Friday - Flirty and Fill in the Blank

Good morning and happy Friday friends! I'm tired this morning, like really tired. So, I'm pushing through it with a fake sunny attitude (which will hopefully just sort of become real - so far no luck) and LOTS of coffee. A couple of blog hops for your reading pleasure...

The Kimchee Chronicles a blog that I've loved for a while and she's just added a little hoppy game. Go read her stuff, she gives me the giggles. So for Flirty Friday, you discuss your favorites of whatever item she's discussing that day, and I'm psyched. Today's topic is CARDIGANS, which is like my fave garment ever. These are the ones I'm loving this winter...

 Oversized, cozy, kind of blazer-ish. I can't get enough of this dude.
Buy it on SALE here.

Extra long, light and great for layering. Tiny embroidered HEARTS. Love.
Buy it at the best store ever here.

I also love today's Fill in the Blank Friday and it's seasonal-ness from the little things we do...

1. Winter is HERE! This week it has been cool and crisp and perfect. Next week: highs in the mid-30's. Eeek! Me and the Prince don't thrive in the winter. I'm cranky and he's whiny. But, there are cuddly clothes to be worn, so I'm still kind of perky about it. I may be singing another tune this time next week.

2. Summer seems so far away. But, it's probably time for me to formulate my swimsuit readiness strategy...

3. If it were summer instead of winter right now I'd definitely be wearing a dress. I hate pants. 

4. My favorite thing to do in winter is drink delicious hot beverages. Lattes. Hot cocoa. Hot tea. You name it, if it's served in a mug, I'm excited. This year, I'm just discovering Cappuccino. It seems ridiculous that I've never tried them, but I'm in LOVE. 

5. My favorite thing to do in summer is go to the lake and head out on the boat! I used to be a good water skier, but these days I prefer to just bask and enjoy cold beverages. This may be the summer I go to full-on sunhat protection. The visible signs of aging will not disrupt my nautical fun.

6. The ideal outfit for a sunny summer day is a sundress, flip flops and as little makeup as possible. I just got a little sad thinking about that...today I'm bundled and have absolutely zero tan on my face. Pout.

7. The ideal outfit for a frigid winter day is leggings, boots, sweater, scarf. If I have to wear pants, I strive for stretchy ones. 

Thanks for sticking with me friends! And thanks to the hosts of these blog hops, I love participating! The Friday Newsflash will be comin' your way soon!


  1. I am obsessed with cardigans! Its pretty much all I wear, all year long! And that first one is adorable!

    p.s. I just found your blog from Lauren's and I love it! I had a standard poodle (Truffle) for 14 years, but he passes away last January :( What kind is yours?

  2. *passed away. I should really proof-read :)

    Happy New Year!
