A Few Things

I didn't post yesterday because I was bogged down from going out of town over the weekend.
Looks like Leah and I both needed a getaway...just not together. Sad face.
I liked my outfit so much I thought I'd do a double post. Gotta love the buffalo check!
Ignore my face. Just look at the outfit.
All j.crew-shoes-gap. belt-madewell

today's outfit:
hello fingers. you need a manicure.
This was an awkward moment. A coworker, who could very well be reading this blog right now totally saw me in an awkward, cheesy moment of having my picture taken. It was so awkward I couldn't cover it up. So awkward (have I said it was awkward?) in fact, I couldn't get Lesley to keep the camera still to take a pic, and this is the best I got. I actually think it was this exact moment he saw me getting my picture taken. So now, the co-worker knows about the blog. He's using it as leverage against me. In a funny...but not so funny way.
I've read about it on several other blogs and I must ask-When IS the right time to come out of the blogging closet?

Double Dose

I flew into Dallas yesterday. Last night, I rode the light rail downtown with a friend and we met up with another friend and had a great time. I needed a quick OOTD pic, so in the middle of the bar she snapped one for me. I look horrible at this point, because I'd already been to work, flown to Dallas, been on the rail, and been at the bar for a couple hours. It's actually a maxi dress and I threw a top over it. I'm really into that sort of thing these days.

This morning, I made a quick trip to my favorite j.crew outlet store. Some people hate on the j.crew outlet for the quality, etc. I've never had a problem and the two personal shoppers who always help me there are absolutely awesome. I loaded up on some great spring threads, which I am sure you will see in coming weeks!

(top and shorts are both j.crew-shoes:toms)
This is actually what I wore to the store. It was kind of funny because I bought the top last time I was in and my PS commented on how cute my outfit was. She also mentioned that I should work in the store and then remembered I live 300 miles away from the nearest j.crew. Sad face.

Denial, it's not just a river in Egypt. I'm in denial that it's sunny...but not really that warm outside. I totally should have worn leggings today, but like I said...denial.

necklace: forever 21
belt: madewell (best belt i have ever owned!)

Can I just say for a quick second what made my day? Well, many things "made my day," but there was one moment in particular. I checked my personal email at work for a quick minute, and lo and behold-I won my first blog giveaway! I enter them all the time and always hope that one day I'll win! And I did! You can see the post here. Plus, if you don't read kindovermatter-it is awesome and inspirational!

name that decade

Has anyone ever heard of the show $%!@ My Dad Says? Okay, I've never seen it before, but I've heard about it. I should have a show and call it more appropriately "Stuff my students say..." Below are a few comments of the day on my outfit:

(circa 7:45 am) "Oh girl! Snap! You look you from the 70's!"
(circa 11:20) "Miss! You look like a Barbie Doll! I love Barbie dolls!"
(circa 2 pm) "Hey....miss...you look like old school today."

with my outfit today.
i feel like my cardi is
kind of stretched out and it's
really annoying me.
can i just whine in this post to you?
i already am?

miraculous monday

As in "It's a miracle I actually got out of bed this morning."
I can wear jeans and a t-shirt to work tomorrow...so you won't be seeing any of that...I'm thinking of it as a "clothing holiday."

when do you officially start to
transition from one season to another?
do you judge it by the weather
or the date on the calendar?
i have to say, come march 1st,
and you'll see my wardrobe start to change.
i'll still wear the occasional fall/winter
piece to move into spring, but i guess i'm
a date on the calendar kinda girl.

pants: gap

i love this new top.
it's great for winter and to move into spring.
stripes are HUGE right now.
everyone is wearing them, yo.

even though my sam's are suede, 
i can easily find ways to wear
them into spring.
they're too cute to put away until fall!

hope you had a great weekend.
let's do this, mondey.
