Burritos, Bowling, & Beer

{thrifted gap sweater | ON dress c/o (similar) | f21 necklace (similar) | fossil watch | steve madden boots}

So, believe it or not, this was my bowling outfit yesterday.  Some friends invited us for a couple games beginning at 9am.  Not one to pass up the opportunity to pay a measly $1.50 per game (a bargain!) for something as silly as getting to luxuriate in my soft, cushy bed until 10 on a Sunday morning and wake up feeling completely and utterly rested, I agreed to go.  Blame it on the early wake up time, but in my sleep-deprived mind this was a completely appropriate ensemble to be worn while wielding heavy balls, borrowing orthopedic-esque shoes, and bending over a bunch.  When I walked in and saw everyone else in jeans or sweatpants, I felt pretty out of place.  And to drive the matter home, I also ran into a friend who was wearing her workout gear under a tee shirt and sweats (in her defense, she was going kickboxing after her league game).  But when we went out for brunch after (well deserved I think, after bowling a personal best of 74 whole points), I felt right at home in this little getup.  There is no such thing as being too dressed up to eat a breakfast burrito while sucking down a Michelob Ultra Dragon Fruit Peach beer.

Come party here with me.

Lovely Lace

Lately I've found myself with a fixation on all things lace.  It's such a pretty and feminine fabric with unique patterns and a decidedly vintage vibe.  What can I say; I've been lusting over lace, drooling over doilies, and crushing on crochet.  Can we all just agree that we can learn a valuable lesson from knitting grannies everywhere?

    denim & stripes

    {target chambray & skirt (similar) | f21 belt | steve madden boots | UO necklace | diy hat (similar)}

    This outfit is sort of old news.  I wore it a few weeks ago, on Superbowl Sunday.  Not to watch the game, of course, but out to brunch with some friends.  The skirt with sneakily added leggings underneath was supremely comfy, and the belt around my waist was a constant reminder to try not to indulge in the gigantic cookie that my friend ordered at the end of the meal (yielding very little success).  And the hat?  Well, let's just say it was 20 degrees and windy - that thing wasn't coming off until well after I was already home, changed into pjs and an oversized hoodie, and snuggled under a blanket.  In other words, a typical Sunday evening for this fancy gal.

    Love & Taxes

    {borrowed dress (cute option) & necklace (similar) | target cardi (similar) | payless boots (so similar!)}

    This is what I wore on Valentine's Day.  Since we planned on having a low key night at home, I actually hadn't planned on getting out of my pjs at all (I really spoil my boyfriend). But then I remembered that I had a library book due.  So I tossed this dress on, topped it with something red because, you know, Valentine's Day, and off we strolled to return my book.  And just to make the evening really romantic, we picked up some 1040 forms on our way home.  Because nothing says love like getting an early start on your taxes.

    Love Is....

    ...when even after
    six whole years together
    your heart still skips a beat when you see his number pop up on your caller ID.
     Because you are still just that excited to talk to him.

    I can't even express how lucky I feel to have such a wonderful, loving, supportive boyfriend who I am also proud to call my best friend.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Finding Nemo

    {target jacket & leggings | alloy sweater (similar) | h&m scarf (similar) | kamik boots | f21 ring | diy turban}

    This weekend we were hit with Snowstorm Nemo (snow storms are getting names now? after Disney characters?  That's a thing?).  Anyway, the snow that got dumped on us only left my boyfriend and me trapped inside on Saturday, where we took turns suggesting things to do, like cooking lasagna cupcakes (my idea), drinking beer (his idea), putting on minty facial masks (my idea), and watching Total Recall (his idea).  Luckily by Sunday it was warm enough to emerge from the apartment to head straight to Target to snap up some Prabal Gurung pieces (more on those soon). 

    Yeah, my outfit is pretty basic, and in fact I just realized I've already worn it.  But some days just lend themselves to oversized sweaters, leggings, a 1920s-esque turban, and kicking snow at your boyfriend until he gently reminds you that it is your own beloved camera that you're showering in rapidly melting flakes.

    I'm joining the party.

    Bare Naked Ankles

    {h&m sweater (similar) | limited jeans | aldo booties (back in stock & on sale!) | f21 necklace}

    Wednesday's sunny, ankle-baring weather very much felt like a gift.  Like the kind of gift that if you got it in summer you'd ask for the receipt so you can run and return it because your day would be an insufferable, freezing 40 degrees, but if you got it yesterday you'd rejoice because your whole day got to be a sunny, toasty 40 degrees.  It's all about perception, really.  That and the ability to trade out legwarmers & knee highs for short ankle socks at least once during winter.

    Find me here, too.

    It's Groundhog Time

    {target button up (similar) & sweater | ON jeans | payless shoes (similar) | vintage necklace (similar)}

    Saturday was Groundhog Day.  And since in this household the holiday is more a celebration of Phil Connors than Punxsutawney Phil, I thought it only fitting to wear an outfit inspired by last year's (I briefly considered wearing the same thing until I realized that last year I was wearing shorts.  I am all for continuity and integrity when it comes to repeating oneself for the sake of a movie, but it was only 25 degrees and I'm not completely insane).
