Early Out and About

My first week at the radio station has come to an end. An unexpectedly quick end. My manager dismissed my newly hired coworker and I before noon so our weekend got started nice and early!

For my last day of my first week, I wore the tan trousers I wore on Wednesday and paired them with a simple white t and my new, royal blue, cropped jacket.

The jacket was purchased last weekend at Ross, on clearance, for $8.49. It’s by HAVE. (? I have never heard of them…)

I broke out the LV Speedy 25 since I’ve been switching up bags more frequently than usual this week. Go big or go home right?

I havent worn these red polka-dot shoes by Guess in a very long time because of the pointed toe (which I havent really been “feeling” over the last several years) but I think with the loose-fit and wide cut trousers, the pointed toes look pretty good.

I opted for the high, loose, messy bun with the thin headband for my hair again today.

I wore a funky little key pin on my jacket for fun. The key was part of a set that I bought a couple of months ago when I made some necklaces using an identical pin.

I also accessorized with pearls and my usual jingle. Also, my watch and my claddagh ring and my silver ring with the (native american) turquoise bear claw on it.

It was so nice to get home early and spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing (and blogging!)

Thanks for reading! I hope I can keep up with my Daily Threads the way I’ve always wanted to! I suppose we shall see with time.

Thanks again! Love, GK

This was one of the photos I was rejecting but I think my little Doodle-Bear, Jack Daniels, looks so adorable. He was curious about what I was doing home so early and why I was ignoring him while taking my photos.


Kisses and Bows

Kind of a grey day; my clothes, not the weather. This morning when I walked out to my car I was thrilled to feel the cool autumn breeze. Unfortunately, the taste of fall was entirely too short lived and it go too ef’ing hot by midday.

The flouncy top is Julie’s Closet. I got it at Ross for $8.99. The pattern is black and white stripes with red bows and it’s too thin to wear without a cami.

The grey trousers are identical to the tan ones I wore yesterday (other than in color). I haven’t used this bag in years so I figured I’d give it a day out.

My ugly black shoes.

I also love the bow “tie” at the neckline of the shirt.
I knew the red lips shades would be perfect with the red bows.

White, bumble bee Coach purse.

Black and silver peacock earrings. Bright red polish.

Messy, high bun with a thin headband.

and there you have it. Another day of Daily Threads and my 4th day at the new job complete. I’ve come to two conclusions after posting the last several days: 1.) I need to touch up my makeup after work. 2.) I need to find better places to shoot the pictures for my daily threads.

Oh! Today was quite an exciting day at work. I recorded 8 commercials for 3 clients today to be run on our station over the next few weeks (and months)! Kind of neat… I’m stoked about it.

Thanks for reading. Love, GK

Green on the Scene

Despite the high temperatures throughout the day, I wore my new, shamrock green cardigan. I just want to experience fall so bad! I want “cold” weather! (Plus, I look awesome in green.)

Worn with a pair of tan trousers, I layered the cardigan over a crisp, white cami. The bag is by Bueno.

To sass up the very simple, work-appropriate outfit, I wore my brand new leopard print loafers by Bongo ($15).

I got owls on my chainz!

The cardigan, that I bought at Marshall’s for $19.99, is by Cable & Gauge.

After work, I traded the trousers for jeans before heading out to meet up with my favorite friends for an evening of delicious food and love.
