This Weekend: High School Reunion

Sorry for the late posting, work was pretty busy yesterday!

So this weekend… Friday we went to the Nationals game and it was pretty awesome! Nats beat the O's 4-2 and we had great seats. I went straight from work so wore exactly what I did all day.
Saturday I ran lots of errands and did work around the house. I wore my orange “Kate” dress from J. Crew, silver hoops, one silver necklace from H&M, silver cuff and brown stacked flip flops from J. Crew. Hair was washed, conditioned and air dried and let loose. Just a bit of tinted moisturizer, mascara and lip gloss.

Saturday night was my high school reunion.

Picture 0191The reunion was okay. Maybe 40 people in total, including spouses. None of my friends that I still talk to ended up coming, no bitter rivals or high school sweethearts, but our class was so small I knew everyone there and was happy to see all of them. The classmates who organized the event did a fantastic job.

Sunday I got to my friend's house around 10am for her closet clean-out and then we headed to the mall to find her some new basics (black pants, some work jackets and knits). I got a couple necklaces from The Limited (their sale jewelry is an additional 40% off and I ended up with four necklaces for less than $30) but there's little else for me to try on at this in-between stage. We went into two maternity stores but I am not that size yet, one was overpriced and had little over a size Small, the other one had the A/C broken and was a mess so it stressed me out just being in there. That night we had dinner with family. For all this, I ended up in the same outfit as Saturday just added my Express pareo as a scarf.

    I agree with Mrs. M–a summary about the wardrobe makeover, plus before and afters and why you tossed what would be amazingly helpful! love your blog!

    LOVE the blue dress.

    You should totally do a post with pics about closet makeovers that you do. Wardrobe before, pieces you kept or tossed and why, wardrobe after, and how to pair the remaining pieces!!
