TGIF! Even If It Feels Like Wednesday...

My whole week has been messed up due to the snow day the kids had on Wednesday. I'm in disbelief that tomorrow is Saturday, but the weekend is welcome nonetheless. I currently have a massive migraine and am looking forward to sleeping in as long as possible tomorrow morning.

I was laughing in most of the pictures I took tonight because my daughter told me that my eyes were closed in all of them. I'm very naive, so I believed the little prankster! Laughing with her reset my mood (which wasn't great, due to the migraine) and relieved some of the stress I've been feeling recently. My kids all have great senses of humor and time and again they save me from taking life too seriously. :)

Cardigan: Anthropologie Dwarf Quince Cardigan - $31.00
Dress: Anthropologie Vappu Dress - $50.00
Belt: Anthropologie Buckled Cummerbund Belt - $20.00
Tights: George brand from Walmart - $5.00
Boots: Vince Camuto Fivvy Boots - $126.00

Please forgive my wrinkly dress. I have a terrible, terrible habit of taking midday naps with the husband and wrinkling my pretty clothes. With the migraine today, I was completely couch bound until my Advil kicked in a minute ago, thus adding to my wrinkleage.

Bonus picture!

Me petting a cat with LASER EYES! I wish I'd lint rolled that thread off my booty, but oh well... 


  1. Very cute outfit! The belt is the Buckled Cummerbund.

  2. Thanks so much for the compliment. I appreciate the belt name too. :)

  3. You look adorable, and I am totally jealous over your score on that cardigan (but not as jealous as your naps!) - it's gorgeous! Hope you are feeling better, migrains are the worst.

  4. Thanks, Jan. :)

    My youngest, Grant, is in "half day" kindergarten, so I have two whole hours of free time each weekday. I wish I was more productive during that time, but the lure of a nap is so much more seductive.

  5. Wowser -- what a great deal on the cardigan. And it looks great with your navy dress. I have the Vappu in mustard/yellow, and it is SO wrinkly. But I honestly can't see the wrinkles in these pictures at all!

  6. It's the most wrinkle prone dress that I own... and the navy attracts so much lint and pet hair. :/

    Praise be to the Anthro for applying my birthday discount on top of their 25% off! Thanks for the sweet compliment. :)
