One: This skirt from Ann Taylor Loft is amazing. It was a bigger portion of my March budget (see here), but I had to have it. I know most of us have a few black skirts hanging in our closet, but the scallop hem makes it so very sweet. It helps add a dainty feel to whatever you pair it with. I’m in love.

Two: Stripes make everything better. I think I’m going to start a line of art prints, bumper stickers, and t-shirts with this saying. Any buyers? ;)

Three: Please ignore my awesome battle scars from saving my legs. I promise I’m 26, not 13 and just learning how to shave.

Ahhh! It’s real life wedding “weekend” time. I’m now off of work now and off to pick up baby brother, R, soon from the airport! It’s wedding prep full speed, even though I think I’m in a really good place prep-wise (though I still have to vacuum the whole dang house…a good housewife, I will not be!).

Thank you all for your sweet well wishes! It really means the world to me, and I’m in love with the blogging community and all my wonderful readers. I’m planning on blogging up to the day of and should be posting pretty regularly (scheduled posts) afterwards! I hope you’ll stick around to see what’s coming up! I’m excited for the future! :)

It monsooned here in Indiana yesterday, so this photo is from last week (I was planning on using it next week while I was gone for my honeymoon). Just so you don’t get confused about 1.) why I am in jeans, and 2.) why I don’t look like a wet rat.

I love this blazer so much, and the red and navy seems to work with a bunch of other colors. Here are some other ways I have worn it: here and here.

What other colors would you wear with it?

  • On Target item: Merona Oxford Blazer (Fall/Winter 2013; not plaid, but similar styles: similar 1; similar 2)
  • Buttondown: New York and Company (super old; similar 1; similar 2)
  • Necklace: Etsy (exact – Princess Bride saying on the other side)
  • Belt: Target (old; similar 1; similar 2)
  • Jeans: Denizen, Target (exact – tall and short styles online too!)
  • Heels: St. John’s Bay, JCPenney (old; similar 1 and similar 2)

Nothing says spring like bright white Toms and a perfect graphic sweatshirt. The weather is still on the cooler side in the mornings here, so this was perfect for today’s activities!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Coffee, coffee, coffee
  • Sleeping in on a rainy morning
  • Day off from work
  • Marriage license in hand (one week and one day)!
  • Lunch out with The Fiance
  • Bike sweatshirts
  • Survivor (the best longest running show ever!) – yes I am a nerd
  • Grilling dinner is back!
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Rain, dreary rain

Happy weekend, friends! Enjoy yours while I frantically try to find a wedding hairstyle? Help?

  • Belt: Target (old; similar 1; similar 2)

Isn’t this flat wearing weather awesome? I love breaking out my flats after a long, dreadful winter (which apparently isn’t over yet, my hometown got 2 inches of snow yesterday after having a 60 degree day Monday). Midwest weather is crazy right now, but I’ll take the 60 degree weather we’re getting here in Indianapolis.

On Monday, The Fiance and I got to take a long bike ride to a favorite Mexican restaurant, and it was glorious. Exactly what cures the Monday blues for me: bikes, open road, fresh air, and guacamole (always guacamole). But it’s Wednesday now, so let’s boycott the Monday blues until next week okay? What do you do to cure the Monday blues?!

ps. Yes, my butt is still sore from riding the bike. Thank you for asking!
