Bare Ankle Party

Yahoo for the return of bare (white and pasty) ankles! The no-socks count for this week has been three days.

Snow has drastically receded in our yard. The lamppost is fully free, the shrubs are totally exposed, and all that's really left in the front yard is the bank near the road.

Blazer: Ann Taylor
Shirt: Forever 21
Pants: Banana Republic
Shoes: Gap
Bag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Stella & Dot
Glasses: Burberry

I've worn these pants a lot lately. The pictures aren't very clear but they are faux suede and really soft. I hesitate to call them pants as they are pocketless in the back and skin tight - so in following the "leggings are not pants" rule - I will always be wearing these with a longer shirt.

Have a wonderful weekend full of fun!

Wedding Wednesday: Can We Get Married at the Mall?

Is it not totally fitting for a style blogger to have a wedding reception at a restaurant in one of the best malls ever?

Now,  I'm not saying I chose Maggiano's because it was in Fashion Show Mall, but the location certainly didn't hurt!

Our Hummer driver dropped us off at the entrance to TopShop, which was just perfect for some in-store shots.

Hmm, does plaid go with tulle?

Why can't my hair look like this every day?

By the time we walked through the mall to the restaurant, my dress had very effectively swept the floor, complete with straw wrappers, napkins, and several plastic utensils hiding underneath. Ugh.

Monday Right Now: 04/13/15

Reading: Is This Tomorrow by Caroline Leavitt. I'm really into coming-of-age stories lately. This one is great! Kobo tells me I'm 79% done. The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker is what I read previously and it was a fun and easy read - one I zoomed through.
Writing: Just blog posts and care plans at work.
Clicking: Who What Wear, blog posts, The Weather Network (to make sure there's no more snow)
Seeing: Sunset over the golf course. It's still snow-covered but I'm guessing there will be grass poking through by this time next week!
Smelling: Ketchup chips. I was so good today until now...
Hearing: The washer and dryer running. I was in such a good mood today. It was 12 degrees, the sun was shining, I had on shoes with no socks, and a brand new pair of pants. Then - to thank me for feeding them for the past week - a bird pooped on me. On my new pants. I'm washing them for the second time.

Watching: The Royals (think Gossip Girl, but with a royal family and set in England), DWTS, season two of Hart of Dixie, The Social, and I'm finishing season two of Orange is the New Black.
Feeling: Happy because I spent the weekend with one of my best friends, who I rarely get to see. We did some shopping, had some great food (including Tim Tams) and caught up! If only she didn't live five hours away by plane...

The cookie of true friendship.

Wearing: Fuzzy robe. My pants have bird poop on them.
Anticipating: The weekend (as always). Also, in two weeks I'm going to be making a big change with my hair as long as I don't chicken out!

Non-compliant Clothing

What to do when your outfit of choice doesn't co-operate? Think outside the box!

This is a dress. It simply cannot be worn as a dress because it is so static-prone. After unsuccessfully trying to wear it twice - once with bare legs and once with tights - it is now a tunic to be belted, pulled up a bit, and worn with jeans.  

Cardigan, belt, and tunic: Forever 21
Jeans: Guess by Marciano
Sunnies: Coach
Boots: Call it Spring
Bracelet:  J Crew
Nails:  c/o OPI "Lost My Bikini in Molokini"

I wore this for Easter. There was a ton of snow (still is...) but it looks deceptively spring-like on our front step!
