Pattern Mania

Blouse: Hinge, Skirt: Vince Camuto, Shoes: Ann Taylor, Tights: Gap,
Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Simon Sebbag, Ring: vintage
This is my "Holy crap, it's January and I can go outside without risking frostbite" outfit. I love this blouse, but the pattern can get a little overwhelming if it's not tucked into something — for some reason, that makes a HUGE difference. (Apparently I can't get enough, though, because I just realized it matches this blog almost perfectly.) Anyway, I've been waiting and waiting to pair it with this flowy skirt until it was warm enough to risk semi-bare legs, and thankfully, it's been unnaturally warm here the past few days. (I have to say, if this is what global warming feels like, I'll take it.) I was really excited to be celebrating mid-40's, vaguely sunny weather in Minneapolis until some friends out in San Diego informed me that it was in the upper 70's and sunny there. Suddenly my joy was severely diminished. In the words of Stephanie Tanner, "Rude."

These pictures almost didn't see the light of day. I am severely technically challenged and somehow managed to save them to my camera's internal memory, rather than the memory card. Because the photos weren't on my memory card, the only way to get them off was to transfer them directly from my camera with some type of cable. But since I keep all of my cords/cables stored in a giant, jumbled "electronics box" (which also contains old remotes and the VHS tapes I used to tape ANTM in college) and have next to no idea what most of them do, clearly that wasn't an option. Luckily, the several nice salesmen at Best Buy took pity on me (probably because they were looking to put a stop to my incoherent explanation) and scrounged up a replacement cable. AND they gave it to me for free. You read that right, FREE. Thirty minutes of flirting, plus a free camera cable? Not bad for a day's work.
