No Wallace, Just Grommets

This is the part where I’m supposed to say something cutesy like: “This is my go-to outfit for running errands!” Maybe I’d follow it up with a “lolz” (what does the Z stand for?!) or an emoticon. But alas, my “go-to outfit” for running errands is usually jeans, boat shoes, and an Indy Law t-shirt. It’s nerd chic, minus the chic part.

Still –  once in a while, I find that taking an extra couple minutes to pick out a real outfit and apply red lipstick makes me more productive. When I look frumpy, I just want to get my stuff done as quickly as possible and then get home. When I wore this outfit, I actually had a pretty good day! After my trip to the post office, I hung out at Starbucks and wrote a cover letter for a summer internship, did some blog maintenance, and answered a few emails. I can do those things at home, but no one makes me a delicious nonfat latte at home, which means that…I can’t really do those things at home. When I’m rich, I will have a Starbucks in my house. Just kidding – we all know I’ll spend all my money on shoes.

By the way, I included that photo of a snowy landscape in an effort to convince myself that the beautiful scene was worth nearly freezing to death taking outfit photos (but it wasn’t).

  1. Freezing in the snow for the photos was totally worth it because all the snow looks so beautiful and magical! I am supremely jealous. Although I’m sure if I were actually there I’d be over it in about five minutes. Love the leopard!

  2. Hi there! Loving your blog, my name is Katie Elliott I am the creator of Tag a ( The website works like this: each week I announce a new fashion trend, and people then tag themselves on Facebook wearing that trend. This is done by tagging their picture with the Tag a Trend Facebook page.

    The other option is to directly add your pics to the facebook wall at or to email pics to The best pics then appear on my site.

    Next week’s trend, starting on Monday is ‘Leopard Print’ and as I can see you are loving the trend, I thought you might be interested in getting involved and tagging yourself in this fab print. The picture will appear on both my site and Facebook (both with a direct link back to your blog.)

    (As this new trend doesn’t start until Monday, it may be best to email pictures rather than tag, so they don’t get mixed up with this week’s trend of ‘Aztec Print’!

    Look forward to hearing from you!
