(color) blockhead

 Good afternoon ladies,

Yesterday was Everybody, Everywear's color blocking day and I knew exactly what I wanted to put on for once. Then again it's always easier when I know I'm not running errands or going outside. Since it was a long office day I brought in my heels and wore them while I was at my desk. My leg was all kinds of sore when I got home but they still made me feel pretty good while I had them on :) 

Happy Wednesday!

almost patriotic

Good evening ladies,

I tried my best to look patriotic today. I originally planned on wearing the blue and white striped version of this dress but when I realized all of my neutral colored underthings were dirty I switched to the navy version.

Also navy-these great lapis earrings. I think they might be reversible (there is a silver lattice design on the other side) and I wish I knew who made them so I could get a pair in another color stone. 

Any plans for the holiday tomorrow? We get to take off and I've already told D not to wake me up in the morning unless my life is at stake :) Happy fourth!

epic bun, hun :)

Good afternoon everyone,

How was your weekend? We got hit by that fabulous "land hurricane" on Friday night and yet we still ventured out to Columbia on Saturday. Big mistake. Fallen trees, cars driving into ravines, electrical wires everywhere, lines of cars as far as the eye could see waiting for gas...I really did feel like I was back in south Florida. Except we never lost power, so I guess we got lucky in that regard :)

Anyhow, I figured a lot of people wouldn't make it to work today so I opted for casual and comfy. These pants wrinkled with just a glance and they've since stretched another 2 sizes so I'm hoping washing in warm water and a trip to the dryer will shrink them a little. Of course our washer/dryer isn't getting delivered today due to the widespread power outages so I guess I'll just have to wait and see. Good thing I have this cute non-stretching necklace to keep me company, right?

Last thing I want to mention is this fabulous hair bun contraption (btw I'm on an unofficial shopping ban as of today). I saw it on Juggling Chic's blog and I immediately had extreme bun envy. I promptly ran out to Sally's during my lunch hour only to find they were out of all of the big bun donuts. So I bought a petite blonde version and I love it! It feels totally messy going up but in all of 1 minute I have a perfectly shaped donut bun! Just thought I'd share :)

Happy Monday!
