Nightmares and hand-me-downs

Every once in a while, I'll have a few days where I just have the craziest nightmares. Zombies, loved ones in danger, apocalypses, dying, serial killers, etc. You name it, I've probably had a nightmare about it. And Sunday night/last night/this morning have been doozies. Usually I just wake up, see that Matt's still there next to me, and feel better. But he left for South Carolina for work this week and won't be back till Thursday. Here's hoping Spazzy will help keep the bad dreams at bay. (She likes to sleep in the bed with me when Matt's not around. It's cute.)

Anyway, no one wants to hear about my awful nightmares. So changing the subject. To clothes yay!

shirt: secondhand from Joanna
vest: thrifted
slacks: New York & Company
shoes: Target
necklace: gifted from Matt
bracelet: Forever 21

This is the second of three shirts that Joanna of Fabulously Average sent me when she cleaned out her closet. (See the first one here.) The third, sadly, is too tight across my shoulders. I'm actually super disappointed about this, because it's an adorable zebra print short-sleeve blazer thing, and I am so in love with it. I've considered wearing it and just taking the risk of straight-up Hulking it and ripping open the back seam...but I decided not to risk ruining such a great piece. So instead, I'm sending it along to another blogger just as soon as I finish cleaning out my closet. (Loren and Ally, I have piles for both of you! Don't worry, I haven't forgotten!)

Anyway, I'm legit in love with this shirt as well. The tall sleeves kind of worried me at first, but I decided to just go for it and I'm glad I did. And between those, the vest and the semi-top-knot, I feel kind of like the quintessential style blogger in this outfit. It's kind of funny, but when I really love what I'm wearing, and I know it looks good on me, I stand a little taller. Walk with a little more strut in my step. It's a good feeling.

Oh, and don't forget to enter my giveaway courtesy the lovely Raych of Marriage by Design! This necklace is absolutely gorg, so go here to enter.


  1. yay, happy this one worked out! Sucks that the zebra print blazer doesn't fit, that's the one that made me think of you initially.

  2. LOVE your outfit!!
    So sorry about the nightmares... that is the WORST! I can't wait for your man to get home to you, haha!

  3. great look! I love the tall shoulders, and it's so true, when you feel like you look great, you present yourself differently. :)

  4. Ugh, I hate it when you have a really vivid nightmare, it always sends me spiraling into more nightmares every night. I like the stripes on this shirt, it's a lot of fun. I have a pile of clothes I need to send off to you as well (I totally spaced this weekend)
