Just like Candy

Pistil hood scarf, Tulle coat, Anthropologie dress, HUE tights, Chie Mihara mary janes

This would be the perfect dress if only it could cease that annoying bunching thing it does when I’m in motion. *clenches fists and shouts to the heavens* WHY?! Is it too much to ask that something be awesome in theory AND execution?

Is it?

I can’t get enough of Little Edie’s:

AWESOME Banana Republic coat (can’t see it too well here but JUST YOU WAIT, HENRY HIGGINS, JUST YOU WAIT), Anthro shirt and doctor bag.

Can’t wait to go back.

I saw this picture on Urban Weeds the other day and almost died. I need that coat like I need air in my lungs.  I have a serious crush on this girl. Can we be friends who are both named Jennifer so everyone has to call us by our first AND last names?!

If she had a blog I would SO follow.

27 & 28: Holy Frijoles*

Sweater: Target. Shirt: Nordstrom. Skirt: ? Tights: HUE. Sock: Sock Dreams. Boots: Frye. Kid: Madrox.

27 of 30.

What can I say? This was a Monday outfit: no belts, jewelry or scarves because I was too tired to care or try. But there is a kid! He comes courtesy of my womb. Hooray!Anyway, Mad is my sweet boy. He’s very attached to me. He loves to “caress” my hair, which is usually super sweet but occasionally reeeally irritating. I can’t hold him without his hands grasping for strands to pull. Sometimes when I’m about to reprimand him, he leans back, stares at me and says, “Heh.” And then I melt. Speaking of hair, I haven’t felt like doing it the past couple of days. Hence the hood scarf below.

Hood scarf: Imelda’s (Pistil). Dresses: Zara and Buffalo Exchange. Tights: HUE.  Boots: Frye.

Hey, what is that down there? Oh, just another step. Which leads to another one! Amazing.

I decided to wear my shirtdress over my Zara dress after seeing this picture in the latest Anthro catalog:

And then I added the polka dot tights for kicks and giggles.

And speaking of tights, can Hansel from Basel make these babies in larger sizes?! Please? Thank you.

 

*I’m not sure why I used that title. Probable because that’s what I say every time I go outside. It’s that cold.

Dear hood scarf

Hood scarf: Pistil (via Imelda’s).  Coat: Tulle.  Sweater: Zara. Dress: Gap. Tights: HUE. Brogues: Franco Sarto. Doctor Bag: Etsy.

Dear hood scarf,

Remember when we first met? I saw you at Imelda’s and thought, “Oh snap! That’s hot sauce. I need that in my life.” Then I took you off of the shelf and saw that you cost one hundred dollars and thought, “Oh snap! NOPE.” and I walked away in anger. But. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I would tell everyone about you: “Dude, there’s this hood scarf at Imelda’s that I am in love with, it’s soooo soft and pretty.” and then finally my husband said, “BUY THE DAMN THING SO YOU WILL STOP TALKING ABOUT IT.” And so I saved and saved and finally you were mine. The end.

-Jen

P.S. I thought black and white was appropriate for the third shot since I look like I’m about to go kneel in front of a crucifix. *softly sings Ave Marie*

P.P.S. I love this bag but I don’t love HOLDING it. It looks good on porches and fences though, don’t it?
