Plaid thirty

Oxford - thrifted Cambridge
Necklaces - both thrifted
Jeans - Target
Shoes - Minnetonka Moccasin

It's a short week due to Thanksgiving and I don't have much to say so let's throw in a tribute to this shirt! It always reminds me of my mom because she had a bunch of plaid oxfords that she wore when I was a kid in the '80s.

Friday it got really cold outside so Nate and I went to happy hour for dinner then went home and made a fire in the fireplace and played Trivial Pursuit. We're re-watching the old Star Wars movies so we watched The Empire Strikes Back on Saturday, then I had to go waitress a huge wedding til 1am and Nate hung out with his best man. Sunday was awesomely lazy again - lots of watching of football and old Dateline mysteries.

No. 5

I never know if it's a good thing or not when the high schoolers at my work compliment my outfit... All the girls loved this sweatshirt. Does that mean I'm cool or does it mean that I'm dressing like I'm 16??? Or does it mean that someone needs to take the piss out of Karl Lagerfeld? And Chanel No. 5? When I was in high school, someone gave my sister a bottle of Chanel No. 5 and I was wicked jealous. Til I smelled it. It smells like an old lady. There, I said it. (but I might be biased because I'm not a fan of perfume in general - it gives me a headache.)

Yesterday's get-up... I figured I should wear these boots a few times before it snows. In the winter I wear my snowboots for the walk to the bus stop and just huck my shoes in my work bag. But I always think it's too weird to carry big ol' boots with me on the bus. It just seems really ridiculous and IDK - vain? So it's boot season from now until we get the first big snow! Some of my flat boots do ok in the snow, but these stilettos are a big no-no.

Cuckoo bananas

Woo! New dress! I customized this one to have short sleeves (it was originally sleeveless) because I can always throw a cardigan over it, but it's nice to be able to wear it as-is to work. The material is awesome - it's cotton with spandex so it's a bit stretchy and has a full skirt (with pockets!) I thought the bold black stripes on the dress would work well with these cuckoo crazy tights too!

Well, I totally dropped the blogging ball there. I forgot my camera two days in a row. Cause I'm an idiot. Ooops. So here's Friday, when I felt the need to wear some Mr. T-esque chains with my chain print blouse.
Shirt - thrifted Hilfiger
Necklaces - both thrifted
Jeans - Gap
Shoes - thrifted Enzo Angiolini

Friday night Nate and I went to his old house and had one last bonfire with some friends before it gets toooo cold. Saturday we both worked. Sunday was awesome. We made Swedish pancakes, then watched football, then watched 42, then made falafel for dinner. And I never changed out of my pajamas. It was amazing. As long as I have ONE lazy day a week, I'm good.

And Monday... a very blue day.

Monday afternoon Nate and I went to the bank to combine our accounts and all that jazz and had the most bizarre bank employee ever. He was a total weirdo. It was awesome. Then we got home and our photographer had sent us a link to our wedding photos. So we sat and had a glass of wine and watched our 785 photo slideshow. It was also awesome!

Rita Fires

After wearing my big stomping boots on Wednesday, I got pretty girly yesterday... I kinda felt like a nerd because we had to do an unplanned fire-drill (which was a practice drill for the MPLS fire department) and it's weird to have to assist firemen while dressed like a cupcake. Oh hey, big ol' fireman, yep, I'm the nurse. Yep, I've got my EMS bag. And a velvet bow tie.

Dress - Anna Sui for Target
Vest - ?? (no tag & it's from high school)

This bag totes doesn't match my ensemble! Good thing neon is still "in," right, fireman? Bueller?

Tough boots

Yesterday, a day for big boots:

Shirt - Jacob
Skirt - DIY
Tights - Cynthia Rowley
Boots - Timberland

These boots are tough, both in the bad-ass way, and the hard to figure out how to wear them way. They were available in either black or brown, and since I already had two pairs of tall brown boots, I got them in black. But they're not quite black. They're like a dark grey/green/black combo. It's frustrating. First world probs and all.

Party like it's 1994

Yesterday's oddly '90s outfit... something about the "Arctic blast" we got yesterday made me want to wear a big, soft men's cardigan and wool knee socks... and a googly eyed cat pin.

Pin - thrifted vintage
Cardigan - thrifted Winona Knits
Dress - thrifted Petite Sophisticate
Socks - ? very old
Shoes - Plenty by Tracy Reese

It was 8 degrees yesterday morning, which calls for the big guns coats and hats. I instantly regretted forgetting a scarf. It takes a while for me to get into full-on winter mode where I actually remember my hat and gloves and scarf every day.
Hat - thrifted
Coat - thrifted vintage Pavilion Petite

Googly cat whose body looks like a jelly bean:

P.S. Yes, I did fulfill my annual tradition of watching Back to the Future on November 12. We only watched the first one though as Nate has had to work late a lot, but I'm hoping to watch the other two some time this week! Great Scott!

Pants mode

11-11-13 Pants patrol
Necklace - J.Crew Factory
Oxford - thrifted vintage Juster Woman
Corduroys - thrifted Banana Republic (altered from long flares by me)
Shoes - Michael Kors


I feel like I've been in pants mode for the past month or so. I'm just not ready to do the tights thing yet, I guess. I'm also in fancy necklace mode too apparently.

Detachable collars

Shirt - J.Crew Factory
Necklace - Off 5th
Jeans - Paul & Joe for Target
Shoes - Minnetonka Moccasin


I know the whole add-on collar trend has been around forever in various forms. I found this gold chain mail one at Off 5th when I had a gift certificate to use. I figure I can detach the center pendant if I want a simpler collar, or add a different pendant to mix it up.  I have two other little collars, and I wear them a lot, so I'm excited to experiment with this one.

Minnesota sweatshirt

This sweatshirt? It rocks. I was surprised to see I'd only worn it four times previously on the blog. I feel like I wear it constantly, but it's one of those things I toss on a lot on the weekends, so it doesn't get photographed much. Sorry sweatshirt, I'll try to wear you to work more! You're a champ!

Not me

Yesterday... I don't think of myself as much of a "statement necklace" kinda girl but I had a gift certificate to Off 5th (Sak's 5th Avenue outlet) and I thought this one was pretty neat.

Fleece moto jacket - Jacob
Necklace - Off 5th 
Long sleeve tee - Target
Cropped pants - Target
Ballet flats - Target


Wow, that's a very Target-y outfit. I guess it just goes to show, I bought my basics at Target (well, I used to. I'm still going strong on my promise to not buy new clothing or accessories.) In fact, I just noticed I'm one week shy of six months since that post and the only brand new thing I bought was a pair of shoes for my wedding. Pretty painless.

Yesterday... I'm always a sucker for a graphic tee with a blazer or jacket. I can't help it. I'm a total t-shirt girl (I also really love oxford shirts). I really don't own any grown-up "blouses" or um, fancy tops? I don't know what to call them but they just never interest me!

We had the day off yesterday so the teachers could do first quarter report cards. Luckily I don't have to do anything so I got to sleep in, run some errands, then lay around watching tv (which was awesome BTW). So I'm behind a day on my outfits, here's Friday:

Shirt - some boutique in Seoul, Korea
Belt - thrifted
Jeans - Earnest Sewn
Glitter flats - Dollhouse

Gratuitous photo of my favorite fall jacket. It's only practical for a short amount of time as it's just a knit so it really doesn't keep the wind out! It's so cute though! Suffer!
