February Pin-spired & Weekending

Monday, February 2, 2015

Happy February! I recently saw Mix and Match Mama talk about doing a February Pin-spired linkup - I'm not one for taking "fashion" pictures (a little out of my comfort zone) but I figured this would be something fun to participate in! Since I only heard about it a few days ago, I don't have too many pictures but here are 2 items I was pin-spired with this month.

I love the look of a great plaid shirt and vest. It's been pretty cold (for Florida) so I've been enjoying wearing my fall/winter clothes... if only I could dress more casual for work.

Plaid Shirt (similar) / Vest (similar) / Jeans / Bag / Shoes / Necklace / Bracelet / Watch / Sunglasses

This was the first time I curled my hair and it looked decent in YEARS - had to document it on the blog

I also love a good sweater-over-a-button-down combo. I recently paired a gingham shirt from Old Navy (no longer available) with a loft sweater (similar) for work one day.

Here are my inspirations for the outfit and jewelry combo.

Now onto our weekend that was filled with shopping, relaxing and cooking (super exciting, I know). Friday after work I went to a networking event at a local upscale bowling alley. I didn't do any bowling, but it was fun hanging out with everyone!

Had to get a picture from that night since I never go out (with my friend Caitlin)

Saturday, we went to town to go shopping. We had lots to look for (birthday's, the office redo, etc.) and Old Navy had $10 khakis! I had to grab a pair. I've never had skinny khakis so I'm excited to see how I can style these. I also picked up this shirt, which was on sale. 

On Sunday, I did a lot of cooking for the Super Bowl. We aren't really into NFL football but we enjoy watching the commercials, the half time show and it's an excuse to make "fun" food I wouldn't usually make. On the menu - ham & cheese sliders, pigs in a blanket, skinny spinach & artichoke dip and cookie dough, brownie cheesecake to wrap up the meal. It was super delicious! 

Some notes about the Super Bowl:
- The commercials were super sappy this year. So many dad commercials, I was tearing up pretty much every commercial break
- Even though she's crazy, the Kim Kardashian T-Mobile commercial was pretty funny! Nothing funnier than embracing what people make fun of you for
- The half time show was fantastic! I was surprised at how good Katy Perry did - all her props and outfit changes were great!
- The Missy Elliot performance at the half time show was probably my favorite thing of the whole night
- The game was pretty close the whole night which was also surprising for the Super Bowl - makes for a good game!
- The interception by the Pats at the end and then the fight?!?! OH.MY.WORD. It's getting real...

Linking up with Shay and Biana 


  1. All of your looks were great, but I'm dying over the food! OH MY DELICIOUS! And the last shot of the pie? OH. MY. WORD. Thanks for linking up! xoxo, Sheaffer :)

    1. Thanks Sheaffer! The food was delicious. Can't wait for leftovers tonight ;)

  2. That cheesecake looks AMAZING!!

  3. Totally agree that the commercials were way too emotional this year! I'm not supposed to CRY during the Super Bowl!! I did love the Budweiser puppy one, that's always a favorite :)

  4. You nailed that puffer vest outfit! Love it and the navy longchamp too. I was in the kitchen for most of Super Bowl Sunday too – your treats look delish :) Just started following you!

    1. Thanks! Glad you liked the outfit :) Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the goodies you made for the Super Bowl!
