Oh my goodness!!! We have a whole bunch of fashionistas that follow this blog. Lol! You gurl’s were so good as your assessment of my outfit yesterday. I actually LOVED all the comments about what you would have done differently. I feel like the proud mama bird watching her baby birdies fly. Haha! This is exactly what you need to be doing with your own outfits before you leave the house daily.I had a couple of people message me to see if all the comments were hurting my feelings and my BFF Sandy called and said, “What are you thinking?” “Why did you invite all the criticism?” Here is how I looked at the post, I knew what I didn’t like and I wanted to “test” you gurl’s. If I had thought the outfit looked great and I got that kind of reaction then I might have been upset. Lol! Instead, I was tickled to see your reactions. Yes, the pants were not the right choice. And, I personally did not like the purse with the outfit. I thought all the colors just didn’t jive. What I did like was that the boots matched the cardigan almost exactly. I would have worn skinny blue jeans with this and put a cuff above the booties. I may even do that and post a picture for you to see the difference. Some mentioned the jewelry, but I like the leather and the lace, I would leave it as is. Yep, I definitely see a remake coming soon. Lol! I may make this a new segment on the blog, kind of like the game that used to be on Sesame Street. One of these things doesn’t belong, or maybe a couple of things doesn’t belong. Haha! Anyway, I give you all an “A!”
Did you know that you could still be colorful in the Fall? I tend to think of Fall fashion as only camel, navy, gray, burgundy, etc. Who knew that you could wear magenta and baby blue in the Fall? This was one of those outfits that just comes together by accident. Let’s start with the magenta tunic top. This is a LOGO top that I bought at the outlet store early this Spring when they were having a sale to get rid of the stock that was left over from the Winter. All the clothing at the overstock outlet is 12.00, but because it was on sale, I paid 6.00 for this top.
I don’t think I have worn these earrings before. I actually bought the entire set, necklace, earrings, and bracelet, but I just haven’t found the right outfit to wear them with. The earrings are super cute with the light blue pearls dangles.Here is the matching bracelet. I have been carrying this purse a lot here lately. I don’t normally like a black purse, but I go through phases where I that will be all I will carry. Black goes with anything so I don’t have to change purses if I don’t want to. Since the scarf had streaks of black running through it, I thought black accessories would look good. This is a GILI purse from the outlet store.
This is another bracelet that I have never worn. It is entwined threads on a gold cuff. The threads are pinks, blues, and a few other colors thrown in. I thought it looked like a Summer bracelet and never thought I would get to wear it this Fall.

This is super soft and cozy. I love a duster, but I didn’t get the best pictures. It looked better in real life just walking around.Don’t you just love the colors in this scarf? I am going to truth out. This Logo top is that kind of material that tends to cling right to your body and I was not happy that it was “clinging” to my stomach. I decided to hide that fact, so instead of wearing a necklace, I chose this scarf instead. By wearing it long it covers all the bumps that might have made me self-conscious. I bought this scarf at the first of the year at Cato’s.
I did not want to wear these boots, they are not the pair I had in mind. I wanted to wear my Marc Fisher booties (here) but I couldn’t find them. Am I the only one who misplaces shoes, purses, and jewelry? I looked everywhere and finally gave up and put these on. This is a pair I bought at the first of the year when Belk’s was having a huge clearance. These are by Bandolino, and they are alright, but they are not my favorite.
I know that you don’t even want to know about these distressed jeans, but I am going to tell you about them anyway. Haha! I bought these last year at Cato’s and I have worn them over and over. These jeans are my most pinned picture on Pinterest.
I know the boots are too heavy for this outfit, so don’t hassle me about them. Haha Instead concentrate on the elements you DO like and make your own outfit. That is what this blog is all about, not copying my exact look but about taking ideas and making them your own.
I know everyone is not interested in Rodan and Fields, so that is why I post about it at the end of my blog, you can simply choose to skip over anything you don’t want to know about.

The reason I post about R & F is because I love the products, and I love the results. You have heard me say over and over again that I love a jacket or cardigan because they help hide any lumps and bumps I have. However, my face is the one thing that I cannot hide. It is out there for EVERYONE to see EVERY DAY, and I want to look the best I can.
