Parent-Teacher Conferences (Part 2)

Well, if 10"+ of snow weren't staring at me from below my apartment window, this outfit is what I would be wearing for conferences tonight. Instead, I'm wearing 15-year-old pajama pants, a thermal shirt, and a North Face zipper up. (Hey, it all matches.)

So, we had conferences last night. The snow had started to fall and stick on the roads when I finally left the building after conferences. When I stepped into the parking lot, who was there? My husband. He had cleaned off my car, started it, pushed the heated seat button, and drove behind me so as to keep people off my butt. Seriously, I hit the husband jackpot. Currently, he is driving his truck to his parents' house 15-20 minutes away so that he can shovel their driveway for them. On Saturday, I have a massage appointment that's "not for Valentine's Day because we're not getting each other anything." That man's kindness never ceases to amaze me.

Okay, I'll bypass the sappiness and continue with what would have been today's outfit.

The Look:
Blazer: LOFT (on SUPER sale but very few sizes left--I got it for $32, which is quite a score for a gorgeous LOFT blazer like this one!)
Skirt: LOFT (close option from Target)
Shirt: New York and Company (really cute $9 options at Kohl's)
Tights: The Limited (can't find them online anymore)
Boots: b.o.c. via DSW (bought them almost two years ago)

I wanted to make you laugh today, so I included the following two pictures.

I'm not entirely sure what I was doing, but it wasn't bringing sexy back.

I laugh so hard. She snapped a picture of me as I disgustedly asked, "IS THAT A DEAD BIRD CARCASS IN THE TREE!?" Mom assured me it was not, but I'm still speculating.

  1. I have so many outtakes from my blog photos when I get distracted by something. A possible dead bird carcass definitely would have distracted me. Thanks for linking up!

  2. aww how sweet is your hubby! Although this snow needs to hit the road ha--ready for some sunshine! I love this outfit tho--you are def. bringing sexy back--even in the outtakes :)


  3. aw, what a nice husband you have! We're "not getting each other anything," but he usually cheats somehow. I don't complain, because I love presents! OH, and that blazer is gorgeous!

  4. AHAHA okay yeah I laughed out loud at the last picture. I do stuff like that all the time. I really like this outfit, that top is too perfect! I just came in from shoveling those 10+ inches of snow, so I'm wearing b&w printed leggings, a green tie-dye long sleeve tee and burgundy slippers. Not matching at all!! Your hubby is so sweet! (I hope you don't mind my rambling comments where I talk about 5 different things with zero transition between haha)
