Happy Friday! Let me tell you about my past few days...Tuesday night my dad came over for dinner (I made chicken fajitas and he was amazed by the fact that I could actually cook and was super amazed by Netflix. Ha, he couldn't get over the fact that every show and movie was on there! Oh, parents. And out of allll the movies in the world of Netflix, we watched one that was older than me.) anyway, after he left I started feeling sick and by Wednesday morning I thought I was on my death bed. I hardly ever get sick, but when I do it's always a stomach thing. So annoying. Thank heavens it usually only lasts a day! I woke up Thursday morning feeling like a new person, sooo much better. Can you believe I lost SEVEN pounds in those 18ish hours? I know it was water weight, but still blows my mind. I was thankful to get out of the house this morning! I met Carolyn (@missmyrtleblooms) & Emily (With Style & Grace) at a local coffee shop for girl chatter and coffee, well I had to get green tea bc I wasn't sure how my stomach would take coffee. Do you know how hard it is for a coffee addict to order green tea first thing in the morning at one of her favorite coffee shops?? Hard. I like green tea but not first thing, I need the real stuff.

This casual look was perfect for today. I love that I was comfy but still felt cute- the heeled booties and bits of jewelry helped with that :) If you are looking for a utility jacket (so perfect for spring!) I highly recommend this one! It runs TTS, I am in a small, and I have been told that more sizes will be restocked soon! It's such a great price point for the quality, too. It's lined with a soft almost flannel-like material but it's still thin enough to wear during warmer days (it was in the 60s today when I wore it). I can definitely see many ways to style this in the next coming months!
