Skippy Says: At The Risk Of Sounding Annoying (OOTD)

Is it obnoxious to gush about how amazing my hubby is? It is? I'm sorry, I'm going to go ahead and do it anyway. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Yesterday was a particularly gray and rainy day. I woke up with the usual planned: some blogging, some gym time, and some work. But just as I was about to get up, Ryan came in suggesting that I stay home in bed and spend the day relaxing and watching crappy TV. And when I started protesting, he shushed me and assured me we could pretend it was my idea, because he knows that by nature I have to fight any idea that is his and not mine. Thata boy.

I took his my suggestion and had a pretty perfect pajama filled day. I ventured out only briefly to go to the grocery store to buy ingredients to make him his favorite lasagna. Because, you know, I figured he deserved it.

  16. There is nothing wrong with gushing about your husband, it's amazing actually! Better to hear about how happy you are than to hear how miserable you are haha, glad you have such a great guy. Love this look and all the warm winter-esque colours. Beautiful styling!

  24. Love the detailing on the bodice, and the pop of color from the tights. The skinny gold belt is perfect! The day you described is so ideal...I'm jealous.

    As to your question about my cap sleeves "issue", I should have been more specific and indicated I was referrinfg to those particularl cap sleeves, not cap sleeves in general.

  25. It's true (at least 99% of the time :))

  27. I. want. that. dress. Seriously. If you see a crazy person sprinting towards you with a loony look in her eyes, it's probably me. And I'm probably about to steal your dress.
