AJ Wears :: Sweats and a Tee

These pants made their way to the MVP list just days after they arrived last year. About once a week, I don't feel like wearing real pants, so they're a lifesaver. I think the trick to the jogger is to dress them up with either a jacket or heels. Even though they've only appeared on the blog once, they've been well loved in real life with jackets, heels, sweaters, blouses...I love them. My officemate BJ always gets very angry when I wear them, because boys don't really have the luxury of wearing sweatpants to the office.

The other thing I'd like to highlight, of course, is the shoes. They're from my Top 10 and have managed to be a weekly shoe in my wardrobe. It's done wonders for my feet to wear flats for a few days a week. Am I getting old? Bah.

Pants, Ann Taylor (similar).
Shoes, JustFab (exact! get them!).
Tee, H&M (similar from JCP).
Jacket, The Limited.
Bag, Coach (similar).
Necklace, BaubleBar.

AJ Wears :: A Striped Skirt

These are my confessions.

I wore this entire outfit on Easter Sunday, and then I wore it again the Monday after because there would be no overlap of seeing the same people.
Sometimes, I'll go to the fridge to refill my water and I'll grab a piece of cheese and eat it. Not slice it off the block, I'll just take a bite right out of the block like a heathen.
I haven't washed my hair in...well, actually, I can't remember. Clean hair is for suckers.
Most mornings I actually pull myself together in 15 minutes, because I like to stay in bed until the LAST. POSSIBLE. SECOND. 8:45 am? Challenge accepted!
This outfit is wrinkled because I sat at a desk all day. The tassel on my purse is wonky because I was in a hurry to meet my friends for happy hour and didn't really review my photos. I also took zero photos looking at the camera. Why? MYSTERY. Nah, I probably just wanted to show off that I finally have enough hair to make a halfway decent bun.

My final confession? I fell asleep during Monday night's basketball game. The only thing I remember is the Little Caesar's commercial that came on after. Bite bite! Sip sip! You know the one.
 

Skirt (today's top ten piece): Kate Spade Saturday (similar from The Real Real, cute stripe option from Romwe, another one from ChicNova).
Shirt, Forever 21 (exact - awesome deal!).
Sweater, The Limited (similar from BooHoo).
Flats, Mango (similar from XXI).
Bag, Gucci (similar for less).
Glasses, Prada (similar for less).

What's in my cart :: Shopbop F&F Sale

It feels like I was just writing about an awesome Shopbop sale, right? Well, lucky you, they're having their annual Friends & Family sale starting today! Now through April 10th, you can take 25% off every purchase with the code SPRING25. Here's what I've got my eye on:

I already own the black pair of Karen Walker Super Duper Strength sunglasses, and was just flipping through my photos the other day and realized how great they look on almost everyone. I've got the crazy tortoise in my cart, which would be a little over $200 after the discount. These sunglasses hold their value pretty well too, so you can expect to get at least half what you paid on an app like Poshmark or Bib+Tuck. Are they worth it? Absolutely. These things are heavy-duty and super fun to wear.

I also have a pair of Chucks in my cart right now. I have had my black pair of Converse since probably 7th grade (and they show it), so I'm thinking about getting a crisp white pair for summer. They have some super cute prints that would be fun too.

Of course, there's no minimum spend on this sale, so it's a great chance to pick up some new swimwear for your next vacation or a new watch for your work-week wardrobe (I'm loving every one of them by Kate Spade!).
