I realize now I have been wearing a uniform since last week…button down shirt, sweater, ankle toothpick jeans and boots. I’ll throw on a blazer if it’s a little chilly and I have to run to the store. I have two pair if the jeans and I do everything but sleep in them. Absolutely love them.

Here are yesterday and today’s outfit. I even did similar plaid shirts. I’m so predictable sometimes.

All items J Crew
Factory Eden Blazer in Plum
Anthro Pebbled & Primped Boots

All items J Crew
Saturday Sweater in Marled Bronzed Avocado (Sz Small)
Short Chalet Boots in Desert Brown

Sommers Plaid Perfect Shirt – Size 8 – Again, I have to accommodate my shoulders and upper arms so I always wear an 8 in the Perfect Shirts. This has some pretty colors in it and I have many sweaters and cardigans to wear with it.

Saturday Sweater – This is very soft and runs big. I normally wear a Medium to accommodate my shoulders and upper arms but the small was loose and slouchy and soft (I said that right?). The Marled Pulp Alabaster looks more like a Citron or bright yellow and not so pastel or light like the online pic. I may order the Marled Bluegrass. The color looks so pretty.

Have a great evening. I’ll have some more J Crew reviews tomorrow.

What a weekend! Very glad that is behind me. Paintball was a lot of fun but I am so sore from running, twisting, falling, squatting, oh, and getting shot at. I have a bruise on my thigh that is the size of a softball. All from one little bitty paintball. That will be there for a few weeks so no mini skirts until it’s healed.

The boys ate everything! Even some of hubby’s “low-cal/diet” food. They were raiding the pantry at midnight for food and drinks. They all had a lot of fun and hopefully were really tired yesterday. I know The Boy was.

Here’s what I wore to the office last week. It was raining a lot so I wore the Riley’s there and changed shoes

Blazer – J Crew Eden
Cardigan – J Crew Scalloped Zipper Cardigan
Cami – J Crew Trevi Shell
Necklace – J Crew Simple Pearl & Box Chain Necklace (I don’t see it online.)
Jeans – Gap Essential (Love these jeans!)
Boots – Kate Spade Riley Rain Boots
Heels – Manolo Blahnik Black Campari

Here’s Friday’s OOTD that I wore running around getting the food the boys ate.

Tees – J Crew Perfect Fit V-Neck, J Crew Elk Tee
Jeans – Gap Curvy
Flats – J Crew

And here’s what I’m wearing today.

Cardigan – TJ Maxx
Cami – Anthropologie Buds & Stripes Top
Jeans – Gap Curvy
Flats – J Crew

This top was styled at Anthro with the Field Game Cardigan. I found this cardi at TJ Maxx (pre-ban) for $12.99. I used the tie from the top to belt the cardi.

We are having rainy weather this week and it’s so easy to put on lounge wear. But, I’ll try to post my OOTDs daily since I’m “shopping my closet”.

I was inspired by Joyce this morning to get out of my work-at-home sweats and layer on some “real” clothes.

Here’s my Polyvore.


WAH OOTD by audreybella featuring J Crew


And here’s my IRL…I have a turtleneck, the Pewter Rosette Tee, Cashmere Argyle Sparkle Cardigan and the Velvet Eden Blazer.

I’m glad I changed clothes.

Part 2…
Textured Jersey Necklace Tee in Soft Willow – I already have this in Warm Clove and this mint green color is really pretty too. I sized down to a Small in this tee.
Slub cotton beaded-blossom tee – Sized down to a Small in this. Not sure if I’ll keep it…too many tees, too many embellished tees.

Slub Retro Floral Tee (not online) – Again, in a small. The rosettes are cute but I may not keep.
Elizabeth Ruffle Shirt – In White and Lavender. I know, more ruffles but these aren’t overpowering and the collar is somewhat of a mandarin collar.
Velvet Eden Blazer in Darkest Indigo – on sale for $99.99.
There were other new pieces but more for a colder climate. Here in South Texas we just don’t have the opportunity to wear thick sweaters and coats.

I have meetings in my office several days next week so I’ll actually get to wear some of my new stuff. Can’t wait and IRL outfit pics will be posted.

Yay! Not only are the J Crew Fall arrivals now in store but I received my rewards card today too!

Below are pictures…I’ll post better ones of the purchases later and add more comments but I wanted to get these out here.
