A Yea Kinda Day

It started at 7:00am as an ordinary day, in my ordinary get-up.  In fact, I was doing so well lately with the styling, that I was a bit of an upset to myself when I resorted back to my trusty standby.
That's right, the skinny jean/tshirt combo I've come to rely on in a pinch.  Yet, I tried to look at it this way: 

If it's not broken, why fix it?

After all, the outfit works, it keeps me looking easy and casual without any fuss.  Although, don't be fooled, it somehow still takes me 75min. to get ready in the morning....yeah I know, WTF?
Wearing:
*Lilac t-shirt, H&M
*Dark denim skinny jeans, Uniqlo
*Brown leather cowboy booties, Steve Madden
*Brown wooden necklace, Forever 21
*Gold octopus necklace, from Somewhere in Cleveland

After a late night at work, things started going from just ordinary to kinda cool.
For one, the BF was not home when I arrived.  And I managed to get a ton of stuff done
*Heated the oven
*washed my face and put on a mint julep mask
*put 3 batches of cookies in the oven
*took some poor quality photos (as usual)
*managed not to burn cookies
*opened my mail-to which a little package was awaiting me

The package was from Lucky magazine.  And for the life of me I could not remember why or what I might be receiving from them.  On occasion I enter their giveaways, but who really wins those?  I haven't renewed a subscription in a few months, so I knew it wasn't that crappy bag they try to give you with a subscription.....so what, what could it be?
Oh yes, when I opened it up, I saw a little card from Lucky-Style-Spotter and it all came back to me.  I had entered a Ray Ban contest.  I have since forgotten the details, but who cares.
I freakin one myself a pair of 

RAY BAN WAYFARERS!

I think that oufit is anything but ordinary! I just love skinny jeans and tees, and the boots really give it your own style! Love it! Congrats on the wayfarers!

You lucky, lucky, lucky girl! Classic black ones or tortoise shell? :) Or dare I ask, a different color? They have this aqua colored pair that I was dying to get but they sold out.

First a hip bicycle, then a sweet pair of shades, whatever will you win next?

I also see that you've been baking.

As always, I enjoyed your blogging, keep up the good work.

holy crap those sunglasses are awesome. what a great win!

i love baking cookies, and i love your pictures with them. so great!

btw: although i love pregnant ladies, i have not always embraced pregnancy. until about a year ago (and occasionally still) i viewed pregnancy as a parasite inhabiting the body that had to come out in the worst way possible and then you still had to take care of it. at least with a tapeworm they get rid of it. it's not so horrific to me now, but i just wanted to share that i completely understand when others do not feel the same. :)

xo.
