What I Wore: Day and Night

Yesterday was an extremely busy day. The night before was a can't sleep night and I didn't actually close my eyes until 6am. I'm sick of hearing that I should go to sleep earlier, because trust me, I'm not trying to stay awake that long.

Under a heavy cloud of exhaustion, my husband and I went to my mom's friend's house to fix her DVD player problems, then we had lunch at Panera Bread and ran errands.  We didn't get home until 4:30 and I frantically got ready for our night out.  My darling friend Erika planned a surprise 30th birthday party for her husband Keith and it was also my friend Danielle's birthday.  We ate dinner and then went to a local bar to listen to a cover band where I danced poorly, sang loudly, and sucked down some amaretto sours.

So yesterday included two completely different outfits, which was interesting to my husband since he claims, "Dudes just need one outfit a day."

Day look:

Outfit consists of:
Sweater: green cardigan found at Sears
Necklace: Aimee necklace found at Tree and Kimball
Tank top: stone tank by American Eagle found at TJ Maxx
Jeans: Beau jeans found at TJ Maxx
Shoes: gray ballet flats found at Gap Outlet

Two things about this outfit: 
1) the lovely Lisa of Tree and Kimball designed this necklace and named it after me! Her new spring line is filled with gorgeous dip dyed lace creations that she named after fellow etsians. I can't begin to say how flattering that is and how sweet Lisa is. 

2) this sweater may be recognizable to family and friends. That's because I bought it over 10 years ago to go to college. It's like the Energizer bunny of sweaters. There's no pilling, or fading, or wear of any sort (except one of the buttons escaped and I have yet to fix it). It's done this well and I must say I've never been careful with it. I mean it lived through 4 years of college washings!

Night look:

The second picture is what happens when your husband says, "Do something interesting!" Incidentally, this is also my signature dance move.

Outfit consists of:

Sweater: drape front black cardigan by Joie found at Last Chance
Sweater: 1980s zebra print sweater by S/J designs found at Purple Deer { more zebra print here at Greatest Friend and here at Volenska Vintage }
Belt: clear and black belt found at Last Chance
Pants: black jeggings by 7 for all mankind found at TJ Maxx
Boots: black Madden Girl boots found at TJ Maxx
