Awkward and Awesome Friday

It's Friday Ya'll!
Time for a little awkwardness and awesomeness.
Awkward:
  • Rude,obnoxious drivers.
  • The day you put too much product in your hair and there is nothing you can do about it, but pretend you are having an okay hair day.
  • Walking around no problem when all of a sudden you notice you are walking wonky.  Then realizing a heel has broken off a favorite pair of shoes.
  • Waiting and waiting to see what exciting new store is about to open next to Target.  The sign finally goes up...it's a mattress store.
  • Having high hopes for a drug store gel nail poish and it actually holds up worse than regular nail polish.
 
 Awesome:
  • The Target I frequent just put in an NYX section in their make-up aisle.
  • Getting to play stylist for a friend.
  • Finding out Gilmore Girls is coming to Netflix in October.
  • Random dude coming up to me and saying, "Great outfit, I love it"
  • IOS 8 update with absolutely no problems!
 
Pulling out the fall clothes from
 the back of my closet for this look.
  The colors just scream autumn
 and this outfit is so comfortable.
  Love wearing booties with dresses.

Would love to hear about your awkward or awesome moments in the comments.

Gingham + Floral

Happy Hump Day!
I am continuing transitioning into fall.
  Sometimes the temps cooperate and sometimes they don't.
I am transitioning with a little pattern mixing today. 
 I usually do florals and stripes,
 but thought using gingham instead would be fun.
\
I opted for sandals with this outfit,
 but could see shooties with it as well.
I am going to have to pair my gingham with floral more often!

What do you like to pair gingham with?

Transitioning Into Fall With J.Jill.

We have had a few cool days here in the Carolina's.
Those days sometimes leave you scrambling for what to wear.
J.Jill has some great options for this fall.
This Medallion Tiles Tunic is a great option. 
 It can be worn with pants, skirts or leggings.
The colors are beautiful and the fabric is soft and flowy 
and the tunic covers your bum. 
Another great option for fall is the Smooth Fit Denim Skirt
 I will be the first to admit that sometimes
 denim skirts can be ill fitting. 
 This one is not.
  It is styled more like a pencil skirt
 and the fabric is soft and movable. 
 Not stiff at all like some denim skirts tend to be.
I thought that both the J. Jill blouse and skirt would look great together as well.
  A perfect fall duo.
Make sure you pop over and check out the latest
 looks from J. Jill today.

These clothing items were provided for me,
 but all opinions are my own.

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Well Hello Friday!
Awkward:
  • Joe the dog stealing my mini Toblerone that husband always brings me when he flies.  Luckily, I got it away from him just as he had opened the package.
  • When the sales person helping you is speaking so loudly that you think your ears might begin to bleed.
  • Watching you dog bolt out the front door and take off down the street after the UPS truck.
  • Wondering why your nail polish remover isn't working and then noticing you picked up the bottle of hydrogen peroxide instead.  In my defense the bottles were right next to each and are shaped exactly the same.
  • Having to take almost every single thing out of my closet to make closet shelving repairs.
 
 Awesome:
  • My repaired closet!
  • Being able to wear closed toed shoes again.
  • The little cool snap we recently experienced.
  • The overturned garbage can in the street that interested the dog more than the UPS truck.  It has been a rough week for Joe the dog, but he is none worse for the wear.
  • Catching up with friends you haven't talked to in awhile.
Just a simple transition outfit. 
 A little color and texture to add interest
 and you are ready for the crazy early days of fall.

Any awkward or awesome moments you'd like to share this week?

It's A Camo Kind of Day

We finally got a bit of a cool snap here.
It was a welcome relief!
I have been going back and forth with this Old Navy camo shirt. 
 It was finally on sale and I decided to go for it.
I wasn't too creative in my choice of olive pants,
 but tried to give the outfit a bit of a wow factor
 with the shoes and accessories.
I honestly didn't think camo would stick around for very long,
 but I have been proven wrong. 
 It is everywhere this fall.

Have you jumped on the camo train yet?
