4: Magpie Tendencies

Chambray: H&M | Sweater: J.Crew | Skirt: J.Crew | Flats: Me Too Patty | Belt: Target | Watch: Fossil

I wore this to work without the belt or the chambray underneath and I spent the whole day feeling like something was missing. You'd think that when you put on your favorite sweater and your favorite pencil skirt, you'd have an automatic win. Apparently it's not that easy. So when I came home to change before going out to sushi for a friend's birthday I came up with this, and all I could think was "where have you been all day?!"

Sidebar: sushi is another one of those things I didn't know I liked until I met Boyfriend. The list is now: wine (white only, don't be cray), sushi, cheesecake, creme brûlée, asparagus, pumpkin donuts, and cherry Coke. I know. What have I been eating all these years?

I was iffy on wearing this much sparkle to the office, but every woman I work with complimented it, and the only "well... that's a whole lot of shiny" comment came from a guy. And we all know that's pretty standard.

Also, just realized I'm red, white & blue for Election Day. Happy no more f---ing political ads voting :)

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy.

  1. Ok I am catching up today hahaha, it's me again :-) Long time not seen :-P

    Sam, I have that sometimes too and then by coincidence the things come up and I add it to my outfit. the cambray and belt gives your look that finish touch, which makes it interesting- different pattern and layering.

    Ok I already commented on the cheesecake phobia you had before - CRAZY and what do I read now? WINE? *head shaking* hahahaha Better later than never right? :-)

    Have a great day dear :-*

  2. I love the little details of this outfit, pretty lady! The chambray and leopard mellow out the sparkle perfectly! I am so attracted to shiny objects too! Happy to hear you discovered the amazingness that is sushi!

    1. The OCD/ADD combo is a rare beast, but it exists :) Love me some shiny. And HOW did I live before sushi? What did I eat when I was in the mood for raw seafood?!

    1. Va-va-dirty!!! ;) I wanted it sooo bad in navy, but the gray and I are slowly becoming friends. And by slowly I mean, it still has sequins, I forgave it on sight.

  10. hahah, no more political ads! THANK THE SWEET BABY JESUS.

    You look adorable and the great part is that you can re-wear it closer to the holidays and then no boy can say anything! Those are the rules.
