Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen a color prettier than this shirt. Are you raising your hand? Put it down because you’re lying. Loft calls it “crisp seafoam” but I would call it “barely mint.” It sort of looks like it was a white shirt that got washed with a bright mint green shirt so it got just a tiny bit discolored. In case you’re wondering, NO, that is not what happened. I wash everything in cold water because I don’t trust myself to do any sort of household chores correctly.
I wore this on Tuesday night for a date at Cheesecake Factory. We really like going on dates outside the normal Friday and Saturday night. It’s good excuse to look a little special while still staying pretty comfy. The date was excellent. By the end of the night I was pregnant…with a food baby.

I’m always a little unsure of what to do with this top because of how sheer it is. I usually end up wearing something under or over it (see the remix below). In honor of Halloween and all its weirdly skanky versions of costumes, I decided to step up the sexy factor of these polka dots and let a black bra show through. I mean I didn’t really wear it out in public exactly…just to a dinner party with a handful of friends. But still. It was a Thursday.
I KNOW. Shut the front door. I really know how to go crazy, right? I would make the worst prostitute ever. No one would stop and pick me up because they’d just think I was a normal person waiting to cross the street. I better hope this law school thing works out because all my other career dreams are shot.
So what say you? Letting bras show on purpose: yay or nay?

Happy weekend, everyone! Here’s a little something I put together to wear to class earlier this week. These boyfriend jeans were my repeat item (it’s the end of week 3 of the remix challenge…craziness).
I’m pretty excited about these jeans. Why? Oh good, I’m glad you asked. Well, I’ve always been a fan of the cuffed baggy jean look on girls…in theory. But I was skeptical of trying it myself due to my – shall we say – efficient size. Thanks to the Olsen twins, we’ve all seen what few favors baggy clothes lend to a tiny person, and I’m not rich enough to pull off the homeless look like MK and Ashley.
Anyway, I happened to go in New York & Company the other day and saw they had these jeans called “slim slouch.” At first I thought that was a ridiculous name, because how can jeans be slim and slouchy at the same time? Well, it turns out…like this. They really are slim and slouchy, and I love them! Super comfortable too. I don’t shop at NY & Co. often, but I might have to start buying more jeans there! My pant-fitting challenge (we all have one, right?) is that my hips are quite a bit wider than my waist, so I always get that big gap in the back of the waist band – handy for storing snacks but otherwise annoying. If you have that problem too, you should try NY & Co. (and let me know if there’s another store I should be trying)!
