Casual Friday, and Sales

IMG_2259It’s friday, finally.  Work this week has made the whole thing seem very long; too many really early mornings and minor “emergencies” that add stress but don’t really make anything better.

Today’s look is almost completely reruns:

Technically I don’t think the purse goes with the outfit, but it was brand new and I wanted to carry it.  It’s cute (although VERY girly). I am really fond of Melie Bianco’s stuff.

Here’s some detail on the necklace and bracelet:

The bracelet wraps around twice, while the necklace is a piece of agate that’s been wire-wrapped.

I mentioned sales for a reason.  Coldwater Creek has everything already marked down an additional 40% off.  As you can probably tell, they are my go-to place for pants for 2 reasons:  First, they make comfortable fabrics and second, I wear a smaller size and it therefore feeds my ego.  To give you an idea, I tried on a pair of Dockers Khaki’s the last time I was at Marshall’s and had to wear a 24.  I wear a 22 in Not Your Daughter’s Jeans.  However I wear a 20 in Coldwater Creek knit jeans and Ponte pants.  And since I like the fabrics a LOT better than the Dockers, I intend to stick with them.  This link will take you to all the pants that are currently on sale.  I also rather like their cardigans, although I’m not terribly fond of their t-shirts. Make sure you read the comments if you want to get the truest feel for the sizing, but I almost ALWAYS end up going down a size.

Linking up with Fashion Friday, Favorite Frock Fridays, 235, Aloha Friday and My Friday Fancies.
