AJ Wears :: A black & white sweater

I love stripes. I love dots. So when I found a stripes + dots sweater, I was like, BRILLIANT! What's that? I'm wearing the exact same colors as yesterday? Shhhhh. I can't hear you.


I'm making that face because I didn't know what my night has in store for me. In hindsight, I wish I'd worn flats with this outfit because it would have been an "easier" look, but I wore this to dinner Saturday and all I could think was SATURDAYNIGHT!HEELS!YEAH! What happened was, we went and ate Mexican food and somehow ended up at this dance club and I was the dork in "da club" wearing too many layers. Cute outfits are always in context, people.

AJ Wears :: Stripes with Lace

This might be one of those outfits that looked better in my head, or at least better in person. I'm okay with that.

I wore this to book club. I'm in a book club. I'm not sure anyone even reads the books, we just get together and have a glass and eat fantastic food (Trio's this week...amazing!) but it's a fabulous little group of girls and I'm glad they took me in.

And I have no idea what my husband had said to me there to make me make that face, but you're welcome. Also, it shows off my spin pin bun which I was very proud of. I'm thinking I like the spin pins, although it's kind of lame I can only make buns with them.

Pants, H&M.
Striped Shirt, StyleMint.
Lace Shirt, Probably Forever.

AJ Wears :: A studded denim jacket

Today's ensemble is slightly inspired - I picked up this studded denim at H&M over the weekend and love how fun it is. It's soft and stretchy so it's ridiculously comfy, but the studs give it that funky edge I'm always looking for. Did I need another denim jacket? Shhhhhh. No. This one is totally different.

Look what came in while I was gone! After stalking eBay for a month or so, I finally snagged a vintage Coach Legacy bag (this one is Station). Extra Petite did a whole blog about the subject, and I had no idea that you could even FIND something like this on eBay. And after seeing Fran restore her vintage Coach, I knew I had to at least TRY it. Luckily, this bag was in pretty good condition and only needs a little work. I used some of the Coach moisturizer on it to clean it up and I might attempt repair (and flattening that front tab) in the future, but for now, it's the perfect size bag for around town.

Skirt, eLeigh's (local boutique, here's one from ASOS).
Jacket, H&M (really similar!!).
Loafers, JustFab.
