A Few Things...

1. Something about a delicious cupcake turns a day into magic. 

2. I hate coffee. Earl Gray is my drink of choice. I should've been British.

3. These work pants feel like leggings, but they are absolutely not. They are the columnist slim fit pants from Express. Go get you some

4. I am so excited for ugly sweater day at school tomorrow. I'm coupling it with "Flannel Friday." I don't know if that's a real thing or if my students just made it up. Either way, since my classroom feels like an ice box, I'm rocking my flannel shirt under my ugly sweater. 

5. I am 29 and just found out the source of my two month headache is a deviated septum and bone spur. How did I make it this far through chronic sinus infections without this nugget of knowledge? First thing I thought of when the doctor said spur? Cowboy boots tapping the sides of a horse while wild west music plays in the background. The mind thinks what the mind thinks. 

The Outfit:
Blazer: Lauren Conrad via Kohl's
Pants: Express (Columnist slim fit)
Boots you can barely see: b.o.c. via DSW
White sweater: The Limited
(FYI: I folded up the sleeves over the end of the blazer.)
Leopard infinity scarf: Francesca's



  1. Um yes, I need to check out these pants, because they look amazing! I'm a tea fan too, blech to coffee.

  2. First thing I thought of was the San Antonio Spurs. I don't get how you like tea. I like chai tea lattes and sleepytime tea when I'm sick. Maybe I drink tea the wrong way? I like your outfit. And your end table. And your stockings.

  3. 1 - I love English breakfast tea just as much as I love my coffee. Sometimes more. I also love Doctor Who and Downton Abbey, so I think I could make a very convincing British person. If not for the Southern accent. 2 - I love the pants! I've been looking for a new pair of slim black pants. I'll definitely have to check them out and see if they'll work for someone with a little more junk (if-you-know-what-I'm-sayin'). 3 - Deviated septum - not just an excuse for a nose job. The chronic sinus infections can make you hate your life :( Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Love this look and I love express pants! I am gonna have to grab a pair of these

  5. Only yesterday I was at Express lookign at the columist pants! They are fabulous!!! Love em. And as for the deviated septum..i hear close friend has it and its such a pain for her. You look beautiful Danielle.. :)

  6. Maroon, white, black, and leopard? A classic Brynn combo. I approve. Also, I have a bone spur on my heel that acts up when I wear flats too many days in a row. I always, always, always pretend I have cowboy spurs when it comes back, ha!


Feel free to throw some witticisms my way.
