Happy Monday! It’s a very happy Monday over here because I’m coming off a weekend in the sun! Matt and I spent the last few days in Tampa for spring training. Some people (and by that I mean wives) get a spring break, others get a lot of baseball haha. I had forgotten how much I missed the sun though! I’ve barely seen it since moving to Chicago and didn’t think it bothered me much until our first day at the beach. Turns out, my skin decided it didn’t miss it much – I have the worst sunburn!
Sleeves are the platform wedges of 2017. So trendy. Either that or clothing designers are getting really bored of the basics. Everywhere I look I’m seeing fluted, ruffled, or bell sleeves. If today’s outfit is any indication, I’m feeling it.
Goodbye coats, hello light sweaters. I’m off to Los Angeles on business for the rest of the weeks. It’s supposed to be 70 degrees when I land today! Meanwhile, I’m trying to figure out how to dress to go from 33 degree Chi to sunny SoCal. I’m thinking I’ll just freeze on my way to the airport. Does anyone else do that when they travel during winter?
I know that Valentine’s Day can be met with mixed emotions. Over the years, even I’ve changed my tune on it! At this point in my life, I get excited to be all lovely dovey with Matt. Gag, I know. That said, we don’t buy into the holiday in a stereotypical way. We use it more as a day to show our appreciation, less to shower each other with Hallmark cards or boxes of chocolates in heart shaped boxes. Regardless of how you feel about the holiday, there’s definitely something about this post to truly love. It’s a $1,000 giveaway to Nordstrom!
