Lar: The Mean Reds

sunnies from UO, scarf from H&M, dress from Rockit in Decatur, shoes are Tarjay

I don't at all look like I have the Mean Reds here in these picks. I grumbled my way through the work day and then delighted in the fact that Cath and I were going rug shopping at Ikea. (Rug shopping is a lot like shopping for pants to me: not much variety, but a necessary part of your apartments wardrobe- and if you cheap out, you can usually tell).

Apparently my Tiffany's cure for the "mean reds" equivalent is a trip to Ikea and a smooch from the bf. More satisfying than diamonds or a sterling silver telephone dialer for sure!

p.s. We hope to see some of you guys at The Clermont Lounge tonight!

One of my favorite things about humans is how we can power through things like the Mean Reds. At my house, we call them the FOIDS: Fear of Impending Doom. We just get them sometimes, and somehow we keep going.

That scarf is fab, fab, FABulous.

I won't be at the Clairmont (but someday when you have lots of time get Bill to tell you his Clairmont Lounge story) but I have always thought that the best antidote to the mean reds was to wear red.

Oh I love that fringe-y scarf, looks perfect on you!

Going to Ikea is therapeutic for me:)

sigh...every time i see you ladies and the shoes on your feet i just get excited about being done with school and having a job and finding something very appropriate to "splurge" on!

I LOVE that scarf. Red is such a pretty color. I used to not like it very much but it is sure growing on me.

Oh, I really like the bright scarf against the black! In the second picture it actually looks like it's part of the top! And rug shopping is the worse - my guy and I tried it last week and I had forgotten how seriously expensive they can be. Ugh.

Hey Lauren! Haha to the 'mean reds.' Love that scarf and your hair styled that way! You look fab. Hope you all have fun tonight!

Did you ladies find a rug at Ikea? Mel and I are moving next weekend to a new place and def. need to get some floor rugs. A trip to Ikea will def. be in our near future.
