Sleepy Monday (plus, a little "over the weekend" too)

Oh Monday, you are a cruel mistress...
Blazer: Van Heusen via thrift (2.00)
Striped Shirt: H&M (24.00)
Jeans: BDG via Urban Outfitters (gift)
Shoes: Target (6.99 sale)
Necklace: H&M (9.00)
Ring: Forever 21 (3.00)
Did everyone manage to drag themselves to work on time this morning? I barely made it. I was definitely still in vacation mode, which made it seriously hard to wake-up and also informed my fashion choices: I just wanted something comfortable and easy. I love the relaxed, boxy fit of this boys blazer and coupled with the super stretchy skinny jeans, I almost felt like I was wearing pajamas! I've been wearing these flats a lot lately too, I love how the pointy toe makes up for the flat shape and adds some length to my legs. I've been searching for a pair of decent (I have high standards) heels forever, so until I find them, the pointy toe flats will have to do!

I'm grouping my "Over the Weekend" post in with this one, because I don't have much photographic evidence. My brother and his girlfriend came down from Maine for a visit, and on Sunday we went to Boston:
We ate bagels and window shopped.

This is so funny! You were in Fishkill, which is where I grew up (right beside IBM!), and now you are in Boston where I live now (right across the river from the Citgo sign).

Hope your Tuesday goes better than your Monday!

I love this outfit, everything about it is great. The gold touches, the proportions, the red heart ring. That blazer has an amazing fit, I need to look for something like that when thrifting now. S.

There's a definte "This Time Tomorrow" vibe going on with your outfit shots this time - grafitti doorway, stripes, blazer - I love it! It's super Parisian...chic and (dare I say it?) effortless at the same time.

I am a huge fan of pointy-toe flats. They add interest and make my leg look longer without the pain of a heel. Yours are especially cute!

Yesterday was the hardest day of my life... ok, not my life, but it was very hard to get back in the swing of things.

This outfit is so adorable and chic. I am not a ring person, but I really want yours!
