Plaid + Stripes

Are you sick of this patterned blanket scarf yet?  It has become my second skin this season, because it just seems to go with everything.  See it here and here!  On a side note, are you supposed to wash scarves after wearing them on a near daily basis?  Asking for a friend...

Winter is Coming

If you know me, you know that I tend to get into popular things way too late.  I just discovered Harry Potter and Gilmore Girls this year (why didn't anyone tell me they were so good??).  Thanks to Netflix and audio books I can enjoy all these things "binge style" which I'm sure is the way God intended it.  Who has time to watch a show week to week or wait for the next book in the series to come out anymore? Not me.

This week I was sick for a few days and bound to my couch like glue.  This is when I discovered that apparently we pay for HBO.  Not only do we have HBO, but every episode of  little show (you probably haven't head of it) called Game of Thrones was just waiting for me to watch.  Two seasons conquered in two sick days.  That's a person record!

Mittens

We are officially entering that time of year where only little slivers of skin can be exposed before you turn into a human popsicle!  I had to break out gloves for the first time this year, and the fact that they are cute knit mittens lessens the blow!

Maroon + Blush Pink

This weekend Indiana was blessed with that crisp fall weather that is not quite winter-esque yet.  It made for nice walks around the neighborhood during the day and perfect couch snuggling weather by night. This is what I wore for a sushi date and a Gilmore Girls marathon binge sesh.  I love the mix of maroon and blush pink!  This was one of the 4 outfits I tried on Thanksgiving morning and vetoed in favor of tights and slip on sneakers so that I could roll around with my niece after dinner.  It almost made the Thanksgiving day cut, so I just wore it later in the weekend!

All Good

Black and blue go together like macaroni and cheese.  Who doesn't love this combination?  I'll admit that there was a time when I followed "color combination rules" and wouldn't mix black and blue (oh high school...), but who cares about any of that anymore? Aside from mixing different shades of black (because I look like I got dressed in the dark) I don' have any dos and don'ts about color mixing.  It's all good in my book!

Lady Mix-a-Lot

As the song goes "my anaconda don't want none unless you've got buns hun!"  Well I got ya covered... that is if we are referring to hair buns.  If you've ever heard the phrase the higher the hair the closer to Heaven then I am right at those Pearly Gates!

The Devil's Pattern

When I was in junior high I took a class similar to a "modern" Home Ec class.  We learned about cooking, raised those fake crying babies and even learned about fashion.  Well, let me put this another way.  We watched some terrible video telling us about how horrible horizontal stripes were.  This video is seared into my brain, and I literally think of it every time I wear horizontal stripes aka the devil's pattern.  Despite this complete waste of time video, I am happy to have this sweater!
