can't win 'em all

This outfit looked so much better in person. Like, 100 times better in person. Trust me. It (and I) photographed terribly. Is it all the black? All the dark colors? The stripes? The fleece-lined tights? The cold? Maybe it makes my face puffy?

I just don't know. But I do know this is clearly not a great outfit. I look a bit shapeless and that's not doing me any favors. But, in the interest of real style and transparency, here's what I wore! And as great as some looks were earlier this week (here and here, oh, and here), this one just isn't competing. 

But, I'm a real person, with real style, and a real life, and a real job, and real wrinkley dogs, and sometimes, my real outfits aren't so great. *sigh*

Navy Stripes

Here's a simple look for this Friday eve. I got this shirt from a friend, and while I love the stripes and the lace, I'm not sure I'm such a fan of the elastic waist on the bottom of the top. 

The jury is still out...

Happy Friday!

Housewife in Purple

these are the shoes I wore for our wedding, with a shiny 2012 penny glued to the bottom

I found this dress at a thrift store and it reminded me of something an old-fashioned housewife might wear. So, I brought it home and then cut several inches off the bottom to bring it into this century. I added a bright belt and punchy shoes to finish the transition into this decade. What do you think? The top is a bit boxy, but I think it helps to balance out the short & flowy skirt.

On another note, ya know how sometimes the days just get away from you and you can't seem to catch up all week? And then the weekend seems like the perfect time to recharge, but all of a sudden your weekend is filled up? And the next one, too, and the one after that? Yeah? That's me lately. Color me exhausted! But in a good way - lots of time spent with friends & family and big changes at work for my Mr. & I.

I'm so looking forward to putting my feet up this evening and doing nothing. Some people go out every Friday night and are amped up for the weekend. I'm the opposite - there's nothing I look forward to more on a Friday evening than laying low and having a movie night with the Mr. and the pups. Am I the only 20-something who feels that way? Weekends are the perfect time for me to regroup and get myself mentally, emotionally & physically ready to tackle the week ahead.

On that note, have a great weekend! I've got some blogging catching up to do, sooooo, yeah ;)

I'm on Friday's Five!

Some good news for you lovely folks today! I'm being featured on Friday's Five Link Up over at
Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins and FACE IT Catalog with my post about our first wedding anniversary! Big things, my friends, big things!


Aaaand, I figured out how to make a "button" work on this here blog (above). Applause? Oh thank you, thank you, you're too kind!

In other news, my parents voluntarily evacuated their home last night and they are safe. My in-laws are safe, and so far their home appears unaffected.

We're heading to a friend's wedding this evening, and then my handsome Mr. will be completing the Tough Mudder on Sunday with friends (I'm going to be "Team Mom," complete with orange slices & juice boxes for the competitors). One of those friends being his bestie (do boys use the word "bestie"?) who lost his home in the Black Forest Fire - how's that for true friendship & comradery? Those two have been friends since kindergarten, and he was the best man at our wedding.

We're looking forward to some downtime & fun to take our minds off the fire in our hometown. However, we will be checking in on the news here.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Stay safe!

Comfy in Pink


                     *he wanted his feet in the picture, too

I wore this on Friday to work. I thought about wearing something else (a bit dressier) but then I remembered it was Friday. And Fridays are the beginning of the weekend. So leggings & a sweatshirt-dress-type-thing it was!

Right after our "photoshoot," we went out for dinner at a local Cajun place, Mo Betta Gumbo. SO. GOOD. I got a Buffalo Shrimp Po' Boy, and my Mr. got Jambalaya. We were both very impressed, and will definitely eat there again.

See my "shadow" in almost every picture? He never strays too far from me on a walk. And our chic-a-dee isn't pictured, as she was stuck like glue to my photog.
