A hint of earring

What I Wore to Work Today: February 15, 2013
Shirt: Goodwill, $1 Thursday refashioned
Jeans: Goodwill, shortened
Sneakers: TJ Maxx, new
Earrings: Claire’s

I have a handful of earrings and necklaces that I don’t remember buying although I’m pretty sure I got them when I worked at Claire’s for a few months in 2004-2005 (it was a dark time in my life). Also, one necklace that was my grandmother’s.

I’ve been thinking that I’d like to make or buy some new jewelry. And then it sounds like a lot of work and I don’t think about it again for weeks at a time.

Good story. I liked the part where I thought about making a necklace.

Yes, I like Target

What I Wore to Work Today: February 6, 2013
Almost Everything: Target
Earrings: Claire’s, 2005

Most of my wardrobe is from Target or Goodwill, with a few Ross items sprinkled in. Some of it lasts for years, like this green skirt that I bought in maybe 2007, and other items are worn out in 18 months. I am ok with that.

What I Wore to Work Today: February 4, 2013
Jacket: Goodwill, 50% off Saturday
Skirt: Goodwill, shortened
Shoes: Target

I was at Goodwill’s 50% off day and this jacket caught my eye before I saw its lower half. I bought it anyway. 8 months trailing the trend and sorta pregnant-looking, that’s my motto. (Note: not pregnant.)

Time travel

What I Wore to Work Today: January 30, 2013
Shirt: From a friend’s wardrobe clear-out
Skirt: Goodwill, $1 Thursday refashioned

I went to Target last weekend and saw a pink tweedy skirt much like this one. “Ha, I have one like that already in my closet!” Then I traveled back in time six weeks and wore it to work in January. Time travel is fun!

I now own this tshirt in four solid colors and two prints and I look for new options every time I’m at Target. This should surprise no one.

Another cardigan, this one with a decorative neckline!

Cardigan: Target, new
Tank top: Target
Skirt: Goodwill, shortened
Shoes: Target

I wore this cardigan on New Year’s Eve, which I spent in Park City, UT with a small group of friends. I remember nothing of this particular day, though. That’s kinda what happens when blogging happens in spurts every few months.

Cold snap

What I Wore to Work Today:
 January 14, 2013

Tshirt: Target
Skirt: Goodwill, shortened
Boots: Famous Footwear
Coat: JCrew fall 2000

I bought this coat when I started college in Vermont in September 2000 and I felt really sophisticated. Until then I’d been using giant puffy parkas during the Minnesota winters and I felt very grown up in this. It was $220 including the extra Thinsulate lining, I’m pretty sure, and came in petite sizing for better-fitting proportions. I haven’t gotten much use out of it since I graduated, what with the whole 70 degree winters thing in this part of Arizona.

Except we had a cold snap this year, with freezing temps a few days in a row that killed a variety of plants and crops and made people exclaim “I can see my breath!!!” in wonder.
