Where: After spending most of the day sacked out watching Netflix, the hubs and I got ready and searched for a table at a local coffee house to do some work.  Number of coffee houses visited: 4.


Jean jacket: LOFT

Dress: Target

Woven black belt: H&M

Royal blue tights: Spanx

Grey/black oxfords: Urban Outfitters

Handbag: Vintage Coach, thrifted via Urban Outfitters

Details: I have officially thrown my proverbial hat in the ring on this No Pants Challenge, inspired by fellow fashion blogger Hayley of The Cheap Girl in a Chic World. I was just as silly about recording my outfits in high school and gave myself lots of little rules and challenges like this one.  Throughout most of high school, my rule was a dress or skirt every Monday.  Some weeks I would challenge myself to skirts or dresses for a whole week at a time.  No wonder I’m so enthralled by the world of fashion blogging!  

Today’s outfit was inspired by a love of the print of this dress.  I initially wanted to pair it with a new chunky green cardigan, but am saving that for another outfit later this week.  I usually try not to go too matchy, but the tights were calling to me and I couldn’t say no.  I adore my jean jacket and put it with just about everything at least once.  These oxfords were on sale at UO and I’ve been looking for some for awhile.  Excited to pair them with rolled up jeans.  

Check out Hayley’s cute blog for her no pants ensembles and links to other bloggers who are taking on the challenge.  (Click the link above or the button on the side bar.) It’s been fun to see what everyone comes up with!
