Hello, loves!  Happy Friday the 13th.  (Bet you thought I was going to say Happy Valentine’s Day, huh?!?)  Well, that’s tomorrow.  Although my BF and I have already celebrated.  We are so horrible because whenever there is a “present holiday” we both get so excited to give each other gifts that we almost never wait until the actual event.

But, we celebrated last evening because it’s our normal Thursday date night and because I have to work extra this weekend at the bar.  And, if that wasn’t enough, I have tons of outlines to grade and return ASAP.

From my Valentine I received 3 Pandora bead clips for my second Pandora bracelet.  It’s one that is a leather/rope type that you wrap around several times, but all of my charms would fall to one side and bunch up.  When we were at the mall awhile back we stopped into the Pandora store and asked the sales associate and she recommended clips.  Now I can wear my more casual charm bracelet!  I got him a Fitbit Charge HR, just like the one that he recently purchased for me.  He had been talking about wanting one non-stop and I almost thought that he was going to purchase one for himself and ruin the surprise.

Last night we went to dinner at a casual Italian place and then went to see the 50 Shades of Grey movie at my request.  I don’t know why the critics are being so hard on the movie!  If you read the books then I think that is exactly what you would have expected the movie to be.  I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but I will say that Dakota Johnson did an amazing job and fulfilled my minds version of Ana perfectly.  Jamie Dornan did better that I thought he would in the role of Christian Grey, but he wasn’t my version of Christian.  I think he had some really big shoes to fill and he did it well, I commend him as an actor.  Lastly, can I just say that Dakota Johnson looked freaking AMAZING and I would like to know her workout and diet plan, ASAP.

Sadly, something happened to my other pictures that I took in this outfit.  I had 6 good ones, but when I went to crop them down to size I wasn’t seeing anything but a scrambled image in iPhoto.  I tried it in Photoshop, too and had the same result.  This is the only picture that wasn’t corrupted.

Just like always, this outfit inspiration came from a picture that I pinned to my boards long ago.  I’ve long searched for a plaid button up that had a similar color palette.  Late last year, I found this one at Old Navy and decided to give it a go.  I wish that it had stripes of red instead of burgundy, but so far it has worked well in a lot of different outfits.

For dinner last night, I added a long-sleeved burgundy t-shirt with a jeweled neckline under the plaid shirt and layered a navy cardigan over it instead of the blazer.  I also swapped out the skirt for dark wash jeans and brown oxford style shoes.

Do you like this outfit?  I know I do!  Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day.
