A very late post for a Friday evening! It is 10:30 here in Minnesota. My peeps Erika, Gretchen and I are up in Duluth, MN at The Ellery House. It is a lovely little B&B that Ben and I stayed at last year. Check out the yummy eats on the menu for us!
The late post is due to miserable traffic and getting lost in the dark once we got to Duluth. I was quite pleased that the Ellery House does have free wi-fi!
Today was Casual Friday!
Does anyone else go through what I do in the morning? I walked into the closet, grabbed a pair of jeans, thought they were meh, but tried it with a top anyways. Went in search of a different top, tried it, and decided that it might look better with a different pair of jeans. Changed the jeans, didn't like them, decided that maybe a different top would work. Not so much! Finally decided to ditch all the jeans and grab a pair of matchstick cords in Kelly green that I got from JCrew last winter. Ahhh. Much better! If you hate these, it could be a problem because I have the same pair in hot pink!
The top was a purchase from Target last year. Nothing fancy, but comfy and casual.
I am wearing 2 strands of beaded necklace today. I must be in a bead mood because Karyn is torturing me with a new website that I cannot buy from! Check out Etsy! I got these a long time ago from American Eagle. They are fun and brighten up a black top.
The Madden-ing part of my Friday? Not the traffic or the rain, silly, my shoes!
Dear Steve -
You have redeemed yourself! No squeeking here!
These shoes are , well, a tad bit dominatrix, but quite comfy! They are Steve Maddens that I got last year at DSW. I went to DSW in search of new black boots, and found these. Anyways, I do love them for the somewhat trampy/vixen look. You should see them with this denim pencil skirt I have!
I have an item that got away to share with you today! My sweet Ben came downtown to take me to lunch today. Afterwards, he walked me back to my office. We decided that a trip throughcthe shoe department at Off Saks would be a good idea. LOL!
Aren't these precious? The price tag was frightening - $129.99. There was a time my friends!
I decided today that I will keep track of how much money I have not spent. It may make me feel better after a year. If I can figure out some fancy blog tool, I will keep a running tab posted. So far, there was $28 not spent at Target, $49.99 at Marshalls and this $129.99...add it up, round it up, $208 saved so far! Not too shabby!
This tired girl needs to get some sleep. Tomorrow's ensemble might be interesting! After the wardrobe changes this morning, I kind of just threw a couple pair of jeans and a few tops in the suitcase!
