This Post Needs a Title
Do you guys ever get something new and shiny and you just can't wait to wear it? Over and over again? That's how I feel about this necklace. While Rad was off at her conference this weekend, our friend C. and I did a little local shopping. We went to Hazel, a wonderful stationary and jewelry shop in the neighborhood, just so I could get a birthday card for a friend and a note card to send my pen pal Grandma. I ended up buying Fella a new watch to replace the one he lost last weekend, and decided I'd treat myself to this necklace too. I know, wasn't I just saying I'd cut down on the shopping? It only cost $17, and look, I've already worn it twice!
I wore this outfit last night on a date with Fella. Like good Chicagoans, we went out for some Italian beef and then saw The Mountain Goats and Megafaun in concert. Fella really loves the Moutain Goats, but a lot of people don't seem to have heard of them before. I told C's fiancée over the weekend that we were going to see them, and his response was "Is that a band?" It'd be cool if we were seeing actual mountain goats too, but a band is good. I really like them because their music is full of great piano, which was even more awesome live.

And here's what I wore to work today. Don't mind the odd, windy photo. I had to scurry out of the alley pretty quick, since some landscapers were coming through. Not embarrassing at all. Anyway, I ended up switching to my black heels because I felt like these shoes made my legs look stumpy. Or maybe I'm just not ready to see my legs just yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm wearing nylons to ease into bare legs, but it's weird seeing my legs in anything but dark tights. I'm sure I'll get used to it.
