a few brews

I've had a wicked cold all week, but that must have been what I needed to start this blog today. That, and the push from one of my best friends (you know who you are!) spurred me to beg my very confused boyfriend to take pictures of me in our backyard. Have to start somewhere, right?

Anyway, today was a somewhat special day at work. A local brewery is expanding and my firm is designing the new building, something that will hopefully revitalize a part of the city that desperately needs it. The event was outside and my job was to network a little, but mostly live tweet as the mayor and other individuals spoke. It's super windy and generally autumnal today, so I'd like to show you my outerwear (what I ended up wearing to the event) and my office attire. Onto the photos and outfit deets!

First, the obvious selfie as I waited for my boyfriend. Hi!

What am I supposed to do with my arms? No, seriously, I turned around to ask as he took this photo.

Sweater: J.Crew
I scored this last Friday on lunch. It was on the sale rack, yes! and another 40% off, (in my best Nicki Minaj voice...) yaaaas!

Pants: Old Navy
I really abhor the quality and sizing consistency at ON, but these have served me pretty well as I continue to lose weight. Also, let me say these are pants, even though my muscular calves will have you believe they're leggings. 

Shoes: Softt
Do these things really look that ragged? Eeeks. They are a year old or so and were a Nordstrom Rack score. They are incredibly comfortable and a great fall staple because of the suede and patent wedge. Oh, also, give me a bow? I'm buying it.

Sunglasses: Prada
Bracelet: J.Crew

Oh, and my jacket is Cole Haan -- a recent Costco find. My Burberry-like scarf is amazing and from Lord and Taylor.
