First, I am loving so many things about this week!! On Saturday, my dad came through Albuquerque on a road trip, so I got to spend Saturday evening and Sunday morning with him. We had dinner, checked out an Irish pub, played some blackjack (I kicked his butt!) and had Dunkin' Donuts the next morning. (As a Southern transplant to California, my dad drinks Dunkin' Donuts as often as he gets the chance. Fun fact: There are no Dunkin' Donut shops in California. Until this military base gets one, that is.)
As if seeing my dad wasn't great enough, I'm leaving for Columbia tomorrow, which means I'll get to see this girl and this girl and this girl and so many more of my Mizzou friends! #lovelovelove
Back to Albuquerque, though.... I decided to stop by the mall and see if I could find something to match my awesome yellow skirt I bought last week. (Y'all remember how excited I was about that find, right?) I didn't end up getting anything to go with the skirt, but I did buy a really cute navy blazer at Forever 21 to add to my ever-growing "young professional" wardrobe. Also, thanks for all your comments and fashion advice last week! I've decided I want to get a charcoal gray pencil skirt suit this summer; let me know if you see a cute one anywhere! Now that that's decided, I have two more fashion questions for you:
- What other color blazer should I get (in addition to my navy one)? I'm thinking something pastel or bright, just to be fun, but I still want to be able to wear it with a lot of different pieces.
- What the heck should I wear with my yellow skirt? I'm thinking light blue and/or white, inspired by this fabulous outfit, but I can't think of anything else that would look good. Help! This is it:

My favorite purchase of the day, however, was a pair of these nude flats from Payless. They were already ridiculously cheap and comfortable, but the first store I went to didn't have my size, which meant I got an additional $4 off! So I scored these flats for $12. Considering how much I'm planning to wear them, they'll probably end up costing under 6 cents a wear. (That was an arbitrary number. I don't really know; it will probably be even less haha.)
Okay, enough with the clothes! If you know anything about me, you know I'm not good at or interested in fashion, but this job transition thing has really gotten me excited about shopping. (Then again, you might be thinking: But I do know you at least a little, and I didn't know that, a la Suri. But I'm confident most of you probably know I'm the anti-shopping kind of girl, unless it's for Sims expansion packs or groceries.)
Now, on to the pins! I've made a couple delicious Pinterest recipes during this past week that I'd like to share. My comments on each meal are included in the pin's caption:
And here's one final thought to leave you with for the rest of the week:
Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what everyone else is pinning and loving today.
