Cranberry Parfait

I was totally not feeling these pictures when we took them yesterday as I was feeling a wee bit "blah". I've found myself back in the habit of not getting in "real people" clothes until about 3:30 or 4pm... if at all! I'm not the happiest to roll out of bed and get to work on the computer when there's not a lot of natural light. Can't wait to have so many windows in the new place! My hair is looking all kinds of frazzled lately, too. But then again who am I kidding? That's my hair's permanent state. I wonder how long until I get unsolicited emails pitching hair care and basic grooming! I promise I'm holding it together! 

This dress and these Jeffrey Campbells are some other goodies I grabbed from ModCloth's Cabin Fever Haul. I'm really glad I got the shoes on mega clearance because I wasn't totally sold on them upon their arrival. They're cute and comfortable (they remind me a lot of my Blowfish Garrens!), but the craftsmanship on the woodwork left much to be desired! Something about this dress and cardi combo makes me feel like a teacher. The dress is the perfect length though so I'm in love with it! It'll be one that can last through Spring and Summer sans tights. The title is inspired by not only the color palette, but my  favorite breakfast food... lately I've been loving yogurt with blueberries, grapes (!!!), and maple pecan granola. You know, just incase you were curious about my usual morning habits haha 

Not a whole lot is going on in our world. Lots of design clients and daydreaming about decorating the house. I'm trying to avoid wasting my entire day on Pinterest, but it's really hard! We're finishing up the last 2 episodes of Sons of Anarchy tonight and I'm totally pumped on it. We've taken a bit of a break to watch 2 full seasons of Parks and Recreations since Mike had never seen it before. It's been nice to veg out with a homecooked dinner and Netflix each night, I won't lie. But somethings telling me I be a bit more pumped to burn the midnight oil after we finish our favorite tv shows! 

That about does it for me today, Honeybees. I'm going to leave you with a creepy picture of my rendition of "pigeon toes"... the blogger favorite! (Disclaimer: I'm totally guilty.) 

Did any of you pick up anything in the ModCloth sale? I know a few gals snagged this dress, so I'd love to see how you styled it! Leave a link below if you post about it!

  4. I love how put together you look in heels : ) And the waistband accent on that dress is adorable.

    I'm not sure if I'm thinking about the same Modcloth sale, but I picked up a faux leather jacket on there for a great price. It's the kind that has the leather body part and then the arms are in a different khaki style fabric. Love it!

  5. Love those heels! I wish I had gotten those! Oh man I managed to snab a pair of shoes though during that sale!

  7. I love the colors in this! That cranberry cardigan is the perfect color for that dress!

    & I know how you feel when it comes to needing natural light, I have to open all of the blinds in the morning so I can get moving in the morning!

  9. You look gorgeous! I'm kicking myself for not buying that dress during the sale. I spent a solid chunk of my gas money as it is though, haha.

  10. I love the look, and the cranberry tones are gorgeous. It's tough finding dresses that can work for Summer with no tights, so yea for that! I have been eating my share of granola, fruit, and yogurt as well. Must be something in the air :)

  12. Kaelah, I've never understood why some people seem to have a problem with your style being pretty much the same thing everyday (dress, tights, cardigan); you do it SO perfectly that I don't see why you should try anything different unless you really wanted to!

  29. I actually adore this outfit, the dress is such a pretty length and the colour combination is gorgeous and matches your hair! :) I have so much trouble keeping my hair in a good state, I often think if I was made of money the one thing I would do would be to go to the hairdresser every week for a blowdry/style!!! Would be awesome! x

  32. That's a really pretty color on you. It makes you glow.

    ReplyDelete
  33. If it makes you feel any better, you don't look frazzled, just gorgeous as usual :)
    I love all the pink with that dress! I don't even recall seeing that in the sale! I snagged a really lovely leather jacket from the sale (too bad its been in the 80s since I got it...) and I found out my boyfriend bought me a FEW dresses from the sale for Valentine's Day!! I'm so excited to see them! I'm not really supposed to know though, so shhh ;)

  36. I love this dress, gosh girl, your wardrobe is full of fabulous. I love cranberry colored anything, sometimes I pour a glass of cranberry cocktail and just stare at it in the sun. I wish I had money to pick up anything from modcloth, soo much modcloth love lately.

  40. I think you look adorable - plus, your bright colors have got me thinking spring...!

  41. Color looks very pretty on you and I like your messy hair :)

  42. While I did not get that dress, I did purchase another dress, as well as a top and a scarf (I know, I know, I don't wear a dress every day- but I'm getting there. :D), all for only about $40!! (Eek!!) Which is amazing, because as a teenage girl with a VERY small budget, it usually means that I have to excercise extreme constraint when it comes to buying things. I basically drool (Ick right?... maybe bad word choice) over ModCloth every day, and I absolutely ADORE their sales. Anyways, you look gorgeous as always!

  44. Parks & Rec!!! Mike is going to love it. I got my boyfriend hooked. That show has turned many of my frowns upside down.

    I was so bummed about not being able to buy anything from the Cabin Fever sale. I saw those shoes on there for full price the first morning, then refreshed my browser and they were $100 off! I called my mom and asked if she wanted to buy me a birthday present a few months early.

    ... She didnt ;)

    But I'm glad you got to snag those! You look adorable, as per usual. The colors here make me want to drink a glass of fruit punch.

  46. I never even thought about what it must be like to get up without natural sunlight... oh man! That part of the loft must not be much fun. I *hate* man-made light (it always comes out so yellow!). Those windows in the new house will be super-duper awesome. <3

    And we should form a club. The "I can't get my hair to do what I want" club. My hair always turns out so flat. I dried it differently yesterday and it seemed to work, so here's hoping it works a second time!

  47. I bought these shoes too. I totally see what you mean about the craftmanship on the wood- it's definitely not very...polished. But they look so cute with this dress (which I wish I saw...). I'm super excited to dress up in my own new purchases now!

  48. You look positively adorable! c:
