Some days, despite below freezing temperatures, a girl just wants to wear her favorite pink ankle pants. And sure her ankles complain a bit during photos, and you can' t tell if your co-workers think you're crazy or a  genius -- but you wear them anyway. Because one this day {full disclosure this was last week during a chilly 20 degree day -- today it's 60! Silly Cincinnati...} it was third gray day in a row and sometimes it takes a little pop of pink to get your day going.

At least for this girl it does...

This is one of those outfits I've been wearing and re-wearing a lot lately so it's about time it finally makes it to the blog! From work, dinner, drinks with friends, I've gotten a lot of milage out of this outfit. Switch out the black pants for jeans, swap the scarf for a necklace, change the shoes....you get the idea.

So after yesterday's post here I am with an outfit, hypocrite I know! These are actually from last week, but it's a perfect example of what I've been wearing lately. Black on mostly black + a scarf. Plus the sunglasses are great at hiding the fact that my eyes are more than likely bloodshot from less than 8 hours of sleep. How anyone functions on 5-6  hours regularly is beyond me. If I could I would give those people a medal, instead I'll just give them a shout out on the internet.

Back to the Grind

Life Lately 
The grind being school and my graduate capstone project.

I apologize if the things are a bit slow around here for the next month or so. My capstone project kicked off earlier this week which means when I'm not at work, I'm spending as many hours as I can at school. Plus my outfits haven't been particularly interesting this week either. Lots of black and layers which seems to be my go-to when sleep is minimal. Plus I know no one wants to see the bags under my eyes either.

Until next time....

A Little Lucky

It's totally weird {but also awesome} that I'm writing today's post!
A while back I was contacted by Lucky Magazine to be featured in their February issue.

While I'm fairly certain my response was a mixture of exclamation points and capitals, I wasn't sure how my photo was going to be used so I was eager to scan the magazine when it came in the mail.
If you happen to be a subscriber you can catch a glimpse of me page 66.

Thanks for the feature Lucky!
And if you're interested you can check out that outfit here.

The Magic of a Final Sale

Way back when, you know 3 months ago, I was salivating over these printed pants from the Limited. I was at the height of my printed pants obsession {of which I may not have come down from but that's a question for another day} and these were just calling my name. My more practical sister convinced me the pants weren't absolutely needed and so I regretfully left them on the rack.

But then last weekend the pants magically re-appeared on the final sale rack. And what do you know, I scored these lovelies for a steal at $4.99! Even if I only wear them once {which I wont, they're awesome} I'll have gotten my money's worth.

When Math Meets Fashion

Sometimes I wish outfit planning was an exact science. If I just take the time to put 3 pieces together, then they automatically will look good as an outfit. We all know that is hardly the case -- and to be honest, I was a little fearful that this outfit would be one of those that seemed like a great idea in concept but utterly failed when it was time to wear it. Luckily, I was completely wrong.

Maybe I should try to be wrong more...

It may be a new year, but I am definitely still gravitating towards some old favorites!

After wearing yoga pants and cozy sweaters for most of the last few weeks, I sat down the other night to plan some outfits now that work is {unfortunately} back in full gear. I've been meaning to re-wear this skirt, so it was first on my list for outfit ideas and the rest just came together pretty easily.
Comfy top, floral scarf, and animal print shoes? I think I could wear this all year!

While most bloggers are talking about the New Year and resolutions, this girl is still a bit stuck 2012. So I hope you don't mind one last outfit. This outfit actually got a decent amount of action over the holidays. I donned it see the Nutcracker with some of my girl friends and then wore it again to my family's Christmas Eve gathering. Sometimes a good {and comfortable} outfit deserve to be worn twice in a 72 hour span. Why else would anyone need febreeze?
