Masculine Meets Feminine

Blouse: Gap; Skinny Dress Pant: Banana Republic; 
Shoes: Aldo; Belt: Lacoste; Necklace: Bvlgari; 
Watch: Michele; Ring: Tiffany&Co.; Studs: Swarovski, Nordstrom

Closing in on black + silver hardware

This outfit is definitely a polarizing mix of masculine and feminine. The skinny dress pant and nude pump tones down the black blouse and stark hardware. I also was hesitant to mix brown and black. The pant is actually a very fine pinstripe, but you can't really tell. I used to never mix brown and black and thought it to be a definite fashion faux pas, however the more I push the envelope by mixing tan and black, the more I see myself turning tan into brown. We'll see how that works out for me.

SO! Did you all have lovely weekends?! We did the 5k in the rain but it was so fun! And then afterward in the beer garden, it started dumping snow (surprise, surprise). Then we drank green beer at a bar and watched the Zags lose (still heartbroken over that one). We made a new friend in N and R's new neighbor who ran the race with us! Then we all took a 5-hour nap and rallied to go out to an Irish pub that evening. Yesterday, we were worthless. Except for N and I trying out a new brunch spot that we totally love and is less than a mile from our house! Oh- and I made some brownies. Here are some photos from our 5k day:

   Before the race! N loved those XL, 
Plus-size women's tights!

The boys are ready to run to the bar for the Zag game!

We have all decided that we love crazy 5ks and will be signing up for more in the future. Next on the list: the WA Mud Run!
