Abandoned

The statistic is a little old, but a 2008 Technorati survey showed that 95% of blogs tracked at that time hadn't been updated in the past 120 days.  I haven't abandoned this blog intentionally, but life has gotten in the way a bit more than usual.  
 

Sweater, Younkers; jumpsuit, ebay; shoes, Target; earrings, purchased in Cozumel; necklace, Arts in the Heart; bracelets, Cozumel, thrifted, and Claire's; ring, Charming Charlie.
 

I really like this jumpsuit.  It is loud, but in colors that are easy to coordinate.  I layered a sweater over it this time so it gives the effect of palazzo pants.
 

So, internet, know that I haven't abandoned you, and hopefully you haven't forgotten me either.

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.
