This Week in Fashion

What an icky week! It was rainy, chilly and dreary for the better part of the week but there were some moments of sunshine mixed in. I tried not to let the weather affect my clothing choices like it usually does and I think I did a pretty good job of not dressing drab. I also ate out far too much this week! A diner on Tuesday, Ruby Tuesday's on Thursday and we're getting something junky today at work (maybe Duchess hot dogs...YUM!)  This weekend I get to plant some flowers my parents bought be (if it's not rainy) and I have TONS of magazines to read [2 months worth]...I've had no time lately! But I WILL get through most of them this weekend.

I also NEED to find more of these Free People skinny jeans so I can buy more and have them forever. I have loved them since the moment I bought them on Gilt Groupe but that obviously means that they are going to be hard to find again. I want the exact model, not a similar pair. (meaning this was a pointless ramble since you guys don't know what it is...I think they were called "5 Pocket Skinny Jean in midnight indigo")

Wednesday: Blazer: Necessary Objects $20, Tank: Willi Smith (TJ Maxx) $15, Pants: Michael Kors (TJ Maxx) $40, Heels: Miu Miu, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Rings: old and c/o OASAP, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Thursday: Blazer: Lauren Ralph Lauren (TJ Maxx) gift, Tee: Michael Kors (Marshalls) $20, Jeans: Free People (Marshalls) $30, Wedges: Steve Madden (DSW) $55, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Rings: old and c/o OASAP, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

  1. I can't believe I did not see those shoes on Thursday! You have to point them out next time you wear them.

  2. Oooh, I love that tote! I never buy Loreal because they are not cruelty free but I'm definitely going to tell my friends that if they have receipts they should send them in!

  4. Ditto Lucia's comment. I'm so intrigued! Although I think I've seen them out in the store before. They're really narrow, aren't they? You're brave!
