Casually catching up

I took a few days off of blogging to re-organize my thoughts (and to watch all three seasons of Veronica Mars on my computer when I should have been blogging), but starting today I am back in action with a rather ambitious posting schedule. Yes, schedule. Even though I used to be the one that scoffed at such a thing. Hopefully it will keep me from becoming stressed out and throwing together posts when I should be sleeping, and raise the quality of posts to boot.
This outfit was actually from last Wednesday, the day after my birthday. After going out to dinner and celebrating later (and harder) than expected, I overslept. With visions of margaritas dancing in my head, the alarm went off far too early. Luckily I had one of the new shirts that I received as a birthday gift from my mom. It's perfect for a casual day when I just can't deal with putting something creative together. Does anyone else have days like that? The top is nice enough for work, and versatile enough to pair easily with a slim-fitting skirt or a pair of black ankle-pants. Plus, it feeds into my obsession with polka dots and the color purple.
Also, I've got on my new crystal bullet necklace Ida gave to me as a birthday present. She got it from a crystal-man on the boardwalk in Venice Beach, California when she was there recently. I had actually sent her like 5 pictures of necklaces like this a few months ago because I was going to buy one from Etsy, but she remembered and beat me to it.

  8. Casual cuteness - looking great :)
    I got a few go to outfits I always come back to when I feel like keeping myself upright is enough of a struggle, no need to throw wardrobe choices in the mix.

  9. The blouse is pretty, and I really love the shoes and the necklace. My go-to at the moment appears to be jeans and a sweater. Boring, but there's way too much going on at school at the moment to plan for anything else.

    Do you take your pictures in the morning or evening? The light is beautiful here!

  13. This is such a cute look - I also feel asleep last week one night after a few too many margaritas and was incredibly unimpressed in the morning when my alarm went off.

    Also, I love Veronica Mars...even when they decided to change the intro in season 3.
