sweet emotion

I'm going to be completely honest, the only significant thing this outfit saw was me making some righteous mac and cheese.  However, it was a particularly trying week and, as stupid as it may sound, dressing up a little, putting on a pair of heels and twirling around has always made me feel better.  I did it all the time in college when I didn't want to write papers.

I think I was subconsciously channeling Steven Tyler here.  I've been watching American Idol and he is such a riot, not to mention Aerosmith was totally my first concert and one of my favorite bands.  Maybe deriving your outfit from a rock star is a good mood-lifter.  It certainly helped.  That and the fact that I know the week is over and can't happen again. 

The end of the week also means that I get to head on over to Lake Arrowhead to celebrate my roommate's birthday.  It's definitely a well timed mini-getaway.  So I hope you all have a great weekend and here's to a great week next week!

  1. very nice look...i wasn't sure how steven tyler would be on american idol, but he works, even if it seems like he hits on every girl that comes in.
