J.Crew is offering 25% off all online purchases (code: GETGIFTING) through tomorrow at midnight. I’m pretty bonkers about plaid at this point and think this green blouse would be a fab [early] Holiday gift to my closet. And for you Momma’s out there, this also comes in a little girls version. You know, if sporting coordinating outfits with your mini is your thing. ((spoiler alert: they would TOTALLY be my thing))
I’d tuck mine into a high waisted black skirt and let the smaller lady of the house sport with velvet skinnies and ballet flats. Hypothetically speaking of course…
Today is my Friday! Highfives, yeehaws, fist pumps, and such. 2 quick references c/o this photo:
- Because I’m the clumsiest person alive, I will most likely impale myself with my pumps at some point today. These things need hazardous wear insurance.
- I need a
haircuttrim. These locks are getting too long too quickly. Thankfully I don’t have roots of any sort or fashion or I would curse prenatal vitamins for all they’re worth. ((my tip for all you folks looking to grow your hair & nails quickly— prenatals. seriously))
Peter Pan collar top: J.Crew Factory + take 30% off with code THIRTY // skater skirt: Norstrom (similar in faux leather) // silver spike pumps: Shoemint but I’m geeking out over these garnet Zara pumps & these black d’Orsay pumps that look identical (minus $300) to the Vince ones every fashion blogger has been sportin’ as of late.
I warned y’all yesterday that my closet (and subsequent outfit posts) would likely be trending a little more monochromatic in the coming months. Well, I figured I’d just make life real easy on everyone and go ahead and jump the color ship- for today at least.
& have I talked about how obsessed I am with this skirt? It’s perfect. Seriously. Natural waist defining, a-line, knee skimming, structured fabric, office appropriate perfection. Is it totally obvious (with my excessive, semi-coherent rambling) that I’m a fan?
Some mornings you wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed ready to take on the day. Others, well, you rise so early that you forget to actually hit the silence button on your alarm, barrel roll out of bed in your best attempt to not wake the sleeping, shuffle to the bathroom (you are- after all- only half awake), and hustle through the whole wash- brush- apply routine in record time. You try your actual damnedest to remember to do everything on your daily “list” before departing far earlier than your normal time and actually arriving [wait for it] at your destination a full 15 minutes EARLY.
BAM! proud party of one right here
And of course, an easy outfit is required for days such as this. My favorite cobalt silk shirtdress and my go-to nude pumps. Throw on an extra bangle or two just for good measure. It is before 7 am after all and one certainly can’t question your judgement. At least, I seriously wouldn’t recommend it.
