Don't rain on my parade

Man alive, it was one of those mornings.  I was SO excited about this outfit and I still am, but getting a photo proved a challenge today.  It was cloudy and on the verge of rain, so I chose to do pictures inside.  I took several as I always do - but this was the only one in which my eyes are open.  Sigh.  I just love the colors of this outfit, several new additions here to perk up my wardrobe.  I will wear it again sometime when I can photograph it outside I guess!

I am happy because today is my Friday! I don't have to work tomorrow! I just needed a "Me day" so I decided a Friday off would be just the ticket.  I'm really looking forward to it, I scheduled an appointment for a massage (thank you gift card from Christmas) and otherwise plan to just chill at home.  Well maybe not "chill" - going to be 90 tomorrow. I'm not a fan of the heat, but I'll roll with it, maybe work on my tan - ha!  I'm looking forward to the rest of the weekend too - for the locals, the Band of Thrifters are having a sale during NE Minneapolis Art-A-Whirl.  I'm definitely checking this one out and cannot wait.  We also have our third golf lesson and I'm meeting a couple of college friends for breakfast on Sunday.  It should be a good weekend and I'm just really looking forward to it!

Since I'm lacking in pictures of myself, I'm sharing another cat picture.  I don't care if no one else thinks they are cute and funny, I love them and they make me smile.  So here we have Taylor - laying on my blazer.  My fault for not hanging it up, but seriously, what is with my cats and laying on my clothes?  Any other cat owners have that problem?  Oh well, that is what lint rollers were invented for!

And of course, now the sun is coming out.  Darn it.  Just my luck!  Oh well!  On we go!

Outfit rundown:
Layered camis - Old Navy

  1. I like the bright pink. I am kind of looking forward to rain, but it does get in the way of outfit pictures.

  2. are wearing my favorite color! This is a great outfit and wonderful colors for you. It's a cheerful outfit, even if the weather was not. Your kitty is adorable. I'm allergic to cats, but I do love them :) Have a great massage and a wonderful ME day!

  3. i love your bright and summery outfit! sounds like you have a full weekend! i decided that i will be spending mine doing crafts and hitting up garage sales. we'll see if the crafts come into play! have a good one! happy "friday" to you!

  4. Lovely summery outfit! Not a sign of good weather over here yet...I think I will have to pretend :(

  5. The bright colors are so fun! Sometimes it's nice to take a mental health day, everyone needs a break from work every now and then :) I don't have cats, but Jinx loves to lay on clothes too. He sometimes takes shirts out of the laundry and cuddles with them like blankets, ha.

    The Tiny Heart

  6. It's a well-known fact that cats will shun all number of comfy cat beds in favour of a pile of clean washing! Cats and airing cupboards for example! I love your cat shots!!!
    I like the outfit! Bright and pretty! I wore a yellow cardigan today! I don't do yellow and it felt weird!!!

  7. Lucky you! I wish I could take a day off. I could definitely use some alone time to unwind and get some stuff done around the house!

  8. Don't you hate when rain derails outdoor photos? Well, you still looked colorful and fun indoors. Those shades of coraly pink are so pretty.

    Awww, I love the kitty pics. Post more of them! Cats are terrible about sleeping on your clothes, your bags, the paper you're looking for, anything that will remotely hold cat hair or be important at the moment. I love 'em dearly, but they can be a pain. Orange cat hair shows on everything!

    I have certain stuff that's specifically "wear to Mom's because cats," well and kittens, they really like to claw things.

  9. Oh no! I hate when I really like an outfit but am not able to get good outfit photos - and OF COURSE the sun came out when you were almost done posting :D

    Well, regardless, I really like that skirt - so perfect for spring!


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