career day & a lesson in hosiery


necklace- present from Hunter, top- from Leena, blazer- thrifted, pants, Banana Republic c/o Carina, heels- Marshalls 

I just realized how much red I've been wearing lately! 'Tis the season?
When I was younger I had like 5 red t-shirts (and all I wore was t-shirts) so I wore red all the time.
The color gradually phased out of my wardrobe but seems to be back again!

This blazer seemed like a steal on my last thrifting trip, I fell in love with the gold buttons
AND it's Ralph Lauren (oh heyyy Ralph).
It's been sitting in my closet for a few months because I've been stumped.
A couple weeks ago I attended a career fair as part of my job, 
and Hunter helped me figure out how to make this blazer look not too big and not too old.
I baited him into helping me by wearing the necklace he got me :)

I originally planned to say "In other news that may get me shunned from the blogging community, I am SO TIRED OF WEARING TIGHTS AND LEGGINGS"
but then yesterday I did a good amount of laundry, 
finally my tights feel crisp again and I don't have to constantly do the delicate dance of pinching them off my legs and pulling them up.
TMI? Sorry. Here's my life lesson of the week: wash your tights.

Hahaha your thing about tights is great. I always rewear mine and they ALWAYS get gross, but I insist on wearing them again anyway. (Yay for TMI!) And is it weird to say you look powerful here? Because you do. The jacket is awesome and looks like a total confidence booster.

Haha I just washed my tights the other night! My boyfriend came home to find that I had turned our bathroom into my drying rack, there were literally half a dozen to a dozen pairs of tights strewn about. Anyway, you look fierce in that red blazer and statement necklace, seriously I'm loving it.
