AJ Wears :: A Beret, Kind of

A couple of things.

A) I struggled with this beret. I was thinking, “Oh, I’m so cool, look at me with my quelle femme féroce vibe in my little hat.” And then when I saw the photos, it looked all wrong, propped up on the back of my head like a marshmallow floating in cocoa. Later observation of some far cooler girls on Pinterest led me to realize that it’s supposed to go closer to my forehead. You know, like a hat.

B) I also feel the need to confess that I never wore this jacket. I took it with me when I left the house, thinking perhaps it was colder than it was. But when I tried to put it on for the photos, I was thwarted by tiny arm holes fighting against my sweater sleeves. So here I am, draping it casually over my shoulders in the ultimate blogger power move. The color looked good with the outfit in photos and what is blogging if not a big fat lie? I could make a career out of Photoshopping trees out of the back of pictures and making my arms look a little thinner (JUST FOR ME, OKAY??). Victoria’s Secret catalog, call me.

3. Remember that time I tweeted about walking my dog with a purse strap? This is that purse, and that is why there is no shoulder strap on this purse. We couldn’t find Zoey’s leash so I grabbed this as a substitute. It never found its way back to the purse. C’est la vie.

AJ Wears :: A Fiesta Dress

Who knew a dress with yarn on the sleeves could be this much fun? SheIn sent me this dress and I had *so* much fun wearing it. I always like to experiment with weird stuff from them, and this was a total hit.

I tossed it on for work, totally forgetting it was our company's big 10th birthday party that day. Not only did I get an insane amount of compliments on it from co-workers, strangers actually stopped me to say how much they loved it. I have to admit, I loved it too - super comfy, fun to wear. And yes...it has pockets. It transitioned seamlessly from work to happy hour that evening, and had I not dropped a meatball on it I probably would be wearing it again today.

And yes, it went perfectly with my work party hat. Boom!

AJ Wears :: A Bunch of Old Navy

Oh hiiiiiiiiiiiii there. Happy Friday.

To say that I've been slacking in my extra-curricular department lately would be an understatement. I either need to cut down on jobs, hobbies, or both. Or perhaps I should just quit sleeping? It's honestly cutting into my video games and Sephora shopping schedule.

Speaking of Sephora, you can tell I'm getting old, because I bought alllllllll skincare from the Rouge preview sale (20% of Rouge with code YESROUGE). Drunk Elephant, Dr. Jart+, and Peter Thomas Roth, come to me. Let us hydrate together. Since I couldn't let myself not do at least something fun, I added some falsie tweezers from Tarte into my basket. Truly, truly going wild.

Anyway, here's something I wore to work because it's still hot. It's all from Old Navy because they have comfortable clothes and I don't like things touching my body right now. I saw a woman yesterday wearing full pants, long sleeves, and knee high boots and I thought lady...calm down.
