All over the map

Wednesday... went to Target Field to watch the Twins beat up on the White Sox.  This day was like my own sad little triathlon... biked 5 miles each way to work, ran 4 miles, biked 5 miles each way to Target Field (then drank beer for 3 hours watching baseball), followed by a midnight swim in the pool! I know, quite a bit of activity for one day, but certainly no Ironman.

Party as a Verb

I was once in a shuffleboard league (ok, several...) and my teammate Mike named our team "Party as a Verb" because it makes me INSANE when people do that... (ex: Wanna party this weekend? Do you party? I'm in the mood to party. etc...) Gross! Regardless, I've been to quite a few parties lately...

Last Friday, my friend Amber's birthday/Brittany's final going away festivities!

Helena Handbasket

Another week of playing catch-up... I'll try to be up to date by the end of the week, at which point I will fall hopelessly behind again!

Last Thursday: I made this skirt when I was like 22, and I always feel like I look young when I wear it... who says 28 year olds don't wear skirts featuring an appliqued lightning bolt and screenprinted seahorse?

Miercoles Wednesday

Last Wednesday:
I tend to just let this dress stand on it's own, it's already making quite a statement, so it doesn't need a clutter of accessories. What that statement is, exactly, I don't know. It's somewhere between "No, I didn't turn your old picnic blanket into a dress, but yes, wearing it does make me want to eat pasta salad in the park." and "I may or may not be Ronald McDonalds birth mother." Eh, whatevs.
Dress - thrifted
Shoes - thrifted DeeGow Boutique
Though, to be fair, I spent most of last Wednesday in a swim suit. My book club had our monthly meeting at my house, so I had a big BBQ/pool party! We read Cloud Atlas, which was crazy good! It was super strange and spanned from an 18th century trading ship to the post-apocalyptic future and all the way back again! Nothing like arguing over symbolism while trying to dunk a friend.

This Wednesday:
Blouse - thrifted
Bangle - thrifted
Skirt - Ruth
Shoes - Charles David

This is just a Merona Target shirt, but lookie how cute the front is:

2xTue (Two Times Tuesday)

Last Tuesday, worn to Four Nights in Loring: Local bands. Local music. So basically you go to the park and throw down some blankets, a local band plays a show, then they screen an outdoor movie that has some local connection. This week I saw Communist Daughter and Raising Arizona, and had a picnic with a few friends (um, is cheese and crackers, gummi bears, and a box of wine considered a "picnic"? I guess so, since we were sitting on a blanket.) 

Hair scarf - thrifted
Dress - thrifted, shortened
String tie - thrifted
Bangles - thrifted, flea markets
Shoes - Dezario

This Tuesday, I should be going to the park again tonight, but it was canceled due to tornado warnings... so I'll be heading to my friend Mike's house to escape the storms by watching baseball and playing board games... which is too bad, because this seems like a good "picnic" outfit!
 Hair scarf - thrifted
Dress - thrifted, handmade
 Shoes - Madeline

Last night's concert was amazing! Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros put on a great live show... they even got the entire outdoor crowd to sit down for the final song... which was quite a feat!
