GOOD, BAD, OK?

If we're talking about this week, then it would most definitely be good.
Very, very good!
In fact, I'm rather exhausted from this week, but it has been one of the most rewarding.

So, happy friday to you, you, and you!
By the way, you still have time to enter the massive 20 blog ad space giveaway...
get on that if you haven't yet! :)

I'm going to sound like a broken record for a minute to those of you who read this yesterday, but to all of you who are new here, I'd love it if you visited my updated About Me page (with my favorite blog posts I've written) to learn more about me. I love connecting with my readers, so speak up and say hi, pah-lease!

Tonight. I'm taking my husband out on a date.
He has been so wonderful and supportive this week, so I told him to pick the place (which he is really excited about) and I'm going to get all dolled up like a good wifey should. I figure it's the least I can do since 99.5% of the time lately I've been in sweats and a sweatshirt...good ole' winter for ya. Anyone else? 

Tomorrow. I'm tackling the rest of our Christmas shopping and then going to an ugly sweater Christmas party with friends. Just another excuse to wear my adult onesie in public! Woo-hoo!
{if you'd like, you can keep up with these events by following my instagram: @katiewkrysh}

I did recently re-create an outfit inspiration from Pinterest that I'm wearing today.
Polka dots, military vest, and booties.
How'd I do?

It's probably one of my favorite combos recently. 
Oh, and this nail polish I'm really crazy about too.
Essie's - Butler Please.

Since my Starbucks hasn't kicked in yet,
I have someone I'd love for you to meet.
And it's not just because I have the same exact vest she is wearing in the pictures below.
She has a genius gig over on her blog where you, the readers, can rate her outfits Good, Bad, or OK!
How fun is that?
Not only that, she is hilarious and I'm happy to call her a friend.

Take it away, Shan!

Hi Keep Calm Carry On readers! Am I 'peeing-my-pants' excited to be guest posting over here today? Mmmmyep! Turns out I am! Soooooo, the gig over at G.B.O. Fashion is to rate outfits as either Good, Bad, or Ok (super complex right?). It stems from the days of my youth, when my three brutally honest sisters and I needed a fast and easy way to rate how each other looked before heading out. And that's when GBO was birthed, like a regular newborn straight out the womb. (ewww - that was weird. sorry.)

Now I subject my outfits to the brutality of the entire world wide web so that peeps can be inspired by the G's and learn how to avoid the B's!

And I figured, why not give it a whirl right here right now?



G.B.O.?

Vest: F.21 (on sale for $15!) | Sweater: F. 21 | Skinnies: Ross | Pumps: H&M | Bag: F.21 | Bracelet & Ring: F.21






Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand sometimes this happens.

I may or may not like to include Blooper pics at the end of most posts... cuz these are just too good to keep to myself.

And by 'good' I mean terrifying.

Thanks again for having me Ms. Katie!
