On the go...

Today was one of those days where I had one thing to do after the next...I went to bed way too late last night too (possibly staying up to scope out the Anthro sale...maybe) so I was super tired this morning. I'm a night owl but boy do I pay for it at 6:30am every morning when it's time to get up! This morning I got my son off to school and then met up with a few of the other resident wives for brunch. It was nice to get together and chat (commiserate) with each other about everything while the kids all played. As soon as that was over I rushed home so my youngest could get a nap and then dropped the kids off at another friend's house so I could go work in my oldest son's classroom. After school it was the usual routine of homework, play, dinner, bath and bed. Crazy day.

When I went to get dressed this morning I had nothing in mind to wear...I hate mornings like that! I wish I would wake up everyday with an entire outfit planned out, head to toe. Kind of like meal planning (which I'm sooo not good at again) I should try clothes planning. Novel idea! It could save me countless mornings of indecision over what to wear. So anyways, after giving myself 10 seconds to make a decision, here's what I ended up wearing:

-Grand Ruffle Shell-J Crew
-Floral Cardigan-Old Navy
-Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Rocket Dog Flats-Macy's
-Necklace-New York & Co.
-Earrings-Forever 21
-Ring-American Eagle

My Old Navy boots arrived today and it was a HUGE disappointment. I really love the way they actually look...but the shaft of the boot was GINORMOUS on me! I have chicken legs and while that can be a good thing most times, when it comes to finding boots that fit well, it's always been an issue. I tried them on a few times, trying to talk myself into keeping them, but when you can fit your entire fist into the boot with your leg, that's probably a good indication that they're too big. SO bummed. Back to the drawing board for me. I have been looking at the Steve Madden "Intyce" boots, which the Old Navy boots were made to look like I would guess, and they are tempting me, but I still want to look around and see what else I can find. Anyone have any great suggestions?

And as for that little bit of Anthro sale browsing I did last night...I did indeed manage to pick a few things up. I grabbed the Whirl & Wind Cardigan in Gold (called a local store and had them ship it) and a second Molded and Melded Tee since I love my green one so much. I picked one up in the "Wine" color. For $30 it's hard to pass that up! It honestly pained me to pay for shipping this's the first order I've placed with Anthro since the free shipping deal ended on Labor day. Hopefully the holidays will bring back free shipping...that would be awesome! Did you pick anything up from today's sale???

I'm off to go watch some TV before winding down for the night...gotta get my "Glee" fix for the night!


  1. Oh wow! I love that cardigan. Is it really from Old Navy?!?

  4. Love yellow and gray!! Do you ever use Polyvore? It's saving me sooo much time debating outfits in the morning!

  5. I love the pops of yellow on the cardigan! So cute! I just became a follower of your blog!

  6. Well, it looks like you had this outfit pre-planned, it's adorable from head to toe! I picked up the same M&M tee in wine, I think it will be great with the holidays coming up. Sorry your boots didn't work out, I was just reading a post...chasing davies? I think about a pair from Kohls with a 13" shaft - they looked really cute!

  7. You look cute! I have that cardi & I love how you wear it! I am so glad to read that I'm not the only one who stays up late & regrets it the next husband always tries to get me to go to bed when he does, but I end up staying up for hours...such a bad habit!

  8. love your grab and go outfit!! I tried the Intyce but they were too wide in the calf ..AND too tall for my short legs. I have yet to find a knee high boot that hits below my knees and has room for my hand with my the old navy were for you..... any suggestions anyone. The Intyce are cute. BUt not when they krunkle over on themselves giving a strange twist above the ankle
