Mad For Plaid

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I am so behind the times, but I finally got a chance to spend some time with my DVR and watch the season finale of Mad Men!  As usual, I was enamored with Betty's wardrobe.  Her plaid shirtdress is fabulous!


I also really love this plaid shirt dress she wore in season two (I think)!


My serious crush on Betty's plaid shirt dresses got me to thinking about how much I love plaid!  Wearing plaid makes me feel like I'm wrapping myself in fall.  (Is that weird?)  My go to outfit this time of year is definitely a plaid shirt with skinny jeans.


Luckily, when I feel like straying from my usual outfit, there are tons of other fabulous options out there!

Is anyone else crazy over plaid?  What's your go to outfit for fall?

Do You Impulse Shop?

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Last night hubs and I trekked out to Target for two things - a prescription refill and kitty litter for the Poe Cat. I don't know about y'all, but I can't seem to leave Target without several things I didn't intend on purchasing when I walked in the store.  For some reason hubs never seems to see this coming and looks slightly surprised when I suggest we "wander" after we obtain whatever item we set out for originally.

I bought what I consider to be some particularly good impulse buys last night and so I though I'd share them with you!

This is my favorite Disney movie!!  I have been waiting for them to "release it from the vault" for what feels like forever!  It came out right before my 6th birthday and as soon as I saw it I fell in love!  Did anyone else have the Beauty and the Beast barbie dolls where you could take off the Beast costume and he was all of the sudden the handsome prince?

How cute are these pj pants!  They were so snuggly too, I couldn't pass them up!
{I copied the picture from the Target website and cropped it because I wasn't comfortable posting a picture with this girl's stomach on my blog.  Yes...apparently I am a prude...}

As much as I love fashion, I live in pj pants at home.  Nicholas thinks my ability to change into pj pants practically seconds after stepping into our home could be a super power.  He makes fun of me because while he's still setting down his things and looking through mail I am already coming down the stairs in my pj pants.

Has anyone tried essie good to go?  One of my biggest problems with painting my nails is having to sit still while I wait for them to dry.  I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I'll let y'all know how well it works when I do!

What a clever idea!  I carry just about everything else I could possibly need around with me in my giant purse...why not an extra pair of shoes!

What are some of your favorite impulse buys?

My First OOTD Post!

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

I feel like a nerd for posting this insanely goofy picture of myself, but here is my first OOTD post!  It's finally turning into fall and I was really in the mood for some plaid today.

{Gap plaid shirt, J Brand black skinnies, and Nine West shooties.  The necklace is my own creation.}

A jumble of leftover chain, a couple vintage chains, and some glass/crystal thrown in.

In other news...we had a fabulous weekend here in Virginia!  Hubs was able to come home for the whole weekend and my parents flew up from Florida for the FSU game.  FSU won 34-14!

{needed a little more garnet and gold in my outfit so I pulled out an old KD hearts the Noles button from college!}

Mason supported the Noles by wearing his FSU collar...

...and I'm sure if we could get the Poe Cat to wear a collar it would be FSU too!  (Instead Poe Cat prefers to run around the house in the buff collar-free.)

Nicholas is on his final week of this away rotation and I could not be more excited for him to come home! 

Five Fall Fashion Must-Haves

Friday, October 1, 2010

Happy Friday!  I am so excited for this weekend!  Nicholas has the whole weekend off and is coming home for the FSU/UVA game tomorrow!  I can't wait to cheer on the Noles...especially now that it's actually starting to feel like fall!  Today is absolutely gorgeous with clear skies and cooler temperatures, which is totally getting me in the mood for fall shopping!  Here are five of my must-haves this fall:

Wrist Warmers



Plaid Shirts

Vintage (or Vintage-Inspired) Brooches

I am obsessed with J. Crew's Minnie pants!  I have several pairs in the stretch twill and this year they have the wool Minnie pants in petite sizes too!
