wearing.


enjoying 66 degrees in JCrew top, Target skirt, Born boots 


On this day:

>> The fog cleared and the sun shone it's glorious self!
>> I lunched with Husband.  Turkey Club.  Is there anything better than bacon in a sandwich?
>> I made sloppy joe's from scratch.  You should totally smell my house right now.
>> I am learning how to enjoy the post-workout hair I have been experiencing.  Ick.
>> I am wearing a skirt.  A SKIRT, PEOPLE!  Take that, January.

P.S. I saw the above skirt at Target, only two left not in my size.  Talk about sad.  It hurt me deeply, but I left the display rack and moved onto the workout clothing.  I'm pretty strong like that.  I started looking at a rack of yoga pants and GUESS WHAT???  Hidden in the back of the pants... was THE SKIRT.  ALL ALONE.  IN MY SIZE.  I think someone was hiding it for me.  So I snatched it right up, with a big smile on my face, of course.  I think I was being rewarded for working hard at the gym and looking at workout gear.  That's sometimes how random my justifications can be.  Don't even try to judge me here, because I KNOW you tell yourself the same kind of weird stuff so you feel good about spending money.  :)  Did I say weird?  I think I meant creative.

  5. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR....cutest outfit I have ever seen. If my hubby were home I would go to Target right this very second and buy that skirt....but since waking 3 kids is not an option, I will keep my fingers crossed it will still be there tomorrow. Dang it, I was just at Tarzhay and was trying to be all "good" and telling myself, "you don't need any clothes." yada yada yada...last time I do that. Seriously I'm so mad I'm gonna pour myself a glass of vino...

  12. Haha, I definitely convince myself of things like that! Like at Old Navy, if I ever find something on sale, I take it to the check-out and it usually turns out to be even cheaper than I thought! I convince myself that it is my reward for shopping sale sections :)

    Oh, and I LOVE the chevron and polka dots together!

  13. I always say when I see one last piece of clothing in my size, all by itself, it was meant to be :-) I love the pairing of dots and chevron! Great colors too!

  20. i love the skirt! i tried it on in jade green and it looked horrible, but i think i know why now - i was wearing it wrong! i tried wearing it on my hips, like jeans, but i love how you wore it higher on your waist - so much better!

  21. Love this entire outfit. Polka dots are my favorite! Can't believe I didn't see the skirt at Target either!

  23. What a great story about acquiring this skirt! DAng! Now I'm going to have to run to Target and score one for myself! Love how you paired it with the polka dots, definitely a great combo.

    Stopping by from the link up! Happy Friday!

  24. Ooooh, serendipity! That gorgeous skirt was meant to be yours and yours alone. Chevron stripes are right on trend right now. You must have known I was coming to visit, because I am devoted to polka dots. You've paired the two patterns brilliantly.

    On another note, I see you're originally from Washington state. I'm from the PNW area, and applaud you for being able to make such a big move.
