Stripes + Plaid

Happy Monday all!
I cannot take credit for my outfit today.
I confess that I simply stole this look from someone else!
Have you ever been scrolling through blogs
 and come across and outfit you just knew you had to re-create?  
That's what happened to me when I found this look on the
I love the mix of stripes and plaid along
 with the mix of black and brown.
  So fall, so fun and so comfortable
 all at the same time.
You know I am not a fan of "leggings as pants",
 but that is not what is happening here. 
 My top is a tunic and covers my bum,
 so there is no "leggings as pants"
 horror going on here.  

A big thanks to Jacqueline for such a great look!!!

Are you careful about how you wear your leggings?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Hello all you cool cats out there!
I hope you are having some lovely sweater weather and have a fun weekend planned.
Awkward:
  • The teeny tiny little old lady trying to maneuver here 1980's circa Lincoln Town Car around the parking lot.
  • When my neighbor across the street decided it would be a good idea to run his giant cement saw at 7:30 in the morning to cut up his driveway.
  • Not just butt dialing someone; butt FaceTiming someone.
  • When someone remembers you, but you don't remember them.
  • Son1 and I trying to move a couch.  Just think the infamous Friends episode...pivot, pivot, pivot.
 
 Awesome:
  • Speaking of Friends- did you know that on New Year's Day it will be available on Netflix!
  • When you didn't factor in really bad traffic, but you made it on time anyway.
  • Remembering a password you haven't used in a very long time.
  • Not only is my cute little lemon tree still alive, but the lemons are beginning to turn from green to yellow.
  • Son2 turns 21 on Saturday!!!  Let the celebration begin.
 
I have been loving getting out the scarves
 and pairing them with lightweight sweaters. 
 This is just a very easy, casual look
 with interest created with pattern and texture.
  I added pops of pink just to throw in a little color.

Let's hear about any awkward or awesome moments you had this week
 in the comment section.

Eyewear

My post today somehow disappeared around 2:00 pm.
I am not sure what happened or where out in cyberspace it actually went.
I was talking about eyewear.
Wearing glasses doesn't mean you have to look
 frumpy or past your age.
These cute glasses are from Readers.com,
 you can find them here.
They also have a great selection on sunnies as well. 
 I really like the fact that I can actually see
 while wearing sunglasses.
  These can be found here.
Whatever your eyewear needs are,
 I am sure you can find what you are looking for at Readers.com.
They have a nice variety and they ship fast as well.

This eyewear was provided by Readers.com,
 but all opinions are my own.

Red + Leopard

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.
Let's start this week off with a postive attitude!
One of my favorite combinations is the color red and leopard. 
 I don't wear much red,
 but this combination is just
 so classic how can you not wear it.
It got cool here this weekend so I threw on some tights. 
 I wish they would have been a bit darker for this look,
 but I just grabbed the first pair I thought would work.
I kept the jewelry pretty simple,
 just opting for stacking necklaces as my main focal point. 
 And of course I have to mention the lovely, 
rainy day hair!! 
 Mine gets bigger as the rain gets heavier.

Are you a red and leopard fan?
What are some other favorite colors you like to pair with leopard?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

It's a beautiful Fall Friday around here.
I think Fall is probably my favorite season, so I will be soaking it up as much as possible!
Awkward:
  • When you and your friend's 7 mile hike turns into a 9 mile hike because you got lost.
  • Being totally prepared and on the ball planning a crockpot meal and then about 5:00, realizing I turned on the crockpot, but never plugged it in!
  • Passing by a house in your neighborhood and you are convinced they are shooting an episode of Hoarders there.  
  • Your friend busts you on cutting your own bangs because you have "bang trimmings" on your face.
  • A neighbor leaves a community water bowl out for dogs on walks, your dog takes a drink and then promptly pees in the bow.
 
Awesome:
  • Finding a beloved lipstick and lip gloss in a purse you haven't used for awhile.
  • Your friend making you not only the cutest box lunch you have ever seen, but one of the yummiest as well.
  • Discovering the perfect pair of gold metallic sneakers in my size for $16.
  • All the fun Halloween and Fall decorations going up in my neighborhood.
  • Switching out your sandals and flip flops for boots and booties.  Let boot season officially begin!
 My pants have a tiny pinstripe on them which
 I loved pairing with my camo shirt. 
 Great example of subtle pattern mixing. 
 I am also loving the camo paired with the Oxblood/Garnet, 
whatever the name of this color is this year.
  It is such a great color combo.

I would love to hear about some of your awkward or awesome moments in the comments.
