Sassy pants

Schoolboy blazer in morse code: J.Crew, spring 2012
Silk garland cami:  J.Crew, spring 2009
Wool cafe capris in maraschino cherry:  J.Crew, fall 2011
Nude colette pumps:  Tahari
Before I forget:  Run, don't walk to J.Crew.  Sales items are now an additional 30% off.  I spent a shameless amount and now am done shopping for a little while.  (Yeah yeah, I know that won't last.  I can lie to myself, right?)  I found an adorable turquoise and white gingham top (the "boy shirt" version) for $24.99 + an additional 30%, and this tweed skirt is marked to $49.99 in-store with an additonal 30% off.  So there are definitely some great deals to be had!

Ok, on to the OOTD:  Even though red pants are now rather ubiquitous, you have to admit they still have a sass factor.  And that worked well for me today, as I was feeling a little low on my overall energy level so I needed all the sass I could get.  Ever have the feeling that you have too much on your plate?  That is how I am feeling this week.  Too much to do, too much to remember, not enough hours in the day.  And that's when I say, thank God for Starbucks.  Salted caramel mocha, you're the bright spot of my day.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cute as always! I also popped in and had them hold the jade wool cafe capris for me at $35 (er, I forgot my wallet, nice). Lots of nice deals. I placed an order this morning for a few things to see IRL, but wasn't too wowed. Time for some holiday gift buying anyway!

    1. Can't wait to see more of your reviews, they are always wonderful and helpful!

  2. Hehehe. I know exactly what you mean! With the new arrivals I've been plotting my next splurge. Does it ever end!? :P

    Love those red pants, that is a great shade of red!


    1. It's impossible to resist, isn't it? Oh J.Crew! Thanks!
