Hello monday!  Mondays are pretty much NO fun when you are sick but still have a long to do list.  Yesterday morning I woke up with the start of a soar throat, so I doctored myself all day long, and will continue to through the holiday season.  It's funny, I got sick a few days before Thanksgiving last year too!  My body must be on some sort of sick time schedule.  Ive got 3 solid days now before Thanksgiving to get myself back to normal. 

I wore this outfit above a week ago (seems so much longer than that) when we had errands to run in town.  I got my new glasses that day, which I have worn every day since!  I actually don't think I have even put my contacts in since I got them.  This outfit has a few of my favorite pieces Ive had in my closet for a while... besides the jewelry & scarf, none of these items are in stores anymore, at least I highly doubt it.  I think this sweater will be a timeless piece in my closet.  I love the way it looks with this scarf from Elizabeth Gillett.  The scarf is BIG and super thin and soft, so it could be worn a million ways.  It's so pretty, like an earthy watercolor painting... I'm really thinking about hanging it on my wall as a piece of art when I'm not wearing it. 

Oh, and that pretty mug... I wish I could remember the artists name.  I picked it up at a local art show several years back and lost her card.  It's the prettiest mug Ive ever seen though.

I'll be emailing the winners of the giveaways that have ended soon.  There are a few more still running that will be ending any day now, so make sure to enter before they are over.

It's been fun to find new ways to style my kimonos now that the weather is getting colder.  If you know me at all you know I am a KIMONO HOARDER.  But most of them are so light and airy and have big bells sleeves it can be hard to layer them under jackets or make them be warm.  I don't own many long sleeve tees at all, its just never been something I gravitate towards, but I do have just a couple basic ones.  I ended up loving this look, so I will be on the lookout for some more long sleeve tees for other color options!  I can't remember where I got this orange one a few seasons ago, but I love the way it looks with this kimono, which might be my new favorite.  It is so light and comfortable, and I'm always a lover of paisley prints!

My dark hair has really grown on me.  I think I'm almost loving it more than the ombre now.  And believe it not it has not faded to any funny colors on the end where it was super blonde!  I was worried I was going to have to do a couple takes but it blended in perfectly after a few washes and does not seem to be fading out! 

Yesterday James and I went to Austin to go see Saves The Day play!  It was a fun night, but Ill share more about it in another post.  I have several things I need to attend to today... I'm about to post another giveaway so don't forget to check out all the giveaways going on right now.  The first ones are ending already.  I'll be emailing the winners within a few days of each giveaway closing.  I added a scrolling widget at the bottom of the homepage for giveaways yesterday so now you can easily see if there are any new ones available from the front page!

outfit details:  shirt - skyline fever // jeans c/o pylo // purse c/o rossio roos // turquoise ring c/o bella & chloe


I was going through some photos on my hard drive and realized I have quite a few outfit posts from past months that never even made it to the blog.  I knew I had a few from more recently, but I actually have a few from a while ago... like this one from sometime in September!  This is the exact reason why I needed to take a break, ha ha.  Too many little details were getting lost in the files.  I'm on a mission to drag them all out so I can be completely caught up and ready for a new fresh season with a clean slate.  (So you may see quite a few outfit posts here for a while, along with a few posts from warmer weather days...)

I loved this simple outfit.  I wore this to a friend's birthday party.  I think I have about 5 different Skyline Fever Dylan tees!!!  A normal one, an oversized one for lounging around the house in, one that I cut as a crop top, one that I cut as a muscle tank and this one that is slashed up.  It really is the best tee in my opinion, but you know, I may be a little biased ;)  My favorite thing to pair it with is these Pylo bell bottoms.  Oh, and see that cute little pouch in these photos?  Well, its gone.  In just 2 weeks of not eating grains, dairy & sugar, my little pouch Ive been carrying around for years is gone!  I never thought it was bad, actually kind of cute at times, but its been amazing to see how my body is transforming rapidly before my eyes with just eliminating a few things from my diet.  I'm so proud of myself for sticking with it every single day.  I haven't caved one (yet).  I know the holidays are going to be tough, especially when I'm not eating out of my own fridge.  I have re-organized our food cabinet to make it easy on myself.  Maybe Ill share a post all about it soon. 

Anyway, back to this outfit!  It's hard to believe I only have one outfit post so far with the adorable fringe purse from Rossio Roos b/c I have literally used it SO much in the past few months.  Its the perfect size to fit my essentials for going out when I don't want to carry a big bag or one that I have to hold.  I have always been a huge fan of over the shoulder bags.  You can get this bag in 3 different colors (without the beaded patch).  I'm in love with the black & dark brown ones. 

In other news... I know I said there would be a new giveaway everyday this week... well I fell a bit behind, so the last 3 will resume tomorrow on Monday!  There are 3 currently live right now on the giveaway page, so make sure to go enter before the end.  Each one lasts one week!

Also, I am LOVING the new blog changes I made yesterday.  Everything is so much easier to find!  Things like this make me one happy girl.  I'm kind of blog design nerd if you haven't noticed.

I think I wear a variation of this outfit pretty often.  You just can't go wrong with a pair of fun bell bottoms, a great tee & your favorite vintage jacket.  This is my first outfit post with my new hair!  Although I have a few already shot from weeks ago that I haven't shared, so you may see my hair flip flop around for a while.  It's starting to really grow on me.  When I look at photos of my ombre I really miss it, but I'm embracing a new look for this season at least, allowing myself to feel comfortable with a new look.  Bottom is beginning to fade and blend into the top a bit more, so its looking better that when I first dyed it.

Last friday I went to go see Fred Eaglesmith with my bestie.  It's been a little tradition of ours.  Weve been seeing him play live for about 13 years now.  This was our 6th time to see him together.  I have to admit, I was a little disappointed for the first time with the show.  They played pretty much the same songs as last time, and told the exact same jokes, which aren't as funny the 3rd or 4th time hearing them.  Just about every show we go to they call someone out, for talking too much, or something.  This time they called out my bestie b/c her phone rang.  It was pretty uncool.  They may think its annoying to hear a phone ring, but when a mother waits months to see your show and can't turn her ringer off b/c she has 3 little ones at home who may need her... Surely it's all in good humor and fun, but after time and time again it just becomes rude, especially to fans who love you and pay to come see you play.  I may just stick to the albums for a while and forget the live shows, sadly.  I really cannot wait for Steve Earle to come back around... that is a show you leave with nothing but a big full heart.

Anyway...I am pretty damn excited it's jacket weather! 

P.S. Don't forget to check out the GIVEAWAY page this week!  A new one just went up this morning :)
