A small change in pace

Sorry about the two random posts! I am working on a new element to the blog that involves Polyvore, and it seems to have gone a bit nuts.

As for the new segment on the blog, I was thinking that, rather than going AWOL on the days that life gets in the way of photographing my daily looks, I’d do some Polyvore sets. For example, remixing one item 3 ways, themed outfits, or looks that incorporate recent trends.

And on days I’m just really unhappy with what I came up with, I would do a post called “Wish I Wore,” where I post what I wore, why it doesn’t work, and a set that utilizes one or more of the items from that outfit in a better way.

Would any of you have interest in reading posts like that?

Just for fun, here’s a set of what I wore today, since I was running errands from 12-7 and didn’t get back until after dark:

Fall Uniform

date 09-16-2011

sweater: Ralph Lauren / thrifted
shoes: TOMs / thrifted
necklaces: American Eagle, local vendor

I swear, I never knew TOMs were so comfortable!! When I saw these on the shelf at the thrift store, I tried them on more for grins than anything else. But it was like they were molded for my feet and I was sold. The best part was, they were only $7! (and being sparkly didn’t hurt either) Now I’ve gone TOMs crazy and want to buy 3 more pairs.

You’ll probably be seeing versions of this all season. I’ll switch the low shoes up for my riding boots once it gets cooler. But I love sweaters and skinny jeans so much, it’s one of the reasons I look forward to Fall.

My friends are the best

date 09-14-2011
cardigan: Target
belt: Thrifted
dress: Forever 21
wedges: DSW
earrings: Alchemists

No post yesterday because I was having an AWESOME time hanging out with the boy and friends yesterday. Lauren cooked us a homemade meal that was delicious and we hung out on her porch drinking beer and listening to the neighbors’ Lady Gaga marathon.

This is what I wore to work and was comfy enough that I didn’t change before heading over for dinner. Simple, no fuss.

(Also, the pictures are not the same because I’m installing CS5 and my Photoshop isn’t working just yet.)
