Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was loads of fun, but I could use another day to relax and catch up on sleep. In addition to hanging out with Rad, Fella and I went to a Super Bowl party with my friends last night. Since the Bears weren't in it, I didn't really care about the game, though I did win $25 in our pool, and had all kinds of tasty eats.
There's 2 things I don't own very much of: button-down shirts, and pinstripes. Yet this dress combines the two. I'm actually not sure why I don't have more pinstripes. They're a little more interesting than basic black, and vertical stripes must be slimming, right? Button-down shirts, on the other hand, don't always fit me right, and when they do, I don't like the way they look. For me, they feel too stuffy and professional-looking, though I'm envious of so many of you for being able to make a button-down look fun and relaxed. Thankfully I don't have either of those issues with this button-down in dress form.
I'm sure you're all getting sick of snow pictures - trust me, I'm getting sick of the snow! Fella and I were having a snowball fight last night when we got home. We started out playing with Jude and the other dogs in our building, but they got bored with us. Check out the mountain of snow behind me. It goes almost all the way up to the roof of the one-story coach house (put another way, it's almost as tall as me, and I'm 5'9)!
