my coral bathrobe

dress: Target
sheer thing: vintage
belt: Target
tights: Hue
wedges: Old Navy clearance
lotus necklace: [un]possible cuts    

I have to admit that within the past year I have finally come to appreciate comfy clothes and changing into pajamas after a grueling day at work. I never got this concept before. Truly. The little girl who longed to play dress up, but had nothing worth dressing up in was all encompassing and I really had no idea why anyone would want to waste their money on ugly shapeless, albeit comfortable, sweatpants. Recently though I have clued in. I bought a bright coral, fluffy, soft bathrobe last month and it is seriously my favorite article of clothing..."clothing." I put it on as soon as I get home and am more than a little sad that bathrobes are not acceptable outside of the house. I love it that much.

That being said, I got dressed in this today and I have nothing planned beyond hitting the grocery store and making this. I don't need an occasion to dress up and I've said this many times. This caftan thing is as close to a bathrobe as I can get away with, leaving the house. Though my fluffy, coral one will be the first thing I put on when I get home.

not enough layers

dress: H&M
skirt: Nordstrom Rack
boots: Seychelles
necklace: Premier Jewelry gift
sacred heart ring: unpossible cuts

This was a grey, overcast day. I am so layered up here. Tights and socks with the boots. Dress and skirt with a top underneath both. Cardigan and I wore a jacket. Brrrrrr! Getting dressed in the morning because I am often so cold that there doesn't seem to be enough layers to keep me warm.

dress: Target clearance
fur collar: H&M
tights: Old navy
Jeffery Campbell platforms
necklace: gift
jacket: GAP clearance
belt: H&M

I am very excited that I learned how to automatically have pictures post with a uniform width. Sadly, it only highlights how mediocre my camera phone is. sigh. 

I felt like I should be yodeling and climbing a mountain with a goat. Between the hair and the fur and the sweet, demure dress...this outfit was a bit costume-y, which I like. It's hard to tell with these crappy photos but the tights have little red polka dots on them. There is no way I was going to not like this outfit...polka dots, pleats, sheer. Oh how I love girly details!

austin bright

tshirt: Parts and Labor (gift)
skirt: resale
cardigan: Target
ring:Melanie Lynn Jewelry
earrings: gift
boots: Seychelle's sale

I love finding ways to dress down dressy clothing. Party dresses, sequin anything I refuse to reserve these items for special occasions. Clothing is meant to be worn. So for a day of lunch date, errands, and spray painting I, of course, went with a colorful sequin skirt. Happy, happy, happy!

a resolution by any other name...

dress: Rory Becca for Forever 21
top: H&M
cardigan: J Crew
flats: Target
necklace: Premier Designs Jewelry (Xmas gift)  

New Year's for me isn't so much about specific resolutions. Rather, I view it as a fresh start to get on track. Pick back up all the pieces I have let fall over the year. It's a time to evaluate and refocus my energies where I feel is most beneficial. Resolutions are meant to be broken for most people, so I don't bother making them. Instead, I remember how much satisfaction and joy I get from the creative outlet of my blog and I make it a priority to find time to take photos and post entries. It is appropriate that this is the first outfit I post this year. It is not a fall or winter outfit at all, it screams spring. However, I have worn it several times this year and never managed to get a photo of it. Finally getting around to that...among other things.
Happy New Year friends!
