Another Double Post

It seems I've been away for a bit, eh? I've been working a lot this week, which means I've been pretty much wearing my work clothes all day. I do have two outfits from this week that were actually work outfits, but I kept them on after work because I liked them.

For the first outfit I finally broke out my floral shirt that I bought after being influenced by an article in lucky magazine (see earlier posts). It's not quite how I envisioned styling it. It doesn't really feel like 'me', but I liked the outfit nonetheless. I felt a bit Diane Keaton-esque and I was very comfortable.

The Breakdown:


Dress with peach detail: H&M
Skirt: H&M, resale shop
Shirt: Thrifted (no label)
Black Flats: Mia
Nylons: CVS

Hat: H&M
Ball Necklace: H&M

This second outfit I wore to work during the day (with my work shirt over it) but then added the belt and threw on the long cardigan after work to visit with a friend. I wore a fluffy blue skirt under the black one to give the appearance of a petticoat (something I really really want for my dresses this spring/summer). Actually I did the same thing with the outfit from above too. Above I'm wearing a black dress with a fluffy black skirt underneath.

The Breakdown:


Shirt: Urban Outfitters, Sale
Purple Cardigan: Banana Republic, Thrifted
Black Skirt: Mossimo, Thrifted
Blue Skirt: Tramp, Thrifted
Blue Socks: Betsey Johnson
Black Flats: Thrifted
Nylons: CVS

Necklace: handmade by the husband
Belt: Thrifted

I am very disappointed because this week is the Ann Arbor Film Festival and I don't have enough money to go!! I'm never back in Michigan for the festival and now that I live here I don't have enough money!! Grrrrrrr!!!!!! Usually I'm okay with being poor, but this week it really sucks.

Also, it would be nice to go see Tegan and Sara tonight at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, but again no money.

In good news though, this upcoming Tuesday Jon and I are going on our first official date since moving back to the mitten. So, expect a super cute outfit post next Tuesday!

Goodness, the cold has returned! Well, I guess the idea of spring being here for good was just too good to be true. I hope it comes back soon!

I wore this outfit out to the movies today (The Art of the Steal). It was convenient because I had to work afterwards, so I just had to throw my work shirt on over it. I don't wear black very often, but of the black garments that I do own, this is one of my favorites. The cut is very flirty and cute. It's short enough to show off some leg, but not too short that I couldn't wear it to work.

The shoes that I'm wearing are new! I bought them at the thrift store the other day. They really aren't a style that I would normal flock to, however I still found them quite interesting and just couldn't put them down. I scanned up and down the thrift store and when I got to the register they were still with me. They won over a pink trench coat with a bow! I'm glad I bought them though! I'll get a close up of them another time.

Goodnight! (I'm sleepy.)

The Breakdown:


Dress: Rampage, Gift, Thrifted
Cream Blouse: Old Navy
Nylons: Meijer
Flats: Thrifted

Owl Necklace: Ebay
