OOTD + odds and ends

I am so glad the week is more than half way over:) I had another early morning, a long day at work, and a nice workout at the gym. I'm ready for bed!

I recently purchased this necklace from ohhellofriend and I love it! She has some of the coolest jewelry for sale. I also really appreciate that it came packaged very, very nicely with beautiful tape (yes, tape can be beautiful!), a lovely, personalized name tag, and even a little pocket calender!



Dress: Anthropologie Asters Everywhere Dress
Cardigan: J. Crew
Tights: Hue
Shoes: From a little boutique in Bath, UK
Necklace: Ohhellofriend


I would like to say Thank You to Jess from What Jess Likes! I won a surprise giveaway on her blog and recently received my package in the mail! I love surprises and I couldn't wait to open it! Thanks Jess for the delicious coffee and tea, the beautiful bracelet, and the other goodies!

I also want to extend a big Thank You to Anthropologiesque and Katie from Dress Like a Cute Scientist for awarding me the Versatile blogger award! If you haven't already checked out their wonderful blogs, go there now! Thank you so much ladies! I really appreciate it:) I already revealed 7 things about myself and passed the award on in this post.

I hope you all are having a great week!

  21. What a lovely necklace. And isn't it wonderful when something is nicely packaged? The extra effort really goes a long way and makes whatever is inside feel that much more special.

    And I love the bright splashy print on your dress. With the green sash, it is just so cheerful!

  28. Thanks so much ladies for all of the sweet comments!!! I will do another post soon with more pictures and info about my tattoo. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend:)

    Jess - It goes a little bit past my elbow.

    TrophyBoutique - Thanks! My tattoo really hasn't made too many appearance on my blog (yet). Partly because of the weather (it mostly stays covered during the winter) and partly because I'm not able to show it off at work, so all of my work outfits hide it.

    Gabby - Yep, this is a little sneak peek of my bees:)

  31. your tats are awesome! I am in the process of having some removed.. BUT I just love the way they look on others, I want to love mine, but it's time for them to go.... do they have special significance for you? I would love to hear the backstory- if there is one :)
