blazer: thrifted // dress: Gap // boots: Macys

I confess that...

- I don't wash my hair every day... or even every other day. I use baby powder to combat the greasies and sometimes I forget to comb it out and I walk outside with it in my hair... which is embarrassing.

- I do my makeup on the bus on my way into work a lot of days. I've gotten pretty good.

- I snooze my alarm every.single.morning because I'm super lazy. And I love sleep.

- my dog sleeps on our bed nearly every night even though I make a big deal complaining about it... I really don't mind all that much.

- I am a big online window shopper and catalog shopper but rarely buy anything. There was this game my friend and I used to play growing up where you had to pick something from each page of the catalog -- even if everything on the page was hideous. Or if everything was super lovely. It's a good game; I recommend it.

- sometimes when I post an outfit post, it's not really what I wore. I mean I wore it, but it was hidden under three coats or something. Except for today. I really wore that... just that... no layers of coats.

- when I titled this post "confessions" all I could think about was Usher... and that song. 

what do you confess?

xo, erika


  1. i confess that i am totally jealous of your cute outfit. :)

    and i don't wash my hair everyday either. dry shampoo has become my new bff.

  2. We had a snow storm this weekend so my "outfit" was buried under layers of coats and stuff!

    I am jealous of your non hair washing. I CANNOT deal with my hair feeling greasy. It gives me a headache.

  3. i love this outfit...and this post completely. I agree with pretty much everything on your list here!

  4. i LOVE this outfit!! and I press snooze and never buy anything online either. : )

  5. cute dress! I love it :)
    I often don't wear an outfit the same day I post it...it all depends on when the weather is decent enough for photos you know. I confess I like what I wore posts more than I let on!

  6. Love this post! So glad I'm not the only one on pretty much all of these. I must try baby powder for my hair, and a comb!

  7. I confess that I love these!!

  8. I love this outfit + your confessions. I wish I didn't have to wash my hair every day, but it gets super greasy if I don't which in turn makes me very grumpy! I also love to sleep in and that alarm waking me up every morning does not make me a happy girl!!
    PS I watched the first episode of Downton Abbey last night and I LOVE it!! I can't wait to watch another episode tonight!! Thanks so much for recommending it!! xoxo

  9. I do that baby powder trick to LOL AMAZING right??

  10. I wash my hair maybe twice a week. Gross, I know - but I work from home and my hair looks best the third day after a shower :).

    Love your dress!

  11. Oh, and I buy WAY too much online. I have an online shopping problem.

  12. I am totally going to play that catalog game...

  13. LOVE that dress! Super cute. And so are you!

  14. I snooze alarm all the time too...and sometimes I post blog pics from the day (or two) earlier :D

    LOVE this outfit, one of my favs I've seen you in. It's such a flattering dress and the stripes are so classic...plus those boots and jacket style it just perfectly.

  15. i confess that i played that catalog game when i was younger too!!

  16. The blazer with the dress is sooo perfect. Love your confessions.

    I confess that I definitely should have found your blog wayyyy before now, because I am currently overwhelmed by cuteness.

    I hope you have a great wednesday!

  17. I confess that I love fashion but reach for flip flops, Jeans, and a T-shirt everyday. Yea I'm lazy.

  18. I confess, I love that dress and may or may not be searching Gap for it right this second!!

    You look adorable!

  19. I confess...
    I am really thankful for our friendship.
    I don't even wash my hair after working out (thankfully, my hair doesn't get greasy).
    Even tho I claim to only love really healthy food, I buy ice cream every weekend!
    Sunshine does make me happy, but waking up to pouring rain this morning made my day!
    I still enjoy listening to music that I listened too when I was 8.

  21. I too am a big online shopper, but never buy anything! My mom and I both find it fun to even add things to our carts but never buy the things!

  22. You are too gorgeous! I love the lip color! And your confessions :)

  23. I used to play that game as a kid--I loved catalogues when I was younger and I can still spend far too long flicking through them.

  24. You're so cute! I love your confessions. I also hit the snooze everyday. I love to sleep! I also am a big online window shopper. It's so fun to browse, and I love to shop for deals and steals. :)
