Where: Teaching at school today, plus we had a huge MLK Assembly.  After school we had a big meeting with the district big-wigs.  Suffice it to say, a long day at school.


Chunky emerald open cardigan: Urban Outfitters

Beaded, ruffled dress: Urban Outfitters

Skinny black woven belt: H&M

Brown tights: Spanx

Brown boots: J.Crew

Pearl studs: purchased from a street vendor in Taipei.

Nail polish: OPI, My Private Jet

Details:  I’ve been waiting to wear this outfit and loved it SO much that I am kind of wishing I had saved it for tomorrow.  Tomorrow night is my wine club with my best girlfriends and it would have been fun to wear a little longer for something fun like that.  I’ll have to come up with something equally special for tomorrow, I suppose.  Aw shucks.

I was having a yucky shopping day with Matthew at UO over the weekend until I found this little number on the clearance rack.  Matthew worked an inventory there last week and we had use of a one time only 40% discount so of course I wanted to find something fantastic.  I was about to give up when husband urged me to keep searching.  I saw these ruffles peaking out of a packed rack, pulled it out and I was in love.  I immediately had an epiphany about this chunky sweater that I had seen earlier and my favorite boots and an outfit was born.  Sometimes it’s as complicated and as simple as all that.
