thrift gold.

This outfit was kind of a mish-mash that worked out unexpectedly well.

What I'm wearing:
Blazer: Target
Top: thrifted
Shirt: ThredUp
Tights: Target
Shoes: vintage Ferragamo, thrifted

I thrifted these vintage Ferragamo heels (Italian leather, too!) for a grand total of $18 in a huge antique/thrift store in Ann Arbor, MI back in October. I'm surprised it's taken me so long to blog about them, given how proud & excited I was that I found them! And they fit like a glove. All they needed was a little love (aka shoe polish)—they're in really great condition. 

I think this outfit will go in the outfit repeat rotation.

double bows.

You can never go wrong with black, red, and polka dots.

What I'm wearing:
Blazer: Gap
Blouse: ModCloth (similar in sleeveless)
Pants: Old Navy
Flats: Old Navy
Necklace: Beltway Vintage

Every time I visited Analog I'd notice this necklace and have to talk myself out of buying it. But, when I went there a couple weekends ago, it was on sale for $5! And emerald is my birthstone, so it must have been meant to be.

denim & red.

This was one of those outfits I planned out in my head and it didn't turn out exactly how I wanted to, but close enough. I also wore this out in DC when it was 25 degrees and I should've added about 3 more layers.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Tulle
Leggings: Old Navy
Boots: DSW

I bought this dress on Cyber Monday when Tulle was having their $12 dress sale and even though shipping took forever, I'm pretty happy with my purchases (I got another dress as well).

I was also planning on having much better photos of this outfit, since my friend Katie & I went to the Botanic Gardens, but we both completely forgot—which is funny because she's the one who took the majority of my outfit photos in college.

professional lookin'.

Oh hey, I finally got my hair cut! Feels good man.

010515x1 010515x2 010515x3
What I'm wearing:
Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack
Blouse: Gap
Skirt: gift, old
Belt: thrifted
Tights: Target
Flats: Old Navy
Necklace: Urban Outfitters (old)
Eyeshadow: Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette

It's highly likely I've worn a similar variation of this outfit before but this cardigan just goes so well with this skirt (and it's a subtle pattern mix). Pencil skirt + button down + cardigan = instant professional look. 

Also this isn't a great photo of my makeup but I got the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette for Christmas and ermagerd it's amazing. And it smells like chocolate. You really can't beat that.

plaid & dots.

I always end up posting my casual Friday outfits on random days of the week that aren't Friday...

010215x1 010215x2
What I'm wearing:
Cardigan: American Apparel (old)
Shirt: H&M
Dress (worn as skirt): H&M
Belt: Francesca's
Tights: Target
Boots: Etienne Agnier (gift)
Scarf: Chick's Picks by Hillary

Plaid & polka dots, two of my favorite things. I bought this scarf back in November at a boutique event that I went to with a bunch of coworkers, and I've certainly gotten my money's worth in terms of times I've worn it! It's so warm & goes with everything.
