Fashion Friday: Edition welcome to 2013

This is going to be a fairly brief Fashion Friday because I had a busy day and I desperately want to get to bed at a decent hour.

There was one point today where I realized I’d forgotten to eat breakfast and lunch (WHAT? WHO AM I?) because I was so busy running errands and I called in some Mexican food to pick up and actually honked at a car in front of me because he was driving so slow and I was desperate to get home and eat my food.

Also, I ran all my errands while wearing yoga pants, a fleece and my Uggs. With that in mind, you may want to take my fashion advice with a grain of salt.

But here are a few things I liked this week:

1. polka-dot chiffon shirtdress

I saw this in Old Navy yesterday. I even tried it on and it’s cuter on than this picture would lead you to believe. Also, it comes in gray.

I think it would be really great with leggings. And maybe a belt depending on how you feel about belts.

2. chevron delight cardigan

Photobucket

Caroline was sitting next to me earlier and we both saw this at the same time and said, “Oh! That’s cute!”

It’s not very often we agree on fashion these days so that feels like a win.

3. softest boat-neck sweater

Photobucket

I don’t know if I like this in this bright yellow, but it comes in other colors and it’s a good length.

4. laced in snow blouse

Photobucket

I really love this. Put a cami under it, throw on some jeans and cowboy boots. Perfection.

5. checked shirt

Photobucket

I’ve been looking for a good plaid shirt. And this one is on sale and comes in different colors.

6. monday morning top

Photobucket

One of these days I’m probably going to get sick of chevron. But that day is not today.

7. hatch handbag

Photobucket

I really like this bag. I like it the most in the emerald green but it’s sold out. So this is good, too.

But did you know that Pantone declared emerald green the color of the year for 2013. True story.

8. little birds embroidered shift dress

This is really darling. And I’d love it with leggings and boots.

9. high-low sweater

Photobucket

I like stuff like this. Because you can throw it on with jeans and boots and be comfortable yet appear put together. Says the girl who wore her yoga pants and Uggs all over town today sans makeup.

10. zola earrings

Kendra Scott is offering an extra 15% off sale items right now. Just enter the code cheers15 at checkout. There are lots of cute things, but these earrings in pink might be my favorite. Would be perfect for spring.

And that’s it for today.

Y’all have a good Friday.

    That dress is so cute and it’s from Old Navy. Nice. Love the high low sweater but tried to click on it and it says it’s out of stock. So cute though.

    I almost choked when I read this post. I did a little online shopping last week, and I picked all but one of those things….great minds…..The lace top and polka dot shirt were my top favorites.

    Don’t feel dissed here…but my college girls both refer to your outfit of errand running as the SPACESUIT!

    Any sweats or exercise pants tucked into Uggs seems to catch the title of spacesuit. Neither of the fashion snobs (I gave birth to) will dare wear it. But hey….who cares. You were probably awesome! Especially if you were wearing a hoodie on top!

    Love the Monday shirt!

    loved EVERYTHING except the Chevron item :p

    LOVE, love the Monday morning top! And the boat-neck sweater is cute too.

    And, sadly I’ve spent more time than I’d like to admit running errands in my “yoga” pants.
    I put yoga in quotes, because I’ve never actually done yoga (or really any exercise) in them. It just sounds a lot better than saying my, “today I gave up” pants. :)

    Thanks for sharing your fashion finds!!

    I thought you might enjoy this Tim Hawkins song about yoga pants. I’ve been singing it since Christmas! (you have to wait for him to stop harassing the homeschoolers for the song, at 1:20)
