Things I Wore :: December 2018

It’s a week late and several dollars short, but here’s everything I wore in December!

Here’s what you need to know: I did a review of my Amazon Echo Look last month, which is how I keep track of all of these outfits. Do you need one? No. Should you get one if you like keeping track of what you wear every day? Absolutely.

I took off a lot of time over the holidays, so many of my pajama days are not pictured. No one needs to see my sloppy loungewear. You’re welcome.

And as always, if you have any questions about any of the pieces I’m wearing, leave a comment and I’ll try to remember!

12/1: We have a day/night situation to start off, with the first outfit being my errands/Pokemon Catching/Capitol Building Lighting outfit, and my second one being dinner at Bruno’s and some patio time at Cache. Coincidentally, my friend Erin also showed up in a black sweater and animal print skirt to dinner too, so clearly I’m very trendy.

12/2: More Christmas activities including lunch at Gus’s World Famous Recipe Chicken and “Christmas Frolic” at the museums downtown. They had like 1,000 cookies at the Statehouse!

12/3: Loved this outfit so much, I wore it to work. This skirt was a Trunk Club buy and I. Love. It.

12/4: Voted ✌️Also hit up our first Taco Kid night at Local Lime and I gotta tell you, any place that covers everything in yellow cheese slime is alright by me.

12/5: This was a favorite outfit last year, and it’s a great “I don’t wanna think” outfit this year. I just went to work. That’s it. Boring day.

12/6: I saw an adorable dress in the window of a boutique but didn’t buy it in time, so SheIn to the rescue. My friends asked if it was Gucci. I laughed. I wore it to dinner at Cantina Cinco de Mayo and then to watch improv at the Public Theater.

12/7: I was THRILLED when I put these boots on this morning. I’ve lost a little weight and they go up higher than they ever have before! Perfect way to end the week.

12/7 (again): Holiday party for my work at Heifer International. They said “Holiday Casual.” I said no.

12/8: Mr. AJ’s holiday party was the NEXT evening at the Marriott Hotel. Love this skirt from Blair Eadie’s collection with Nordstrom/Halogen!

IMG_0128.JPG

12/8 (again): Casual and comfy outfit to hit up a Christmas craft show at Lost 40 Brewery. I did not get any gifts but I did get some delicious spicy hot chocolate from Loblolly.

12/9: Oh, is this the same photo? Nope, I’m totally wearing different shoes. I’m so lazy that I wore the same outfit Saturday AND Sunday. We got up for coffee at Nexus before doing some Christmas shopping.

12/10: All black everything for work. How inspired.

IMG_0129.JPG

12/11: I ended up changing from a blouse under this dress to a vest over it because I was uncomfortable. It was a pretty comfy outfit for a day at a Facebook conference at The Rep.

12/12: Day 2 of FB conference. We ended up skipping the last session but I did get a free mini tripod for showing up the second day! Score.

12/13: Work and this cozy sweater again!

12/14: If I am wearing a hat, I have given up. I did get some pizza from Hideaway that evening though, which pretty much rocks.

IMG_0130.JPG

12/15: Road trip wear! We made a day trip to Edmond, OK to pick up my NEW CAR! It was a long drive but the guy was so nice and helpful and they had the exact one I wanted. This was a super comfy way to drive there and back!

12/16: Casual cardi / sweater combo for a kid’s Pokemon birthday party. I ended up putting on that muppet coat when we trekked over to Brewski’s to watch football.

12/17: LOVE this sweater so much, even though it’s not been cold enough to wear it most days. I guess all I did was go to work this day.

IMG_0132.JPG

12/18: And now, for some coat/outfit combos! I’m DYING over this star print dress from SheIn, even though I just realized that I have a short dress that’s almost this exact same print. Whatever, I love stars and it looks great with this bright coat.

12/19: Apparently, December is the month that I just wear the same outfit over and over again. It was so cute the first time, I wore it again for work. I am 95% sure these leggings will fall apart at some point, but I don’t care. I love them. If anyone knows of some side stripe leggings that will last longer, lemme know.

IMG_0133.JPG

12/20: Ugly Christmas sweater day at work! This dress is from Amazon. I ordered two (obviously) and then two more for my mom and sister so we could all match. Also, I’m really into decorative/costume headbands right now.

12/25: This is what I wore on Christmas day for cooking, baking, and game night with friends. It’s honestly super comfy and LOOK. PUGS.

IMG_0134.JPG

12/21: Okay, forgive me for doubling back but I wanted to put the Christmas outfits together. I wore this to work. Love this sweater from Mango right now! Honestly one of my favorite colors to wear.

12/26: I have no idea what we did this day.

12/31: Lol, this post is a mess. We went to Texas the weekend after Christmas, so I missed some days in between that and my pajamas. Here’s what I wore to New Year’s Eve dinner at Sushi Cafe - best last meal of the year! I changed into a skirt and flats when we decided to go to Stickyz for a band after that, but up to that point I was feeling pretty hot. Let’s pretend like my foundation matches my face.

And that’s a wrap on 2018, folks! See you at the end of this month!

Things I Wore :: November 2018

November was a weird month for me. It’s a little light on outfits, not gonna lie - between traveling and some health stuff, I did NOT get dressed. A lot. I could have taken daily photos in my amazing onesie from Aerie that I wore 95% of the time, but I’ll spare you and just link it (trust. you need one).

nov-1.jpg

12/1: This is not the last time you will see this outfit. Apparently Skirt + Sweater + Boots is my winter uniform. All I did was go to work and go get sushi.

12/3: Skipped a day working from home, so this is my Saturday outfit! It was a gorgeous day, with lots to do - I early voted, hit up Chili Fights in the Heights (I’m never eating chili again), saw some live music at Harvestfest, and ended the evening with a few old fashioneds at Big Orange.

12/5: Guess I didn’t get dressed that Sunday. Monday just went to work and then did some plate work at Flying Saucer with my co-workers.

12/6: Did I not get dressed again? This month is weird.

nov-2.jpg

12/7: Got this skirt from Atlantic Pacific’s collection with Halogen and I LOVE it. I used to have a green pleated skirt from Forever 21 I loved, and this feels like the slightly more adult version. I’m also really into deep greens this season, apparently.

12/8: One of my favorite giant sweaters for work and a birthday lunch with my friend Candice. We had champagne at work and I was really glad I wore a tank underneath because I got really hot.

12/9: I have discovered my curling wand again. Why am I not doing these Victoria’s Secret waves every day? Work followed by happy hour again for Candice’s birthday, because we celebrate birthdays like champs.

12/10: ???????????

nov-3.jpg

12/11: Sweater + Skirt + Boots. Love this sweater from a Trunk Club from last year. I’ve been watching too much American Horror Story and apparently wanted to do red eye shadow like Michael Langdon. I look like a demon.

12/13: I’m not even going to figure out where these skipped days are going anymore. SheIn dress I couldn’t resist because apparently I’m back into dresses again.

12/18: My hair looks like trash here but I got it done that day, I promise. Still love this dress from Old Navy.

nov-4.jpg

12/21: Super comfy travel outfit for our trip to Oklahoma City for Thanksgiving! Gap workout leggings are my FAVE.

12/26: I told you you’d see this outfit again.

12/27: I guess I’m back on board with the whole leopard print thing! And when I have no idea what to wear on top, it’s 99% of the time going to be this same button up and sweater combo. These pants from SheIn are really cute - but for some reason, my underwear refused to stay up while wearing them. I spent most of the day tugging at them like a weirdo.

nov-5.jpg

12/28: Another Atlantic Pacific x Halogen piece. This sweater is super cute but pills like crazy, so I have to shave it every time I wear it. I really wanted the blazer too but it was a little large and a little pricey for the material.

nov-6.jpg

12/29: Curling wand is out again. I’ve always wanted to wear sock booties with short pants, so here I am.

12/30: Look at me, I’m a rebel in a crop top at work. I ended up sending this skirt back for a smaller size since it was basically falling down by the end of the day, but I love the sweater material and I think it’ll be a nice addition to my winter wardrobe.

See you in December!








Things I Wore :: October 2018

My ultimate goal is to catch up on these enough that I can start doing them weekly. HA HA

October was a weather-y month. We had a lot of rain, some warm weather, and we finally got cool enough to pull out boots and sweaters! To say I am thrilled is a bit of an understatement. I pulled out a few favorites this month, copied some old outfits, and wore the heckin’ heck out of my Joie booties. MVP of the month for SURE. Here we go:

october-1.jpg

10/1: New contacts day, so I’m letting my eyeballs breathe. Honestly surprised I did this on Day 1. Express sweater and some Dillard’s private label flats that TORE UP my feet.

10/2: I have no idea what is going on here. It was a Tuesday so I must have worked from home here, but had to run errands. This is why people hate athleisure.

10/3: Clean hair and redemption for yesterday’s crimes. Trina Turk skirt, cute top I picked up from Trunk Club. Not pictured: A really cute cardigan I did not need because it’s still hot. We decided to return to our Cache happy hour tradition this month and this was a great idea.

october-2.jpg

10/4: Busy day of voice over work. I finally got my shoes back from the cobbler so I am wearing the heck outta them this week.

10/5: It is hot and I cannot be bothered anymore. This is technically shorts and a top (from Belk) so it just LOOKS like a romper. Shoes by Aquazurra that co-worker Abby almost stole off of my feet.

10/6: Mall / Apple Store / Beer fest kind of outfit. Weekend appropriate for sure. These shorts from H&M are AWESOME FYI - a little bootilicious but I love a high waist.

10/7 (not pictured): Just wore lounge clothes today - we heard some people cheering outside and decided to go down and see what football team they were cheering for. Oddly enough, it was the Browns and the Browns Fans of Little Rock have a standing appointment at Dugan’s to watch them all season. Their vigor has made me a browns fan now.

10/8: Oh look, it’s that shirt from Express I picked up at the mall on Saturday.

october-3.jpg

10/9: Not found, must’ve worked from home again

10/10: This dress still going strong! I love it! The weather was amazing so I met up with some friends on the Cache patio and soaked it up. My friend Candice has this dress too.

10/11: Concert outfit! I finally got to pull out these ridiculous Stuart Weitzman boots I bought on mega sale for the Thomas Rhett concert. I gotta tell you, I don’t know that I’ve ever received more compliments on a pair of shoes in one day, EVER. They’re sparkly. I love them.

10/12: Too much fun at the concert, so I went comfy for that Friday at work. The weather has cooled off beautiful and we’re off to the Arkansas State Fair this evening! I had the hot beef sundae, and this dress is from Old Navy.

october-4.jpg

10/13: And here’s where the rain kicks in. Y’all, it rained so much this day. The Razorbacks play in Little Rock once a year and it’s one of my favorite LR traditions, but this weather made it absolutely miserable. Thank goodness for friends with a giant tent. We skipped out on going to the game in favor of watching the game at our condo and eating brownie sundaes. This Zara rain jacket has been an absolute lifesaver on rainy days!

10/14: Brunch at EJ’s followed by Jersey Boys at the Robinson Music Hall. Old Navy dress strikes again but this time it’s cold enough for tights. After that, we hit up Lost Forty for a concert for Clarke Tucker (who absolutely should have won, keep voting blue y’all).

10/15: You may have caught on by now that my hair is still in french braids. Get over it, it’s been raining non-stop for days and this is the only way I can keep my hair in check. It’s cold and I didn’t feel like wearing anything today, so I’m wearing a giant blanket from the Loft.

10/16: What’s this, clothes on a Tuesday? You caught me (still trash hair though). I had a committee meeting at Heifer so I had to pull myself together. When my friend picked me up (at my house) to drive over there, she was like, “Do you have a hot date after this?” Nope. Just an over-achiever (except the hair, again, I don’t care).

10/17: FEELING this gorgeous dress I picked up from Trunk Club last year (I think it’s Treasure & Bond?). Another gorgeous afternoon so we happy hour at Cache. Also yes, I finally washed my hair. Judge away.

10/18: Feeling de ja vu? That’s because I wore this exact same outfit exactly one year ago. I saw it on Timehop and decided it was a great choice for the day. JustFab has restocked this cardigan and I was excited to pull out the ole 5050 boots for the first time this year.

10/19: Casual vibe for work. I later changed into a lace shirt for a dance party and Italian food.

october-6.jpg

10/20: Happy Pride, Arkansas! It was a little too warm for this cardigan in the sun, but perfect on the shady patio where we decided to watch the festivities.

10/21: Gorgeous cool day, so we biked around downtown and did the regular Sunday Bike2Brews tour. It was also Pokemon Go community day, so I caught a bunch of pokemon. Oh look, it’s those boots again.

10/22: Work stuff - Cute skirt from JCrew Factory and a cropped sweater from The Limited. I love this outfit even though it’s super simple.

october-7.jpg

10/23: SheIn is now actively stalking me on Facebook and Instagram. I had to have this sweater, even though the pearls click on my desk when I try to type. And look, more emerald. I have never been more predictable.

10/24: Another SheIn target but I LOVE this set. It’s so fun, I feel like a fancy pinata. I had to look extra cute today because I was taking headshots for the radio station. Then we did our normal Cache happy hour which was way more embarrassing this time because I had a giant run in my tights.

10/25: It’s raining. I wore a sweater from Asos.

10/26: Conference Day! I attended the Made by Few conference (for makers of the web!) instead of going to work so I had to make sure I was comfy cute for that.

october-8.jpg

10/27: Day 2 of MxF and my Nordstrom order from Atlantic Pacific x Halogen arrived just in time. This sweater is SO soft and cute!

10/28: There’s an Air Show at the Jacksonville Airforce Base and Mr AJ got us into the chalets, so of COURSE we were going to that (I love a VIP perk). It was actually 70, sunny and gorgeous so I didn’t even need a jacket. The Thunderbirds were really cool! Also peep appearance #4 of these Joie booties. I need to get them in black, yo. They’re so comfy, so cute.

10/30: Halloween Eve, peeps! I wore my favorite spooky sweater to work, and then we hit up a Halloween alley party downtown before getting food at Stickyz. I need to stock up on some more spooky stuff while it’s on sale, I love it.

10/31: Halloween party at work and IM A BASIC, DUH. Two days in a row with the peace sign, woof. I wore these ears every chance I got this month because they’re from the official Disney World store and I spent too much money on them, tbh. Especially since they’re halloween themed and I’ll only be able to wear them once a year. But I love them and that’s all that matters. We hit up some Scary-oke because it rained all night and Mr AJ won $100! Not for singing. For being born in the same year as the bill. Either way - boom.
