4/21/11


So much for planning. I meant to wear and post this outfit yesterday {obviously that didn't happen}. But I was abruptly woken up {twice no less} by the severe weather siren. You know had there actually been severe weather I would have understood been thankful, but no. Just a bit of rain and little branches blowing around. If anything, I was able to determine the location of the said siren. Right.Outside.My.Window. Yep. No way I was going to miss that.


What I am trying to say is that instead of wearing this yesterday, I opted to get an extra 45 minutes of sleep, skipped washing my hair and threw on something I wore before. See the reason I was/am excited for this outfit is because I wanted to show off this necklace. I mean how cute is it {answer: way cute}? My friend Linley sent it to me. And if you have a little extra time on your hands, be sure to check out her Etsy Store for more adorable stuff.

Pin It!

  8. Hi! I just dropped by (sort of randomly).... but I have to say - love your style! In fact, I think I just had to wipe a little drool off my keyboard from scrolling around and looking at all of the pencil skirts you wear! Pencil skirts are my fave! And I love the bookcase you pose next too - I'll add it to my dream list. :)

    Great blog! Looking forward to reading and seeing more!

  12. K my mouth made a super awkward sudden laughing sound at "answer: way cute." But it is adorable and I especially love it with your peachy mustard colors! Seriously I thought everyone had already done every possible color combo in the book, but this is an original for me. And how could I not love it (trick question: I could not NOT love it)?!

  13. The turquoise with the mustard is such an unexpectedly beautiful color combo!!

  15. Thanks Ang! I swear there must be a siren in Hyde Park Square cause I've never heard a siren that freakin' loud!

  16. Thanks dear! Also thanks for figuring out what color this shirt is. I was kinda torn between orange and cantaloupe...I think sherbet is best.

  17. Well thank you! I do have a think for pencil skirts, it's a sickness actually :)

  18. Hey Jenny! Glad to have another Cincinnatian around here!

  19. If you could see me right now I'm patting myself on the back. Monk is giving me credit for a new color combo. Dont.Mind.If.I.Do.

  20. This always happens to me when I try to plan out my outfits in advance! Something happens and I end up really bummed. I find I have much better luck just going with the flow in the morning and picking what fits my mood (and how much time I have!). That said, it's a very cute outfit, so I'm glad you got to wear it! That skirt is a great unexpected color.

  21. I love the vibrant JCrew skirts with the rich wool; you've pushed me from a JCrew skirt admirer to a very likely future buyer! Great outfits!

  22. Wow, I love all these colors together! You always do such a great job in that area. And again, you always look so put together. It fascinates me how you manage to do it every day. I always feel like a hot mess.

  23. Liz you look like you stepped right out of the pages of J.Crew! That color combo is inspired and I love how the blues pop off the yellows and oranges! So, so gorgeous!

    And I've been eyeing Linley's store - love the turquoise necklace :)
