There are only so many occasions to wear a tutu when you’re not a professional ballerina, but I found another one: celebrating your recent marriage with all your friends. You probably recall the super exciting news from last week that my lady friend and I took advantage of the chance to get our marriage legalized in our (mostly) lovely state of Indiana. But since we did it at the clerk’s office on a Wednesday night, none of our friends could be there. Boo.

Lucky for us, our friends are pretty much the bomb dot com, so a bunch of them got together with us on Saturday for dinner and a sort of reception. We had 2 other friends who got gay married (or as I like to call it, “married”) last week, so it was double the celebration!

Our friend Bob even prepared a ceremony full of lots of mushy stuff, so both of us couples got to reenact our vows with our friends. Cute, right?

I included a couple non-outift photos from the night below. To my fellow Americans: enjoy your holiday weekend!

As I mentioned Monday, I spent most of last weekend in my PJs doing homework. I did get a chance to venture out (had to make an exception for a friend visiting Indy) and this is what I wore. I was excited to get out of the house, but equally if not more excited to have an excuse to put together my first outfit in 3 days. Does that make me weird? Probably. Do I care? No. This cute Peter Pan collar top came in the mail last week and it wanted to go for a spin.

On another note, apparently I need to remind my landlord to mow the grass to a height that is more appropriate for showing off my boots. How inconsiderate.

This trench is another old friend I found during my recent coat closet clean-up. I scored it at the Thakoon collection that came to Target in early 2009. At the time, I was worried that it was too daring and I would think it looked ridiculous in a couple years, but I think I can safely say it’s still pretty awesome 4 years later.

And in other news, IT’S FEBRUARY! That means it’s the first day of my Take One, Pass it On outfit remix challenge. I’m pretty excited. But the real fun starts in my next outfit when I take one item from this outfit (spoiler alert: it’s the polka dot tank) and mix it into a new outfit.
