That’s what I told myself when I bought this shirt for work. It’s really comfortable, has long sleeves and breathes really nicely because it’s lace. Also it’s not boring, which is hard for an article of clothing when it has to be a solid color.
Shirt: H&M | Necklace: Thrifted | Pants: Kohls | Shoes: Payless
Also my shoes are brown. Because there is not dress code for shoes and I’m a rebelrebel. Today we’re bouncing back and forth in errands to the Emissions Testing place and the DMV and then I work, so you get this super compact little post. Hope your Saturday is better than mine. Although since you don’t get to spend your day in the car making stupid French jokes with David, I have my doubts.
Man guys, let me tell ya, being a fashion blogger comes with it’s own set of woes. For reals. Like the fact that it now gets dark at 4 pm out here in the great NW. You want to know what’s really hard to do after its dark? Taking fashion blog pictures. So please, bare with me here with these cruddy pictures.
The single full body shot that wasn’t completely awful.
My sad attempt at showing you I was wearing brown boots with black pants. (A big first for matchy matchy Kels!)
My OMG is this really going to work? face.
What follows is a selection from my silly face pictures because I’m using a webcam album:
Shirt & Jeans:Express//Sweater:Target//Boots: Lucky Brand//Scarf: Charlotte Russe
Yeah, maybe next Saturday I’ll remember to get dressed before it gets dark again…maybe.
Milkshakes are very high up on the List of Foods My Stomach Doesn’t Like. However, milkshakes are even higher up on the List of Foods Capable of Fixing Grumpy Moods, so I’ll make an exception every other week or so (I know, I know, it’s a problem). Monday wasn’t a particularly bad day, if you don’t count the atrocious doctor visit (which I don’t count, since I’d like to just pretend it didn’t happen. Be grateful, because if I wasn’tpretending, this post would be full of stories about how incredibly unprofessional and inappropriate he was. But I’m pretending), but the second I swallowed the last bite of the stir fry Monsieur cooked for dinner, I knew.
“Babe, I’m going to need a milkshake tonight”
And thus, the story of how Monsieur and I ended up putting clothes back on after settling in for a Monday (opposed to the pajamas we had been wearing. Jeez, guys) to venture out for milkshakes.
There are several places around town for milkshakes, and one happens to be in walking distance. It isn’t our favorite, but it is in…walking distance. So that place usually wins out.
It’s mocha salted caramel flavored. Pretty fantastic, I’d say. Not as chocolatey as I usually prefer, but very sweet. I alternated drinking it with sipping on Monsieur’s, which was a classic chocolate.
And all was fixed.
Also, for all the doubters out there about my ability to throw on jeans and a sweatshirt, I give you proof:
Sweatshirt: Fred Meyer, Jeans: Gift, Shoes: Toms, Scarf: Vintage
I’m so hipster even my shirt has glasses. True story, Stripes asked if I added them on. I didn’t. I’m actually constantly debating taking them off him. I’m pretty sure Fredrickstein has perfect vision.
Early* this morning Sequins, Stripes and our good friend Plaid all piled into the car and headed over to the Skagit Valley Yearly Tulip Festival to look at some flowers, have some lady bonding time, and take a bajillion pictures. Also, side note, Sequins definitely drove us home. Because she’s awesome like that. Check out some of our pictures! The titles, if you hover over them, will tell you which one of us took it. Enjoy!
This is what happens when I don't remember I zoomed my camera in to take the previous shot!
Shirt: Sojourner/ Vest Scarf & Shoes: Thrifted/ Shoes: H&M/ TIghts: Gift
Shirt: Target/ Jeans: Gap/ Shoes: Toms/ Sweatshirt: Aerie/ Coat: The North Face (seriously awesome raincoat….if you’re in the market for one, this one is great!)
*So only two of us (*cough cough* Stripes and Plaid) thought 8 am was early…Our lovely Sequins is much more adjusted to such grown up hours and was bright eyed and fully awake by that point in the morning. The other two of us needed some more wake up time and coffee.

Ok, so I was totally planning to do a post about driving from school to Seattle (a drive I have done at least 100 times in the last 5 years) and I had planned it out on the drive BUT last night’s concert was soooooo amazing I’ve decided to through a post about it in here and save the driving post for tomorrow. So here are my concert highlights:
-When everyone first got to the arena, they were given a super dorky bracelet. About 10 minutes for the show started while they were setting up the final instruments and stuff a sign came on telling us to put the bracelets on. And then, when the lights went off, all the bracelets turned on an glowed!! It was like being apart of a giant Christmas tree. They had some sort of computer program that let the bracelets light up on beat and everything. SO COOL.
-Chris Martin smashed a guitar! I’ve never seen anyone do that before so that was pretty awesome.
-SO MUCH CONFETTI. SO MUCH.
-And this was the best part. For the encore, the band surprised us by coming into the stand IN MY AISLE! I was 10 feet away from all of Coldplay!!!! I don’t think I’ve ever screamed quite like I did when I realized what was happening, cause they’re only my favorite band, you know, no big deal. And, can I just say, Chris Martin’s arms are uh-mazing?! I actually had noticed them on a close up on one of the screens while playing piano…boy is built! But this was undoubtedly the coolest part of the show! The tech crew even brought up a piano and everything. I still cannot believe that happened and I’m pretty sure I’m still feeling the residual adrenaline.
This is the picture I took of Chris Martin (and his sexy arms) when we was right next to us! He's in the pink!
All in all it was an awesome show! I had a ton of fun and the band did a really good job mixing old stuff and new stuff…they did songs from every album they’ve produced, which I really liked. Now, I just want a private show where they play my perfect set list so they will do all the awesome songs they skipped 😛 A girl can dream!
Also, I realize this shirt breaks the rules, but how do you go to your favorite band’s concert and not get a shirt?!
Shirt: Coldplay Concert
Real Shirt: Target
Anyone else ever seen Coldplay live? What kinds of effects did they do in past shows? I’m dying to know because they seem like they really pull all the stops!
