Ramble + Goodies

I've been sick these last few days (today is one of my better days so far) and although I have not left the house once, I did continue to blog from the comfort of my bed. I haven't attended any classes for 3 days or even left the house since! I've just been stuck with the sniffles and sneezes, and this also means I've been vegging in my PJ's! I know what some of you are thinking ... "and that's a problem because?" Ahaha! I'm not complaining, I quite enjoy lounging around the house in my PJ's! Anywhoo. The door bell rings. Uh-oh. Here I am standing in my light blue and pink polka-dotted Maxi with a green Aeropostale hoodie, hair tied up in a high pony (how's that for an outfit of the day? ahha), droopy eyes and all, and I have to answer the door? (No one was home). & so I did and it was the UPS guy (is it just me or are they always grumpy?). Thank god he didn't see me because he was already at the neighbors front door. One thing I hate though, is when they leave the packages out in the open, I mean they don't take signatures for the packages when they arrive. What if someone were to take them!?!? I opened the door, looked around quickly to see if anyone was watching (me in my sad state) picked up the packages and darted back inside the house. Phewwww! That was quite a mission. Guess what came?! My Aldo goodies! I was in need of a new black handbag I have no idea what happened to the ones I had. The best part had to be the shipping, it came much earlier then expected. I purchased the items online on the 16th (Sunday) and recieved them as soon as today, since I had anticipated them to be in next week! I was super excited to get these in, they just added a little sparkle to my day.


I love this bag! I did, however, anticipate that it would be much bigger in person since it looks quite small, but I'll live. It is sturdy and I love the shape and style. I am a little ticked off that the shoulder belt was broken. I don't think i'd wear it with the shoulder belt anyway but still, you expect to get a complete product when you spend money. Other than that I love it! The bag is quite simple, nothing immensely fancy but it's just perfect. I was thinking of wearing both of these pieces together possibly.

These shoes were an impluse buy. I really only needed the bag but I couldn't resist these intricate flats! These are either a hit or miss. Hate it or love it. Some of y'all will hate them and others will love them. I am a huge flats girl, I love the comfort and simplicity of flats compared to heels. When I saw these it was like instant love and I knew I had to have them! They are the perfect simple flat with hint of edge to them. I love the buckle detailing and the zippered back. I've tried them on already and they are quite comfortable to say the least. They are definately NOT appropriate for the weather right now but I will save them for spring and summer! I can't wait to wear them out.
