Yay for Fridays!

This is my "hung over and late to work" OOTD. It's not anything fancy, but it's cozy and comfortable, perfect for a Friday. When I'm feeling like this it is just too much effort to put a pair of pants or tights on. It's legging time.

What I'm wearing:
*Aqua Cashmere Tunic with Zippers
*American Apparel Winter Leggings in Black
*Target Katherine Engineer Boots in Brown
*Forever 21 Necklace

I freaking love these boots! They are super sturdy, and I wear them on slushy days like today. Mine are a bit dirty right now though because I've worn them out and about a lot lately. But they're great because I'm not afraid to ruin them (pretty cheap to replace, even though I doubt I will have to) and they look better than rainboots or snowboots.

So... I've been pretty trigger happy with my purchases lately. Surprisingly it hasn't been at my usual haunts (anthro, J.Crew) but instead I've been loving LOFT, target, and other brands lately. Here are a few things that caught my eye!

BB Dakota "Bostwick" Jacket
(other colorway here)
I think this sweater is kind of ugly, but ugly enough to be cute. I think it looks cozy and would look great with a very simple outfit underneath.

Y'all know that I love faux fur! This jacket was on sale and I think it would be such a great topper for going out. Especially after seeing Linda's faux fur coat, I decided I needed one too in my life.

LOFT Brush Dot V Neck Shell in Light Peach
Loved the print of this, thought it would work really well layered under the cardigans and blazers I already own.

LOFT Nautical Striped Tee in Bright Gold
Grey and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations. This blouse is slouchy and cute and I think it'll work well for both work and play. You can wear it with jeans, or tucked into a skirt.

Target "Kachiri" Boots in Taupe
I have been wearing my grey Steve Madden boots (see them here) like crazy lately, and decided I needed to buy a backup pair in a similar style. I've also seen Kim wear these a ton, and think they that have the same vibe as my beloved boots.

Target "Kasia" Boots in Cognac
I pretty much added these to my shopping cart because I wanted 20% off and free shipping for my Target order. I love cognac boots, and thought that these looked nice. I hope they are cute in person.

Retail therapy definitely makes me feel a bit better. The next time someone suggests karaoke on a Thursday night I WILL say no. (And also not sing "Party in the USA".) Life fail.


  1. Those Target Karchiri boots look exactly like the Madewell Archive Leather Boots I bought, and are probably 1/4 of the price. Oh man. Now I know to do my research before I spend so much $ on boots. Looking good!

  2. Love your style!


  3. I just picked up a pair of target boots (kaiala) and love them! The quality is great for the price I find. Your "hung over and late to work" outfit is adorable, one would never know :)

  4. I wish my hungover look was as awesome as yours! I look like death warmed over when I've had a little too much the night before. It's really not pretty.

    I've been lusting after the Brush Dot V-Neck Shell from LOFT for weeks. WANT IT.

  5. I love your casual outfit! Those boots are a great Frye dupe- they look like real leather. Are they comfortable?

  6. Love those boots... cannot wait for Target to arrive in Canada!

    Your hung over and late OOTD is cute!

  7. Great boot picks. And your outfit IS comfortable. What can be more comfortable than a sweater dress and leggings (sweats don't count).

    Just Better Together is having a giveaway!

  8. What a cute and cozy look for work! Love those boots, my mom has them and raves about what a great deal they were =P

  9. You got lots of great goodies! The Faux Fur coat looks fabulous!

  10. Great picks! Loving the faux fur coat!
