Unexpected Owl

Today's challenge for The ABC's of Style is "U is for unexpected", and I unexpectedly found the time to participate! ;)

I've been trying to find a top to go with this skirt for a long time now, and decided to go out on a limb and try it with a graphic t-shirt.  I've seen girls pull this look off before (graphic T + skirt), but could I actually wear it and not look ridiculous?  Me?  Megan?  Well, it was time to find out...



It's winter (i.e. FREEZING), so here's the obligatory cardigan.

What I'm Wearing:
T-shirt: Thrifted  |  Cardigan:  Mossimo (thrifted)  |  Skirt:  Vintage (thrifted)  | Belt:  Chiang Mai, Thailand Walking Street  |  Tights:  Stein Mart  |  Shoes:  Blowfish Vance Booties

Well, there it is.  I'm still not sure if I'm pulling off this look right, but it was fun to try!  Besides...owls are always cute, right?  By the way, this skirt has POCKETS.  I can't believe I forgot to show them off when I took photos!  Trust me, they're there, and they're awesome.  Don't you just love skirts with pockets? <3 <3

Last night I dug out the ol' slow cooker and made Moroccan Chicken using a Better Homes and Gardens recipe I'd found on Pinterest.  Here's the finished product (excuse the crappy photo quality...I took it with my ancient phone):

It was absolutely delicious, so if you're looking for something simple and full of flavor, try it out! 

Ok, enough fun.  Back to memorizing drugs...I have a killer pharmacology test on Wednesday.  :(  Ugh, is it Friday yet?
