I wasn't lying when I said that I wanted to start pattern mixing more. I've always had a fairly simple/classic style, but something about spring makes me want to experiment a little bit more. When the sun's shining and everyone starts to come out of hibernation (everyone should witness a college town in the Midwest on the first days of spring), it's only natural to feel the need to have a little bit more fun with clothing. I don't see myself ever getting too crazy, but I can handle some fruit and florals together. This Modcloth dress is one of my favorite items that I own, and I'm surprised that it's taken me this long to wear it as a top. I actually always forget that I own both this skirt and this sweater, but they're two fantastic thrifted finds. If this isn't the time for floral skirts, light sweaters, and fruit printed items, then I don't know when is.
I didn't do too much this weekend, which I could not be happier about. I started get sick at the end of last week, and while I'll admit that I'm a giant baby about it, it did give me a good excuse to stay in and catch up on sleep. I had a hot date with NyQuil on Friday, and I begged my friends to give us some alone time. I ended up having a mini impromptu poker night with them on Saturday, but when it came time for everyone to head to the bar, I wasn't feeling up for it. Fortunately, Jenn was in town again, and we had a wild night of McDonald's and "girl talk." I've always considered myself a homebody, but I've gotten coerced into going out pretty regularly this past year. It's been nice to be social for once (within my group of friends, that is. I'm still terrible at meeting new people), but I never underestimate the value of a night in. I don't know about you guys, but someone told me that being lame is the new cool. Okay, it was me. I told myself that. I stand by it.
So what about all of you lovely readers? Are you homebodies or party animals? Since most of you hide behind the Internet like I do, I assume that a majority of you are coffee shop loving gals/Netflix addicts like myself. I envy the social butterflies among you though.
