I don't have any pictures of one of my weekend outfits because I spent too much time having fun with our out-of-town guests! My husband and I managed to luck out when we visited the Bahamas this summer because we met another couple with whom we instantly connected. They are so fun, funny, easy to talk to, and down to earth. My Dad and brother think we're nuts because we met these "random people" on vacation; now, we've visited them, and they've visited us. I understand their concerns, but sometimes you just have to trust your judgment of other people. Heck, I could meet someone from up the street who turns out to be a psychopath. Who's to say that a person from a few states away isn't completely normal and awesome? Furthermore, I met my now husband at a club. Sometimes, you meet the best of people in the most unexpected places. Right?

Anyway, we spent the weekend working on programs for their upcoming wedding (yay!), shopping, eating, and chatting. I also introduced them to the amazingness that is Pitch Perfect. They even accepted the strangeness that has been my lower lip since Thursday. Guys, I went to the doctor because they said they needed a biopsy of the inside of my lip (long story). When I think biopsy and dermatologist, I think a scraping of the skin. Oh, no no no. They straight up took a scalpel to my flesh and chiseled out some salivary glands; in other words, they excised a CHUNK of my mouth. This procedure, for which I came completely unprepared, required four stitches, stitches that the doctor must remove. (WHY no dissolvable stitches?!) I seriously mirrored Sloth from the Goonies and Quasimodo's love child...if that person actually existed. People's faces looked pained when they saw my mouth; I thought Mom would cry every time she stared at my face. Anyway, I am finally on the mend (though my head feels a bit like someone beat it with a bat), and my weekend was still fabulous, puffy lip and all. 

I call this outfit my "Ralph Lauren Look" because who doesn't name outfits? 

Outfit Deets:
Scarf: Unknown, but I know you're digging my tartan

P.S. I'm throwing my best friend's bridal shower next weekend, what do you think I should wear?

Linking up with the lovely Molly.


  1. I hope your lip feels better...I'm sure you didn't that bad(!)...but I know it seriously hurt.

    Ok, you are my long lost friend with your Pitch Perfect loving!

    And yes...totally digging the tartan. Love this outfit!

    Just followed your blog and would love it if you checked out mine!


  6. I think this is totally a RL outfit - the boots and blazer are adorable (must be one of the 40? jealous). I hope your lip recovers quickly!


Feel free to throw some witticisms my way.
