Lazy Jane

Tomorrow is Friday!
Sweater: J.Crew outlet (20.00?)
Oxford Dress: American Apparel outlet (40.00)
Tights: TjMaxx (4.99)
SHoes: Target (6.99)
Earrings: tag sale (1.00)
Jacket (worn below): J.Crew outlet (20.00?)

Today is possibly the first time I've worn earrings in, maybe two years? It's funny because earrings used to be my go-to accessory (and I have an amazing collection) but I never wear them anymore. Weird how our preferences can fluctuate like that, don't you think? Today though, I rediscovered what used to be my absolute favorite pair.

I absolutely LOVE the pairing of red and blue, I think blue just sets off red so much, makes it brighter. This is dress definitely one of my go-to pieces. It's so versatile. I didn't end up getting home from the Gallery until around midnight last night, so today I was extremely sleepy and wanted an easy outfit to throw on. The boater sweater was lying on my dresser, and considering how cold it was today (can you see my red nose?) I opted for some extra warmth.

Well, I'm happy to say that the installation of artwork in our show is almost done. Bea and I drove to the gallery after work today, and installed the artwork with some (major) help from the FiveSevenDelle folks. I hope some of you can make it on Saturday, the work looks amazing!
My photos didn't quite come out the way I had hoped today, a little disjointed. It was cold and windy, yeah..let's just blame it on the weather!

Loovveee your outfit, that jacket is great!

I also used to wear earrings loads, but now I just wear a simple pair of pearl earrings all the time. I rather wear long pendants or chunky bracelets now.

Earrings are still my go-to accessory. And your earrings are very eye-catching with the outfit! I love the pop of red against the more subdued colours. And the boat-neck sweater is great too. I love the stripes and the neckline.

Love the little pop of red in the earrings. I need to start wearing mine more often

Cute sweater!;))

Jen said...

i love that second picture of yours so much! great pairing of the striped sweater with your oxford dress. :)

MrJeffery said...

love this look. the earrings are cool.

chicfaced said...

fortunately for you, you don't really need earrings to jazz up an outfit since you're blessed with YOUR HAIR!

I love the boat neck w/the oxford...wouldn't have thought of pairing those two necklines together but there's something pretty parisian about it, I think

futurelint said...

I LOVE the juxtaposition of the two collars - so chic and something I never would have thought of! I'm the same way with earrings - I have a million pairs but I just wear plain tiny silver balls (I worked with special needs kids in college, so I stopped wearing dangly earrings then, and now it's been so long I feel like I look weird when I wear them!)

ANA said...

Super cute, as always! I just got asked to work until about 10 pm tonight, so it doesn't look like I'll make it to the reception. I'm pretty grumpy about it. I hope you share some photos!

Jessica said...

I used to be the same way with earrings! I never wear them anymore because my hair always covers up my ears. These are really pretty though, the red and blue look great together. That sweater is adorable too!

BARGAIN BEX said...

I'm loving the throwback to all things striped! You look darling!

I think it's official after seeing this latest post that we should swap links.

Yep. Let it be done.

just today i was wondering how long it would take for my earring holes to close up because its been SO long since i've worn any earrings. those look great on you though!

Catie said...

The earrings are beautiful! I definitely agree the red and blue look great together.

Lexie said...

i love your oxford dress! every time you wear it i am more and more inclined to buy it from american apparel! you have styled it so many different ways!

i used to be super obsessed with unique earrings when i had a pixie haircut! now that it's longer, i find myself gravitating towards studs.

your style never seizes to amaze me! i especially love the post below too, with the pink scarf. simple yet gorgeous.

Musing Around said...

I love red, blue, and white-- but I always shy away from it cause I don't want to look like I'm supposed to be in a patriotic parade! Ha. I think toning it down with grays or blacks also works.
Super cute!

Clare said...

You do look cold, but SUPER cute! I love this outfit!!
