AJ Wears :: A Yellow Spotted Skirt

I wore a lot of ruffled skirts in my early 20s. And then I completely forgot about them until earlier this summer, when they suddenly resurfaced and came back into my life. Now I want to wear them every day, because they’re all cute and flirty and look really nice with a cropped tee.

AJ Wears :: Yellow Plaid

Since 1995, Cher Horowitz has had the lock on yellow plaid. It does not matter what you wore, be it a full (and fabulous) skirt suit, or just a small backpack - someone will definitely make a comment about you looking, like, totally Cher-esque.

Now, thanks to a 90’s revival, you can find everything from sweatpants to full two-piece sets in Cher’s beloved plaid. Finally, a reason to dress like a fictional valley girl the other 364 days of the year.

AJ Wears :: Socks with Heels

When I go in on something, you guys know I go ALL IN, right? I couldn’t buy just one pair of fancy socks to try the socks and heels thing. I had to order 10 different pairs from Amazon so we could do a trial and error run before finding the perfect combination. This was simply the first effort.

Mr. AJ didn’t get it and made fun of me (standard). The guy at the coffee shop said he was digging the look. A couple of people work called them “cute”. I think next time I’ll try an open toe heel or a pair of slides, but I love the idea of cutesy socks with fancy shoes! It’s not like they’re actually keeping our feet warm or anything, but I’m pretending that socks + non-sock shoes is like winterizing them.

What I’m saying is, stay tuned for more socks outfits…whether you like it or not.

Side note: I can see people posing for photos all the time on this parking deck from my house, and I like to spy on them with binoculars. Now I’m the one casually posing during my lunch hour like a doofus, but I’m not up there to make fun of myself.

I would have definitely made fun of me during the next photo.

So casual. So normal. I am actually laughing at myself since it was just me and a self-timer, but I don’t know at what. The wind? The fact that I can’t put on a coat properly? Because I feel like an idiot? Likely all of the above.
