Camel + Red

Being the mayor of anything on Foursquare means nothing.
Truly. Nothing.
It's not even worth it for bragging rights, because let me tell you - you will just get made fun of if you brag about being a Foursquare mayor.

Yet, I was outraged when I got an email today saying that I had been ousted as the mayor of TJ Maxx. Yes, it is immensely important to me that I be the fictional mayor of TJ Maxx. NO ONE can shop there more than me.  Now I have to check in two more times and reclaim my title, so I can resume being the Foursquare mayor of my TJ Maxx. (And for the record, the boots, the bag, and the belt are all TJX finds.)

You must have an awesome TJ Maxx near you, because whenever I go to my TJ Maxx it just looks horribly picked over and is full of unflattering things like cropped tops and velour sweatpants. Maybe I'm going there on the wrong days.

Well.. let me give an official address to the Mayor of TJ Maxx.. you most certainly deserve the position!! Those red pants are traffic stoppers alright.. I love them!! so vibrant and fun.. and they look so great on you. I love how you paired them with camel... very nice combo.. you are the queen of fashion my girl!! xoxo J

Haha gotta love TJ Maxx! You always have such amazing finds! Perhaps I'll go there this weekend...I need to find a Christmas present for my mom and brother...
My phone is from the stone age so I can't use foursquare, hahaha.....I should really buy an iPhone, but I'm cheap and I'd rather buy shoes with that money ;)

ohhhh the perfect colors for the season! and i can't imagine someone being the mayor other than you! :D

Whatttt you still have leaves? Don't even talk to me. I've been wanting to do this exact outfit formulation for the longest time-- neutral top + bold bottom. Except I don't have any neutral tops, so...

I wish I had a good T.J. Maxx, mine isn't. But at least Marshalls is. It'd be nicer if both were good though.

Wait, do you have triple leopard going on right now? Awesome.

Your pictures are sooo beautiful. I am going to purchase a tripod this weekend and start experimenting with posting pictures on my blog. You take outrageous outdoor pics. Do you have any advice for taking indoor pics? Or is that too broad a question? Do you need photoshop, Gimp, Piknik, I was even told to check out the Walmart site....I have no clue what I am doing. I need a basic photo class that does not start until Spring.

I'm out of town right now visiting a place I've never been before. I spotted a TJ Maxx this afternoon so I'm heading there tomorrow to see what they have. Wish me luck! Hope it's a good one :)

You'll always be the Queen Bee of TJMaxx to me! I love your red and camel mashup here. Great sweater and still loving the fedora!

The Fancy Teacup said...

Oh my gosh, the foursquare thing made me laugh! Hope you get to reclaim your title. Can't get enough of those super hot pants!

Fashionistagirl said...

Love the outfit!

eek said...

LOL - I didn't realize foursquare had mayors! I used to love to go to TJs, Ross, Marshalls, etc, but now I just don't have the time or patience for it. Sometimes I will pop in to look at the shoes, but usually all that stuff just annoys me for some reason.

I love your color combination here.

Style Journey said...

You must have a great TJ Maxx because ours is horrible. It's just such a disaster whenerver we go in there.

Love the red with camel and of course the leopard belt!

Courtney Erin said...

I'm a little outraged on your behalf. But I also adore that camel and red combo and it's soothing my anger.

TJ Maxx in my area doesn't have very good stuff, so I am a little jealous of people who live near better stores.

Lorena said...

This is funny.
I WAS the mayor for my apartment building, my office, the salon I go to.... and then I realized that it meant nothing so I just quit. Now that I think of it I MIGHT still be the mayor at the salon but I just deleted the app from my phone.
Go CLAIM that mayorship - do it in the name of all of us overthrown mayors !
BTW I really like this combo :)

Nic said...

lol! i love this one too. the hat especially; so cute!

That second photo may be my all time favorite photo of you that I've seen. Your hair looks so LONG in it!
I just joined 4square, about 100 years after everyone else. It's fun!

MOUSEVOX VINTAGE said...

haha! i don't use foursquare, i'm seriously one of those competitive types who would get into it and feel the need to reclaim my title. looks like you're back on the mayoral track in a very stylish way!

Red, Camel and Leopard the best pieces to have in an outfit. Of course you pull it off so easy.

Once again I need that hat in my life very soon!
