This is what I’m wearing today. I had some bank account stuff and PO box stuff to sort out, and I find I get taken more seriously if I wear a blazer. 😀 Plus it’s comfy and coordinates well with the pink of this tank, and adds some patterned interest to the outfit. Win all around. Overall, too, this was not an expensive outfit. The blazer and the tank were both bought on super sale. The shoes were a giveaway win. The ring was bought for a few bucks through a sample sale. The clothes are quality pieces, so I’m extra happy to have grabbed them at way less than full price. The necklace was probably the most moolah, and that’s just because it’s gold. I’ll be wearing this out to date night tonight, too.
Let’s see, other news. We finally hired a professional lawn service, and this morning they tackled the monstrously overgrown bushes in front of our house. It looks so much better, and dare I say respectable. I told Ian to make sure he’s pulling into the right driveway, that’s how different it looks. And since we’re waiting to paint interior walls until we get the floors redone, for some color in the meantime I’ve ordered some wall decals. I’ve never used them before, so we’ll see how that goes and whether I like them.
Otherwise, I’ve just been working like a madwoman on shop stuff. My 2-year shop and blog anniversary is this weekend, and I have some ideas I want to unveil, so I’m trying to get ready for that.

I get it… a blazer screams professional so people treat you with more respect!
Exactly! Though I think I actually ended up intimidating the lady at the post office. Oops.
You’ve just reminded me that the lawn-mower guy never came when he said he would! Grrrrr!
That’s no good! Hope he showed up.
I love blazers and how that kick every outfit up a notch. Exciting about the lawn service, yard work is no fun!
Exactly! I feel like an outfit automatically looks more put together, just by throwing on a blazer.
And yes, yardwork is the pits.
SUPER cute wedges.
READY FOR YOUR ANNIVERSARY NEWS!!!!!!!! FUN!
Lawn service!?!?! Sign me up!!!
And I dunno if the lawn guys we use go all the way to Missouri…
I love that blazer, seriously. Those shoes are so cute too.
Thanks! It’s on sale right now for $9.99 if you really love it… 😉
I love the bustier top that you wore beneath that blazer. And the color is perfect too!
