I never get to wear outfits like this anymore; this is such a Casual Friday kind of outfit I used to wear in my AmericaMart days! I actually had a business meeting last week, and this is what I wore! I am working on BIG things for Goat & Lulu this year, and starting early. And it was pretty fun to dress the part, too. :) I have had this blazer since my freshman year of college, and I about died when I put it on and it actually fit! I wanted to look polished but still laid back, so dark jeans and a ruffled top with lace detail fit the bill. And my Stella & Dot mother's necklace to remind me why I do Goat & Lulu in the first place. :)

I have gotten great wear out of this chevron maxi dress. I wore it this past weekend to two birthday parties, and it was comfortable and I loved layering several delicate gold necklaces with it. It's one of my best purchases of 2013, for sure.

For a casual day earlier this week, I wore this lightweight plaid tunic with jeggings and boots. Comfy, and I threw my heavy gray toggle cardigan sweater over it when I went outside, because we were back in the 40's today. And as You can probably tell from all the photos this week, I have been trying out wavy hair again, with a new curling iron! I got one of the new ceramic ones that don't have a clamp, it's just a "curling wand." I am clearly still getting the hang of it. Curling irons have never been my thing (I have used curlers/hot rollers since middle school!), as I have A LOT of hair, and curling section by section takes forever. But I really like the wand idea, and it's pretty easy (or getting easier), and though I have not mastered it yet, I like having a different look besides a straight bob.
