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.
