Wish I had my camera for the outfit is tres cute today! Hair was washed and conditioned, a bit of Pureology’s blow-dry amplifier and then some Got2B curling mousse added. Dried with a diffuser (got a cheapo Conair that folds up that was $12, I couldn’t hold out any longer and this was all I could afford) and then hit the crunchy mall-hair pieces with a curling iron. Finger combed it to relax the curl. Very big but messy/beachy/fun looking.
Nude cami from The Limited, my ivory lace shirt with the ivory satin ribbon belt that is from Banana Republic Outlet, my new fave jeans, black booties from Sudini, silver and crystal necklace from Ann Taylor Loft, silver cuff and hoops, put on my orange crinkle scarf for warmth but left it on with the outfit.
The new jeans are…. The Essential Jean from The Gap! I originally purchased a regular and they were too big everywhere, but a petite is a length that works with a flat to a mid-height heel (like my leather booties and my summer sandals). I got the darkest color – they are wide like a denim trouser, but with classic jeans pockets, fabric weight and stylings. There’s some lycra so they are comfy and seem to keep their shape and not a hint of gaping at the waistband! I plan on ironing a crease in them the next time I wear them and am considering a lighter pair to distress for the summer. So happy about these as that The Flirt bootcut jeans from Old Navy have stretched out to the point that I can take them right from the dryer and still be able to pull them up without having to unbutton them. The Essential Jeans is also dressier of a cut so I feel more comfortable sporting them at work.

The weather is nicer today, the phones are working so no mad dash to another office for our meeting, I have a lunch date on Thursday with a dear friend I haven’t seen in a while, and I am finally getting out from under the pile of paperwork on my desk! It’s a good day!
