Inspiration Shopping

I need a new outfit. No, I really do. I'm not just wanting a new outfit. I need something super chic. I'm doing a little inspiration shopping (it's the new window shopping duh) online. This is what I want right now (I'm still looking for the best necklace ever):

Too bad my legs are short and my feet are small. I'll let you know what I end up with.

Neon Comeback?

I took a stroll through The Gateway today at lunch. I paused at one point to take a second look at a rack of clothes. Was that neon pink I just saw? It was, much to my alarm and dismay.

When I think of neon colors, I'm reminded of a guy from my highschool who regularly wore neon colored turtlenecks (highschool friends or lurkers reading this will know exactly who I'm talking about). Bleh! I also can't help but remember my "cute" black button-up shirt (I must have been about 9 or 10) with neon pink sleeve cuffs and collar trim. I always wore that shirt with biker shorts, which no doubt had neon pink and green stripes on the sides. Not kidding.

I've periodically thought to myself that I hope to never live to see neon colors come back in style. I do have to confess that I had similar feelings toward skinny jeans and capri pants. Today, I'm not totally against capri pants although I don't wear them, or even try them on. I think they make my short legs look even shorter. And skinny jeans? LOVE THEM!

So, is neon making a comeback? OMG please no!

the clash

I bought this awesome mouse pad from How About Orange. She was having a sale in her shop and I couldn't resist. I've needed a mouse pad at my work desk for quite some time. I'm sick of those little flecks of crap getting stuck on the roller ball and disrupting the gentle glide.

Doesn't it look great with my desk plant? He's a special vine and certainly needed a friend. No, I'm not crazy.

Yes, that is indeed an Apple keyboard you see. I should be banished for using a Dell mouse with it (see post title). Oh if only I had a mighty mouse!

(This is the point where, if I were some very famous blogger, like her or her, someone from Apple would email offering me a mighty mouse just to continue promoting the product.)

the shoes

Today, a blog friend reminded me that I love Anna Maria Horner's blog. For some reason, I had not subscribed to her feed and therefore have not seen her blog for a little while. Today, I subscribed and made a recovery visit. I think I've unknowingly been going through withdrawals! Despite the overwhelming loveliness of everything on her blog, I'm in love with this image, which I assume is a pattern cover for the adorabe Study Hall Skirt. Not to discredit the perfectness of the picture, its design, the awesome skirt, and the impecable legs on that model, I am in pure love with those shoes. I want them please!

I love him

Isn't he the cutest? I love it when he curls up like this. I know you probably thought I was going to write a blog post about my husband, especially because yesterday was Valentines Day...but that's not my style.

Changed Up

Remember how I wanted this do? Here is my version.
