I Put On For My City!

Hey everyone! This week has been crazy busy and so unfortunately I have not had much time for blogging. However, I picked up my new copy of Lucky Magazine today only to glance through and see a special city guide on MY CITY! Ok well, maybe not myyy city per say, but it is! I was super excited when I saw this and the article features one of my favorite parts of Columbus, the Short North, and lots of small locally owned boutiques. I just thought this was too cool not to mention.
If you get Lucky's February issue, be sure to check this out. It is a full two-page spread, but I only scanned the first page. Or you could just come to Columbus and experience it all for yourself. I'm always down for a shopping trip. ;)

I'll Be Your Teacher, I'll Show You The Ropes

I would just like to start out by saying that I am very thankful today is Friday. I had a great weak with my students (for the most part), but my body is still trying to get back into work-schedule mode. Which is exactly why I am sitting home alone on a Friday night about to go to bed!
Anyway, I was completely in love with the outfit I wore yesterday. Although you cannot see it very well, I was wearing a collared shirt. I think knowing that will make these pictures look better. I was going for a sort of preppy/vintage-y look.

Dress: Avenue, $9.99
Shirt: Kohl's, $24.99
Leggings: Target, $6
Shoes: Avenue, $8-12ish (I think) with a coupon last spring
Belt: NY&Co, $1.99 before coupon
Earrings: gifted by my brother's girlfriend

One of the guys at work told me that I looked like a sexy teacher/librarian. That wasn't really what I was going for, but hey- if the shoe fits! ;) lol
Man! I really wish you could see the collared shirt better. Oh well. You CAN, however, see my mess of a bedroom. You like? Ha!

Happy Friday all!

It's Black & White

This outfit is really nothing super special but I am in love with this sweater! My grandma got it for me for Christmas! She definitely knows my style. I especially like the ribbon belt around the waist. So pretty. :) This was a good Monday outfit...effortless and still cute.
Sweater: gifted by my Nan...she got it at Marshall's
Tank: Old Navy, $5ish
Skirt: Old Navy, $14.50
Leggings: Target, $6
Earrings: gifted by my brother's girlfriend
Boots: Avenue, $49.50

I'm not feeling very creative or like I have anything cool to say, so I hope you are all having a wonderful week. This week has been crazy for me, as you could probably tell by the fact that I'm posting Monday's outfit today. But do not fear! I will post today's outfit tomorrow.

Rock and Roll, Baby.

This past weekend I got the chance to go to one of my favorite bars in the city where I went to college. Needless to say, I was super excited to go and dance my heart out to indie-kid hipster music. It also gave me a reason to wear my super-fun twirly Lauren Conrad skirt. Which, according to my brother and his friend, makes me look like I'm about to go perform in a ballet. But I like it....and I can twirl in it. Even better.:) (These photos were taken at my parents house...please excuse the mess of puppy toys in the background!)
Lace Tank: NY&Co, $20ish before coupon last spring
Tank: F21, $3.80
Cardigan: Torrid, $24 after coupon
Skirt: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's, clearance $11
Leggings: Target, $6
Boots: Avenue, $29.99 on sale
Headband & Necklace: gifted by Erica from Plum Proper

Here is a closer photo of the pretty necklace...& this is a shot straight from the dance floor!
I hope everyone had a wonderful time ringing in the new year! I have a feeling 2011 is going to be a good year, no? ;)
