Things Are Getting A Little Harry

This year will forever be remembered as the years Harry Potter took over my wardrobe. After my jaunt in Wizarding World, I’ve been rocking the crap out of my Gryffindor House sweater- I wear it to work, I wear it while shopping, and yesterday, I even wore it to the spa (it was cold out…so cold we even had our first snow! How wintertime in Hogsmead of us!). I’m kind of addicted to this sweater.

Yesterday, I met up with a friend for lunch (it’s amazing how much time I have for friends when I’m not doing both school and work! I’ve seen more friends in the last week than I had in the last three months) and we exchanged some pretty epic gifts. Imagine how thrilled I was when I opened this little gem?!

Yeah, I was beyond excited to be holding my very own golden snitch necklace! (Shout out to my friend Ashley who handcrafted him for me!) You bet you’re going to see him pop up on the blog from time to time. I can’t wait to figure out how I can make him be a work appropriate accessory. She also got me the fanciest snuggie out there…check the poms on this guy!

Yay! Goofy Face Picture!!!

And so it has begun. Pretty soon you’ll be seeing me rock a robe and tie like it’s no big deal, I’ll be working my time-turner like it’s my third year at Hogwarts, and I’ll have a magic bag where I keep all my possessions stashed away…or maybe not. Guess you’ll just have to keep an eye on the blog to see just how far bad my Harry addiction gets. But be sure of one thing, I’ll be wearing my snuggie as the coolest blanket cape ever for the next six months straight.

Happy Sunday folks!

Office Costume

My whole transition into business-casual-land hit a new milestone yesterday…it was time for the office Halloween Costume. Ooooo ahhhh, I know, what was I, you ask? Well, I rocked the crap out of Hermione. Ohhhh yes, I pulled out my Scotland wool sweater, brought the wand into public, and learned to tie a tie all in order to pull off this level of awesomeness…and I’s pretty sure it was a success.

Mostly, though, I was just pretty dang excited to wear my HP gear all day…in public…without judgement…mostly. There were a few interesting looks shot my way when I walked into the grocery store on my lunch break but, despite the weird (probably jealous, let’s be honest) looks,  it was a blast being a wizard. If only I could take wizarding up as a full time profession…that would be the life!

As a side note, Dave (yep, Marci’s Dave who also happens to be my lunchtime photographer) and I had never considered the the fact that there is a parking garage attached to the building we work in…this was just the thing Marci and I dreamt of in months past, trudging through puddles and downpour just to snag a picture or two! How we didn’t realize there was photo shoot gold 30 feet from my desk is beyond me (derp moment, by chance?), regardless, it’s pretty awesome knowing we’ll never have to walk in the rain again for a lunch time photo shoot. It’s the little things in life, folks. Wands and parking garages are all it takes to live a very happy life.

How was everyone elses’ Halloween? I hope everyone had fun and ate some yummy treats! Annnnd mad props for anyone else who was a wizard, too! Making the dream come true on Halloween at a time.

My Favorite Sweater

Sweater:Hogwarts (Wizarding World of HP)//Shirt:Traget//Pants:Gap

Oh boy folks, I’m in love. How could I not be? It’s officially chunky sweater season and I’m finally able to break this woolen gem out as often as I please. How often is that? If I had my non-socially conforming way it would be everyday; more realistically it’s seeing the light of day about once a week (I’ve gotta experiment with fashion at least a little, right?!). Since I can’t wear this sweater everyday as I would secretly like, I decided it would be fun to write a poem dedicated to my most favorite article of clothing.

Sweater, Sweater, oh my Sweater,
You keep me warm, no matter the weather.
Your woolen knit
Doesn’t itch one single bit.

Sweater, Sweater, oh my Sweater,
I cannot think of a garment any better.
You hale from the Diagon Ally
And won’t be found on any regular Jim, Joe, or Sally.

Sweater, Sweater, oh my Sweater,
I love you more than any old Irish Setter.
I love you more than my iPhone 4,
I love you straight to my core.
Sweater, Sweater, you’re MY Sweater.

What can I say? I’m pretty ridiculous…and pretty not gifted at poetry. Eh, consider this amateur hour on the blog and have an absolutely lovely weekend!
