Last Casual Friday

Sunday, December 19, 2010
I wore this on Friday but didn't have time to post it because Chaser and I were packing and getting ready to leave for Sac-town....and we're here!!!!!!! Longest 6 hours ever. I love the guy and all but when he listens to Harry Connick, Jr., I'm like "who are you?" (He's my boyfriend, duh. My 5 year-old niece gets sooo annoyed when I call Chase my boyfriend. She's all "He's NOT your boyfriend. He's your HUSBAND!!" Then I tell her he's my boyfriend and my husband and that confuses her cute little mind even more. So back to the outfit..)

Anyway, this past Friday was my last day at my job....because I got a NEW ONE!!!!!!!!!! HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!! (I don't use the word "holla" in real life but I thought it fit in this context.) It's a salary-paying-with-benefits job...like better than what Chase would make after he graduates. I'm officially a grown-up. The best part about that job is it has NOTHING to do with what I graduated with:  political science. Blegh. I'll tell you more about it later. Maybe.

Okay, seriously, back to the outfit. I wore this all buttoned up and prim and proper in the morning. But then I didn't like how it was loose-fitting so I unbuttoned it and lowered my necklaces and I like it a lot better (see below). Also, those are TWO necklaces. You like? I love it. It gives you double bling.

If you haven't yet, you still have four days to enter to win this Mulberry-inspired bag! I suggest you do as many entries as you can because there are over 1,000 entries.... I know. I'm a big deal.

  3. I actually like the buttoned-up version better (although I like both!). The heels are adorable, too!

    Keep up the great work on your blog. I love checking it every day!

  7. New job! Two Necklaces! Harry Connick Jr! Best post ever? possibly so.

    Love that brown sweater thing, too. But not as much as your new, lovely sounding job.

    congrats on the new job, that is very very exciting!!

  13. I couldn't even tell that it was a double necklace! I like it buttoned and unbuttoned. It just depends on which attitude you want to have for the day. Either way, I love it. Did I mention that I love it?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Congrats on the job! So exciting :-D Fabulous necklace and coat.

  15. CONGRATS ON THE NEW JOB<3! I can't wait to hear all about it! I am absolutely in love with this outfit! Your necklace layering is genius! You look amazing with your hair up in a high bun like that too :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Woohoo - congrats on your new job! (I don't say woohoo IRL either but you had set a precedent that I thought I would follow).

    Loving the double necklaces with the denim shirt - a great contrast and way to make it feel more special. You, as always, rock.

  19. love this outfit! that sweater is awesome. also, i do like the double bling with the buttoned up shirt (: hope sac-town (sacremento maybe?) is great. and congrats on the new job!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love how you totally dress up the denim on denim with the fancy necklaces and colored pumps!! So pretty! Doubling up the necklaces is genius. And I think I like it both ways - all buttoned up and unbuttoned. All buttoned up, you look like a J.Crew model - unbuttoned you still look like a J.Crew model - just more relaxed :).

    My job for the past six years has nothing to do with either of my majors - history & foreign affairs. But it has paid me a good salary and benefits!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. And I meant to add a congratulations on your new job!! Congratulations, that is soooo awesome!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Denim craze... =P I actually really like how the necklaces were right under the collar, but I would go crazy and not be able to breathe, so I get how thats uncomfortable =)
    I can totally imagine you going "hes my boyfriend AND my husband" and while she has this question mark on her face you walk away, thinking "MUAHAHAHH" xD
    I know you aren't evil like that, but it sounded funny in my head.. =P

  24. I lovelovelove this outfit! SO much. The necklaces look amazing (I've been trying to layer necklaces lately because I love the look, but find none of mine really work together very well. Must fix this asap!) I like both ways (buttoned up tight & the looser laid back look!) - very cute!

  30. oh i love this outfit!
    the necklace and heels make such statement!
    and i like your jacket a lot =)

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is one of my favorite outfits so far! (Actually, that's pretty much a lie because all of your outfits are my favorites and I can't be biased and just choose one) But this one because you make the whole denim on denim thing work. I actually like it prim and proper, but when you unbuttoned it and lowered the necklaces, it works even more, haha.

    Congrats on the job! :) And political science? That's one of my least favorite classes! Well, maybe because it's a lecture class and I hate lectures. I always fall asleep...

  32. Congrats on the new job! Yay for income (and benefits)! And I really love this outfit. Definitely a favorite. Can't decide if I like the button up or button down better. The button up feels "fashionable" and the button down feels "stylish." Take your pick. They're both super adorable.

  33. Hey, congratulations on the job! That's fantastic.

  38. Hooray for new jobs! I'm totally loving this look! You're rocking the denim on denim, and that necklace is totally blingin =P

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh I have always been a fan of denim on denim, and my dear you have mastered it! <33

    ReplyDelete
  40. Okay, I have to disagree with a lot of you...I like the necklace and UNbuttoned look best. The buttoned denim shirt with collar necklace looks a little too stuffy or something.

    On the other hand, I think the unbuttoned look is sexy. I would maybe even wear the necklace a little higher with the unbuttoned collar so it falls right at the first button.

    Are either of you from Sacramento? I grew up in Folsom.

  41. Congrats on the new job!!!!! Love the outfit!

  42. Congrats on your "adult" job! :D I started my adult job a year ago and it's a lot better than going to school :p In my case, because I'd rather work than study :p

  43. I like the necklace on looser.

    Congrats on the new job! HOLLA fits very very well.

    Boyfriend for life! One of my college professors has been married for 50 years she still calls her husband her boyfriend. I think it's cute :)

  46. I think this looks awesome all buttoned up with the necklace right at the collar AND looser. Look at that - two great options!

  47. congrats on the new job!!!! holla! haha

  48. My wife still gets confused everytime I tell her I have a girlfriend--and of course it's her! She's never able to remember that. I agree with you on having the shirt unbuttoned and the necklaces lower--very attractive.

    ReplyDelete
  49. PS - Woo-hoo to the job w/benefits!!! =)

    ReplyDelete
  50. You look very pretty and congratulations on your new job :)

  51. "then I tell her he's my boyfriend and my husband"

    I hope you know that you are seriously adorable.

    I totally love the outfit, especially with the top slightly unbuttoned and the necklace pulled down! The other way is super awesome, too, though--the full button up with the hint of sparkle is so classy and unexpected (not that everything you wear isn't always 100% classy)!

    ReplyDelete
  52. congrats on the new job!!! the two necklaces look so good together.. great idea!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. i love how you combine the necklaces, and denim on denim rocks! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Seriously, you have the best style. How are you able to pull of any look and make it look so fabulous? Wish I had your eye for fashion.
    Please tell more about your new job, you've got me curious!! Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ah, congrats on the new gig! Super excited to hear updates. And really inspired to try a fancier necklace with denim - awesome contrast. :)
