OOTD: A color encore...

First thing's first: I had a very good and productive day yesterday.

1. I finally found out about my financial aid, and looks like we're getting more than I thought, which is great. Especially with the whole house thing looming... no one wants a mortgage + a lack of funding. So, crisis averted!

2. As I mentioned yesterday, my new closet has shoe cubbies. That fact alone will probably put a smile on my face for some time to come. I'm definitely planning on being really organized and creative with my new closet and will make sure to do closet photos when we move in.  (side note: for those of you asking for pics, I'll be sure and do those... eventually. I'm a little embarrassed by my poor decorating skillz, so although I'm exercising my design-bone, I'm a novice. And you have to bare with me. Merci.)

3. I was quite productive shopping yesterday! I got two new cardigans (here and here) and a fantastic new pair of pants. As you may know, I've been in the market for non-jean pants and finally found them. They are the Hinge silk pants, and as a quick review: they run TTS and are made of the softest and prettiest silk. Fabulous... I recommend for anyone in the market for the "soft/easy pant" look.  (Outfits with them to come.) I've been so bad about getting staple-pieces recently, so these new additions will maximize my closet and hopefully even save me some moolah in the future.

4. I, like many of you, realized how underwhelming the Anthropologie sale really is, and saved myself some serious dough. :)

Anyway, on to an outfit. With PINK. MORE PINK.

(By the way, still not sure this all works together-- something about the blazer and shorts combo? I think I'm worried about the proportions. I think it's ok, but still not 100% positive... this is what these photos are for, lovies!)

(hahaha... that face! I was trying to be fierce, and then started to laugh...)

Top: BCBG pink tee
Blazer: Zara Basics blush blazer
Shoes: Steve Madden Tristanos
Necklace: Bakers multi-chain necklace


  1. that zara blazer looks fantastic with the shorts!

  2. I like the idea of the blazer with the shorts. I think it looks totally fierce!

  3. Me oh my do I heart that blazer. And I also dig it with the shorts. *fierce*

    Those shorts are so cute!

  5. Congrats on the funding! Can't wait to see pics of the house (and by 'house' I mean closet!)

    I think the OOTD is perfect with the proportions... the shorts are SHORT so as long as you wear them to the appropriate event you'll looks super hot :) Your legs girlfriend... your legs!

  6. Love the entire outfit! Super super chic! If I felt I could pull them off, I'd soo try those ruffle shorts ... *is tempted* ... seriously, great ensemble

    And congrats on the house/shoe cubbies! I'm in the process of moving into a new house too and also feel shaky about the decorating part. Ugh. But I bet your house will end up looking FAB! You've got such an awesome sense of stylishness, and girl, your house will probably reflect it.

    (And thanks for the inside scoop on the Dallas Anthros ... I ended up visited 3 of them, haha!)

  7. Sigh. I love that jacket. I love it so much that I think I need to go hunt it down now.

    Congrats on the financial aid!

  8. lol! Yay! Glad you enjoyed the Anthros... which did you like best? And
    congrats to YOU on the house, too! I'm going to B&N this weekend and buying
    all the house books I can, haha :)

  9. The shorts + blazer are cute...try nude heels instead of black, they'll make your legs look super loooooooong. :)

  10. this outfit is so fab it's actually one of my faves of yours to date! I absolutely love it on you!

  11. I am obsessed with your ruffle shorts. Argh, I might have to venture into Urban very soon.
