This entire post is brought to you by my family. My husband picked out my outfit, and Lyla picked out the poses we did for the pictures. How do you think they did?
This is what I wore out to celebrate my last day of working during the day with the husband. That night was also known as our last date night in a VERY LONG TIME! We went to see X-Men: First Class, and I must say I was very happy with it. My comic book, geek husband says they strayed from the story line a bit, but did a good job setting up for the movies that have already been made. For someone like me, who just likes the movies, it was a great movie. Have you seen this X-Men yet? If so, what did you think?

This month for Everybody, Everywear bloggers everywhere are wearing lace. After the voting ended, an lace was announced the winner I automatically started thinking about what lace items I had in my closet. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any lace or lace accented pieces. I guess I did have a camisole or two that have a small amount of lace trim on the neckline. In my opinion that didn’t actually count. I didn’t even have any cute lace wrapped accessories. What I did have is a lace nightie. Insert giggles, snickers, or blushing. I immediately began brainstorming on ways I could make it appropriate to wear out.I lucked out and had a nice, cool day last week. I’m talking thunderstorms the night before and only reaching 65. I was ecstatic! That meant I could layer a bandeau under and a cardigan on top. That meant I could be completely covered, yet still show off my lace.
I took advantage of the beautiful weather, and my free time by going to the park and taking pictures on the bike path. I’ve taken pictures outside before, but it isn’t nearly as nerve wracking when your husband is taking your pictures. This was my first go around with outdoor self-portraiture. I lucked out and nobody went by on the path. I just had to deal with a construction worker gawking at me from the parking lot. I hope to do this more often, now that I am home with Lyla during the day. I guess I should start reading up on Hello Monkey Face’s Self-Caught Feature. I didn’t have any issues with other passer-bys until I moved up to take accessory shots.The Scoop

How do you deal with curious onlookers? Any outdoor self-portraiture tips?
I swore last year that I would never try rompers. A few weeks ago when shopping for summer dresses and maternity pieces Nate dared me to try on a romper. I gave it a shot, and kind of liked it. I figured at least it would be comfy enough to wear around the house. Friday night I decided to give it a shot paired with fun red tights and a faux leather jacket.
What is one trend you swore you would never try, but liked it after all when you gave it a shot?
Two pairs of jeans were my first post challenge purchase. It took me almost two months to take the plunge. However, I’m glad I held out. These jeans are so incredibly comfortable. I was browsing the Target clearance racks and found the William Rast jeans for $12. I liked the price and managed to find my size, so I snagged two pairs and love them!
A day of the year when every body is a wee bit Irish. There are 3.8 million people in Ireland, and many more that can count themselves as part Irish.
St. Patrick’s day is not an official American holiday, but it is celebrated with lots of parades, events, green beer, corned beef and cabbage, and soda bread throughout the country (and world I’m sure). If I could choose to celebrate anywhere I would choose Chicago. Love the Irish American pride, and the green river. What will you be doing this year?
I absolutely love these boots. They are so comfy. I’m honestly a little disappointed that it is getting warmer, and I will have to put these babies away till fall. They allowed me to wear tights, wool socks, jeans, skirts, or whatever I could stuff in there to stay warm. Can’t go wrong with that.
Come summer and it is hot and humid out what can yourself comfortable in the elements? You can only take so much off.
