I’ve had this little made-up corny joke in my head all day after seeing myself in the mirror.

“Yellow. Owl You Doin’?”
“Oh, Spicy but a little Blue.”

Told you it was corny but it does sum up the outfit I wore to the office today. As soon as I knew I had to head in today I planned on wearing my No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Ultra Eyelet in Chili. (That would be the “Spicy”.) This was the first opportunity to wear it and I couldn’t decide which top to pair it with. It was either going to be the Stripe Sequin Tank with my Featherweight Cotton Cardigan in Yellow or my Lemon Liftoff Blouse (That would be the “Yellow. Owl You Doin’?”) with my Short-Sleeved V-Neck Cardigan in Navy (“a little Blue”).

At first I went with the Juliets in Poppy but they kept slipping off my feet so I switched them to my Simple 70 Louboutin’s in Navy. As you can see I went with the Lemon Liftoff Blouse and Navy Cardigan. I felt great and received soooo many compliments today in this outfit. The second pic was taken at the end of the day, when I got home, while the first was taken this morning. I had no idea my make-up really wore off that much by the end of the day. And no, your eyes are not deceiving you. My hair is different because I did stop and get a haircut at the end of the day. You’ll see it styled much better, soon.

Do you like this outfit with or without the blue?

Here’s what I wore today while working from home and making TWO trips (yes two) to J Crew. That 30% off sweaters plus the “red” card was too good to pass up!

Confession: I cheated with the pics which were taken a few weeks ago. But I did wear this same outfit again today.

Cami: Tucker for Target
Cardigan: J Crew Jackie in Pearl (LOVE this color. So versatile.)
Jeans: GAP Boyfriend Distressed
Shoes: Louboutin Flat Mary Janes

As you can see the outfit looked better with the cardi buttoned rather than open. (Sorry for the plain, non-smile face. I did have a good day.)
I hope to get back into the groove of the blog again. I do have some work outfits from last week I will be posting along with my “red” card haul.
Have a great evening!

I want to apologize. I have not been in the mood for blogging. September always seems to be the one month I can’t get it together and everything just sucks. But we’re half-way through, right? So forgive me if I don’t finish out the month strong. Ok?

Here’s what I recently purchased when “attempting” to make some returns at J Crew. You all know how that goes right? Especially on “new roll-out” day?

I returned these.

(I returned this because I love my Alma Mater blazer from Anthropologie. I also recently purchased the J Crew Outlet version of the Eden blazer in Iris and have the Wool Schoolboy Blazer in Redwood that I have yet to wear.)

(I bought this in Mink also and kept that one. $59.99 in store)

And brought home these.

Bici Tee (very cute, spokes are sequined)

Then I stopped by Ann Taylor to see if they had the matching belt to my Perfect Pumps in Porcini. They did.

And I also bought the Tiered Shirt with Grosgrain Trim in Smokey Mauve Yarn to get 25% off. I really wanted another pair of their Perfect Pumps but don’t need them so I held off.

Have a great day!

P.S. – I had a “mini-stop” at the J Crew Outlet on Sunday and saw they had the “Paris Tee” the “All Spice” Tee (from this post) and the Flower Sketch Tee in Olive Moss. All direct from the retail store and not an “outlet” version. I don’t recall pricing, sorry, but there was a % off all tees.
