You know I’ve been staring at this blank page going on 20 minutes now. Easter Egg to Mostly Black? Scratch. Joke about my flower pin and return of cold weather? Nah. Story about how I hit snooze 1 too many times? Been there, done that. Maybe I should just call it the Thursday Effect? With the weekend practically here {if I keep saying that maybe it will magically turn into 5pm on Friday}, my mind has shut off and is no longer willing to work/blog/function. Maybe I’ve overdone it with the studies and short circuited my blogging ability?


How about the story about the extremely large and delicious molasses iced cookie I just devoured. Yeah, let’s go with that. Guys, I think this is what heaven tastes like. It was straight up awesome! I don’t even care if it was probably 1,000 calories. It was that good. So good that now, I think I’m addicted. It’s my new {way too fattening} favorite afternoon treat. Just typing about it is making my mouth water all over again.

Pin It!

  7. this is such a terrific spring look--the cardigan and layers for warmth but the exposed ankle to prove that it really isn't winter anymore...you always look so perfectly polished.

  9. YES, thank you, I'm so glad I wasn't the only one with major blogwriter's block today. Seriously sat in front of my post for forever and just gave up. You look way too cute to worry about words, tho. Really heart those shoes.

  10. Amazing how a flower can make pretty much ANY outfit more fun. And some foods are just worth every single calorie. For example, the bacon cheddar ranch fries at Checkers may be solely responsible for my love handles... and I'm completely ok with that.
    And now I want fries... and a cookie.

  11. i've been loving your outfits this week. this one is super cute too, this is one of my favorite color combos. doing black, white and a pop of bright color is pretty classic but doing it with gray instead of white is more interesting IMO!

  13. "When in doubt, talk about cookies" is pretty much a fool-proof life plan. This is such a sleek look — it's really perfect for this time of year!

  23. Now you've got me wanting cookies too! I'm such a sweets addict. lol. Cute outfit by the way, love how your sweater gives the outfit a bit of pop. I also love your flower- despite the fact that it's black, it's still eye catching!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Although the black flower is a strong contrast to the magenta sweater, it's balanced with the grey shirt and black pants so it doesn't shout out "look at this flower". You know? In a good way. :)
    And talking about (and eating) cookies is always a good thing!

  25. I adore this outfit! I think the writing might be the hardest part of blogging (okay - that makes sense now - it's the whole point) :)
    I want to eat one of those cookies!

  28. I SO, relate! I was just actually trying to write a post and it took WAY too long. Glad to know that I'm not alone & thank goodness for fabulous cookies. And I'm loving your adorable outfit, fab touch with the skinny belt + flower pin. Happy weekend. xx veronika

  29. Hahaha. I love that. I have days when I go through 5 different drafts and end up with something stupid like "I wore this.. Heyo!" You succeeded though. Cookies are always a safe topic.

    I love the color and length of your cardigan! And that flower pin is so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Goodness this outfit is awesome! I have that exact cardi in gray...I feel like I need to hunt it down in a color, now! And loving the slim cut pants.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Goodness, please do not talk about cookies like that. I want one so bad now!!!! hehe Anyways, you look super cute. I love your trousers! Your cardigan is one of my favorite colors too. ^_^

  32. Love these pants! I don't ever wear pants unless they are denim because I can't seem to find any that look good on me. I'm planning a pant shopping day next week, hopefully I'll find something equally cute:)
