things worth addressing

One of the best things I read this week was this post by Lynette.  A lot of days, I don't feel like posting pictures because I don't feel like I look perfect and so many of the style bloggers I follow look wonderful and perfectly put together in all of their outfit posts.  It was relieving to see someone address that sometimes the struggle is real. What was more relieving was seeing the comments on the post - so many of the bloggers that I follow and head tilt in wonder at, expressed similar feelings.  As sappy as it sounds, it's nice to see a community of women who aren't afraid to share these kinds of issues and I'm so thankful to Lynette for writing the post.

So here's to hopefully updating a little more frequently and not sweating the small things like breakouts, being bloated or wondering if everyone's judging how big my thighs are.

On another note,  I was featured by the lovely Ada of Elegance Personified for her Week's Best Looks post.  I love reading these at the beginning of the week and am so grateful to her for featuring me.  You can check out all of Ada's favorites from last week here.

but I love polka dots!

top | old navy (recent, last seen here), skirt & belt | target (spring '12), booties | payless (fall '10)

I love, love, love polka dots and am hoping to expand from that in March. This shirt is pretty sheer so I wore a black H&M knit top that I thrifted underneath to cover up.

Are there any patterns or colors that you might love too much?

give me spring!

sweater | old navy
skirt | h&m

So I actually wore this with leggings because brrrrr - it's still cold here, but of course I forgot to snap some pictures before I took my leggings off.  But here's a preview of what I'm most excited for in March: weather warm enough for me to go with bare legs all the time.

Spring, you can't come soon enough.

welcome to the red jungle

cardigan & blouse | old navy
skirt | thrifted
tights | target

I really liked this outfit while taking pictures of my latest thrift finds so I pulled a cardigan and tights on to winterize it.

Fun fact: anytime I wear anything animal print, I think of Welcome to The Jungle, but now anytime I wear red I start singing "loving him was red," in my head.  So this is a little Guns 'n Roses/Taylor Swift mashup via outfit today.
