it's gettin hot in here.

after all the dark office-y stuff i wore this week,
it felt nice to throw on some color.
unfortunately, my go-to yellow sweater is hot as heck.
not to mention the addition of socks and boots.
i'm borderline miserable and can't wait to
get into the car and strip down.
typical story...it's pouring when i leave the house,
sunny when i get to work.
only, after all the rain we've been getting, i really thought it was going to be cool and gray today. 
anyways, while cleaning out my closet the past few weekends, i finally found the belt for this sweater. i've worn it open here and here, but i also love it sloppily wrapped and tied. 

(sweater, store in l.a.; denim, true religion; boots, nine west)

muchos mahalos to poison of fashion is passion for the kreativ blogger award. not only can she throw together some great work outfits, she recently got her first
balenciaga city bag. i'm so J!

i'm supposed to share 10 quirks facts about myself.
boy, this is getting hard.

1) i'm a very, very loyal friend. i got your back!
2) dog lover. currently have a red siberian husky named foxy brown, and a terrier/chow mix named bo
3) love a jack & coke
4) don't get me wrong, i love desserts, but i would rather eat a second serving of food than have dessert
5) i would love to have a huge garden and grow my own things to eat. nothing more rewarding than that
6) i prefer blue ink pens to black, ballpoint over rollerball
7) i wash my hair first in the shower...what do you wash first?
8) my breakfast during the week is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, grape jelly preferred
9) i love pumpkin pie
10) my midnite evening snack: fage 0% greek yogurt with fruits

tell me your quirks:

  1. The sweater is a pretty shade of yellow. I love the bellowing sleeves and tight cuffs on the wrist. Well when you are not at the office wear the sweater with shorts and cowboy boots. :-)

    That always seems to happen to me too! In Florida, the weather can change like three times in the same day this time of year.

  18. What a cozy sweater. I like the change of color from the rest of the weeks posts. Your facts are fun and I love grape jelly too. I get voted out though with all the strawberry fans I live with.

  21. Oh my gosh, thank you so much!! I'll have to do some thinking about my quirks - ha! I'm loving that sweater and I'm totally with you on some kooky weather - Thursday it was 35 when we woke up and almost 80 by the afternoon, how on Earth can you dress for that? By the way, your hair looks amazing!!
