last friday night...

Well, a.k.a yesterday night, but I just heard that song and it's kind of stuck in my head (and it was technically a Friday yesterday). Ughhh I promised I would put up a post of my outfit yesterday and I didn't! I was just too busy. Good news is I managed to take pictures of my outfit, so here they are!

vintage necklace
jcrew button down
martin&osa cardigan
 old navy shorts
 minnetonka moccasins

Wearing this cardigan makes me miss Martin&Osa! I don't know how many of you ever saw it, I feel like there weren't that many stores and it wasn't around for long, maybe a year? It was an offshoot of American Eagle aimed at a slightly older crowd (maybe mid-20s) and they sold really cute, classic, slightly nautical-inspired basic pieces (and had really great sales). Then American Eagle decided to close them in favor of a little kids store. Really? My friend Jenny and I were kind of depressed.

I know, wearing something black and ankle-height on my feet probably isn't going to make my legs look any longer. But I love the shoes, I liked the look of them with this outfit, and I figure I'm tall enough that its not the end of the world if I wear a pair of shoes that aren't technically lengthening...

I am in love with this necklace! It's another one from my Grandma Linda in Iowa, and I just love the mass of chains and the intricate clasp (as witnessed by me wearing it in the front, not the back). My mom loves it too, so there's a chance I won't be able to bring this one back to school with me... or I could just steal it, like those shoes? We shall see

So yesterday I had pilates in the morning, a phone interview in the afternoon, and another in-person interview in the afternoon as well. Then I went home, grabbed some food, and headed out to volunteer greeting visitors and taking donations at Caponi Art Park for their Shakespeare Festival, always a fun, chill job. I should be doing that again tonight, assuming the rain stops. We were promised 2 days of sun, and they can't even give us that?? Ridiculous.

After that I went over to a friends house and a couple of us went out to see Bad Teacher, Cameron Diaz's new movie. My suggestion would be wait until it comes out on DVD - it had it's funny bits and the characters were good, but the plot overall was just ehhh. So yes, that is all. Now I really reallyyy need some lunch, just spent the morning volunteering on the carousel and haven't eaten for quite a few hours. Hope the weekend is going well for everyone!
