Onefer Tuesday: Army Pink

Guys, I’m running a little low on outfits to show you.  I guess when you don’t shower each day until about 4, and then just put on clothes to meet your bestie for dinner, there’s not a huge incentive to pick out something really cute.  Plus, all my photography space is currently taken over by boxes.

I should be good for a little while longer, but I want to set the expectations up front that Two-fer Tuesdays might be suspended for a bit, starting now.

I really liked this outfit.  I think it evolved from the boot socks – I bought a zillion of them a couple weeks ago at Target, but I realized once I got them home I’m not totally sure how to wear them.  The tall ones are easier, though (there aren’t a whole lot of options), and I like the tan with the army green.  Of course, to show them off properly, I had to wear a skirt (I suppose REALLY skinny jeans might have worked, but remember, this is me we’re talking about), and I just went from there.  I also like the contrast of the feminine details of the dress and pink accessories with the more edgy look of the boots and socks.

1 - white dress, blazer, tall bootsWhat do you think of this pseudo-professional look?  Do you like the style mixing, or do you prefer sticking with all feminine or all edgy?  Regardless, aren’t these socks the cutest?  Have you tried boot socks yet – how do you wear them?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

30, Flirty, and Thriving

Here we are, mid-January, and I’m a little older, a little wiser, and a little bit more fashionable.

Actually, I’m not sure if any of that is true, except the first one. The first one is, unfortunately, definitely true. I’ve hit the big 3-0 and while I don’t feel different, surely I’ve become more mature or something, right?

Because I’m still in a bit of denial, here is a picture from when I was MUCH younger.  Like two weeks ago.
1 - chambray and leggingsI actually really, really love this outfit and I hope I remember to wear it again.  Let me break it down for you.

First, the leggings are fleece lined.  If you don’t have any of those yet, you need to buy them right now before they are replaced by all the spring clothing.  They will change your life.

Of course, I don’t think it’s generally considered acceptable to wear heavy socks with leggings and booties, but it was super cold, so whatever.

Next, you know I don’t believe in leggings as pants, even if they are super thick, fleece-lined wonders.  So, I looked in my closet for anything long enough to cover me and found this black tank dress.  I’d bought it and a hot pink one on Ebay for like $8 each to go under a sheer dress, and I think I’ll now buy one in every color – they really are the perfect accessory, and fit just like a really stretchy tank. (They are called “slips” on Ebay, but there is nothing slippery about them.)

Because they fit like a really stretchy tank, though, they’re not appropriate alone.  Plus, that would be boring.  So, I layered with my chambray shirt (which was ALMOST long enough on its own), and then added a cardigan – because it was REALLY cold two weeks ago, guys.  Finally, I finished off with these fun earrings my sister gave me for Christmas, and my go-to gold cuff.

How did you all stay warm in those frigid days last week and the week before? Let’s get some ideas, because none of us are so naive to think that these beautiful spring temperatures are already here to stay in January.
