Fancy Pants: 1 of 4

I have a goal.

Including the past weekend and Christmas, there are 6 weekends.  I want to dress up for at least four of them.  I have so many fun outfits, and pretty clothes, that I never think to pull out.  My work clothes are designed for comfort, and I end up pulling on jeans on the weekends.  It's time to refresh my wardrobe, and get my classy on!

This past weekend, Jordan and I went to see our friend, Adam, accompany a barbershop quartet performance.  A lot of my outfits for the next 6 weeks are going to be thanks to Adam - as a professional pianist, he has several holiday performances.  It was a fun time, made even more fun by the fact it was free!

Adam, doing his thing.

Fancy drinks at the fancy Pfister after the show.

and my outfit!

Sweater:  hand-me-down
Skirt:  Forever 21
Tights:  JC Penny
Heels:  Target
Necklace:  thrifted
Nails:  can't really see them, but yellow!


  1. What a great goal! Sounds like fun :)

  2. Getting fancied up is indeed a fun goal to have. I'm in love with your heels and you've convinced me it is time to pull out my patterned tights... it's just been too darn warm. (crazy, I know) But wait, I'm not done complimenting you yet. I am also really enjoying your adorable up 'do. Very chic.

    Now, where does one get a vest like the one your friend is wearing in the top picture? That, my dear, is fantastically fancy pants. ;)

  3. such fun! i've been longing for an excuse to REALLY dress up (as in, gala-level fancy), which i imagine i'll get at new year's and touro's winter ball, but those in-between of fancy-normal-occasions are great too. =) i really like your sweater -- lovely color!

  4. Oh my goodness, you're going to have too much fun with this goal. I really like the outfit your put together, and I can't wait to see what else you have in store!

  5. You are lovely! I can't wait to see more photos of the dressing up/fanciness!

  6. You look so cute! I love dressing up now and again. X

  7. aw. yay for dressing up!
    you're doing awesome. keep up the good work!

  8. Very chic, Charlotte! I need to dress up more too. Even if it's just to stay at home with the kids...hehe

  9. What a neat goal! Free and fancy is always good in my book. Tonight Sean and I are going to a free photography exhibit where they'll be serving free drinks (woo)! I'm going straight after work so I can't dress up that much, but I'll at least have nice pants and I'll try to wear a fancier top than usual. Now hopefully we can actually get into the event without getting stuck in a line...

    PS. Of course I love your outfit! Those tights and shoes are super hot!
