Winter Whites

2014-01-16_0002

I met my mom for brunch at Metro Diner last week.  It was a frigid kinda day (apparently Florida has decided not to skip winter after all) and I’d thought it be a perfect time to try out a white winter outfit.

Wait, what?  White after Labor Day?

Yup!

Rulz schmulz, I say. Rules were made to be broken!  😉

I felt very crisp, cool and wintery. Even my husband commented that I looked wintery.  So, why again, was wearing white after Labor Day a no-no?  If you haven’t tried it, you should!

When I get something new…

I wear it to death!

My 2nd rain boot outfit in a week.  In my defense, it was raining cats & dogs that day and they came in VERY handy.  I have never been so giddy about rain.  I came home, not exactly dry, and my husband thought I would be unhappy that I had to go out in the rain, but quickly realized I was like a kid who just got to jump in puddles when I exclaimed, “my boots are wet!!” and had a great big smile on my face.  😀

Christmas (Eve) #whatiwore

These last few weeks, unless I’ve needed to dress up for a certain reason, I’ve mostly been wearing my pj’s or jeans & sweatshirts.  But on Christmas Eve, I felt like putting a little effort into my appearance.  Pretty much just a dressed up version of jeans & a sweatshirt, but hey, I look a little more dressed up at least.  😉

I tend to wear the same jeans & shoes over and over again.  And apparently earrings too!  😉

Thanksgiving :: #whatiwore

Yep, what I wore on Thanksgiving.  That is not a typo.  lol.  I am just getting around to posting this and it seems ridiculous, but I took the time to get my daughter to snap a few photos so I wanted to at least post them.

Sadly, these photos aren’t even from Thanksgiving day, but a couple of days later when I wore the exact same outfit again because I liked it.  😛

P.S. holding my phone is so cheesy, but I wanted something to hold and it was the closest thing I had that wouldn’t look totally out of place

That photo up there ^^^, I think I’m picking lint off of me, but I thought it was a good shot of my bun.  😉

Nothing like going to a concert to make you feel OLD

I love going out, but I have to be in the mood and just because I have plans, doesn’t mean I’m going to be in the mood.

We were kidless Saturday and as the day passed, I was excited to be getting dressed to go somewhere, but at the same time just wanted to curl up on the couch in my sweats and watch a movie with my hunny.

Nevertheless, we got dressed and headed to St. Augustine for the O.A.R + Cris Cab concert.  I didn’t get a photo of my outfit.  Why, I don’t know.  #fashionbloggerfail

This is what I wore though…

Going to a concert

It doesn’t look all that grand laid out like this, but just take my word for it, I looked cute.  😉

Once we got to the amphitheater, I was feeling the concert vibes and ready to have some fun.  We got there with 20 min to spare before the opening act took the stage.  It’s a small venue so getting to our seats didn’t take long.

We passed all kinds of people tailgating before the show and I thought it was odd.  I don’t go to a ton of concerts, but I didn’t remember tailgating to be commonplace.  Turns out, the tour is called the O.A.R. Tailgate Tour 2013.  Ha!  NOW it all makes sense.  lol.  And, although I think we were in the median age range of the concert goers, for the most part, it felt a little like we were at a frat party.

We usually like aisle seats (easy entry/exit), but it wasn’t necessarily the best choice for this concert.  Aren’t people supposed to just sit/stand and enjoy concerts?  Apparently you need to refill your beer every 5 min.  The aisle way was constantly full of people going up & down the stairs. Honestly, it was a little distracting and I took a mental note to NOT sit on the aisle next time.

Anywho, we were enjoying ourselves anyways.  Cris Cab was the opening act and he was awesome. He’s a young guy from Miami, FL and his music has a very chill, reggae, pop, hip-hop sound.

Then it was time for O.A.R to come on stage.  The crowd was going nuts!  I knew a few of their songs, but my hubs was pretty well acquainted with their latest album.  They were super awesome live.  They interact with the crowd and have fun with their songs.

Unfortunately the hubs had a massive headache so we dipped out early.  Which honestly, was okay by me.  I was definitely enjoying myself, but grabbing dinner and then going home, washing my face and crashing on the couch sounded just as good.

And that, my friends, is how you know you’re getting old. 😛

Blog slacker…

Whoops.  I started to write a Five on Friday post today and realized that my last post was one of those.  Where the heck did the week go?!  I haven’t really been THAT busy, but just preoccupied I guess.

Last Friday was the start of me getting back on the workout wagon so my OOTD’s looked a little something like this…

While this is bad news for my OOTD posts and made me not feel like blogging…on the up side, I burned 2,262 calories this week!  😉

I also decided to join the worst kept secret zombie flash mob!  A Zumba instructor in town puts together a flash mob of sorts to perform at the Zombie Fitness Kids run.  This is their 3rd year doing it and I wanted to join in last year, but heard about it too late and honestly it’s a little out of my comfort zone.  I’m a bit of a commitment-phobe and it requires you to learn the dance mostly on your own.  And, of course, I don’t just want to join in at the end of the dance, I want to go all out and do the whole routine!  With less than 10 days to practice, I have my work cut out for me!  I love dancing though so I knew I would regret not joining in even though it requires a lot of work.  Not only do I have to learn the dance, but I also have to figure out zombie outfit/make-up.  Here’s last years flash mob…

So, I’ll admit to being a blog slacker, but I think I’ve been a fitness winner…this week!  Now, let’s see if I can keep up the fitness part and try to get some blogging done too.  :oP

I’m off to the gym!!!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
