These loafers look cool, and I'm glad to have something from my fall wishlist, but they tore.my.feet.up. I returned the burgundy pair I bought (and the gold boat shoes) on principle alone - I cannot stand flats (flats! of all things!) that hurt my feet. No bueno. I'm keeping these since I wore them, but hopefully I'll be supplementing with a comfier pair soon.
My face isn't this grainy in real life, I swear. Also - notice how the triangle on this necklace is popped up on the right? Yeah, it will not stay down at all. Not a huge fan of the quality here.
I had a Friday night party to attend and not a lot of time to make it out the door (literally less than 1/2 hour), so I quickly changed into something slightly dressier for the evening's activities.
My fake, "I'm sick of taking so many pictures because they're all turning out blurry" face. Sorry J.
So blurry, but shows the jeans color pretty well.

I typically don't mind going straight from work to whatever after-work event I have going on; usually my standard office wear is fine for happy hour or dinner with the girls. Fridays, on the other hand, are a different story. I was heading to a friend's birthday at a downtown(ish) bar, so I didn't want to roll up in the exact same thing I'd been wearing since 7 am. I swapped the leopard flats for black heeled booties, added a camel moto jacket, and lost the scarf (mostly... it was cold!) so the necklace could stand out, and in less than 5 minutes I had a completely different look that was appropriate for the party. I think even my J could agree that this was one of my fastest "going out" looks ever. What's your best tip for changing from work-weary to party-ready on Friday night?
I'll be doing a similar presto-change-o later this week - I have some dinner/happy hour plans lined up to celebrate my birthday on Friday! :)
