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). ;)

Trench Coat Season

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!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

An Outfit Press Conference

When in doubt, throw on all the navy items you have in your closet and call it a day. I mean that’s clearly how this outfit came together. And now to answer a few questions from the press…

Do I think this outfit would be much, much better without tights? Yes.

Do I have to wear said tights anyways because it is February in Indiana? Also yes.

Would my legs have blinded you because of how winter pale they are? I plead the fifth.

Do I love navy more than almost all the other colors ever (excluding Colts blue which is my favorite ever)? Yes, yes, and yes.

ps. Favorite color ever? Ready, set, tell me in the comments!
pps. Speaking of press conferences, if you haven’t seen Melissa McCarthy’s take on Sean Spicer (White House Press Secretary), please direct your attention to this video here.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Oh my gosh you guys, winter is here and it arrived very quickly in these parts. Pass me ALL the blankets and scarves…and blanket scarves.
  • Today is one of my favorite days of the year! The Husband and I always end up with extra vacation/sick days at the end of the year that we have to use or lose, so we now have a tradition to take a December Friday off together and go explore some new places in Indianapolis! We usually pick a new coffeeshop, new brewery/bar, new restaurant, and new museum to check out. It’s the best way to discover new places in your city!
  • And the rest of the weekend, we’ll be celebrating a dear friend’s wedding in Bloomington and trying to stay warm and cozy on our couch!
  • Also, not to panic you or anything, but it is only two more weeks til Christmas weekend! Ahhh!

Dear lovely readers,

This year I am thankful for…

  • Readers/followers like you who make this blog so fun to write and share! I’m seriously so lucky to have great readers and great blog friends! Thanks for coming to this space and sharing your lives with me (and putting up with my dad/bad jokes)! :)
  • The Husband who is my calm and steady force, and who also happens to be the best coffeemaker in this house (because coffee always tastes better when someone else makes it for you)!
  • Parents who love and support me (and The Husband) on life decisions and just general well-being (aka will talk to me on the phone about Colts football games and where something might be located in the grocery store or how to make it through only really bad lunch break). I’m lucky to be able to spend Thanksgiving this year with them!
  • A younger brother who lives super far away, but whom has never been a closer friend and confidant (special kudos for the WORST/BEST Guy Fieri impression ever).
  • In-law who make me feel like one of their own.
  • Friends who are really like family members.
  • A puppy who is the sweetest, most loyal, cuddliest ever.
  • Coffee, brunch, chocolate chips, and Bath & Body Works candles.
  • And a long list of other things that I could list for hours, because I am blessed to the max!

Happy Thanksgiving all, to you and yours! Have a great time with your families today and see you for some shopping tomorrow! :)
