don’t waste your time trying to find a common thread,
and just enjoy! 🙂
I ran to Target on Tuesday to get drawer inserts and dish towels for the new house.
And I did get those things.
But I also walked out with several other things, including 2 things of Essie polish.
Because it’s Target.
And I had to have some fall polish.
(Oh, and I’ve received several questions about my ring because you see
me with two different rings on. In this picture I’m wearing my wedding
band, but I’m wearing it with the ring I got for our five year
anniversary. It’s supposed to be a right hand ring, but my engagement
ring is a smaller ring size, and when it’s hot outside my fingers swell
and the ring is too tight. Since we were going to the fun run at
Carter’s school, I knew I needed the ring that was bigger around, so
this baby got put on. I actually wear it a lot, even though it doesn’t
really match my band.)
When I was shopping awhile ago, I found THIS shirt, and then I forgot about it during the move.
It reminded me A LOT of the MUST HAVE SHIRT, but it had great color choices (loved this yellow, but also like the grey and the blue)….and it didn’t seem to wrinkle!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I loved it with my distressed jeans and my converse, but this top would also be perfect for ladies with office jobs. It would
be great with a pencil skirt or a pair of suit pants and a pair of heels!
I think this
yellow color would be pretty with black or grey!
Here are the other colors:

The leather wrap bracelet is sold out, but there is a similar one HERE (I have this one in cranberry from Miss TB and absolutely adore it).
My friend Jeni posted THIS blog post on her facebook wall this week.
It’s all about how a mama handled a kid being mean to her kid.
(You might have already seen it because it’s definitely been making the rounds.)
is some controversy in internet land about whether this mama handled
the situation correctly or not when she went up and said something to
the child when he was being mean to her kid.
I see both sides.
I needed to hear and what spoke to my heart was what she said to her
own son at the breakfast table the next morning. It’s a great read. And as a mama, it’s
something I know I will be going through, probably sooner rather than
I hope I remember the messages she instilled and can help my little guy the way she helped hers.
Anyway, click HERE for some good solid advice that this mama handed out at the breakfast table.
Let me first say that nobody is more surprised than me, but I’ve
got MORE OLD NAVY LOVE today.
I went shopping at Old Navy only because it was the most voted by you guys for Reader’s Choice in September.
And I’m afraid I might be hooked.
Do I love everything I try on? No. But that can be said for all stores.
Do I love some things? Yes, Ma’m.
And this flannel?
Well, I want to marry it it.
And I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
I’m not wearing any pants in the above picture.
It was late at night when I opened the package, and I just had to try it on and take a quick pic.
But in all seriousness, the shirt is greatness.
In fact, let’s take another moment to admire the same flannel from a couple of weeks ago in the red pattern (that is now available again).
Well played Old Navy, well played.
black tweed puffer vest HERE (sold out), but other black puffer HERE /
plaid shirt HERE
abalone earrings HERE, sanibel pendant HERE, similar jeans (just darker wash) HERE, and click HERE for a similar pair of jeans from Old Navy / Pillar Box red Hunter boots HERE
With this sale, I’m thinking both will sell out again over the weekend.
And I love it in the blue just as much as I do the red, and I didn’t think that was possible!
In fact, I’m cooking up an outfit in my head for next week where I pair the blue flannel with leopard!
In my head it’s DARLING :), so cross your fingers and stay tuned.

And fyi: the pixie pants are still $25 and perfect for the office.
So do you ladies remember me posting this next outfit inspiration board several weeks ago?
tunic HERE, ultra wide waistband MUST HAVE leggings HERE, cognac knee high boots HERE
Well, I ordered the tunic even though it was on back order and it arrived this week (ahead of schedule!).
When I first posted the above collage, I posed the following question:
I mean, really. How cute would we all be wearing this outfit?
There is no denying the greatness.
ultra wide waistband MUST HAVE leggings HERE, Frye boots HERE,
Kimberly necklace HERE, abalone earring c/o Kendra Scott HERE
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the tunic.
Also, the reviews talk about how the lace on the sleeves is tight, and I would agree.
I happen to like the sleeves tight, because I feel like it helps it not look sloppy.
However, if you have a large forearm, you might not like these sleeves. Just fyi.
It now says it isn’t supposed to ship until November 19th, but I’m hoping it might be earlier than that!
And I don’t want y’all to miss this, because I’m guessing it will be sold out soon.
It’s only available online, so keep that in mind.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
The little guy is playing on a t-ball team this year, and he’s the most precious baseball player I ever did see.
The first game of the season was H.O.T.
My friend Laura snapped this pic of him, and my mama’s heart melted when I saw it.
The cuteness is just about too much for me to handle.
Please stay this size forever.
I just got an e-mail that Anthropologie’s SALE IS ON SALE!
Use the code SALEONSALE
Some of my favorites:
Has anybody seen or does anybody have THIS RUFFLEBACK ANORAK?
Because it’s an anorak.
AND it has rufffles.
I’ve talked about THIS SERAPHINA BLOUSE before.
It was normally $189 (WHAT THE HECK?), but now it’s 25% off of $89.
Now we’re talking.
Some of my favs:
THIS top is on it’s way to me and will be in an upcoming post! Imagine it with dark skinny jeans and GORGEOUS heeled cognac tall boots! It would also could be gorgeous dressed up.
THIS is a great dark brown bootie. Love the buckle and the heel, and it also comes in black.
Still don’t have a military jacket? Well, HERE is a great one with phenomenal reviews!
When I checked my friend Narci’s blog this morning, I totally laughed out loud…
Here’s what it said…
Well, I’m not a genius.
I simply put it on when a GENIUS SALES LADY (Hi Vanessa!) told me to “put THIS on”.
I was just smart enough to know perfection when I had it on my body. 😉
(I get e-mails alllllll the time from mamas who say their babies have stolen their blardigans! Hilarious!)
