First Fashion(ish) Post

I’m baaaaack! ;)

Hope you all are having a great day. 

I’m eating my random lunch right now {turkey, mustard, and cheese on an Arnold thin + hummus & veg + special K chips!}, and thought it would be a great time to do my first “fashion(ish)” post.

I say “fashion(ish)” because I, by no means, consider myself to be an expert on fashion, nor someone who has a style that any other girl would necessarily even want to emulate.  I leave the real fashion to my personal and blogger friend, Kinsey, who blogs over at  You should check her out sometime! :)

When it comes to my personal “style,” I’d describe it as a mix of midwestern girl meets focus on comfort meets professional-wear meets likes to try new things.  That’s a mouthful – or in my case, a very full itsy bitsy closet!

I have decided to start sharing some of my outfits (emphasis on the “some” because I am about to start studying for the bar exam and expect to be lucky if I even throw on a pair of jeans each day) because: A) I think it’s kinda fun!, and B) I often find myself saying “I wonder where she got that (insert clothing item/piece of jewelry/pair of shoes/or bag) from?!”

So, let’s get to it!

Here is my outfit for to-dizzle:

Pearl Earrings: Target, but shhhh…some people think they are real, and I’m not telling! ;)
Sweater: J.J. Basics, via Nordstrom Rack ($16.99 hollaaaa!)
White Tank Top: Forever 21 (home of best basic tanks for only $4.99 a piece)
Floral Pencil Skirt: Focus = 2000 via Marshall’s
Belt: Came with the skirt (who says I’m not a bargain shopper?!)
Grannie Pannie Hose: Nordstroms, via Chicago Forgot it was May
Black Patent Leather Pumps: BCBG MaxAzria (got them 50% from the BCBG store 2 years ago with a new year’s dress and have

{Yes, I am officially a bathroom-mirror-picture-taking weirdo!}

I actually got this sweater to wear over my dress for graduation last Sunday, but when I tried the 2 pieces together, I didn’t think the combo looked right, so I went with the sweater you can see pictured here.  I thought about returning this sweater, but then realized I kind of loved it, and I need any excuse for more color in my wardrobe (black clothing lovers anonymous member, over here).

There you have it – the first BEBT fashion(ish) post.  Big day, folks! I will eventually make this into a page too. 

I promise I’m gonna get to those pages some day! ;)

**Something to talk about: What do you think? Do you like the idea of fashion(ish) posts?  Or should I stick to my day job?

See ya tomorrow fo reals this time!
