It's true -- there are days I don't wear heels, I don't shellac my make-up on and I simply don't dress up. As of lately there have been many of these days. Of course you don't know about these rogue outfits because I rarely take photos on my off days. Why? Because I don't want to bore you with my t-shirts that I sometimes sleep in and wear the next day, and a random pair skinny jeans that I've worn for 4 weeks straight so they are stretched out and make me feel skinny. But today I am going to be honest -- today I am a bore. So here is an off duty outfit to lull you back in to your Monday afternoon nap time. Wait -- was that a yawn? Oh, you don't take a nap at your office? Liar.

Let's just get this out there: I'm terrible at making announcements. But I have exciting news, so I'll give it my best shot. Next month Bloom is opening online! What is Bloom you say? Well I opened Bloom, a little boutique in McKinney, Texas, last September right? And every once in a while I'll sport something from there (that's what the 'bloom' tag is, if you were ever lost on that). But unless you lived close by, you weren't able to buy the items I wore. Next month, select items from Bloom will be available online -- a small peak into the retail store. Right now Bloom's site is getting a facelift, you can check our progress out on Bloom's Facebook page or right here, of course. I will not leave you hanging.
Till our undetermined date in February, how about a few shots our first photoshoot to hold you over?
See you guys and this cute little model in February. (Just kidding, I'll see you tomorrow.)
Excuse the wind blown hair. My wind machine is acting up again.
Let's be honest, this combination was kind of a no-brainer. White and black with white and black? Done. By the end of the week I need a no brainer kind of outfit. I also need a weekend, ice cream and a really bad chick flick to watch. Who's with me?

Three things about silk pants: 1) constant wrinkles 2) the wind hates silk and 3) constantly worried about stains. I have banned myself from eating anything greasy today along with anything that involves ketchup or wine or blood. (Blood is such a pain to get out of silk.) It's that or eat with my pants off, which I typically wait until 5 pm to do that.
I found these pants at Anthro for $20 (down from $198. It's almost like they paid me to take them off their hands) and I bought them on a whim. The very next day I saw this image on Pinterest and was so glad I took a risk on my wide leg maxi silky sultan pants. I really don't know what to call these things.
(Excuse the weird pouts. Apparently when it's cold I make 'sexy come hither/I just ate a lemon' face.)
This skirt is easily becoming one of my favorite pieces to wear and remix. I feel elegant, maybe too elegant for my day job? But for my night job, it's perfect. (night job = style blogger, duh.)
I don't mean to sound like Ms. Zoe but this week is bananas. If I forget to post this week, apologies in advance. Please know that I am not forgetting to get dressed.
