AJ Wears :: A Leopard Skirt

Did you look up one day and wonder where the heck everyone on Instagram got a leopard silk skirt? Me too. I’m assuming it’s because this particular brand sent their ($200!) skirt to everyone to post about. The side of my brain that has seen The Devil Wears Prada 500 times knows it’s probably because some large brand showed them at Fashion Week, because now there’s a bias skirt in every shop you come across.

Don’t care either way, it’s an instant outfit, breezy for summer, and super cute. I picked mine up for $20 at Forever 21 because girl gets that it’s a fleeting trend and I’m not gonna spend hundreds on it.

Speaking of fleeting trends, I’ll address the sport sandals too. I don’t know why I’m so partial to them. They’re horrifying and weird, but I LOVE the funky casual look (doesn’t hurt that they’re super comfy too). I blame Prada and the fact that I slid into my mid-30s this summer. Next stop: Muumuu city.

AJ Wears :: Pink and White

Still catching up on all of the outfits I never posted on here. Mostly so I can pin them, and link items I think you guys might like. Definitely to justify the $10 a month I spend on hosting.

Like this one, that I wore to work, even though it’s probably a little extra for work and any qualified business casual expert would say that a spaghetti strap is completely inappropriate for the office.

But as I said on Instagram. Anything can be work wear if you just don’t care. You do you, bb.

AJ Wears :: A White Pleated Top / Dress

I’m honestly not sure how Zara intended for anyone to wear this thing. It’s marked as a top on their website, but on my 5’2” frame it’s certainly long enough to be a tunic, if not a full dress. But I do suspect they want you to wear it with pants, since the thing is entirely unlined. It’s certainly the sort of piece you’d want to wear something under - hence my black sports bra + spanx shorts situation here. The entire thing may be destined to become a bathing suit coverup one day.

What’s that? They make these things called slips, in nude and whites even so you CAN’T see what’s going on under my dress? Shhhhh. Never heard of it.
