dotty, sandwich ratios, and a new dress

patterned cardigan + dress [wearing]
cardigan: twelfth street by cynthia vincent (this year's version)  
dress: tahari
boots: stuart weitzman
bag: phillip lim x target

[three things]
1. I tried on a bajillion dresses last weekend and this one was the winner.  And it's greeeeen!  Okay, it's barely a non-neutral, but I think it's going to lead to some good dress+jacket+boots combinations this winter.

2. Slouchy boots.  I finally bought leather boots last year, so they get to make a comeback this year!  Pleather boots and salt really don't mix too well.

3. I'm having an amazing week for fun lunches--even though one of them was a work lunch about chairs, my sandwich had the perfect turkey-to-provolone ratio, so I'm counting it as a good lunch.   Anywho, I'm having lunch with my bestie today since we're working only a mile apart today.  Yay!  We're usually twenty miles apart at the lunching hour which is about nineteen too many to meet up.

dotty, yogging, and comfy pants

workday joggers [wearing]
jacket: zara
top: day birger et mikkelsen
pants: wayf (similar)
wedges: elie tahari (similar)
scarf: marc jacobs x target (similar)
bag: marc by marc jacobs

creative: There are certain types of "pants" that are questionable work attire.  (I'm looking at you leggings, sweatpants, and neon jeans!)  These fancy jogger pants wouldn't work in a lot of professional environments, but I work in an extra casual office where they are totally acceptable.

young: Elastic-waist pants can go way young.  Or way old.

professional: Wedges and a tweedy jacket definitely help these pants get dressed up for work.

dotty, a new hat, and looking incognito

octoberness [wearing]
coat: vince
jeans: joe's jeans
flats: old navy
bag: marc by marc jacobs
hat: lola hats

[three things]
1. Hat!  I've been looking for a felty gray hat and have come really close to buying a brown one at Target and a green one at Zara, but they weren't quite right.  And then the boy surprised my with this wonderfully oversized one for my birthday.

2. It's getting to that point where I don't want to take off my coat outside for more than about ten seconds.  #weakling

3. Spotted flats.

dotty, lightpoles, and museuming

dotty in LA [wearing]
dress: YAS via asos
sandals: gap
tote: madewell

[three things]
1. I heart museums.  I got an art history minor in undergrad pretty much because I like going to museums and am very good at matching paintings to painters.  Our trip to the Left Coast only involved two museums, but LACMA is pretty awesome.

2. Urban Light.

3. Palm trees.  Let's talk about how pretty they are.
