To Work Smart not Hard

You may remember a week or so ago, when I ventured out to take outfit photos and forgot my camera's memory card.  It turned into a real "ah ha" moment, yadda yadda yadda.

Well, today I ventured out to take outfit pictures and forgot my camera.

I didn't throw a tantrum, but I didn't turn around either.  Today, after realizing my mistake, I continued on with the day's plans.  Those plans included filling the car with gas and visiting not just one but two grocery stores in the juuuuuuust above freezing rain (translation: my hair was a mess and I was cold, wet and tired).  Now, I'm not typically one to throw in the towel and I've got a plucky, can do type of attitude.  But, I also have my limits. Today, I decided to work smart and not hard. 

These paragraphs have been my way of easing into admitting that there are no outfit pictures to post today but I'm still counting the outfit as one of my thirty.

Here's how I intend to get around it.
I wore this jacket:


Over this turtleneck:


With this skirt:



And these shoes:



As far as accessories go, I wore a python-esque skinny belt from Charlotte Russe, some heather grey tights, big gold earrings and a smile.

I'm not going to lie.  It looked super cute.  Of course, I tend to be incredibly humble, so you might have actually found it to be absolutely adorable, life alteringly inspiring or perhaps even your favorite look ev-ah.  But, I'm not going to put words in your mouth. I'm just saying I looked good.
Too bad you missed it.

On the bright side (and isn't there always a bright side?) since I didn't get pictures today, I intend to wear this outfit again some day long after the 30 for 30 challenge is over and play it off like it's a brand new creation.   You should go ahead and stick around to watch me do it.
