On Saturday we found ourselves in Muncie (you know, that town they make fun of on Parks & Recreation, the greatest show ever). I didn’t really want to be there, but I had important lawyer things to do. Or something. Actually, if I were really an important lawyer, I wouldn’t have been staying in a Days Inn that hadn’t been remodeled since 1992.
But we made the best of it. After bidding adieu to the butterfly wallpaper (yes, really), we hit up a local farmers’ market and a winery. At that point, we figured we had seen the best Muncie had to offer, so we headed home and then went out with friends to celebrate someone’s completed Bar Exam and upcoming birthday. Oh, right, that someone is me!
This is what I wore for my strange but eventful day. I wore the same top and skirt in Muncie, then amped it up with pumps and a fancy clutch for the evening back in Indy. Had I stayed in Muncie for a night out, I probably could’ve gotten fancy (or, in this case, funcie) by adding a scrunchie. Ooooh, snap! If you’re a Muncie native, I’m just kidding. Mostly.

Can one ever really have too many striped shirts? I think one cannot. But can one sound like a douche bag when one uses the word “one” too much? Yes, one can.

You guys, I had the BEST Saturday. Let me give you the rundown:
- I had a great brunch (hence the oversized sweater…I planned ahead);
- I got a new phone (an iPhone 5c, upgraded from an iPhone 4 that still had iOS5 so I was pretty much living in the dark ages);
- A package of stuff I ordered from J. Crew Factory came in the mail, and it all looks great;
- And finally, I got to debut this stunner of a necklace from Stella & Dot!
I recently met up with Rachael, a new Stella & Dot stylist, and when she showed me this necklace, my reaction was: “It looks like it could be in a museum!” Being the museum nerd that I am, I obviously had to have it.
This is my first Stella & Dot piece, and it’s pretty fabulous. In case you don’t know, you can order from Stella & Dot online, but you can also host trunk shows for yourself and your friends in your own home (and when you do that you get some perks!). If you live in the central Indiana area and want to host a trunk show, be sure to give Rachael a shout at email@example.com or (248) 953-4647.
But if you’re more of a shop online in your pajamas type (like me), I’ll give you a head start and show you a few more of my favorite Stella & Dot pieces. (P.S. That striped scarf has little elephants on it! Don’t even try to tell me you already have a nautical elephant scarf.)

On Tuesday I whipped up this little ensemble for a day of interning. Obviously I didn’t wear the beanie and sunglasses in the office. In hindsight, I’m not sure why I didn’t because it was really cold in there, and my eyes were kinda dry.
By the way, these sunglasses are new – my first March purchase! Can you believe I’ve never owned aviators? What rock have I been living under? I tried some on a long time ago and they looked weird on me, and the silly sunglasses novice that I was thought all aviators were the same shape. I gave them another shot earlier this week and tried on several pairs at Nordstrom Rack. I settled on these from Just Cavalli. I’m pretty sure they make me cooler. Next step: motorcycle. You can drive a motorcycle in pumps, right?
