30 for 30: day 17

Happy Halloween!! We're really looking forward to trick-or-treaters at our house for the first time! We never got them at our apartment, so this is a "first" for us!

The Mr. brought the pup to my office on a Friday afternoon and he (Turbo) made the rounds to say hello - most people heard him before they saw him... We were planning to go watch a parade with the pup and were even on our way there on this lovely fall day when I got the wild idea that we should instead head to a patio for a beer.
Or five.

So, instead of watching a parade, we did some patio drinking and eating. We met up with friends, ate some fried food, drank some beers, and were really entertained by all the people passing by who wanted to love on The Turbs.

He lapped it all up - when people would leave after petting him, he'd bark after them as if to say "Wait, what? You've leaving? Have you SEEN how adorable I am with my tongue sticking out?! I mean, look at me." 

I'd thrown the sweater and jeans in my car that morning before heading to work, knowing that I'm always cold and that the sun would set while we were still out. I'm so glad I had the extra layers and pants - sitting on the patio got pretty chilly, but I was bundled up (a jacket AND another scarf on top of this leopard one). But I wasn't too cold, and wound up with another outfit to share on this here blog. Another two-fer, right there.

30 for 30: day 15 & day 16

day 15

Pairing this ikat-ish print scarf with this pink/blush-colored skirt never crossed my mind before this round of 30 for 30. But, fancy that, there’s a wee bit of pink in this scarf.
A neutral tee (gray. *swoon* have I mentioned lately that I love gray? Because I do), and booties.

Ta da!

day 16



Hey hey, what do ya know? Some print mixing. If you didn’t see this one coming from a mile away, well, then…you obviously can’t read my mind that well…

This is one of my favorite outfits I've put together - not just this month, but in the past several months. The print mixing, the colors, the accessorizing.

*pats self on back*

Florals&stripes&teal faux leather for the win!

30 for 30: day 14

candy corn earrings from my sweet godmother
just being festive, y'know ;)

Lacey sweatshirt over black skinnies. Oh, and sandals. It's been really warm for fall, so I've gotten away with sandals. And wearing long sleeves can even be a bit much some days. I'm not complaining thought - snowy mornings and freezing temperatures will be here soon enough. #eww

30 for 30: day 12 & day 13

day 12
Day 12, I barely made it out of my pajamas, let alone make it out of my running gear...
a la Jimmy Fallon and (video HERE).
New favorite saying at our house.

day 13


Not my favorite outfit from this challenge. I think both the chambray and the pants are a bit big, and don't flatter my figure very well - I look a bit shapeless I think. However, they say wide-legged trousers are coming back, soooo, good thing I hung on to mine from high school, right?! Right.

Also, thanks to my bestie for taking these sunset-time pictures for me :) I tried to do a creative writing post, I kept coming up short. Womp womp.

30 for 30: day 11

This plum-hued outfit had friends over for drinks & some Cards Against Humanity. The husband and the friends (two friends from high school/college) made it out that evening, but I made it into my bed by 11 (!!!). Cards Against Humanity, wine, and some shots of Rumchata really did me in quite early...oh, and I ran a 5K that morning with some girl friends - I mean, I can't be expected to be an ATHLETE and a late-night party animal, can I?

I'm currently spending time with one of my cousins, and we made plans to go out one night...stay tuned to hear how it went ;)

30 for 30: day 10


This top is another favorite. I got it back in August and was so excited to finally get to wear it! It's an olive/gray-ish knit, with a chiffon back that isn't connected on the sides. It's just so different and I don't have anything like it. I was really drawn to it off the bat - the colors, textures, and overall look aren't TOO out there, so it's a great, fun, yet almost neutral, long sleeved top.

30 for 30: day 9


Here's the new and better fitting version of my buffalo plaid button-up. I love this shirt so much - I want to wear it
Even wore it to a meeting on a construction site and got complimented on my attire.
I mean, when in Rome...

30 for 30: day 8

Handsome just loves to be outside.
he loves to sit in the sunshine and roll in the grass.
I just love this wrinkley face and funky tongue.

We've been having some really lovely weather this fall (no snow yet!). I'm starting to see why everyone just loooooves fall. I'm not quite there. Yet...

But you know what I do love? That handsome white bulldog up there :)
