a thrifty winter

I need another sweater like I need a hole in my head.  But sweaters seem to be one of the most easily thrifted items.  When I found this winter white, angora blend sweater from J Crew at the Salvation Army for $3.99 it begged me to come home with me.  I love it with jeans.  But I am looking forward to pairing it with my plethora of black and white shirts this winter.

end semester...end already!

My grad class has their "final" today.  They are actually just turning in a final Op Ed piece and then we are headed to the bar.  I am still being thrown by this overcast yet in the 60s weather in December.  I don't love today's outfit, but I feel comfy and me in it. 
The sweater is Jones of NY via Goodwill, and the skirt is Boden via Ebay.  Notice my pop of color with my knee high burgundy socks?  yeah, that was not intentional....just they were the top pair of knee high socks in the drawer, and I am so end of semester worn down that I didn't want to exert brain power thinking about which socks would look best.

December? Really?

I can just not get used to living in the South.  It is December and temps will be in the 60s today.  I am a cold and snow, sweater wearing sort of girl, so this weather throws me.
Today's dress (Gap), cardigan (Ann Taylor Loft), and belt are all thrifted from Goodwill.  This dress is sleeveless, and I think it will make a good year round dress.  In the Spring, I think I will pair it will a pink cardigan, as I love grey and pink together, but that color combo feels wrong in December.

so many options

Today is Everybody Everywear: Sequins and Sparkle.  I had so many options for this one, although many are not work appropriate.  Bur since we are in finals week, I figured a little sequins and jeans was ok for work.
