Dress Well: High School Flashback

I have two confessions to make:

First - these pictures were taken a long time ago (back in October, I think). I don't live in some sort of warm January wonderland where sleeveless shirts are totally comfortable in the middle of the winter (sadly).

Second - I'm wearing American Eagle jeans. ...I know. For all of you who are 26 like me and just shuddered at the thought of what you used to wear in high school...I am right there with you. I bought these jeans because American Eagle is one of shopkick's clients, and I was testing out a discount that we have in our app. I then waited a month longer to wear them because high school Natalie was shouting "don't do it!" across the space-time continuum. But then I put them on and realized they're the greatest, cheapest thing to ever happen to my wardrobe. I've been wanting "destroyed" jeans forever, and I managed to get them for $35!

DSC_5391Did anyone else wake up this morning singing the "Friday" song to themselves? I'm pretty thankful to have made it successfully through the first week back after the holiday (although it wasn't painless). Going to Crossfit on Tuesday and Wednesday morning resulted in me being so incredibly, thoroughly sore that I currently am incapable of walking like a normal human. But hey - I'm shuffling around now so I can avoid shuffling around when I'm an old lady. Worth it, right?

As usual, I am very excited for the upcoming weekend. We're likely going to see one of the many spectacular-looking movies that are currently out (I'm really excited about Selma) and are also taking a day trip up to wine country with some of our friends. And I'm sure there will be some enjoyment of sunshine and 60-degree weather in there, too. I hope you've got plenty of things to look forward to this weekend as well!

Have a wonderful Friday.
