Take One, Day 12 :: Red Plaid

I kind of worked myself into a corner today, because it didn't rain so I couldn't repeat the boots, and the socks would be weird with any other boots, and I didn't really wear any jewelry, so the plaid shirt it is! I wanted to try and wear something other than red with it, so I was happy to find this blue skirt in my closet after a few failed attempts with other various skirts.

I'll admit, the pearl bauble is totally Atlantic-Pacific inspired, something about a nicer necklace with a farmer's shirt just makes me happy. And look! Braids yesterday, Carrie Diaries hair today. I normally don't love my hair after braids but it turned out pretty well, considering.

Okay, bonus outfit time! I had BB snap this as we were leaving for our date night - I'm taking him on a mystery date for Valentines and it's just driving him crazy that he doesn't know where we're going. It was getting a little cool, so I threw on a sweater and boots over my original outfit. It's practically like an extra take one.

Take One, Day 11 :: Cardi Party

Hey, everybody! It's a cardi party! My sister actually made this amazing music video a few years ago where she and her friends sang a song about a cardi party. Sadly, it's been removed from YouTube and now Old Navy can probably claim they came up with the saying on their own. Anyway, after saying that I sometimes I feel frumpy fab in a cardigan yesterday, I want to take it a little less teacher today.

 Also it rained, so I bebopped around town in leggings and rainboots. I'm aware we're bordering on dangerously close to leggings as pants territory, and I wish I could apologize for that, but I can't. Like I said, it was raining. My underpants radius is deep and wide on days like this. If I could wear my giraffe onesie in public on days like today, I would. I also wish I could apologize for not taking any pics without my jacket on, but we did the world's fastest photoshoot today as it was sleeting in our faces.

 Enjoying the rain. And the cold. Clearly.

Side note: I asked y'all on Twitter what you do with your hair when it's wet. I don't often dry mine, so it's usually in a low bun or french braid while it dries and then I curl it the next day. But since that gets old, I'm always looking for new ideas. This double french braid bobby pin monstrosity is bordering on Heidi territory, but I don't mind it so much.

Cardigan, still haven't looked at the tag.
