Outfit of the Day | Mint & Brown, Tweed & Leather

SWEATER: 89th & MADISON via TJMAXX | TANK: H&M, old | SKIRT: DALIA COLLECTION via TJMAXX | HEELS: SAM EDELMAN PORTNEY | BAG: MELIE BIANCO via TJMAXX | RING: F21 | EARRINGS: F21

SAY HELLO TO MY LEETLE FRIEND!
The camera's back y'all! I won't always get home early enough to take advantage of the stellar light in my little shoebox, but we'll at least sprinkle some better photography in here now and again.

I felt a little more casual on the business-casual scale than I would have liked in this outfit, but my tan blazer is in my storage trailer and this sweater is stupid comfy and the courtrooms are stupid cold. And while I really like the leather details on this skirt, it's a twister. Know what I mean? Like you look down and all the sudden your zipper is in the middle and the lining's all funky and you look like the jackass who can't fight her way out of a pencil skirt?

Also, thank you guys so much for all the congratulations but I feel like I should point out that I'm in a temporary (awesome) subleased apartment working a temporary (unpaid!) internship and so real life big-girl-dom is still a (loooong) ways off.

    Love this outfit, especially that top! And hey, big-girl-dom may still be a ways off, but you're totally headed into the right direction, and we're all just super proud mama birds over here! ;)

  3. Twisty skirts are the worst! There are certain days where my outfit looks awesome until I move at all. Then my belt is all wonky, and my skirt is twisted and my shirt is coming untucked. And then I try to take outfit pictures and it's just a mess!

    Also, I really love your ring!

  4. Yay for your camera's return. You and your clothes are too cute for an iPhone. :) love this outfit, bummer the skirt doesn't stay put. I definitely think your internship is a stay in the right direction, I'm sure you'll make them want to hire you before you know it :)

  5. Love the colors of the tweed and mint top. I read on some blog that you can add like a rubber insert around your waist band and that should hold the skirt in place..haven't tried it myself yet though
