Monday's Mix: Madam Librarian

     Sunday's blouse.                                 Wednesday's jumper.
Thursday's tights.                                    Sunday's heels.

Happy halloween out there.  Today I maaaybe got dressed up for the holiday. 

Is it a costume?
Is it a normal outfit?
No one knows.
And I'll just keep it that way, thanks.  While shushing those noisy kids over in the periodicals.

ok friends, here you go...  

Monday Mix

Oct 30, 2011


Tulle jacket via ModCloth.  Frenchi tank.  Mossimo blouse.  J.Crew pant.
Seychelles heels.  Vivi Dot Paisley Foliage Sutro Park necklace. H&M bag.
Circle necklace: Anthro.  Wool hat: unknown.

So really this hat is a fedora.  I just turned up the front brim a bit to give it a more hipster feel.
And there you have it.  My hat-wearing secret for the day.

Hey, you gotta restart somewhere.

Jeans and Blazer Day

J.Crew blazer and menswear sweater.  Pilcro jeans.
H&M scarf.  F21 boots.

And here we have a weekend errand-running outfit.  

You're right, Miss N-
It's a great combo.  You just feel so pulled together all day, even if it took you less than 5 minutes to get ready.
So thanks for the inspiration, friend.

Fall Layers

Sweater and blouse: Anthro.  Express shorts.  H&M tights.
Hobo International clutch.  Wedges: ModCloth.

One of the things I love about layering is that it allows me to put my own individual twist on an ensemble.
I enjoy a little quirk or crazy now and then in my outfits, thank you very much.

I'm sure you've picked up on that by now.

I'm Lucky Oversized is In...

J.Crew menswear sweater.  Banana Republic menswear shirt.  Gap skirt.
Seychelles boots.  Belt: Anthropologie.  Socks:  Target.

I've been reaching for the Mister's side of the closet an awful lot these days (thanks, dear), which has everything to do with me being bored of all my clothes.  Yup, ALL of them.  
Well, except this skirt.  Which my mom bought for me when I was in 7th grade.  
Thanks Mom.  You picked a good one.

I need some retail therapy.  Fast.  
Who wants to go with me?  (Your treat? Awesome.)

Shades of Gray

Aren't crisp and sunny fall days the best?

Tap Shorts

Top:  Urban Outfitters.  Shorts and jacket: Nordstrom.
Lucky Penny bag.  Sofft heels.

So I've been working on choreographing a dance for our performing company with my dance partner-in-crime. (Which is way more fun than making up dances solo, fyi.)  
The piece has that retro Broadway flair to it with some old-school tap styling mixed in. 

And there you have it- the inspiration for this outfit.  Tap shorts, pearls, and an art-deco patterned top.   
Best part: I wore it straight to dance class.  

Well, sans heels.
and pearls.
but close enough.
