recap: january

laterz, january
[wearing]
lots of pants.  winter, pencil skirt apathy, and a big project under construction at work have resulted in pants being the best option this month.

[reading]
i finished two of the books i started last year: life of pi and the wind-up bird chronicle (seriously, this one didn't get interesting until about page 400) and started a few new ones.  i'm finally listening to extremely loud and incredibly close in the car per elena's suggestion.

[watching]
downton abbey (duh.)
and we saw zero dark thirty and silver linings playbook at the moooovies this month, so i definitely got my popcorn/sad movies quota filled. 

[buying]
whoa hey, it was kinda a crazy month for shopping.  i was going to blame post-christmas sales, but really my shunning of pencil skirts is more to blame.

marc jacobs metallic clutch (neiman marcus x target christmas collection): $20.99.  it's a cute little shiny guy and i might have ordered a few more for future gifting. (worn in this post)

steve madden spike flats (nordstrom rack): $49.99.  they're tougher than i am and i have yet to impale myself with them. (worn in this post)

mossimo neon lime boyfriend cardigan (target): $13.98.  slouchy, bright, and bought to replace a black long cardigan that has seen better days. (worn in this post)

mossimo hot pink tweed moto jacket (target): $17.48.  i realized that i've been wearing jackets to work a whole lot lately, so the second time i saw this on the clearance rack at target i made my move. (worn in this post)

zara black pleated pants: $29.99.  they're a little high-waisted and a little audrey hepburn in sabrina.  they're totes my new favorite work pants. (worn in this post)

zara cutout dress: $49.99.  maybe it's because i've been going to too many yoga classes, but black stretchy fabric, criss-cross straps, and side cutouts seem very normal now.  oops.

zara shiny flat court shoes: $29.99.  some of my other fun flats need to be retired, so this is the next generation.  

forever21 leopard coat: $15.90.  basically a stuffed animal.  this is a totally silly and trendy purchase, but i'm not denying that.  

forever21 cutout back shirt: $14.90.  (see cutouts notes above.)

total: $243.81
p.s. i'm linking up with franishhhh's budgeting bloggers this month.  

[yoga-ing]
a whole bunch of that lately.  i've leveled up from the beginner classes and am back to feeling super weak and wobbley.  i even went to my very first spin class with fancy real ryder bikes.  it was some odd combination of club-level loud music, burning quads, and yelling about hills and turning.  being able to pedal like crazy for 45 minutes straight seems like a big accomplishment for this formerly super out-of-shape girl though.  

[designing]
nothing fun at work this month, so i got my illustrator-ness out by switching up my blog header.  click on through and check it out if you're a google reader.  


[drinking]
oberweiss chocolate milk.  seriously so delicious.  and our apartment has an old milk door, so i think it's appropriate that we get glass-bottled milk.  finding a milkman is our next logical step.
