Congratulations!!! Send me your info and I'll forward it on to my contact at AHM.
It's December. Which means that either the floaters in my eyes are getting worse, or there are a few bloggers out there who have snow falling on their blogs. (Considering that I read blogs first thing in the morning, I really did take pause the first time I saw the snow...rubbed my eyes and everything!)
It's December 3rd and I already have my Christmas tree up - look:
OK, it's just a tiny tree. It's in my office, next to the chair with Paco's favorite pillow. Oh, and it's turquoise! With a lime green tree skirt - I figured it should match my new running shoes. Yes it's crazy, but I have to say, the color really makes my tiny ornaments show up much better than they do in an ordinary green tree. And it makes me smile. :) Now I just need to get the rest of the decorations up...
*******************Speaking of Paco and his pillow, he really, really loves it:
*******************Since I've been working part-time again, Fashion Friday is back with a vengeance! First up is a summery dress:
I took a page from Kristen's style and layered a long-sleeved t-shirt under it so I could wear it during the colder days of fall. With black tights and boots, I think it worked!
My photographer (Jeff) got all artsy on me - so here's the back of the dress:
Not too exciting. Can you tell it's fall? This is the time of year when I regret our oak trees - I swear, they lose their leaves for months. Everything always needs sweeping and/or raking.
Next up is my favorite fall blazer (do we still call them blazers?). I got this last year:
Corduroy blazer and brown pants from Talbots, shirt from Ann Taylor Loft, camisole from Kohl's, probably.
Part of the reason WHY I love the blazer so much...
I really like the brown top (also bought last year), but decided to add a little pop of color by layering a teal camisole under it:I love the little ruffle-y detail on the shirt!
Of course, Miss Matchy-Matchy then had to carry that teal onto the socks:
By the way, these Born shoes are incredibly comfortable! I don't mind standing for four or five hours at work when I'm wearing them...wish I had a similar pair in black.
I've had fun dressing in my work clothes again - after a couple months of only wearing shorts and t-shirts or running clothes, it's been nice to rediscover my old favorites. I LOVED the next outfit - as soon as I put it on, I felt great - sassy, tiny and invincible.
I wore this the day after the red blazer outfit, so it's not like I lost 10 pounds overnight...but I sure felt that way!
Talbots shirt and pants, Target sweater, and I don't know where that little midsection came from, but I'll take it!
Hope you enjoyed the resurgence of Fashion Friday! Have a great weekend!
