AJ Wears :: A flowy top

I'm one of those people who gets something in the mail and then puts it on IMMEDIATELY. After a weird stretching incident with my white jeans I'd had for years, I decided to replace them with a pair from JustFab because I've had great luck with their denim. Once you find your right size, I love the rise and how they fit around the booty. So when these arrived yesterday, I was like, "Yay! I'm wearing these tonight!"

I wore this to the Brew Haha at the Rep - free pizza and beer! - to see Avenue Q. It's a seriously funny show! The bad news bears were my favorite. I always get a lot of compliments on this top...a random find at The Limited. I actually have no idea why I bought it, but it's a perfect breezy top for a night out. As for the shoes, what do I really have to say? They're adorable. I'm having a major moment with wedges right now.

AJ Wears :: A sequined sweater

Today was a day on my feet, so I decided to stick with shorts so I wouldn't get so warm moving around. As it turns out, the ballroom I was working in was FREEZING and I spent a majority of the afternoon wishing for a snuggie. Glad I went with the layers on top!

Don't care. Still a cute outfit. I saw a JCrew something or other on pinterest from a zillion years ago that was stripes and sequins on top that I just adored but was long gone, so when I found this one on clearance at The Limited, I thought it was a solid purchase.

PS - totally wrote this whole post on the beach! I had about an hour and a half between the last event of the day and the beach party tonight so I took some much needed me-time and layed out. But the nerd in me couldn't just relax so I blogged instead. GO FIGURE.

AJ Wears :: A striped blazer

You know how you sometimes take pictures and expect them to turn out, and they even look good on your camera screen, but you go home and try to edit them and they're just terribly exposed? That happened to me today - TWICE. Between the humidity here fogging up my lens and what I assume is just poor exposure and too much backlight, I was really disappointed in today's photos. But what I LOVED was today's outfit(s).

Greetings from Hilton Head! Today was our work day of the conference, which was basically touring the property, meeting about last minute details, and setting up for our conference attendees to start arriving tomorrow. I went with something comfortable - jeans and a tee - and added this blazer for something fun (and because I knew our work room would be freezing!). Then that evening, we went out for our big staff dinner at this place called the Crazy Crab and I switched out my jeans for shorts and wedges for a fun evening look!

Picked up the wedges on Target clearance a few weeks ago for $10 - the shorts are from Limited on clearance for only $15! I like collecting a few new things before I go out of town for work so I feel fresh and ready to tackle whatever the week brings me. This week so far has brought me lots of fried seafood and my first real experience with oysters - I've tried them before but never eaten more than one, so last night at Crazy Crab I resolved to give them a fair shot and discovered I quite like them with tabasco and lemon. I think it's the whole experience of shooting a gross blob out of a shell.

Today the madness begins...wish me luck! If anything goes wrong, I'll just run out to the beach and take a 15 minute break. Or stay there the rest of the day. Either way.
