Casual day at work - I know it's hard to tell here, but these are dark denim jeans. I wanted to be comfortable today above all else - Fridays are busy for me at work anyway but coupled with the fact that we were closed yesterday makes things especially crazy. I didn't want to worry about feeling constricted/uncomfortable in whatever I was wearing on top of all of that.
This top fit the bill perfectly. You may have noticed that it is rare for me to buy something that is neither A) thrifted or B) over $10. It's true. But I had been searching for a black and white stripe top for what seemed like ages when I came across this one at Target. It was on sale for $12.99. I was so sold. I think I can handle paying a bit more for something every once in a while. You laugh, but I have come to notice that I often need to remind myself that it is ok to spend more on certain items at certain times.
This is when you ignore my problematic skin. :)
One of my favorite pairs of earrings. I am almost completely sure I bought these on one of my very first thrifting trips so, so many years ago. It's shocking I have yet to lose one or both - I am terrible at keeping track of earrings - but I guess that goes to show you how much I love them. They are the perfect size, the perfect dangle, the perfect shape - for me, anyway.
Comfortable, scuffed up shoes? Check. I swear that not a day goes by without me adding scuffs to all of my shoes. I don't even know how or when this happens! Ah well... it adds character, right?
