What I'm Wearing...

Well, Happy Monday... I guess. Everyone have a good weekend? 

This is what I wore Saturday to Caroline's lingerie shower. As I had Tweeted, I was responsible for bringing the alcohol (and plates and cups) because no one trusts me to cook. That's a smart decision. Anyway, I needed to bring something red to coordinate with the invitations and I went with pomegranate martinis. Excellent choice, if I do say so myself and they were very popular. 
*I had just painted my nails that afternoon. Myself. Fairly obvious. 
Top - Express
Cardigan - BCBGeneration
Jeans - Old Navy
Shoes - White House Black Market
Earrings - Limited
Ring - Parisian's, I think. So clearly this is old. I got in college... many years ago. 
Nail polish - Sephora by OPI Teal We Meet Again

Because I'm a genius, I took these at 11pm when I got home. I tend to almost always do that with outfit pictures and it's just not smart. Clearly they would turn out better if I did them right after I was finished getting ready, but what fun is that? This is real life, people. 

Oh, and here is the recipe I used for the pomegranate martinis:
2 parts Pom juice
1 part Stoli vodka
1 tablespoon of simple syrup
Lime wedge
(Tweetphoto I took of one I had at home that night)

I added the Google Search bar over to the right! I should probably make some more changes to the blog but I'm technologically challenged when it comes to that stuff. Oh well.

Hope your week is off to a good start!
