Playing catch up today, with days 9 and 10 outfits. I'm linking up for Heather's Pinned It and Did It link up again! I pinned this look awhile ago, which reminded me that I actually own a pink blazer and should wear it more often. It used to be such a favorite, but for some reason it got pushed to the back of the closet for the past 2 years. I included it in the challenge with the hope that it would start to wear it more often again. 

So here's a a little bit of a funny/embarassing story for your entertainment - today was a co-workers' birthday so we decided to throw her a fiesta. We had a potluck lunch with buffalo chicken dip (only because it's not a party without buffalo chicken dip!), tacos, and chicken tortilla soup. We decided it would be fun to make the birthday girl look ridiculous, so we got her an enormous sombrero that we had her wear all afternoon. If you're interested in checking out the ridiculousness, check me out on instagram for the photo! Right before lunch I headed out to my car to get that enormous sombrero and as I'm hustling back to the building because it was freezing and I refused to wear socks today, my heel got caught in the crack of the sidewalk. Thankfully I didn't trip or fall - it actually didn't even slow me down - but one shoe went flying off my foot and I had to turn around and go back for it. I was hoping nobody saw me when I heard a laugh from across the street and somebody yell "I didn't see anything!". I turned around and it was our provost/senior vice president of academic affairs. Yes, our provost saw me lose a shoe while speed walking, ridiculous sombrero in hand....

Is it Friday yet?! :)

And lastly, here's a few more ways I've worn that fur vest, which is probably the best $6 I have ever spent...




  1. I think fur vests are just the best,you can get so many outfit options from them! Your story is so funny,could have been much worse if you fell! Have a lovely weekend:)

    1. I agree - it really is one of the best additions to my closet! And yes, it could've been much worse. I'm so thankful I didn't fall! haha

  2. Oh my gosh this Discount Fashion Warehouse place must be the best, you have so many great things from there! Love the polka dot blouse with your pink blazer.

    1. I really do love that place! So many great deals.

  3. That's so embarrassing when you get busted by someone when something happens to you! I really like both of these outfits. I have been hunting for a fur vest forever and just haven't found one that I like. Your pinspired outfit is awesome! The mix of the black and the light pink is perfect! Thanks for linking up with Pinned It and Did It!

    1. So embarrassing! I really like this vest b/c it's not too bulky - the perfect layer!

  4. That second outfit is lovely. Great re-creation the the pin. Your bags look phenomenal too. I am sorry about the shoe-flying incident.
