So I was standing in bare feet in front of my mirror looking at this combo and thinking that a loose tank + drapey jacket-type thing + long pendant + distressed jean shorts = a little too loosey-goosey-hippie-dippie. One set of rhymes might be OK, but two? Whoa. Slow your roll.

Then I put on my trusty black wedges and I was singing a different tune – one you wouldn’t have heard at Woodstock. I can’t totally explain it but I feel like they have sort of a simple, classic elegance to them and they just give the whole look a different vibe. Plus my feet look cute in them and they’re really comfy. So it’s all around a win.

Happy Friday! These are some photos from Sunday just after we got off the train from NJ. Keep in mind I spent Saturday bridesmaiding to the max in a floor length chiffon dress and lots of hairspray, so this outfit was the perfect antidote. I’m sure I looked super touristy in my t-shirt and Keds, gazing up at the tall buildings, but I don’t really care. Even though I’ve been to NYC 5 times, the first day still gets me every time! It’s just a special place.

We spent day one mostly just hanging out with friends and having great food and drinks. You can see both Kristin’s and my Instagrams from the trip under the hash tag #HarcutsDoNYC (Harcut is the name we made up by combining the first 3 letters of both of our real last names – it’s pronounced the same as “haircut” which is why we didn’t actually change our names to that when we got married).

More trip photos and tourist outfits will be up next week!

I’ve gotta keep the blurb today pretty short…I’m writing this at the end of a long day and my eyes don’t want to stay open. They actually haven’t wanted to stay open since about three hours after I woke up. Coffee? Why yes, I tried that. Diet Coke? Yep, twice. Sleeping? That sounds like the best cure.

Before I start nodding off, I’ll point out my remix item of the day: these jeans! Since I’m not a jeans-everyday person, and this is my only pair of distressed denim, I decided they were unique enough for me to repeat. Fun fact: I wore tights under these jeans today and yesterday. Exposed skin and sub-zero wind chills don’t mix.

Warm Colors, Cold Wind

Can you tell I was being slapped in the face with cold wind and ice in these pictures? If not, I should probably audition for America’s Next Top Model because I am amazingly talented. As long as they don’t check my height, we’re good. Then again, living with a dozen 20-year-old self-obsessed drama queens sounds about as pleasant as dunking my face in a bowl of acid. So thank you for the offer, Tyra, but I’ll pass.

On a more pleasant note, this sweater is another piece from the Prabal Gurung for Target collection. It’s still available online (see below)! And my remix of the day is these wedge boots. This is the second outfit I posted today (playing catch-up), so see Day 17 here.

Sunshine and a Slight Chill

20120911-141931.jpgWelcome to a typical Sunday outfit – which I am showing to you on a Wednesday just to keep you guessing. (Sarah’s Real Life – What WILL she do next?!) This past Sunday was a beautiful sunny day, but temps were hovering around 70, so I decided on a mix of light fall layers and summer colors. And can I just mention how much I love scarves? I know some people would rather remove their own eyeballs than wear something around their neck all day, but those people are deranged. Scarves are cute; they’re comfy; they’re cozy. In fact, if you just had your eyeballs removed, you might feel better if you sought comfort in a nice scarf. Give me your address and I’ll send you one.

Tied With a Bow. Or a Crap Ton of Bows.

I like finding t-shirts with fun details so I can feel like I’m wearing something special even on those jeans-and-a-t-shirt days. I just picked up this top at Ann Taylor…if there are any other bow lovers out there, I highly recommend stopping by good ol’ Ann’s place. She’s got lots of bows for you.

I wore this a couple days ago when I was out running errands to get ready for classes to start (and they start tomorrow…eep!). It rained all day, which is why you’re getting a little glimpse of the inside of my apartment. I’ll go ahead and let you assume that the rest of it is as tidy as the small section you see here.

Top available at Ann Taylor (and full-price tops are currently buy one, get one half off…just thought I’d mention that)
