City of Angles

What kind of life did I lead before I realized you could wear different prints together and it could actually look like it was on purpose? The answer is: A sad one.

And speaking of sad, this post is going to be this sweater’s last hurrah. I got it at Target a few years back, and I’ve worn it enough that the fabric is getting a little pilly. Is that a word? You know what I mean.

Anyway, the last couple winters I’ve passed by this sweater in my closet many times because I just wasn’t excited about wearing it anymore. Then a couple days ago I realized it might be fun to pair it with my plaid Madewell shirt. I was right. It was fun. But now the fun is over. This sweater has done everything it can do for me. Farewell, sweet prince. Thanks for the memories.

P.S. I hope you noticed my clever title. “Angles” is not a typo. Get it?

Thanks to all your comments on yesterday’s post, I learned that a lot of other workin’ girls wear pants to work on the regular, especially in the winter. I’m glad you all are showing your trousers some love, because lo and behold I am back to a dress today. What can I say? I’m a goddamn lady.

One thing I like about dresses and skirts is that they’re better for showing off a great shoe, which is exactly what I wanted to do for this outfit. I just got these Anne Klein cap-toe pumps after passing by them a few times at Macy’s. Some things are just meant to be together. Romeo and Juliet. Leslie and Ben from Parks and Rec. Me and these shoes. I think Shakespeare would cover the second two if he were alive today.

Thanks to the bright sun reflecting off the shoes, you can’t quite tell that they’re actually a really pale pink with rose gold toes and heels. Amazing, right? I’m sure I’ll wear them again soon and I’ll try to get some more true-to-life photos. Or you can just look at them here.

Where are You, Spring?

A good chunk of the U.S. is under a few inches of snow, and my handsome city of Indianapolis is part of that chunk. We got just under 4″, which is – I imagine – a typical June day in Minnesota, so I can’t complain too much.

Unfortunately, this snow fell at the precise moment my internal calendar told me it should be almost spring.  (Unlike normal women, my biological clock doesn’t tell me to have babies; it just tells me when I should and shouldn’t wear tights.) So while I would really like to not be wearing an extra layer under this chambray, and to not be wearing tights under this skirt, and to be wearing cute wedges instead of fleece socks and Hunters…I’ll do what I have to do for now.

And on a completely different note, I ran out of time to do my normal hair routine yesterday. Normally I use a de-frizzing serum, I separate my hair into 3 layers to straighten it, and I use hairspray to finish. Today I used NO products and ran the straightener through a couple random chunks. Maybe I’m crazy, but I think it looks exactly the same. And that is making me kind of mad. Why have I been wasting my time?!? If someone could please tell me my hair looks bad, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

20120929-231159.jpgI just can’t get enough of mixed prints. Did anyone else see the Today Show earlier this week when they did a segment on how to mix prints? Hello?! I did a post on that 2 weeks ago! I totally beat them to the punch. But I’m not bitter, because, as a humanitarian, I want the gift of print mixing to be shared with as many people as possible. And the Today Show probably has a bigger audience than I do. Maybe now that Ann Curry left, anyway. Everybody hated her.

Oh, I wore this to class on Saturday, then to lunch. I had cheesecake. In case you were wondering.
