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

  1. A black and white flare stripe skirt? Say no more…I’m there!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Can’t get enough of Nicole’s print mixing combo (stripes and florals were just mean to be) and how cheerful and bright her outfit is! Enough to shake off those winter blues!
  3. These pom-pom flats are so fun, vivid, and bright (especially in person)…perfect for getting you out of a winter funk.
  4. After last week and the extreme changes to the welcoming, diverse America that I thought I knew, I was looking for some small ways to channel my energy in a positive way….so I’m loving this list of 10 small ways to protest. Join me?
  5. A cardigan for all my bow-loving ladies! It’s like Kate Spade….for way, way, less!
  6. Loft, pleeeeeease stop with the new arrivals (even more dropped this weekend – check them out here), you’re killing me and my budget planning! This yellow lace skirt is already on its way to me. Fingers crossed that I hate it! ;)
  7. My dreams came true guys…foxes and dogs CAN be best friends! True life The Fox and The Hound over here. 
  8. A good navy bag is hard to find…which is we all need this little affordable number. 
  9. This embroidery might have been the prettiest, quaintest thing I saw all of last week. The skill! The beauty! The patience! The cuteness!
  10. An adorable nautical skirt that you know Kate Middleton would love…yes, please!

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

  1. This striped raincoat is the perfect piece for my spring wardrobe. Want want want!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Can’t stop, won’t stop loving red, white, and blue outfits…or Daphne’s outfits for that matter. Especially loving this winter-to-spring transition outfit!
  3. This floral print fit-and-flare dress will be perfect for all those spring and summer weddings that are sure to be on your upcoming social calendar!
  4. My new favorite Instagram account is this one (here) featuring comics about about a girl and her boyfriend and ALL the adorable “real” things they do. The one where she steals all her boyfriend’s clothes…is basically a biography of my life! ;)
  5. Another statement necklace never hurt anyone…like this wooden bead option which will literally go with EVERYTHING!
  6. This combination of stripes and crochet overlay is very classic-with-a-twist…and totally belongs in my closet.
  7. One night last week, I was looking for a quick, single serving chocolate chip cookie recipe that wouldn’t leave me with a dozen or more cookies to eat, and this one was easy and so tasty. Perfect for if you just want one cookie (or two or three…it actually makes way more than one)!
  8. I just want to look as classy and pulled together as the model in the first picture looks. Is that TOO much to ask for? ;)
  9. And just in case you DO indulge in that chocolate chip cookie recipe above (and you should), here are 10 healthy dinners that actually look really delicious to balance it out!
  10. And lastly, a pretty polka dot skirt to get you ready for spring!

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.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • It’s finally Friday! This was the first week in a long time that I’ve actually worked 5 whole workdays (woe is me), and boy let me tell you, it felt like it!
  • We finally saw La La Land this week, which I had apparently hyped up in my head to be the greatest movie ever. And let me tell you, I liked it…a lot, but it wasn’t the best movie in the history of time (that’s Princess Bride for those of you keeping track at home). Emma Stone is flawless though, the music is great and catchy,…and 2 hours of Ryan Gosling never hurt anyone. ;)
  • Tonight we’re going out for burgers and drinks with my best friend and her husband to celebrate his birthday, and then this weekend we’re staying in and catching up on some TV (2 solid days of football games, y’all) and chores. It’s one of our last free weekends for a while…and it’s suppose to be fairly cold….so my couch plus my puppy sounds pretty great!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

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.
