Bad Blogger. No Biscuits.

This past week has been a little chaotic.  Not bad.  Just a bit crazy.

First, it’s been really busy at work.  Second, I’ve started trying to ride my bike to work a couple of days per week, and since I hate riding after dark if I can avoid it that has meant being VERY focused at work.  Thus the two outfits I have for this post are pictures taken on my walk to the bike shop when I suddenly realized that I hadn’t taken pictures of my outfits yet.  Definitely not my best pictures.

IMG_2711The first was an opportunity to show off a cool new purse I got.

This purse is too much fun – black stripes, pink almost everywhere, spikes, and a tassel as the icing on the cake.  How can you not love it!

These pants fit so well.  Comfortable and soft.  I actually have them in 3 other colors.  If I could buy them in a full rainbow, I would.

IMG_2745This outfit was one I saw immediately when I found the top at Marshalls.  My husband tells me it’s not, but to me this is about as preppy as I get.

  • Navy Cardigan (Marshalls)
  • Striped Top (Cynthia Rowley, purchased at Marshalls)
  • White pants (Coldwater Creek)
  • Pink necklace (old)
  • White sandals (also old and being replaced due to a complete lack of arch support)
  • Pink Purse (Vieta, purchased on Little Black Bag)

I had been looking for a navy cardigan for some time, one that was light and airy.  When I saw this I knew I had to grab it.  But the top was my real prize; great spring colors, great colors for me, and a nice loose cut.  I think I’ll go for my boot-cut pants next time.

I keep hoping that with the bicycling to work 8.5 miles in each direction, 2-3 times per week, I will lose some weight.  So far, I’ve gained.  I don’t quite know how that happened, so I’m just ignoring the scale for a while.  It hates me.

Anyway, I will try to get back into taking pictures this week.  I have some cute new ideas and outfits to show you.
