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 highlights:

  • Has this week been the weirdest week for anyone else? I wasn’t actually convinced it was Friday…until I double checked my phone. I’ll take it, especially since this is my normal Friday off!
  • It is beyond FREEZING here in Indianapolis, so I’m spending most of the day curled up drinking coffee, snuggling under blankets, and obsessively playing this game (Stardew Valley for anyone interested) that my brother got me hooked on.
  • In sadder news, my great-grandmother passed away on Monday. We all knew it was coming eventually, as she was 97(!), but that doesn’t make it any less sad. She was a classy, sassy lady, and a huge Indiana sports fan. I’ll be wearing pearls this weekend and watching football (even though our dear Colts aren’t in the playoffs) in honor of her. Be sure to give your loved ones an extra hug today for me!

Turtleneck Magic Trick

I’ve now found my new favorite trick for turning all my summer dresses into winter dresses.

You know, besides moving to Florida/California where ALL summer dresses are also winter dresses!

My trick (which saves you on moving costs) is a simple turtleneck under a sleeveless or t-shirt dress! Presto, change-o!

You can try a solid color (try black or navy first) or add in some extra fun with a striped option. It adds some warmth without adding a ton of bulk and extends your closet options! It’s like a magic trick for those of us who choose/are forced to live in winter climates.

Abracadabra TURTLENECK!

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!

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!
