a uniform of sorts

The past few weeks have been crazy. It all started 3 weeks ago when I had my first trial (I'm batting 1000)! I was working until 9-10 pm every night so I didn't get a chance to take pics of what I wore. But generally the rule for women is to dress conservatively so as not to offend jurors so I wasn't wearing very exciting outfits that week anyway. Then it was Thanksgiving week, which was hectic in itself. I went to MD for the holiday and had dinner with my family. I also got to see some of my biffles from college, go Black Friday shopping (got a great deal on a Theory blazer and a J. Crew sweater - will be gifts for me for Christmas), got a Christmas tree with my parents, and went to one of my favorite restaurants - Founding Farmers. Oh and I broke my first nail (alllll the way down) so I had to get a manicure and chop all of them off. Guess I'll have to start over again from scratch! Ulta had a buy 1 get 1 free Deborah Lippmann Butter London sale on Cyber Monday so I bought 4 glitter colors and am anxiously waiting for them to arrive.
I tried to pack light so I could fit 2 pairs of boots in my luggage (taking full advantage of the colder weather, lol), so I basically wore a uniform of a flannel shirt/blouse with this sweater/moto jacket, boots, and my leather jacket when I went outside. It was easy to match and didn't take any effort getting dressed every day.
Jacket: Ann Taylor

P.S. - why do my iphone pics come out so grainy? I feel like everyone else is some expert photographer when it comes to cell phone pictures! Help is appreciated!

  4. My pics are just as grainy!! Must be because I still have a 4s?
