Love this bright green, ruffle collar sweater. The collar was so cute I stepped out of my black comfort zone and actually wore color in public. Can you just picture wearing it with a messy bun? So cute. My grey overcoat is an oldie, so I listed some other options for you. And FYI I walked London all day (20,000 steps) wearing these UGG wedges. So comfortable.
Hey! It’s Thursday. I’m writing a book where the main character’s name is Thursday. Be happy, the weekend is almost here! This weekend Josh and I celebrate two years of being together. He has something planned but he hasn’t told me what. Someone tell him that I hate surprises. By the way, the book I just read is probably one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s a hard thing for me to say that because of the subject matter. It’s not my favorite book of all time, but definitely one of the best I’ve ever read. Does that make sense? I hope you give it a shot but be prepared, it’s hard to read.
What I’m reading
Washington abounds in cute little towns. During the summer Josh and I try to take the kids to as many new places as possible. The goal when we get there is to eat. We are food people. Also both Ryder and I are mean as hell if we’re hungry. I’m not talking about general grouchiness either, Josh stuffs string cheese in his pockets before we leave the house. If we start being verbally abusive, we get a cheese. If we yell, we get a cheese. If we cry, we get a cheese. I like cheese so this works well for me. Anyway, after we arrive wherever we’re going we find the food. Then we walk around and see the local charm. We always find a bookstore. I make Scarlet and Ryder use their own allowance to buy toys, but I will always pay for books. Their little faces still light up at the idea of new books and I hope it always stays that way.
This was my weekender outfit.
I found three dupe bags that are almost identical to my Chanel cross-body! They’re under twenty dollars! I also listed the dupes to my red sunglasses. And though it looks like I’m wearing a skirt they are actually shorts. I love them. The feminine appeal of a skirt with the practicality of shorts. And they’re on SALE. So check them out.
What I’m Reading and Loving!
Hi guys, meet my new impulse buy. Wedges that are so comfortable. I’m in love and I don’t regret them for one minute. Kindergarten graduation today. I can’t believe my baby is going to first grade. I remember my last month of pregnancy with him, saying to myself, ‘This is never going to end. You’ll be pregnant forever.”
And here I am with a first grader.
Just throwing this up quickly because I was so excited about this! I founds tons of JC shoes discounted to half price. I left all the prices up so you can see! Hurry before they sell out. Merry Christmas to you!
Okay, the wedges are at least. They already were a great price and now they’re on sale too. So, go check them out. As for my lax blogging. It’s my camera’s fault…my friend’s fault…my…my…my…
I’ll do better.
I’ve had a hectic few weeks, and let me tell you, there’s this period of impossible fashion blogging in Washington state. Why? Because while the rest of the country is experiencing full fledged summer, here in the PNW we are still experiencing winterish spring? So, anything I post would be from last year’s winter wardrobe. So, excuse my slower posts, things will pick up when summer treats us all fairly. Also, I’m trying to just balance out right now. If that means less blogging and more writing-so be it. I’d like to share more blogging things with you too. Fashion and feelings are my forte, yes?
There have been some home projects we’ve had to work on like flooring, and deciding if we want to invest in the backyard, or if we are selling. I’ve had my eye on another house. We live in a development now. I have an amazing view of the Cascades, and I love my location since I am a few minutes away from the kid’s school, but I’ve been wanting something a little more private for a while now. Somewhere I can put dragons on my fence, and have a yard that neighbors can’t see into. I came to Washington for peace, and while I’ve mostly found it, I’ve discovered that in my line of work I need a certain sense of separation from people to maintain that peace. So, whilst I try to adjust to a new balance of work, and home, and decisions, I’ll be spreading out all of my extra curricular activities and depending on the week you may see more or less of them.
I always buy skirts to wear to church. Not dresses, skirts. Like there’s something more acceptable to the Lord about wearing separates on Sunday. It’s how I do. It probably stems back to my traumatic college experience of single hand holding with boys, sacred music, and pantyhose and pumps. Have I mentioned that I attended a really strict Christian college? We wore skirts. It was okay because I went to college in Florida and skirts are nice and breezy when it’s hot. That’s what I told myself as I sang hymns, and peeled pantyhose off my sweat soaked legs every night to make my 10:00 o’ clock mandatory bedtime. Anyway, I don’t have to wear hose anymore, and you couldn’t pay me to sing Come Thou Fount, but this week in Washington state it’s hot as hell and I’m back in skirts. I linked you below.
I’ve been looking for a green bag for a long time. People get really excited about this one when I wear it. The bad news is you can’t get it stateside. So, I found a kelly green hobo and linked that for you. Otherwise, my shoes are on sale! The really unique thing about these wedges are that they have a velcro strap at the ankle. They are comfortable and sturdy, and for someone like me who has wobbly ankles they’re a great thing.I’ve yet to fall down in them. Anyway, I know it’s Monday but I hope it’s a decent one. I’ve had to do some soul searching this weekend. Soul purging? Soul cleansing? It’s not purged, or cleansed, or found. My best friend did tell me I need to take up yoga, smoke lots of weed, or have a seance. Honestly, the last thing I’m willing to do is yoga. So…
