Gingham, Pleats, and Tassels. Oh my!

I can't stop wearing yellow. I think I need spring. When we were driving home today, it was sunny with these weird, mutant flurries. Seriously, weather, get your crap together. 

I know I told you yesterday that I love yellow and black together, but I might love yellow and blue together more. Conveniently, blue and yellow are the school colors for the place at which I teach. I'm school spirited without even trying. 

Meet my second day curls. Elizabeth, my fun colleague, knows what I'm sayin'! She was rocking even better second day hair. I chose sleep over shampoo. Sleep usually wins. 

These shoes are really comfortable and set me back a whopping $18 at DSW. I'm awesome. 

This blazer is old. YEARS old. I decided it fit well and deserved to be unearthed. Welcome to the world again, lovely, brown blazer. (I like how the gingham pops out at the cuffs.)

My legs are reflective. Wearing tights or pantyhose would have been a great idea, but here is what I thought:
1. I am too tired and lazy to fight with tights again today.
2. I already have to make sure the shirt stays tucked in. What happens when I need to pee, which is always? Too much effort. As a result, my pasty legs greeted the public today. 

Comfortable shoes with fun little tassels. 

We look so haggard after work, but my happy little starfish is waving hello to you.

Gingham Shirt: Marshall's (I dig these colors.)
Skirt: Banana Republic (similar for $48)

Linking up with The Pleated PoppyShannaSarah, and Alisa.


  1. the pleats on that skirt are perfect. I agree that yellow is just meant for blue. You look adorable with your 2nd day hair. i rocked the 3rd day hair today. whoops!

  2. This pleated skirt is so pretty! It looks fantastic with the blue gingham. Love it!

  3. I love your pleated skirt! I am going to have to add it to my spring shopping list. And I miss 2nd (and 3rd!) day hair so much. WIth this short cut, I wash it all the time!

  4. I'm a new visitor! Love that skirt and the whole look actually! I'll definitely keep popping in!


  5. LOVE yellow too ... with black,brown, blue ... or tan ...

    1. I've been taking pictures of the clothes in my closet. I think I have a yellow problem, haha. The pages that linked to the IT List had significantly more viewers than other posts, for sure. I gained maybe 20 followers in the two months I did the IT List, but I don't know if that was from the IT List or actually checking out other blogs and commenting on them. Either way, it was a good experience :) I hope you gain a bunch of followers from it. I'm already following you on BlogLovin', so you can add one to the list!

  6. You look adorable! New follower ;)
