An English Afternoon

Sometimes Gracefully 5 Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully 1 Sometimes Gracefully 2 Sometimes Gracefully 4

Darrin and I spent yesterday afternoon downtown at Brit’s Pub watching our beloved team Arsenal tie with Liverpool for their third Premiere League match. We found ourselves a corner table, ordered a side of “chips” to share, and imagined that we were somewhere in downtown London for the 90+ minutes of the game. Minneapolis’s blustery and overcast weather sure enhanced our imaginations. And these oxfords I found at Nordstrom Rack seemed to fit into our pretend English scene quite nicely. I was feeling all inspired throughout the game to soften my Minnesotan Rs, order a cup of Earl Grey, and drop a few “Cheerio!”s randomly throughout the match. But I refrained (much to Darrin’s relief), and kept somewhat quiet. We were surrounded by a surprisingly large number of Liverpool fans anyways. Wouldn’t want to start a late-afternoon rumble. Who knew Minneapolis was a hotbed for Liverpool lovers?

You can shop this sweet Old Navy dress below! And I found a pair of oxfords that look exactly like my pair from Nordstrom Rack. And they cost less, which has got me feeling all kinds of why-did-I-impulsively-buy-these-sort-of-over-priced-oxfords regret.
