I like to think these wedges scream


Whether that’s true or not remains to be seen…

However, since they’re so bright, I like to wear them something a bit more simple:
Exhibit A (above): black & white polka dots and skinnies.
Or the last time I wore them – Exhibit B: with a black & white dress.
These were also my wedding shoes, and either I have gotten worse at walking in heels (which is entirely possible. and these are wedges, no less) or these shoes got stretched out during that day, or my feet are shrinking, because I just can’t. quite. walk. like a normal person in these magenta suede wedges.

down time

Casual, casual, casual today. Sometimes I just don't have any great outfit ideas bursting out of my brain. And that's ok - it's ok (and even really helpful!) to return to the basics of a long-sleeved shirt and jeans. Artists and painters and designers aren't ALWAYS creating something amazing, are they? We all need some down time to get inspired again - on that note, Merry Christmas!
Hope you enjoy the holiday with loved ones!

shirt: from a local consignment shop (BKE)
scarf: gift from a friend
jeans: c/o of Aéropostale
flats: WalMart
jacket: Target

Mr. Picks Mondays: Shades of Blue and of Gray

This week, the Mr. chose the dress, and I included everything else - it wasn't warm enough JUST YET for bare legs and arms. Soon, my friends, SOON! However, I think the different shades of blue, gray & taupe play off of each other nicely, dontcha think?

Another Two-fer

Another two outfits for you in today's post. They both include a button up under a sweater, colored skinnies and ankle boots. Not a new combination at all, but a tried and true favorite, especially this past winter. 

I've been so obsessed with wearing my button-ups this fall & winter that I gave them their own little section in my closet. That way, I don't have to dig through the rest of my tops to find the one I want. I just let my eyes run over all the button-ups (sorted by color, of course) in one little area and choose the one I want to wear that day. 


1st outfit
shirt: GUCCI (from a friend) similar below
sweater: GAP (thrifted) similar below
corduroys: Joe Fresh (thrifted) similar below
booties: Old Navy exact & similar below

2nd outfit
chambray: Lauren Conrad via Kohl's similar below
sweater: local consignment shop
pants: Lauren Conrad via Kohl's (thrifted)
booties: Old Navy exact & similar below

Clothes I'm Parting With

I went through my closet this last week (I had some free time with all the snow), and have some items I'm ready to part with. There's not TONS of room in my closet now, but I can move things around a lot easier - and that feels great for a nerd like me. 

Here are the items I'm going to take to my favorite consignment store, Trends. Whatever they don't take will get donated to a local ARC or Goodwill.

left to right: Ann Taylor oatmeal sweater; J Crew mustard sweater; black & white short sleeve jacket 

left to right: brown & black goucho pants; pink plaid bermuda shorts (on me they're more like capri length); black tulle skirt; light blue shorts; white shorts

 left to right: strapless white top; red tunic length top; Love & Pink shirt from VS; dark green slouchy top; long sleeved blue shirt; black & blue printed sleeveless top; black crewneck shirt; gray slouchy "bat wing" shirt; brown & white striped shirt

left to right: BCBGirls sandals; white belt; mint colored scarf

There were also some things I already gave away to some friends and my sweet mama. 
(not pictured)
to 1 friend: pair of gray pants
to another friend: 2 dresses - 1 pewter & black, the other purple & teal
to my mama: a purple cocktail dress; pink skirt; pink sweater & striped scarf

In other news, this was my Sunday morning while my Mr. slept in... 
Turbo, lazily observing

Cali, imploring me to snuggle

essentials: a (fancy) new tumbler & Vera Bradley mug, filled (and refilled) with coffee

Here's to parting with things I no longer need, and enjoying what remains of the weekend!
