Shop, Drop, n Roll

Fauvism top
Shadowsleeve cardi
Joe's Petite Microflare
Steep buckle moto boots
Escalope necklace

This was my "why on earth am I going to the mall December 23rd?" ensemble. The truth is, it was mainly because I hadn't bought much for the hubs yet. Also, I wanted to hit up Gap and BR for their 40% off-sale-sale. BR was horridly picked over, but two Gaps scored me 4 pairs of pants for can't-beat-em prices. I find that overall, pants are one area that Anthro just doesn't serve me well. I've been feeling less ruffly-girly lately and sorely feeling the lack of pants in my closet. I think I'm going to take a deep breath and try to back off shopping for a while. I partook in most of the great promos that Anthro has sent our way, but I've also returned a whole lot of stuff that just didn't pan out in person. I think now is the time to shop my closet and wait out the true spring line.

All weekend, the weather predicted it was supposed to snow. Then the tricky little storm did an about-face and went somewhere else. The bottom line, I had to work yesterday, which made me a little bitter. I am definitely starting to have to keep the COLD in mind while dressing in the morning. At least I don't need to be out in it much, but bundling is still needed. On the plus side, I can get use out of the boot avalanche that now inhabits my closet.

People around these here parts go NUTS for college football. I don't get it. But, whatever. So the Bedlam game is this weekend, which is like the high holy day for those who follow the religion of Oklahoma football. That means a dress-up day at school, where I tend to feel left out. See, I'm not wearing OU or OSU gear. Not. Going. To. Happen! But, what with color blocking actually being a thing right now, I decided to get into the spirit in my own Anthrofied way.

I'm an elf, and I'm okay


First Flight T
Grassland Gallop Skirt

Mossimo/Target long sleeve T
Kohls tights
Old Navy scarf
White Mountain Ingle booties

So, yeah, the whole green plus these awesome ankle boots has a distinct elfish quality. I really don't care, because I totally dig this outfit.

And in important news, my Anthro Black Friday haul arrived today. Mostly success- one shirt was strangely not included in the shipment, one necklace was totally NOT the one I ordered but I like it anyways, and the Whipstiched Riding Boots are just not meant to be for me. But overall, I'm pretty damn happy with what I ended up with. I did get the 25% coupon since one item was canceled but I'm unsure if it will get used. My budget needs a bit of a break!
