Shine and the Sand

Back to your regularly scheduled programming!
If you didn't read yesterday's post, please check it out and keep your content safe!

On a happy note, the weather's been fantastic all week long! If you know me well enough, you know that this is the kind of weather I can dig. I don't mind being freezing cold, but it's not preferred. And severe heat and humidity? Gag me with a spoon. This skin and hair weren't made to deal with such conditions. But give me mid 70s, sunny, and medium humidity, and I'm a happy girl.

This particular outfit was completely inspired by Collette's Weekend Jean Lover post. Granted, this outfit wasn't worn on a weekend, I still loved the idea of cuffed jeans and a cute sweatshirt, spruced up with some classic warm-weather heels. 

When: Wednesday, March 23

sequined sweatshirt: New York & Company
collared tank: Motherhood
jeans: Old Navy (I cuffed them)
- I haven't fit into these jeans in over a year! -
wedges: Lower East Side (swiped from Mom)
necklace: Handmade by Whitney
scarf as headband: Spotted and gotted from Rochelle's closet!

Love it when Husband takes photos from this angle. He makes me look tall and skinny.
Yes, please!

The sand by my office parking lot looked so inviting. I almost wanted to take my shoes off and squish my toes in it! But, we're nowhere near the beach, this is a college campus (so the chances of broken bottles or pee remnants are high), and I actually liked these shoes way too much to take off!

Hope ya'll are having a fun weekend!
I'm home in VA with my family, playing Cranium, Apples to Apples, and cooking lots of yummy (and healthy) food!
