I don't know about y'all, but I could really use another day in the weekend.  We were blessed with fabulous weather this weekend and as a result everyone and their mom was out and about.  I spent thirty minutes waiting in line to get Chick-fil-a from the food court.  Thirty.  Minutes.  If that's not dedication for some sweat tea, I don't know what is.  I mean, what’s a girl to do when that’s the only Chick-fil-a within 20 miles?

I'm already debating how many times a week I can wear this shirt before people start to notice.  I'm hoping it's somewhere around 3 because its the perfect weight to wear by itself but is thin enough to layer under my coats and is amazingly comfortable.  I wore it to volunteer at church where I’m constantly chasing kiddos around and it withstood that test, so it’s a keeper in my book.  I found it while I was making returns shopping at Nordstrom this past Saturday and knew I had to bring it home.  It's by Sun and Shadow which is a great brand for finding really affordable basics.  This particular top is still in stock in all sizes & colors and is under $25!  I’ll probably be purchasing a few more because at that price, it’s just too good to pass up. 

There’s something about pairing plaid and leopard that I absolutely love for winter.  It brings dimension to your neutral outfits and if I’m being completely honest, carrying this little leopard clutch makes my heart pretty dang happy.  I posted about it this past fall right after I got it and I am happy to report that the quality is amazing and it still looks brand new!  Just a little tip on calf hair accessories – make sure you store them in their proper bag/box to keep them from getting worn when other things touch them.  Now, I’m usually not a fan of infinity scarves because you’re pretty limited with how many different ways you can wear them, but I made an exception for this one.  Most of my scarves tend to be more on the lighter neutral side, so I was excited to add something with a darker color scheme to my collection!  Plus, this one is a great price and is something you can wear all fall/winter long.

I hope you’re a little more prepared for this Monday than I am.  I decided to start the month of February off on the right foot with menu planning, so today I’ll be tackling the grocery store and cooking things for the week.  Wish me luck!
