daily outfit: the “these boots are supposed to be hibernating" edition.

i thought i’d seen the last of my favorite leather boots until i woke up to 30 degree temps.

just like that, they’re re-entered my life…along with a dress that may or may not be testing the boarding school skirt limits (it’s below my finger tips!).

hello, wednesday. i’m glad you’re here.

daily outfit: the “business casual" edition.

this is the first job i’ve had where everyday is dress up day- so far, it’s a great change.

considering the last two years i could’ve worn jeans & sweatshirts to the office (spoiler alert: i never did), this whole business casual dress code is way more my style.

(related: ASOS has some fabulous deals on skirts & dresses for the office.)

daily outfit: the “dolled up for dinner” edition.

the highlight of my day yesterday was getting dressed…

well, it was until i showed up for dinner with a good friend (hi, molly!)

& then randomly stopped by a little bar by the Fashion Mall to meet up with ex-co-workers & friends.

i had no idea what was in store for me when i put on this polka dot number,

but i know seeing Molly & then seeing so many people who get exactly what i’m going through felt oh, so right.

Mama J ordered this top a couple weeks ago & it is adorable.
yes, those are polka dots & giraffes.
like i said, adorable.

seeing that i’m closer to 6 feet than i am to 5 feet, finding a maxi dress that hits the floor poses quite the fashion challenge—a challenge i’m willing to battle!

Jaclyn posted this dress from ASOS a couple weeks ago & i fell in love with its simplicity.. 

so, i ordered it (with the help of a Cup of Jo promo code) & received it last night.

on the model, it’s obviously long enough to wear with heels,

on me, i’ll be wearing it with flat sandals.

the fabric is fantastic, the fit is perfection & i couldn’t be more pleased with this beaut!

(as always, thanks for a terrific find, Jaclyn! xo)

daily outfit: the “BOOM!" edition.
who knew a t-shirt could deliver so much sass to one’s life? i didn’t, but it definitely does.
i spotted this tee a few weeks ago & decided it would be cute with leggings & some boots this fall- maybe to wear around the house, out running errands, lounging on the couch on Sunday fundays, etc.
but then, this morning, as i was flipping through hangers, i decided i might as well wear it to the work place.
(a 1/2 day seems like a justifiable excuse, right?)
i picked out some skinnies, a pair of Frye boots, a bright colored boyfriend cardigan, a giraffe-printed hair bow & got myself a delightful concoction.

gpoyw: the day of Grandma’s 80th birthday (related: it’s Mama J!)

i had no idea what i was going to wear-

it’s something i typically plan out weeks in advance

(i’ve been that way since i was little)

so, like any good fashion detective,

i went to the source.

in one picture, i found the dress, the necklace, and the overall had-to-have look.

this summer, i’m attending a pretty-in-pink-esque bridal shower.

perfect?
