So many good puns for this coat….so little time.

You come for the clothes, stay for the dad jokes…am I right? ;)

p.s. Raise your hand if you think I look like a mature, grown-up Spinelli from Recess…yes, the cartoon character from the cartoon show that ran in the late-90s. Okay, so everyone…excellent! That’s basically all I could think about as I edited these photos. I’m the coolest.

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. This striped cardi coat might be the BEST piece that Old Navy has ever put out. So chic and perfect for layered looks now and in spring!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Love this wintery-chic look from Sarah (and all of her non-traditional traditions)!
  3. Navy trench coat of my dreams! It’s a little early, but can you blame me? ;)
  4. Athleisure was a word of the year for 2016, and I don’t see the trend stopping in 2017, so get a jump on how you can make it work for your own life (here). 
  5. You better believe that I will be buying this scallop hem skirt when the weather warms up! Pretty good price too, if you can grab it on sale!
  6. I don’t know if I have linked to this stripe peplum top before, but it is the perfect piece for the upcoming spring and summer seasons!
  7. 30 common shopping mistakes that we all make according to personal shoppers…trying to take these into the new year with me!
  8. These ankle boots have amazing review online, are on sale, available in most sizes, and come in two different colors…what more can you want?
  9. I’m really going to try to be more healthy in 2017 (me and my really creative New Year’s resolution, right), so I immediately pinned Liz’s 10 healthy recipes to help me get a good start on this goal!
  10. The Husband got me this weekender bag from Sole Society, and I love how much it holds and how expensive it looks!

I was thinking the other day how great of a title “Checkmate” would be for a post that featured my new favorite coat, so here we are.

But then I also got to thinking about how hilarious it was that a game like chess (known as the thinking man’s game) had a battle cry of “Checkmate,” which for those of you who aren’t familiar with the game means that your opponent has no other moves to save their king (which ends the game).

No other game that I can think of has anything like this. It’s basically like someone shooting the final basket of a basketball game and yelling “Booyah.” Or a soccer player scoring a goal and saying “Na-na-na-na-boo-boo.”

So much for a noble game.

Just some food for thought for your Monday before Christmas break. Checkmate, y’all.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Oh my gosh you guys, winter is here and it arrived very quickly in these parts. Pass me ALL the blankets and scarves…and blanket scarves.
  • Today is one of my favorite days of the year! The Husband and I always end up with extra vacation/sick days at the end of the year that we have to use or lose, so we now have a tradition to take a December Friday off together and go explore some new places in Indianapolis! We usually pick a new coffeeshop, new brewery/bar, new restaurant, and new museum to check out. It’s the best way to discover new places in your city!
  • And the rest of the weekend, we’ll be celebrating a dear friend’s wedding in Bloomington and trying to stay warm and cozy on our couch!
  • Also, not to panic you or anything, but it is only two more weeks til Christmas weekend! Ahhh!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?
