Acceptable for Work

...I took these pics during my lunch hour and you could say that cardigans are necessary to my job.(freezing office!) If it's not a cardi or sweater, it's scrubs with an over sized scrub jacket. Which do you call worse?

Seriously, there wasn't a single cloud in the sky and temps were near 70. Absolutely beautiful day in which I did not want to return to work from my lunch break. This kind of sunshine also dilutes the fun pinkish, coral hue of the gingham but that's a more than fair trade off!

Just 24 hours ago there was snow on the ground? how is this normal for VA? Or, really anywhere? It may not have been much but it was snow and ice. wait, is this a weather report? whatever, today marks spring!

Until I can wear this button up with cut offs and golden legs...I'll be crying. It's really the whole reason I own a shirt like this. Sure it looks fab layered under a sweater or tucked beneath a cardigan but all in all...I can't wait to be wearing it with shorts and flippy-flops, open with a fun T showing! I'm totally "one of those" that whine for summer just as soon as spring starts ;)


guess who's finally using those Carrie Underwood tickets?
this girl! It's tomorrow night, I'm so excited :D

How cute are you?! Those boots are killer and you look adorable! I wear scrubs to work everyday, not sure if I would be down with actually having to choose an outfit every morning. I suppose I would if I had to :-)
Hope you have a great weekend chickadee!
