Unexpected Color Crush {Purple & Yellow}

Business Casual

The following information will perhaps cause you to clutch your pearls, buuuuut… truth be told, I’m not that crazy about the color purple and don’t have much of it in my wardrobe. Now red and blue, I can totally rock with. But I’ve just never been able to muster up much excitement for the color purple (aside from the movie and Broadway musical – the book was a little too heavy for me). In any case, I’m slowly coming around to it – especially when I recently found this gorgeous wool coat for fall. I decided that if I’m going to give purple a shot this season, I may as well go all in and commit with a major wardrobe staple. Once I paired it with yellow accessories (and freakin’ LOVED the way it looked), I knew I was finally coming around to it.

Revisiting the Sweatshirt

Everyday Outfits, My Style

A quick search through my archives alerted me to the fact that I haven’t worn a proper sweatshirt on the blog since 2015. Truth be told, sweatshirts are right up there with flip flops, band tees and Uggs on my list of things that I left pretty much behind in college. But alas, since motherhood already has me pulling all-nighters like it was sophomore year all over again – I figured I might as well be cozy while doing it. So here I am fully embracing mom style with not just a sweatshirt, but leggings and sneakers to boot!

As I slowly transition out of maternity leave, I’ve been working from home more and more these days. I wore this ensemble for an afternoon walk with my little bambino and a quick pit stop at a local cafe.  I had a few moments to spare, so I added a cute red beret, jaunty neckerchief, and a swipe of my favorite red lipstick before heading out.

Happy Halloween

Lifestyle


Well that escalated quickly…

I always planned to dress Christian as a lion for Halloween and had his costume ready for weeks. Since I already had a blue gingham dress, and thought “Hey, I’ll just wear that as a nod to Dorothy Gale.” All was good until I realized my red patent leather heels were in storage. “No sweat, here’s a perfect excuse to buy some ruby red slippers.”

Well of course as I was checking out, Amazon (in its infinite algorithm wisdom) suggested a little stuffed Toto in a picnic basket. So yeah, I bought that too. Everything arrives in the mail, I try it all on and realize “something” is missing from my getup… a white puffy sleeve blouse! After a quick online search, I realize that if I’m going to buy a blouse, I may as well go ahead and get the whole darn costume. So I did. And this folks is how I wound up as the only adult dressed up in costume at a children’s Halloween party.

End scene.

P.S. We look cute tho’. 😉
