Aaaand it’s Monday again. How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good- on Saturday I participated in a photoshoot for a new online magazine called Stylish Sophisticate. After we wrapped up the shoot, I headed to a friend’s house to watch the Saints vs. Seahawks game. I don’t have a particular preference for either team, but my roomie is from New Orleans so I was rooting for the Saints a little bit.

Sunday was the ultimate lazy Sunday for me. I was extra tired for some reason so I spent a good chunk of the day in bed. I’ve been meaning to give audiobooks another try (I’ve never really been a fan but I wanted to try them again), so I started a new book- The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud. In the evening, I turned on the TV to catch the Golden Globes. Can Amy and Tina please host all award shows for the rest of time?

Tell me: Who else watched the Golden Globes on Sunday? What were your favorite looks?

Outfit Details: Cardigan and Necklace- Forever 21 // Dress c/o TJ Maxx (when I won a trip to go shopping with Keiko Lynn) // Shoes- Sam Edelman Petty (in Black Gladiator Leather) // Lips- Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Standout (obsessed with this color- might have to do a dedicated post about it!) // photos- my sister

    I imagine someone reading to me could be relaxing. I have recently gotten into podcasts and find some very entertaining!
    I unfortunately relaxed too hard today so now I’m playing catch up with no time for award shows, smoothies, and celeb envy. Maybe a post of your favs or link to a good compilation?

      And that hair!

      • Nnenna

        I have you to thank for that! :)

    I am so jealous of your sunny CA looks!
    The photoshoot sounds like so much fun, will we be hearing more about it?

    • Nnenna

      I wish I could go back to sunny CA right now! Although it hasn’t been too bad here weather-wise for the past few days. Yes, when the interview is published I’ll definitely share!

  • Jessica

    You look beautiful in these pictures. I love your navy tights. I didn’t watch the Golden Globes but I have been swooning at all of the gowns online this morning. Taylor Swift’s dress is among my favorites.

    • Nnenna

      Thanks so much! I thought Taylor Swift’s dress was pretty as well.

  • Jenmarie

    Oh, how exciting! Will you be sharing the photos from the photoshoot once they’re ready? I didn’t watch the GG but I will be looking at photos later today :)

    • Nnenna

      Yes, I’ll probably post a couple here once they’re ready! :)

  • ShenDove

    Cute dress lady! Hope you’ll share the photoshoot pics when they are available.

    • Nnenna

      Thank you Shenneth! I will! :)

  • Allie Mackin

    Oh how exciting a photo shoot. I totally thought Lupita Nyong’o knocked it out of the park, she created quite a stir. Though not as much as Amy Poehler apparently. I think Taylor Swift fans need to reign it in a wee bit and have sense of humor. LOL.

      Was there controversy between Amy and Taylor Swift? I haven’t heard about it- do share!

  • Angel Y.

    Lazy Sundays are the best! Loving your look as always!

    • Nnenna

      Thank you Angel! :)

  • Alex

    Pretty! I really love the pattern. I didn’t watch the Golden Globes– I was working on my app pretty much all night!

    • Nnenna

      Thank you! When is your app due for school?

  • Laura (bright and beautiful)

    Love how you styled this look!

    • Nnenna

      Thank you Laura :)
