Happy Halloween!!!

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Today seemed like a good day to break out the sweaters, but I was still cold in church. Brrr...

For an day of birthday festivating, including taking everyone who wanted to go out to Tucanos for lunch/dinner, I wore this jewel buttoned sweater in beautiful blue.

Today the dreaded EEG wires came off (along with a lot of skin, OUCH!), and I had to celebrate by wearing some real clothes, but it was also a cold day, so I needed something comforting. This bamboo cardigan and tank from Chicos fit the bill. I added bright jewelry for a little pop.

Tuesday - Thursday, October 25-27, 2011

Well, since I am taking an at home EEG test, I won't be posting outfits. Instead I'll be producing brainwaves.

I got this great fall colored jacket in the spring for next to nothing. This was my one and only day at work this week, so I went for the crazy necklace look to shake things up.

This is my nod to Princess Kate and all the nautical outfits she like to wear.

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Today I went with skinny black jeans and a crazy top. This was a just nice enough outfit to go to Kris's book signing at Barnes and Noble for her new book, Girls Don't Fly, and for window shopping at the mall with Megan.

I'm not sure whether this outfit was a hit or a miss, but I did get to wear my cute yellow flats, so that at least was a win-win. I wore this to go with the family to the Salty Dinner Theater's production of Frankenstein at the Old Spaghetti Factory Restaurant. Fun Times!

Do you ever have a black hole day in your life? Today was the first day of fall break. I got up and threw on sweats and stayed that way all day. So, just imagine that I was in something amazing today.

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Today I decided to wear this oldie but goodie from Talbots. I love this deep v-neck top I got for next to nothing about five years ago.

Serendipity--when something just comes together. I've never had a navy blazer. I've purchased a few through the years, but I've always ended up taking them back for one reason or another. So today as I was putting my outfit together I thought--this would be perfect with a blue top--but I don't have a blazer. Then I realized that I do have a navy topper from Chicos that I've hardly ever worn. So I tried them together and ending up really liking the combination. In addition, I really needed a tank to wear under this t-shirt, and this Chicos sale tank I got for three dollars is perfect. As I said, serendipity.

I decided to go with the very dressy look of these gray windowpane wide-legged slacks and an embellished silk cardigan. The dark red pumps gave it a touch of oompah.

Sunday, October 16, 2011

I figured today was a great day to wear this summery skirt and top as it's still quite warm.

Today I had a stake meeting to go to, so I wore this fun combination. This ponte skirt I got from Chicos is the bomb--looks great and sooo comfortable.

I decided to visit the jungle yet once again with this outfit.

So I wore my new Missoni cardigan. I really like this sweater--it's fun and funky but still imminently wearable.

I took a well needed break from life today, as my dislocated shoulder tendon and a full day yesterday spent moving and helping Megan put me in a pretty bad way today.
I spent a little while trying out various ideas for things to wear with the tweed pants I picked up for next to nothing. These are the Hepburn pants from Talbots, and they have a very high waist, so I probably won't be tucking very many things in.
I am hoping to wear more scarves this year, so I was trying out those ideas, too.

Saturday, October 8, 2011

Today was a rather dreary day, so I added this wool cardigan over my T-Shirt. Snuggy! I had to put this cardigan on and off many times while helping Megan move into a new apartment, and I even ended up wearing it inside out (by mistake, of course) when I went for a quick dash to Target.

While I was at Target, I absentmindedly looked at the Missoni for Target section. I missed out on the big sale, but I had picked up some cute folders and notebooks, which are always fun to have in bright, crazy colors.
I found that a few things had been returned, including these two scarves (one I think is actually a children's scarf, but it will still work). 
My big score of the day, however, was this vest (marked down to $12) and this cardigan. Someone who ordered them online had just returned them to the store. They are as cute as can be on--I can't wait to wear them!

Friday, October 7, 2011

Today I attended the UCTE Conference in Salt Lake City, so I dressed up and wore my chambray suit from Talbots. Last year I bought the jacket and pants, and this year I found a skirt to match. (This suit looks great on--I just haven't laid it out very nice here.)

I really love this fleece cardigan I picked up at Eddie Bauer--I just wish the sleeves weren't so long.

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

I had to try this jacket with several pairs of pants before I liked it--it definitely needs wide leg pants to balance the top.

One of the last warm days of the year.

Wow, what an outfit. This was to help keep me awake during General Conference.

Saturday, October 1, 2011

This turned out to be the perfect outfit for a day spent listening to General Conference and canning (and melting the microwave, but that is another story).

Thursday, September 29, 2011

As I hadn't worn this outfit to school, I wore it today without the blingy belt. Because these styling crocodile shoes are just a little loose (good for the tootsies), as I was swinging my legs and sitting on my table today one shoe went flying out into where the students were sitting. At least I was able to give them a good laugh. Ha!

Friday, September 30, 2011

I started out the day fully intending to wear this green work shirt, but I just couldn't do it. It is just not me. So, I went with the pink shirt instead, which I dressed down with the shorts when I got home.

I went with Autumn colors today.

I am finding this shirt a little hard to style, but I definitely like it tucked in better than left out.

This picture doesn't really do justice to how cute this outfit is. The sweater is actually a much more vibrant pumpkin color.

Saturday, September 24, 2011

For this lazy Saturday, I went with a oversized shirt over leggings. (And, no, I didn't wear red just because Utah whupped us.)

Friday, September 23, 2011

For this casual Friday, I went with my tried and true (and getting a little threadbare, Tommy Hilfiger crops, and a favorite Chicos top.

I picked this set up on a great Coldwater Creek sale many years ago. It still looks great and current for today, especially with the belted jacket.

Today I went for the simple but sophisticated style of this dressier outfit. I love these light wool flannel pants that I picked up at Talbots several years ago for next to nothing.

Today I actually spent most of the day hanging out in bed because I had to stay up all night due to a EEG test. If I had gone to work, I might have tried this outfit.
