Stripes & Bows

Hi friends & fashionistas! :)

Bar studying has begun, and I've managed to put on jeans all 3 days so far -- 3 cheers for me!

Good thing I didn't put away my warmer clothes and shoes yet, because the weather has been all sorts of cray-zee here in chi-city lately.  Today, I woke up to a thunderstorm and 50ish degrees, and it is now 69 degrees and sunny.  Go figure!

Here's today's look:

{Sorry for not looking @ the camera! I'm going to be an attorney, not a photographer!} 

Jeans: Modern Low Rise Straight (in Demi Curve) via Levi's Curve ID
Long Black Tank Top w/ Lace Neck Detail: Target
Long Black & Tan Striped Open Cardigan: aryn K. via Macy's 
Black & White Polka Dot Bow Headband: Target
Pearl Earrings: Target (I swear I do own other earrings -- guess I need to start being more creative!) 
Black Suede Loafers: Steve Madden (verrrrry old!) 

Close up:

Close up of the headband + awkward face:

I'm a huge hair-accessory fan -- especially on days where I am throwing my hair up into a ponytail.

I'm gonna keep riding the headband train for as long as I can before I actually start feeling like a 5-year-old, kay?! ;)

This look worked out well today with the rain (hair up was a must!), except I should have opted for rain boots, because my feet were pretty well soaked all day.  No sweat, the sun is shining now, and my tootsies are drying!

Side note -- if any of you girls are in the market for a well-fitting, inexpensive pair of jeans, stop into a Levi's and check out their new(ish) Curve ID line.  The jeans I have on today are one of the best fitting pairs of jeans I've ever owned, they were only $59.50, and I needed no hemming @ all! Pretty saweeet if ya ask me! :)

**Something to talk about: Do you ride the headband train? What's your go-to rainy day outfit?

See ya'll a little laters!
