Organization

gold2
gold6
gold7
Skirt? Allen Schwartz, Winners Top? Gap (here) Tights? Hue (these are so comfy)
Necklaces? Antique market (got them both for $8) Boots? Charles David, thrifted

I wish I could tell you that I am looking towards the right in every picture because there was something awesome to see out of the frame. Maybe there was a cat parade or a Bath and Body Works truck that crashed into a pole (no one sustained injuries) and spilled lip-gloss all over the road... Sadly, there was just an empty alley. I think I turned to the side every time because I was inwardly rather proud of the hair style which I worked out of my unwashed-for-days hair. I was probably inspired by something I saw on Pinterest and thought 'I can do that'. Usually my problem with Pinterest is that, I see things and think 'I can do that', and then I don't do...that. Because I am lazy and because an awesome mirrored back splash is apparently not practical and hard to clean. So now, Pinterest has basically become an organizational tool for everything I don't accomplish. But at least my unaccomplishments are organized and that is more than I can say for my front hall closet.

I'd say your pride in this new hairstyle is totally justifiable - it looks great! Although a cat parade would be kind of awesome.

Hey There Carole! said...

I truly understand the Pinterest thing. I think I'm a do'er and really I should just let those that can do IT.

That's what Pinterest is to me as well. Dreams, to-dos, but nothing accomplished. Someone pinned a quote that Pinterest is like fantasy football and I fully agree.

BTW the hair is awesome and I adore that skirt!

CessOviedo said...

You looking to the side totally makes this pics Vogue material! Oh and the hair too! Love how you made that look so classy and chic with the skirt!

Amazing. You have accomplished something I will now be pinning...to not accomplish. It's a circle, you see.

Clare Christine said...

Your outfit is fabulous, I am especially loving the skirt! I would definitely wear that as a dress-up outfit, but the way you paired it with your chambray shirt looks perfect. I just happened upon your blog and I think it is great, I love your stylish outfits and I look forward to going through more of your fashions. So happy I found your site. Hope you're having a wonderful week!!
Toodles,

If I could figure out how to do my hair like that, I'd totally be all pomp and circumstance about it :)

hannahstiff said...

The messy bun and little braid is the look I rock almost everyday! Love that skirt, I've got pants like it. Maybe the skirt is cuter.

love this!!!!

susiemaeday said...

Love the hair do! I love dirty hair fixes--that and dry shampoo are a girl's best friends.

GFS said...

Awww yay! Someone else addicted to Pinterest! We are sisters. I can tell. Pinterest just confirmed it.

I've gotta find you on there...or do I follow you already? I don't know...I'm usually on a pinning frenzy and loyalty to "family" becomes secondary.

At any rate....this outfit what I would call WWJD?

"What Would Jenna (Lyons) Do" Because I'm obsessed with J. Crew and their creative stylist Jenna Lyons. I even have a PinBoard dedicated to her.

But now, I will change it. It is now officially called "What Would JENTINE Do?"

See, I am loyal after all!

P.S...I worship you. #thatisall

GFS said...

P.S...I almost overlooked this post because of the title, "Organization"

I thought you were getting all Hollywood meets Canada meets Martha Stewart on me.

Glad that I overcame my fear of being organized or I would have missed this epic outfit!

linaya said...

You summed up Pinterest perfectly, "Pinterest has basically become an organizational tool for everything I don't accomplish." Love your outfit!

Lindsey A. Turner said...

Great outfit! I love pairing denim shirts with fancier pieces like this! You look great!

I see these pictures and I say the exact same thing to you that I say to my cat Radio Flyer: "um, could you get a little cuter please? no. no you could not. there is no way that you could possibly be any cuter." the end.

Linda said...

those boots are amazing!

I love your hairstyle. And I would like to know how you possibly go several days without washing your hair, because I would very much like to do that too, but I can't skip a day without breaking out all over. Not washing my hair every day would do wonders for my mornings.
