no pain, no gain.

LAMade tee, Marc by Marc Jacobs shorts, Steve Madden wedges, Aldo bag, Aerie scarf, Forever21 ring, American Eagle aviators, bangles from India

Thank goodness we got over our heat wave in Indiana -- the weather finally cooled down enough for me to rock long sleeves. I loved using bold jewelry -- my bestie brought these bangles back from India for me -- and a pretty scarf to brighten up this monochromatic ensamble (this pair of MJ shorts are one of my most prized possessions), though I will admit that perhaps my favorite four-and-a-half-inch wedges weren't the best choice for traipsing to classes up to a mile away. On the bright side, they seemed to extend my summer tan and I've never received so many compliments on my legs -- thankfully, everyone was polite enough to ignore the severe limp that crippled me all afternoon.






Hope you all have a weekend full of fall fun!
xo Josie

Josie. Seriously. This is perfection. I love each and every picture more than the last. Your shorts are beautiful (and legs for days - hel-lo!)

Even though the shoes may have caused a bit of pain (no pain no gain?) they were the ideal compliment to the outfit. Home run on this all the way!! The scarf is the icing on the cake...or is that the last picture which is beyond gorgeous!

Have a great weekend!

Oh Josie, I just love the outfit! It is so chic. I bet all of those students in class in sweats wish they had gotten up 5 minutes earlier. =)

You look great! I love how you added the scarf for a pop of color!

Valerie said...

What's a girl to do about the adorable heels that practically cripple us in the process? Your legs look so fabulous here, that I agree- beauty is pain. Haha. How sweet that your friend brought you back bracelets from India! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Josie!

Heather {A Measure Of...} said...

Love those wedges too! And you are amazing for being able to wear them! I am pretty much out of commission if I wear heels for more than 20 minutes (standing) and an hour (sitting).

Lovely weekend to you too!

I think this whole look is very put-together and chic. The shorts are really tailored and cute and the wedges do your legs good! I like to toss a pair of flip flops in my bag when I'm wearing heels and I have a long day ahead of me. Hope you had a good weekend, Josie!

Melanie said...

Love your monochromatic outfit. The teal pop in your scarf looks great!

Oh I thought wedges were meant to be comfortable, especially for heels? Though I suppose these not a lot of pretty shoes that are comfortable after excessive amounts of walking.
Nice gams. ;)
