Love Was Just A Glance Away, A Warm Embracing Dance Away, And...

Sweater, top, & braided bracelet: Nordstrom; Skirt: Urban Outfitters; Flats & necklace: Forever 21; Bracelet (top): H&M


Cake - Strangers in the Night (Cover)

Happy Monday, blogger bees! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another beautiful week. So far, June has been a pretty busy one. I have been running around and working nonstop, so much so, that by the time I get home all I want to do is knock out. It was nice to be able to wake up to no alarm clock and to finally have a day off to catch up on all the things I love to do. My day consisted of: a morning of guilty-pleasure TV, an afternoon Zumba workout at the gym, and an evening of quality blog time. Nothing too terribly exciting, but, I cherish these quiet times when I get to just be alone and chill out, especially since my daily life is always just go, go, go.  Believe it or not, I still like to dress up on my downtime. This outfit is a perfect example of something I'd wear on just a normal day out. I've never been one to run errands in sweatpants (God forbid!), or... jeans and a tee (mainly because I detest denim). Karl Lagerfeld said it best, "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants." Haha, that one always has me chuckling.

Long time no comment ;( But I am back and hope to dive into my fave blogs once again!

I really like the sweater. I have been very into flowy things lately and feel they compliment every body shape

As for sweatpants -- I must admit, I wear them......alll the time! I just can't help myself! I find a nice pair of nice fitting sweatpants (Think PINK) and I just swoon over them. Especially when they are fitted with a plain tank LOL. and jeans and a tee? Lets just say you will never see my closet hahaha, ohwells, we can still be blog buddies ;)

Talk to you soon!

cute skirt!

But for the record, I disagree with you on sweatpants. Of course, that's probably because I play soccer all the time. I would say the majority of my grocery shopping expeditions are post soccer practice or match (sorry, fellow shoppers, I'm already out of the house, it's just convenient that way). I think I've developed an immunity to being sweaty and/or unpresentable in public.

On the other hand, it's always WAY more fun to look cute!

I have managed to miss a few of your post but for some reason blogger seems to always act stupid and I'm never able to get on your blog..boo!!! I hate those days when you just can't seem to have time to relax and all you do is work. My glad you were able to have a day for yourself. And that quote is great. I rarely wear jeans only if I feel lazy enough to wear it.

I love the jewelry and the zipper down the back of the skirt. I'm really into exposed zippers! I have one in my newest red dress collection!

Cute outfit!

I know exactly what Karl is talking about with sweatpants. It is one article of clothing that is tragic to see anywhere that is not one's home or the gym.
