april fool's and fashion week thursday

i haven't been much for april fool's day jokes--i'm usually on the receiving end, gullible me--but this year i was rather pleased with my prank wherein i convinced a friend and my mother that my husband had received a job offer from CERN (you know, the atom collision place that's been in the news a lot this past week) and we were moving to switzerland and i didn't get into medical school (true...thus far) and it's okay because i'm actually pregnant and due around halloween and did i mention we were moving to switzerland? =) thing is, the way my life has been recently, it's totally plausible. =)

anyway, here's my clothing for fashion week today, and it's kind of another april fool's joke. the weather forecast said today was going to be in the 70s, but i thought it was the weatherman playing a joke. you see, i live in wisconsin. we don't get into the 70s until june. =) so, my pants and sweater--though usually wholly april-appropriate--were overkill. c'est la vie. also, pardon the face. i was trying to figure out how to get the timer to go off. i succeeded, but a few seconds before i was expecting to. =)

sweater: kohl's, apt. 9
tee: thrifted, express
jeans: thrifted, old navy sweethearts and my new fav. jeans EVER
pearls: a gift from my dad
earrings: a gift from an aunt
bangles: claire's, peru and india
and oh look, i'm wearing my engagement ring today! (usually i don't, just the wedding ring.)


  1. simple and classic - my favorite! :)

  2. Ahaha! I love the face! Well, better that it's warmer than you expected than colder eh? Plus, you look super cute!
