AJ Wears :: A Floral Skirt

There's a leather jacket that went with this outfit. I left it in my car after lunch because the weather was a delicious sunny and 70. A few of my office mates and I took our laptops down to the new Damgoode downtown and enjoyed an afternoon of working on their patio. It's my favorite thing about working in digital - your office is anywhere you are.

Also, meet my new boyfriend, Kramer. I've long admired the Fendi Bag Bugs, but spending $900 on something so superfluous and ridiculous would be grounds for all of you leaving me. I did a quick ebay search for "furry bag charms" and found a lot of adorable bug options for WAY less - around $25 a pop. Is this the weirdest little dude? Yes. And I love him. I've been trying to add a little more whimsy back into my wardrobe, so mission accomplished.

AJ Wears :: Snake Print Skirt

Last night's event at The Promenade was SO great! Amazing food, good wine, and a great opportunity to swap some business cards with fellow young professionals. I went slightly business, slightly happy hour for tonight's look - I almost didn't even keep this skirt from the Altuzarra for Target collection but it was so great, I had no choice! I also snapped these photos via my husband's new iPhone 6 - what a jerk. I'm still stalking the 6+....wish me luck!

AJ Wears :: A Navy Pencil Skirt

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. As I continue to upgrade my wardrobe piece by piece, there are a few that I'll hold on to (until they fall apart) regardless of where they came from. This skirt (which I swear is navy) is one of those things (it was $8 from Forever 21). It's just a piece of jersey material sewn in the vague shape of a pencil skirt (which I kept getting tangled in every time I went to the bathroom today). But it's comfortable to sit in all day and looks pretty darn professional for something that was probably a pillowcase in its former life.

No, these shoes are not comfortable. Always keep flats at your desk. Look! Bow belt, bow bag. So matchy.

These earrings are awesome. First Lady in the front, last lady out of the clurb in the back. And my hair is thrown into my half-hearted attempt at a messy chignon after seeing this Birchbox video yesterday. I figured out halfway through the day that I had "Leslie Knope Man Hair." Parks & Rec fans, YOU know.

Top, Theory (similar from same).

Heels, Marceliana from JustFab.
Bag, Kate Spade Beau Bag (exact in other colors - wait for mega sale).
