One of Three

I made a promise to myself that I would only buy three sweaters this fall and winter season. So far, I’m doing OK, but it’s only October. It will be interesting to see how I handle the end of season sweater sales, especially since I would love to get my hands on more of these J.Crew Tippi sweaters.  I already have already purchased sweater #2 (which I will show in a later post), but I’m thinking long and hard about sweater #3. I’m pretty sure I want it to be a big and cozy cowl neck sweater. I saw a great one at the Theory outlet but I convinced myself at the time that it was overwhelmingly big for my small frame. However, now that I’ve left it behind, I’m having second thoughts.

I purposely left out the jewelry in this outfit. You might find this hard to believe, but I like the slight masculinity that the lack of jewelry gives off (yes, that was sarcasm :P); the three-quarter sleeves and the pop of color of the sweater helps balance it out a little bit.

You can’t really see much of my feet, but I’m actually wearing Coach wedge boots. They’re a perfectly classic almond toe, that is just the perfect height I want in a wedge boot for work. I’m generally not a fan of Coach handbags, but I have to admit, whoever is designing their boots is doing a pretty impressive job.

Day Six

 I’ve been trying to come up with different ways to style this pussy-bow / neck-tie blouse:

 Today is day six of my 80 hour marathon work week. I’m not feeling too bad yet even though I do look a little sleepy in the last photo (it was 6:30am!), but it’s usually after I’ve gone about two weeks without a day off is when I start to get super tired.

I know I haven’t had any EOTD posts in a long while (and I see some readers have protested by un-following me), but along with not having the time (it’s dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home from work), I’m also really trying to figure out what I want to do with this blog — and my life for that matter! I’ve hit such an impasse in my life, and it’s really been illuminated by watching all my friends “grow up” and settle down and have seemingly decided what they wanted out of life while I sit and watch from the sidelines. It’s really a very strange and trying place to be, to say the least.

A Little Romance

I know, I know. Ankle-straps shorten the leg line. But I couldn’t help myself. There’s something about a sexy mary-jane that can really change the feel of an outfit. I fell in love with these Nine West platforms.  They are so pretty on the feet.
