See Jane..and Andrea

DSC_4689
This was a fun, comfy outfit I wore to work yesterday and to dinner with Anna of See Jane, a fabulous Chicago style blogger. We've been trying for months to meet up and finally, the stars aligned and we were able to meet up and grab pizza at my roommate's restaurant, Big Stuff. I already knew she would be super cool because, you know, I stalk her blog, but we had so much in common! We both grew up showing horses and are a bit messy. Which is why you never see me take cute pictures of my apartment or pretty things around it. Those things just don't exist. You're more likely to see photos of shoes laying about and little tumbleweeds of my hair along the floor.

In other news, I've recently learned knee length, light, flowy skirts are out of the question with my walking commute to work. With the winds and not to mention sidewalk vents, I've experienced the embarrassment of flashing dozens of people to and from work on Monday. I also learned yesterday whilst wearing this shirt that walking over a sidewalk vent with a loose, billowy tee will also result in embarrassment because people will inevitably see my bra. It's been a rough couple days for me and my exposed undergarments.

I love that shirt. Sorry about all the indecent exposure this week...I'm sure most people don't mind it! haha. Oh and I love your bracelets...very pretty!

Man, I have hair tumbleweed in my apartment too, it's inevitable if you got long curly hair... (at least that's what I tell myself)
I love your shoes! I usually don't dig that style but those are really, really cool. And comfortable I bet.

Love the look! Anna is super cute, too! I must check out her blog! Sorry to hear about your unintended flashing. :) I have acquired a habit of holding my arms down at my sides when wearing a skirt for that very reason! Ha!

Anna Jane said...

I've been following Anna for a while now, and her in this dress... it's amazing. It was made for her! and I really love your shoes and share your 'hate' for sidewalk vents, although we don't have those a lot in Belgium :) x

Yeahhhh.... I'm on the messy side too. It irks me but it's true. I'm glad I have you as a messy soul sister.
And I am going to be predictable and say I'm kinda jealous because Jane seems like a cool shit to hang out with.

myedit said...

I mean Anna...Jane. I suck at life.

I totally love how the leopard print cross on your black batwing makes an unexpected pop! The denim shorts add a subtle hint to the look and the bangles add an edgy feel. My favorite part of the ensemble is the pink shoes!
My verdict? Superiorly cute!

I have those H&M boyfriend jorts also (in on shade darker) and I am officially OBSESSED with them. I got them a little too big unfortunately, so I can't tuck shirt into them but they are soo comfortable. And also weirdly leg slimming, which I'm always looking for. My usual my-legs-feel-fat-what-am-I-gonna-wear? go to shorts are super short and cut off, but this longer pair works some mysical H&M magic that I adore.

I swear I am always flashing people, it's terrible! Loving your outfit, I've been on the hunt for a tee like yours for SO long!
