Fryday

skinnies: ambiance // shirt: forever 21 (exact) // cardigan thing: thrifted, CA // boots: h&m // hat: UO (similar) // necklace: thrifted, IA (similar) // belt: thrifted, VT // bag: thrifted, ME

Phew! I'm so happy today is Friday (I know, I know -- quite the original sentiment). This week was insane -- I worked a ton, my mom got into town last night, my sister is nine months pregnant and due on Wednesday (yippeeeeee!), I'm moving across the country in less than two weeks (and have packed nothing), the cats woke me up in the middle of the night by knocking over a full-length mirror (nothing broke, but a loud crash is a disconcerting way to start your day at 4 am), we have a Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that's been staring me down all afternoon, and it's Passover so I'm avoiding all my favorite foods. (Bread! Pasta! Bagels! I miss you guys.)

All this manifested itself in a rather casual look for yesterday -- I actually wore this weird cardigan situation as another foray into "last chance Thursday;" what do you think? Keep or toss? It was perfect for the insanely gorgeous weather we've been having, but I think it's pretty unflattering. For whatever reason, I just can't bring myself to part with it just yet. (Ask me sometime next week if that's still the case -- I expect I'll be throwing things in boxes and bags at random in preparation for moving and will feel no attachment to anything I own).

  1. A mirror breaking in the middle of the night would scare me so much! I'm glad it was only the cats. I am also a last minute packer for moving house, and it always works out in the end ;)

  2. how did i not know you had a nose ring? it's perfect. my nose is too jew-y for a ring, but if i had one, it would be a circle ring like yours. i super love that top, but could go either way on the cardi.

    1. Ummm, probably because I take all my pics on an iphone so detail shots are not really things that happen in my world yet (real camera soon!). Y'know, I didn't think I could pull off a nose ring until I just decided I didn't care and got one anyways, so if you want one, I say go for it!

  6. I'm with Nicole on the nose ring.. If I had the nose for it, I'd totally get one! Although.. not so sure my mother would appreciate it's awesomeness. I like the cardigan thingy, I duno, it's just interesting and I like it. If that's any help at all, ha.

    Annnnd. i love that beanie. I've got a serious thing for beanies, yet I only own one. May have something to do with the fact that it's above 80 degrees here 76% of the year, but I'm not quite sure ;)

    1. True story -- beanies are kinda the best, no? Also, my mother had a conniption when I got my nose pierced, but... no regrets (though I also didn't think I could pull it off). Now I love it. You should do it!

  7. I love how you called it a weird cardigan situation--that's exactly what I would call it! If it were mine, I wouldn't keep it 'cause I can't think of how I'd wear it. But, it looks adorable on you so if you like it I would keep it!

    Anyways, I'm just loving the purse and the shoes!! I just found an awesome vintage purse at a thrift shop and I'm really obsessing over purses right now! (ok, my friend found the purse...but I bought it!)

  9. You have a flapper fly-ness going on in that first picture. I am not sure as far as keep/toss, but it looks light as a feather, so it's not going to take up much space in a box... seems like a decision that can safely be deferred.

    I wore my Madewell dress yesterday to visit Madison :-)

  10. Hmm... other than the last pic where your arm got lost I say keep :) Happy Easter and good luck Aunty Lily

    1. Hi Annie! I'm moving to Maine, which I'm thrilled about in the long-run but totally freaked out in the short -- by which I mean, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PACK UP EVERYTHING I OWN? Ridiculous!

  13. I love the pattern on that silky cardigan. I think it's a keep and I'd love to see you style it belted maybe.

    Blessings and good luch with your move!!

  14. I'm so very glad to have found you through a tip from Sarah. My vote is to keep that sheer cardi, since this outfit rocks! And, I'm happy to tell you that that necklace you've styled so perfectly is our Gatsby necklace!
