I'm a very lucky girl this birthday! Joel surprised me with a little jacket shopping spree at Macy's this morning! After trying on a bunch of cozy winter coats, I decided on this baby. Can you believe I don't own one??! I know, I think I'm the only Minnesotan without a black peacoat in my wardrobe -- but not anymore! Yesterday, I drove in the crappy weather to MOA to return a pair of heels to ALDO and left with this adorable bag -- happy birthday to me! Best part is was on sale. I'm a freak for sales, but I also hate them, because I have the ability to justify every purchase. It always starts like this in my head, "It's only..." -- damn that phrase!

Next, I stopped into Michael Kors to window/wishlist shop for a watch. The craziest thing happened... the girl helping me asked if I have a blog. My face went bright red and I laughed, "Yes." She was so sweet and told me she has it bookmarked! I laughed again and said how I'm surprised she even recognized me because I looked like a scrub with not a lick of makeup on and my glasses on. Again the sweetest girl ever, said I looked great. To say the least, she made my day! Actually, more like my month! Off to my b'day celebrations! My body is going to hate me tomorrow. My LP -- life partner, more commonly known as best friend -- has promised me 25 red-headed-sluts tonight in love/retaliation for the many nights at 1:30 I buy these for everyone.

p.s. I think I've fallen in love with a this baby! What do you think? Yay or nay??
p.s.s. A lesson learned: always wear makeup in public! haha

Wearing: jacket, Miss Sixty from Macy's; sequin top, J. Crew; boyfriend jeans, old (similar); heels, Sam Edelman c/o Lori's Shoes; bag, ALDO (similar); necklace, vintage; sunglasses, Forever 21
