Pizza and Board Games

One of my so-called resolutions for the new year was to "keep it real" - And when I say keep it real, I mean to not worry so much whether something is particularly "fashionable" or not before I post it here. We can't all be fashion models every single day, so why feel like we should!? Onto this weekend ensemble...

Keeping it real (01/15/11)
Sweater: Mossimo Supply Co, Thrifted, $2 (though I bought it with a gifted gift card... so free, sort of!)
Jeans: Old Navy, $10
White Scarf: Apt 9, Kohl's
Gold Scarf: ?, Plato's Closet
Boots: American Eagle, FREE (a co-worker gave them to me!)
Satchel: Nilo (in tan), Mimi Boutique, FREE (won in a giveaway on their facebook page!)
Glasses: SEE Eyewear

Keeping it real here in Michigan means keeping warm. I'm at the point in this season known as winter where I am so. ready. to. be. done. with. it. I can't take the cold anymore! Snow is fine. Snow is pretty. Snow I can handle. But the cold? Oh my goodness, so sick of it. I'm sure all of you cold weather ladies can relate.

My new Nilo satchel from Mimi Boutique!

How about this bag? Gorgeous, right? I've been craving the perfect camel tan satchel for the longest time and then, bam, I find out I won this amazing bag from Mimi Boutique! I was over the moon, to say the least.

It has quickly become my go-to bag. It goes with so much... even black, which, if you've paid attention, I've had my issues with mixing the two colors together. This bag was the perfect extra dose of medicine I needed to get over that!

Can't wait to show her off more... I did just a few quick pictures here because we were actually on our way to my older brother's house for a night of pizza and Scattergories.

Hope you guys had a great weekend!
