What I Wore: March Madness

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

I actually feel like blogging today! I blame it on the light workload and beautiful almost-80 weather and the fact that I got new speakers for my computer so I can jam out to B.O.B. like it's my j.o.b. (see what I did there man I am clever you guys).

I thought I'd do a roundup of my March outfits, as posted on Instagram, just in case you missed it or you saw it and wanted the deets. Is it still cool to say deets?

In personal stuff news, I'm finally catching up to my work, but also we bought a dog. Her name is Penelope Jane. Yes I am aware that it's weird to give your dog a formal name, but if you could hear my 6-year-old shouting "Penelope JANE!" when she eats his shoes, you'd understand. When she's not in trouble, she's just Penny.

I'm the most emotionally awkward person in the world, so I feel like I project onto dogs. Poor Penny is smothered daily. She's a springer spaniel and has already grown to the point that having her on my lap while I work is a feat of aerodynamics and not especially comfortable. We got her for my daughter's birthday and the reaction was perfection. Addie is like, heartbreakingly sweet and I apologize to her daily for having such an emotionally stunted mother. 

My mom and my aunt (aka second mom) are flying in today and I need to do boring stuff like vacuum and wash sheets (wait I think I just identified my motivation for blogging instead). Here are March's greatest hits: 

Worn to: A marketing seminar I taught for a friend. It was fun but most importantly, I unwound afterward by talking my husband into see The DUFF. He was really super happy about it. 
Top: Calvin Klein (I own like four of these no-iron essential shirts) (here) (similar)
Jacket: zaza (I'm obsessed with this one) (great price)
Jeans: Calvin Klein (here) (Also they now come in curvy praise all)
Boots: Refresh (similar) (these are boss)
Watch: Gucci (here)
Glasses: Ray Ban and honestly they changed my life in a way that only foldable polarized sunglasses can (here

Worn to: Church. Also briefly considered flamenco dancing. Decided I was too old. 
Top: Vince Camuto (here)
Skirt: Ambiance (same one, different pattern) (brighter colors ,would still look amazing with this top)
Shoes: Nine West (similar)
Necklace: Aldo (similar)

Yeah just ignore the posing here. 
Worn to: Shopping with one of my friends. I felt very '70s in this. 
Top: Vince Camuto (here)
Jeans: Calvin Klein (here)
Necklace: Nordstrom (similar)
Bracelet: F21 (similar)
Boots: Ardene (Canada) (similar) (similar)
Bag: Coach (here, in chalk) Also, for those who are scared of cream leather bags, Magic Erasers work wonders. 

Penny makes her first cameo. 
Worn to: Running errands and lunch with my husband.
Shirt: Infamous and still my favorite T-shirt (they still have it in XS!
Jeans: You guessed it. (here)
Necklace: Cara (sold out) (similar) (similar) When I bought this necklace I didn't realize how much I'd actually wear it. Turns out, tassels look good with everything. I even bought one for my mom. 
Jacket: Calvin Klein (wahhh it's sold out) (similar)
Boots: White Mountain (here)

Aaaand she shows up again. 
Worn to: Lunch on a rainy day. 
Jeans: Calvin Klein (I bought them at Costco) (I have a problem) (here)
Jacket: Hurley (here) I bought it after we had a little cold snap and was so glad. 
Boots: White Mountain (here)

Check out the Instagram for a few others that I haven't posted here. I like IG for outfit posts because it's so much faster, but I do miss posting here too! I'll do something and be like oh yeah, I should blog that... oh wait. So yeah, I need to get back at it. I miss you guys, too. So stay tuned, I have some posts in the works. Important stuff like how I feel uninspired because everything in stores is boho and I'm not, as well as how I finally learned to tame my psychotic eyebrows into some semblance of submission. 

Jerk eyebrows, why you gotta play me like that?

Love the puppy. For a minute I thought it was my puppy. The look like they could be sisters except for mine is an Aussie shepard.

Yay! Such a nice surprise to see your blog today! Penny is adorable :) I love having a dog - he follows me around all day, like a cross between a guardian angel and a scheming butler.

Linda Loui said...

Oh my gosh what a cute puppy! And all your outfits are fabulous. Our dogs have real names too, even last names that are different from ours. Yes we are goofballs.

"like a cross between a guardian angel and a scheming butler."

Hahaha truer words were never spoken ever!

Real puppy names FTW!

I love you and I miss you!

I can't get onto Instagram!

The red top outfit is my favorite because red is a very striking color.
