GUILTY

Saturday, December 12, 2009
Last night was Maurices' splurge party! I brought along a few of my friends and it was great to have a little GNO while all our husbands were at school (boo). There was also talk of a snow storm so we headed out of there pretty quickly... I'm not a very competent driver in the snow....for reals. But I did get a sequin blazer that I'm still a little iffy on.... I'll show you guys later ;).

I'm so guilty of repeat outfits lately, hence the lack of outfit posts! But there's something about BF jeans and cardi that is so appealing when you're tired and feel like blah. At least this is a little different with the beanie (can you tell how much I love this beanie?!?), BF jeans, and the "effortless" half-tuck of the cardi.

Wearing SLiM Motif beanie (courtesy of SLiM Motif), Collection B faux leather jacket ($55), husband's Heritage 1981 cardigan ($20), DownEast Basics tee (gift from my MIL), husband's belt ($10 that I bought for him 2 years ago), Aeropostale jeans ($20), and MIA brogues ($43).


Update: Just wanted to clarify... Yes, my ankles were freezing! I have a thing about wearing socks when going shopping...especially when I am going to try on shoes. I always make sure to have a pair of socks in my bag when I do go shoe shopping. But, yes...I am still cold looking at this picture.
