to the annual winter-break-high-school-friend-lunch.  i went with an outfit that i'm pretty sure i've worn before.  i really just wanted to wear this new hat.  i stopped to pick up a gift for the boy's sister and ended with a gift for my head.  if only this hat was warm.

dash of a roundup

it's retrospective time!

year_recap
january
it was cold.  i wore skirts and tights anyway.  and my hair was super long.
year_recap2
february
still cold.  and i heart boots.


year_recap3
march
i went through a black phase.  and i got my hairs cut!  yay, bob!  well, actually the stylist wasn't named bob. 


year_recap4
april
i stopped wearing quite so much black. 


year_recap5
may
i was all over the place.  seriously, these photos are from chicago, seattle, las vegas, and los angeles. 


year_recap6
june
i was in one place...at work.  so i swapped my jeans and boots for skirts and heels. 


year_recap7
july
i bought a slouchy dolman-sleeved jersey-thingy in california and then wore it all month.  


year_recap8
august
i finished up my summer jobby and my sister took my outfit photos for me.  


year_recap9
september
i returned to the midwest to attend my best friend's wedding (left photo) and start my penultimate semester of grad school. 


october
i got a dolman-sleeved jersey cocoon-cardigan that became the fall version of july's top.  and there was gray.  lots of gray.


year_recap11
november
i started the thirty for thirty challenge.  and i wore more gray.  and i went to school.  and the famous bloggy lace skirt joined my closet. 


year_recap12
december
i finished my thirty for thirty.  and i heart boots.  


for 2011 i'm making some closet resolutions:
color!
christmas brought me this clay-colored dress and i thrifted a tomato red skirt that looks like this one yesterday, so i'm off to a good start.
pattern!
florals, stripes, houndstooth, etc.  my sister started this one off by gifting me a houndstooth scarf.
texture!
the blogtastic lace skirt was surprisingly easy to remix and my tweed skirt was a thirty for thirty allstar, so this bodes well for the future.

dash of school

final review[wearing]
mustard jacket: brooklyn industries
striped tee underneath: gift from my mom (exactly)
big white scarf: souvenir from london (similar)
tweed skirt: thrifted
gray tights: target (similar)
awesome new boots: another gift from my awesome mother (exactly)


[going]
to our final studio review.  this actually happened on tuesday and so i've been recovering by sleeping and eating since then.  anyway, i worked with a partner (who also happens to be my grad school bestie), but she is not much for public appearances, so it's just me and the back of some heads pictured.  she said the day before that she was going to roll around in some charcoal.  and then she showed up in an all dark-gray outfit.  she's funny like that.

these photos are of me presenting our project with what appears to be a claw hand.  even with my odd hand gestures, the review went swimmingly.  and now, christmas!

final review

[previously on...] gray tights
i got two pairs of these gray tights two winters ago and they are somehow indestructible.

thirty|the recap


thirty|day THIRTY

[wearing]
sweater dress as top: thrifted [30]
tweed skirt: thrifted [30]
boots: ebay [30] similar
lace tights: apt. 9 via kohl's similar
necklace: charlotte russe (it's much lighter than the anthro one) 

oh em gee!  i finished my thirty outfits!  i didn't include nearly enough wool to make it through the winter without hibernating.  actually, hibernating sounds rather nice after this semester.  maybe just a really long nap or two.  anyway, congrats to all the other remixers out there!

thirty|day twenty-eight

[wearing]
that tweed skirt again: thrifted [30] similar
big shirt: thrifted [30] similar
big sweater: secondhand limited [30]
sweater tights: target 
gray boots: old navy [30]

these are totally pre-snow photos that i had forgotten about taking.  and it's really cold today, so badly-lit, kinda-fuzzy last-week photos it is!  this was totally one of those outfits that i really liked in person, but not in photographic form.  i wouldn't have thought to pair a big shirt and big sweater together, but the thirty for thirty remix brought the two into close closet proximity.
