Pete & Repeat

Just a few days left to enter the $80 MsDressy giveaway!

{delias sweater (tres old) | f21 top (so similar!) | UO jeans | payless boots (crazy similar) | inpink ring}

So, you could say that I've been mildly obsessed with my red jeans and gold polka dot top lately; specifically, wearing them together.  I'm loving this combo so much that I when I reached for this outfit a few days ago, I didn't even realize that I wore almost the same exact outfit just a few days before.  So, after meeting Pete last week, please meet his nearly identical brother, Repeat.  (Yeah, my outfits are named after guys & commonly used words, but only when it suits my post title).

Find me here today.

Deep Thoughts About Deep Frying

p.s. - There'll be another one going up tomorrow.  Be sure to check back for it soon!

{marshall's dress (similar) | joyce leslie cardi | payless tights (similar) & shoes (cute option) | gifted watch | kohls necklace}

As I type this I'm sitting in my workout clothes trying to muster up the willpower to exercise, while simultaneously watching a show about deep fried everything.  All it's really doing is giving me a craving for deep fried butter...till I look at these photos and remember how much these already size large tights squeeze without the help of a blob of fat-fried fat.  And so I remind myself that I love my wardrobe too much to jeopardize it by outgrowing it due to my lack of motivation and love of lard.  TV off, workout on.

Accessory Anomaly

{target blazer | f21 blouse | UO jeans | steve madden boots | h&m scarf (old) | vintage necklace (similar)}

Would you believe me if I told you I got a wind machine over the weekend?  Well, I did one better.  I got Mother Nature's wind machine - aka...uh, wind.  When it wasn't giving me hair-blown-in-face-mustache (which my boyfriend was all too happy to point out each and every time it happened), or making me shiver down to the very core of my soul, we actually manged to get a few shots that made it seem as if my crazy, windblown hair was intentional.

I inherited this amazing vintage necklace from my Gramma a couple years ago.  I love it, but it never seemed to go with anything I wore - it always gave the outfits a way-too-fancy vibe (and if you know me, you know I am anything but).  But when I put this outfit on, I instinctively reached for it, knowing full well that gold polka dots mixed with pearls and rhinestones is practically a recipe for fancy.  Yet somehow, the combination reads more laid back than lavish.  I cannot explain the anomalies of nature, people; I just wear them.

Party with me here.

Snow Disappointing

{target sweater (similar) | ON vest & tights | h&m shorts (cute option on super sale!) | steve madden boots | f21 necklace (similar)}

So, I was about to publish a whole post about how disappointed I am that just when it warmed up enough to melt the skanky snow that's been hanging out for the past few weeks, it goes and snows again.  Like, on the very same day that the other snow finally vanished. But January is a tough enough month to endure without me chiming in to complain about it.  So for a little change of pace, I bring you My List of Positive Things About January:

Positive Thing About January #1:  It's still Christmasy.  My house looks like Santa's workshop for at least half of January (ok, usually a little more).  I just love the fun decorations, and it's still kind of sort of acceptable to have them up throughout the month.  Come February, that crap won't fly.

Positive Thing About January #2:  It's chilly enough to consider purchasing these.  Anyone own a pair?  Good?  Bad?  Ugly?

Positive Thing About January #3:  Sometimes the snow has little ice crystals sitting on top of it = nature's own glitter.  As a female who enjoys sparkly things, I appreciate this.

Positive Thing About January #4:  I get to wear lots of cozy layers.  I know I complain about the cold, but I admit that about 3/4 of the way through summer I'm really missing the option to top my outfit off with a thick, chunky scarf, a cool pair of boots, or an oversized cable knit sweater.

Positive Thing About January #5:  The cold weather provides a perfect excuse to snuggle up on the couch, whip up a batch of hot chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn, and guiltlessly enjoy hour after hour of Shameless on dvd.

*Also, I'm a finalist in a creative photo contest.  If you're the voting type and you'd like to help me win, please click here and then "like" my photo.  Big virtual hugs to all who do!*

Blathering Blogger in Black & Blue

{target jacket | pacsun dress (similar) | payless booties (similar)}

I was looking through some old photos and came across these ones that I forgot to post back in October.  (#shamefuloversight)  Notice the lush, colorful foliage in the background and the lack of utter frozenness on my face...neither of which I can say have been present in any of my photos of late.  These pictures just scream slightly warmer weather.  Which is actually quite fitting, since today (mercifully) feels like a lovely, crisp autumn day.  But you know, the scary kind where you know that winter and its bitingly bitter, bleak, brisk days of brutality are just around the bend.  Apparently these are the very same days that make alliteration irresistible, too.

Happy Little Dots

{gap sweater (similar) & jeans (similar) | f21 button up (similar), rings, & necklace (lookalike)}

Well, it looks like I've begun unconsciously matching my outfits to the weather.  That's great when it's sunny and bright outside, but can look a little depressing when it's cold and grey.  I don't want to look cold and grey...or depressed.  At least my small dose of gold polka dots make up for it.  It's tough to look blue while wearing grey if I've got happy little dots peeking out from underneath.  Remember that.  They are words to live by, kids.

Come join me here.

Walking Advertisement

{target skirt (so similar!), sweater (similar), blazer, & scarf | ON tights | aldo boots (on sale!)}

I just realized that about 70% of my outfit is from Target.  I'm so branded up, I almost feel as conspicuous as a Nascar driver with sponsor logos emblazoned all over his uniform...but at least this is a little more subtle than walking around with a giant bullseye on my back....or chest and forearms, as the case may be.

Join the party.

In a Frozen State

{h&m shorts & sweater (similar) | f21 hat | payless tights | delias boots (crazy similar) | kohls bracelet (similar) & necklace}

Please excuse my pursed lip, sour lemon expression in these photos.  I think my face just froze like that when I took off my coat.  I was just. so. cold.  I was trying really hard not to be; I was thinking warm thoughts, concentrating on not shivering, and I mean, I was even wearing a leopard print hat.  If the presence of faux leopard can't keep me toasty, I don't know what can.  But when living in NJ, sometimes you just have to grin and bear it....or in my case grimace, groan, grumble, and grouse....that's just as good, right?

On another note, if you haven't already signed up for Crowdtap, then you are just plain cray cray.  Answer some questions and then you can get free stuff, like an Old Navy dress.  Amongst other free stuff I've received?  A bikini, workout clothes, a whole party pack of bbq seasonings, and amazon gift cards.  Seriously, what are you waiting for?  Click here to sign up.
(This portion was in no way sponsored by Crowdtap.  I am a member and get perks when I refer others to sign up.  But so does everyone else.)
