October 4, 2011: Rose, Navy, Grey, Olive

T-Shirt: Madewell
Jeans: Madewell
Belt: American Apparel

Happy October everyone! The weather has been so summery lately that September seemed to just flash right by. Yesterday though, we finally had some cooler weather. I'm still getting over last weeks nasty cold (thank you for all the get better's), so comfort is key to me. When I received this cozy sweater in the mail from Lulu's, Chris saw it on the bed and said "is this a blanket...with arms?" I can tell you thats exactly what it feels like when I wear it! I paired it with some super soft jeans, an easy t-shirt, and a pair of surprisingly comfortable heels for polish. Blowfish makes the most comfortable shoes, I love this pair of houndstooth booties, perfect for fall.

I can't get over how insane the past month and a half has been. I thought things would calm down after the wedding but not the case! Something pretty big has gone down this past week and I can't wait to tell you all about it! BUT it's still a big secret...so you'll have to wait! And no, I'm not pregnant. People always seem to think that when a newlywed has news.

Blanket with arms sounds pretty amazing to me - I could use one of those right now with all the rainy cold weather we're having! Hope you feel better soon!!

Ah I love those shoes! I need to go more "jean" type posts. I sometimes forget that a classic pair of denim can go a long way. Your hair of course looks awesome as always. Cant wait to hear the big news!

I love that sweater! I've been really into over-sized, drapey cardigans and capes lately...it looks so lovely on you. :)

I can't wait to hear more of your big news! :)

Hope you're having a delightful day!

"And no, I'm not pregnant."
Haha! So many people respond to my "Guess what"s with "You're pregnant?!" Boo. I love that sweater, I have a similar one in black and it's just so snuggly.

sallie oleta barbee said...

oh my god, so true about the pregnant comment. i've never had so many people ask me about babies since i got married! you look awesome as usual. i've often wondered if people would give me weird looks if i just wore my blanket....

Kitsune-kun said...

ahhh love the rainbow! your bun truly is something to aspire toward.....all my hair would probably fit in about 1/10 of it....and gazing longingly at your blog is both good and bad for my growing out phase.

I have to have that sweater/blanket with arms! It's so chic and comfy looking! Love how you paired it with the booties.
ps, the word verification for this comment is "pregost"...doesn't help your "I'm not pregnant" case ;)
