AJ Wears :: A bright red blazer

Today's story is short and sweet. It's cold, and rainy, and it makes me want to do nothing but roll around in bed and eat chocolate. I still have to get out and interact with the general public, though, so I threw on my trusty wellies and hit the streets (ie target mall etc etc).

And everywhere I went, people complimented my outfit or my boots. And every time, I would say, "Thank you! It's the only way I can get dressed on days like these - if I wear something bright and fun!"

And that's the truth. Then my jacket split down the back and I moped the rest of the day. I didn't even want to take pictures I was so distraught - but I did some in the backyard anyway (so no one would see the giant hole in my jacket). The end!

AJ Wears :: A striped jacket

There are some days an outfit comes together in one try. And then there are days where you put on 6 different tops and 4 different jeans just trying to make it work. I knew I wanted to wear this jacket today, and I thought it would look killer with these shoes, but all of the in-betweens just weren't working for me.

I finally gave up and settled on these boyfriend jeans and a ruffled top and went to the mall for cheese fries. I know when to wave the white flag.

The end of the story is, even though no one at the mall said I looked cute (uh, that never happens #vaintweets) I still FELT cute. Also I swear this jacket is navy in person and I can't wait to wear it with about three other outfits I've dreamt up before it gets warm. Also, I must have been reading too much Atlantic-Pacific lately because I was trying to look all classy and elusive in these photos and most of them just looked like I needed to go to the bathroom.

Hey. These little stories I tell can't all be winners.

AJ Wears :: A printed skirt

I've never understood what was classified as "sportswear". It looks like blazers and skirts and khakis to me, but if you asked me what sportswear was, I'd probably say yoga pants. I could google it, but I'm a very busy blogger and have absolutely no time for malarkey like that. The end of this story is, I think these sandals are sporty. Like little basketballs or something. I don't know why, but that's why I'm describing this outfit as sporty. But it's a skirt...so it's also sweet. Get it?

This skirt arrived this weekend from Amazon and I loooooove it. Originally sold for $90, I snagged it for $20. I'm looking to add more fun skirts into my wardrobe, and this one is much nicer than anything I would have found at Forever. Yay, look at me, I'm trying to be versatile and make smarter purchases. Hurrah!

Fun necklace made of rings. I could take it apart and wear them if I wanted to, but then I wouldn't have a necklace. Today we hit up Gap friends and family sale and then ate some burritos at Moe's. This is what you wear  when you do that. LIVING THE DREAM.
