Mad Plaidder

This is the most professional I’ve looked in a while. I recently redid my closet, which is pretty huge, but only consisted of one long hanging bar. The new set up involves multiple hanging bars and several shelves, which has gone a long way in getting my stuff organized.

Part of the organization process involveD rediscovering pieces I’d forgotten about, including this vest. I had a gift certificate to Daffy’s, which was closing soon and only exists on the East Coast. So, in a semi panic in the Philadelphia store, I ended up with this vest (and, oddly enough, a Rachel Roy Chicago Bulls shirt). I probably would not have bought this with “real money”, but I’m so glad I did. It’s very clearly professional looking, but an interesting piece at the same time. And I have half a mind to wear it alone with jeans the next time I’m feeling extra saucy.

Violet Hour

Oh the disorgaization of it all! These last few (and probably the next few) posts have been wildly out of order, but such is life.

This extremely purple number was from the last day of Spirit Week. Friday was Wear Your School Sports Team Shirt Or The Spirit Week Shirt Day, of which I had neither, so I just decided to go overboard with our school color: purple. I’ve worn this tank/cardigan combo out before, but certainly not with all the extra purple accessories. The silk top is scandalously low cut, so I decided to throw a little pop of Other Color in with the modesty cami.

Pinky Swear

This week was Spirit Week at school, so I don’t have much new material (hence all the “flashbacks”). For the uninitiated, Spirit Week is when you show your school spirit by wearing silly stuff all week (Mismatch Day was epic, and I’m pretty bummed I didn’t capture the glory of my insane outfit!). Tuesday was Color Day, where each grade is assigned a different color to represent. We pulled pink, which I was pretty excited about until I got home and realized that I don’t have much solid pink.

I usually sleep in this sweater! It is kind of awkwardly big/long (I bought it as an emergency cover up one chilly summer day), but super soft. I decided to go with the slouchy idea and paired it with boyfriend-y jeans and a big scarf. These pink glitter shoes jazzed the whole look up, and I threw on these earrings at the last minute just to be extra ridiculous (Jill thinks they look like Mentos).

P.S. Nails are purple because that’s our school color
