Alright, I am now more than half way through with the 30 for 30 challenge. So far so good! But I do look forward to wearing some different items later on. Like a new dress for the holidays and such. All this decorating around my place is giving me all sorts of ideas on what I should wear for holiday get togethers coming up soon. This outfit is not in the running though. This was more appropriate for a day at work instead. A little librarian-ish, don't you think? Actually after looking at the photos I'm not too thrilled with this look. I tried to incorporate the clogs again and I don't think they worked and the dress was way too clingy. Lesson learned and I'll move on from here:)

Well it's been about forever since I last updated this ole blog! Sorry about that. The holidays took over my life (but in a good way) and I just didn't have time to spend on the computer. But I'm back and all is good in the world!! I had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my home with my husband, his mom and stepdad, and my parents and sister. It was pretty fantastic! Food was plentiful and I made plenty of vegan veggie sides for everyone to choose from. My mom made the turkey since I don't eat meat and don't remember how to cook it anymore. So all in all is was a great evening spent with family and I made sure we watched Planes, Trains, and Automobiles for a nice Thanksgiving movie. I love John Hughes for making that film!

Hmmm...Lace again? Yes the skirt is lace and green and one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. It rings Christmas time to me too!! Although today felt anything but Christmas time because it was almost 80 degrees, but oh well. These types of days are numbered as we creep closer to winter time, so a little indian summer is alright in my book.

Getting used to this whole darkness early thing is quite the pain in the ass. I mean, I left my house at 4pm to take some photos while I walked my dog and it was already this dark! Crazy. I am having a bit of a schedule change this week and get off from work by 3:30, so I thought I'd take advantage of the extra sunlight I get to experience. It was great weather today so I really took it in and enjoyed a nice quiet walk with Starla. I even did my own photos in the woods today (as if you couldn't tell..hehe...) and got creeped out by all the little critters running around.
***Please note my sarcastic tone. I'm not that excited about mixing my fancy fabrics with my not so fancy ones, I just like it sometimes ;)

This was one of those days where I really didn't give a hoot about what I'd wear. I was basically busy doing my usual Sunday chores but I wanted to still keep in sync with my wardrobe for the 30 for 30 Challenge so I did something low key and easy. It seems like these skinny jeans are my best friend during the weekend. I always find myself leaning towards their comfy-ness and they go great with my warm cozy striped sweater.

Another military inspired look for my remix wardrobe. I am so glad I put this jacket in my items because it just seems to go with so much! Plus olive is becoming one of my favorite colors so I can't seem to stay away from this jacket for the life of me. And what goes better with olive than some cognac boots and belt? Well, maybe a ton of stuff, since olive is a neutral but this particular day it was all about the cognac!

Whew!!! Busy day yesterday! It was spent mostly baking like a crazy person. My friend wanted me to make her a cake which looked like a Tiffany's Box and I will gladly pat myself on the back and say what a good job I did. Unfortunatley everybody was so preoccupied with sangria that nobody remembered to eat the cake. I'll be stopping by there later for my slice though! Anywho, because of my hectic cake baking, I totally forgot to make a blog post! I'm trying to stay on track with these 30 for 30 posts so I don't lose track of how much time I wear the same clothes!

This had to be one of the chilliest days so far this fall! It excited me about the possibility of a tiny snow storm on the day of Christmas. It usually doesn't start to get uncomfortably cool until late December, so imagined my surprise when I layered a cropped jacket over a long sleeved sweater to find that it was still too cold to go gallivanting in just this. But I did go gallivanting in this outfit, despite freezing my butt off. You can't tell from the pics but I couldn't wait to get home and get warm.

Well I finally got around to getting those clothes washed and dried. About time, right? Actually my husband has been the one getting all the laundry done, so I'll go ahead and give him his props. Actually while he was doing all of our laundry, I was helping my mom with adopting this little guy!
post and I found this adorable dachshund? Well, my Mom saw him later in the day and decided that she was going to adopt him. So I may not have got sweet little Guiness, but at least my family did and I can see him whenever I want. My own Starla is totally enamored by him. They played for about an hour straight and even got comfortable enough to lay next to each other. I'm going to go ahead and say, it's all fate;)

Well today's outfit kind of came out by accident. You see, when I picked my 30 for 30 pieces about 1/3 of them were in the dirty laundry. So here's my excuse...I'm sort of lazy. I postponed the laundry duties for over a week due to not remembering to buy laundry detergent for 10 days in a row. So, this dress and blazer were about the only clean items I had left until tomorrow's laundry day. I'm glad it worked out though. Nothing is worse then being completely discombobulated with a closet full of 2 items. So I was left with this dress and this blazer and came up with a nice little outfit with my hints of brown. I don't know about you, but I think navy and brown just seem to go together so nicely.
