Polar Bears




Monday is here again.  Although my Saturday was incredibly productive... laundry, hang out with Lisa, dinner, shopping*, coffee**, nap, 80s dance party***... My Sunday was a complete waste.  Oh well, there is always next Sunday right?

For this outfit, I feel like I was channeling Rachel from Glee.  The sweater?  If you went to Urban Outfitters at all over the Christmas season, you probably saw it.  I was smart and asked for it for Christmas.... and I love it.  It is great because it looks more sophisticated than you think.  I know I know, I'm 26 years old and wearing an animal sweater?  But really, unless you really look at it, you don't even realize its a polar bear... with claws. 

Sweater: Urban Outfitters
Dress (work as a skirt): courtesy of Kristin of Leproust (miss her)
Tights: We Love Colors in Navy
Shoes: Target

*My favorite place to shop, Local Honey had a grand re-opening/shop-warming party on Saturday night.  Tons of fun and killer cocktails made with Hawaiian Punch.
**Well actually it was hot chocolate.
***I don't typically go to 80s dance parties... just got invited to one.  It was also a goth night too.  Talk about people watching.  Wow!  I wore the outfit above and claimed I was New Wave 80s grunge?

  5. Love the sweater! I don't think I could refuse an 80s party, or any dance party for that matter. It's the only chance I ever get to bust my awesome (okay, horrible and embarrassing) moves.

  9. Your polar bear rocks! It doesn't matter how old we are, the only thing that matters is how old we FEEL we are :)
