WIW 11.27.13 - Paul Bunyan in the City

My husband laughed good-naturedly at my outfit today and said I looked like I was heading out to chop wood. I now have an axe to grind with him, lol.

Whatever. I love this plaid blouse.


WIW 11.25.13 - Houndstooth and Hot Pink

I like this outfit...and all the layers are keeping me nice and warm.

I'm irritated with my collar though...it won't stay put. If I could breathe with the top button done up, I'd button it, but it cuts off my airway, so I'm resigned to looking a bit like Disco Stu.

WIW 11.21.13 - Baby, It's Cold Outside

Just trying to stay warm...

I threw on the necklace because I wanted to mirror the lighter color of the boots higher up, but it looks like it's too short, so I'll probably remove it.

Sweater: H&M
Pants: Loft
Booties: Vince Camuto


WIW 11.19.13 - Anna's Skirt and a Whole Lotta Black

Anna offered to sell this skirt to me and I have been hemming and hawing because I couldn't figure out how to style it. She suggested I just wear it with my black turtleneck. She's so smart! I really like this! Thanks Anna :)

P.S. I was too tired to smile when I took this photo. Coffee has since remedied the problem, lol!


WIW 11.18.13 - weekend & back to work

The weather has turned recently and it's been pretty cold out, so I bought a bunch of sweaters. My husband's reaction to the pink cat one was predictable: "OH GAWD." hahaha :) I'm wearing it regardless if it's too twee or young or not serious enough for work because I need an emotional pick me up today. It's either the cat sweater or a bunch of drugs. (Seasonal Affective Disorder is striking once again.) This seems healthier.

White Shirt: Brooks Bros.
Cat Sweater: from Nordie's
Skirt: Halogen
Shoes: Crown Vintage (need to replace these with something similar. They're almost worn out)

Outfit #2 is what I wore to hang out with some friends on Saturday. Cozy and uncomplicated.

Sweater: H&M
Jeans: Gap always skinny
Boots: from DSW

WIW 11.13.13 - Inspired by Angie

I adore this outfit of Angie's:


Sadly, I don't have a lace blouse that works quite as well, but I did the best I could with this green Boden top. I had to roll up the sleeves, because the lace sleeves were too tight over the white shirt to look good and my white shirt wasn't long enough to peak out the bottom like Angie's.

I'm not as much of a minimalist as Angie, so was tempted to add a necklace. I can't tell if it works here or not. What do you think?

WIW 11.12.13 - Safari-esque

This jacket has something of a girly safari vibe to it. I think it's the olive color, the zippers and pockets. My spotted top = a leopard dashing across the plain.

Jacket - Classiques Entier
Shirt - B/W Market
Skirt - Halogen
Boots - Clarks


WIW 11.11.13 - Running Out the Door

Our power was out this weekend, so things like alarm clocks got out of whack. I woke up only 20 minutes before I had to be on the bus, so this was a very rushed morning. I hope I don't look too...discomposed...today.

Comments and suggestions are always appreciated. Thank you!

Jacket: asos
Top & Pants: Loft
Shoes: Crown Vintage


WIW 11.8.13 - Cozy Outfit

I was traumatized yesterday by our rainy and windy weather. My son's soccer practice was cancelled - which NEVER happens here for a little rain. Today, I decided to bundle up--and guess what, it's sunny and nice out, if a little chilly. Go figure, lol.

I could not resist this blouse. It was love at first sight. Unfortunately, it doesn't go with any of the bottoms in my closet. I will be shopping to remedy this :) I think I would have preferred bootcuts in a lighter wash for this outfit.

Sweater - handknit by me
Blouse - Willi Smith from TJ Maxx
Jeans - AE
Shoes - Born


WIW 11.7.13 - Polka Dots

My clothing is getting more and more somber. I used to wear lots of color, so am not sure why I'm wearing so many dark pieces lately. I tried to liven things up with polka dots, bling and nude hose instead of opaque tights. Does this work?

Jacket: Classiques Entier
Sweater: Loft
Skirt: Halogen Seamed Pencil
Boots: Clarks

Thanks, as always, for your comments and suggestions!
