Weekly Wardrobe: Maroon and Grey

Sweater: J. Crew/Similar

Hey guys!

How was your weekend? Mine ended up being pretty low-key. After having a crummy day at work on Friday, I spent the night in cuddling the cats and watching bad TV(America's Next Top Model, anyone?). I also spent a large portion of Saturday lying on the couch watching bad tv, and then at long last, cleaned my house! It was much, much needed so I'm glad to have gotten that done.

Saturday night I went and got a burger with a friend, and then we watched Be Kind Rewind, which I had never seen before. I gotta say, it was pretty delightful!

Sunday I woke up feeling kind crummy, but decided to persist since I had brunch plans. I whipped up a pitcher of Bloody Marys with homemade pickled veggies, and also made bacon, potatoes, and eggs, which were topped with avocado and salsa. My friend enjoyed brunch quite a bit, but I felt so crummy that all I could do was drink some water and nibble on some potatoes.

Well, turns out, I've come down with a bit of a bug, so I'm not feeling too hot right now, but hey. That's how the cookie crumbles. Hopefully I'll make a speedy recovery.

In other news, I'm super obsessed with this fun printed tights I picked up a couple of weeks ago! They're a little over the top, but I've been loving wearing them with my Fleet Collection dress, which you may recall from this post. I love dresses like this that you can accessorize differently to change the whole look.

I'm also totally in love with this darling little Hand Stamped by Ali necklace from Ali Oesch. It's such a fun little detail to add to any outfit.

Speaking of Ali Oesch, don't forget to enter the giveaway I'm hosting right now with Ali Oesch Jewelry! You can find all the details here.

Anyway, that's all for now!

Til next time!

  1. You're sick too? Ick. I've been coughing my lungs up for days now. Hopefully both of us recover soon! Being sick is the worst! :/

    I'm always so happy when someone says they've watched Be Kind, Rewind, because it's one of my very favorite movies! Such a feel-good watch!

    I adore that dress, by the way! That color is perfect on you!

    1. Thanks, Elyse! I seem to be on the up and up. I had a nasty stomach bug, but seem to be much better, even though I still can't stomach much more than rice cakes. I hope you feel better soon, too!

      I want to watch it again. I fell asleep for a few minutes (story of my life) and missed a few bits, but totally adored it!

  6. aww no that stinks you got sick! the exact same thing happened to my best friend this weekend- he was all ready to go out on Saturday, and then while putting on his shoes he was all "forget this, I'm staying in to watch Lady and the Tramp" haha. I hope you feel better soon! And what super fun tights- they look really cozy too!

    1. Thanks, Marlen! Being sick is totally not my fave. Stomach bugs are the worst. I did also enjoy some Disney movies while I was laid up though!

  11. Awww, I'm sorry you were feeling sick, but hopefully you feel better by now! I am cringing now because it's "sick season" and I really, really don't want to get sick AND be pregnant. But I rarely get sick, so I'm hopeful that the bugs will all pass me up.

    You look fantastic in this dress! I love how versatile it is, and I WANT those tights! They are pretty amazing!
    I've never seen Be Kind, Rewind either. But now I kind of want to watch it.

    1. Thanks, lady! I hope you skip sick season. I've fared well so far since this was a stomach bug or possibly food poisoning. I really need to get a flu shot!

      Also, thank you so much! They're kind of the best. I wish I could figure out more outfits to wear them with!
