Ropes & Plaid

Happy Tuesday! Only 2 days til the weekend (today doesn't count and Friday doesn't count - logical math)! 

This weekend I had my first Dave & Busters experience, and let me tell you, it is nothing like Laguna Beach made it seem like. You know the episode, where Kristin and Jessica make Alex H. get a random balding guys number and they look totally cool just having a casual girls night at 17 years old. Well, in reality, it's mostly screaming children. It was still fun, and I am the reigning basketball shootout champion, so all is well in the world. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a little preview of this outfit. I was getting ready one morning last week, throwing clothes all around my room, happy with absolutely nothing in my closet. Until I threw this Banana Republic sweater and plaid button down next to each other and I had my morning epiphany - the two obviously needed to be worn together. I used to LOVE the sweater layer trend. In high school, this was my go to outfit - a cable knit sweater (probably from the Gap), usually paired with two polos and... I'm seriously cringing as I write this... two intentionally popped collars. (Ouch. That was rough.) Anyway, put on some booties and voila! I threw on my utility jacket and was off to work. 

P.S. My hair had started out straight the morning these pictures were taken... 

And just for good measure....
