Happy St. Patrick's Day!





















OUTFIT #4 - SAN FRANCISCO
GREEN SHIRT - Victoria's Secret (similar)
BLACK VEST - CAbi
MOTORCYCLE BOOTS - BCBGeneration (similar)

For some reason it seems so much easier to clean someone else's house rather than my own.  I have to seriously motivate myself to clean up by inviting people over (but once I get started cleaning, I become slightly insane and will end up doing it the entire day!).

Today I visited my girlfriend, Shiny, who happens to be pregnant.  She's supposed to be on "house rest" (not to be confused with "house arrest" -- though it is kinda similar) so I tried to be helpful by cleaning up and cooking her food.  She in turn let me paint my nails and took photos of me.  Thanks, Shiny!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day I of course wore green.  Because I thought I was going to go to Princess Sparkles' class and a play group (which I ended up foregoing to hang with Shiny), I wore something comfy (or as my best friend, Plaid, said, "kinda 80's").  I know I've said it before, but I love a vest!  It's perfect for hiding imperfections!

So far the clothing part of my 30 for 30 has been relatively easy (uh, yeah...cuz it's my first week!) but I know it's going to get harder as I go on.  By the end I'm gonna have to ask all of you to help me come up with more outfits, and hopefully it'll be easier for you than me, kinda like cleaning someone else's house!


PINK CUFF - Made by my Mom
NAIL POLISH - Avon in Jade

p.s. isn't that the cutest floral arrangement?  Shiny's friend made it out of carnations!

Nice outfit--kind of biker-lite. Nobody would be afraid to take you home to meet the folks.

I love the way you wore just a touch of green. You look comfy, but definitely cute at the same time! I adore that cuff. Does your mom have an etsy shop or something?

Haha I totally read "house arrest" the first time over, blah I can't imagine being stuck inside all day, especially since spring just started breezing in! Love that nail polish color by the way, it's so happy

Love the nail polish! I keep seeing that shade lately. It's not one I would've picked for myself right away, but it's growing on me :)

I think once you make it through your 30, you'll be surprised at how many different outfits you're able to put together.

rachel said...

I have to be in the mood to clean, which is not often. LOL.

Write it in Lipstick
