I am so happy to be back with an outfit post. I meant to do one yesterday to follow the giveaway post, but I never got out of my pajamas. I have the week off from work, a little down time is good for the soul. I did feel good getting dressed today, though. I have had these shoes forever, but living somewhere where ice covers the sidewalks and roads for at least 5 months out of the year I didn't have the guts to try them out. I also wish that this skirt was a pleated black chiffon skirt that I have been seeing everywhere, but this black bamboo skirt with have to do (it's soo cozy).

A couple of awesome things are coming up that I cannot wait for. In two weeks today, I will be laying on the beach in Mexico (this little fact is the only thing getting me through this never ending winter). Also, 3 weeks today is my 30th birthday! I still can't believe I am turning 30. It's a little crazy. I plan on doing a little remix challenge for the packing, one suitcase for 3 of us (space is limited). I have got it down to 12 pieces including bathing suit and shoes for 10 days. I am really impressed with myself. 

Also, don't forget about my giveaway. 6 days left to enter!! Up to 4 chances to enter and win!
p.s. Thanks to Emily over at The Other Emily for the awesome hair tutorial. Totally had to try it out today. I added a couple more braids to my version of the milkmaid. 


  1. Your hairstyle is incredible. I'm seriously in awe of it and believe it to be a defeat of gravity, so kudos to you. Also, I'm pretty jealous of this lying in the sun business of which you speak. Have a fantastic time when you go!

  2. You rock those shoes! Hope all is well! See you soon :)

  3. Aaaah, I love the extra-braided milkmaid style! It looks so gorgeous with that extra level of detail in the back, I may have to try adding more braids the next time I do mine. :)

    On top of that, I freakin' love this outfit. It's the perfect mix of casual neutrals and soft shape with a little glam from the glasses and necklace. Perfect!
