Short Skit & A Long Jacket

Truth be told, I'm not entirely sure whether this is supposed to be a robe or a sweater.  I'll say it's a sweater since it is cashmere and dry clean only.  Who dry cleans their robe?
 

Sweater, Victoria's Secret; dress, thrifted; tights, Walmart; boots, Rack Room Shoes; necklace, gifted (thanks, Chenille!), earrings, gifted (thanks, Kristin!).

The necklace will forever after be my "pretzel necklace."  I wore it to a beer festival earlier this year and everyone thought it was made of pretzels.  It's actually made of irregular pieces of wood.

Bland Blend

The colors in this dress are a little bland.  It is beige with black stripes, but it also has slimming black insets on the sides and, best of all, pockets(!).
 

Shrug, thrifted; dress, Target; tights, Target; boots, Rack Room Shoes; necklace, gifted (thanks, Holly!); earrings, Claire's.
 

The bubble necklace brought some much-needed color to the sea of beige and black.  Thanks, Holly!

Get Lucky

This song has nothing to do with Saint Patrick's Day, but it's catchy and contains the word "lucky."

This outfit doesn't have much to do with Saint Patrick's Day either, but it has some green and it's what I wore yesterday.
 

Shrug, TJ Maxx; shirt, Walmart; skirt, Target; tights, Target; booties, thrifted; earrings and ear cuff, Claire's; necklace, gifted (thanks, Mom!); jacket, Target.
 

I wore this necklace thinking that maybe the melusine existed in Irish folklore.  She does, sort of.
 

This jacket is on clearance at Target.  I like that it has a moto jacket fit with the comfort of jersey.

Blue Suede Shoes

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this photo posted last week.  My friend and coworker Holly and I coordinated to wear our blue suede shoes on the same day.  We cajoled another coworker's boyfriend to take a picture of our stylish feet.

Jacket, thrifted; tee, Walmart; skirt, Target; tights, Target; booties, Rack Room Shoes; necklace, ebay; earrings, Claire's; glasses, Firmoo.com.
 

Stephen told me I looked very professional.  It must be the jacket or the glasses.  Glasses always make you look more serious and professional.  It definitely isn't the shoes.
 

I love these glasses from Firmoo.com and they were insanely affordable.  I caught them with a "take 60% off your entire purchase" coupon, so these plus a pair of prescription sunglasses were only around $50 total.  They're leopard print-ish, so they'll go with a lot of my wardrobe.
