Today’s fun highlights:

  • I’m all about the juxtapose of tough jackets with feminine dresses lately. Sassy and sweet…just the way my grandmas like me. ;)
  • This week was a whirlwind of going-out events. Monday, the Indy bloggers got together at Punch Bowl Social, and it was super fun to catch up with everyone, meet some new folks, and get my bowl on!
  • And then Wednesday, The Husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary with some leather gifts (third anniversary tradition, according to the internet…I got a stunning gray J.Crew purse that I’ll be sure to share soon) and a seafood dinner at Salt on Mass (not sure I would fully recommend it, Indy folks…though they did give us a free and delicious salted caramel brownie for dessert!). I’m a lucky lady (and a cheeseball for sure), but that husband of mine is a catch, and I’d marry him again in a heartbeat.
  • And today I’m off work and running a million errands this weekend! Cooper to the vet for his yearly check, haircut for me, and dentist for me too (blech). But luckily I also get to see my mom for lunch…these are the perks when you still drive 2 hours to treat with your childhood dentist. Does anyone else still do this…or just me? ;)

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.

Did you guys know that you’re not a true style blogger unless you make that Devil Wears Prada joke once every spring. It’s true!

They also take away your membership card if you don’t say the phrase “pop of color” or “must-have piece” once every 10 posts.

So consider me safe for another few posts or so. Thank goodness.

ps. This Loft blouse is putting in some work! I love how it has paired equally well with black (see this post here) and with navy in today’s post!

Fleur-de-lis or Fireflies

Well, I’m not sure how I go around and beat the greatness of yesterday’s pun-filled post (here if you missed it), but my parents didn’t raise a quitter, so I’m back (back again…for all my Eminem fans), but this time with a bit of a rambling post.

Since I don’t own that beautiful berry-filled skirt, I have to make my own red and navy magic in some older tried-and-true pieces. Nothing like a good old remix with some closet workhorses to round out the work week.

On another note, some of you sent me some super sweet personal messages about my crappy week last week. I can’t thank you all enough! It’s so nice to be part of a caring and giving community. If you don’t mind, please send my mom some good vibes/wishes/prayers today. She is having her surgery, and I’m driving up north to be with her this weekend. Thanks in advance, guys!

Lastly, are those fleur-de-lis on my shirt or fireflies? A question that might leave you pondering allllll weekend long. ;)

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Or more like, Happy St. Palm-trick’s Day….okay, I’ll see myself out.
  • Just sporting a little green over here for St. Patrick’s Day. No pinches here. This palm leaf print tee must have been an end-of-season summer sales find last year (that I don’t remember buying…haha), and I found it in my closet when I was trying to pack for Texas. Good find, past-me…good find.
  • Which also means, I probably need to make time to do another closet cleanout. #whoops
  • But not this weekend, because we’re jammed pack with a St. Patrick’s Day celebration tonight and birthday celebrations on The Husband’s side this weekend. Ready, set, party is my motto this weekend!

Do you collect anything? For example, when I was much younger, I used to have a bunny collection (#somanyfigurinerabbits), and then for awhile I was collecting magnets from every place I visited, but that fizzled out too.

And now? Well, now, I thought that I didn’t really collect anything, but turns out that was a lie. Becauuuuusssseeee….

I am a blazer collector, folks. And I’m pretty dang good at it. I’ve amassed a large small collection of colors and patterns, and I’m always on the lookout for a new beauty to add to my treasure trove. Like this lovely Regent blazer from J.Crew (here). I loved how it looked on Fran (here for how she’s worn it) and figured I might as well get the infamous J.Crew blazers a try. I love how it fits and the way it adds a layer of professionalism to this outfit.

And besides, as a expert collector of blazers, can you really have too many blazers in your collection? No, no you cannot!

ps. I also apparently collect dog hair. On my blazers, but also on my skirts, shirts, dresses, pants, coats, etc. You could even say that I’m a refined collector of dog hair (since I specialize in the hair of one Australian Shepherd/mix breed dog). ;)
