Last Week on Instagram...Wk #12

I'm a little late with Last Week on Instagram this week - it's been a crazy few days! I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend. Just when we were starting to get used to the warmer weather here, we were rudely thrust back into almost-winter temps. Brrrr! I had just moved all of my boots and heaviest sweaters into one of the spare bedrooms! Hmmm...perhaps that was my mistake...

Let's catch up on last week's Instagram!

I attempted another top-down selfie, which wasn't any more successful than the one two weeks ago. Sigh. Even though it was a bit chilly, I wore the drape front anorak I picked up a couple of months ago at the Nordstrom sale. (This is the closest thing I could find, but it's heavier than mine. Mine is really lightweight and really drapey, if that makes sense, LOL!) It's a little long for someone as vertically-challenged as myself, but I think it still works. I paired it with a plain white t-shirt from Nordstrom, jean leggings from Gap (similar), and leopard d'Orsay flats (similar) from DSW. The jeans and shoes were purchased last year, but they're still trendy, and easy to find at any price point. The bag is Kate Spade, and my nail color is Tango Passion by CND. A word about that white tee - it's the one that a lot of fashion bloggers have raved about, saying it's so awesome, only $18 at Nordie's, etc. I don't really like it. I've purchased nicer tees at Target for less. In my opinion, the fabric is cheap, it doesn't lay/wash well, and it doesn't look that great on. I'm not sure why I didn't just return it - and I don't know why everyone raves over it. Just my two cents. (Last I checked, they only had it in red in a small, but it was on sale for $10.80.) Oh - and that's one of my favorite necklaces! It's from House of Harlow 1960, and it's called the Kinetic pendant. Mine is in silver , but it also come in gold .

Yesterday's #ootd - I love the lightweight layered, flowy jacket; perfect for spring!

How gorgeous is my new wood watch from Jord®? Next week, I'll have a blog post all about it, and I'll also be giving away a $129 e-gift certificate to the Jord® website that can be used toward any watch of your choice! This particular style is the Sidney in maple and rose gold, and sells for $199. Their watches are priced $129-395.

I shared a flat lay of an outfit I wore later in the week to a doctor appointment (with a cardigan so I wouldn't freeze my @$$ off, thanks winter!). The top is a new purchase from Loft - I love the bandanna print (30% off right now, no code needed) and the slightly longer short sleeves. I paired it with roll-up white jeans from the Gap outlet (similar), Topshop lace-up ghillies from Nordstrom, fringe handbag from Nordstrom (similar), and Kendra Scott earrings (Sunglasses also from Loft - similar) I actually got three compliments on my outfit while I was at the hospital - it's always nice when that happens!

Hello sunshine! So glad t-shirt weather is peeking it's head out every now and then! Love this bandanna print tee that I just picked up from Loft!

These are the Nine West pumps that I picked up at DSW last week on clearance. Actually Lulu saw them and urged me to try them on. At first I laughed, but when I put them on, I fell in love! They're awesome! They're sort of a linen-type fabric with a dull metallic gold sheen that keeps them very neutral and wearable. I love Nine West shoes and these are no exception. I ended up getting them for just $17.98 - such a steal! (similar - similar

Found these fabulous Nine West pumps on clearance at DSW for just $17.98! ❤️ Love the hint of gold metallic - so fun!

 While we were at DSW, I had to snap a picture of this awesome wall decal in the restroom. I love it! And it's so true!

Yes. This is on the wall in the restroom at my DSW.

I was sitting on the floor in front of the doors to the deck taking pictures for the blog, and Psycho Jungle Cat decided to hang from a perch and observe. He was hilarious - twisting all around, hanging his head upside down - so I had to take a picture of him, too. Of course, the thwacking paw was always at-the-ready!

Relaxation is relative. One must always be alert to danger and have the thwacking paw at the ready.

Gus and I went out for our usual Saturday night date, and we shared a dessert at TGIFriday's - the half-sized Brownie Obsession. It's delicious - and usually, even the half-size is about 3"x4" and comes with just one scoop of ice cream. I'm not sure what happened, but when ours arrived, there was only a small sliver of brownie - about 1" wide - and it was accompanied by two scoops of ice cream and enough pecans to make a pie. We laughed because obviously they were trying to disguise the fact that there was almost no brownie!

Umm, this is the HALF-sized Brownie Obsession from @officialtgifridays! The brownie is small (and oh-so-delicious), but we got the mother lode of pecans & ice cream!

And that does it for Last Week on Instagram! I hope we're already connected, but if not, you can find me here. Have a safe and happy week!
