30 for 30: take five!

{top, cardigan, skirt, tights - gap | boots, bag - urban outfitters | watch - vintage via my grandfather}

today was a "blue day" of sorts, so i dressed to match my mood, i guess. nothing specific, i just felt off my game. do you ever have days like those? 

i love tights. most of them are black, grey, or a patterned black or grey; but these are by far my favorite to pair with this skirt simply because of the monochromatic effect. 

what worked: this outfit was comfortable & really easy to wear. my office gets really warm, so i love having the option to shed the sweater.

what didn't work: i wish that i had a navy blazer to pair instead of the cardigan. and the skirt is a little big, so it twists when i walk. but it's a great work ensemble for me. dressy enough with a little spunk with my favorite boots. 


ps. i included the last photo because i was running back and forth from the camera, and this is me spinning around just in time for the photo. hahaha.


  1. oh.my.goodness. THAT WATCH! are you a fellow native chicagoan? i am always on the lookout for fun, vintage bears stuff and i LOOVE your watch!!! :D

  2. what a GREAT blue ensemble!!

  3. Awesome watch, lady. Very awesome. I think your cool points just sky rocketed through the roof. ;)

  4. saw this post from your tweet! you've got to convince andrea to incorporate more tights into her wardrobe. she looks so cute in them!

  5. I love your monochromatic look. It is my goal to pull off a monochromatic look that is not all black.

  6. This outfit is great! I love the whole look, but I'm actually most taken with the close-up photo of you and your pretty freckles. I love it! It's really well framed and the colors and textures are great.

  7. very pretty blue outfit, love the photography too.

    oh, and the bears watch is adorable!
