look book: laid back daze

April 2, 2012

 This Saturday threatened rain all day so I had to dress comfy in lots of layers. Luckily Matthew and I didn't get caught in the rain until 5 minutes after these photos were taken. My blue suede shoes might not have been the best choice but they survived! Thank goodness!

This weekend was really nice. Saturday was busy with errands around town and Sunday was spent helping my friend Eden prepare for her baby shower next weekend! She's the first of my friends to have a baby and I couldn't be more excited!! I thought about tricking you all with an April Fools Joke on a related topic but I just couldn't do it :) Although I did get my parents for a good 3 seconds! haha

  30. Fabulous outfit. You look sooo comfy! And I love how great you look with your hair both down & up in a pony. I used to hate the way my hair looked in a pony until I got bangs. But you, my gorgeous friend, can pull off anything! :o)
