Drinking The Crewlade



02.04.17 Outfit of the Day!!!

I have not posted an OOTD lately.  During the week I get up at either 4 or 4:30 to get ready for work, so dressing up and putting on makeup is not high on my priority list that early in the morning.  If I do dress up, I usually wait to put makeup on later in the morning at work. 

Then I get busy and forget to take a pic of my cute outfit.  Ugh….

So, anywho here is my OOTD!

Old Navy cardi, t-shirt and jeans, Bass boots (it’s pissing rain today in Olympia, WA), and JCrew Lucite Necklace.  The necklace was a Christmas gift from my sister in law.  I love it! It has a grosgrain ribbon closure.  It’s fabulous!!!

I hope all of you have a great weekend.  I am running errands today.  My guy and I are going  out for lunch, take a look at some treadmills (we are in the market as our old treadmill finally died), head off to Lowes to look at items we are considering doing for our yearly home improvement projects.  It’s going to be a fun day!!

Until next time!!!




Flashback Friday!!

Long time no write!  Hehe….


Today’s JCrew flashback is from October 2009.  This outfit is subtle, yet stunning.  I love the subtlety of the blush pink cardi.

The jewelry is in a class all by itself!  I adore the crystals paired with a grosgrain ribbon!


Until next time….



January 21, 2017 Women’s March:  A Letter of Thanks

Dear Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Susan Brownmiller and Robin Morgan:

Along with my parents, you are my heroes.   You, along with my parents, are why my life is so great today.

You helped moved the masses to lessen the gap of gender inequality and fought for our body equality to keep Roe v. Wade intact at the federal level.

I was born in 1971.  I was almost 18 months old when Roe v. Wade was decided in January 1973.  I admit I have been in a cloud all my life thinking Roe v. Wade will be forever intact and will never be threatened.  This election really woke me up. This new administration is hell bent on moving women’s rights back 44 years.  I cannot sit back silently anymore taking our right to reproductive freedom for granted.

I will not let the young women and little girls of today think they cannot have the same child free life I had the freedom of having.

I am at this Women’s March because of you.  I am here to salute you and all you have done for millions of women in this country.  I am also here at this Women’s March for you.  I am here to help continue what you started.  Our work is not done.

I have lived my child free life unapologetically solely because of you.  You helped give me the right to be a unique individual with a specific set of hopes and dreams and live them out without guilt or judgement.  I would not have been able to have this type of life without you and I will be forever in your debt.

With all my love and gratitude,
Cricket C.

Happy New Year!!!!

Delaney and I wish you all a very Happy New Year!  We hope your goals and dreams come true in 2017!

I have several projects and goals I will be working on in 2017.  One is working on getting this blog all prettied up and functional for potential retail use.  My second project is top secret, but I’ve had this project in my head for years and a long time friend has pointed me in the right direction to start working on it.  Yay…..

So my outfit today consists of:

JCrew Wool Teddie Sweater and  teardrop necklace

Old navy denim shirt, gold brocade pixie pants and smoking flats

If these pants don’t scream New Years, I don’t know what does!

Today is also my 12 year anniversary with my boyfriend.  We will be headed to our favorite local restaurant for dinner tonight.  

Thank you for your support this year!  Have a great New Years Eve everyone! See you in 2017!



Flashback Friday and I’m Drinking the Crewlade yet again!!

It’s Flashback Friday! I love this JCrew Factory outfit from 2013!!!

I just wish I was that skinny!!! One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to get in better shape.

I’m Drinking the Crewlade yet again! JCrew Factory is offering 40% off all clearance using code SHOPCREW.

I love this type of pullover. It’s very versatile. Neon Azalea is a color JCrew offers in many items every single year. It is a gorgeous shade of pink!
