This morning when the alarm rang I though for sure that it had to be a joke. I could have slept for weeks more!

I didn't plan on wearing my scarf all day at all. When I was getting dressed I knew that there was some reason that I only wear this shirt underneath things but I couldn't remember what it was. Turns out it's because there are little rips in the front due to delicate material in an overly enthusiastic washing machine. I had to strategically drape my scarf to hide my burgeoning hobo-itude. Note to self: Do not get dressed in the dark. It leads to hobo chic and insideout underoos...

top: Joe Fresh
scarf: ?, bought it for $5 from the University bookstore
jeans: Smart Set
booties: Red or Dead via ebay, heels sparklated by me


This outfit was entirely based on the shoes. I got them on ebay for a song. I think that originally the wedge heels were white but the previous owners had painted them teal with nail polish. I helped the effort by putting sparkles all over. Sadly, it didn't make them more comfortable...



Today I am thankful for the inventor of pedways. I was able to walk nearly half way home using the skywalks that connect the downtown buildings. Sure it takes longer but it also is a lot warmer!

* yes my brain is so full of mush that the title was the only thing that I could come up with... no really.

Yup, pedways rock. In the summer I can run across the road for coffee and be back at my desk in 4 minutes; in the winter it takes 10 to go up, across, down, and back again.

That is a totally awesome outfit. It sucks that the shoes aren't comfy because they look so cool.

Ah, hobo holes ... my problem is no full-length mirror in my house. I get to work thinking I look fine and then realize I don't on my first bathroom trip.

How I miss pedways...

And well done on your glitter-ifying strategy. I shall now go and practice that fantastic scarf wrapping technique!

A full length mirror is the first thing that I bought because I was worried about that! Also the scarf thing is all down to tying a couple of the strings together to make it a big circle! Easy Peasy!

Awesome glitterifying!! I love the blue of your top, so pretty. And the scarf looks great with the top, even if it there for strategic hole covering!

Bella said...

Danielle, you should seriously consider doing a "vlog" to teach us lesser mortals how to do that scarf tying trick! I for one would totally benefit from it! I love that scarf and for five bucks? Score! The last picture of you, the one before the shoe one, is fantastic! You look wonderful! :)

Ahh, the power of a scarf - looks great! Also, how fantabulous are those shoes??!

Louise said...

Good Lord, those boots are amazing. Also love that tattoo! You're so pretty, just so you know.

I love all the blues in this outfit and those boots are amazing! Sparkly is always good. I'm sorry they're not comfortable though!

And um...what's a pedway? And a skywalk?

Gah! The sparkly wedges! I LOVE them!

Those are some wicked booties! I was laughing so much at the accidental hobo-esque vibe! That happens to me a lot, I've learned to just role with it. Lol. Some fabrics are just impossible to wear without ruining!
