Gun Show

dress: Unif, long cardigan: who the hell knows, boots: Charles David, belt: F21

I love this dress. From the moment I saw it on Karmaloop, I knew I had to have it. Only then, it had long mesh sleeves attached. I don't do long sleeves often for a couple of reasons, a) It's usually really hot here, no one wants to sweat that much. b) I have really long arms. Most long sleeves don't reach my wrists. It's ok, I'm used to it. But with this dress I encountered a new issue. My arms were too BIG for the sleeves. Not long, BIG. I couldn't get my biceps through. So I had two options. Send it back for a larger size but that would make the dress bigger everywhere else. Or...cut off the sleeves. Option number 2 won and it's been working for me. 

After School

shirt: H&M, skirt: F21, OTK socks: Target, boots: Charles David, peace sign cuff: Lucky Brand

Feeling extremely like an off duty private school girl. untucked button down, sunglasses, and knee socks. Isn't this the type of stuff they wear? I'm a public school girl, I have no idea how the other side lives. I never had to wear a uniform, thank God! Such a loss of individualism. And what could be worse than that?

But it's Black Friday!

tank: Victoria's Secret PINK, jeans: Levi's, grandpa cardigan: Old Navy, sneaks: Converse

I could not believe it. I had to work on Black Friday. I've never had an office job where I had to work the Friday after Thanksgiving. Well, fine. I'll come in, but I'm gonna be as comfy as possible while doing so. Nothing more comfortable than jeans, sneakers, and a tank top. Maybe pajamas, but I thought that would be pushing it. I came home after 8 hours and plopped myself on the floor. I figured why not take a few shots form down here. Then Lando wanted in on the action.

It's About Time!!

beanie: Target, tank: Express, jeans: American Eagle, cardigan: Target, boots: Jeffery Campbell

I woke up this morning to 69 degree weather! I've been waiting for months for this to happen. This is as close as we get to a serious autumn here in Ft Lauderdale. And it will be over in 2 days. I took advantage while I could and pulled out my favorite cardigan. I found it on a clearance rack at Target for $10. It's a XXL so it pretty much hangs off of me, like any good sweater should. Soft and ridiculously comfortable. I could live in this thing...if I lived somewhere colder.

dress: Kohl's; belt: F21; booties: Payless

When I say preppy, I mean for me. This shirt dress is as preppy as I ever get. It's not really my kinda style. But I've always wanted a shirt dress. I stumbled across this one on the clearance rack during a mother-daughter shopping day. I got rid of the matching belt, as I usual do and swapped it for this black one with matching teal design. 

Lazy Days

shirt: Charlotte Russe; skirt: bebe; socks: Hot Topic; boots: Jeffery Campbell

This outfit is the result of a long weekend of drunken debauchery. I woke op Monday morning wanting to wear pajamas to work. I got close. Just soft layer after soft layer. I "dressed it up" with heels. It was the closet I was getting to decent to leave the house.

Turban Time

shirt: H&M; shorts:F21; belt: H&M; shoes: Jessica Simpson; scarf: Hot Topic

This is the first time I tried a turban, not sure how I feel about it. Maybe next time I'll use a more subdued scarf. Or tie it a different way. I know this won't be my last attempt.
