Hi.

I'm Caitlin Israel, a twenty-something midwesterner with a penchant for neutrals, donuts, and makeup.
Thanks for reading!

Let the challenge begin with…new glasses! And this time, they are real glasses, not like the fake ones I wore here. I am as blind as a bat, and I’ve been wearing glasses/contacts since - let’s just say I don’t remember the last time I was able to see something clearly (try second grade). Maybe Lasik surgery is in my future. Here’s the breakdown:

Plaid Button-Up: Garage sale
Sweater: Garage sale (Ann Taylor LOFT)
Jeans: Garage sale (H&M)
Flats: Old Navy
Necklace: Gift
Ring: Banana Republic
Bag: Garage sale (Coach)

If you couldn’t tell from the awkward poses in the pictures today, it was super, super cold and super, super windy out today; that was my attempt to stay somewhat warm during the 2-minute photoshoot. I knew I’d be going to get my glasses today, so I wanted to do something verging on nerd but still chic. I dub this outfit nerd chic

I can already tell I’m going to learn the true meaning of layers during this challenge, so I figured I’d get a head start on the lesson by layering my plaid button-up with my sweater. Add a necklace my mom gave me last year, which I thought was great with the colors, and I’ve got the perfect schoolgirl outfit.
