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!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

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). ;)

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

  1. I ordered these striped pants this weekend, because I thought they might be perfect for some non-boring work pants. I’ll keep you posted, but I’m worried that even in the talls, they might be too short for my giraffe legs!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Obsessed doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel about this look on Daphne. Blue + white + tulips…say no more! I’ll be recreating this here as soon as the weather can figure itself out over here!
  3. This might be the prettiest skirt in the history of skirts.
  4. J.Crew shows you how to style your denim the next time you are in a style rut!
  5. These striped ankle strap flats are the perfect spring/summer addition to anyone’s wardrobe!
  6. The last thing I need in my closet is another jacket/coat, but this one is such a fun shape, annnnnd it comes with detachable stripe cuffs! Love it!
  7. Kudos to LEGO for their new collection featuring five NASA pioneers…who all just happen to be female! Check them out here, and hopefully this is just the beginning of more to come! 
  8. I was just casually browsing Banana Republic the other day for work pants, when I stumbled upon the knockout maxi dress in a gingham print! Guh! Love it and would be so perfect for summer weddings or summer BBQs and everything in between!
  9. Love the song “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran (one of my current favorite singers)…so naturally, I loved the classroom instrument version by The Roots and Jimmy Fallon and of course, Ed. That banana maraca!
  10. Scallops + eyelet + a variety of spring colors? Say no more…I’m ordering this pretty blouse!

ps. This “shirt” is a shirt dress tucked into a skirt. Pretty clever, huh? Gotta maximize that wardrobe!

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!

And another way to style this ridiculously gorgeous coat.

And another ridiculous way to utilize a “check” blog post title.

But what will she do next?

ps. The answer is frantically pack for her upcoming trip to Texas. #whoops
