AJ Wears :: A top and jeans

Some nights, the classic top and jeans combo is the most appropriate. I donned this get up to Local Lime for my monthly book club, which usually consists a lot more of gabbing and eating than talking about any books. Let's face it, we read more tweets than we do literature so that's what we're going to talk about.

As you read this, I'm on a plane and LA bound! I'm hoping I'll have time to blog a few trip outfits for you next week and put together a packing guide. Don't forget about Friday Favorites tomorrow - that's still going up and I'm looking forward to sharing my remix for the week with you.

If you want to follow along with my California adventure, I'm sure I'll be overloading Instagram with vacation brags (@ajwearsclothes).

Friday Favorites Remix :: Red stripe dress

 This red striped dress was a big hit last week! In light of cooler weather, I thought it would be fun to remix by layering under another dress. I feel like normal people who read blogs always ask if anyone really does the layering dresses or dresses as a skirt/top thing, so the answer is - yes. I do, anyway. And this combo was actually pretty comfy. Look at my ladybug shoes (that's what my husband called them).

 Pretty standard outfit - went to Arby's and the mall and picked up a few birthday gifts for my husband, whose birthday is today! Happy b-day, BB! Go shorty...it's your birthday...Anyway, this was a perfect little errand running outfit and I love how adding a second dress gave it a fresh vibe. Turns out this LBD I got for Austin is pretty dang versatile. And here's how I wore the stripes last week!

AJ Wears :: A floral tank dress

Today's post was going to be about wearability, until I saw how short this dress ended up being. I have no business explaining wearability to anyone in a dress this short. I'm not apologizing for it either. I like short dresses, and I've always gotten in trouble for it. I like to explain it away by saying, "But I'M short, so I have to wear shorter things to make my legs look longer and thus, make me look taller."

No doubt, this was an outfit more suited to girls night out or a fashion show, but when I get dressed in the morning, I pretty much just put on what I feel like for the day, regardless of what I'll actually be DOING. I'm happy to report I went to the studio to record my radio show for the day, and then dropped by Target to pick up a meat tenderizer and toilet paper. SO GLAMOROUS!

Then some dude asked if I needed help with my car. After explaining I was fine, just taking pictures of my outfit, he offered to take them for me and I curled up in a ball and died politely declined. Who's the weirdo now, y'all? It's me. It's aaaaalllllllways me.
