Time warp

Any Rocky Horror fans in the house?  "Let's do the time warp again!"  Seriously - it's March, but it sure doesn't feel like March!  You have to forgive me, I'm from Minnesota and talking about the weather is just what we do - I'm not complaining, but I am scratching my head.  75 F high today.  80 F high tomorrow?  On St. Patrick's Day?  It makes me wonder what we're in for this summer....not going to dwell too much though and just try to enjoy it while it lasts!

If you're newer to my blog then you aren't aware of the story that I have a cousin who is about the same size as me and is also a high powered executive at a pretty major corporation here in the Twin Cities, which means she buys NICE clothes. What does that have to do with me? Well, last fall, she sent a bag of "hand me downs" my way figuring I could probably use them for work. Isn't that nice of her? The top I have on today is one of the goodies I received.  My mom was talking to my aunt this week and my aunt said my cousin is getting ready to go through her closets again - so I should be expecting another bag of fun soon!  I say you are never too old for hand me downs!

I also don't think I've ever worn these jeans on the blog before, so I had to give you a booty shot because the pockets are fun!  I like it when jeans have a little something something on the back without being gaudy.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend - if you are heading out to celebrate St. Patty's Day, have fun and be safe!  We'll be potlucking and rehearsing with our music group, nothing too exciting!  Coming up next week on the blog - Super Stripes Week with Megan Mae and Keely!

Outfit rundown:
Shirt - Donna handed down from cousin
Jeans - Old Navy (thrifted)
Shoes - thrifted via Clothes Mentor
Necklace - Maurices
Bracelet - Bead for Life


  1. Man, it hasn't been QUITE that warm up here, but I'll take it! The lake cools things down quite a bit, but I think it's still supposed to be around 60 today. I love it. I've been taking loooooong walks outdoors and enjoying it as much as I can. But, like you, I'm trying not to dwell too much on it because it won't last.

    Oh, how I would love me a high-powered executive cousin. Nice shirt! Also love the denim...I'm with you on the little something something round back, as long as it's not completely tacky. Your bling is just the right amount.

  2. I agree, NEVER too old for hand me downs! Now, if only I had a rich cousin that was just my size... Haha! Love the top! Have a great weekend :)

  3. I hear you on the weather and while I am a little scared for summer, Just like you I'm trying to soak it up while it lasts! Also, you look adorable in jeans and that purple top is super cute on you!

  4. PS. Super Fan of the Rocky Horror!!! :)

  5. Free clothes are the best kind of clothes!

  6. we do like to talk about the weather here, don't we? i grew up in georgia though, so i think i can handle whatever heat & humidity comes our way this summer. i love the purple sweater, i hope your cousin has some more good hand me downs for you (i wish i had someone like that in my life or that someone around here would organize a swap!).

  7. fab post! i love the pics!! very very cute blog!

  8. Free clothes are the best! The fit on those jeans is really great. Also yes! I love Rocky Horror... in fact I once wrote a school paper on the merits of Rocky Horror and why it was vastly more successful than it's sequel Shock Treatment.


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