Daily Style: Seven Minutes is Far From Heaven

Oh, Wow. One of those days. I Tell ya.
Necklace: Forever 21 (5.99)
Cardigan: H&M (16.00)
Dress (belt included): H&M (24.00)
Tights: Target (5.00)
Shoes: Target (sale 6.99)
Today started out on a very low note. I awoke feeling abnormally well rested, "this is too good to be true" I thought. It was too good to be true, I was so well rested because it was 6:53! I needed to leave for today's college fair in seven minutes! Somehow the stars aligned and this outfit emerged from the mountainous pile on my floor. What's this? I actually feel like I look nice today?! Yes! Despite forgoing all makeup, save for a swipe or two of mascara, I'm feeling good. Finally. I wish I could say that this college fair was worth scrambling for, but it wasn't. Just a lot of standing around and repeating "no, we don't offer a nursing degree, we're a fine arts college, see, it says that right there on my sign." Work has been stressful lately, I'm counting down the days until the end of my travel season in December. I can't wait! Did I mention it snowed the other day?
Jen, from JenLovesKev is wearing the same tights today! Yeah Target!

Haha! "Do you offer a nursing degree?"

People always say "there's no such thing as a stupid question" however, I beg to differ. Whenever I've closed down my shop (a smoothie shop in a fitness center) people will walk up to me as I'm counting the money from the till and ask me "are you still open?" I might add that I as I am counting the money, I'm standing behind a huge "CLOSED" sign. Sigh. Sometimes I wonder about humanity.

You look great! No one would ever guess you overslept.

"...I might add that I as I am counting the money, I'm standing..."

wow, speaking of wondering about humanity, where is any semblance of correct sentence structure or grammer in my above sentence?? Le Sigh.

Ha! I get it though! In the admissions office we seriously get the dumbest questions, mostly about medical degrees! weird!

Awesome tights! I liked how Jen wore them too. I wish I could get away with those at my job. Too bad:(

I was gonna ask if you and Jen called each other and planned it.
I like your 4 minute getup, you look cute! Although I secretly hate you too for the effortless beauty and chic-ness.

OOh I LOVE this tights! They are so completely fun and right about of different. (Love them on Jen too!) Amazing job for 7 minutes- I wish I could look that good in a rush. :)

great outfit - on the fly or not!

I work at a liberal arts university art gallery - we get all sorts of crazy questions/requests...I guess it comes with the territory of working with the public!

Lexie said...

aww! i worked in the admission office of my college and it took A LOT out of me ... polite chit chat, awkward questions ... i understand what you're going through!

you look awesome though! those tights are adorable and i love your glasses.

I hate those rushed mornings, but once in a while, I really come up with a great outfit by just whipping things on... my intuition takes over rather than overthinking an outfit. Loving the leopard tights - I've had a pair I found at an outlet store for $1 and never worn them... you've inspired me to dig them out and try!

E said...

I need to hit up Target! Those tights are such a great touch with this outfit and I love your shoes, too!

Toothfairy said...

I like your outfits very much, especially your gorgeous tights! Do you wear them also with holes or throw away then?
