 we had a fundraiser for our school, not super fancy but still nice.  after setting up for it all day, i put on my most comfortable heels.

 date night at a friends’ restaurant for a special dinner.  i wanted to get extra dressy because i rarely have the chance.  i got this romper for only $22!  it was definitely a risky outfit for me and pushing the limit in the length, but i think the opaque tights help with the risqué factor.  and at the price, even if i only wore it once it was worth it.

romper – forever 21 //  tights – target //  heels – target //  belt – target //  earrings & necklace – lisa leonard designs

kids at school, work at fred & betty’s

shirt – be still clothing company // camouflage pants – target //  flats – target //  bracelet – lisa leonard designs //  earrings – nickel & suede

and for full disclosure, yesterday i wore the shirt above for the second day in a row, after sleeping in it.  i wore super saggy sweats and my hair piled on top of my head.  no pic, just being honest.  not every day earns the privilege of my time and energy to get dressed ;)
