Recent Outfits: Weekend Dinners, Campus Errands, Raok

This last weekend I decided that for Sunday supper at a friend's house I would dress like a mildly deranged grandmother. And I think I carried it off surprisingly well.

I wore a bubble hem dress from Forever 21 (bought years ago) with the purple cashmere cardigan from last week's Kaya dinner, a J Crew silk ruffle top in an ochre mustard color, charcoal Wolford hearts print tights, and Marc by Marc Jacobs captoe flats.

Today I wore a paisley print tie neck tibi dress with a cashmere MBMJ cardigan, Spanx tights, and the same captoe mbmj shoes. And I didn't snap a photo because I've posted both items a bunch here but I did take one of my coat. It was extra cold today and I was going to be running around all over town so I needed to bundle. Over it I wore this many years old MBMJ cape collar faux shearling canvas coat.

The meetings I had went very well, I accomplished various on campus errands, then I went to a lucrative focus group gig in Station Square. I have to decide how to use it. I could just dump it into savings but I've been pretty good at not shopping recently and might treat myself if I find something that strikes my fancy.

I meant to post this last week but Fashionism's Thegreyfox kindly sent to me (as a random act of kindness) this adorable denim chambray dress from H&M.
I quickly snapped a photo of and am excited to wear it in spring! It was so generous of her. It is a little short so I will probably wear it with tights or leggings as shown.

Thank you, Tien! I am trying my best to make use of what I have but the lure of new is always enticing.
