Hey Friends!!! I feel like yesterday's laundry room tour was kind of sad :) hahaha
I blame myself for not announcing it sooner, so consider this your warning to get ready to LINK UP in December for Christmas decorations!!!
The weather has been NUTS here lately! Literally 76 one day and 40 the next. Last night we had a freeze and this week the high is like 42 degrees. For me, the key to our crazy weather is LAYERS and lots of them!
My Manda Strong tee came in last week and I wore it the next day to Luke's Jog-A-Thon with a mustard cardi from Target and a big chunky scarf.
PSA!!! My chunky scarves are from last year, but THESE scarves that I talked about last week are only $8 at Old Navy right now!!!
We didn't go anywhere on Sunday when everyone else was wearing their shirts, so I wore mine again to school on Monday.
I paired it with some Finn pants by Matilda Jane, the best denim jacket EVER and a whole bunch of bangles from Hippie Chick.
A am a total bracelet-a-holic!!! Also, I just discovered Bogata Blackberry by OPI (which apparently is a really popular shade - why did no one tell me about it?!?!?! hahaha) and I'm LOVING it for Fall.
Saturday, Mason and I had a "date" to the grocery store and I threw on this button down, a GAP puffer and some distressed jeans (with my go-to studs (which are on sale!!) and sequin TOMS, because duh!)
Yesterday was when it turned SUPER cold, so I layered A LOT! This blanket scarf from Tara Lynns kept me warm all day along with my mustard cords, chambray shirt and this puffer vest.
So..... my last outfit is kind of "iffy" for me. I'm not sure I'm 100% sold.... yet. I've been eyeing several faux fur vests over the past couple of weeks, just waiting to find the perfect option and take the plunge. (This option from Target was high on my list). I was going through my closet last night looking for a jacket when I remembered that I actually OWNED a fur vest already! Back in High School and college I worked with the NICEST woman named Kay at a store downtown McKinney. She and I worked together for several years and I loved her dearly. We were a funny pair since she was old enough to be my grandmother :) She grew up in Dallas (like Dallas Dallas.... not McKinney Dallas... hahaha) in a super well off family and one day she showed up at the store with a mink jacket that her dad bought her for her sweet sixteen. Her name is actually embroidered on the inside - so neat! Anyway, she gave it to me because apparently she thought I needed a handmade mink coat and it has hung in my closet for YEARS. The sleeves zipped off of it and I wore it as a vest yesterday. Thoughts???
I'm definitely not a proponent of purchasing fur.... but this one was a gift. And it's vintage. And I'm leaning toward it being kind of fabulous. Maybe???
We can all pretend it's faux, k??? :)
Her spots are almost totally gone and she's feeling GREAT!
Like I mentioned in an earlier post, she really only had a low low low grade fever last Wednesday evening (thank goodness she was only contagious for that teeny amount of time!) - and I am so grateful we lucked out with such a mild case.
Last (promise!) thing... this morning is THE LAST chance to get a free Matilda Jane blanket when you send in a wishlist for $175. If you're wanting to place an order, I've come up with some fun mix and match ideas for orders that would make versatile little wardrobes and qualify you for the blanket! I didn't have time to link to everything individually, but feel free to email me with questions!
The cream layering pieces are sooooooooo versatile! Under both of these dresses will carry them all the way to Spring!
Happy Wednesday, friends!!! Be sure to check back in tomorrow - I have something SUPER FESTIVE up my sleeve for y'all!!!
