[lusting after] the entire spring collection at anthropologie. i held off on this shirt yesterday in lieu of the brocade charlie trousers (in grey) which i am obsessed with and can’t wait to wear with every single color under the sun, however, it was not easy. i tried on about 30 shirts/skirts/dresses and literally wanted to buy them all. after adding up all my “must-haves” and deciding that it simply being a wednesday was not an excuse to spend $450, i just bought the pants. i’m proud of myself for making this budget-savvy decision, but you better believe i went home and pinned everything i tried on. this shirt came dangerously close to coming home with me; i still can’t get over how awesome stripes and florals look together.
[instagramming] a picture of my new arm party! i’ve been on the hunt for some fun bangles and dainty bracelets (check out the druzy bangle i’ve been lusting after for awhile now) and i finally found the two on the left yesterday at anthropologie (on sale for $9.95 each! a steal!) i love the little bit of sparkle and the pop of teal in the second one from the left. the cream bangle is kate spade (similar) and my watch is michael kors. nice little left wrist arm party if i do say so myself.
[watching] so many guilty pleasure shows! but last night jesse and i watched a new show starring kevin bacon called the following. we had tivo’d it last week and he finally convinced me to watch it last night and it.was.so.good. it was definitely super suspenseful and intense and had some gore as well, but i can’t stop thinking about it. basically there is a serial killer who has developed a cult following to carry out his “master plan” while he is behind bars and an fbi agent (kevin bacon) who is determined to solve the puzzle. it’s kind of like the saw movies (less gory but similarly twisted) meets any crime drama. we watched the second episode on my computer because we hadn’t set up a “season pass” with tivo (don’t worry, we remedied that) and i am anxiously anticipating episode three. it’s not too late to get hooked! it’s on fox on monday nights at 9pm. here is a more in-depth synopsis if you’re interested.
[crafting] a little sneak peek at some valentine’s day cards that might be coming your way soon! i love valentine’s day, not because it means a fancy date with jesse, but because i love any excuse to gorge on chocolate and wear a combination of pink and red in the same outfit. i do like to have a reason to send out homemade cards though, so be on the lookout!
