Spring Outfit Post #1

So it took a good couple of months for Spring to arrive (in the frozen tundra of Minnesota), but now that it’s here I’ll dust off my computer and do a couple of outfit posts. The post today will be #1 in a mini series, as I have some catching up to do! It’s safe to say I’ve been MIA the past 6 weeks or so, but all for good reason, I assure you.

This first outfit was one I put together (kind of recently) when I decided to break a long couple weeks of not going out (by going out, of course). I love metallics and polka dots almost too much, I think.

cardigan: H&M. slim jeans, hoop earrings, and metallic belt: White House/Black Market. polka-dot top: Aqua (at Macy’s). Olive boots: Via Spiga

I am a huge dork. 

I missed this blog. I should get better about posting.

That’s all for now…more clothes later.

New Orange Jacket

This is what I wore last night to dinner with a friend. We went to O’Gara’s, a pub in St. Paul. It was a bit greasy, but the fries were good. It has a lot of Irish-Minnesota history and character to it, which adds something to the experience.

I love wearing my new orange jacket. I think as a Minnesotan, outerwear available in stores here is usually much too boring for me. Hence my purchase of this side-zip jacket. I like pairing it with my pink Doc Martens rubber-soled wedges (my favorite shoe purchase of 2012 so far).

First photo I tried to take of myself is below, but it wasn’t working out too well so my photographer jumped in (aka my roommate).

Thanksgiving update: My first two pumpkin pies of my baking life just popped out of the oven. I am super proud, even though the recipe was just from the side of a pumpkin can and I don’t  even know yet if they turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!
