yesterday morning, i hurried down the stairs to my husband and son waiting patiently in the car as i was running late yet again for church. when i sat down in the passenger seat, matt said 'whoa, pretty lady!' so that kinda made my day.
and truly i think it's the skirt. as someone who has roughly the same body shape as a 14 year old boy, a skirt that gives the illusion of feminine curves is pretty much a win in my book. and wearing a flowy blouse and a blazer that cuts in a bit at the waist always makes me feel like a fancy lady. and while this is an outfit that would definitely benefit from some heels, i've been suffering some foot pain that is affecting my running. that ain't cool. so i'm gonna be wearing flats more often now. but if i have to wear flats then they might as well be sparkly gold ones, right?

k. apparently i'm a bad blogger. i started off of broadway 2 years ago on january 22nd and i totally forgot to wish her a happy birthday. so i'm gonna make it up to her by posting a whole lot of photos of my outfits from the last year. it's pretty crazy how my style has changed over the past 12 months. and, no lie, i think i'm better for it :) anyway, here i am. if you want to check out my very first (and super embarrassing) post, do so at your own risk!
happy belated birthday, off of broadway!

last night, at what turned out to be the eleventh hour, i signed up to attend the texas style council in march! seems as though i waited so long to decide that i got the very last entry. i am super excited. i went last year and it truly was one of the funnest weekends EVER. i can't wait to see what this year has in store! so, i'll be there....now who else is going?????

truth be told, i've worn all this before....lots of times. i'm not posting an outfit that is particularly exciting or groundbreaking. and there are days that i think, 'i have nothing new, so why bother?' but that's just it. most of us can't get new stuff all the time. but it's what we do with what we have. and i liked this. i'd call it a remix but instead i'll just call it reality :)

i'd been looking for a cropped sweater for a while, but hadn't really found the right one. i love how they create interesting proportions and layering opportunities. well, the other day, i just decided to make my own! there are so many things i liked about this cable knit sweater, but the bottom of it was weird. it belled out a bit too much and i never was truly happy with the fit. so i did what any normal girl would do and attacked it with my scissors. and just to make it a touch more dramatic, i went for the sloped cut. i'll probs finish the edges at some point so the whole thing doesn't unravel on me. but i really kinda dig it like this :)

two more wardrobe favorites: plaid shirt and jordache jeans. it seems like any time i don't know what to wear i can always pull on these jeans and instantly feel better. they are my comfort zone, my sartorial happy place. super slouchy, worn, and slightly unflattering. these jeans are loved. and this shirt is vintage western perfection. the fabric has been softened and thinned by time and even some of the seams are coming apart. nope. don't care. she's a keeper. and when you are wearing clothes that are faded and falling apart and ill-fitting, you just have to pair it with some dainty little pumps, amiright????

i wore my fur collar two days in a row. shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone. of course, i don't know why that should be a big deal when i literally wear this pink blouse at least twice a week. can't help it. it's my favorite. and not only the blouse, but my green jacket. it is one of the most used items in my closet. it goes with everything! but this is the first time i've worn my fur with it. must say that i like this pairing. i face timed (???) with my dad yesterday and he was like 'what's that thing around your neck?' haha, silly dad.
but i kinda took inspiration for this outfit from one i pinned on pinterest. i really love that site. i find so many amazing things whilst on the internets and i like getting to save it in one spot. and even better is that i can find new things from other pinners. whoever came up with that idea is a flippin genius.
