What I’m Wearing
* Black J Brand skinny jeans
* Forever 21 striped top …seen here which also was the last time I got my hair done …um it was JANUARY 31st!!! lol. Salon visit long overdue!
* Twelve by Twelve {F21} White studded cropped jacket
* Guess buckle heels
* Chanel Sunglasses
* Hearts and Hoops silver earrings …Farmers Market
* Zac Posen bag …gilt.com …So in love with this BAG! …mostly, the versatility in the strap length.

* …and I realized a bit too late in my frenzied morning that I totally forgot to wear my new silver and black tassel necklace I made yesterday. It would be PERFECT with this. dammit.

*Hair: Low messy side bun – tutorial

I think I tried on about one hundred outfits this morning …it was just one of those mornings where nothing looked or even felt right. I finally just said FFFFF IT! This is what I’m wearing …and it turned out okay …not great, but okay.

I’m in love with this little jacket but found it hard to pair with anything and wondered if I should have gotten it in a smaller size. Just fyi, the tag is still hanging on it in case I wanted to send it back. But the little stud detailing is so fabulous and it’s actually made quite well for a Forever 21 piece that I just had to keep it. Also, it was $39. Come on.

    The bag totally makes the outfit. Love that pop of tan against the black & white, and of course the bag is also just genius on its own merits. And yes, your impressive DIY necklace would be a good addition!

    And btw, I tried on a few pairs of J Brand skinnies last weekend, and couldn’t get them over my thighs. So sad. But then I discovered Joes Jeans… deelish!

    CUTE jacket, I love it that size, it’s more rocknroll that way. Also, I know exactly what you mean by those days that you can’t find a thing to wear!! Ridiculous for girls with closets as full as ours but… c’est la vie…

    Haha, when you wrote “come on” I totally imagined Gob Bluth’s voice saying it. My apologies if you don’t know what that means. Watch Arrested Development.

    And that Gilt bag is everything it should be and more. I just came into a little money myself, I think I’ll have to keep a closer eye on their sales from now on…

    omg…I have that top and I am totally stealing this outfit for tomorrow. I love love love it. I’m so into stripes lately. I also bought the racer back tank version of this shirt and I adore it. I should have gotten two of them. I think I have to go back…this is the danger of having a F21 one block from gym that I have to pass every time I go. sigh…
