Dress Well: Think Pink

Man, I'm having quite the neon-pink week, and it's only Tuesday!

I'm not sure what changed, but Madewell has been knocking it out of the park for me recently. I used to find nothing in there, but now I can't walk in without walking out with four or more items (don't worry, I pay for them). This sweater was my most recent find - although I've been a bit hesitant to embrace the trend of looser fitting sweaters (they don't always look the best on girls with broad shoulders) this one really changed my mind. Paired with this skirt, the outfit feels very Kendi Everyday - do you guys read her blog? I aspire to her perfect blend of humor and style. Maybe if I keep dressing like her I'll get her knack for comedy, too.

Dress Well: My Favorite Color

Navy blue is, and will always be, my favorite color. However, I've found that in most cases it's necessary to force myself to resist the temptation to buy navy blue tops and sweaters - because we wear jeans year-round here in SF, it's virtually impossible to craft an outfit with a navy top if you don't want to look like a giant dark blue popsicle (something I've been guilty of on many occasions). However, colored denim has proven to be a total game-changer in that respect. Now that I have neon pink jeans, bring on the navy shirts! I'd wear them every day if I could.

Well, I've got another week full of hard work, note taking, careful listening, and question asking ahead of me, and I couldn't be more excited! Although I tried to get my rest in this weekend, I'm not sure I was wholly successful - dinner with friends, long walks, an outing to Troya, going to see Mud, an Ikea trip, watching a friend perform in a musical, and a Mad Men viewing party all got in the way of being completely rested. Not feeling sorry for me? You shouldn't be - it was a fantastic weekend :)

Enjoy your Monday.

Dress Well: Travel Day

I think I've officially given up on the hope of ever taking pictures in this shirt when it isn't wrinkly. It's just not going to happen.

What is there to say about this outfit, other than the fact that my tried-and-true chambray shirt and trusty pink pants are the very best travel combination? I would probably wear this outfit about once a week if I thought no one would notice...unfortunately, there's nothing very subtle about neon pink pants.

My husband was being a goofball while we were taking pictures, so I struck this pose.

And then I decided to be goofy, so I struck this pose. We're going through a bit of a JT phase right now, resulting in me singing this song nonstop (sorry for the ghetto video).

After early morning CrossFit and driving my husband to work, I came back to the apartment and slept for about two and a half hours. Which left me a bit dazed and confused at noon, something I haven't really experienced on a Monday since college. Then it was off to the grocery store, and then off to the dentist, where I was kindly informed that my incessant teeth grinding is probably going to end up costing me a lot of money in the form of dental work. AND I get to go back tomorrow to get two cavities filled! Who doesn't like spending half of their week off at the dentist? When I got home I was happy to see that the J. Crew clothes that I ordered last week were here, but then tried everything on and decided that I won't be keeping any of it (hell was probably freezing over simultaneously). Luckily, I polished off the night with a homemade salad and catching up on Mad Men, so it ended on a high note.

Here's hoping that you're doing something a bit more fun than getting cavities filled today. Have a great one!
