Trench Coat Season

trench coat + Target stripe tee + Michael Kors purse + Loft jeans; Style On Target; spring casual outfit

Today’s fun highlights:

  • This might be an old photo (full post here – prepping outfit photos before a winter vacation is not one of my strong suits), but it is exactly what I am actually wearing today! Hard to believe that it is trench weather here in Indiana during the month of February!
  • We had a wonderful vacation to Texas! The weather was picture perfect, all the food we ate was delicious, and we got to see all of the sites we wanted to see (more to come in future travel diary posts)!
  • The highlight of the trip for me was seeing Nicole from Writes Like a Girl! I loved her online personality and presence (not to mention her wonderful writing), and if possible, she is even better in person! She’s also responsible for 90% of the amazing food locations we visited. So lovely to meet you, Nicole…and if you or Dago ever find yourselves in Indy, let us know! <3
  • This weekend, we’re celebrating some birthdays over here (my mom and my grandma) and doing some major cleaning up. We were hoping to do some outdoor activities, because we kept hearing how great the weather was in Indiana while we were gone, but it apparently has a taken a turn for the colder since we came back. Major bummer, y’all!

Cool on Classics

Today’s fun highlights:

  • I’m not sure about the proportion element of this outfit, but I’m posting it anyways, because I love the mix of these classic items for a cool street style look.
  • I’m also not sure how I feel about the results of the election. I’m now at the point where I am accepting them and am cautiously hopeful about the future and the goodness of the general population of America.
  • But believe me, Wednesday was ROUGH. I called my mom bawling during my lunch hour, because I needed an adult to tell me things would be okay. And then I browsed J.Crew at the mall and didn’t buy a single thing!
  • I still believe in the goodness of people, and I still believe that love will prevail. And that’s the last you’ll hear from me about the election. The future is waiting to see what we do next. Let’s get to it.
  • In other (much more light hearted news), one of my best friend’s birthdays is today! Happy last-birthday-in-your-20s, B! We’re spending our weekend in Bloomington, IN this weekend celebrating her and The Husband (who has his own birthday on Sunday….happy early birthday, Love!)! I can’t wait to be back in some of my favorite places with some of my favorite people. Cheers to that!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Okay, confession…I actually have a four-day weekend. It’s okay to hate me.
  • And yes, I totally want you to read the title as a rhyme…I know that means you have to pronounce weekend as week-OND, but it’s fun. I promise. ;)
  • Guess who conned their mom into coming down today to help me replant our front yard flower bed? This girl!! She got all the green thumb genes in this family and somehow managed to pass down NONE to me. This is her payback. ;) #thanksSchmom
  • This week’s date night was our first time out at Ralston’s Drafthouse, and if you’re an Hoosier that likes seafood, you have to go sometime and try their crab and spinach dip! So good!
  • This weekend we’re staying put in Indianapolis after all our traveling in May. We have a few home projects we need to get done, and then we’ll be trying some new places and activities. Our super-cool art museum has a really unique mini golf course right now, and I definitely want to check that out!
  • Onto the sales, because Memorial Day sales are usually some of the best of the year, and you know I’ll be ordering some things!

Navy Swan

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You know, like Black Swan, but not as intense, no ballet, and with me, instead of Natalie Portman. Downgrade or upgrade, you decide! ;)
  • This week in our date night adventures, we celebrated our second wedding anniversary…and The Husband ate the best looking onion rings in front of me, while I chose to enjoy a grilled chicken, salad, and fruit cup. I know, I know. I did this to myself.
  • But I made it to Whole30 Day #13 today! Success. Nearly half way through, and I’m feeling pretty good. I still would like a million homemade chocolate chip cookies, and I think I might eating too much dried fruit. #whoops
  • This weekend, The Husband is leaving me to go celebrate a friend’s birthday with beers and brewery food (read: more onion rings)! I’m staying home and catching up on blog reading (and writing my own…), drinking too much coffee, and taking Cooper on a ton of walks, since it is supposed to be BEAUTIFUL here after being sucky for so long!

All About Those Prints

I can’t resist a little print mixing every once in awhile (see here, here, and here for past examples), and we all know that stripes and polka dots are best friends, right?

If not, let me introduce you to the new cheese and crackers, the new bread and butter, and the new peanut butter and chocolate (way better than jelly, right?)….stripes and polka dots! They may seem like complete opposites, but if you find some like colors (navy and white in this outfit), you may just have a perfect match! It takes some playing around, so the next time you’re folding laundry, trying putting prints next to each other and see if you can find a combination that you love…and then wear it out with pattern mixing pride!

Also, is anyone else hungry right now after all that food talk? I’m off to grab a snack while you enjoy mixing and matching all those prints!
