Things I Love Thursday: 7/6/2012

Thank God it’s Thursday!  This past week has been truly higgledy-piggledy, full of false starts and craziness.  I always look forward to Thursdays because it gives me a chance to take a deep breath and think about all the things that I feel grateful for.


This week, I love:

-Running.  I went for a jog on the weekend and I managed to do nearly an entire circuit without stopping to walk.  I felt so proud of myself, and I could barely wipe the grin off my face as I bolted about the running track.

– My Cosby sweater from Mondays’ outfit post

– This Sally doll Ross bought for me this week.  It used to be a Micky Mouse doll, but it’s been repainted as Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas.  She’s sitting in front of my computer at the moment.

– Apple-print tights.  These were a gift from Ross’s mum.  She also bought me a pair with little stilettos printed on them.  I’ll make sure I take a picture when I wear those ones!


– Knitting.  I bought a bunch of knitting yarn on the weekend, and I’ve managed to rattle off a couple of little projects.


– Paying somebody else to mow our lawn.  This house has the biggest lawn I’ve ever had, and I despise gardening.  Ross and I have been holding a stand-off for about a month to see who will cave and do the mowing.  It got to the point where our front yard had grown into a jungle that neither one of us could tackle.  So we caved and paid someone to do it for us, and the yard looks lovely once more.


-Birthday anticipation!  My 26th birthday is this Saturday, and I am really looking forward to it.  I’m having a Harry Potter-themed party.


– The way that Ross will cover my feet with his to warm them up when I get back into bed after grabbing a midnight drink.


Oh, I also have an outfit to share with you today.

I am wearing:

– Black beret from Target

– Black bodysuit from Supre

– Black and white striped blazer from CKM

– Red and Black skirt from 7 Angels

– Black snakeskin stilettos from Nine West

– Amethyst ring

– Ace of Spades necklace from Diva

– Glasses from Clearly Contacts


I found this skirt in a box of stuff my parents had been storing at their house.  I bought it when I was fourteen, and I used to wear it all the time.  It’s actually a bright red skirt with a black mesh overlay, so it look darker and the colour shimmers with the light.  This style used to be all the rage when I was in high school.  It’s not cool anymore, but I have such fond memories of this skirt that I wanted to restyle it and wear it once more.


What do you love this week?


  1. ZOMG! I want that Sally/Mickey doll and I want to go to a Harry Potter themed birthday party! Hope you had a great day!! xox

    • I think she’s pretty cute too. The party was a huge success. You’d have had a great time. (Now I’m kicking myself that I didn’t send you an invite).
