While waiting for the elevator on the way up to Bar review lecture, a classmate complimented these shoes. I said thanks but then immediately felt the need to admit, “I really have no reason to wear shoes like this today.” But then she replied, “Well, if it makes you happy!”

I love it when people get me.

P.S. This top is from Kate Spade Saturday, which is a cheaper sister brand to the fancy Kate Spade. There’s a “secret sale” going on right now, and while this shirt is no longer available, there are some amazing deals! I have several pieces from this brand and I’m a big fan. You can shop the sale here; you just have to enter your email address and zip code.

Guest Star: a Bowl of Sherbet

I know what you’re thinking: Who’s this hottie and why can’t she be on the blog every day instead of Sarah? Well, it’s because most of the time she’s the one taking photos and I’m the one who’s dressed better. But over the weekend on our Bloomington date, Kristin stepped up her style game so I made her hand over the camera.

The best thing about this outfit was that it was an accident. We’ve all been there: you go through all the trouble of planning everything you’re going to wear on an out-of-town trip, and then you manage to leave a key piece at home. Well, Kristin planned to wear her chambray with these mint pants, but she made the mistake of hanging up the shirt at home overnight to get the wrinkles out, and the shirt decided not to jump into her bag on its own the next day. Shirts are so lazy that way.

So she was stuck with re-wearing this t-shirt, but I for one think it might be even cuter with these pants than the chambray would’ve been. I mean she looks like a big bowl of sherbet, and who doesn’t like sherbet? In fact, Kristin looked so delicious that I ate her for dessert. And that’s how Regina George died.

Just kidding. But don’t lie…you totally want sherbet now, don’t you?

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.

Arm Get-Together

20120830-183657.jpgSo the other day I was just hangin’ around, doing some outfit photos…

When suddenly…

…I had a new friend! I’m kind of like Sleeping Beauty. I frolic about near a tree, and animal life just appears around me. Now if only I could channel Cinderella and get the animals to make me a dress.

20120830-183750.jpgI got the scoop from a neighbor that this little cutie has been hanging around the area for about a month now. Hopefully she finds a forever home soon (our apartment unfortunately cannot handle the scent of 2 cats). She was SO friendly. But she did try to steal my spotlight. Let’s talk about me some more:

Where did the title of this post come from, you may ask? Well, I know “arm parties” are all the rage these days, but I just don’t like them. #1: Having 10 bracelets clanging around on my wrist would drive me crazy. #2: If you wear every bracelet and watch you own at one time, you lose the fun in picking out your accessories! So instead of an arm party, I’m just having a small, intimate arm get-together. There’s still plenty of fun to be had, but the guest list is a bit shorter. And instead of the keg and solo cups you’d have at an arm party, my wrist will be serving cocktails in real stemware (OK, maybe I just want a drink right now).

Hope your Labor Day is non-laborious!

Bracelets are from Forever 21
