borrowed too much from the boys

Who gets a cold in the middle of summer? THIS GIRL! Do I get a prize? A box of Kleenex, mayhaps? A bottle of Nyquil with a bendy straw in it? Because that's what I need right now.

Moving on...

shirt, j.crew
jacket, gap kids
jeans, j.crew outlet
sandals, aldo
men's belt, ae
bracelet, kate spade
ring, f21

This was thrown together at the last possible second. I have a bad habit of sleeping through my alarm, which I pay dearly for whenever I'm trying to get dressed because I can think is "jeans! sandals! shirt! jacket! DONE!" without thinking that maybe these jeans with those sandals make me look shorter than I already am, or that maybe a men's-style shirt paired with a boy's-style jacket might need a touch more femininity to balance it all out.

Lesson learned: Wake up on time and get dressed thoughtfully.


  1. I think your loose hair, nails and accessories add a nice feminine touch!!

    I can't get up on time for nothing either. I always say to myself that I should plan my outfits the night before, but that usually never happens. Maybe if you come up with 5 outfits before the week begins, then it will take less time to get ready. Maybe??

  2. If it makes you feel any better, I got sick in the summer too. Over the 4th of July weekend. I'm a STAR.

  3. I must you say you look much better than I do when I wake up late! I also love the jacket (I'm a fan of shopping in the kids' section every once in a while too.) Feel better!!

  4. I'm so sorry you are not feeling well. That really does suck! :)
    However, your nails are quickly pulled together outfit are smashing!! Hope you are 100% soon!!

  5. So sorry you're sick, especially in the summer...at least you look adorable!

  6. I love menswear, so I'm a fan of this look. You still look put together, despite the sickness & lateness. :)

  7. Sorry about your cold Amy...these things happen (even in summer - yes it's happened to me)! You're good at doing boy-style while maintaining your cute :-)

  8. Summer sickness SUCKS. I somehow get a cold every single summer. What in the What?!

    I love your hair!
