Happy Black Friday Shopping

It's 12:30 am and I know there are plenty of you already out shopping.  Wish I could join you, but I'm actually enjoying my (early) Black Friday purchase already...my new laptop!

I try to get all my Christmas shopping done on Black Friday every year, and am usually successful.  There wasn't anything I needed to get up extra early for (even though I somehow stayed up extra late) so I better get a move on so I can hit the sales in the late morning, after all the crowds have left.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend and happy shopping!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!  There is so much to be thankful for in this life and I hope you take a moment today to think of what matters most to you.  Two years ago today, we started announcing to family we were expecting our first child.  I cannot tell you how thankful I am for this little girl in my life.  Even when she throws a tantrum or screams at me (in the library of all places), I can't help but love her and think she might have a little too much me in her!

Enjoy today - whether with friends, with family, with a feast, or just a meal.  There's always something to be thankful for!

Where I've Been

Where have I been the last several months you ask?  Well, that's an interesting question.  See, it starts with family coming in town to visit (which we love) and then we moved apartments.  Even though its literally two miles south of where we were before, it took us TWO weeks.  TWO weeks to move.  So frustrating - you might think there's "just one car load left" but everytime we said that our stuff doubled magically. 

Then I refinished some furniture (which turned out beautifully if I say so myself).  But you can't really post outfit pictures if you're dressed in grungy clothes to go paint some more.  And then when all of my projects were done and I sat done to blog - TA-DA! My laptop broke.  Yep.  The hinges were on its last leg and it just decided it never wanted to turn on again.  Don't worry, don't worry, I backed up everything before we moved so I didn't lose a thing.

Long story short, I'm now at the mercy of borrowing Husband's computer.  As you can see, it takes me a long time to get a hold of that sucker. But have no fear, I've got several posts all ready so you might be hearing from me too much for the next little while!

Everybody Everywear: Yellow

I was so excited that the next Everybody Everywear pick was yellow!  I love yellow and am addicted to it.  So I thought this would be a cinch to style, until I got dressed this morning.

I tried belting at the waist, at the waist under my 2nd layer, at my hips.  I knotted a shirt, I buttoned the shirt.  I put on wedges, then flats.  Didn't love any of it.  So I went with this:
Simple.  But I'm happy with it.   Shoes are Enzo Angiolini, capris are Wet Seal (previous season), shirt is ModBod, button-down is Express, necklace and headband is ShopBop (see here).

Style Inspired: Easy A and Emma Stone

Source: Imdb.com
I loved Emma Stone's style in Easy A (before the uh, "makeover").  I loved the layering, the casual feeling of it without being a simple t-shirt, just everything about it.  And yes, these are the best pictures I could find to showcase my inspiration.

 I've been on the lookout for a great vest since I saw the show and haven't seen a thing.  I wanted something with structure that could easily dress up or down and I found nada.  So, I did what I do best.  I made one. 
The vest might look familiar since I've worn this before for the BDIB: Prep School challenge.  And really, I truly love it. So here's the schpeal on the rest of my outfit:  shoes are Calvin Klein, jeans are from Gap (limited edition, previous season), t-shirt from Gap, vest is custom, bracelets were a gift.  I also made the pin from some leftover fabric of another project.
So what do you think?  Did I do a good job of fusing my inspiration with my own style?

Guest Model & New Winner

Shirt from Ann Taylor Loft (previous season), belt from Fossil, skirt from Gap (previous season), shoes from Antonio Melani, sunglasses are Steve Madden

So our guest model today isn't anyone special to you, but she's special to me - and she just turned one!  And in case you're wondering her outfit is from Gymboree. :)

Also, I haven't been able to get a hold of last week's Summer Giveaway and I assumed that everyone else took a nice break for the 4th like me, so I held off announcing a new winner until today.  So our new winner is....TINAGIRL
Congrats, you have 48 hours to contact me!

Skirt Anyone?

So remember how I go to church every Sunday and dress up but nowhere on this blog is a Sunday picture?  And don't even worry that this is Thursday and I'm getting around to posting Sunday's outfit - we've had a busy week. 
Shirt from Limited, belt from Ann Taylor Loft, skirt is custom, shoes are Antonio Melani
