Lazy winter day

My lazy week continues! Although yesterday wasn't quite as lazy - I got up earlier than I do for work and took my car in for an oil change and to fix a leak it had.  They wanted it there as early as they opened.  So, I lost a day of sleeping in, but at least my car works now and was not too expensive to fix!

My mom was nice and rode to the car place with me and while they were working on it we went to Target and I spent a gift card I had for there.  Not hard to blow through a gift card for Target, let me tell you!  After that I came home and waited for the car guys to call me, I ended up having to call them, but fortunately it was done by the middle of the afternoon. 

I managed to get home just as it started to snow again.  Fortunately this warm scarf from the Pants Monkey kept me nice and toasty all day long!!  I sat under a blanket and watched Ellen.  No complaints from this girl!

In this last picture, I have the purse I found at the Goodwill.  I still can't believe it.  It's not a huge bag, but it fits my things and will be fun to play with this winter. 

. Sweater - Mossimo, Target
Jeans - Levi's, thrifted
Scarf - ModCloth (gift)
Boots - Mossimo, Target
Bag - Coach, thrifted

Today I'm off to meet a couple of my sorority sisters for coffee and then I'm coming home and having an 80s movie marathon.  And then tomorrow Mr. Monkey will be back home with me for four days, I'm excited!  The stay at home wife thing is fun and all, but I like it better when he's here too!


  1. I am loving that sweater and scarf together! It looks really good paired with your dark wash trouser pants. What a score on the purse too. Very nice! Enjoy your 80s marathon. I wish I was home snuggling on the couch today! Heather

  2. Hahaha, Oh my goodness I just feel like you and I would be friends. Target gift cards burn a whole in my pocket like nobody's business. I got one for Christmas and I totally spent it the day after Christmas. I don't get to watch Ellen because of my work schedule, but that is one of my favorite things to do when I have a day off! Love this scarf too, it looks so cozy and that is a great mix of colors on you. Plus that bag!!!!! Omgosh Coach, why are they so awesome?

  3. Very cute sweater and scarf combo! I hope that you are having a great day today!

  4. What a fabulous find in that bag! Awesome! Love your sweater. It looks so cozy and warm :)


  5. Bethie! OH I LOVE THIS ENTIRE OOTD!!! Especially the star mustard top and THAT bag! You thrifty queen, you!!!

    Yes, I know I got those boots at Kinney's. They were liquidating at the time and I got about 4 pairs of boots or shoes then and those lone boots from that purchase that day, are still with me.


  6. I like the star sweater, and the scarf is really cute.

  7. What a cute sweater with that star print! I have a Target gift card too and I have to decide what to many things I want there! Have a great weekend, Beth!

  8. I absolutely LOVE your star sweater, so cute! Your scarf and bag are amazing too! What a great thrift find!

  9. That's a gorgeous bag - great steal!

  10. That sweater is SO cute! Love how you are rocking it with the sweater!

  11. I LOVE that scarf and star sweater! Target is the best! I wanted to go there yesterday for some pajamas, but Kyle said no. It's probably a good thing because we ended up spending a lot at IKEA this week. Awesome purse too, I don't normally care for purses with logos, but I always liked the fancy patchwork ones!

  12. That scarf does look warm and cozy and I love the star print!

  13. Eeee! Star sweater, star sweater love! I've been spending my Christmas money too. I hit up goodwill this afternoon to find some goodies. Glad your car got fixed. I'm now wanting to curl under a blanket for days.


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