Technically I should be wearing a sweater today and maybe a heavy jacket. It is that cold. I think I can speak for all of us when I say ‘Spring, where the h are you?’ Doesn’t the atmosphere care that I have spring outfits ready and lined up to be worn? Weather can be so selfish, sometimes. But on the bright side, it’s not scorching hot already here and that means I can still wear layers. More importantly denim on denim layers. You know I’m always happy to wear a Texas tuxedo. 

How is your week going? I feel like I haven’t even seen you guys much this week. Has it been crazy for you? For some reason, this week is going about 90 mph. I mean, it’s already Thursday. I had this realization today at the bank. And not in a “yes, it’s almost Friday!” way. More like in an “oh crap, it’s Thursday??” way. The bad news: my to do list is probably not going to happen this week. The good news: well… it is almost Friday. One should never be angry about Friday showing up so early.

PS: For those who asked, the peplum top I wore in yesterday’s post is from Target


Jacket: Bloom

Top: old Gap // Similar

    Where is your necklace from? I absolutely love this outfit. Always wondered how to do denim on denim. Should've known you'd be the one to rock it 🙂

    I'm also in Texas (College Station), and I also had a blazer and cute top all picked out for today. But it's cold enough that instead I'm wearing a turtleneck and boots, and I'm in my office huddled in front of the space heater. Come on TX, it's April!

    So love this look! Funny that you called the denim on denim look a "Texas Tuxedo" because early today I saw another blog call it a "Canadian Tuxedo". Funny!

    That blazer is too cute! I love that it is 2 colors! That bag is really cute too and I love that it is Target! I too have been wondering where spring is. It is currently rainy and maybe 50 degrees, which is unacceptable for April.

    It was our first week back at school, so this week's actually been really slow for me – but I'm always excited for Friday! (Wait, I just forgot it was Thursday and thought it was Wednesday, so maybe it is going fast??)

    Love the Texas tuxedo – that chambray top looks amazing with your jeans and I'm still SO nervous to put denim on denim in the same color family (blue denim on white denim, totally fine – but blue on blue? EEK!). I'm going to need to try this for sure!
