Share Your Good News {Living Outside the Stacks}

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I like to do a little something called “Fist Bump Friday”, where I encourage my friends to share something that has made them happy during the week. Sometimes we get so bogged down with life and the crazy that comes with it that we forget to recognize the good things. So I thought it’d be fun if we all shared and celebrated together.

So please, share your good news in the comments below. Remember, it doesn’t have to be big or earth shattering. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.

This week I’m happy that my performance evaluation went well and that the hubs received word that he’s going to be promoted.

What made you happy this week?

Mod Paisley Print Blouse {In the Closet}

Hi, all! Can you believe today is 1 May? Seriously, where has the time gone? Not that I’m complaining or anything because I’m really looking forward to some warm{er} weather. Although I have the sneaking suspicion that Mother Nature is playing a cruel trick on me because whenever we have nice weather I have meetings that keep me in doors all day but on weekends and days when I don’t have meetings not only does it pour down rain but it’s absolutely positively freezing as well. kicks rocks

Paisley Top, Jeans, and Mary Janes {Living Outside the Stacks}

On this particular day, I had several meetings, so, of course, the sun was sitting waaay up in the sky waving at me. I decided if I couldn’t go outside and enjoy the sun, I’d bring it inside with me the best I could, with this beautiful yellow paisley scarf top. I like that the print is kinda 60’s mod and that the shape hides all the stuff I didn’t feel like tucking into my jeans.

My inspiration was this outfit that I pinned from Suzanne Carillo Style Files. I just thought she looked so cute and chic with her kitten heels and clutch. Just adorbs!

Last week, I posted that my jeans came from Walmart and that seemed to spark some interest. Here’s the thing, as much as I like clothes and shoes, I like bags even more, so that’s where I spend my money. My interests change way too often. For months I’ll be obsessed with handbags, so I’ll save my money so that I can buy several designer ones. Then I’ll see a pair of shoes that I love and it’ll start a shoe thing. Next I’ll zoom in on skirts or blouses and the cycle begins again.

What’s your fashion obsession?
