Shiver me {ten}-bers




Top - American Eagle
Skirt - Ann Taylor
Boots - Steve Madden
Necklace - Target
Knee socks - Target

Here's an up-close shot of the lips:


Oh, and you notice what's behind me in the back seat of my car?

Let me tell you a story...

This morning I decided to pop into my local U-Haul store to get some of those awesome
wardrobe boxes.  You know, the ones that let you hang things up so that you aren't
going through boxes upon boxes of folded clothes and having to put them on hangers?
Yep, those.  Well, let's just say they need to re-think their design.  They do not fit into
normal sized cars when they are collapsed.  So, it took me 25 minutes to try and figure
out how in the world I was going to fit not only one box - but TWO into my sedan.

And here's a better shot of those boxes...


Here's to more packing! :)

Dressed to the nines



Top - Vintage (thrifted)
Skirt - J. Crew (this was chosen in place of one of my dresses)
Shoes - Target
Necklace - No clue
Earrings - Belk

I don't have too much to talk about today.  I think my mind has officially turned off
due to all of the packing, organizing, separating, more packing, figuring out the living
situation, packing some more, stressing, coordinating and...did I mention packing?

I can't wait to show y'all the pictures of my new place in Montgomery though!  I am head
over heels for it.  I really can't wait to start decorating it and making it my own - or at
least half my own since I will have a roommate.  Hopefully once things settle down for me
I'll have more time to concentrate on some home decor projects and crafts  :)

The eight ball





Jacket - Nordstrom
Jeans - Gap via a yardsale (got them for $2 bucks!)
Necklace - Armelle Jewelry

Well, packing is in full swing!  And of course, when I'm cooped up inside my office
or packing inside my apartment, it is absolutely beautiful outside.  C'est la vie.
I'm getting more and more excited about the move!  Especially now that I think I
know where I'll be living - that was a big question mark that was making me a bit nervous.

So, let's see what is marked off the list...

Job - Check!
Home - Check!
Boyfriend - Check!

Looks like Montgomery is going to be the best yet :)

P.S. - Have you noticed that I've been wearing my hair up a lot recently?  I've been lazy
and haven't been wanting to thoroughly blow dry my hair.  I admit it.  Plus, my hair is at
that awkward stage where its not really short but its definitely not long.  One day I'll
have long golden flowing locks again...Let's just hope I'm not 40 years old when that happens.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers



Dress - J. Crew
Cardigan - J. Crew
Wedges - Urban Outfitters
Headband - J. Crew
Earrings - Anthropologie

Y'all our weather has been crazy.  I know I've probably exhausted the topic of the
weather, but seriously - how can it snow last week and be 60-something degrees
this week?  It messes me up.  Is it just as crazy where you are?  Please say yes.

Six Degrees of Separation




Shirt - Banana Republic
Cardigan - J. Crew
Jeans - American Eagle
Shoes - Target
Earrings - Forever 21
Sunglasses - Ray Ban

I'm going to tell you something...

I hate packing.

Right now, my life is packed up in boxes and I'm living off of frozen food and
whatever is left over in my pantry.  My clothes are separated into 5 different piles:

1.  Clothes for work
2.  Clothes for play
3.  Clothes for spring/summer
4.  Clothes that go to Goodwill
5.  Clothes that I can't part with but don't fit into any of the above categories

Now, onto the rest of the house.  I'm trying to view this as organizing and not packing.
If you don't hear from me for a few days its because I've accidently packed myself up
into a box and am unable to undo the packing tape.  Wish my luck people.  I'll need it :)

Lovey dovey


Have a lovely Valentine's Day :)

Gimme Five




Top - American Eagle
Pants - Gap
Wedges - Urban Outfitters
Earrings - No idea
Necklace - Target

Since I had to get to work this morning at 6:30, needless to say I'm exhausted.
So, I don't have too many words to say to y'all.  Hopefully I'll be more awake tomorrow.
Let's cross our fingers...

Since I don't have too much to say I will leave you with this picture of me saying:

"Did that last picture show my fat roll??  It totally did, didn't it?"

Four flights of fancy






Top - Old Navy
Skirt - Ann Taylor (it's navy blue)
Necklace - Old as dirt {no idea where it came from}

There are BIG things going on in my world.  Big things people.  The next few weeks
are going to be a bit crazy.  So I'll go ahead and apologize for the sporadic posting.
I have been offered a position in Montgomery, Alabama (about 3 hours south of where
I live now) and the boyfriend and I will finally be living in the same city!  Wahoooooo!

So, what does this mean?

I put in my two weeks notice at my current job today.
I will be packing up my entire life in boxes over the next two weeks.
I'll probably stress out a little.  Maybe even cry.
But I am over the moon excited!

So get ready for some random posts and updates on my move to our state's capital!
Montgomery...here I come!!!

Three times a lady




Dress - J. Crew
Blazer - Loft
Boots - Steve Madden
Scarf - Old Navy
Belt - Forever 21
Tights - HUE

Oh. my. gosh.  It was so cold outside during these photos.  I'm just not a cold weather gal.
I am dreaming of the day when we reach weather in the 60s!  Oh, wait...We had weather
in the 60s last weekend.  And then it snowed last night.  I don't get it.  I just don't get it.

Oh, and if you care to know what I look like when I'm freezing my behind off...

Double Doozy





Top - Old Navy
Jeans - American Eagle
Boots - Steve Madden
Scarf - Old Navy
Sunglasses - Ray Ban

Dearest Winter,

I am getting tired of your shinanigans.  You make shaving my legs in the morning pointless
since by the time I get to my car I have chill bumps all over me.  In order to fully get over
your ridiculousness I am wearing spring colors.  That's right.  You can't stop me.  I refuse
to have you rain on my parade.  But if you do decide to rain, could we at least make it
during my non-photo shoot outside hours?  I really don't want a repeat of Tuesday.

Best Regards,
Sincerely, 
From, Kelley

One in a million (or 30)




Top - Gap
Skirt - Belk
Heels - Me Too via Marshall's
Tights - Hue
Necklace - Purchased on a trip to Venice, Italy

I am so excited about this 30 for 30!  This will be my second one and I feel like
I'm more prepared for this one.  Like I'm ready to take more chances with my
remixes.  I'm ready to mix patterns and colors like I never have before!  Okay,
I think I'm getting a little carried away.  Anyways, since it was pouring rain today
I took my pictures under the awning at work.  Where everyone could pass by me.
And I've gotten to the point that if people want to stare at me taking pictures, well,
that's fine with me.  They're just jealous of my fantastic floral skirt.  As they should be ;)

A beautiful bow


The second I saw these necklaces I fell.  Hard.  I swoon.  I die.
Seriously, could these get any more adorable?  I think not.
