Here’s a real quick outfit that actually got way more love on Instagram than I expected. I sort of expected everyone to be tired of the neutral winter colors like I am – but looks like there are some of you who are still diggin’ the olive button-up blouse. Me personally, I like my olive best in vodka, but that’s neither here nor there.
These are my new Johnston Murphy oxford shoes that make me sort of feel like a tap dancer or rather a little like Frank Sinatra when he dances around sans the singing. I’m really trying to exhibit restraint from breaking out into musical number in these photos. Although that would have made for a pretty great Snapchat story in addition to me sneaking into my neighbors driveway because I like their wall color…
Anyway, happy hump day – it also happens to be my fantastical husbands birthday today! (Which may or may not be why I’m keeping today’s post short and sweet!)

February is going to be SO busy for me! For the rest of the month, I’ll have a different destination each weekend. Which is totally nerve-wracking, but really exciting in some ways. Am I prepared? Absolutely not. I’m flying by the seat of my pants and mostly overnighting a ton of things to make sure that I’m packing thoughtfully. I wish you guys could hop on the plane and head off with me, but I’ll do the next best thing by trying to document it as I go. Tomorrow is also a BIG day for me. I get little butterflies when I think about it, but make sure to check in on IG tomorrow to see what’s going on! I’ll be taking work with me too. Community Coffee has given me some special projects for social media so it definitely won’t be all play while I’m away.
Here is one of my favorite travel ready outfits – scroll through the whole post for the links!

You might remember this dress from my Instagram posts around NYFW, but I never actually got to post this full outfit – which actually works out better now anyway since ASOS is having a major blowout sale including this striped pencil skirt dress! This was one of my favorite dresses from my week in NYC and one of the pieces that I had Jordan overnight to me while I was there (husband of the year worthy). There are also quite a few other things that I have from ASOS that are also on sale – like my black pom pom ankle strap heels from this post and my plaid fringe skirt… that’s coming up in a post on APOL this week!
Other items included in the sale are some really great cocktail heels and dress selections right in time for New Year’s Eve parties. See my favorite ASOS sale picks at the bottom of this post!

While winter is still here (unfortunately for my sinuses), you can stay warm at a fraction of the price as some of my favorite puffer vests are on sale for almost half their original price. Puffer vests are always on the must-have list for fall and winter months, so they tend to sell out in sizes and colors pretty quickly, but luckily J.Crew Factory has restocked their vest inventory with more options that include colors perfect to wear into spring!
