New jewelry is in at JCrew. This bracelet in metallic blush, especially, caught my eye. More and more, I’m attracted to these pale, pretty colors.

WindowDresser’s note: Pardon Lola’s lack of pants. She just doesn’t look too hot in my pants seeing as how she’s practically a size -2 and I’m a 12/14. Everything else I can fudge on with dressmaker’s pins to get her to look right in my stuff, but the pants are a no-go. So I’m just going to show you the top and then a separate photo of the bottoms.

Top: J.Crew flutter in seafoam
Necklace: J.Crew Malibu
Jeans: J.Crew matchstick in dark rinse

Whew. That’s a lotta J.Crew, but oh well. I am LOVING my matchsticks. Simon said the other day, “I don’t know how on earth it’s possible, but you look super skinny in those skinny jeans.” Ha! This is only because we have made fun of the tapered leg pants for so long. I was really afraid of looking like an exclamation point with big hair.

Come fall, I’ll want to wear this outfit with a long cardigan and a big belt. Maybe some boots if I could ever find any that I like.

I should’ve ironed this dress. It would look a lot better. :-0

dress: Gap summer 2009 (MEGA sale!)
shoes: J.Crew via eBay
Banana Republic necklace (Christmas present from Simon – 2004)

I love this dress and I can’t wait to transition it into fall. What would you do to make this more appropriate for fall? Cute tights? A great sweater?

Fuchsia jersey maxi dress: Target (summer 2009)
Shortsleeve navy v-neck cardigan: J. Crew (spring 2009)
J.crew espadrilles (summer 2008)
Banana republic multi-strand necklace (2004)

This is another dress that needs a tank top underneath it. Too cleavage-y otherwise.

Diane von Furstenberg polka dot wrap dress (winter 2006)
J.Crew flats from eBay

I love this dress. Simon bought it for me for Valentine’s Day a few years ago, and it’s just so sassy. It definitely is lowcut, so I always end up wearing a camisole underneath it. It’s a stretchy jersey and the little cap sleeves balance out the hips.

Sometimes I feel goofy getting dressed up to go run errands, but it makes me feel better to be put together. When I’m in my workout gear at the grocery store, I just feel shlumpy. So part of me taking care of myself as I’m mommyin’ it is taking the time to just put in a little effort to look good. Know what I mean?
