Macaron PJ Pants

As practical as I would like to be sometimes, there's no getting around the adorable factor in these PJ pants. I found this macaron flannel fabric at Jo-Ann and I knew I couldn't resist, especially for $2.99 a yard. I quickly whipped these up last weekend while watching the Giants game, and now I have another adorable pair of PJ pants to wear this winter. Now I'm debating on going back and getting more of the same fabric for a matching top...decisions, decisions.

Going to the 'Ship

Blazer: Nordstrom
Scarf: Tie Rack in London
Dress: Charlotte Russe
Tights: Talbots
Shoes: Miz Mooz

My outfit for an interview last week. I pulled out a bunch of old favorites, including my good ol' Miz Mooz oxford heels and this classic dress from Charlotte Russe I bought in Las Vegas in high school. In fact, most of the items in this outfit are at least 3 years old, the most recent being the blazer I purchased at Nordstrom. Guess it goes to show you that classic pieces never go out of style :)

In other exciting news, the Giants are headed to the World Series for the third time in 5 years! Super exciting news, I seriously am so happy for our boys in black and orange, and can't believe it's happening! I know we have our work cut out for us though, because the Royals are a tough team and have not lost a postseason game yet. However, Giants are looking to break that streak and win the Fall Classic. It's an even year guys...it's our time :) Seriously cannot wait, we got this!

Beware the Frozen Heart

Kimono Jacket: Forever 21
T-Shirt: Gift
Shorts: Uniqlo
Shoes: Keds

I love Frozen as much as the next person, so when my friend Judy invited me to a neighborhood outdoor showing in the park of the film, I couldn't say no. It was a very sunny and warm day, so I thought I'd dress lightweight in this velvet kimono jacket and floral shorts, complete with a Frozen shirt my friend got me for my birthday. Shorts were probably not the wisest decision however, as outdoor movie in the park obviously meant a ton of mosquitoes. I wish I had the foresight to have predicted that...nevertheless, the lovely evening with Judy and Frozen was worth it.

365 Project Round Up

For today's post, I thought I would do a photographic round-up of my 365 project featuring a photo from each month. As I've mentioned before, I can't believe it's been an entire year since I started this venture. Part of me feels like I should attempt to continue it, though I know it will definitely not be every single day. I'm no photographer, but I do like the idea of documenting small snippets of my day-to-day through one photo each and every day.

Night on the Town

Jacket & Scarf: H&M
Top: Macy's
Skirt: Nordstrom
Tights: Target
Boots: Sperry

I don't go out at night too often unless it's for dinner, I'm too much of a homebody for that night life, but it was my friend's birthday a few weeks ago and we decided to take her out for dinner and bowling. I picked up this pleather skirt on the clearance rack at Nordstrom a few months ago, and I love the metallic copper tone! Really acts as a nice statement piece to a look. I can't wait to mix and match this skirt with different patterns and fabrics :)

365 Days Later

Approximately 365 days ago (give or take a few days), I began my 365 project, a venture into documenting my everyday life through a snapshot each day. Sadly and quite expected, I ended up dropping the ball on the project and dwindled down to a mere few times a month, but I was pretty determined in the beginning of the project. How quickly the year has gone by though, I can't believe Halloween and Christmas are shortly around the corner. Anyways, my first photo for my 365 project was of my work bin, so I snapped the same photo today to bring it all back together again.

Summer in the City

Headband & Skirt: H&M
Kimono Jacket: Forever 21
Blouse: Marshall's
Flats: Target
Bag: Steve Madden

Another summer-y look for this beautiful (and rather unbearably hot) weather we've been having. I apologize if I seem a bit distracted from writing posts, it's just that my mind is 100% pre-occupied with baseball postseason. Today is Game 3 of the NLDS, and the Giants have already won two out of five. Just need one more win to take the series, and guess what? We're playing on our home turf this afternoon. Come on Giants, win this at home :) I don't expect it to be easy, because the Nationals are still an excellent team and if we recall the events of 2012, it ain't over until the final out is made. Still, Giants can do this. We got Mad Bum on the mound and an excellent line up, plus the support of 40,000+ fans in the ballpark alone. I'll be watching/listening from work, cheering my boys in black and orange on. Go Giants!
