This was the first Halloween we have spent in town since 2007. With certain things going on, I didn't really get into the spirit until the actual weekend.

On Friday we carved pumpkins.

On Saturday we went to a party.

And today I helped get an unhappy little lobster get ready.
Happy Halloween!

Keeping it simple

top: Anthro
jacket: Armani Exchange, remix'd
pants: J. Crew, remix'd
socks: J. Crew, remix'd
shoes: Marc Jacobs, remix'd
necklace: Me&Ro, gift'd&remix'd

I have been drinking a bit too much wine and not working out enough this week. I attribute this to the hubs getting a new job. And the cooler weather: snuggling is much better than running in cold weather :)

Again, today I was not much in the mood for getting dressed for work. Hopefully this will be my last Saturday to work for at least a little bit. I bought this top back in May with my birthday discount, but haven't worn it until today. I think it's time to bring out the rest of my fall clothes!

I hope your Saturday is more fun than mine!

P.S. I decided to end the month on a pink note.

Back to basics

102910 me
all items remix'd
top+pants: Gap
shoes: Geox
earrings: gift'd
necklace: AE

This is what you throw on when you haven't thought about what to wear, are a bit dazed from the Project Runway results from last night and want to be comfortable. Basic but boring. Oh well, they can't all be winners.

Is it just me or has this week felt insanely long?

About time

top: Loft
cardi: Loft, remix'd
skirt: J. Crew, remix'd
boots: Nine West, remix'd
necklace: gift'd&remix'd
belt: Gap, remix'd

A cool front came through last night and blew away most of the humidity, thank goodness. Supposedly the temperature will drop even more later tonight. Let's keep our fingers crossed! I'm just happy I can actually wear some boots :)

I have been experimenting with different places to take my remix photos. I like the bright blue background of our house, but that location is right next to the neighbors house and I hate when I get busted for taking a photo. I'm sure they think I'm a little cra-cra.

I bought this top last year but haven't worn it until today. I guess that's the risk you run when buying things on sale at the end of the season. At least it's like having new clothes the next year. I'm also liking the colors today. Unfortunately they are more pumpkin than pink!

A late start

top: NY+Co, remix'd
skirt: Anthro
shoes: Marc Jacobs, remix'd
necklace: Me&Ro, gift'd&remix'd
belt: Anthro, remix'd

This Anthro skirt is another silhouette that I don't typically wear, but for the price I wanted to try it out. My only complaint is that by the end of the day, wrinkles are everywhere!

Don't you hate when you feel like people are only telling you half-truths, especially at work? I have a sneaking suspicion...

pink challenge
P.S. I am actually wearing a tiny bit of pink today: the piping on my shoes :)

What happened?

all items remix'd
top: J. Crew
pants: Loft
shoes: Geox
earrings: Tiffany's, gift'd

The weather has been slowly becoming more and more humid over the last week or two. WTF? Ah, the joys of living in H-town are neverending :)

I've got a meeting later on this afternoon, so will eventually don a jacket and some heels. But until then, I am dressing for comfort. No pink today either. Sometimes being professional and pink can be difficult!

P.S. Sorry if I haven't been commenting as much lately on your blogs. Our desktop computer died (luckily just some parts, not the hard drive). The hubs has got things working on our laptop, but it's functionality is not great and for whatever reason, reading blogs on Blogger can be a pain. Hopefully we will be up and running with a new computer in the next few weeks!

Week in photos

Driving back from Austin. Texas is flat, which makes for boring drives but cool landscape shots.

Funday Sunday birthday celebration for the birthday girl!


dress: Anthropologie
shoes: J. Crew, remix'd
shades: Dqsuared, remix'd
earrings: gift'd, remix'd

This dress is normally not a silhouette that I wear, but for $29.95 I couldn't pass it up.

I mean, bright colors, stripes and pockets, what's not to love?

The hubs took these photos for me so we had a little fun.

Hee hee :)

A quickie

all items remix'd
top: NY+Co
skirt: Old Navy
shoes: J. Crew
earrings: gift'd
necklace: gift'd
belt: Gap

Not wearing as much pink today - but still wearing it!

I am slowly dealing with the stress in my life that I am considering my "new normal" for now. But, as one of my co-workers said, life is a journey and you gotta take the good with the bad.

3 things for today:
1. The hubs has received some good news on the job front, which has alleviated at least half my stress.
2. Another 3 day weekend to look forward to.
3. A good run in the morning does a body and soul good.
