So no sooner as we started to unpack from our D.C. trip that we got word we had to leave again this morning for another destination. We will be on the road until Tuesday, which means blogging will be adventurous. I only have my Macbook and I'm still trying to learn my way around it after being a windows girl for so long.
While Mr. M is in a meeting I'm enscounced at Barnes & Noble right in the middle of a book aisle. I asked one of the employees if they had a place where I could plug in my laptop and she promptly pulled a table over to a pillar that had an outlet built in. I said are you sure? Of course! she replied. Such nice people at Barnes & Noble.
People keep staring at me as they turn to go down the aisle, they must think I'm doing a book signing, ha.
I know, get it on with it Moodboard, what do you mean you only lasted 22 days? Well I'm trying to avoid having to admit my failing. While trying to find Barnes & Noble this morning I stumbled across the local mall in town. I decided to ramble around while getting some lunch that exceeds your daily fat intake by three days. There it was, a Forever 21 spanning what appeared to be the length of the mall. I walked smugly by as I was on a no China buy and looking for that crispy Chick-fil-a sandwich and icy cherry Coke.
It must have been the sugar high. I convinced myself that since I had a gc leftover from Christmas to F21 that a purchase didn't count, because I received it before I made my New Year's Resolutions. See how that works? N0? I know, I'm pushing it.
So after combing the store, I stopped in my tracks, because there was the perfect "cozy" (what Moodboard calls something she can loll around in all day). Shaped like a military jacket, it is double breasted, pockets, with epaulets on the shoulders. The seams have raw edges and the collar and extra long sleeves(loooooove) have wire in them so you can bend and destroy the shape as desired. It has a plush jersey texture, 100% cotton(yes, believe it), and comes in a khaki brown color.
Best of all it, the Rugged Knit Coat is $34.80. Worst of all, it is made in China. And I bought it. I failed. But I'm back on the wagon trail.
