So thanks to a marathon Pan Am session (if you haven’t watched it you should. amazing.), I overloaded my air card and no longer have internet at my apartment. Thankfully the awesome coffee shop down the street has free internet and amazing chai tea lattes - two birds with one stone!
I have a ton of outfits backed up since Wednesday so I’ll get right to it!!
A little bit lady-like for work with one of my favorite blouses. That bow looks cute under so much; dresses, cardigans, sweaters, other blouses. I can’t get enough.
Cardigan: Old Navy, Blouse: H&M, Skirt: Pavement, Tights: Hue, Pumps: Carlos Santana, Watch: Guess, Bracelets: American Eagle and Macy’s, Sunnies: Forever 21.
Sparkly buttons make things just a little more special.
So….I’ve been thinking of doing something different to my hair for a while. The only thing that’s been putting a damper in my ideas is that my hair grows like a weed. Not such a horrible problem to have, except that getting highlight touch-ups every 3-4 weeks can get rather expensive! The solution?
Ombre hair! The colorist highlighted the lower half of my hair, mimicking the natural highlights your hair gets after a summer in the sun. The best part? The roots are my natural color so I can let it grown out for as long as I want! Woohooo. The girls over at MCN Salon ALWAYS make me feel super transformed when I leave.
Super subtle but I’m really digging it. It totally brightens my face and makes me look less pale (which is great since I am SOOOO pale right now. I put self tanner on all the time…yeah I know you couldn’t tell. It’s THAT bad).
Yesterday I met up with a friend for some carbs, shopping, and girl talk. I kept things slouchy and comfy with an oversized sweater, straight legged jeans, and ballet flats.
I felt super classic. Especially when I threw on my camel coat.
Some hardware on my flats gave my outfit a little bit of an edge. Sparkles and studs - my favorite mix of girly and bad-ass.
And you can’t get more comfy than a big knit sweater.
Jeans and Sunnies: Forever 21, Sweater: Gap, Flats: Jessica Simpson via Marshall’s, Ring: Francesca’s.
My Saturday shopping took me to Avalon Exchange in Mt. Lebo. Thank goodness the prices are so amazing because I always find something I want to take home with me. Their selection is a fabulous mix of designers, classic brands, and the unique.
So, I have been DYING for a pair of colored denim and have almost bought colorful jeans about 100 times in the past few months. The problem is that they are all over $100 (way over my poor graduate student shopping budget). Then I spotted these.
They fit amazing, don’t need to be hemmed, and were $16.50. SOLD!
Jeans: AG Stevie Straight Leg Jeans - thrifted, Booties: Daniblack, Tee: American Apparel, Necklace: Forever 21, Blazer: forgot to check the tag before I left my house! oops.
I wore these out to grab some beer and crocodile and cactus pirogues at the Church Brew Works. All I can say is YUM.
Now on to today - I am blowing off the report I have to write for a few hours of beer and football with my brother.
This outfit is what I think of when I think of fall clothes. Flannel, jeans, boots, and a casual jacket.
Jeans: Arden B, Flannel: Hanna G petite, Jacket: Cabi, Tee: Organic brand via T J Maxx, Sunnies: Forever 21, Boots: Steve Madden.
Hope everyone has a FABULOUS Sunday afternoon.
