A Little Leather & Leopard (+ up to 55% off at LOFT)

by - Thursday, March 26, 2015
Sale alert: Take 40% off (almost everything) at LOFT (no code needed) + extra 25% off $100+ with code INSIDER357. Total savings would be for either 40% off or 55% off.

Picks (55% off listed first, 40% off listed second in parenthesis):
- Poplin Crop Illusion Dress - $40.28 (or $53.70) - Love the yellow color. Wanted to compare against the AT printed tie-front dress that I'm also eyeing ($89 w/code DRESSFORIT).
- Floral Lace Dress - $53.10 (or $70.80) - I own the version from a few years ago, so am happy to see an old favorite brought back for the second (I think?) year in a row.
- Floral Lace Pencil Skirt - $35.78 (or $47.70) - The skirt version of the dress above. I'm intrigued and wondering if the length is longer on the skirt (fingers crossed).
- Relaxed Skinny Jeans in White - $31.28 (or $41.70) - Would love for this to work out when I need a break from my skintight pair.

Towards the end of my trip abroad, I started to tire of wearing the same ol' outfits day after day. Once I came home, I couldn't wait to wear everything else in my closet, albeit still casually. It took me two weeks, but I finally felt the itch to wear "work" clothes again. Today's outfit isn't new and exciting (muted color palette, favorite trousers), but it felt new to me.

Borrowed From the Boys

by - Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Well, technically just one boy -- my husband. I raided his closet for a jacket that would fit over my bulky fur vest (all the coats I own are all too form-fitting in the torso.) I can't recall the last time he wore this jacket... perhaps more than a year ago? It used to be his go-to until another favorite came along, so it's been hidden in the back of his closet ever since. He didn't even notice I had borrowed it for the day. Win-win all around, I'd say.

Weekend Rain

by - Sunday, March 15, 2015
I wasn't kidding when I mentioned living in sweats until life felt normal again. The next step in this transition process is naturally t-shirts and jeans, which ended up being my uniform this rainy weekend. At the rate I'm going, I'll be back to my normal self by next week -- part-time heels included!

Grays

by - Tuesday, March 10, 2015
I'm back! Fortunately not jet-lagged, but unfortunately very travel-weary (spent too much time at airports the past week). Apparently we missed out on heavy snowfalls while away and came back home to early signs of spring -- temps in the 50-60s?! Hmm... an annual Feb. vacation may not be a bad idea.

Today's outfit photos were taken prior to my trip. They're also the last in my queue, so bear with me as I get settled into normal life routine again -- wearing anything other than sweats is currently not high on my priority list ;)
