Shopgirl Selfies

 top: similar / cape: bloom / denim: 7FAM  / purse: kelly wynne / booties: madewell
It’s a bit ironic that even though I get dressed most days, many of my outfits rarely make it to the blog. But they do make it onto my phone, the keeper of all my shameless selfies. Today was windy and cold and I just didn’t feel like getting gussied up for photos, but then I realized as I was taking yet another selfie that I had plenty of outfits to share. I present to you my ever-growing collection of shopgirl selfies. When you work in a room full of mirrors all day, you are bound to take a photo. 
Thank goodness for the selfie, right? That’s a sentence I never thought I’d say.

 silk top: similar / faux fur: bb dakota / jeans: 7 for all mankind / booties: bloom
 blazer: bloom / tee: j.crew  / pants: j.crew / heels: madewell
 sweater: wildfox / pants: 7FAM / heels: similar
 top: similar / jeans: 7FAM / coat: bb dakota (on sale!) / heels: similar
sweater: bloom / jacket: old navy / pants: free people (similar) / heels: bloom  / necklace: old anthro
coffee: triple non-fat , no whip mocha πŸ˜‰
Of course, not all shopgirl selfies are fancy. Sometimes you just got to wake up early on a Sunday, grab two coffees and get to work. Exhibit A: 
(If sweat pants and greasy hair doesn’t mean hard work, then I don’t know what does.)

You can follow more selfies on my instagram

    That leopard coat looks amazingly cute on you, but not so cute in the photos on BB Dakota’s site… do you think your photos are more true to life? I love the idea of a leopard coat, but IMHO leopard is one of those prints that can go wrong very quickly!

    Cute! I love the fur vest and leopard sweater. Been looking for pieces just like these. The fur vest looks better on you than on the model.
