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

  1. This is not a drill…Target has gingham sneakers here! WANT.
  2. Blogger love of the week: Love this classic look from Rachel…and her glasses AND all her color “no-nos”. ;)
  3. This colorblocked tote might be my new favorite bag for spring!
  4. 20 of the most stunning drone photos taken in 2016! Some of these are downright gorgeous!
  5. Old Navy’s spring collection is looking like a direct copy of J.Crew (though WAY more affordable option), especially this outfit, which I want to wear immediately!
  6. This might be the prettiest top out there, thanks to the mix of polka dots and paisley…oh and my favorite color combination ever! It also comes in a scarf here…which might have to find a way to me soon!
  7. 10 books to read before they are turned into movies this year!
  8. These sandals won’t work here currently, but I bet I’ll be wearing them into the ground come spring/summer! They also come in 4 great/versatile color options!
  9. The best things to score on sale in January…you know, in case you have to stock up!
  10.  This is not an over exaggeration….I want EVERYTHING from Boden’s spring catalog (here). Blues, reds, nautical themes, and beautiful prints? SIGN. ME. UP!

Today’s highlights:

  • Has this week been the weirdest week for anyone else? I wasn’t actually convinced it was Friday…until I double checked my phone. I’ll take it, especially since this is my normal Friday off!
  • It is beyond FREEZING here in Indianapolis, so I’m spending most of the day curled up drinking coffee, snuggling under blankets, and obsessively playing this game (Stardew Valley for anyone interested) that my brother got me hooked on.
  • In sadder news, my great-grandmother passed away on Monday. We all knew it was coming eventually, as she was 97(!), but that doesn’t make it any less sad. She was a classy, sassy lady, and a huge Indiana sports fan. I’ll be wearing pearls this weekend and watching football (even though our dear Colts aren’t in the playoffs) in honor of her. Be sure to give your loved ones an extra hug today for me!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Checkmate

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.
