i’m wearing: h&m tribal print dress (last year), collective concepts cropped blazer thanks to tog & porter, star ling cork heels (old), various bracelets and target necklace.

remember how i told you guys that i swore i would never wear blazers again after i quit my job to be a SAHM? well, i lied. after tog & porter sent me this one, i have gone on a blazer shopping spree. i kinda like how this cropped blazer breaks up an otherwise large amount of printed material. and the best part about maxi dresses…no spanx! =) hallelujah for spanx though. who’s with me?

    First of all, you look gorgeous in these photos and I want your hair. Second, I totally agree that Spanx is like the best thing ever invented for women (maybe second only to the push-up bra). Was just debating if I want to wear mine for FABB – I need all the help I can get, but 12 hours is a looooong time!

    Funny how you won’t wear certain things because of your past. I think you have some issues Jenn. LOL

    Loving that dress!! I want! πŸ™‚ The print is so fun and noticeable. Also, loving that blazer. I need to invest in a few more in Spring colors. They’re perfect to wear with just about anything. Also, couldn’t agree with you more about Spanx. Lifesaver to all women!
