I'm in awe

I tried to get Magnum PI to join in the fun but she wasn't really interested.  Yes, her name is Magnum PI.  She has a mustache.  I swear. 

Outfit info
Sweater - Madewell, Jeans - Gap, Boots - Aldo, Watch - Michael Kors
Awesome Missoni blanket in the background - Target

I'm in total awe of people who work from home and get dressed in real clothes.  And do their hair and makeup.  And wear accessories.  Every day.  I stayed home to get some work done that required quiet concentration today and all I could manage was jeans, a sweater, boots and a watch.  And a watch doesn't even really count.  Plus, none of this even happened until the afternoon when I had somewhere I had to be.

So, work from homers who dress adorable, I applaud you.  

Oh, you know who else I applaud?  My friend over at Points of Interest who gave me that awesome nail polish for Christmas.  Those nails are the only thing really elevating this look.  My Jouer lip gloss from Birchbox helps too. 


  1. Awesome! I'm so glad you like that one :) I saw it and I was like "This is vixeny like Julie."

    And? If I was working for home, I would be wearing hot pink plaid PJ pants and a cami. And a sweatshirt. And slippers. And nothing would match. So you can feel better than that ;)

  2. Oh, and also? Do you love Birchbox? I really want to try it, but with my weird wheat thing, I'm a little nervous to. I'd hate the spend the money and not be able to use the products.

  3. But you would be totally adorable in those PJs!

    First box from Birchbox, I was a big fan. My second one is supposed to be on it's way. I don't remember if there was a spot on the profile to fill in allergies, but since the boxes are supposed to have a certain level of customization, I wonder if they could take yours into account. I'm interested to see how this next one is different from the first since I hadn't filled out my profile info last time.

  4. Hmmmm, good to know. I'll have to check it out and see! Thanks :)
