Fifties Hipster

Sitting outside, drinking my chai and making sure that dogs don't run away. With my Will and Kate commemorative mug- obvi.

TJ Maxx tweed jacket // American Apparel lace t-shirt // Forever 21 skater skirt // Miss Selfridge oxfords // Maui Jim Lani sunnies

Yesterday at work when I walked in my boss told me I look like a 50s Hipster- if such a thing even exists? Hence the title of this post. Maybe it's the hobo scarf paired with my Babrie bow ponytail. I have a super annoying cold/sore throat, so snuggly layers and basically an IV of tea and chicken soup has been super necessary. And yes, I just had to look up the spelling of necessary. Does anyone else have words they literally cannot spell if your life depended on it? No, just me?


Dots on Dots

Old Navy sweater (similar) // Wit & Wisdom jeans // H&M earrings and barrette

This outfit is really such a live-in uniform for me... when in doubt, grab some polka dots and pink lipstick! Nothing makes me feel as feminine, even when the pieces are just a sweater and jeans. Toss in my H&M faves- the pink gem barrette and my favorite earrings and dress-down day at work is infinitely more fun. Seriously, these earrings from H&M are my go-to... I love them so much I bought an extra pair in case I ever lose the first ;)


The Perfect T

Today is my day off work, and sadly my plans for photo shoots, recipes and errand running have been stomped on by my new friend The Flu. Instead, my day has been filled with daytime TV and online shopping (although, I must say second season Grey's and SATC can fill my afternoons with old friends any day). In my online perusing I found my absolute favorite t shirt on sale- and I saw myself adding 5 to my shopping bag. White t's get discolored so easily that I want to have a back stock in my closet.

Am I crazy or does anyone else fall in love with your basics? It is just an Old Navy t, but something about the slightly-clingy fabric, longer length and perfect scoop neck has me so in love with it. I actually went into the store searching for it last week, but the sales girl said it was just a summer style. And at under $9 + 20% off, that's a good deal right?


Kate Spade Saturday

Okay, anyone who knows me gets that I am borderline-obsessed with Kate Spade. If I was made of dolla bills, they would all go into Deb's pocket. So when I heard that Kate Spade Saturday- a lower-priced line "meant to capture the spirit of Saturday every day of the week" is launching this February- I squealed a little. And told everyone at work about it all day. 

I mean, look at those SHOES- how can you not be excited? I'm loving the red/pink combo and the paint brush stroke dress. It's going to be available in the US exclusively through www.saturday.com- I for one have already signed up for the update emails, and you should too!


Mantra Monday

Falling Back

French Connection jacket // Emily Blu tank // Bobeau skirt // clutch, made by me

We fell back the clocks on Sunday so with an extra hour of sleep I decided to do my first outfit post! It was so nice out, a bare legs day would've been lovely but we're require to wear tights at work. This skirt was once of the first pieces I purchased at Nordstrom, I love the teeny stripes! A leather blazer and pop of color winterize one of my summer staples, and it was perfect for martinis at Gibsons with my Nordys gals!
