My Skinny Jeans Love My Crested Tee and My Annette Blouse...

This was an outfit I wore on Friday a few weeks ago. I wore the first outfit subbing, and the second outfit I wore to go hang out a restaurant with a good friend of mine (just me and her...BLISS). :)


The skinny jeans are really old (you can tell because they have the outdated wear on the thighs), but I don't care...these jeans are so comfortable. And since I was walking home from work that day (yep, I am back to the whole walking to and from school...I just don't do it as often)...I wanted to stay pretty casual. Plus it was a Friday, and the school is all "jeans on Friday, everyone." The jeans were purchased at Kohl's back in 2006, and are Levi's. The tee is the tissue beaded crest tee (only the weathered stone is still available) from this fall from J. Crew. The tunic is the featherweight cashmere tunic from J. Crew last spring (2009) in the celery color. The shoes are a very fun, and very old, pair of Keds I bought probably in 2004?

By the way, at one point I had taken off the tunic, and was needed desperately to help someone, so I quipped, "Well, I do have on my Superman shirt, so I know I can help you for sure." I actually made someone smile because it is true, the darn crest looks very "Superman-esque." (Not so much under the tunic, but full-on, no top layer covering the beading it definitely does...

Rex is always trying to either pose with me when I take photos or grab me to grab him "some orange juice, please." That day he was all about the juice. :)


I did make a polyvore for the second outfit. This is the outfit I wore out with my friend.


And here it is, on me. I love this blouse, but I bought it really big (bought it when I was a few months post-partum), and now it fits me very blousey. I don't mind it being a bit big, but I definitely have to be careful of proportion with this top...so that is why I pulled it out with the skinny jeans.

The Annette blouse is in that beautiful honey glaze color that so many of you love. It is a really gorgeous hue. I wonder if any of the new items this winter will come in this shade???

You all have a nice night! Next up? Library Doll Dress (after all, I did substitute in a library last week)!!! ;)

Hi Dina,
Loved your posts today! Your upbeat attitude helped, as it was quite a stressful and frustrating afternoon (see my blog re: ANOTHER car accident.)

You know, this gets over used on these blogs - but great minds DO think alike - I told Patina I got the "Superman" tee shirt during the summer, and she and I were laughing about it online! haha But I do LOVE that shirt, and thanks for the reminder to wear it under a v-neck! Great idea.

Take care! PS Do you sub every day? It is 'possible' that I may get to ride up there for a day with hubby soon....

You really look lovely in bright colors! I'm also loving the your new scattered glass necklace with the blouse...yes, it's on my wishlist. :-)

Did you see that there is now more COLOR online at jcrew? yay! :)

Cloggsy said...

Gorgeous thing you! That celery color really suits you...

tastymoog said...

Perhaps you could pair the Annette blouse with your orchid pencil skirt? That could be nice!

Kat said...

I love the Annette blouse on you! I really wish I got one. Still holding out hope :) What size do you have on, if you don't mind me asking? The necklace looks great with it, too. I haven't had a chance to wear mine yet.

Keep up the colorful outfits! It's rainy and miserable in the District today (I'm sure you're aware) and your outfits brighten things up a little!

Hi, Guys...I am in a bit of a time crunch right now, but I wanted to respond before it got too late...

I am glad the bright colors and the superman shirt made so many of you smile. It has been NASTY these past couple of days (and isn't it snowing in the upper northeast? CRAZY)...

Gigiofca: Thank you! I meant to do a post about it, but time got away from me...sigh!!! :)

Suzy: I am so sorry to hear of your misfortune. BLEGH and Double BLEGH. :(

I do not sub everyday, thank goodness...so you betcha, let's get together!!!

Tastymoog: COLOR, YAY!!! And, as you know, I love the polyvore you created with this blouse. Gorg!!! Thank you so much...

Kat: This is a size ten, so it is two sizes too large, but oddly, I prefer it larger than smaller, like it was back in January. I guess it is one of those tops that just feel better a bit loose. :) Oh, and yes, RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY!
