Occasion: Super-casual workday, Friday April 23, 2010
Details: all remixed except tank and hoodieI inherited my love for polka dots from my mom, so when I was browsing maurices.com to spend the gift card that I won in Kelly's giveaway awhile ago and I came across this tank, I fell in love (it was on sale too). Unfortunately ordering online prohibits trying on, so I wasn't sure how the tank would fit, but I figured I could make it work somehow. Then last week my mom sent me a little care package that included this thrifted juicy couture hoodie, and this outfit was born!
hoodie - juicy couture, thrifted by mom
dotted tank - maurices, free with giftcard
jeans - gap
mary janes - dankso clogs
necklace - tiffany & co, hand me down from mom
Even though the ensemble isn't really anything special and is mostly about being comfortable without being shlumpy, I felt a special connection to my mom because of the polka dots, and to my Auntie Anne (my mom's twin) because she has the same exact hoodie in black!
Makeup:Since the outfit was so casual, I went for my go-to neutral eye look so I didn't feel too much like a 2nd grader.
eye shadow (lid) - MAC retrospeck
eye shadow (crease) - MAC saddle
eye liner - MAC eye shadow in embark
bobbi brown blush in ski slopes
burts bees lip gloss in zesty red
Speaking of Kelly, I'm totally flattered that my dress was included in Proficiscamur's "Friday Frocks" post today! Go check it out because she showcases some fabulous bloggers in drool-worthy dresses.
