Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah it was in the 80’s yesterday. The temps even dropped down into the 70’s during the evening hours and my boiling Arizona blood was a tad bit chilly. It was such a joyous occasion I got the chance to whip out another score from Brooklyn Industries; this amazing oversize houndstooth printed wool sweater. I can’t even stand how it amazingly matches these blue mirrored sunglasses I got earlier this year. Just kidding, I can stand it.
I really had you guys going there for a minute – huh? I really tricked you. Okay-okay if you are forcing me, I kind of LOVE matchy-matching.

When I was in grade school I was also a real creep about matching. I had this every other type rule. It would go like this for example; white Keds, pink socks, white jeans, pink top, white headband. Oh-my-god and if there was a belt in the mix, well that threw everything off. Luckily that isn’t the case these days, my OCD issues have moved on to bigger and better things. Like, the order in which one must clean a home. Let me just tell you, dusting is the last step okay. OKAY! ;)

Until next time.
Love, Amanda

P.S. Above knuckle rings for the win! FTW I say!

    Ahhhhhahah that is hilarious because the order of cleaning in my house goes dusting first and then sweeping and mopping last. We have really hairy dogs and being in Arizona, we have lots and lots of dust. So, after we dust off the counters (and all that junk falls to the ground) we then sweep and mop. :) I love the hounds tooth sweater, by the way. It looks perfect with those sunnies.
