#OOTD: T-Shirt and Jeans

Pardon the wet grass stuck to my feet. I self-timed this quick outfit photo after I took Doak on his morning stroll, then dashed to work. Late. So, ya know… ‘keepin’ it real’ and stuff. ;)

I love these Free People ‘High Rise Roller’ skinnies because they’re super soft and fit like a jegging, and I’m building a little collection of their perfectly oversized American-made tees and tanks.

#OOTD: AE hi-rise skinny jeggings.

Just in case you missed the first four times I mentioned my love for American Eagle’s hi-rise skinny jeggings, lemme just repeat myself: I could wear them every day.

I may have purchased three pairs of the black during the BOGO sale, just in case they’re discontinued next season; hashtag: doomsday prepper.

 

#OOTD: The Perfect Shirt

My friend, Meghan, got this Free People ‘Sunset Park’ thermal in her boutique earlier this month and sold them all right out of the box before she could even get them on the floor. When she restocked last week, I made a beeline to her shop to get one; and I may go back for the black.

It’s light enough to wear into the spring, long enough to pair with leggings for the weekend, and just so stinkin’ comfortable.

I can’t get enough soft flowy tops these days.

Grown-Up Coats

Good coats are wasted on Florida weather. For years I avoided the investment because we sunshine-staters rarely have an occasion to wear them; but once in a blue moon, some formal event pops up on cold evening and your coatless self is left with two options: 1.) Grin and bare it (there’s nothing chic about chattering teeth); or 2.) Cover up that cocktail dress with your denim jacket from the Gap.

This year I decided it was time to address the coat deficit in my closet, since a 30 year old should probably have appropriate outerwear that she didn’t find on a clearance rack in the juniors department during college. I bought this Via Spiga wool blend trench on Hautelook for less than $100 at the start of the season, and followed it up shortly after with a black Vince Camuto number.

Wearing:

Via Spiga coat
Cynthia Rowley silk floral tank (Marshall’s)
AE hi-rise jeggings
I.N.C. navy suede pumps
Hobo ‘Lauren’ clutch wallet

#OOTD: Easy Like Monday Morning?

2015/01/img_5827.jpgI really wanted to wear sweatpants to work this morning, but I went for item #2 on The List of Least Professional But Most Comfortable Wardrobe Favorites: my relaxed-fit distressed boyfriend jeans.

Wearing:

Blank Denim Galaxy Jeans
Olive & Oak tee
Nine West sandals & Lauren Merkin leather tote (Hautelook)

Back in Black

Can’t you just hear the collective sighs of the employed as we trudge back to work after the holidays? Brew all the coffee!

We didn’t get much of a break between Christmas and the new year. Even though the flower shop was closed for a few days, we were booked solid with weddings and events. There was a lot of design and delivery work happening behind-the-scenes, mostly by yours truly. So my first working Monday of 2015 may be a really short one. And I’m already late.

I hope you all have some leftover baked goods or candy canes to get you through the day. God speed!

#OOTD: Oatmeal

A Pretty Penny OOTD Jeans and Sweater

I was going to title this one, “Oh, hey, look how wrinkled this sweater is; get in the car, it’s too late to change!

This outfit is actually from a week or two ago, back when Florida was actively participating in winter and I spent most days dressed like Felicity Porter: chunky sweaters, comfy jeans, and practical flats.

#OOTD: Black & Tan

If you’re starting the winter with a sweater deficit, I recommend a trip to Marshall’s. They have a great selection of cashmere blends and merino wools for the holiday, with lots of styles priced from $30 to $50.

Dear Santa, please bring me a stack of cozy sweaters and chunky knits for Christmas!
