Feathers and sequins and steals...OH MY!



What I'm Wearing:
Shirt: Cynthia Rowley (TJ Maxx)  |  Pants: Blank NYC  |  Purse:  Francesca's Collections 
Sunglasses: Gift from mom   |  Shoes: Simply Vera

I am currently obsessed with tank blouses...seriously.  I purchased a whole bunch of them from TJ Maxx right after graduation and have worn them almost daily to work.  Because I wear a white lab coat, these light weight fashionable blouses are PERFECT to wear tucked into a nice pair of slacks.  Now I've also begun wearing them with shorts or skinny jeans on my days off, and they have QUICKLY become my favorite go-to tops!  I love the playful feather pattern on this particular blouse - it goes with so many different outfit combinations!  (P.S. My shoes are covered in black SEQUINS.  I wish they showed up better in the photos, but you can take my word...they're pretty awesome.)  See how another fashion blogger styled this top here.

Today I spent the morning meeting with my insurance agent (boooooring) and then doing a little shopping around town with my mom.  Maurice's is one of my favorite stores, and I managed to walk out with nothing more than this adorable necklace which was marked down to $4.99.  Talk about a steal!  (And of course Calvin decided he wanted in on the photo taking action.  Thanks, buddy.)


I also found this adorable decorative plate at a consignment shop.  It will go perfectly on top of my piano once I move into my new home!

Featuring cat-butt-photo-bomber Calvin.  Because, you know, every photo needs a cat butt.

I plan on spending the rest of my evening relaxing, gearing up for a full day of work tomorrow. Wednesday is my surgery day, so I'll probably do a little studying in preparation for tomorrow morning's procedures.  Surgery and anesthesia still make me a little nervous as a new grad, so I want to be on top of my game.  Enjoy your evening, friends!
