A rainy spring day here. But again, it's not 40 degrees and rainy, so I'm keeping my mouth shut. (But wasn't it supposed to be *April* showers? I know, I'm such a literalist.) But garden is looking so green. The buds on the peonies are just about to burst.
So it was definitely a great day for the Library Cardi. I have worn this so much that I think I will seriously consider the light pewter the next time JC offers us %-off sale, if it's still in my size. (And if it's not, *clearly* that's a sign that I should not have it.) And I am noticing, since I got the beechwood Michelle, that a lot of the outfits that I put together with one would look equally good with the other. Good to know...especially as clumsy as I am
Typical Monday in that I spent walked the puppy (albeit after we drove back from the bus stop), went to school to help in class, ran to the store, and then came home to work. Today I hit Target because virtually none of M's short sleeve tees from last summer fit him, so I had to do some quick replenishment. Didn't buy anything for me (yay me) unless you count the Tostitos summer sweet & spicy salsa - looked kinda cool, with berries in addition to the tomatoes & spice. If it's any good, I'll definitely post. I did eye this very cool coral bib necklace but I was in line and it just wasn't worth it. Am I on a shopping ban? Not exactly. I would really call it more of a shopping "break" as ban sounds too severe. Plus, as I am hearing echoed across JCA-world, after the orgy of spending induced by the Mickey crewpon, I'm just not feeling the need to consume right now.
So you all know what a crazy nut I am about the J Crew tissue boyfriend tees, specifically the vneck. In fact, on my last Mickey crewpon day, Jill, my fave SA, commented, "You can't come in here without buying one of those, can you?" Oops... Ok, I did get quite a few with the crewpon, but on sale for $24.50 plus the 25% off? This last one was in breeze. I had tried it on earlier and opted for other colors, but this one kept calling me. I figure that my collection is pretty much set except for (1) black and (2) a cool pink like Light Petunia (did you hear that, Jenna? Pretty please?) And quite frankly, considering that I was 10 lbs heavier last summer, those tees - the AT Loft ones which I got in L, are just too wide on me now. of course, the M's were too tight/bulgy last year. Not that I'm ungrateful. But the tees need to be replaced and that's a fact.
Much as I would have loved loved loved to wear white jeans today with this, I just didn't have the mental energy to do white jeans on a day where it is so wet, rainy, muddy. So dark jeans sufficed. And the Target Pearl Cluster necklace and cuff link earrings. (which I clipped to Polyvore, so now I can use them in my set!) And then this ring at right, that I got in Aruba last year. It's a fun piece - the band is actually elastic with more of those beads pictured on the top of the aqua shell. Very summery. And yes, now I can clip it to Polyvore! And yeah, still need to do my nails.
