I love these socks! Aren't the shoes great too? I don't know if I'm that keen on the rest of the outfit, but I was in a hurry this morning and didn't have time to change. That's one of the great things about experimenting with fashion. If you don't like something you put together, you just take it all off and start over again. It's fun!

My cat Amaretto jumped into the picture of my shoes, just as the flash went off. She really has a thing for shoes. The smellier they are, the more she loves them.

I love these shoes! Because they're so bright and shiny, I try to pair them with more reserved clothing.

This is one of my recently thrifted skirts. In fact, the entire outfit cost less than $25. I bought this skirt and 4 others on Monday and I don't remember which skirt cost what amount, but the range was $1.75 to $3.50 per skirt. The tee-shirt was $6 from target, the shoes were around $12-$15 on sale, and the accessories are all gifts or hand-me-downs. I've gotten a lot of clothes and jewelry from my mom that were hers in the 60's and 70's (and a little from the 80's), and I've gotten jewelry and other random items from my grandmother, aunts, great-aunts, second cousins, dad and other family. I like cheap. I like free even better.
T-shirt: Mossimo for Target
Skirt: American Eagle Outfitters (thrifted)
Seashell Necklace: gift
Other Necklace: it's actually a belt that came with a white skirt I rarely wear
Faux Pearl Earrings: ?? (I've had them since middle school)
Shoes: Nine West

When I'm taking pictures, I need to remember that while natural light is good, blinding sun is not. It tends to change the colors of my clothes and wash out details.
This was the best photo I got of this outfit, and unfortunately, the details of the cute necklace from my grandmother are not really visible.
Skirt: Old Navy
Necklace: made by my grandmother

I stopped at the library and picked up Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult for next month's book club. I stopped at a little cafe and had a portobello sandwich and an iced chai, and started reading. The book was so good that I had finished it by Sunday afternoon.
Shirt: Wet Seal
Flips: Old Navy
Earrings: ?? (I've had them since high school)

Jacket (pictured below): Express
Shoes: American Eagle
The matching tie around my neck is actually the belt that came with the dress. I tied it around my neck in a bow, like a skinny skinny little scarf.

This has been my favorite court suit this summer. This is the first time, though, that I've worn it with all green.

I wore this to work yesterday. In the evening, I went to a small dinner party. Or, I thought it was going to be a small dinner party. Turned out, there were over 20 people. There was even entertainment - a classical guitarist!
Ribbed Tank: Victoria's Secret
White Jeans: Delia's
Shoes: Etienne Aigner
Black Hoop Earrings: Aldo

I attended court this morning, for the first time since I've starting posting pictures here. Thus, the more conservative attire.
The sweater used to have a cute little black bow (teeny, teeny tiny) right in the front of it, but after a couple of wears (and a wash) the bow started to fray, so I cut it off.
Suit Jacket: Express
Sweater: Behnaz Sarafpour for Target
Silver Hoop Earrings: gift
Shoes: Ann Taylor LOFT (thrifted)
