Faking Spring

I've got my mind set on Spring, not matter what Mother Nature has planned.  I am ready for bright colors, bare legs and finally ditching those heavy coats! In the winter I seem to get into a colorless rut, and I am in need of heavy doses of pink, purple and this fabulous turquoise.  I purchased this top for my trip to Florida last month, but I never ended up wearing it.  It seemed perfect for lounging poolside or sipping margaritas but it never made it out of state!

Blanket Statement

Most Friday nights you can find me at a wine tasting.  I like to swirl the wine around my glass and tell the guy running things that I can so totally taste the tannins and apricot notes.  Nah.  I just love me some wine, and typically always walk away with at least one bottle for girls night or to accompany a home cooked meal.  The tastings are always super casual, so I never feel out of place in my jeans.  

Throw on my favorite blanket scarf and I'm ready to go!  I seriously love this scarf!  Check out all the different ways I have styled it:

Drinkin and Antiquin

Hey there!  I hope everyone is having a great week.  I sure am, because I got to visit one of my favorite places in Indy, Midland Art and Antiques Market this weekend.  I could spend a few hours looking around this place for vintage clothing, antiques and great mid-century furniture.  My girlfriend Mandy and I snapped a few pictures after our shopping trip before hitting some local breweries for an Indy flight trip.  We do this regularly and call it Drinkin' and Antiquin'!  If you steal this idea for a hit TV show give me a million dollars please and thanks!

Let's take a minute to talk about this coat.  I have been on the hunt for the perfect leopard coat for years, and just never found the one.  The pattern either seemed too juvenile, the fit wasn't great or it was over $300.  I don't mind spending for a classic winter coat, but I am not sure I can justify that much for a coat when I have a dozen already hanging in my entry closet.   I was happy to find this temporary placeholder a few weeks ago though!  It's not the one, but I like it enough for now and I snagged it on sale for less than $35!  I am happy to keep this coat while I continue my search for the Holy Grail.  Honestly, knowing me I think that I will end up keeping this one and never get another because "I already have one".

In Kinsey's Vacation | Disney and Central Florida

Earlier this year my best girlfriend Mandy and I realized we needed a getaway.  We wanted somewhere warm, and preferably somewhere with a beach.  My best friend from high school, Jimmy, has worked at Disney for years so we decided to fly down to Orlando for a week of exploring, beach time and of course Disney World! Here are some of my favorite snaps from our trip!
My high school BFF Jimmy works for Disney!  It was wonderful to catch up!

Drinks on the Rikki Tiki Tavern on Cocoa Beach Pier

Winter Park, FL.  We actually took this pic after having lunch at Shake Shack!  I know it's a chain, but man I always gotta have it when I see one since we don't have them in Indianapolis.

We loved these canned wines!  Perfect for a little poolside relaxation if you have a no-glass restriction.

Snapped in the Park Aire condo complex in Orlando.

I was so in love with all of the bright colors in Central Florida.  Everywhere you look you see pinks, blues, purples, etc.  Gorgeous!

Taken in the U.K. portion of Epcot!

2 Chokers

I am shivering just looking at these photos!  As I write this, it is nice and sunny outside (can you call 40 degrees nice?), but these were snapped a few weeks ago when we still had a nice blanket of snow.  This is what I wore for a date night with Scot to a local brewery.  I pulled a straight 90s move by wearing not one but two chokers.  6th grade me would be so proud!

Velvet Valentine

Valentine's Day has been one of my favorite holidays for the past several years.  Scot asked me to be his girlfriends on Vday 2011, so it's been a special day for us for 7 years now!  Every year we prepare a steak dinner with lots of vino and stay in.  So I don't need a fabulous dress to stay in and cuddle with Scot, but let me tell ya- if I was going out this would be my dress.  It's a perfect cold weather dress because of the coverage and soft velvet fabric.  And the color?  It's Valentine's perfection without being a bold red.  I'll tell Scot to picture me in this when I show up to our homemade meal in my gym shorts and favorite sweatshirt... you know, romance?
