Dreaming...and catch-up OOTD posts

I am dreaming of fall...dreaming of piling on layers of clothes...shirts, sweaters, socks, boots, many fabulous layers to choose from. On Monday I dressed a little warmer because we headed down towards the city. Tuesday, however, it was back in the 90's. Too hot! Then there was felt like fall. It was pretty cold this morning, but perfect in the afternoon. Just a little taste of what's to come (never mind that it's suppose to be back in the 80's on the weekend...blah blah blah). I got the September Anthro catalog in the mail yesterday and am totally in love with so many fall pieces...the wish list grows longer and longer. Darn you Anthro for tempting me with all your cute clothes, shoes and jewelry! Most will remain on the wish list but I'm hoping a few will find their way to my closet eventually.

Onto a few outfits from the past few I said, on Monday I dressed for cooler weather as we headed to the bay:

-Ruffle Tee-LOFT (Spring 2010)
-Percussive Cardigan-Anthropologie (got on sale--no longer online)
-Skinny Jeans-American Eagle-Shoes-Target
-Bracelet-gifted from my grandma--came from my great-great aunt Anna's collection
-Earrings-American Eagle

Tuesday---back to school day! I worked in my son's classroom on Tuesday and let me tell ya, it wore me out! Talk about a workout! =)

-Grand Ruffle Shell-J Crew (sale item-Spring 2010)
-Ruffle Cardigan-Old Navy (Spring 2010)
-Cropped Skinny Jeans-Gap (got for $25 on sale)
-Metallic Sandals-Madden Girl-via DSW Shoes
-Necklace-Old Navy

And finally, today (sorry--this one's a little blurry). It was super chilly this morning and never really warmed up a whole lot so I wore the cardigan most of the day:

-Ruffle Trim Tee-J Crew (Spring 2010--sale item)
-Hidden Placket Cardigan ("peach" color--even though it looks pink in real life)-Banana Republic-got this during the last Give and get sale--I LOVE it!!!
-Matchstick Jeans-J Crew Outlet
-Wedge Sandals-Old Navy
-Ring-Forever 21
-Necklace-Tiffany--gifted from my husband

So there ya go...a three day wrap-up! I was all about the cardigan again these past few me a cute cardigan! Tune in tomorrow when I debut my birthday present to myself (could it be yet another cardigan...perhaps??)--I won't be posting till later in the afternoon because I'm getting my hair done in the morning and then babysitting for a bit in the early afternoon. Till then...have a good day! =)


  1. I love the color of your Weds cardigan! It's getting cool here too... this morning was down right chilly when I left for work!

  2. All three outfits are super cute! I tried to pick a favorite but I couldn't because I like them all.

  3. I just have to tell you how much I love your blog!! Whenever I get a chance to check blogs, yours is the first I do check! As a fellow mommy I just love your cute, instyle, comfortable style and really want every outfit you put together! I do have a question .... do you like your grand ruffle shell from J Crew? I am thinking of getting it and want opinions .....

  4. Love all of them! I really love the percussive cardi on you and am sad I missed out on it.

  5. Thanks ladies!
    Jess--You are so sweet--thanks so much for the compliments! Us mommy's gotta stick together! =) I have to say I really do like the Grand Ruffle Shell...this coral colored one is the first one I bought, and I actually ended up buying the gray slate colored one off Ebay for just $19 with shipping a few months later because it was a great piece. I find I get more use out of the gray one actually, but the coral is a good summery color. Hope that helps!
