Check Yourself!

We headed up to the North Shore last night to play some bar trivia with our friends. I love doing bar trivia, but it's hard with school, so I pretty much always go when I am on spring break. We typically play in the Boston area, but one of our friends lives up in New Hampshire, so we tried to meet in the middle. (Although in the end, it didn't really end up being any closer for him than Boston.)

In my opinion, coming up with a team name is the hardest part of playing trivia. We seriously spend 15 to 20 minutes every time we play trying to think of a good name! Our name last night was Sloths' First Win, and we were hoping it would bring us some winning luck (it didn't :)). One of the other teams playing called themselves Oh My Effing Cod, which I found really funny for some reason (especially because we were in Gloucester).

So here's what I wore. I got this scarf recently, and I love the pattern, but it's a little rougher fabric than I would normally like around my neck, as I have really sensitive skin. I actually ended up taking the scarf off about halfway through dinner.

Shirt: Gap Outlet
Jeans: Express (Sarula, from 2003/2004)
Scarf: J.Crew

A couple months ago, I updated my casual sock wardrobe as I became more serious about running. I hit up the local outlets to pick up some cute, casual patterned socks. I went to J.Crew Outlet first, knowing that I'd had luck with socks there previously, but I thought the prices were just a bit much - almost $10 for a single pair of socks! By contrast, I was able to get a two-pack with complementary designs from Gap Outlet for about $7, so I stocked up there instead.

These are my socks and shoes from last night. I love these shoes - they are my go-to shoes when I need to be a bit more dressed up, but don't need to wear heels and shouldn't wear sneakers.
