Hello all! Tired is the theme for this week, so I'm not going to say more about that. We are sleeping at 1 am on a normal basis now...it just seems like the organizing never stops. This weekend my dad will be coming over to start building our deck in the back yard. Chris is going to help him do that. But another project is going to start! I am excited about the deck though and can't wait to hold BBQ parties on it!
Yesterday I wandered into Anthro just to check out some new arrivals and tried a couple of things on:
First up, the Sugar and Cream Dress. I saw it in the store hanging near the front and it caught my eye. The first thing was the sweetheart neckline. I also loved the tea cups on the dress...very whimsical. The only thing is, I wasn't too keen on the fabric. Online says it's a silk, which perplexed me. The print itself is fun and informal, but mixed with silk...the feel of it is a little formal for something I'd wear normally. I loved the fit and think it's TTS. Typically Floreat runs a little small on me, so I was surprised the 6 actually fit fine. This might be something I'll consider on sale, but as cute as it was, I just wouldn't be able to get enough wear out of it.
The pattern and fabric intrigued me on the hanger, especially the back detail. Once I tried it on, I really liked it. I've been looking for a jersey cardigan for a while now and can never really find ones that look right on me. Most of them hang a little too much in the front. But the knotted detail of this cardigan in the front is adorable! I'm on a strict money diet right now, so I won't be taking this home with me. When it goes on sale, I'm going to snatch this one up. Btw, the size I tried on was a Small and it fit perfectly.
I've already mentioned how much I love my newly organized closet. And I know many of you have organized your clothes before to find things you've owned you totally forgot about. The top I'm wearing today was one of the earlier purchases I made on sale at Anthro a few years back. I don't wear it enough and I don't know why! Maybe it's because the boobie part is a little roomier than I'd like but I just love the polka dots.

Lastly, I leave you with my ridiculously dorky Fiance. We were unpacking some bathroom boxes last night and he found one of my Jessica Simpson hair extension clip ons! Don't ask me why I have them, I just do! I NEVER wear them though but he decided to clip one on, which made it look like he had a mullet! Ahhh...business in the front...party in the back? Nope...just silliness all over. The wifebeater he was wearing (which he normally wears at home anyway) added the final touch to his "OOTD". Haha.
