Daily: Worth the Stress

This past weekend was filled with homework, more homework, studying, more studying and bits and pieces of fun in between. My wing-mates and I decorated Christmas trees, watched our university’s soccer and volleyball championship matches and made puppy chow. I guess it’s the little things in life that make the not-so-fun things worth the stress. Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Goodwill
Tee: Macy’s
Skirt: Ann Taylor LOFT
Tights: Kohl’s
Heels: Calvin Klein (via DSW)
Bag: Garage sale
Necklace: Charlotte Russe

Black with a shot of hot pink and different textures make for an easy outfit. Whenever I’m in a time crunch in the morning, I always reach for a black base with a pop of color, particularly when it involves dressing up with a skirt and tights. Speaking of which, aren’t these tights the best? The lace pattern is feminine, particularly when paired with high-heeled Mary Janes. 

Also, I was recently asked the following question: “Does the price of dresses you get at TJ Maxx varies by brand and all that? Or is there a general price?” Yes, the price of my dresses from TJ Maxx vary by brand, but everything at TJ Maxx is very affordable and great for budget-chic women. They always have a killer dress collection.
