Everybody’s talking about my fake glasses

This has been my uniform as of late: flowing cardigans and boots. Whatever I can wear to stay warm, I will wear. And yes, even though I wear contacts and have real glasses, I am indeed wearing fake glasses. They were too cute to pass up; also, it didn’t help that Elizabeth was there to pressure me into buying them (so she could wear them). 

What’s on your plate for the weekend? I’m going to a Winter Olympics opening ceremony viewing party tonight and can’t wait to unwind after an insanely busy work week.

Comfort and ease

This was post-turkey coma weekend outfit. Slouchy pants with an elastic waistband, and you really can’t go wrong. I’ve had this vest for a couple of months, and it has been waiting for the perfect moment to be worn. The contrast of slouchy with the structured vest works so well for me, and I’m thinking these pants might become a weekend staple.

Texture and sparkle

All this cool weather has me in the mood for wearing plaid. Even better than plaid? Mixing it with other textures, like wool and sequins! This blouse is the absolute best, and if I were completely honest, I don’t plan on taking it off this weekend. 

Weekend plans, anyone? I’m headed to a game night tonight, and the rest of the weekend is wide open. I’m imagining a little cleaning (glamorous, right?) and finishing up the book I’m reading.

Staple of the year: September

Yesterday I woke up bright and early to head to the nearest Target to snag a bag or two from the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection. The only problem? That store didn’t carry the collection. Luckily the next Target I headed to had a good-sized collection and was basically untouched! I found the two bags I’d had my eye on (see them here). 

I think mustard yellow is one of the most versatile colors to pair with other colors — especially the wine color of my top. For September’s staple post, I wanted to go beyond the neutrals I’ve tended to pair the skirt with this year, and the color pop of my new bag against my top seemed just right!

Tell me: Did you manage to get something from the Phillip Lim collection?

Dinner on the water

Summer, as you well know if you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, is my least-favorite season. This summer, though, is different; we’ve hit 90+ degrees only a few days so far, and the evenings have been pleasant and cool — which made for the best weather for dinner on the water at this restaurant. We went to celebrate my roommate’s golden birthday (she turned 24 on July 24).

I recently found this dress at Goodwill, new with tags. It’s the most I’ve ever spent on a single item from a secondhand store, but the fit of the dress was too good to pass up. I convinced myself to buy it after considering whether or not I’d purchase it for the same price from a store like Macy’s or Dillard’s … and soon it was in my closet. 

Happy, happy weekend! And P.S. Happy birthday to my dear friend Emily! Miss you!
