What a Working Girl Wants

I'm over winter. So totally and completely over winter. It's cold out. And it's windy and it's snowing. My skin is dry. And my shampoo, which sits on the windowsill of the window in the shower, froze today. I'm over winter.

The window displays at The Gap are now screaming "SPRING" at me as I walk by everyday. I was planning on doing some serious winter sale shopping with my Christmas money but then I needed a root canal and that is costing me. So, instead of added some much needed pieces to my winter wardrobe, I'm day dreaming of a new spring one. Here are just a few things I'm looking at to get me in the spring mood!













Polka-dot dress - Anthropologie












Brown Sandals - Steve Madden at Piperlime























Red raincoat - Old Navy








White Jeans - AG at Shopbop

I don't think I'll ever be ladylike enough to be confident that I wouldn't get white jeans dirty. SIGH.

I have a dress just like that! Real 50ties style don't you think?

Sooo I may be taking a teaching job which will call for an overhaul of my pathetic wardrobe! I've been trying to come up with stores for a 22 yr old HS teacher in the burbs of ATL and never thought of Anthropologie but that dress is LOVELY! Forget winter, it's all about spring anyways!

I'm loving to coat! I just came back from New York and loved the cold! It didn't freeze my shampoo though : /

It's a frosty TEN degrees in Baltimore today...If anyone needs me, I'll be in hibernation.

Those clothes are so cute! Ugh. Now I'm depressed. Out into the 0 degree weather I go. On my birthday, of all freaking days, nonetheless! I can't even wear cute clothes on my birthday!

Sarah said...

Thanks for the add!! I am loving that outfit especially those shoes! Hurry up spring!

California Girl said...

Great choices and the shoes are wonderful as is the red coat. You can at least look forward to Spring around April. We in northern New England have to wait until May. Seriously!

The white jeans look nice, but the shoes/sandals that model is wearing are HORRIBLE!

First off, if its cold enough to wear jeans, you shouldnt be wearing sandals, and it just makes the outfit look much less professional and tacky.

Just a casual male observation. Way too many women are wearing flip flops and sandals showing their ugly feet. About 80% that wear them shouldnt.
