Jean Suit

It’s all in the details. This outfit could go casual very quickly–trade the heels for flats, throw off the jacket and scarf, and you’ve got cute-summer-weekend in the bag. But some blue suede heels, a metallic blue scarf, a beautifully tailored denim blazer, and a blue bauble necklace (under the scarf; I forgot to take a picture!) really make the diffrence. As do painted fingernails, some rings, clean/shiny/straight/bangs-behaving-well hair and makeup. The details. These mirrored aviators make my life more fun. Dug ’em out of the $1 bin at the thrift store. They are missing one nose pad, but eh–how much does that matter, really? One less nose pad mark when I take them off! Ha! 
{suppose I could get one of those $3 eyeglass repair kits, huh?}

Ice Queen

I’m not sure I’m ever going to take my “crown” off, guys. Like, ever. Okay. 
And yes, I might be wearing ice blue eyeliner, and totally loving it.
I had the inspiration to wear this necklace as “ice baubles” and the “ice blue” eyeliner for a fun photoshoot I did, and just loved it so much I had to wear it out. 
This amazing metal bauble necklace is one of my favorite purchases! I actually snagged it at a Von Maur the night before my photoshoot with Life:Beautiful magazine. It was $12, and I would pay every penny of that again just to wear it on my head like this one more time. I love it! We even used it in the photoshoot for the magazine. You can see it below, after one of the clever LB team girls turned it into a bracelet. I took a note from their cleverness and turned it into a hair piece! Who would have thought?! 
And it’s kinda famous, having been in a magazine and all. 
But enough about my necklace/bracelet/hairpiece (WHICH I LOVE!!!!!! And I’m not going to take it off!)….ok, now that’s really enough. 
I’m going to stop now.
Also, I have no idea why I’m looking to the sky in both of those photos.

I’ll Be Aunt Mildred

No big deal, guys. I’ll just be the quintessential “Aunt Mildred” in all of the family photos with the crazy big hair and the handful of cocktail rings. You know, we all had one, right? Back in the 60s, in all the family photos? That’s me, and I’m OK with it. Also, I got this ring at H&M on Black Friday and the earrings many months ago at a little boutique in the Midwest. I thought it was crazy how well they coordinate! 
In related news, this dress DOES fit the fingertip rule; my hair is not really off-center, I just couldn’t get the other side to stay UP; and I think that sweater makes me look vaguely pregnant (not, duh). And my elderly neighbor thought I looked “SO cute!” Guess she was an Aunt Mildred in her day 😉

This Body Brought to You by Sour Patch Kids

{girls! I finally pulled up the hideous weed in all of my photos! it wasn’t technically mine to pull up, so I had to wait for the exact right timing to obtain permission. permission obtained. weed gone. lightning bolt on picture. yes!}


Sour Patch Kids. Those wonderfully chewy, sour, sweet candies. The boy and I ate FAR too many of them at the drive-in movie this past weekend. And then we both decided we were going to quit eating processed sugar {seriously}. But I snuck (what?! is that not a word?! it’s underlining it! what is the past tense of ‘sneak’? help a sister out!) the rest of the Sour Patch Kids into my purse. 

Then yesterday, while editing this photo, I noticed that my thighs are practically STUFFED into these pants. And quite obviously, I needed to start exercising. So I grabbed a handful of Sour Patch Kids for energy, and did 50 jumping jacks in the kitchen. No lie. 
Then I went for a loooooooong walk. Uphill. And on my way back I realized I had a dribble of mocha-fudge frozen yogurt dried down my arm. 
I think I need a sugar intervention. Like, seriously. I’m not even kidding.

Babydoll

Hey guys! So this is definitely not one of my favorite outfits, and I must admit, I think anything “babydoll” lives up to it’s name (no I am NOT pregnant, lol), so I’m not sure why I still have them in my closet! But I like the colors, and I had the photos in my Flickr, so it was the only outfit I could blog from the boyfriend’s house! And I needed to blog something today. Going through withdrawal because my computer is currently fried!
