play to win...but also...win to play

Had the most amazing day with my boyfriend today! I'm so sad he's going to be leaving on Tuesday! Super sad face. Today we went to Chili's for lunch (I've been absolutely craving a chicken ranch sandwich) after taking photos in a small town by the lake. Then we went to Steinhafel's Furniture Superstore and sat on all the nice couches (with no intention of buying any...this is when it's best to do this...under no pressure!), which is a favorite thing of ours to do. We then headed back to his house and watched Paranormal Activity, which creeped the bejeebers out of me! Finally we came back to my place and watched a few episodes of The Office.

So, I now debut one of the most amazing antique store finds in the history of my life: a vintage red sequined jacket. Oh, so beautiful, and only $24. I found it the other night when my boyfriend and I popped into a store to browse. (Haha...I say that as if I could ever just "browse.") I fell in love and came home with this treasure (and am considering going back for an extremely cool vintage straw hat...maybe). What do you think?


I decided that a jacket this rad had to be paired with a simple top and bottoms. Then I added pointy-toed flats, an oversized clutch, and shades...ready for anything.





I am currently reading The Handmaid's Tale and am totally engrossed in it. For anyone who hasn't read it, I strongly recommend it (and for those who have read it...read it again!) - it's like nothing I've ever read before...in a good way.

Annie, Time Enough for Drums said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. You are the first person to identify where I got the title for my blog, so congrats, I wish I had a prize for you! Love the red sequined blazer. And, Margaret Atwood is my all-time favorite author. The Handmaid's Tale is amazing; I read it in a feminist theory course in college, actually. It seems we our tastes in fiction are similar! Annie.
