I just realized I never take photos of myself in my suit jackets anymore. Rest assured, I never go into court without a matching blazer + pant/skirt, if anyone from management is reading!

I actually ended up gifting these shoes to one of my friends this afternoon. They’re a half size too big, and I stupidly thought I could make them work. I love rehoming things!

I’m an avid “What not to Wear” watcher, despite my mild annoyance with the gimmicky “ambushes” on the seemingly unsuspecting candidates, and when I get dressed in the mornings, I definitely hear Stacy’s voice going “color, texture, pattern, shine'” when I think about how to add interest to my work clothes. Disclaimer: this is NOT a court-appropriate outfit. I would never wear a lace skirt to court, and you shouldn’t either. However, this was totally fun for the office!

A friend pointed out that my cats are constantly photobombing my pictures. She’s not wrong. Here’s an outtake:

I love this scene from Portlandia, and that is EXACTLY what I was thinking when I got dressed this morning.

Please note my cat, Fatman, in the left periphery. Who knows what he sees on my floor?

Another day, another bright outfit. It’s been overcast and cool (upper 60s) the past week, with the sun making an appearance around 3:00 in the afternoon, so I’ve been trying to cheer myself up through clothing! Not shopping all month is not making it easy, either! Pro tip: if you buy the initial ring from Urban Outfitters, paint over it with a coat of clear polish before you wear it – there’s a reason why it’s only $8!

This photo cracked me up, from my weird expression to Violet’s energetic commitment to photobombing me. Guess she got jealous that Fatman was featured yesterday.

Until tomorrow,

After the rainiest weekend EVER (no joke, it actually hailed on me as I walked ran into church on Sunday morning) I am more than happy to see the sun, and when I found this super-cute skirt at Ann Taylor, I couldn’t resist picking it up, even though I’m trying (and failing miserably) to shop less.

So I know in a previous post I declared a moratorium on the iPhone photography, but I was running low on time and didn’t want to set up my tripod. I promise someday I’ll take some legit photos! Anyway, my favorite part of this skirt is the zipper detail that runs all down the side:

This whole outfit just put me in a good mood this afternoon. I obviously can’t wear this to court, but I think it’s perfect for a warm casual Friday!

Here’s a photo from earlier this weekend, which pretty much summarizes what I did all day Sunday:
