Outfits of the Week: April 17, 2016

Work was crazy this week, but there were definitely some shining moments. LIKE THAT TIME I HUNG OUT WITH A CROCODILE. For real. Pics below.

Here’s what I wore! (P.S. Notice the better lighting? I switched my closet to the other room, which offers more light. Yay! Photo quality is still just okay, but I may switch to a better camera soon. No promises.)

Do I look like spring? That was my goal.

The sudoku dress made its triumphant return. For the longest time, it was a smidge too small, but it fits perfectly now so I want to wear it all the time. Plus, it’s hard to resist a dress with pockets!

Also, this was the day I held a crocodile named Darth Vader. No bigs.

It was an important week at the college where I work and, as part of that, they brought in a bunch of animals for the students to meet. Thankfully, I was able to get in on that and made friends with a lynx, lemur, ferret, skunk, and a crocodile (among other animals). Greatest day ever?

Outfit details

  • Dress: Modcloth
  • Cardigan: Old Navy
  • Shoes: Payless

It was a little chilly this day, so I needed tights. Sigh.

Outfit details

  • Dress: Forever 21
  • Tights: We Love Colors
  • Shoes: Payless

I’ve been dying to wear this new cardi/dress combo! The cardigan—loose, dolman shape—matches this white and mustard striped dress perfectly. It’s been sitting in my closet for weeks because I refused to wear this dress with black leggings or tights. So happy to wear it, and I got a lot of compliments on it!

  • Dress: Old Navy
  • Cardigan: Old Navy
  • Shoes: Payless

I felt like I had nothing to wear on Friday. It was one of those mornings spent trying tons of things on and getting mad at everything I tried on. I finally settled on this floral dress, which was okay, but not quite what I wanted to wear. You know? Clothes are complicated.

Outfit details

  • Dress: Fashion to Figure
  • Cardigan: Forever 21
  • Shoes: Payless

My favorite outfit was Wednesday’s yellow frock. I loved that it was monochromatic.

Here’s to a fashionable next week.

Outfits of the Week: March 13, 2016

Things I did this week:

  • Finally booked my honeymoon (ahhh!)
  • Pitched the launch of a Snapchat account for the College where I work
  • Attended my very first conference
  • Primered the dining room because apparently we’re going to be painting this house until I die

Here’s what I wore.

On Sunday, my husband and I celebrated my dog’s fourth birthday with family. Seriously. We had an adorable puppy party where we fed the dogs meatball cupcakes, while the rest of us enjoyed pizza and Boston Creme cake (so delicious). I wish I had a close-up of the shoes; I’ll try to take a photo next time I wear them.

Outfit details

  • Shirt: Old Navy
  • Leggings: Rainbow
  • Shoes: Payless

I love the print on this dress, but I wasn’t crazy about my outfit as a whole. I’m not sure the shoes really worked (even though I love them). Ah, well!

  • Tank: Old Navy
  • Tights: We Love Colors
