How I Spent my Day Off

I hope everyone enjoyed their day off yesterday got the chance to relax or spend the day out and about like I did! Although the windchill yesterday was -14 my mom, younger brother & I ventured out to Easton, a large outdoor mall, to have lunch at Cheesecake Factory and check out vineyard vines Whale-of-a-Sale. Although it was freezing (I still can't feel my toes!) it was so much fun and definitely beats sitting at home all day!

I snapped this photo as I was getting ready! I LOVE having fresh flowers in my room and have also recently been loving listening to my current Spotify playlist as I get ready in the morning!

vineyard vines whale-of-a-sale was 50% off the already reduced prices and I couldn't resist trying on a few things in hopes of one of them fitting!

No shame mirror pic #ootd. I snagged this hunter green jacket at my local consignment store and absolutely LOVE how versatile it is! To see where everything else in my outfit is from be sure to check out my Instagram @northprepster!

This navy pullover with emerald green detailing was so cute but I did decide to pass on this piece because it's so similar to another shirt I own from vineyard vines.

If you're ever in the Columbus store be sure to check the dressing room walls for the picture of my sweet puppy Callie! & if you look a few photos up from Callie there's a picture of me holding a big whale!! Oh, this is the top I ended up purchasing! I've been wanting a good quality black & white check popover and as soon as I tried this one on I knew I needed it in my closet!

This striped top was so comfy and soft but the turtle neck just didn't quite work for me! (& I really don't need another striped shirt in my closet) I did love the gray & white together though!

After we made our purchases at vineyard vines we headed to Cheesecake Factory for lunch! Boy oh boy was it yummy! I had fresh grilled salmon with broccoli and mashed potatoes and it was delicious! And what's a trip to Cheesecake Factory without some cheesecake? My mom and I each ordered a piece to-go and were oh so content as we ate our cheesecake and watched the Bachelor!

Yet another picture of the flowers in my room & my J.Crew bags! I snagged a pair of pajama bottoms along with another pair of camp socks & the cutest pair of houndstooth socks. I can't wait to wear both pairs with my bean boots!

A very happy girl with her purchases!

Little miss Callie really likes my J.Crew purchases! :) 

How did you spend your day off?



  1. This looks like the PERFECT way to spend your day off! I'm so envious of it!

  2. Sounds like the perfect day off! I have the navy version of the top you got at Vineyard Vines and I love it! Bachelor and cheesecake sounds like the perfect way to end the day!
