I had planned to get this post up a little bit sooner, but I’m blaming my delay on Southwest Airlines (no pun intended).
Andrew and I went to St. Louis over the weekend for his cousin’s 40th birthday party. It was so much fun. He was born in 1976, obviously, so there was a ton of candy from the 70’s (Whatchamacallits, Bit O’ Honey, Razzles, Pop Rocks, Sugar Daddy, Zots, Lemonheads, candy cigarettes, and more), 1976 trivia cards, and other “40” decor. It was at a bowling alley so we also bowled a bit. I am a horrible bowler. I didn’t even break 100, hah. I was supposed to have an early flight back Sunday so that I could get some stuff done, run some errands, and do what I could before this week, but that didn’t happen. We had a crazy rushed morning that involved an Uber mix-up and going way over the speed limit on the way to the airport. We got there about 5 minutes before we started boarding. Then an announcement: “Flight 19 to Dallas gate has been changed to Gate 4.” Ok, let’s go to gate 4. As we’re walking past one of the departures monitors, I glance over and see “Now 12:15” written next to “Dallas” – a full 3 hours after we’re supposed to take off. I try to pretend that it must be wrong, ‘they didn’t announce a delay and surely they would have told us if the flight was delayed when they announced the gate change’ I told myself. WRONG. The flight was delayed for 3.5 hours and I got back to Dallas around 3. I did some training with my pups (they’re 4 years old and 2.5 years old so not exactly pups, but they ‘ll always be my babies), went to the grocery store, made dinner, and then it was time for Shameless followed by RHONJ. Ok, I admit that I could have gotten this post done when I got home, but after that delay nothing nice was going to come out of my mouth haha. But I do have to say, Southwest is better than other airlines. They gave everyone on our flight a $100 voucher for our next trip, which is really considerate, generous, and excellent customer service.
Now on to the important stuff, like this outfit.
First, let me say that Ann Taylor’s scarf game is ON POINT. I stopped in there to return a necklace that I bought, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of this printed scarf. The colors are so beautiful together, and let’s be honest, the scarf ties this whole look together. This olive green dress is a great basic for your work wardrobe and can be mixed with so much. It’s truly a neutral. I love it paired with this hot pink blazer and these adorable pink bow heels. I snagged the heels on the same trip to Ann Taylor. The pink and gold ring is also from AT, shades are Tory Burch (also in this post), bracelets are Kendra Scott and Gorjana, and bag is Vince Camuto. Just like Elle Woods, I’m a fan of wearing pink to work. Shop the look below! Xo, AL
