Keep It Simple Stupid :)
30 for 30: Day TEN (11/19/10)
Black V-Neck Top: Forever 21, Thrifted
White Blazer: Chadwicks, Thrifted, $2.50
Dark Jeans: Xhilaration, Target
White/Black Polka Dot Socks: ?
Shoes: Joan and David Too Black Heeled Oxfords, Thrifted: $5.20

Herein ends a long day that just couldn't stop: Woke up late, bad hair day, annoyances at work, dribbled coffee on my white (of course) blazer, my right blinker won't work on my car (but only when my lights are on... mmm, ok), and having to pick my boyfriend up at work because his blood sugar was so low he almost passed out. And breathe.

30 for 30: Day TEN (11/19/10)

Flip that. Reverse it. Let's think about the bright sides: Got some extra sleep, Messy hair is sexy hair (ok, I'm pushin it on that one...), accomplished a ton at work today, my coffee was perfectly hot on a cold almost-winter's day, it was sunny today so I didn't need to turn my car's lights on (and therefore my blinker worked) and my boyfriend is safe and sound and feeling better and snuggled into bed. It is nice to think on the sunnier side of things. (See also: BFFs that tolerate random text messages from their directionless friends and moms who handle daughters that are having mildly teary fits.)

  6. Collette - Thank you! These socks always make me happy... I probably wear them at least once a week! :) Yay for new laptops!

    Elizabeth - Me too... Lately I have been into very simple looks so I'm running with it :)

    Al - WOO HOO! TGIF for sure! And you totally helped! You were the reason I turned around otherwise I probably would have kept driving down Utica thinking it was 13 and just getting further confused. :) I called my mom after that instead of you only because I was nearly in tears and figured I would spare you from that! <3

  7. Amanda - OK! Let's run with that! :) What is ice wine!? It sounds like something I would enjoy!

  8. ice wine is a fantastically sweet dessert wine - like a Riesling, or a Gewurztraminer (i KNOW i got that all sorts of wrong, but hooray for spell check) but not as dry as prosecco - where the grapes are actually frozen on the vine, then fermented into wine. if they have a 'bad' year and the grapes don't freeze, no ice wine! jackson-triggs is a winery out of bc canada that makes it ... i bet there are some places in the part of canada close to you (ontario?) that make it. are you close to a good wine seller, or reputable liquor place? i am totally willing to help you find some.

  10. I hate days when everything seems to be not going your way. You said you dribbled coffee on your blazer was that after the pics were taken? I love the white double breasted blazer and the polka dot white socks they're really cool!

  11. My day was made brighter by going running in the middle of the day and somehow ate up most of my day, though it also could have done the opposite. I just reminded myself that I will live with my body much longer than the mess around the house.

    So far, the hubby seems to have turned a blind eye to the lack of productivity around here. It may have to do with a new video game.

    Love the B&W!

  13. I love this look! Very chic. The polka dot socks are a wonderful and unexpected touch.

    Not sure if I gushed over how fabulous your hair and glasses are before... so I had to again. ;)

  15. KISS is a great way to go! I like the little touches, though, like the pattern of the dots showing under the cuffed jeans.
    I hope your weekend is looking up.
