New pants- to be altered

These pants are off to get hemmed and to get the pockets sewn down and removed so they fit better through the hip. Since they are cream and not white I think I can wear these in the Winter as well as Spring and Summer.

Monday night - New Hidden Hills Skinny jeans

These are the jeans! They are quite snug, but they will clearly stretch to fit as I wear them. They fit well and I'm happy with them. They are off to get hemmed and taken in a pinch in the waist. I get them back on Tuesday the 2nd of February.

New Jeans on their way

I ordered some new jeans via Nordstrom (they were out of my size in the store). They are Paige "Hidden Hill" skinny jeans.

I need another pair of skinny jeans because I wear my Anlo's constantly and I want them to last as long as possible. My Anlo's had to be taken in a LOT in the waist and are quite narrow at the bottom, but they fit in the thigh which is always my biggest challenge.

From everything I've read the Paige's should fit well, but I can't find any reviews on the skinny fit; only the bootcuts. The Nordstrom site says these are "narrow through the thigh" which is ominous. I can always return, though!

I tried the 29s in the store in a bootcut and couldn't zip them. Hopefully the 30s, which I ordered, will fit...and I am losing a *tiny* bit of weight.

Saturday - mini at home facial, massage, workout, tons of reading and homework

Purging - Keep?

Keeping the belt, but I'm giving the sweater away. It's just too small.

Purging the Sweater Drawer - Keep?

I might keep this sweater, but just for weekends.

That being said...Sunday Studying

This peanut butter color isn't particularly flattering, so I have to wear something next to my face that's a better color.

Do I Owe an Explaination?

I've been getting up and working out before work in the morning. This has resulted in two changes that are not necessarily good for this blog! I haven't been posting and I've been forced to make wardrobe choices that are safe, since I have to pre-determine them the night before. So, even though I've not been posting my outfits are pretty much things I've worn and posted before anyway! It's a little dangerous for me to have to pack my clothes up the night before. I'm terrified that I'll forget to bring a camisole and have to run around the whole day with my boobs hanging out. So far I haven't had any disasters, though.

For the blog, I thought about switching to posting at night, but without any natural light it's nearly impossible to see my pics (I posted once at night), so I don't really see the point. I get home from class at 10 three nights a week, so there's not much hope of that situation changing, either.

I really miss being able to go back and see what worked from the previous week; it has helped me be more informed when shopping and making outfit decisions. I'll post when I can (weekends, non-school nights once there's more daylight in the evening), but for the time being this is au revoir, at least until summer break.

On a slightly different subject, I did find some really cute workout gear at Target. I recommend their "semi-fitted" line of workout pants. I bought a pair of knee pants in heather gray that look a little like trendy "harem pants", and I bought a nice pair of black pants with a drawstring waist that are very flattering and not too low in the rise. I also got a thin cotton top with a wide scoop neck and cap sleeves (it's actually a sleep shirt). One of my problems is that my sports bra comes up quite high, so I am always looking for non-crewneck tops that come up high enough to cover my bra.

Hopefully this working out won't make me lose too much weight - I can't afford to buy a whole new wardrobe!

Tuesday - to the dentist

This sweater has a zipper down the back, which is cute. Unfortunately after sitting for only a short time the zipper bagged out right in the bum, and made me look like I had a giant booty. I'm going to wash this and dry it on low to shrink it back down and then wear it with the zipper in the front only!

Friday - purple top black boots

This dark purple silk Vince blouse is one of my favorite things!
