boring and gross

Here is Friday's outfit... I got a lot of flack at work over the socks with heels. The finance secretary said "You can't wear socks with heels, you just CAN'T!" I got the stamp of approval from the wardrobe_remix girls, so I think I can pull it off.

Long sleeve t - Target
Ruffled shirt - thrifted
Leather vest - thrifted
Skirt - thrifted (and shortened by me) Nicole Miller
Shoes - vintage from etsy shop VintageVogue

Vest - thrifted
Silk striped shirt - thrifted
Belt - thrifted
Pants - thrifted
Sandals - Nordstrom (that is the brand too! I've had them for ten years now!)

I had a pretty boring weekend. Friday I just hung out at the boys house with some friends, it was really fun, but pretty much the same ol' thing. Saturday I had to waitress for the first time in a few weeks and it was SO busy. My boss was out of town, the bar manager was busy doing a tasting with a couple (and their parents) for an upcoming wedding. So I had to run my little butt off making drinks for my own tables (and for the other servers, since I'm the only waitress who also bartends!) It was SO, SO much work. When I was finally done I felt really tired and kind of sick. So I went right to bed. I got up around 2am and then REALLY got sick. All day Sunday? Spent in the bathroom, getting sick. I finally stopped around 3am Monday. Needless to say I did not go to work yesterday. I slept until around noon, ate some plain toast and felt okay so I started going through all my winter clothes. I decided what to keep, what was vintage and could go on etsy in the fall, what was not vintage but could be sold to a resale shop in the fall, and what would go to charity. I'm not done yet, but I'm finally letting go of some things I've kept around for years. You know, "I'll wear this one day just not today." So there you have it, my boring and gross weekend. Luckily it was drizzly and icky all day so at least I wasn't missing out on the spring, and hopefully all this rain will make the grass green soon!

How was your weekend?
