Daily Outfit - Jen - 03/16/11

This photo lies, because there is a key component missing: my invisibility scarf that I wore ALL DAY! The special one that Kate made for ME!

This is a no good, stinkin', lyin' photo.

Hey, look - I'm wearing a skirt.

My outfit one year ago.

Top: H&M
Skirt: Old Navy
Scarf (invisible): Gift (Thanks, Kate!)
Flats: Steve Madden via DSW

Daily Outfit - Jen - 03/10/11

So, it goes without saying that I love this tunic. I wear it probably once a week, no? Anyway, look at me! I changed it up! I was in love with this outfit. I am in love with this outfit. I'm going to wear it again soon, and you can't stop me.

Well, I guess you could stop me if you really wanted to, but look at my face. I am so happy! Would you really want to steal that joy from me? Really?

Cardigan: H&M
Tunic: H&M
Jeans: Martin + Osa
Heels: Nine West

Dear Kate

I've had this pair of slacks sitting on our entryway table for probably 3 weeks. So far, seeing them sitting there everyday has not motivated me to drop them off at the dry cleaner's. Neither has the fact that I haven't been able to wear them for 6 months been any motivation whatsoever.

I think something is wrong with me?

At least one* of us is normal.


* That would be you.

Daily Outfits - Kate - various days

It's been so long I don't even remember what days I wore these. But here they are.

(scarf + tights = <3)

(I'm really going to have to repeat that one someday when I haven't spent the whole day crying. It was too good to just let go like that...)

(You know spring is just around the corner when my long cotton skirt appears! This outfit is pretty much a repeat, too.)

Dear Jen

Thank you so much, my dear, for holding down the fort while I'm off-kilter.

If anybody wants to catch up on why I've been gone, feel free to check out I'll spare you the drama.

I don't know if I'm really "back" yet, but we'll see. Add a head-cold to the mix, and right now I just want to be at home in pyjamas, snuggling my kitten.

Thanks for hanging in there.

Daily Outfit - Jen - 03/08/11

Today, I felt like I was channeling Miami Vice. I don't even mean that in a bad way! When I pulled my vertically-striped blazer and horizontally-striped top out of my closet, I knew it could be nothing short of glorious.

To you nay-sayers, you've surely considered the other way to channel Miami Vice, right? In a thong bikini. I did you a kindness, today.

Blazer: H&M
Top: H&M
Necklace: Gift (Thanks, Thao!)
Jeans: Nordstrom
Wedges: Target

Daily Outfit - Jen - 03/07/11

We've had some work done to our backyard. No more flowerbed, or more accurately, no more dirtbed. Now it's just dirt (not in bed form) and a work in progress, much like my wardrobe.

I'd totally planned to wear a skirt and heels today, but to what I am sure is no one's surprise - jeans again! You can't take me out of them, people.

My outfit (about) one year ago.

Blazer: Tulle
Scarf: Gift (Thanks, Kate!)
Blouse: Old Navy
Jeans: Nordstrom Rack
Boots: Target

Closet Craving: Women's Mossimo® Peony Pumps

I'm feeling greedy and want both. At the pricepoint, I think I could justify the purchases.

Blush Patent: $24.99

Cognac: $24.99

Dear Kate

As if my lack of posting hasn't been any indication, I've been supremely uninspired lately. I think I'm okay at putting normal-looking outfits together, but obviously I'm no fashionista. Neither you nor I have ever claimed to be, right? Hence, our blog.

Anyway, I've said this before and will say it again: I know what good and bad editorials look like and can style a shoot if needed, but good lord, I cannot get creative with my own wardrobe! I'm bummed. Not really, actually. That's pretty dramatic, but you know what I mean.

I cleaned out my closet this weekend - I specifically targeted clothes that I do not wear, but this morning I found myself thinking, "Damn. Now I have no clothes." What difference did the clean-out make? I never wore that stuff anyway!

Soooo, in my desperation to find an excuse for my lackluster sartorial performance, I've decided that I need more slacks. I think I'm a pant-lady and not a skirt-lady, even though I would really like to be a skirt-lady*. I'm just going to be honest, here: I just don't shave my legs often enough to wear skirts regularly. Sue me. But not really, because then I would actually be bummed.


* You are a freaking cute skirt-lady.

The Spoils: J. Crew

Hey, everyone! Check out how gorgeous I am in my new bikini. I'm ready for Florida!

Wildbloom Halter Top

Oh, look how tan I am, too.

Wildbloom Ruffle Hipster

Cannot wait to wear this to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Why else would I have bought a new swimsuit, right?

If you're interested in being my twin this summer, the suit is linked below.

Dear Kate

I am sickity sick sick sick. Wah. :(

I wish that my invisibility shawl was large enough to hide under!
