’s right, $7 for a silk Simply Vera dress (size 4) on clearance at Kohl’s. I’ve already written about that before, but I’m no less proud of the score today. Tan flats: Nine West.
Do you have a favorite outfit? I think most people do. It’s that one go-to look that is easy, cute, and just plain makes you feel good. For my good friend Jamie, it’s her black shirt dress. I love a shirt dress, and frankly, what gal doesn’t? They couldn’t get more simple or flattering.
So, as an homage to Jamie, here’s my black shirt dress!
Picked up this Merona pintuck shirt dress (size M) at Target last week on clearance for $17 (I can only find the petite version on their website).
