Bows, Bows, Bows

When I think of yellow and black together, I think of a bumblebee and not in a good way.  Yet, I always gravitate between pairing the two colors together and it isn't until I've been in the outfit for a whole workday that I think, "man, I look like a bumblebee."  Maybe I'll remember to pair yellow with something different and that's a big maybe seen as though these days I've been shampooing my hair three times in a row because I forget whether or not I've washed it or not.  Oy vey...

Holiday Kilt

 First, I want to thank you ladies for the extremely kind and sweet comments!  I am forever in awe of how amazing you are and for your kindness that I wish I could thank you in person.

Second, I wore this to my mom's holiday party.  My mom posted a picture of the two of us online and, instantly, I received a text from my sister asking "ummm, why are you wearing a kilt?"  Sisters...they bring you back down to earth ;-)

Playing it Safe

Nothing too interesting going on with this except that it was comfortable but that's not too interesting either.  Have I stressed enough that I prefer comfortable over anything?  In fact, as soon as I get to my office in the morning, I immediately remove my watch and bracelets.  Some may ask what the point of even wearing them in the first place may be.  Habit, I guess.  I just prefer to be the most comfortable as I can be if I have to be at work all day.  I'm being honest here people...I'll show the good and not so great :-)

Foggy Grays

Although I like how snuggly (isn't that a great way to describe an outfit?) this outfit was, I think I'll skip the boots next time.  I don't own a pair of gray shoes (oh how this will change soon) so I didn't know what to pair this with.  Anyone have any suggestions for shoes to wear with a gray palette?

Vote Walk

It's Election Day and although I will not preach, judge, etc about the elections, I do encourage those of you who can vote to do so.  How cute is this video about the little girl tired of "Bronco Bama" and Mitt Romney?!

Glitzy Bows

Bows, pink, and polka dots...girly girl through and through.  However, I haven't always been a girly girl.  My mom says that when I was a little girl, she could take me to the gas station and I could always find something I wanted to buy.  When I got to middle school, I was such a tomboy just the kind of tomboy that didn't like to play sports.  I was a lazy tomboy that just wanted to wear t-shirts, jeans, and could care less about personal appearances.  It made for interesting photos that I wish my mom would burn but instead she likes to post on facebook to taunt me, I'm sure.

Hocus Pocus

Halloween apparently came early this year!  Not gonna lie but the sun is doing all sorts of weirdness to my hair, eyes, and face in these pictures.  The brightness made my eyes look glassy and hair red but it didn't make my legs red; those are tights, silly.  I have to poke fun at myself because if I don't who will....oh, my husband who said I look like an avatar because my hair is covering my neck will.

Okay enough self deprecation, anyone recognize the title of my post?  If not, shame on you!  Hocus Pocus is one of the greatest films of all times.  Well, top halloween film for me.  Last year, I bought the DVD along with Teen Witch and The Worst know, other great films.  I'll be the cool girl watching these movies on halloween.  I'm super cool you see :-)

Sweet Everythings

I'm going to be sweet and sappy today...doesn't happen often.  Here goes.  My husband and I have been married for two years but together 12 1/2 years.  We, also, work at the same law firm.  Because we have been together for so long and spend a lot of time together, it takes a lot to surprise one another.  Last week, my husband came along to one of my hearings that was out of town.  The hearing took the whole day and I was exhausted.  On the drive back home, he says to me that he didn't know what kind of mood I would be in and then he hands me his Iphone.  Confused, I turn his screen on and see a shopbop invoice for this lovely Rebecca Minkoff bag!

I've been drooling over this bag for so long and seeing it on the oh so stylish Noelle of Beautygirl24 in this gray color solidified that I really wanted this bag.  I over think every purchase I make but my husband is impulsive.  This time, it worked in my favor because I am so in love with this bag!  It's the perfect size, color, and so versatile (straps are changeable).  What I love most about it, is that my husband bought it for me and after all this time together, he can still surprise me :-)

Greener Side

I am such a happy girl.  Not only do I have a couple big cases behind me, there's only one more day left before the weekend.  I don't talk about work much but, most times, I let cases take over me so when they wrap up, I look forward to little things like laying around in my pjs having nothing to do.  I'm definitely working on not letting things get to me and trying to get my mind off of work when I get home.  So in honor of my strive to let things go, I have a nice pair of pjs and cozy socks waiting for me when I get home today :-)

Today I'm linking up with Pretty Shiny Sparkly for the Bloggers Do It Better Challenge - oxblood. Confession, I've never used the word 'oxblood' to describe this color.  I usually call it red or burgundy.  I'm a total guy when it comes to color names.

I'm also guest posting over on Schnelle today!  Come check it out and say hi!  It's a Pinterest inspired post :-)

Fallen Leaves

The leaves have fallen!  I love how pretty nature is this time of year.  This past weekend, I picked up a bunch of pine cones and next weekend I plan on using them for a diy project I found on Pinterest.  Gotta love the weekends!  I finally got my hands on the Stella & Dot renegade bracelet, many many many thanks to Jamey and Jack's Mom!

Dotty Greens

It's an illness, an obsession, a sickness really on how much I love polka dots.  I won't mention it ever again because I'm being obnoxious but I really love them.

Pastel Fall

I've been seeing everywhere that burgundy is the "it" fall color this year; however, I've never followed color rules when it comes to seasons.  Although, I do feel more fall-ish wearing bolder colors, I just wear what I like and if it happens to be pastels - it just happens to be pastels that day.  Anyone else follow certain color combos for each season?

Polished Maxi

Lately, I've been posting more of my weekend outfits because, honestly, if I'm going to court a lot in one week, my outfits start looking all the same.   Keeping track of my outfits through this blog has really helped me see if I'm repetitive and how to reuse things already in my closet.  Before the blog, I was constantly stricken with the "I have nothing to wear" thought and that's when I would hit the stores.  Now, I see how I can use something in a different way without feeling like I already wore it.

I wear my clothes multiple times.  Period.  I wish I could show a brand new outfit every day but that just isn't my real life.  I do buy new clothes here and there but when I buy something I think in my head how many things can I wear this with.  If I can only come up with one outfit, it's not coming home with me.  That's just my two cents on my shopping philosophy.  I have many more but that's for another day :-)
