By late afternoon we decided to simply meander about town with zero set plans in effort to thwart my newly emerged ocd-ness. Ever notice how just when you want to throw something on and leave quickly, the weather decides to throw its own wrench into your plans and cause a little chaos? Cool weather means a coat, and warm clothing in my closet usually consists of black and grey which I am oddly tired of at present (give me 10 minutes and I'll be back). In an effort to shed the winter blues aka a coat - I threw a longer sleeveless knit cardigan and brightly colored scarf over the usual basics and felt my mood brighten right away. Here's to discovering more ways to bring out my winter hippie!
If you were walking behind me you'd see straight basics.
The knit vest might take you to another place
(if you're into granny chic, ahem val?)
-but the hint of scarf is really where the fun really starts.
A touch of funky brighter jewelry adds a little more zip.
And ta-da! You're good to go...the bright flowers help too, of course.
Suffice it to say the rest of the day/evening tried its best to turn into a gongshow...we decide to go to LA for dinner and a movie only to be met by everyone and their mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, uncle and grandparents attempting to do the same thing. After several failed attempts to find a place to eat without a two hour wait (drive around and waste gas much??) one of our fave restaurants makes a place for us and the server tells us she'll get us out in time for our 10:45 movie because we left our phones in the car in effort to just enjoy dinner without distractions (imagine the thought). Cut to scene and her watch must have stopped because we get in the car and it's 10:55. The theatre doesn't seat after the movie starts, so we get a voucher and go home spent.
Talk about having the ocd whooped out of you - no wonder I didn't take that tree down yesterday. Yaaaawn. Hope your weekends were smooth sailing...or skiing :)
