11 in 2011: Places I hope to go this year.

I really haven't thought that much about this question for the upcoming year.
I do know that we are trying to plan a ski trip to Utah in Feb.
I hope that it all works out!
I would also like to go to Las Vegas with husband on his business trip this year.  Unbelievably I have never been.
My friend C. and I are hoping to go to Nashville for CMA fest in June!
 
We usually take a family vacation in the summer to a major city, but we haven't even talked about that yet.
If I just make it to the above 3 places this year I will be a happy camper.

Thanks to Teaching In Heels for hosting the 11 in 2011!

Yesterday I pulled out this cape.  I got it a while back at Ross for a really good deal because a few of the buttons were missing.  I finally changed the buttons out and it looks great...

   I paired it with a denim shirt and jeans.
Truth is I was running late this morning and just grabbed the first thing I saw in my closet.
So much for my paying more attention to what I am going to wear speech! 


I thought the cape would at least add a little interest to the outfit.


I threw a ruffled collar Henley on under the denim tuxedo shirt for some more interest and texture.


Not my favorite outfit ever, but I think it works.  
Will try and get more creative the next time I wear the cape.

white ruffled henley-Land's End
denim tuxedo shirt-GAP
cape-Ross
jeans-Old Navy
boots-Nine West via Nine West Store
watch-Fossil
earrings-Handpicked

I just realized in studying this outfit that my husband has abandoned his chambray tuxedo shirt...

the sweater/cape looks wonderful!

I like yourboots.

Vegas is on my list for 2011 too. I've only been once, but I love it.

My hubs and I got married in Vegas a year or so ago!

It's a great place to girl-trip as well.

My daughter and I are thinking about Florida in March. Whooo hoo! I've never been there.

First of all, cape=yes. Yes, yes, yes.

And ooooh, Vegas is fun, you'll have a good time if you get there! I've been there twice. And I've been to Utah, but never in the winter. It's really pretty. REALLY pretty. I'm hoping to make it back there this summer!

I hope you get everywhere you want to go! Travelling is so much fun.

I've never been to Vegas either! I always hear you need to go at least once, so hopefully eventually I will. In the meantime I can't wait to go to Puerto Rico for the first time later this month!! I just wish it required my passport to go - I've never had a stamp in my passport and I went to Mexico and Canada a few times when you could just still use your birth certificate!

Love the cape. And your story about taking pics from your comment on my blog was hilarious. You are way more brave than I am. WAY more.
