Awkward and Awesome Friday

Happy Halloween!
I hope it is spooktacularly awesome.
  • The mystery stain that showed up on the carpet and walls that no one will admit to. 
  • Realizing you never put mascara on at the end of the day when you are washing your face.
  • When the person that uses the last of the toilet paper doesn't replace the roll.
  • Forgetting about all the acorns that have fallen and going outside barefoot.  Those little suckers hurt when you step on them.
  • When a dude flags you down to tell you that your gas cap is off and the little door to the gas tank is open.
  • Walking in the Out of the Darkness Walk to help raise awareness of depression and suicide.
  • Watching son1 drum during a drumStrong event.
  • When you are driving down the road and leaves of gold, red and orange start falling like a snow storm.
  • Husband bringing home flowers.
  • Halloween candy!  Anyone else pretty sure that will be in a candy coma by tomorrow morning?
 I am loving this neutral look for fall.
  Boots, a scarf, cords and a chunky sweater.
  Autumn dressing at it's best.

Have a great Halloween!

Their women's apparel collection is inspired by signature prints, vibrant colors and feminine shapes that celebrate a timeless sense of style.
 The great people at Foxcroft sent me this 
fabulous sweater jacket and amazing plaid shirt.

This blouse is a so fun and will be perfect
 to style for the upcoming holiday season.
  Wouldn't it look amazing with a sequin skirt?

 polka dots or leopard in the very near future.

Mixing Hard and Soft

We had a beautiful weekend here.
Lots of sunshine and crispness in the air.
I hope your weekend was just as fabulous!
There are versions of this outfit all over the internet lately.
  I love the mix of hard and soft, 
so I thought I'd give the look a try myself.
I am a big fan of black and pink and this shade of
 baby pink is a refreshing take on the look.
The hard lines and masculine feel of the jacket
 are a great juxtopostion to the 
soft lines and femininity of the skirt.
  The leopard scarf ties both of these together.

Do you like mixing soft and hard
do you prefer wearing one or the other?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Happy Friday!
Here's to an awesome weekend with very little awkwardness involved.
  • When things on your iPhone start disappearing and you don't know where they went.
  • Whipping up something in the kitchen you have made a million times before and it doesn't turn out right.
  • When the hostess at a restaurant tries to sit you with a group that are clearly NOT "your people".
  • Accidentally hitting your coffee mug on the counter and the handle completely breaks off.
  • Driving home with all of the windows down and hoping you make it before you puke in the car.
  • Finding a new walking trail in the woods near your house.
  • Great mail days with packages piled at your door.
  • Husband bringing you home a fancy box of chocolates.
  • Late night grocery store run in your pajama pants and Uggs and you don't even care.
  • Ginger Ale and sleep when you have a stomach virus.
Going outside my box and wearing dark, neutral colors.
  I do love black and gray together and decided to give it a try. 
 I kept everything very simple for an easy going casual look.

I would love to hear about your awkward or awesome moments in the comments!
