My Wardrobe Today – Friday

alison gary 2
statement necklace
chambray shirt
alison gary 3

Chambray shirt – Target (similar)
Skirt Gap
ShoesMiss Sixty “Jaiden”
Necklace – Ann Taylor (similar)

This skirt is currently $39.99, and then Gap is having 30% off. And then I had a $10 savings certificate (I have a Banana Republic credit card). So the skirt ended up being around $18!  I look forward to wearing this skirt in the winter with opaque black tights.

Today is my husband's birthday; tonight we're going to one of his favorite restaurants for dinner and to see a local band play.  Tomorrow starts swim lessons for Emerson, and then tomorrow night we're having a party at our house for my husband's birthday.  We used to have parties all the time but with Emerson, it has been hard (and our priorities and money have been elsewhere!).  We decided to do this several months ago so I have been saving up.  Nothing fancy, some comfort food, some beer, and lots of great friends.  We haven't had a party since November '08! 

What are your weekend plans?

    I have been getting a KILLER amount of wear out of my Chambray Old Navy glad I didn’t splurge for the JCrew one, becuase the Old Navy one is amazing.  Love your entire look here! C

    Thanks! And me too, I almost bought a J. Crew one too, but finding my $19.99 baby is getting the job done just fine!

    Oh I totally overwear mine as well.  And now I want one a bit stiffer and darker (like a true denim shirt)!

    LOL, these booties are the best two purchases I ever made. When the first pair broke, I just HAD to get another pair!

    That skirt is KILLER!  I love how you paired it with a more casual top.

    You think this skirt is flattering? It’s way too short for
    your legs.

    Just wanted to let you know that I thought of you when I got dressed this morning – brown dockers, white tuxedo front tunic shirt over purple cami, white gold and enamel disk necklace (enamel is hot pink and orange. Denim blazer and pink, purple and orange striped cotton scarf. Black clogs (because I have crappy knees) 

    Heading to a kid birthday party, then the park

    Not really. It is deep and it’s not light, but the way it’s made with the wide strap, it doesn’t bother me when I weight it down. Yesterday I had my netbook, a notebook, travel mug, small bottle of water, and all my purse stuff (2 different pouches, wallet, camera, phone, etc.) and it was fine to carry. I also love the giant front pocket with magnet – in there goes my metro card, keys, phone, lipstick and they are easy to find.

    A casual Friday outfit with a little self expression of rebel thrown in!  I am really diggin’ that new bag you’re sporting!  The description says it’s a bit heavy and I know you like to carry you netbook, do you find it weighty?

  14. October 1, 2011 / 12:01 am

    I dont know if it is a new makeup routine, new hair style, the weight loss, or what, but you look super young again! (Not that you ever looked old.) I think you look amazing right now. I hope you guys have a great time this weekend.

    This outfit is hawt!  Love it, and I really, really need to steal those booties from you!

    Very cool outfit! What a great steal on the skirt. We are celebrating my husband’s birthday tonight! (Even though it was last week). Drinks and snacks with his brother and wife. Enjoy your weekend!

    Thanks so much! Fridays are very casual at my office & I knew I was going out after work & wanted to look sassy 🙂

     I think this is a great versatile outfit. The top creates a nice balance to the skirt, making it an easy transition from work to evening, in my opinion. Also, love the new blog layout/logo!

    A chambray shirt is on my wish list right now. I don’t think I could do the leather skirt but I have a ivory lace skirt that I’m thinking of pairing it with. Looking good! Love the necklace too.

    The skirt is darling, the shoes are fab and you look great.  Have a wonderful weekend!

  21. September 30, 2011 / 6:59 pm

    I did wear it to work, but I also knew I had no meetings and few people in the office.

    Is this a work outfit?  Seems a bit sexy for work with the length/bare legs and the shoes.  Would be a great date night look though.

  23. September 30, 2011 / 6:26 pm

    look whos sporting a sexy little skirt today! 😉

  24. September 30, 2011 / 5:49 pm

    Thank you! I think it fits me a bit more than the old one. The old one was gorgeous, but time for a change!
