Sorry I’ve been MIA this week. I had jury duty Monday and was selected as a juror. Then add tons of work to catch up on and finally, our wireless router went kaput. Even though I had my phone and could check emails it was odd not being on the internet. I was able to clean my awful dirty kitchen floor and start my closet clean-out. I should be posting/hosting a Blog Sale later today/tomorrow so be on the look-out for that. I was also able to get to Anthropologie and play dress up for almost 2 hours so I’ll post that this week too.

Here are some of my outfits from last week. The first few are for Jury Duty.

Turtleneck: J Crew Tissue Turtleneck
Sweater: J Crew Cashmere Shawl Popover in Jalapeno
Pants: Banana Republic 
Boots: Steve Madden Inragee

It was really cold last week so I was able to finally wear my Italian Wool Blazecoat. A button popped off before I took it off the hanger but thankfully they are hidden when buttoned.

This is what I wanted to wear to Jury Duty one day but it was still too cold for a skirt, even with tights.

All items J Crew
Tissue Turtleneck in Blanched Orchid
Cashmere Cardigan in Bright Plum
Sunnie Pencil Skirt
Tights: Merona
Jean: J Crew FS Boot Cut
J Crew Pin

Friday – Work Catch-up Day: I found this Kimono Sleeved Turtleneck at Saks Off 5th last year. I made them take it off a mannequin.

I’m off to finish my closet clean-out and run errands. Have a great day!

And a little boring. And I have a confession.

I broke the shopping ban that’s part of the remix. I’m still trying to stay true to the rest of the remix but when I put on one of the items (usually a top and usually a tee) I see a cardigan or skirt that would go well with it I almost cave and break the remix.

So here’s what I broke the ban on. J Crew, of course. I couldn’t stay away from the extra 30% off. I just went in to do some returns and came out with this.

I have no will power but it was too good of a deal to pass up. It was in-store on sale for $159.99. There’s still a size 8 in the camel at that price. I wish that color would have fit. (J Crew La Cantera, San Antonio, TX if you’re interested.) Then it was 30% off on top of that. I quickly did the math. I’m not stupid, maybe crazy and have no will-power. A fantastic gorgeous coat for $125 (w/tax) that I will wear only a handful of times a year but it’s a classic. Ugh, if only it had been in the camel in a 6.

And then…yes there’s more…I went in again to do another return (stupid 30 day return policy) and The Boy had grease on his shirt (!?!?!) from lunch. He actually asked if he could go find another shirt to buy, WHILE IN J CREW. WITH URBAN OUTFITTERS ACROSS THE ROAD!!! I was so proud of my guy. He found a black Jaspe polo all my himself. And it was only $14.99.

I have days 12, 13, 14 outfits coming up.
