AJ Wears :: A blazer and jeans

I hate it when people call a particular outfit their "uniform". I've worn a few uniforms in my life - scrubs when I worked at a hospital, an ugly black polo when I worked at Chili's, various sports team and dance uniforms....none of them bring a warm fuzzy feeling to mind the way a blazer, skinny jeans, and striped tee do. If I had a uniform though, it would probably look something like this.

When I don't know what else to put on, it's stripes. When I want to look more polished, I add a blazer. And when I know I'm going to be hitting the mall hard, I pack my loafers. These are particularly fun because of the spikes.

I haven't decided if I'm going to do a shopping haul or not, but I had the most successful shopping weekend. My mom and sister and I are bad news when we go shopping together. I had a few things on my wishlist for the weekend - a black circle skirt, a floral blazer, and a really nice leather bag - and I managed them all (along with far too many extras!). My sister built a whole outfit after finding these adorable sunflower shorts at American Apparel. My mom said she bought mostly tops, while I seemed to grab only jackets. I don't do these big shopping weekends often, so it's fun to go splurge once in a while.
