Been Saved Again By The Garbage Truck

I took a sick day yesterday. I haven’t been feeling super. I still feel kind of meh, but there is only one day left so I can make it!

March 5

Yes. It really is that warm. It was in the upper 40’s when we were taking pictures, but they are predicting 70’s by next week!

The Coupland read is going OK, better than before. Hillary and I talked about it a bit, and I explained the reason I am giving him a third chance is basically Chuck Klosterman. I tried Chuck Klosterman a couple times and he just got on my nerves. I really didn’t like it, but he’s pretty much the only thing Nathan reads (that and books on the history of various record labels), so I really wanted to get what all the fuss was about. And on the third try? I did. And I am going back and re-reading the books I didn’t like and loving them. Hillary said she had the same kind of thing happen before, sometimes it just takes a while for an author to click.

The tee is a recent birthday gift card purchase from the men’s department at Target. I prefer dark colors and the men’s department had more of those. A snip here and a snip there and I ended up with a tee in the colors I like in a more flattering, less boxy looking cut. Plus…

LOOK how perfect the colors are for a little pattern mixing with my new wedges! I saw these during the first round of birthday shopping and I did not get them, but I could not stop thinking about them. So they are the one thing (OK, OK, and a $5 lip gloss) I broke the ban for, and I am not sorry. When I went back a week later, they were on sale for an additional 25% off! The foot bed is padded, and they are so comfy. Plus you know I love a snakeskin shoe!

March 5

Tons of necklaces make for an automatically dressier outfit. I made the bead and key one yesterday while Nathan watched some show about hip hop feuds on Fuse . I did not understand a single word. Once in a while Nathan would explain it to me, but I swear they were speaking a foreign language.

Very Rocker Chic! I have been doing my fair share of damage in Target too!

Fabulous sandals, and I love your fearless altering of t-shirt.

I love the bead necklace you made! Oh man, I can't even go near a Nordstrom's Rack... SO many shoes! The one in the Mall of America is giant and there is no sales tax in MN, so it's all just very dangerous for me in there!

Emily Kennedy said...

The shoes are WAY cute! Love the mix of taupe and black! Fresh!

I also did not like Chuck Klosterman. Some of his stuff can be witty, but he is just so whiney!!
Those shoes are great *hug NR*. And your accessories are fantastic with this outfit!

Kyla said...

Oooh -- mommy likey :) And I'm so ridiculously jealous that you are wearing sandals and that you will be seeing 70 in a few days. No fair!
