AJ Wears :: Silver Flats

So, I have a new love, and it's silver shoes. They're all like, "Hey! I'm flashy and awesome!" but somehow still subtle enough for work. Plus, I think we can all agree they look pretty sharp with black.

And now we can address the tweed vest in 90 degree heat. It wasn't bad, I promise. I am, however, already counting down the days until October.

Vest, Forever 21 (exact).
Top, MICHAEL Michael Kors (similar from Target).

AJ Wears :: A Pink Tweed Jacket

Today's outfit was sort of OP-inspired. Nobody does jackets like that girl! I haven't worn this jacket since last spring (the colors make it feel decidedly spring-y to me), so it was time to give it another run. I gotta say...I'm not the biggest spring fan. The weather is nice (when it's not raining) but the color palate really leaves me feeling...meh. Pastels are not my thing. I've been shopping for a few spring-like items to soften up my wardrobe this week, but haven't had a lot of luck. I scheduled my first StitchFix, though, and I'm hoping they give me some really fun new options I wouldn't have considered otherwise! I'm making an effort though, you guys. Yesterday florals? Today pinks and neons? Baby steps.

Jacket, Anthropologie (old // kind of similar).
Tee, Old Navy (similar from LOFT).
Pants, The Limited (exact - I'm wearing petite).
Bag, Kate Spade (cute bow bag from Target!).
Heels, Gianni Bini (adorable silver flats from XXI // similar heel from Michael Antonio).

AJ Wears :: A Tweed Skirt

I could tell you a lot of stories about today's outfit. About how I was feeling a little Clueless when I put it all together, and the girls I went to happy hour with were feeling Britney Spears and Cruel Intentions with it. I could talk about how the top button wouldn't stay closed so I used some double stick tape from the art department to make it lay flat. And I could mention that it was the coldest day of the week by far, and somehow I missed out on wearing a real jacket. But all you really need to know is, I really loved wearing this look.

...And that I stayed at happy hour for so long that the sun went down and we had to take these under a street lamp. Also, the special sauce on the sliders at Big Whiskey's is mustard. Ew.
