I CAMO TO PARTY

Are you one of those girls who sees an outfit and then you are inspired to replicate it with your own pieces? Jill is good at this, but I am not. I’ll see an item that reminds me of something I own and haven’t worn in a while, but that’s usually the extent of my thought bubble. However, I came across this picture on StreetPeeper:

and I fell in love with the girl on the left’s outfit. Upon further inspection, that might even be my exact Forever skirt. I had planned on saving my version for a nighttime look, but the weather has made boots a necessity and skirt looks are in high demand. So I decided to school-ify it.

Now, I don’t recommend busting out this outfit at your day job unless they are already used to you wearing *interesting* getups. I was originally wary of wearing a leather skirt to school, but no one batted an eyelash the first time, so Game On.

Jill’s quest to kill me with hypothermia continues. But how beautiful is this blue wall we accidentally found?

Good lord, it was cold and windy. Can you tell? These pics are not top notch because we just tried to take a bunch as quickly as possible. Also, I am not suffering from some kind of leg disease: those are pale peach tights with gold studs. Next time, I’ll expose more of them (shorter boots) so you can tell what’s really going on.

All Mouth and Trouser Jeans

You guys, I went to TJ Maxx yesterday after school and BOY did I score. I found this 2-ply cashmere sweater in this gorgeous color for $50. Fifty bucks!! I found these camel suede wedge pumps made by Dr. Scholls (for $25), so you know they are mega comfy. (I also bought a black pencil skirt with a faux leather panel, but that’s for another day.)

It turns out that only pay days are Casual Friday (aka We Can Wear Jeans), but these are technically denim trousers, so whatever.  If I had a little more time in the morning, I probably would’ve ironed a crease to make them fall a little better, but alas, one must prioritize.

Oops, we had to temporarily suspend the shoot to allow this trucker to do his job!
