  4. Love this top! You're really good at layering, I wouldn't have thought to put it over top a denim shirt!

    Hmmm, my Friday plans include meetings and then relaxing after work!

  14. Fantastic outfit :)

    I've been keeping my eye out for a skirt as amazing as that for a while.

  15. Wahoo Friday! Though Friday is always THE longest day at work for me! I LOVED this outfit when I saw the peak on FB! Love the colors, layering, ankle socks and booties! (I finally ordered booties from DSW and am awaiting their arrival! I was looking for "neutral" but ended up with "metallic" Ooops.) Also, since I always barrage you with questions... did you dye your hair redder at a salon or at home? I am highly considering it!)

  20. That sounds like my kind of Friday!
    Haha, I'm just meeting up with some of my friends - first time since I've been gone on my trip, so lots of girl chatter is guaranteed.
    Haha, love the beige tights and perfect booties.

  26. Loving the skirt, especially the slight aysmmetry to it. Andy and I took the day off to go see Les Mis (just blogged about it - so sad, so good) so I got an early weekend start. Also - I actually think your longer hair looks awesome, especially with the two tone colours. It is definitely well different as someone relatively new to your blog.

    As I do no have a job... Im working on that couch dent 24/7! :D

  42. I hate that we don't have an H&M anywhere NEAR HERE! That skirt is awesome.

    My couch dent got worked on last night. But I actually have to put cute clothes on for this evening. Blah.

  43. I didn't realize how different you look with shorter hair! Wow. I love how the v neck on this dress showcases the collar on your shirt beautifully. And I have such fancy pants too! My favorites. Haha

  51. Really like that skirt. I can never hang out at H&M long enough to go through all the clothes and also wait in line for the dressing room and checkout. Seems like I'm missing out on some good finds

    ReplyDelete
  52. Haha sounds like a good weekend to me! Spent mine hanging out with family, and got some reading done too.

    Love those shoes by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog! A shopping ban is going to be difficult but I can do it, right? lol...Love your look here. I like how you layered the H&M shirt over the chambray. Unexpected but it works so well!

  54. I love the top! I didn't have any exciting plans for the weekend. I wore really comfy leggings and a long shirt on Saturday so it basically felt like a swan dive into sweats. Amazingly comfortable.
    Hope you had a great weekend.

  55. I love your booties!! I've been looking for some just like those.

  59. Oh man, your outfit is too adorable! I believe I have already fallen in love with your hat haha
    And the most I did on friday was bake treats in my friend's kitchen. Whoo! Livin' it up! :P
    Also I read your 'about' blurb on your sidebar and as soon as I read the part about having a unique name because of immigrant parents I thought, "That's me!" I'm forever telling people how to pronounce my name haha
    Hope you have a great week!
