Happy Shortest Day of the Year!

Good morning! So how's everyone doing without one less hour of sleep? I have church at 9am so that really means 8am today. Fantastic. I set out everyone's clothes last night just to make sure we wouldn't run into any frantic "outfit drama" as I so lovingly call it in our house. With three boys you wouldn't think there'd be too much "outfit drama", but let me tell you, my 7 year old has quite an opinion about what he wears already. I secretly think it's hilarious but most of the time it just drives me nuts because I thought by having all boys I'd escape all the "outfit drama" everyday. Surprise! =)

So we kept busy this weekend...on Friday night we stayed in and just relaxed, which was nice. On Saturday I slept in (till 7:30am...and then laid in bed till 8:30am with my kids coming in and out of my room watching cartoons I had turned on for them). It was so nice to have a morning "off". Then I went to my friend's jewelry party which was lots of fun. Have you ever heard of Stella and Dot jewelry? They have the CUTEST stuff! So cute that I signed up to host a trunk show in April so if you are interested in getting anything from them, or want to see an online catalog, let me know! You can order right through a link I email you without having to be at my party in person. I picked up this cute necklace (it's a long one):

Adorable, right?!

After the party I headed out to Anthropologie to return a few things with my boys in tow. I promised them if they were good we'd stop by the fro-yo place that I LOVE on the way really I was gonna go even if they weren't good. They were actually pretty good at Anthro and really did earn their treat it turns out. I didn't really try anything on so it made the trip into the store a little faster. I did throw this cardigan on over what I was wearing just to get an idea of what size fit me best:

The small was really long in the arms so the X-Small would be the way to go for me. I would consider it a little shorter than the average cardigan and the colors definitely aren't as bright as I expected them to be, but all in all I liked it and it would go with a ton of things. Wish listed for sale!

I also threw this on over what I was wearing just to see which size I liked in it too:

Turns out this is more like a parachute than a top...holy cow it's baggy! I did have another shirt on underneath so I couldn't get a true feel for the fit, but I would definitely go with an X-Small based on what I saw. The color is seriously gorgeous!

I thought these two pieces would be pretty cute together:

After our little adventures we came home and it was almost bedtime already. Time flies when you're having fun! =)

Thought I'd post what I've been wearing the past few's what I wore yesterday:

-Bianka Blouse (Blue motif)-Anthropologie
-Tank-Old Navy
-Ultimate Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Anticipation Heels-Anthropologie
-Ring-Forever 21
Earrings-Old Navy

And here's what I wore on Friday (I was having an anti-jeans day):

-Dress-Old Navy
-Cardigan-J Crew
-Earrings-Forever 21
-Ring-American Eagle

Hope you all have a great Sunday...back to the grind tomorrow!


  1. That cardigan is really beautiful. I saw it when I stopped by a store yesterday. Didn't try it on but I took some time to admire it on the table. So pretty!

  2. I love it all! Your OOTD's and your Anthro picks. Yay!

  3. That gold necklace is lovely! And good to know that that blue top runs a little large...I've been trying to decide whether or not to order it.

  4. The necklace is super pretty! And I like the pattern of your blouse.

  5. Stella and Dot jewelry is so fun! I think that necklace looks a lot like a far pricier version by Van Cleef and Arpels. As usual, I adore your OOTDs!!!!

  6. Good boys, I have a daughter and I hate dragging her to do returns. Love the Bianka Blouse. I waited to long for sale and then the print ones are all gone in my size :-(

  7. Yumm... froyo! Do you like Pink Berry? It's my absolute favorite, but I have to go to NYC to get it because there aren't any in New Jersey.

    And I'm loving that cardigan. You are absolutely right -- it would match so much. Fingers double crossed it sticks around until sale!

  8. This is a beautiful outfit!! I am in love with your necklace! I am also on the hunt for a necklace in this color I have got this cardi and LOVE LOVE the color!! This necklace looks great!! I hope to find it. This too is looks like it is not on the website =( and we do not have an Anthropologie here in OK =(...sad I know. Wish me luck!!!
