Grey jeans and sailor pants

So as I have mentioned in previous posts, I am supposed to follow a certain dress code at school. Honestly, it's not that bad and for the most part, I like dressing up. But every once in a while, I just want to wear jeans. We can wear jeans on Fridays and we pay a dollar which gets donated to a charity each month. Today, however, was not Friday. So I try and find ways around it by wearing some variation of jeans whenever I can. Today was one of those days. I have this great pair of skinny grey jeans that I have worn in previous posts and I just love them. They are from Pac Sun and were among my first pair of skinny jeans a few years ago. Honestly, I had forgotten about them until I saw a pic of myself on a friend's facebook and I was wearing them. So I dug them out and have been loving them (again) ever since. When I was in the library at school today, fighting with the photocopier (I lost) I poked my head into my friend's office to tell her something. She said, "Oh, good, you have jeans on!" I laughed and replied, "They're grey pants." She stood up and said, "Well, mine are sailor pants." Needless to say, we were both wearing jeans. I guess it was just one of those days for her too!

Tonight I am relaxing with Damien and the kitties. It feels nice to be home and not at some meeting. He finished the Halloween invitations today so I am posting them too. Anyone who lives in the area, feel free to come on by to the party. We'd love to have you!!! (Just uploaded the invites and for whatever reason, the second one is coming out blue. It doesn't really look like that but we kind of liked it, so here it is).

  3. Your party sounds AMAZING!

    And how much do I love you can still wear your wedding headband. Fantastic!

  4. Sounds like a great party! Regarding your question about my necklace, unfortunately it was something I bought from H&M last fall in Chicago. I looked for it at other stores but I think it was one of those once in a lifetime finds. maybe EBay?

  5. uggh, I hate dress codes. I have the same problem at work. But it makes you appreciate being creative with your wardrobe outside, no? I love those lavender jeans!

  6. i need a pair of gray skinnies. loving that plaid on you!
