I wore this dress to my company’s holiday party on Saturday night. It’s one of the pieces I picked up on my latest trip to Anthro. My sister and I both tried it on and both ended up loving it. Too bad we don’t wear the same size like we used to while growing up! She could have worn it to her holiday party on Friday night, just in time to trade it off to me for Saturday. Being an adult is so hard.

I threw my boyfriend a surprise birthday party this weekend. He’s been wanting to get together with some of his friends from out of town so I brought them all to him. We had such a great time celebrating with good friends. Another thing to celebrate: Me being able to shop again. I bought a few things so far but am trying to reign it in a little until after Christmas. We’ll see if that actually happens!

I may not live in the Windy City, but it sure feels like it with Sandy on the way. Why do I always end up wearing short dresses on the windiest days? I’m going to have to start watching the weather channel before I get dressed in the morning. I’ve been stocking up on the essentials and am planning to hunker down for the next few days. Everyone stay safe!

Despite the fact that all of these pieces were bought in this decade, I felt very vintage in this outfit. This skirt is one of my favorite things (along with raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens). Sometimes I can’t believe that it came from Forever 21. A cute, comfortable, affordable skirt? Julie Andrews should probably think about adding that to her list of favorite things.

The girl who shampoo-ed my hair at the salon yesterday told me that I look like “those classy celebrities with the blonde hair and fair skin.” Of all the ways I’ve been called pale, (and trust me, there’s a lot) that was the nicest.
There’s the girls who complain to me about being “so pale” and “needing a tan” right before adding, “but it looks good on you!” And how could I ever forget the classy gentleman who said “you’re the hottest pale girl I’ve ever seen.” Let me tell ya, he is probably making some lucky girl really happy with compliments like that one.
But that shampoo girl made me leave the salon with just a little extra pep in my step. Take that, all you tan people. Rachel at Winning Image thinks I look classy.
