30 for 30: take seven!

{top & jeans - gap | sweater - levi's | scarf - H&M | boots - lucky brand | watch - nixon via my hubs}

today i wanted to wear something that was comfortable yet dressy enough for the office. crisp white button down, skinny jeans, and boyfriend cardigan. i added the scarf for a bit of color, and to dress it up enough for the office. i attempted the whole "belted scarf cardigan" combo, but the belt i chose was too wide/heavy, so i discarded it. 

what worked: i really enjoyed wearing this outfit. it was comfortable, and i really like wearing red.
what didn't work: i need to wash my jeans. they're a little "slouchy". wait, should i be telling you that? haha.

i'm really looking forward to this weekend. i'm headed to michigan overnight to see my sister, say farewell to a friend who is moving, and then i've got a surprise engagement party for a dear friend that i'm going to on saturday. it will be a good weekend. i'm sure of it. but i must make it through friday first.



  1. I like the scarf in this outfit, it adds a little spice to the look overall. Keep up the great outfits in the 30x30 challenge :]

  2. Oh! I live in Michigan! I hope the Mitten State treats you to an enjoyable visit. Your long scarf is lovely, and I like it paired with the crisp shirt and slim pants. Classic look!
