Damn You Blogger

So, as I am sure you are all aware, Blogger went down and, while now restored, appears to have eaten some content. Rather than reposting my undoubtedly brilliant and insightful words from yesterday, I am going to plow ahead with my regularly scheduled post for today. So here it is:

Ah, the glory of spring. I’m reveling in this warm, but not too warm, weather! It’s the perfect chance to wear this purple blouse with a romantic flutter sleeve detail, paired with a structured black trouser and sparkly flats. In other burgeoning warm weather news, it was nice enough for me to get in a few hours of outdoor tennis this past Tuesday…it was brilliant (although I am super rusty and, therefore, somewhat hilariously bad, at tennis). How’s the weather in your neck of the woods, are you excited for summer temperatures?



Shirt: Gap / Pants: Thrifted, Banana Republic / Shoes: Target / Sunglasses: Somewhere in London


Okay, I lied. It's just eating away at me. Here's a rehash of yesterday's post. Seriously, damn you Blogger.

Leather and leopard…what’s not to love? In other news, I got my teaching assistant assignment for this coming fall (I start teaching my own junior seminar in January)…Introduction to Ancient Greek History. Now I know a little something about Classical history, I’ve even TAed such a class before while I was earning my MA…of course that was like 8 years ago, but not that much. So it’s going to be a trip. A fun one though.






Dress: Liz Claiborne / shirt: Gap / Faux Leather Jacket: Macys / Knee Highs: We Love Color / Shoes: Target

I love reading your blog and not seeing snow in the backgroud.
And it's nice to see your arms again.

oh man the whole blogger thing was so annoying, both evenings that I went to update it was down!!

Loving that leopard skirt it's great :)

Pamela said...

Looking good!

Wedding books? Costco, baby! Around $30. The easiest thing ever, just go on their website (if you're a member, of course). Otherwise, I think places like CVS do it too!

Grrrrr Blogger is so annoying! My lost post is still lost! On a brighter note, that purple top looks lovely on you! And I'm taking my camera with me to the salon tomorrow so I can show you I'm not lying!! Have a great weekend : )

I'm sorry about your blog post that got taken down. The site went down while I was out of town, so I was spared. I can't even imagine the frustration you (and others) had...

On a happier note, I love your shirt in the first outfit. And I freaking ADORE your leo skirt in the second. :)

The purple top is adorable, I love the sleeve detail, and I hate having to layer a top like that in the winter - because the best part always has to get hidden. So nice for cute sleeves to come out again!

I couldn't repost as I was silly enough to not save a copy of what I wrote...and it was a personal spur-of-the-moment/inspired thing that I completely lost, very, VERY sad :(
