It has been a very silver white winter, and it needs to MELT INTO F$%&ING SPRING ALREADY. I knew it was coming, but waking up to cold and snow yesterday was still so hard after 2 days in a row of 60+ degrees. And it wasn’t just snow – it was huge flakes of really wet snow. And it was windy. So walking outside was kind of like being in a snowball fight with Buddy the Elf. It’s mid-March. #snoverit
Even though the weather was totally inappropriate, at least this top kinda looks like it has cute little snowflakes on it. I do love a theme. But this top is still SUPPOSED to be for SPRING. I want to wear it on its own with a floral pencil skirt and nude pumps. One day soon…

I got this jacket in January as part of a suit and I wore it for the first day of my new internship (pictured below, far right). But as long as I’m only dressing business casual once a week, I might as well make my new “workwear” double as “studentwear.” Turns out Lucky Magazine wasn’t lying to us…you really can break up your suits and wear the blazer with jeans. But when Vogue said you could wear a feather headdress and a $2000 mesh top with no bra, it was definitely lying. (Anna Wintour, if you’re reading this, I’m totally kidding. You’re a genius. Please give me a job. Love, Sarah.)

This outfit took me like 12 tries to get right. You’d think after all that trouble I would have come up with something better. Nope, just this sweater, skirt, and boots, all of which I’ve worn before (see below) but never together. I actually started out with sweater 1 and skirt 1 but didn’t like them together so I switched to skirt 2 with sweater 1, then sweater 2 with skirt 2 and it just kept going on like that for a while until I got tired and thought “well, sweater 17 and skirt 12 don’t look so bad…let’s go with this.”
As the old saying goes, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again until you come up with something at least mediocre. (In case you can’t tell, I’m totally fishing for compliments at this point. So go ahead and tell me how great I look and to stop being so modest.)

It’s only about once a year that I bust out this little “capelet” thing. “Capelet” is the best suggestion I’ve had for what exactly to call it. It’s more than a scarf but less than a sweater. It’s sort of like a cape, but there are no arm holes. I wouldn’t quite call it outerwear, but I wouldn’t call it underwear either. WHAT ARE YOU, LITTLE KNIT THING?! Maybe its mystique is part of why I’ve kept it around for 5+ years.
Despite its awkward identity crisis, this little guy actually came in handy over the weekend. I wore this outfit on Saturday, which was a busy day spent in several different places with different temperatures. This sweater isn’t very warm – but I just loved the color with my tan boots – so when I was in a well-heated space, I could take the capelet off and be comfortable. But in chilly restaurants (I went to 2 of them), I kept it on to stay toasty. And when I went outside, I just adjusted it up and forward (wearing it more like an infinity scarf) so I could fit a coat on top. Well done, strange garment, well done.
Oh hey! Don’t forget about the latest giveaway (and the fabulous outfit that went with it)!

I don’t even remember the last time I wore anything besides boots. Somebody scroll back through the archives until you find it and then let me know. And then I’ll make fun of you for wasting so much of your time.
I’m willing to make a few sacrifices to my comfort for the sake of fashion, but a blister is one thing. Amputating a frostbitten foot is quite another. So boots it is.
Naturally, the best way to keep from being totally bored with wearing boots is to buy more boots. If you read my post yesterday, you know I’m trying to be better about my spending habits. But I’ll have you know I snagged these babies for just $40! So hold your judgment. Or don’t. It doesn’t matter…they were final sale and I already wore them.

My sixth and final semester of law school has officially begun, and this is what I wore for my first day back. I had the genius idea to sign up for an 8:30am class on Mondays, and with the Golden Globes the night before, well…let’s just say I didn’t wear the hat solely for the fashion statement. Sarah’s hair be greasy!
Clearly I’m not very good at following the “take one thing off before you leave the house” rule, because not only did I add a hat, I also added this scarf. For some reason I felt like the royal blue boots just came out of nowhere and I wanted something to tie the look together. There’s a little bit of royal blue in the scarf so that made me feel better. And speaking of these royal blue boots, aren’t they amazing?! The correct answer is yes.

See something you recognize? I mean besides me. Yep, it’s those boots I couldn’t stop blabbering about yesterday. I did indeed wear them 2 days in a row. This time it was for a fun karaoke night. I love karaoke, you guys. I mean, I don’t sing or anything, but I am so good at drinking and judging people. Hang on…before you tell me I’m a horrible person, let me just say: don’t bother; I already know.
While I have your attention, I gotta tell you wardrobe-challenge-lovers about the January Black Out Challenge. The goal is to NOT wear any black – with just a couple exceptions – during this cold and dreary month when we all stop caring about life or color. Don’t get too impressed that I came up with yet another genius idea, because this one wasn’t me! It’s the brain child of Nicole, and she’s the official challenge host over on her blog, VV Boutique Style. She already started the challenge, and I’ll join her to co-host for the last 2 weeks of the month. You do NOT have to be a blogger to participate, and everyone who tries the challenge for at least a week will be entered in a giveaway, plus both Nicole and I will do weekly roundups! You can get alllll the details here. I think it’s a really fun idea so I’m happy to help spread her idea to more people! Join in, or I will judge you like a bad karaoke singer.
