30 for 30: day 27 & day 28

day 27


Just your typical “skinnies and a sweater” look. Throw on python print flats to make you look tough (since you're wearing a marshmallow-y cream cable-knit sweater) and then realize that this outfit is really similar to what you wore two days before…whoops?

day 28

Oh, ya know, a navy blue floral scarf over a navy blue sweater. Nothing terribly exciting, but it still turned out well. I’m finding that the best outfits don’t have to be complicated, or over the top, or incorporate at least 7 trends – sometimes they’re really easy, and comfortable, too.

Since it's Veteran's Day today, make sure to hug your favorite vet :)
Mine happen to be my Mom & Dad - thank you for serving, Colonels!

30 for 30: day 23 & day 24

day 23



I knew the Denver Broncos were playing this evening, so I donned my t-shirt and mixed some more black and brown with skinny jeans. I also needed to be comfortable, because I got to go into work early, run all over campus and town, then head straight to the airport for a very late flight. I made a (way too) short visit to my cousin and extended family and friends, and made it to my destination just in time to fall into bed an hour or two past my Colorado bedtime.

day 24

My cousin is a late sleeper, so I also got to sleep in (!!!), do some reading, have come coffee, and check out a new outlet mall. Some (more) of my favorite things, all in one day. Getting to sleep in and read were my most favorite though…

Later, more cousins and aunts and uncles appeared with pizza and beer and mixed drinks, and we caught up and got to have a nice evening in.

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 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...
