So sorry for the lack of blogging this week! I've had an eventful several days! I left work a little early with several of my coworkers on Friday so we could drive up to a casino in northern Minnesota to an Air Supply concert. One of my coworkers is getting married in May, so it was a bachelorette party. We stayed overnight and had a fantastic evening enjoying snacks and beverages, playing Songburst (I was the youngest one there by 20 years but still was able to identify almost all of the lyrics - what can I say? I'm an old soul!!), and laughing until the wee hours of the morning. Even though I'm significantly younger than all of these women, I can't tell you how much I love them all. They're so much fun and I get along with them all swimmingly. We headed back to our town early the next morning, and I spent the rest of the day hanging out with Kevin. On Sunday, we went mini-golfing with my parents, my brother, and his girlfriend, which was a blast. On Monday night, Kevin and I went house hunting again and I'm pretty sure we found The One. Keep your fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly for us! I have been home sick with some awful virus the past two days (although I've felt sick since Saturday) - terrible sore throat, fever, coughing, wheezing, headache, congestion, plugged ears...yuck! I hate missing work, and we have so much going on right now, but I really have needed the time to rest. It's been pretty miserable.
Okay...enough of that...onto the outfit!!
Top + Leggings: J. Jill | Sandals: Target [Top 10 item] | Necklace: Forever 21
After years and years of being a strictly-silver-jewelry-wearer, I have finally started to really embrace gold as well. For me, silver used to be the typical go-to for jewelry, but this spring, gold is the color that I can't get enough of. I love how it looks with all neutral colors (hello, 95% of my closet...), and I think it also looks striking against reds, pinks, and blues as well (hello, the other 5% of my closet...). This outfit features two gold pieces that I am really enjoying wearing so far this spring: my gold beaded necklace (whoops, you can't see it all that well) and my gold sparkly sandals. The necklace has pastel pink, blue-gray, and gold beads, and I love how it looks against this cream tunic (another spring-time favorite). These sandals are my absolute favorites because they're not only comfortable, but they go with everything and the sparkles add a little glitz to any outfit.
It was actually just really windy, but the pose and my hair make it look like I was doing some dramatic hair flip, haha.
