Saturday Morning

Nothing super special about today’s outfit, but there’s something really soothing about waking up [semi-] early on a Saturday morning, grabbing your laptop or a book, and heading to the local coffeeshop. It’s wonderful in the warmer weather to sit on a patio and just people watch, but also in the winter-y months to pull yourself out of bed, put on your coziest hat and run out the door to grab that warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate. This time of year in D.C., some days it’s still just kind of cool enough in the mornings to be able to wear jeans and a light cardi (which you will have to tear off by noon):

Don’t let me fool you. I’m actually actually working today, not going off to some coffee shop to read leisurely. =/

This is one of my favorite outfits. It’s simple and easy, looks great, and perfect for a dinner out with one (or a few) of your favorite people. If I could add one more piece of jewelry to this outfit it would probably be a mid-length gold chain. But seeing as how I can’t find one, just pretend that there’s one there and we’ll both be happy. =)

Lazy or just Simple?

Probably a little bit of both.  I’m sorry about the lack of posts, I’ve been having a rough last week or so and I’m not so sure it’s going to get any better soon, so please bear with me. In going with this lazy/simple theme, I was too lazy to step out of the apartment for photos so I decided to take them on my very small, unexciting balcony.

The photos, surprisingly, aren’t bad. The color is kind of gross, but that’s more to do with me and my inability to take outdoor photos and then correct in post-processing. You may see a lot my posts out here for a while. I should buy a plant or something to make the metal door at least a little bit more interesting.

This is a very casual and simple EOTD. Again, I was feeling lazy. I generally don’t like capris on petite women, but the boyfriend pegged crops are really growing on me and these GAP skimmers fit pretty darn well in 00P. I also decided to pair them with my Dolce Vita wedges. The leg line doesn’t look all that great now that I look at these photos, but oh well, I tried. Next time, I’ll try a different shoe.
