Happy Friday, Stylenation! Jude had a vet appointment this afternoon, so my fella and I decided to both take the whole day off. The way things have been going for me at work lately, I definitely needed a day off, and fella hasn't been off since July, so he was more than overdue. First, we went to Hot Doug's for lunch. Hot Doug's is pretty well-known here in Chicago, and I've never been there and not had to wait at least half an hour in line. I had hoped that going during the week would be better, but apparently lots of people are off on Fridays, so we still had to wait. But it was well worth the wait for some chicken sausage, andouille, ribeye sausage and duck-fat fries (thank goodness I had my annual cholesterol test earlier this week instead of, say, tomorrow). We just got back from the vet, and we're headed to our neighborhood theater to see The Social Network in a little bit. I love days off.

Having said that lots of people seem to be off work today, I should note that my neighbor is off. I didn't realize he was home until I saw him looking out his back window after I snapped these pictures. Woops. He knows I have a food blog, so maybe it's not too weird that I'm taking self-portraits. Right?
There's nothing too exciting about this outfit - just a casual outfit, perfect for running around town. But keep in mind, prior to joining Stylenation, I probably would've gone with jeans, a t-shirt, my gym shoes and a hoodie. When I started contributing to this blog way back in February, I think I noted that while I have no problem dressing for the office, casual wear is a little tricky for me. So I think I've finally gotten a good handle on that. But come to think of it, I'd probably wear this to work on a casual Friday too. I'm wearing this sweater with my Gap long & lean jeans and an adorable twill pea coat that I picked up at Target earlier this fall.
What's your perfect day off?
