Ice, ice, baby

Hello and happy Friday!  Boy, for having a short week this week it sure felt long to me!  And here I thought I was outsmarting my body by taking Monday off and tricked it into not feeling the effects of Daylight Savings Time - but I was wrong.  The extra day really made little difference.  Oh well, the weekend is here and that is all that matters!


It is miserable outside today.  Freezing rain and ice pellets (when did this become a term - I thought we used to call it sleet).  But I refused to dress in something drab and boring, I needed a pick me up, so I pulled out my favorite flirty denim skirt for summer and then just winterized it a bit.  Leggings and boots FTW.

Pink shirt - F21
Sweater - American Rag, thrifted
Skirt -  thrifted
Leggings - Steve Madden, DSW
Boots - Old Navy
Necklace - S&D
Bag - Olivia and Joy, TJMaxx


So even though I'm not panicking, I feel it's worth at least mentioning - Google announced that Google Reader is going away July 1st.  Now I don't know about other Blogger users, but I don't use Google Reader, I just use my Dashboard list that pops up when I log into Blogger of all the folks I follow on Google Friend Connect.  Google has not said if Google Friend Connect is affected by this change or not. Some folks are speculating that it's going away as well, but I don't know that an official announcement has been made on that (if I'm wrong, feel free to correct me).  So to make a long story short - I just wanted to say that IF GFC does go away, I am on Bloglovin, I have a Facebook page and I'm on Twitter - those links are on the right hand side at the top, the cute little buttons that Laura made me when she designed my new site - feel free to use any of them.

As for blogs I follow, sometimes my Blogger Dashboard doesn't load all my favorite blogs properly, so I'm already double following some of you on Bloglovin anyway, so if GFC does go away, I'll be set.  But like I said, I'm not freaking out too much yet.  Maybe I should be, but I'm not.  That's my story for now.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!! Be safe if you're out celebrating St. Patty's Day! And, in case I haven't said it in awhile - thanks for stopping by and sharing in my world just a little!

  1. Cute outfit! Yes, today is dreary and gross, and I am a bit sad by Google Reader going away, but there are a ton of other ways to keep up on your favorite blogs. Life goes on! And yay! Weekend! :)

  2. Man, I hope the rain/snow/sleet doesn't head our way! Glad to see that you didn't let the weather deter you from wearing your skirt. I really like the sweater too.

    I already imported all the blogs we follow into Bloglovin just in case! Happy St. Patty's Day and have a great weekend :) Heather

    p.s. now I have that song in my head!

  3. That handbag is gorgeous, love the zipper details! I am finding it SO hard to get up in the morning with it still dark out.

    You're very right, nothing has been announced about GFC but people are still panicking anyway!

  5. Ya Bethie, I don't use Reader either. Found it bothersome long ago. Oh and thanks for the comments regarding Tamar. She is a great blogger. I love the outfit again today, dear. Happy St. Patty's to you too!

  7. Oh, I'll have to check into that blog nonsense...I think I just use GFC? Honestly not sure though. I'm not as well versed in all of the technical stuff as I should be, haha. Sorry you guys are having terrible weather! Icy conditions are always worse in my eyes that snow. Hope it gets better for you for the weekend! Love that you pulled out this skirt for a little fun. It really looks great layered up, and I love that little sweater/jacket to pieces!

  8. Well, I'm a little conflicted, since if you go to google reader, all your blogger friend connect stuff is transposed there. Which is why I was tweeting about what will happen on dashboard and why I'm cranky google reader is going away. My dashboard has been broken for pretty much a year, so editing blogs I read has been difficult until I started using reader for my blogroll. I guess I'm making the jump to bloglovin' eventually, but I'm not a huge fan of it... HRM... plus many blogs I read are on wordpress or tumblr too, which GFC doesn't support. Sorry for the rant! I hope the outcry stops them from removing Google Reader.

    As for your outfit, it's really cute! I love that bag! Though I do feel bad for your weather. It's likely I'm experiencing amazing weather because the cold nasty has gone elsewhere.

  10. GFC only works on blogger blogs... and since I'm headed 100% self-hosted (yay for techy hubbies!)... you'll miss out on me :'(

    Crappy weather here too - at least you were smart enough to check before you left home!

  11. I SO want that bag! You look so cozy for today's crappy weather. I hope you have an excellent St Patty's Day weekend!

  12. Oh man, Daylight Savings Time is AWFUL, especially the "spring forward" part. I am totally still not acclimated, so I get you.

    Love the bag Beth!
