She works hard for the money

So it took me long enough, but I finally got a pic up of my newest obsession! These high-waisted gray flannel pants fell into my lucky hands at a Salvation Army a few weeks back and I have been wearing them every chance I get. I work as a secretary for a tax office and find them perfect for work. Last week, I blogged about menswear inspired clothing and that was my inspiration for this outfit. My oxfords are from Aldo and have become a staple in my outfits. Now I just want a brown pair of oxfords. I've been scouring vintage and thrift shops for a bargain, but have been unlucky so far. I may just have to give in a buy a pair new or used on Etsy for a higher price than I would like.

In other news, Ethan got a job! This means we can finally get our own place. I am so excited to finally live on my own and gosh, to decorate it! We inherited a bunch of lovely furniture from his grandmother including a fantabulous antique pink velvet slipper chair! So excited!

Faux fur stole: thrifted, Cream Blouse: Wal-Mart, Pants: thrifted, Shoes: Aldo

You couldn't see my necklace really in any of my photos and can barely see it here, but I was wearing my favorite necklace of late which is a pocket watch affixed to a long chain from American Eagle. I love it so.

I also want to take the time to apologize for the poor quality of these photos as I have the cheapest camera around. I have to photoshop them to the best of my ability. Hence why I am not a graphic designer nor photographer.

Happy Friday everyone!

  3. Gah, I'm so jealous! I've been looking for pants like that everywhere and now I keep seeing bloggers posting about getting some. D:
    You look amazing. I love the outfit. I'm also looking for a watch necklace thing because wristwatchs are uncomfortable and make my wrist itchy.

  6. I just saw your blog link on Lauren's FB wall and had to comment. You really have a knack for making ordinary items glamorous. Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous!! I will definitely be checking out your blog often. I love thrift stores and finding steals. This will, for sure, be an inspiration for new ideas!

    I think your photos look incredibly professional. I actually thought you had one of those fancy cameras. You should give yourself more credit. :)
