Ain't No Party like an Engineer Party

This outfit is from last week sometime.  It has nothing to do with the next paragraph, but I was excited to wear my floral shoes again!

Last night, I went with John to an engineering awards banquet.  I wore my floral dress, but managed to take zero pictures.  It was actually pretty fun, as far as engineering awards banquets go.  The keynote speaker was much livelier than previous engineering keynote speakers I have heard.  I met the former mayor, who complimented my smile, and then proceeded to be very politiciany.  And I couldn't remember if he was still the mayor, so I didn't really know what to say to him.  Part of the evening was a backstage tour of the fancy baseball stadium downtown, during which I embarrassed myself by choking on a sip of Pepsi when everyone was quietly looking around the locker room.  You can't take me anywhere.  The tour was pretty cool, but I should have worn more comfortable shoes for all the walking and stair-climbing.

Anyway, it's been a busy week and next week is even worse!  I have something going on every evening next week, so I need to have a productive weekend to get ahead of the game.  And then I need to stop committing to weeknight activities all the time!

Do you have any fun weekend plans?  Remember to get a nautical-inspired outfit ready to link up with Laura and me!

Top, Cardigan, Jeans: Gap (actually all 3 are from Gap Factory!)
Shoes: J.Crew Factory


  1. I'm excited for the nautical link-up next week! I wore the perfect outfit earlier this week...I just have to get some photos of it this weekend :)

  2. Cute look, I like the purple and navy combo! I've had a crazy busy week too, and with mother's day plans on Saturday AND Sunday, I don't see a rest in my future!

  3. I agree with Inge, that the purple/pink and navy look great together! And they work so well with your fun floral flats! :) Sounds like you and John had a great night out!!

  4. I love those flats! And I agree with pretty much everyone here, the navy and purple look really nice together!

  5. glad you had a great time are the award banquet

  6. If it makes you feel any better, I got distracted by the window display at the Lego store while walking down some stairs, and apparently there was a wet spot, because I went flying down them. I managed to catch myself somehow and didn't fall to the ground, but still had some people ask me if I was okay. Anyway. Hooray for your floral flats! I hope to see them again soon!
