Same Accessories Over And Over


I find that I am a creature of habit when it comes to accessories. I sometimes wear the same jacket and shoes every day. I rarely change handbags, but when I do, I carry that bag for weeks on end.

I worried about that when I decided to post daily outfit photos. But this is really what I'm wearing. So, to keep it honest, here you go.

Today I'm wearing the same jacket and boots and purse I've been drawn to all week. But the basic outfit is different. This dress is a bit body hugging for my liking but it's so comfortable. It's a risk because this type of dress shows every bump and roll. But the ruched side of the dress makes it lots more flattering and less body-stocking-y. (I know, not a word or a thing!) I love the pattern of the dress. I also really like the sleeve detailing with the panel of cotton on the underside.

My husband comes home from his tour tomorrow. I can't wait to see him and to snuggle up and finish watching The Wire season 3! We are loving this show. If you've seen all the seasons, please no spoiler alerts. Thanks. I would tell you what else I'm looking forward to, but this blog is rated PG-13.









Dress and Jacket: Simply Vera by Vera Wang (Kohl's)
Boots: Candies (Kohl's)
Tights: Gap
Scarf: BR
Sunglasses: Proenza Schouler
Bag: DKNY via TJ Maxx

The Wire is a great series! We watched it when it was on because we also watched The Sopranos. Then when they both went off the air we cancelled HBO. We are cheap like that :)

I do not see any lumps or bumps in these photos. You look gorgeous darling! Have fun when the hubby gets home. Heather

Those boots are fabulous - I can see why you're wearing them again and again. And I love them with this dress; so unexpected.

It's funny because I just posted today that I'm breaking a blogging rule by wearing the same scarf two days in a row. I wouldn't think twice if I weren't blogging.

Enjoy your weekend with your hubby!

Ok, first of all, you want to talk about slammin' bodies? Because damn girlllll, you're lookin' smokin' in that dress! Second of all, I love love love the wire. So jealous of people who are still watching it- I was so sad when I finished the series. Oh well, onto Breaking Bad now :)

LOL...I am guilty of that - which is why you will never see my bag in my pictures unless its a special day and I did change it...lol but at least your bag matches with your outfits..mine...hmmmm thats another story on another blog. I love your boots - you look awesome as usual :) have a great weekend.

Pretty gorgeous dress to me....:) I have one that kinda looks like yours, it's just whiter in the check area...not that easy to spiff up for heavy winter dressing, lol.
Don't worry about your accessories girlie!! I used to change my purse every Sunday night so I'd have a new one for the work week....now? I'll use the sucker until the handles break off!! jk..hehehe:) Happy weekend!! Enjoy catching up with your hubs!

Oooh almost got a little R rated on the blog! ;) How cool that your hubby tours, my man just goes on stuffy business trips- not quite as exciting! I am loving the pattern of this dress on you and I'm the same way- for some reason I have very little interest in handbags so mine stays the same. Happy to be back-need to catch up now :)

I hope you have a great weekend with your husband! I tend to go through periods of grabbing the same item out of my closet over and over again. It's weird that having a blog makes you realize things like that. :)

What a beautiful dress! The boots are amazing too! Have a great weekend.

One of the reasons I like blogging is that it forces me not to wear the same thing every day or I think I would so be there. I saw this Simply Vera dress and really liked it...it looks fabulous on you! No one will every notice if you repeat shoes and boots etc. We all worry too much!

Amanda said...

HAHAHA yeaaaah gurrl - I can read in between your PG-13 lines ;)
Anyway - love this outfit! That dress is so awesome, the sleeves totally set it apart, and you are rocking it - you look great in it!!
And, I'm like you - I tend to carry the same bag, wear the same jewelry (it's so much easier that way) but the blog has really helped because I realize when things pop up in so many of my outfit photos and then I try to switch it up! :)

That entire outfit is fabulous girl! I love the jacket, dress, boots and purse! HAHAHA I have the same problem. I sport my LV bag almost everyday and wear my pearls with everything. I haven't done many outfit posts, but when I start I'll probably feel the same way you do. Lovely pics.

by "bump and roll" do you mean, "amazing curves?" because that's all I'm seeing, Tracy! That's all I see!!! :) I totally heart that jacket, by the way-- I'm not a fan of shearling, but that jacket is just amazing. And don't get me started on those boots. Just don't. :)

I am so guilty of wearing the same stuff everyday, so I like to mix up my photos and change the order of things! haha.

I have an undeniable obsession with your hair color. This dress is pretty phenomenal, too. The print is insane balls, and it works really well on you because you have a hot-ass body. BAM.

I love this!! That dress looks gorgeous on you! But I know what you mean... whenever I wear a dress like that, I feel like I have to stand up super tall and suck in constantly. lol
