I wore this last week to school when I was not quite over the flu. At the time, the idea of standing in the cold for more than 1 minute sounded about as appealing as…you know…having the flu. So I didn’t take photos. But then later I realized it was a black-less outfit, so I recreated it to share with you for Black Out challenge week! You’re welcome.
This seems like a good time to point out the newest member of my wear-with-anything jewelry collection: this monogram necklace. I had never really considered myself a monogram-necklace-wearing kind of gal until oNecklace offered to send me one. Now I’m kind of loving it. They have a ton of different styles, and at first I thought a “modern” looking one would be more my taste, but in the end I went with the classic, fancy schmancy font because I like how, from far away, it just looks like a swirly little design. It’s like that font they use on diplomas that you can’t actually read but it makes your education look more elite.

I am so pissed at the wind right now! I was having the best hair day but you can’t even tell because the breeze is blowing my softly cascading waves behind my head like a superhero cape (if a superhero didn’t know where the cape is supposed to go). Such a shame. You’ll just have to take my word for it. I woke up, rolled out of bed…and my hair looked fabulous. Oh, and the “…” is short for “shampooed, conditioned, towel dried, combed, applied product, blow dried, curled, sprayed.” It takes a lot of work to look this windblown.
On a more upbeat note, the Take One challenge continues! I’m remixing these fringe booties you saw in my last outfit. In case you missed it, I also posted the Week 1 Roundup on Friday!

Peeps, I have one. exam. left. I think I will survive but my brain is a little fried right now and my eyes are having an allergic reaction to staring at a computer anymore. So I’ll have to keep this one short (like me). I wore this Wednesday while studying (surprise) and doing some Christmas shopping. Apparently to make up for the lack of accessories recently, I decided to wear the biggest accessory I have. Also, how great is this sweater? That is all.

I sent Kristin a picture of this sweater from the dressing room to see what she thought. She said it was “a hip Cosby sweater” and gave me the thumbs up to purchase. And Kristin was not the only person to give me a figurative thumbs up on one or more elements of this outfit. I got compliments from my friends, from other kids in class, and even from a complete stranger at Trader Joe’s.
I don’t mean to sound conceited, but I feel like I look pretty good every day. Well, at least the days I make an effort and leave my apartment. I didn’t really think this outfit was any more fantastic than the outfit I wore yesterday, or the day before that. But for whatever reason, this one was a hit! Oh well, I won’t complain. Instead I shall celebrate like Bill Cosby and have some pudding. What’s that? We don’t have any pudding? OK, Trader Joe’s coffee ice cream it is.

I show you a lot of accessories on this blog: earrings, headbands, necklaces, bracelets, belts, handbags, watches, nipple rings…I mean, um…
Anywho, I realized I’ve been neglecting my poor little iPhone and her accessories. Since Loop Attachment recently sent me this purdy blue case, I figured this would be a perfect time to show off my “techcessories.”
My iPhone was shy at first – This ensemble is a little more revealing than what she’s used to. But after a few days she got her confidence up. Everyone, go ahead and tell her how thin she looks (but please don’t mention the even thinner iPhone 5…it’s a touchy subject).
So in addition to being pretty cute and being called the “mummy case,” you can stick a credit card behind the little criss cross business. Not much use to me because I’m more of a wallet girl, but it seems like something men would like? I’m not sure because I don’t know any men. But if you know any men who have an iPhone and a credit card, just keep in mind that Christmas is right around the corner.
Speaking of accessories, how cute is this bracelet from Madewell?! It looks like a golden twig.
