Today was a work day in which I set up camp at a coffee shop and work like a mad women uploading for hours the new collection for Bloom. What I want to wear on these days is pajamas, while being wrapped in a warm blanket. What I should wear is real clothes sans blanket. (You should always wear real clothes, by the way. Always.) I suppose stretchy jeggings and a big, cozy sweater are a close second to pj's. But still -- the blanket was missed. 

Today a 14 year old told me she liked my outfit. She's either a very sophisticated teen or I'm dressing like a tween again. You know what? I'm going to go with sophisticated teen. She knows the chicness of exposed striped socks when she sees them.

  16. I recently discovered the skinny jean-exposed sock-bootie look and I, too, love it! It lets me wear warm socks with my cute booties  in this South Dakota winter while still sporting my beloved skinnies. I am so glad this look is "in".

  68. Is it funny that I take it as a huge compliment if my 4th graders love my outfit? The other day, one of my fashionable students told me she had the same hot pink skirt from (little a) abercrombie. Although my skirt was not from there, I did feel just a tad bit more stylish.

    Love those jeans! I adore the whole dotted denim trend!

  75. So excited to see the new Bloom collection!  And I love that you put together such a perfectly cozy outfit that still has so much sartorial interest.  I have wedge booties just like these and wear them all the time, aren't they the greatest?!
