I have real glamour shots, somewhere at my parents’ house. I must look into where they are now.
So anyways, its cold in the mornings, warm in the afternoons but not warm enough and definitely cold enough to keep me from going bare-legged. So some light blue tights to go along with stripes and orange fingernails & lips. A great look for sitting in one’s office and organizing paperwork, don’t you think?

I’ve continued taking pictures of my outfits to “showcase” my personal style but have failed in the equally important step of uploading them here. Fear not, I’m still getting up every morning and dressing myself, sometimes with great success.
So below you can find a total of five! different outfits displayed at varying degrees of photo quality:
First up is what I wore last week chasing that dog -> I’m sure I was an interesting site to see but I’m forever glad this skirt has pockets which carried my mass of keys as I sped through the neighborhood.
Shirt: Old Navy | skirt: H&M | belt: thrifted | shoes: dolce vita | headband: from JenLovesKev's shop a few years back
Next is a fairly meh-ish outfit. Maybe its the ponytail or the circle scarf (which I will be de-circling soon enough) or maybe its just the way it looks in pictures. It was comfortable just doesn’t look so great here:
scarf: anthropologie | shirt: banana republic | skirt: urban outfitters (thrifted) | shoes: urban outfitters | bracelet (not like anyone can see it): GAP
I liked this one more:
I’ve had these flats for a while but only now just accidentally pulled the bows apart. It was an accident. The middle was sown together and I was readjusting the left one and just pulled it too hard. So now they look a little bit sloppier. Pretty typical for me (the pictures are pre-destructo). Also, the polka dots on my shirt are coral-y and my skirt is a rust color. I’m going to do this color combo again soon.
shirt: H&M | sweater: Old Navy, c. 2005 | skirt: Anthropologie | shoes: GAP | earrings: Pavement
this is what I wore to brighten up a cold Tuesday:
I wanted to wear this skirt one last time while it was still cold because it is ridiculously short and therefore I will only wear it with tights. That said, I think maybe it might be time to say goodbye to it because, for real, I’ll be 28 next year and I just don’t know that it screams “adult.” Also, the only other time I wore it this year was in December. So, you know, there’s that.
shirt: modcloth, c. 2009 | skirt: h&M | tights: target, like two years ago | shoes: thrifted
and finally, its that special time of the year:
This was what I wore for the first day of the Penguins-Flyers playoff series. Yinz Luv Da Guins is a youtube show (though there hasn’t been a new episode since the Playoffs last year) that I have enjoyed in the past. I saw this t-shirt at Wildcard and purchased it immediately. Also, I have “mad scientist” hair happening right now because I had just washed and dried it and this is what it looks like for the first few hours.
sweater: thrifted | t-shirt: wildcard | skirt: jcrew | belt: thrifted | shoes: thrifted
These are from last week, when it was still technically winter.
This grey top is one of my few target purchases that I have never questioned (RE: quality, seasonal flexibility, trendiness) in the years that I have had it. If I recall correctly, it was on clearance and I just bought it on a whim, so that I still have it is impressive.
shirt: target (old) | skirt: thrifted | shoes: target, old | pin: old summer camp | bracelets: jcrew (clearance) & jess lc
Happy first day of
Here is me wearing a bunch of pink and orange to celebrate this warm weather, regardless of the whatever season we are actually in.
cardigan: j.crew, thrifted | dress: H&M, last year | flats: seychelles
I felt a bit like Rosie the Riveter in this outfit. Go, ladies, go.
In college, when my hair was a bit shorter and the underside was hot pink, I wore my hair up like this all the time. I just throw it up with some bobby pins and call it a day. But now its so uncommon for me to do this that two of my coworkers didn’t recognize me when I came into the office.
Here is a better close-up of my shoes that I last wore here.
scarf: thrifted | dress: thrifted (anthropologie) | tights: target | necklace: anthropologie shoes: thrifted
I bought this scarf in London. Even though I was visiting in August, it turned out to be a lot cooler than I anticipated and I purchased it from one of those touristy stands. It was only £4 and I often wonder why I didn’t buy more. At the end of fall I was thinking about its light color, basically mint, and wondering whether I would really continue getting any more wear out of it.
Fashion trends are funny like that. Fast forward a few months and mint is everywhere and one of the “it” colors for spring. I now I have no more worries about whether my scarf has a future and yet - what changed? My scarf looks the same but I’ve been so influenced that I see it in an entirely different light. It kind of makes me uncomfortable, if I’m going to be real.
These pastel shades have been making the rounds of so many style blogs its impossible not to be influenced by them. Also: they’re pretty together.
shirt: thrifted | necklace: gift from my friend Jay | belt: target | jeans: GAP | socks: american apparel | shoes: guess, from my friend Janessa | bracelet: Kate Spade (sample sale!)
These are from last Wednesday. I’ve been distracted as of late by nothing in particular.
I had the day off and spent it with my bff Janessa going out to lunch and doing some antiquing.
I hadn’t been to the E. N. Miller Antique Mall before and was impressed with how surprisingly large it was. I’ll plan to go back once we start getting some of the other rooms of our house in order.
