friday

Photobucket

Here is what I wore yesterday, I had the day off, but didn't do too much with my time. I went to get my nails done for the first time in a while, we are going to a wedding later today and I wanted to get a color to match part of my dress. I also never matched my nails to my lipstick before, I'm really diggin' it! In an episode of Mad Men, all the secretaries are doing a testing of Belle Jolle lipstick, and in explaining why she chose the color she's wearing, one girl said sometimes she matches her lipstick to her nail color. It sounded a bit silly and limited as far as what color you can wear on your nails (I like to get crazy with colors sometimes.. and lipstick dosen't really come in sea foam green.. and I don't know how I would look in that anyways) but I quite like the idea. Especially since I tend to wear coral lipstick, I never tried coral nail polish before! But I like it!

The remainder of the day I spent cleaning and wanting for Jeremy to get home from work at 6, then we had some dinner and got ready to have some boys over for a game of poker. Before Jeremy got promoted we were doing these games every friday night, just low stakes stuff with some boys from work. He had been working all later shifts until this week so he wasn't around to play, and he's good! I'm okay, I hold my own, but I don't think I have a very good poker face and I'm always too scared to bluff!

Any who, I changed for the game (I like to show a bit more leg, distract the boys a bit hehe) But I wore this all day when I ran some errands and got my nails done and all that. This striped button up is probably my favorite one in my closet, love the pattern and it is oh so super soft. I got it at an estate sale, a really old house with tons and tons of boys clothes! I miss going to estate sales.. it sucks having to save all your money!! The pants were little boys communion pants probably, that I got at the thrift store. Best kept thrifting secret, shop the little boys section! For some reason the pants fit like a dream, you can also find cute sweaters that are often shrunken and cropped on us full size ladies. Cute little tee shirts, as well as button ups! I love these ones, the perfect shade of Pete Campbell blue (more Mad Men talk, Jeremy and I have been re watching because we are going through some sort of deficiency.. Mad Men come back!!!!!) which is probably my favorite suit color. I'm gonna get my boyfriend in a blue suit one day, I think it looks so classic, and looks really great if I wear yellow! My shoes are from etsy and my belt is thrifted, and thats all folks!

Awwwwesome. I love the coral and the stripes! I like little boy's shirts on me, although often they're a bit funny around the neck...
