I took these pics a while ago.. like last month. I’m good about taking outfit pics as you can see from my Instagram. It’s writing these posts that is the hard part. I mean, what am I supposed to talk about? I don’t even remember what happened the day I wore this. And I can’t recount my day today because it has nothing to do with this outfit.So, I’ll just leave you with a tip.. If you’re getting tired of your tops, wear a cardigan buttoned up…but not all the way. Unbutton the first button for a sexy librarian look. If you unbutton two or more, you’re just scandalous. Add a broach for the full librarian look (or a flower like I did here) but wear jeans to keep it cool.

What tuck?

thrifted Gap shirt ($6), Forever 21 necklace ($6), thrifted Ralph Lauren pants ($5), JCPenney heels (free), vintage bag ($15)

I had to bust these circus pants out again…especially after I saw this girl’s outfit on Pinterest. (Beth copied her too!) I even did the obligatory half-tuck!! ..until I went to the bathroom for the umpteenth time. Then it was annoying. It started feeling too dishevelled and messy and the OCD Elaine in me wouldn’t have it. So I tucked it in for the rest of the day. I feel sooo much better now that I got that off of my shoulders!!!! I always feel dishonest when I don’t wear what I post…

Two days in a row

Um, I totally wore this shirt two days in a row to work. I hope nobody noticed how gross I am… (Someone please tell me they’ve worn a shirt twice in a row… I can’t be the only gross one out in the blogosphere. Or maybe I can…… This is getting awkward.) But I had to to recreate this GCOGH ensemble. I love the yellow, blue, and white together and can’t believe I never thought of it before!! I thought I was smarter than this!

I’m wearing a thrifted navy blazer ($3), J.Crew Factory white shirt (gift), thrifted Forever 21 yellow jeans($6) I skinnied, and JCPenney heels (free) with a vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3).

And I can’t let you go about your day without your giveaway reminder… Peach ruffle cardi. Go!
