This and That

It's kind of wet and damp outside today, so I decided to do my pictures inside.  And show off my cute Ikea pantry apparently.  I have to say - the pantry is one of the best things we've bought for ourselves so far this year!  I never used to be an Ikea girl, but I've kind of been converted.

The adorable Kelley of Threads and Buttons wore a shirt tied at the waste a couple of weeks ago and ever since then I've wanted to style a shirt like that.  I used to wear them like this all the time when I was younger, but haven't in a really long time.  I like the look of it today, it's just a different way to style this shirt.  Plus, double the stripes again for the Stripes challenge!

I'm so jazzed it's almost the weekend already.  This week has kind of flown by.  I'm hoping to convince Mr. Monkey to go see a late night showing of The Hunger Games tomorrow night after our music group rehearsal.  I'm crazy excited for this movie and there's a smaller theatre not far from us that I've gone to late night showings before and it's never terribly busy.  Added bonus, it's right next to a pretty awesome bar that happens to have really great Happy Hour specials, so you go have a beer and then go watch your movie and it works pretty well.  So I'll have to see if I can convince my Pants Monkey that this is a good idea.  We will see how things go!  Anyone else super excited for this movie?

  3. Love the mix of striped pants and patterned shirt, really cute. Go for the Happy Hour! Don't know if this is close to you or if you've been there...but Wilde Roast Cafe in Minneapolis has a CRAZY delicious Happy Hour M-F from 3:30-6:30.

  4. Love that outfit! And your pantry is really cute!

  5. Your stripes pants are cute. I had to take inside pictures too, since it was rainy and yucky.

  6. Your Ikea pantry IS cute, and your tied up blouse is even cuter. I'm hoping to wear a lot of crop tops on my upcoming vacation. Good thing I've been working out. :)

    I haven't gotten into the Hunger Games yet, but obviously I've heard good things. I SHOULD go pick the first book up to read on the plane. Now there's an idea!

    1. It is a fast read - if you get it you'll finish it on the plane! Or at least over the course of your vacation!

  7. This looks so cute on you! I keep saying the tied blouse trend, but haven't been brave enough to try it myself!

  8. Woo! Double stripes! I haven't read the Hunger Games yet. I promise I'm going to. Ugh. Probably going to start tonight. I've been wanting to read it for awhile, but I've been reading so much. Ah, well I hope I can get it read and badger someone to take me to see the movie. =]

  9. Great look, Beth. Very figure flattering.


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
