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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

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,
 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
They have a nice variety and they ship fast as well.

This eyewear was provided by,
 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
