Mean it. Meant it.

I went from having no Memorial Day plans to spending the morning with Marcus’ family at brunch, the afternoon at a pool party with some of my favorite ladies (Erica, Galina and Linds…there were men there as well, but we were enjoying lady-time.), and the evening with my family BBQ-ing. 

It was a wonderfully relaxing way to end such a busy weekend.  And it gave me the chance to take in some much-needed Vitamin D.  AKA some quality time to tan like I mean it.

I meant it.

To return to the realm of The Royals, as I did in Engagement Whispers, June 3rd and 4th are almost upon us!  Truth be told, I think that Sarah Ferguson has really made her best effort to ruin the timing with her scandal (I mean, seriously), BUT that’s all the more reason to draw the nation’s eyes back to the more well-behaved royals.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Kate, it’s that she doesn’t throw herself into the spotlight.  And that’s what works for the Windsors.

I really can’t wait for them to crack open those cases of Dom Perignon.  And, on a more superficial note (I mean, how much more superficial can you get than champagne, really?), I REALLY can’t wait to see what Kate wears through all of this.

It takes two.

I know, I know, I’m so shopping heavy lately. Consider yourselves warned, tomorrow isn’t going to be much better.

I rolled over to Kohl’s this morning because last year their Memorial Day sale was actually, really good.  Today, I went, bought two tops for work, got them home and now have decided that I hate them and will be returning them at my earliest opportunity.  Possibly today, still.  Whatever.  If it’s not worth it, it’s not worth it.

So what could be right and good about the world?

Roll with me.

Y’all should know that when I find a top I love at Target, I usually buy two (in different colors), that way I can destroy one and not be heartbroken.  I have two shawl-collar Merona sweatshirts (in purple and dark gray) and two Mossimo cowl-necked brunch sweaters (in black and gray).  But only when it’s really worth it.  If you have the “buy two” intuition, it would be best for you to listen to that.

So I’ve been coveting the sweater on the right, from Anthropologie for the last…month or so because, you know, it’s $78.  $78 = Coveting.  And then, yesterday while I was at Target, I found the sweater on the left.  For $18.  I bought two.  Red and gray.

I post this with the full-knowledge that it is now entirely possible that everyone I know will go out and buy it and we’ll all run into each other wearing it.  For what it’s worth, it will be fabulous.

Get it.
