Off to a Busy Week

 Shirt: Thrifted, Cardigan: Target, Shorts: Express, Heels: Target, Necklace: Gift

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was really good, especially since it started off with date night.  It turns out the boyfriend didn't take me out...instead when I got to his place I found dinner, wine, and candles on the table.  He had made me chicken alfredo pasta (I'm a huge lover of anything pasta)...oh and have I ever mentioned that the boyfriend is an amazing cook?? I really didn't expect a surprise dinner and although I got dressed for a night out, I wouldn't pass up the chance of a sweet romantic dinner with the boyfriend...especially one made by him.  It was a great weekend and I didn't do much but enjoy it but this morning I had so many things to do. Because I was going to be running errands all day,  I decided on this simple outfit with a bit of sparkle. 




Now that I'm finally home, I'm teaching myself how to knit.  It's something I want to try to learn so I can use it in a school project. 
  So far this is as far as I've gotten.  I'm getting the hang of it but wish me luck :)
Have you ever tried knitting?

  7. Love the little bit of sparkle. I can not knit. At all. My sister on the other hand taught herself to both sew and knit almost overnight. She is practically an expert at both. Basically what I am saying is it supposedly can be very easy... just not for me. :) Good luck.

  14. The top is so cute and your golden necklace reminds me of the one Carrie had in Sex and the City. It's really pretty! :)

    I've tried knitting and I don't find it that difficult, but I don't usually have the patience to finish anything.

  16. I have never tried knitting because I am totally hand stupid when it comes to these things. I wish I had the talent, though, because you can make some really cool things.
