It sure doesn't take much to make me a happy camper. I went out with some of my colleagues last night. At first, I wasn't thrilled at the choice in location, but the little Irish pub called Merlin's Rest turned out to be a nice treat. They serve Pimms! Yummy! What's not to love about an adult beverage filled with strawberries, cucumbers, green apple and orange slices and fresh mint? I fell in love with this drink when I was in London years ago. It's just such a hassle to mix a single drink at home. I could have stuck a straw in the pitcher and sucked the whole thing down myself. Easy to guess where I will be on hot, lazy evenings this summer! : )
Today I went to J.Crew to return my (neon) jewelry and to exchange my Sperry Top-Siders--one of the grommets came out on the first wear! I really didn't see a whole lot of things that I wanted to try on, but my hubby was with, so I didn't feel like I could take my time. I looked at the pink and navy color block cardigan that I love online. It was already sold out in my size at that location, so I didn't try it on. My thoughts? Beautiful colors, but such a light-weight fabric for the price! I did grab a cream/black striped tee and, as luck would have it, someone had returned a Schoolboy blazer in tipped linen in my size. Fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on, so that came home with me, too.
After leaving the mall, we stopped at a few thrift stores. I bought only one item: a pair of J.Crew chino shorts in that super light (shell?) pink color from maybe two or three summers ago...in my size...with the tags still attached...for $7.99. Yippee! At the cash register, I learned that they were an additional 50% off. $3.99. Score! Now it just needs to get warm enough to wear them!
I'm thinking about going to another mall tonight; I hate sitting on the couch on the weekends, even though it is abysmally cold and rainy here today--perfect for snuggling on the couch under the blankets with my mini dachshunds. Maybe there's time to do both!
Here are my past few OOTDs
Hope you all enjoy your weekend, and, as always, thanks for reading!
