I’m sitting here watching the election returns on TV and feeling almost exactly like I did every time I gave birth. deep breath annnnnd puuuuush OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration but the anticipation is killing me. I didn’t have any ultrasounds, so no gender reveals until the birth day. But this jumping back and forth, is it Obama, is it Romney is causing me to have heart palpitations…
So let’s get to something less stressful and a whole lot more fun, clothes!
What I Wore Sunday
Sunday was a crazy busy day for us. The family and I went to our regular church and then the hubs and I went with our pastor and his wife to another service in Illinois. My goal was to be comfortable, cute and warm. I think I managed to hit all three. I also wanted to show off my new scarf. Really, how adorbs is that infinity scarf? If you’d like to crochet one for yourself, the pattern is right here.
What I Wore Monday
What is with my face in this picture? And do I look super awkward or what? Whatevs… I also made the scarf in this picture. It’s a longer version of the Infinity Scarf in the Sunday picture. Can you tell I loves my scarves? And those boots. OK, lemme tell you, those are probably the most expensive pair of shoes I own but they were worth every penny. They’re crazy comfortable and can go with anything.
Thank you to all the men and women who came before me and fought racism, sexism and pure hatred so that my voice can be heard. Every time I cast my ballot I think of you.
I’m trying to add more color to my wardrobe. I’m such a neutrals kinda girl. But I do love color. So funny how that works. Anyway, to kinda help me along I’ll be participating in the Colors of the Season: Fall Fashion Challenge that’s being hosted by Megan at Megan Mae Daily and Keely at Casual Chic Kiki. The one color I’ll probably have a hard time with is teal. I used to have a really cute teal cardi but one of my daughters (probably that college student) swiped it. Maybe I can hit up a thrift shop and see what I can find? Or maybe I can do something funky with my nails?
Do you have favorite fall colors? Is there a color combination you really want to try?
