I'm wearing a pink flower headband (giveaway win from Wanderlustings) pinned to a thrifted AE navy jacket ($6), J.Crew Factory white shirt (gift from my mom), Gap Outlet boyfriend jeans ($26), and JCPenney berry heels (free with gift cards) with a vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3).

I thrifted this jacket last weekend in Sac-town and I think I love it. It's a bit small and there is a waist-tie thing on the inside but it's right under my boobs, which is not where my waist is so I have to make sure I don't tighten it unless I never want to breathe. But then again if I don't tighten it, it makes me look boxy and shapeless like in the second picture. Decisions, decisions. It is things like this that make me realize how unfair life can be.

I may or may not have copied Liz's outfit. You can decide. (I did.)

K, The Office is on.. And Rosie is sleeping on the couch and I have to wake her up so we can cuddle. Seeyaaaaaaaa.

  6.  I agree with @84ac6ad1d06908652b40949f5d630ee5 you really are cool. Love the flower. At least the color is  different from Liz's and you placed it on your right while Liz has hers in her left. Love it!

  24. I like the cuffed jeans with the heels.

  25. I don't think it makes you look boxy.  But, to be safe, please breath.  I'm not a doctor, but I am sure that 10/10 of them recommend it.  ;-)  I love the flower and heels with the cuffed jeans.
