Yesterday almost felt like Sunday since I took the day off but had to go to work today! Thankfully, today is still Friday and the weekend is in sight! I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika, and Narci for Friday Favorites and April for Five on Friday!
I placed two Old Navy orders to spend Super Cash that I earned when that was going on. They arrived yesterday. I am returning two things and definitely keeping two things. This top is a question mark. I LOVE it...but I tried it on on Sunday (I know, I was so impatient waiting for my order to arrive that I had to try it on in store) and it felt tight and restrictive in the arms. It's a boxy fit though, so sizing up would make it look sloppy. When I tried it last night, the arms were fitted but didn't feel as tight. I have been eating healthier and I worked out six days in a row (probably a record for me). So I'm wondering if this shirt is just made with slightly larger arms or if I've just slimmed my arms down a bit.
I know it's not a great picture. You can see it on the site here. On the model, the arms are loose, which makes me feel like I should return it. So tell me, do you like it (as far as you can tell)? Do you think the arms will be an issue if I stop working out as much (which is bound to happen)? Do you think it's just made differently than the other one? Orrr do you think the arms should be loose so I should definitely return it?
This sweater is perfection. It is sooo ridiculously soft. It has a v-neck. When I tried it on in store, I was kind of nervous, but I was wearing light jeans practically the same color as the sweater and flats. I loved it with leggings and boots though! Still can't find it online, but I've seen it in multiple Target stores (oh yeah, it's $25!). They also have a dark gray and a blush pink color.
Fair scones. Do they have these scones or this scone mix anywhere else? It's made in Washington, and they sell the scones (that are filled with jam and delicious) at the Washington State Fair. My coworker went on Monday night and brought scones on Tuesday for the entire office. It was amazing.
Suede skirts. So in elementary school, my best friend and I thought we had awesome style. We once bought these patchwork suede skirts that were tan and rust and brown and olive all patched together. They were horrible. They were either from the kids section at Nordstrom or Limited Too. I think we wore them with turtlenecks. But suede skirts are back and I'm kind of loving them. Or at least this one. I've also seen bloggers rocking denim skirts with the buttons down the front and I think they look cute...but I'm so not ready to accept denim skirts back into my life.
Michael and I have been drinking hot chocolate every single night. It's amazing. We did this last year around Christmas time, but I guess we decided to start the tradition earlier. Yesterday it was dreary and rainy all day, so it was perfect to come home after my final dress fitting and have some cocoa.
This weekend I have an appointment at Nordstrom to figure out how I'm going to have my sister do my makeup for the wedding! I've also got my returns to make to Old Navy. Other than that, we'll probably just be home. Do you have any exciting weekend plans?
