Casual Friday: Burgundy, Navy, Stripes

I actually wore this out last Saturday to run some errands around town, but TODAY is Friday and I hadn't posted it yet, so I figured why not. I had a combination of a terrible day and terrible night yesterday. I had to drive to West Palm Beach for a meeting yesterday. The meeting itself was interesting and I enjoyed being there, but driving home in rush-hour traffic sucked majorly. Combined, I was in the car for 4 hours of the day. Then, when I got home from work, I realized that my dog had eaten some Easter chocolates I stupidly left on my coffee table. I panicked for a while trying to remember how much I left out.. Basically she didn't eat THAT much compared to her weight, and it was milk chocolate, and the Internet and my vet said I should just watch her to make sure she didn't show signs of poisoning. So, I ended up staying up half the night making sure she was OK - she seems to be, so that's good. I've never felt so guilty... All I could keep thinking about was "if she dies it's my fault." At the very least, I learned a lesson to pick up after myself and not be careless with what I leave around my apartment. So, anyway, I'm about to have a day being extremely tired at work from getting no sleep last night - FUN. Hope everyone has a great weekend - my BF is coming into town so I'm excited to see him! P.S. - I'm standing so weird below. Please excuse my awkward feet.
