So this past weekend was all sorts of magic. I laughed so hard I may have dilated my cervix a bit. That’s what great bosom friends do….good for your cervix, good for your soul. I ate like a trucker, we lounged by the pool, and shopped ’til we dropped. I purchased a sale belt at Anthro, caressed the Million Pleats Midi while I was there, and pawed at the fabulous green AG Stevies I covet. Also made it to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale for a new pair of running kicks and a MAC nude lip set exclusive to Nordy’s. Kinda freaking rocks.
I also got a much needed pedi (since my feet were closely resembling troll feet….) and chose a fabulous shade of intense orange, called Y’all Come Back Now, Ya Hear? from the O.P.I Texas collection. I had to. How could I not? I’m from Texas. There’s an obligation factor. My toenails are brighter than the sun, and possibly could stop traffic, but I couldn’t be happier.
I also tried on the cutest pair of Seychelles shoes (tassels!) that are exclusive to Nordstrom for the anniversary sale at $86.90. But I’m not crazy about either color option. If they put these out in Navy, they are so mine. The fit is dead-on for Seychelles. Go with your regular size.
I didn’t manage any outfit photos while I was away, (sorry, too busy choking on food while I was laughing), so I’m showing you one pre-trip outfit. The Falling Freesia Skirt has been a flexible wardrobe friend during this pregnancy. It’s ridden low on my hips many a time but now must, for the sake of the little guy’s comfort, reside decidedly on my ribcage. I kind of love how the bow on top ties above the belly, in it’s own way “announcing” I’ve got something important hidden under there. Kind of like a totally cool gift, wrapped up in a bow. The top I’m wearing I snatched faster than you can say “stripes” at the Banana Republic outlet. Pink and white stripes and shirred sleeves adorned with tiny little cloth-covered buttons? I’m in.
I hope you’ve had some side-splitting laughter yourselves this past weekend. Thank you all for your sweet comments you’ve made over the past week. I read every single one of them (as I always do) and really appreciate you who take the time to pipe up. I’m going to go all Kumbayah-ish and say that I love hearing from you, love your stories, and love that we all love Anthro. So thank you, from the bottom of my Kumbayahing heart.
