Just another gorgeous day around here. Great for layering one of my new favorite blouses and a favorite cardigan.

Cece Suede Ballet Flats in Bright Flame

I was able to find another pair of Cece Ballet Flats on ebay, this time in the Bright Flame. They are not as red as they show online but still great for a subtle pop of color. The Retro Lemon has now caught my eye. As for the Lemon Liftoff Blouse, my Anthropologie (La Cantera San Antonio) is having the 40% off sale items and there were a few of these blouses still available, if you are looking for one.

Enjoy your day!

Can you believe it is mid-October already? We are starting to feel just a slight nip in the air, but only in the mornings and after dark. Hence my first outfit from Tuesday. It was chilly and I was excited to wear my J Crew Maritime dress in Navy. You’ve seen me in the Sail Blue here. And now there is a black color as well. Online it looks too similar to the navy so I’ll pass on it. I went with rolled sleeves and my new TOMS Bennett Metallic Slip-On. These are exactly like my Metallic Cork Wedges but a flat version. I was surprised at how neutral this shoe was and wore the wedges a lot this summer so I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of the slip-on version as well. 
Unfortunately, I didn’t keep this on all day. It was pretty warm in the afternoon so I had to change before I was off to the salon and didn’t get pictures. 
Wednesday I brought out my new Whirligig Dress in Dark Orange. I love the wrap on this dress and it’s so comfortable for day-wear. Husband sprung a last minute cook-out with friends so I threw on my Lanvin Espadrilles to run to the grocery store. Even though they are espadrilles they have a dark jute wedge so they are still perfect to wear in the fall, at least in South Texas.

…And my new haircut. I love it and feel so much more like me now. I call it the “chic-mullet”…Mom-bob on the right, Short and Sassy on the left, with a touch of bang. I now have my best accessory back.

Thursday I was off to my parents hometown for an impromptu wedding shower. I wore my Twinkle Twinkle Dress by Girls from Savoy and my new Christian Louboutin Simple 70 pumps in Copper. They are such a gorgeous color and I just happened to be in Neiman’s the day after they arrived.

And finally, today, I had lots of errands so I brought out a great tunic from Lucky Brand that I bought on sale along with my J Crew Ankle Toothpick jeans and new “cheaper on ebay” Cece Suede Ballet Flats in Bright Flame.

Husband and I are off for a quick weekend get-a-way with friends tomorrow so I’m off to pack a bag.

Have a GREAT weekend.

I am drawn to kimono/dolman/butterfly sleeves on blouses. I feel like floating away in those tops. Seems that Anthropologie knows of my weakness as they have two styles of blouses with these sleeves currently.

Tsuru Blouse by Maeve – Size 8, Comes in Wine and Navy. I sized up to an 8 only because the lower part of the blouse was a little snug but I do recommend getting your normal size in this. The top part fits well across my chest and doesn’t pull. it has a side zipper. Purchase

Geo-Feather Blouse by Fei – Sz M. Again, I sized up to a Medium due to the snugness at the waist. I like the colors and pattern on this one but $98 for “dry-clean poly” is a bit much. I’ll be returning this and waiting for it to go to sale to purchase because I do like it. Sees the Sale Wishlist

Hip Cinched Blouse by Maeve – Size 6, Comes in Green and Gold. I never paid attention to this blouse online because the feature color is Gold. The yellow seemed kind of bland to me from the online picture but I saw the green on the rack behind the gold and was drawn to it because of the color. I like the “hip cinch” but I’m not sure about the bow. Also, this is very loose on top while the waist is cut a little slimmer. Because of this, the top portion does slip down and doesn’t stay put. The color is gorgeous and I like silhouette. I’m think I’ll wait for a sale on this one though. STS Wishlist
Lemon Liftoff Blouse by Girls from Savoy – Sz 8, I am a huge fan of GFS. This cute owl-print blouse with the neck tie is adorable and whimsy. I consistently wear a size 6 in GFS but had to size up to an 8 due to the tightness around my arms. That’s my only complaint. It fit everywhere else in the size 6 so take your normal size. Will purchase soon

Flori Dress by Girls from Savoy – Sz 6, This is such a beautiful, floaty, flowy “old-school” style dress. I do wish it was about two inches shorter for me (5’2”) but it will love even more lovely on those who are taller than me. Pass
