More Snow, Less Fun

Don’t worry folks, just when The Fiancé and I had finished shoveling off the driveway for the weekend, we got more snow last night! Lame. Winter is the worst. Luckily, I had a nice weekend eating brunch and wings and brownies (ahh the life), snuggling with the puppy, and going to Lucas Oil Stadium to watch my Colts win! No outfit post yesterday, since I wore my Colts jersey and Saturday’s long black cardigan all day.

Today marks the beginning of a great two weeks. It is jeans for the rest of the year at my work, and I have a 2.5 day work week this week, followed by a 1.5 day work week next week. Lucky ducky, indeed. So get ready to see more casual looks (while still appearing business casual + jeans). I love this blazer (along with the rest of my “collection” of Merona’s oxford blazers), and thought it might work well with a yellow shirt, since it has a faint yellow/gold stripe in the plaid. I think it did work out extremely well, even though it is a lot of color/texture in one look. The jeans and the neutral ankle boots balance this out well.

ps. I broke my no-shopping ban. 14 days strong, only to be broken by a ridiculous sale at Old Navy. Gasp! However, I justified it with a friend, and I’m feeling okay about it. I ended up buying the long Old Navy cardigan (previously seen here in black) in gray and white and then the Honeycomb Knit sweater (seen here) in mint (to make the minimal amount for free shipping). I knew I would have bought them after Christmas as good staples, and I didn’t want to miss the ridiculous savings that were going on this weekend. Please forgive me in this difficult time. I am planning on joining a shopping budget group in January. Stay tuned!
