Sunday, January 29, 2012's that kind of day...

I feel like sleeping in. For the entire day. Just staying in bed, cup of tea in hand, watching whatever my little heart desires. But alas, that's not possible due to the level of noise bouncing off of the
 walls in my home and reverberating through every single room and the basket of overflowing laundry that's frowning at me from its dejected sad corner.  Uuuuuuggggh. I fucking hate Sundays.

Nail color- O.P.I nail lacquer in Dim Sum Plum (gift from GramGram-thanks, GramGram! :)...)

So much for wishful thinking, huh?

love (yawn),

grey afternoon

I thrifted this sweater, and it's so soft and chunky and warm that I instantly fell in love with it!

Lovely scents...

I'm a sucker for tastefully wrapped soaps and lotions, so when I spied these, I just had to snatch them up! The soaps smell lovely, too-the two I bought are coconut-y and vanilla-y.. The lotion has a light floral scent with warm, spicy undertones, and it is super moisturizing.

style feature: my sis lil sis was kind enough to let me style her as a feature for my blog.  Styling her was simple because everything looks good on her (lucky bitch!). 

We started with a simple very geometric cut summery dress. The back is amaaaazing! (We spied it at Pacsun, and we both wanted it, but it looked much better on her (again, lucky bitch!), so she bought it. 

....Added a hint of color with a very light pink scarf....

...Because it is a bit chilly here, we layered the dress with a horizontally striped sweater. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! I finally pulled of a stripe-on-stripe look!

...She is a minimalist when it comes to jewelry, and besides I didn't want to overshadow the cut of the dress by loading on jewelry, so she went without. I mean, really, this dress should be the shining star of any outfit! 

For the rest of the ensemble, she wore black tights and wedged sandals....
...oh, and a black trench coat completed the look, and kept her toasty!
