You might have noticed that things look a little different around these parts. Surprise, I redesigned my blog! I don’t have any other answer other than that I was bored and thought this one looked cool, and I don’t know if you’ve noticed over the past year+ that I’ve been doing this, but I can’t seem to stick to a single design for more than 3 minutes. So, fair warning, the old layout might be making a comeback. Especially considering the understandably lukewarm reaction a bunch of you had when this layout appeared. Don’t worry, I’m sort of lukewarm to it, too. UGH, what is wrong with me?
It feels good to get back into the swing of things after taking almost a 3 week break from doing my routine posts, and I had a lot more fun hunting down today’s two of a kinds. I actually felt a little rusty, sort of like whatever part of my brain is responsible for these comparisons hadn’t had a workout in a while. Now that I’ve sufficiently built this up…
First of all, I know that dress looks like something Malibu Barbie would have worn in the 80s, but with all the time I’ve spent on Net a Porter, the vivid colorblocking was seared into my brain for good. So when I stumbled upon that Rebecca Minkoff wallet earlier this week, I knew it was a match made in weird, blog-post heaven. Or something. And I know the scalloped J. Crew shorts are a bit overdone by this point, but I still love them and think they’d be super flattering on my stems. I love that scallop details are popping up all over everything now. I’m curious though, do you think nude shoes give the impression of longer legs even if they are ballet flats? Not that I’ll be spending $450 to find out.
Last night I had the pleasure of attending my first baseball game of the season (I’m really slacking) with several girlfriends from work as part of a “thank you” from our company management for being hardworking members of the Philanthropy Committee. We sat in the first row of the 3rd baseline, right next to the Ball Girl, from whom I even got a signed card to give to Boyfriend (oddly, he was not enthused). There’s really no point to this little story other than that I just wanted to say I had a really good time and that I feel really lucky. Just a mushy bit of gratitude to start your Wednesday morning.
What’s something you’re grateful for?
