dotty, brown coats, and red cups

coat [wearing] 
coat: vince (this year's version)
hat: uniqlo
tights: free press
boots: old navy
bag: marc by marc jacobs

[three things]
1. I'm taking a little break tonight from holiday festivities to actually post on my bloggity-blog.  Also, my toes are frozen from our market segment ice rink holiday party.

2. These fleece-lined tights are the best ever.  And they're $7.97 at Nordstrom Rack.  You are welcome.

3. I went dress shopping last week for a work-holiday-cocktail-party dress and ended up buying purple coated jeans.  This is a bit of a logistical problem for what I'm going to wear tomorrow night, but a major upgrade for my jeans collection.

recap: november

recap bubble november budget [buying] 
one: eileen fisher silk tank via thredup: $60.
two: loft daisy chain infinity colorblock scarf: $21.
three: loft zip sweatshirt jacket: $59.
four: loft drop print henley shell: $33.
five: madewell perfect silk tunic: $67.

November total: $240.
and get nosy with a bunch of other blogger's budgets over hurrrr.

I had work-pants-that-can-be-worn-with-winter-boots and comfy-jackets-that-look-a-little-professional on my shopping list this month and I did much better with the latter.  I found a great jacket to replace my cream and gray quilted motos from grad school.  (You can see the cream one in it's heyday back in this post and gray in this old post).  And then I bought three tops because I'm a sucker for a good pattern and a mossy olive green.

dotty, shiny leggings, and otherwise business as usual

shiny leggings, liquid leggings, sandra dee leggings, dash dot dotty, wear to work, j.crew camille dress
[wearing]
jacket: zara (sim.)
dress: j.crew
leggings: ross (sim.)
boots: stuart weitzman
bag: phillip lim for target

creative: I definitely took full advantage of working in a casual office in a creative industry by wearing my superhero leggings.  They've only appeared on the blog once before because they're a little bit too Sandra-Dee-at-the-end-of-Grease.

young: Pleeeeeathah.  Leggings.

professional: Tweedy jacket, a black dress, and flat boots in the industry trademark "color."

dotty, non-jeans, and cuffs

tunic+joggers [wearing]
dress as top: tahari
joggers: wayf
flats: j.crew
tote: madewell
cuff: h&m

[three things]
1. Lately I've been wearing these joggers to work more.  Even though the bottom cuff looks pretty casual, the fabric dresses them up a bit.  This combination of fancy and slouchy is totally my thing lately.

2. And it makes me want to buy every single moto jacket and gray tunic from Loft's Lou&Grey line.  This could be trouble.

3. For some reason even though I can wear jeans any day of the week, I tend not to.  Black pants (even these casual ones) will always look more work-ready to me than jeans do.  And I'm still new(ish) to the company and still trying to convince people that I'm not a summer intern.  Blergh.

dotty, leopard maximums, and summer dresses

leopard and tweed [wearing]
dress: madewell
jacket: zara (sim.)
wedge boots: bcbgeneration
bag: phillip lim for target
  
[three things]
1. This is a summer dress.  As much as I want it to work for cold weather, I think it might need to pack it up with the sundresses.

2. I bought a couple of Zara jackets last year, but now they are all showing signs of wear.  I think it might be time to step up my jacket game and invest in some nicer ones.

3. My leopard print coat was hanging on my chair at work when I wore this dress (the one seen in this old post) and I was totally called out on wearing double leopard print.  I keep seeing awesome gray leopard print things, but I think I might already be at the maximum number of animal print things that you should have in your closet.

dotty, fancy flats, and lots of triangles

all the patterns [wearing]
cardigan: twelfth street by cynthia vincent (new version)
top: labworks for target
pants: silence and noise (sim.)
flats: j.crew
bag: phillip lim for target


creative: Triple patterns!  And all of them are triangle-ish.

young: About all those triangles...yyyyeah.

professional: Can pointy flats and a structured bag turn a comfy outfit into something more dressy?  Maybe on days with no meetings.
