Outfit Post: Too School for Cool

Whenever we were walking around trying to figure out where to take some outfit pictures, we came across this sweet, chartreuse green wall.  Now, I have this as an accent color in our home, so I was really wanting to just take this wall home with me! But Shan assured me this was not possible! So we might have to put one of these pictures up in the house to make due.
We also found this neat little record store that had a sweet lime green wall too! Now on to more important things, like outfit details!
I found this lovely bone colored mini blazer in the sale section at Urban Outfitters where I always seem to find a few gems hiding somewhere beneath all the jumbled layers of clothing.  It was on sale for $19, score! I also picked up the blouse that I am wearing underneath, but I am wearing it backwards  because when you wear it the "correct" way, the blouse comes up way too high for my taste!  I paired my UO pieces with my favorite Uniqlo skinnies (best fitting jeans I have ever owned) that I picked up in London back in September! You might remember me wearing them HERE. (that was when I just discovered Uniqlo)  I topped the outfit off with a pair of neutral, patent, round-toed heels from Aldo that I have had for a few years now.  They never go out of style!!
Happy Tuesday everyone!

That blazer is COOL! I love it. So jealous of your find. I can never find anything cool at my UO. Probably because all the dirty hipsters pick through it before I get there.

I need to get myself a pair of UNIQLO jeans. My cousin SWEARS by them.

You look fab as always!

Blazer is fantastic! I haven't been finding much at UO lately...wish I'd come across something like this! I also love your shoes. Green is one of my favorite colors, and I prefer bright shades of it, like this!

The wall perfectly accessories your outfit! And same with me, everytime I pop into Urban Outfitters I walk out with something. I never ever plan on going there, I never ever plan on buying anything when I go in, I always forget that I find something but I do and always on sale too! Don't ya just love it!

Ciao

I love the blazer paired with the feminine top and jeans! And you are totally right: you can never go wrong with nude heels. Who doesn't like to add a few inches to the legs?

This is a hot outfit. First off, I love that you are rocking white in Dec. Secondly the pearls are a nice touch. Finally, the shoes are off the rocker.

Great, as usual.
