Outfit / Mars Red | Pennies & Paper: Outfit / Mars Red


Outfit / Mars Red

Wednesday, August 19

These past few months, my life has been a whirlwind—I went from a summer internship to a full-time, salaried position in a different department of the same company (knocking something else off my Thirty Before Thirty!); I’m a bridesmaid in my roommates’ wedding next week, which is states away from Boston; and I’m moving out of my apartment and back home. Add in a ton of summer events, another Cape trip last weekend, and going through my to-try list of bars and restaurants…I’ve been booked solid.

With all of the craziness, versatile clothing pieces are invaluable. Last year I found these red-orange capris at TJ Maxx and couldn't say no. This summer they’ve been a staple: I've worn them to a Dave Matthews Band concert, several Fridays at work, and on chillier summer evenings.

While I often wear these with work shirts and shoes, this particular outfit is much more casual. Is anyone else a Veronica Mars fan? I adore the show so much that I donated to the kickstarter for the 2014 movie--hence this shirt! (If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend the show for teens, young adults, and adults who like superhero-strong characters combined with a helping of noir.)

Continuing loosely on the "Mars" theme...everyone should read The Martian. Now.

  1. Love that color red! I've been wearing red a lot this summer. Congrats on getting a full-time job!

  2. I definitely empathize with the busy summer thing: I feel like I've been going nonstop (in a good way), but that does tend to mean I need some trusty pieces I can be comfortable and throw on anytime. Mine tend to be cute tops and denim shorts.
    I have a pair of jeans just like this and they're great.
    PS your hair is adorable

  3. Congrats on the full time position!
    Love colored pants -- red is so much fun :)
