Pretty Plaid

Remember those 3 seconds when my skin was a healthy shade of reddish-tan?  I remember....(Sigh)

Here I am, back to being my white, pasty self.  It's ok, really.  Some of the most beautiful Hollywood actresses are pasty white (I keep telling myself).  Healthy glows are so overrated.  Over the last few days, my sunburned feet have begun to peel.  The other night, my skin was coming off in sheets.  Yeah, it's really gross, but it's also really fun.    Let's be real here, people.  Who doesn't enjoy peeling a hard-earned sunburn?  It's oddly fascinating, isn't it?

Well, now that I've revealed my disgusting, skin-peeling secret and perhaps grossed a few of you out, let's talk about my outfit, ok?

The items I'm wearing here are several years old and were all well under $10.  Except the shoes.  They were marked waaaaaayyy down at DSW.  I think the regular price was $120 or some ridiculous amount I would never pay.  They came to me for less than $25.  They're one of the most comfortable pair of heels I own.

I really love this plaid skirt because the colors are so pretty and girly.  Most other plaid prints in my wardrobe consist of darker, more gender-neutral colors.  I do believe this skirt is Isaac Mizrahi for Target.  I was pretty bummed when his line went away...he had some good stuff.  Thankfully, Target continues to reel me in with their ever-evolving clothing section, Isaac or no Isaac.  Thanks for making it up to me, Target.

A big thanks to lovely Jane at See Jane Remix for the blog award!

Hey, look!  The award matches my outfit!

This award requires the recipient to share 10 things about themselves.  It was a stretch for me to come up with 7 things here, so I'll carry those over and just list an additional 3.

1.  I have self-diagnosed myself as a sufferer of RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), which is just about the lamest condition ever.  But I swear, I've had it since my late teens, before the annoying pharmecutical commercials got involved.

2.  I try to design my excel spreadsheets so all of the cells are the same width and height.  At the very least each cell has to be set at an even number.  I am the only one I know who does this, so if anyone else can relate, let me know, because I feel like a weirdo.

3.  My alarm clock is of the fancy sort that projects the time on the ceiling so I never have to roll over.   I'm not even embarrassed about how lazy that makes me.  In fact, I'm rather proud.

I am a new follower to this blog, but I have to tell you...the revelation about liking to peel your healing sun burn makes me enjoy your blog so much more!!! Everyone always thinks that my sisters and I are crazy because we all like to peel our sun burns...too funny:).

The Excel thing is a little weird. I'm not gonna lie. :)

I really want one of those alarm clocks. My father-in-law got one for Christmas.
