Giving Up

I tried to copy this yesterday^

Instead I looked like this:

Top: TJ Maxx
Pants: Anthropologie
Shoes: Steve Madden

I gave up on several things yesterday. The first surrender of the day involved putting my hair in a bun instead of dealing with middle school children grabbing it or asking if they could touch it. And I decided to take the ever-classy "mirror shot" instead of finding a real place to take pictures.  It's probs going to be that way until a professional photographer decides to adopt me as his muse, or I get a boyfriend.

Mrs. O + Target

{Photo via Mrs. O}

Before you get excited, Mrs. Obama isn't part of the next Target collaboration, she's just wearing dresses from there on major public appearances. And she frequently repeats things from her closet. I love it.

Two Miracles

Dress: Anthropologie
Belt: Target
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bags under eyes: Employment

Miracle #1: 
 I wore this on my very first day of teaching 7th grade...a day that I actually survived! I left school that day feeling tired, triumphant, and overwhelmed. 

Miracle #2:
The other day Anthropologie had an additional 25% off all sale merchandise and I found this dress marked down to $9.95. In short, I paid less than $8 when it was all said and done. 

So which is the more miraculous miracle? I'll let you decide.

P.S. I'm doing a few posts over at The Date Report. Be sure to check out my very first one HERE.

Copy Cat: Missoni for Target Flats

So these flats went like hotcakes when Target put them on the shelves a few weeks ago:

(but sold out in stores and only available in size 12 online)

I decided I liked them far too long after they were gone but was glad to stumble across these shoes on Aldo's website the other day:

Magen flats, $14.99 at Aldo (Orig. $45)
...and you can find codes for an additional 15% off, making them even cheaper! And has free shipping on all orders! 

What do you think? Would you settle for Aldo's version?



Sorry for the long absence- it's been a busy/rough week. But at least it's cool enough to wear cozy clothes all weekend long!

Copy Cat: Crafty Friday

Yesterday, a friend introduced me to Ornamentea in downtown Raleigh. After coveting this necklace from Anthropologie, I decided to make something similar. 

Anthro's version: $19.95 (Orig. $38)
My version: $3.25

Happy weekend! I'm heading out of town for a wedding....what are YOU doing?
