Insta-lately + Hello Monday Linkup

Happy MLK Day!

Earlier this week I commented how much I was dreading another 5 day workweek after the long holiday, and my co-worker piped up cheerfully that we had a three day weekend.  I quickly pulled up the list of paid time off holidays, and realized it was MLK Day, and somehow January was already nearly 2/3 over, what?!  This was a very exciting revelation.

So, obviously I then texted my bestie in Chicago asking if she had plans for the weekend, and if I was welcome to visit.  Within the hour, my train ticket was purchased, and I was all set to spend the weekend with her.  

I'm actually typing this from her cozy downtown apartment, but tomorrow when you read this, I'll most likely be riding the train binge-listening to the podcast 'Undisclosed'.  If you listened to and loved the first season of Serial, you HAVE to listen to this podcast (except maybe episode 9, 10, and 12).  If you didn't listen to the first season of Serial, start there ;)  (Speaking of which, is anyone else a little disenchanted with season 2?? because it's kind of breaking my heart.)

Anyhow, I thought it would be good timing to share a roundup of insta favorites, because I haven't lately, and it's been really, really cold, so I don't have many outfit photos ready to go.  As usual, I'll just link the available items, or note if something is similar.

And since it's Monday that means Linkup Day! (yes, totally a proper noun)

Also, yes, I love the idea of Serial Season 2 so far, but I find my mind wandering a lot more than it did during season 1. I'm only a couple of episodes in though, I hope it picks up!
