Lots of stuff on my mind today. Firstly, I'd like to say hi! to all my new followers. I'm so glad that you've found your way to my blog, and I'd love to get to know more about you! Let's link up on Twitter or on Facebook and keep the conversation going. Secondly, thank you very much for all your suggestions for scars, acne, and blemishes. There are so many new products that I am eager to try now! On to the outfit!

I wore this very casual ensemble to meet up with a former colleague of mine for lunch. Since I knew we were going out for Chinese food, I wore a forgiving but still very stylish top to cover the anticipated food baby. I love this tank that I got maybe 4-5 years ago from Romeo and Juliet Couture. It covers me up pretty well, but also has that extra layer to make the piece more interesting. I paired it with skinnies, so I could move around easily. All in all, this was a pretty laid back and practical look.

We played boardgames for 7 hours straight. I never knew boardgames could be so much fun!!! My friend brought a game called Marvel Heroes that took HOURS to play, and when I realized there was no winning this game, I demanded we change the game.

We then proceeded to play Ingenious, which is so addictive! I wasn't even aware that we were playing for so long because I wanted to win so bad.



Do you like boardgames? Which ones are your favorite?

  1. Ohh I love boardgames.. but I never get much past Monopoly ( sadly we have four different versions).
    Also, love the Panda! So cute and just a bit different as well.

  2. Totally love boardgames. Every year when we visit our family friends in NJ, we play Pictionary (which is great because all 9+ of us mushed together have the art talent of a small child) Scattergories is another favorite. Oh and Pokemon Monopoly (or rather it would be if my brother hadn't chewed the faces off all the playing pieces when he was little...)

    I always say I'm not a big fan of boardgames, but once I start playing, I am hooked!

  10. I love your bracelet, it's so pretty! Your evening of boardgames sounds fun, I played a great game called 'Articulate' at a friends a while back, you have to describe something (a country, a famous person etc) without actually saying the word, it can get really funny! x

  27. Board games are my favorite. :) I mean, I play video games occasionally, too, but nothing can compete with an old-school game of Yahtzee or Monopoly (the game that never ends).

  31. OMG Laura! I love boardgames, as a kid my cousins and I would stay up till 2am playing monopoly! We played until someone went bankrupt and you know how LONG that takes! I think you can easily find a sequins tank anywhere, try target, express, limited, and you can find one for usually under $30! I think you could totally try this look and it'd look fab on you!

  32. Cute outfit!!

    I love board games!!

  33. Did you win though??? Also, I really love that color blue on you. It's a really cute tank. I can never find interesting tanks. Only boring ones for me. (sad music)

  34. Laura, you look great in BLUE!!! That is definitely your color. Adore the cuffed jeans and that bracelet is gorgeous. I'm a Monopoly fan! But I always end up going to jail... straight to jail... don't pass GO... do not collect $200! HAHAHAHA Love to build on Broadway and Park Place!

  36. I'm so jealous of all the board games you've been playing! I wish I could just hope on over to join :D It just seems like so much fun, specially if you're with a small group of really fun friends.

    I love your laid back look Laura! Super simple and yes...it will cover up the food baby very very well. I think I have a top that does the same, I should wear it when we hit buffets of all sorts :D I like that you folded your skinnies as well, I was always wary of folding mine that way, you pulled it off super well! :)

  37. //Thank you, now I just have to find it. Lost it the same day.... Hahaha, great minds think alike ;) So cute :)

  38. My husband and I love boardgames so much that we started collecting them. Some of my favourites: Small world, acquire, I'm the boss, carcassonne. Haha so many to name! Try card games too! Saboteur, Bang and dominion are really awesome games. Yes and they are addictive!

  43. You look really good in this shade of blue. I don't think one can go wrong with a flowy top and skinnies. Which reminds me, I don't know where my skinny jeans are. Hmm.

    Boardgames! I've never played either of these, but that's not to say I wouldn't try if given the chance. My all-time favorite is Scrabble, but I also enjoy Scattergories, Cranium and Clue among others.

  44. Any of the Catan or Fluxx series are possibly my favorite games to play at home at the convention I attend.

  48. I really like that top, and bonus points for it being forgiving. I am definitely a board game addict. I love Monopoly (even though I don't think I've ever completely finished a game...so loooong), Settlers, Carcasonne, and Cranium. I also like those card games that are sort of like board games...Bang, Bohnanza, etc.
