What’s up 57 degree weather? Nice to meet you. You make for a fine opportunity for a dog walk with iced coffee. Someone remind me to not take my blog photos with a hat and shades again. It makes me look like I’m either 1.) a super shady individual or 2.) Burt Macklin, FBI agent (Parks and Rec anyone?).

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Seeing this hat on Merrick (from Merrick’s Art, she’s amazing) and running to your local Target an hour later and finding it on clearance
  • The embellished sweatshirt I’m wearing above (I’m going to wear mine into the ground…today’s look was casual, but I have a post coming Monday with it dressed up…get excited!)
  • Chicken curry salad + pretzel rolls from Whole Foods
  • Vegan (no sugar added) chocolate chip cookies from Whole Foods (I’m not vegan, but these are the BEST ever)
  • Warm weather and puppy walks
  • Dressing room try-ons for Instagram (gotta follow me here for these)
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Sad news from a friend
  • Said friend being too far away to hug

Have a lovely weekend everyone! We’re off to Turkey Run State Park tomorrow to hang out with The Fiance’s parents! Hiking, here we come!


  • On Target item: Xhilaration Embellished Sweatshirt (exact – $8 guys)
  • Hat: Target (exact)
  • Shades: Old Navy (super old; similar)
  • Jeans: Denizen, Target (exact – tall and short styles online too!)
  • Sneakers: C9 by Champion (exact – from the men’s dept.; don’t judge me ;) )

  • I wish it was 57 here! It only reached 40 degrees. So sad. Anyway, I love that sweater! Love the Parks and Rec reference! :)

    • Maybe you’ll get the awesome weather today, Sara?! And Parks and Rec is the best. Amy Poehler is so great.

  • Meghan Hayes

    I love the sweatshirt! So much! And I like the hat and shades, but I see where you’re coming from. :)
