I’ve moved!

May 28, 2012

After a very long dormant period, I’m taking another stab at this fashion blogging thing — but I’ve revamped my approach a bit.

You can now find me at dailydetritus.tumblr.com!


First day back after a lovely three-day Independence Day weekend!

  • Grey trouser-style linen shorts (Kohl’s clearance five years ago)
  • Red Mary-Jane heels (rescued from my roommate’s giveaway pile)

Wow, it’s been a whole month since I last posted! I apologize — the last few weeks of school were so busy that I either didn’t put any thought into my outfits or had too many other things to make blogging a priority, and then my family was on a cruise, and last week I started an internship. I’m going to try to do a better job of keeping up with this blog over the summer. You’ll be seeing mostly business-wear for the next five weeks, due to the internship thing, and I make no guarantees as to the cuteness of what I post. Pretty much all my office-appropriate things were snagged from Ross or Walmart because I was in a hurry and broke last summer when I first needed them, so making them look good will be a challenge, but blogging will give me good motivation to try to pull that off. So, here goes Day 1.

Weather: 60s and raining.

  • Black boyfriend cardigan (Target)
  • Pinstriped button-down blouse (Forever21)
  • Lace-trimmed cami (Charlotte Russe)
  • Black slacks, which look far more unflattering in this picture than they are due to angle at which my webcam has to be positioned to get a decent shot and due to the length of the cardigan (Burlington)
  • Patent flats (Steve Madden on clearance at DSW)
  • Accessory: clock locket — I’ve taken to calling it a “clocket” (vendor visiting my college campus)
