Worn this past weekend for some antique shopping, a trip to IKEA and then lunch at Texas Roadhouse followed by Sonic for deep fried Oreos. There was a lot of walking through aisles, good thing because we needed to work off all the food we ate! I had a coupon for a free appetizer at Texas Roadhouse, we were seduced by a cactus blossom! (aka bloomin' onion) So we made this our pseudo Valentine's date, even though my parents joined us, since we don't really care to celebrate.  I wore pink for the occasion.

Velvet Blazer: Gap, Striped Sweater: Banana Republic,  Jeans: J Brand 'Mid Rise Photo Ready Super Skinny Jean' (Gilt), Sneakers c/o NikeiD, Merces Petite Bag c/o Orox Leather Co.

Here's what I wore for our second Easter celebration. This dress is definitely in my top 3 of all my dresses. I just love the whimsical print and the fitted top. I wore it SOOO many times the first year I bought it and have slowed down it's wears the past few years. But I think this Spring/Summer I'm going to bring it out some more. It has made some memorable trips with me though. It came to the Press Preview of Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando, on a trip to Paris a couple years ago and to Italy last May. Who knows where it will go next!

You also get a lot of detail shots today because my photographer was feeling ambitious and it was actually warm enough to spend more than 5 minutes outside. Special appearance by my sister's dog, Teddy! Such a cutie! (He's a Shiba Inu for those curious folk)

Paris Map Dress: Carven (YOOX), Blazer: Gap, Sandals: Cole Haan 'Minetta' (Amazon), Sunglasses: Chanel (bought in Greece), Necklace: BubuRuby, Rings: Lumo 'Violet', Mejuri 'Stellar', Moon Magic 'Eclipse', Moon Magic 'Petite Double', vintage

This doesn't look like a first day of Spring outfit. Nevertheless it's what I wore on Tuesday for a couple quick errands and to get my free Rita's Italian Ice! Mmmm. Thanks to eBay you can still recreate this outfit even though it's 6 years old! I found the blazer, top and jeans available from different sellers.

Since I don't go out (trick-or-treating or partying,) it is not one of my favorite holidays to celebrate, but I LOVE the time leading up to Halloween. All through October I watch my favorite Halloween themed movies over and over and over. Who doesn't love Casper, Hocus Pocus, Teen Witch, Halloweentown and all the other fun movies we watched as kids? (I don't do scary movies)

Reusing some photos from last year to celebrate. (I STILL haven't actually worn this at a Halloween party, I don't get invited to parties, haha...I did wear it to the office last year, without the hat.) So, here I am as Willy Wonka!

Ahh Friday, my second favorite day of the week. Saturday is obviously my favorite because you don't have to worry about anything: no work the next day, you can do anything you want during the day and stay up late. Sunday is okay, but like Meg Ryan says in Kate & Leopold, it gets spoiled because you know you have to go to work Monday.  I've got quite a large amount planned for this long weekend. Probably starting with a trip to Marhsalls on Saturday, then going to a fun gemstone place with my sister, and on Sunday getting my nails done with my best friends and we will probably go out to eat and see Frozen after.

Right when I get back into the groove of going back to the office 4 days a week I have a crazy week ahead of me. Next Monday the office is closed, I'm going in on Tuesday, then Wednesday I'm working at home and then I'm off Thursday - Monday for my trip to Florida. I'm headed to the Harry Potter Celebration weekend they're having at Universal. My sister and I planned to go months ago and bought our tickets and then earlier this week Universal emailed me asking if I would like to cover the event for my site,, score!

Another day, another outfit, another blazer.  I do love my blazers, definitely an addiction. Whenever I see a new one I want to buy it, most of the time I resist.  A couple weeks ago I inherited this gorgeous topaz and diamond necklace from my Grandmother and I never want to take it off. It is so gorgeous and makes me feel like I always have her with me. I can visit her whenever I want since she lives next door, but it's fun to have a piece she used to wear.

I'm still getting used to my short hair so, for this outing, I tried a mini french braid in front to keep the shorter hairs out of my face. I find it easier than using a barrette, I can never get them to stay properly. BUT then when I take it out I have crazy kinky hair. Funny that I used to WANT my hair to look like that back when I was in middle school. It was all the rage! So for gymnastics I would french braid my hair, and then take it out for school the next day.

I hope everyone had a lovely week. Mine was quite busy and today will be busy as well. But at least I get to work from the comfort of my couch today. In the world of clothes - I have still successfully avoided wearing an actual winter coat, it's still warm enough when I leave work to not need one. Although I did wear my new rain coat from Marshalls this week (once, haha.) I did layer sweaters on top of each outfit though, I'm not trying to get sick! I also wore a couple new-to-me pieces that I snagged while helping Lydia clean her closet. Both are purple, obviously, ha ha.  I was also a bad girl and wore leggings as pants, but my sweater was long enough to cover my rear, so I think it's okay.  I wasn't feeling good that day and didn't want to wear real clothes.

How is it already November 1st?! This is insanity!! I hope everyone had a great Halloween. I just went to my parents house after work, had dinner, watched Wheel of Fortune and It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and then went home home to watch TV until bed. So exciting, right?!

I'm so glad it's sweater season again, I do love wearing all my knits! Speaking of them, I just snagged an awesome new sweater from Madewell for $35 (regular $88!) Unfortunately the color I bought (Navy and Purple) sold out, but there are 2 other color options. They're having a sale that goes through tonight - just enter code SWEETSALE for 40% off sale items and free shipping! :)

Here's my Halloween 'costume!' Can you guess who I am? one?  WILLY WONKA! Willy Wonka is one of my all time favorite movies and over the Summer I realized I had all the pieces to create a girl version.  I always call this purple blazer my Willy Wonka jacket and this ASOS dress from a few years ago has a print just like on his shirt.  Meant to be, right?!  All I had to do was buy some ribbon so my mom could make me a big bow.  I decided to forgo the cane, but I did pick up a hat on eBay.

I'm not actually going anywhere but I thought it was fun and I'm wearing the outfit to work today. Minus the hat and bow, though I will bring them in my tote bag in case I feel like putting them on.
