Selfies taken with a mirror and a timer app in anticipation of losing my TAs. Sniff.

I have always been an admirer of Sally over at Already Pretty.

But now, I think I’ve graduated to fangirl status. And all because of her Thirty Pretty Projects, which will be the theme for the next month. You know it’s serious when I’ve actually spent money (yeah, a whole five bucks!) on something sight unseen.

And because I’m a masochist – or perhaps just a lover of surprises – I won’t even sneak a peek at the end. I’m going to take each challenge day by day. (Okay, who am I kidding? Week by week is more like it – I like to see my work outfits all lined up in a row.)

Today, we start off with highlighting an aspect of my figure that I LOVE. And hand’s down, we all know it’s gotta be my legs. It was a toss-up on how to showcase them, though. Pencil skirt or skinnies? I guess we know what won out.

Perhaps it’s wishful thinking on my part that we’d actually have an early fall, complete with cooler weather and all. Or perhaps I’m still in the throes of rocker chic-dom. Regardless of reason, I am really digging the red plaid/black combo I’ve got going on.

The pattern of the pants really draws attention to my legs, and book-ending this with black top and shoes just contributes to the emphasizing. A new silver bauble from NY&Co. completes my Monday look.

Red plaid, black and silver accessories – these are a few of my favorite things.

:: Just the facts, ma’am ::

P.S. What is it with Mondays and really bad lighting?! Argh. Pardon the pictures. We’ll try for better tomorrow…
