Where to begin! Well, this weekend was a good one, if a bit wet. To be honest, these photos almost didn't happen. I woke up on Sunday to a gorgeous sunny morning, took some photos indoors for a recipe post I'm working on, and then decided to get all lazy. Well, as soon as I decided it was due time to take some outfit photos, it was pouring rain! And, boy, has this weekend ever been a rainy one. I was prepared to call it a day and forget about this week's outfit post, when all of a sudden the rain cleared up! So, I marched myself outside and took some photos while I could. You'd almost think it was a dry day looking at them.

Well, rain or not, I spent a good amount of time out and about this weekend! After working on some projects on Saturday, Katie and I met up for dinner at her (and now my) favorite Chinese food restaurant. When we parked, we ended up outside this building that was in the midst of being built. Since it was so blustery, the unfinished parts of the building were covered in tarps. Really poorly secured tarps. After sitting in the car for a moment, a big piece of the tarp came flying off the building, scaring the crap out of both of us! After dubbing it The Tarp of Terror, we re-parked and headed to dinner. We ordered WAY too much food and both ended up with leftovers that will last days.  After dinner, we grabbed some frozen yogurt, and then sat in the car giggling at my new favorite youtube video. Watch it. So good.

Sunday, my friend Michele and I went and saw American Hustle, and then did some shopping. I've given myself permission to beef up my wardrobe a bit because, guess what! I got a new job! Exciting!!!!!! The office I'll be working in is definitely a bit fancier than where I'm working now, so I'm trying to stock up on some good business casual pieces. I'm really excited to get start my new job in a couple of weeks!

The rest of my weekend was spent curled up in bed, laughing at my cats' goofy antics, and watching Scandal. So hooked.

How was your weekend? Did you get up to anything fun?

XOXO
Becca

    1. Thank you, Nicole! No, I'm leaving my current place. I'm pretty sad to be leaving all the awesome people I work with, but definitely excited to have a new challenge. Also, thank you so much! That's funny you say that about my hair because here I've been thinking it looks awful lately. I need a hair cut. It's been 6 months!

  14. That. Is. An. Interesting Skirt. I love how you are rocking the polka dots as well. My weekend went by in a flash but I did catch the ice dancing competition last night and could not stop thinking how Meryl Davis looks like Megara from Hercules.

  19. Congratulations on getting a new job! How exciting!! And fun to have a good excuse to get new clothes, haha! I love that now that I have a baby, I have a good excuse to get clothes-- I need more nursing-friendly options. Well... want. Ha! My husband doesn't argue much, though, when I say I need new clothes for that reason, so y'know. I'll use it as long as I can!!!
    Ah, that skirt is so pretty. I love it; the detailing is super cute! And I love your cardigan, too! You're adorable!
