Friday Fancies #4: Football Frenzy

Thanks to everyone who entered my reader appreciation giveaway. If you haven't yet, go here.

I'm all over the internet today. Thanks to the lovely Kellie of The Yuppie Files for featuring my fall favorites. If y'all don't read her blog, you need to. She's absolutely fabulous. 

AND my post from Monday made it on the Fashion Blogger Weekly Round up over on Fashion Treatment

Now. It's time for

Now obviously y'all know that the belles in the SEC (and across the South) take gameday fashion seriously. Dresses. Hats. Pearls. Heels. It's like a fashion show, where everyone wears the same colors.  I went to The University of Georgia (how bout them dawgs?) and I've accumulated quite the red and black collection over the years. Now that I'm out of school, I dearly miss saturday's in Athens. One thing I don't miss though is the standing up for hours on end. Sweating. Gross. Now I get to enjoy the games from the comfort of my couch or a booth in a bar. As I was putting together this outfit, I didn't realize how formal it is, but oh well. Better to be over dressed than under dressed right?

Another Thursday Randoms

  • Some days you just need to write a blog post in bullet form. So here you go. 
  • I stayed at work yesterday until 10 pm. I am DRAGGING today, let me tell you. 13 hour days are for real, no fun. EVEN when drinking is involved.
  • I am also suffering from a minor mid week hangover. what the heck? "I don't got time for that"
  • I finally broke out the sear sucker for Sear Sucker Thursday! But now I remember why I so rarely participate (this skirt is too short for work. oh well)
  • I went to a CRAZY huge UGA reception at Union Station last night. It was awesome.
  • Outgoing President Michael Adams (President of UGA) really needs to get his teeth whitened. Come on dude, you make a lot of money, you are making us look bad. 
  • I really miss college. 
  • I REALLY don't know what to do about Grad School.
  • I am beyond over this hot weather that has suddenly invaded DC. I get that it's officially summer now, but seriously? I am not ready for heat indexes 100+, for reals, not okay.
  • I wore a dark suit yesterday--> worst decision of my life
  • Have you ever swam in a public pool? Something about it just kind of irks me. I feel like they are full of diseases and urine. BUT there is a pool like 3 blocks from my house, and I'd really like to start swimming laps after work. But... eww, I don't know if I can do it. 
  • I love jambalaya. (and plan to have some for lunch today, just thought you should know)
  • I forgot to put on foundation today. I just forgot. My make up routine is slightly extensive but I have the exact same routine for my face. just about every day. primer. concealer. foundation. powder. blush. more powder. Today I did primer (stila bronze). then cheek stain. then powder.WTH?  I don't even know. I'm tired.
  • I might go get gelato for a post lunch snack. I've been thinking about my Sunday trip to Pitango all week. 
  • ALL week I've been thinking that the fourth of July is on Wednesday (meaning next week is a very odd 4 day week). NO wrong. We have a whole other week in between. NOT FAIR.
  • I really want to take a "mental health day" soon... but I want to plan it to be AWESOME. DC peeps, any suggestions on random day time activities?
  • OH. So I had a huge tech victory yesterday! I figured out how to make a blog button! OMG I know right? I'm so impressed with myself y'all have no idea, well... actually most of y'all probably do. If you want my button you can get it here...


  • Does anyone want to do a button swap? leave a comment or email me at 
  • I. AM. SO. EXCITED. FOR. FRIDAY. these weeks just keep getting more and more painful
  • Pretty sure that's all I've got for you today. Maybe I'll double up tomorrow since I feel like my posts have been lacking the last few days. Summer cocktail and a Friday Fancy? I think yes.
Have a great day lovelies.

Two Years Later

Two years ago today I officially became an alumna of The University of Georgia. It's hard to believe it's really been two whole years since I walked under the arch, rang the chapel bell and turned my tassel to have my two degrees (Political Science and Spanish) conferred upon me. In honor of this anniversary I wanted to share with you a few things I've learned about life and myself since my time as an undergrad.
  • Life can really  kick you in the butt sometimes
  • No matter what happens though, you'll get through it so keep smiling, because this too shall pass.
  • I never thought I would get used to having to wake up before 8 am everyday.
  • I never thought I would yearn to go back to class.
  • When it rains, it has a tendency to pour.
  • You can't pick who your family is
  • You definitely can't pick who you love
  • But you can pick who your friends are, so pick wisely. No point in spending time with people you don't enjoy your company and vice versa.
  • I actually enjoy reading for fun (what a novel concept.) get it? ha-ha. it was too easy. sorry
  • Creative outlets are necessary.
  • Walking does wonders to help clear the head.
  • Budgets are really important. You feel even better when you stick to one.
  • You're really not as old and wise as you think. 
I know there are a million more, but my coffee refuses to kick in, and I actually need to go work. So. Have a lovely day ladies!
