I wasn't too festive for Halloween. In fact, I even forgot to wear my special Halloween pumpkin socks! We spent the morning at an outdoor event (with wind and misting rain), and then went to visit friends and watch movies late into the night. It wasn't terribly cold out, so I just wore my chunky sweater.

This also marks the debut of my corduroy pants. They're the same style as my favorite Old Navy jeans ("Sweetheart"), and they're so comfortable!
It must have been Pink Sweater Day at work today because there were about five of us on my floor that were wearing them. Funny how things like that always happen.

I realized as I walked into the office that I forgot to put on my watch this morning. Not that I ever look at it during the day, but of course since I didn't have it on, I kept trying to check the time.
I was very excited to wear my other new pair of shoes today! I thought they might be uncomfortable, but they're actually really comfy. I think because the opening is cut a little lower, they don't hit me right at the ball of my foot like a lot of shoes do. Oh, and I got compliments on them, too!

I just got this sweater yesterday (Bass is having a Buy 1, Get 2 Free sale!). It is so soft and snuggly and warm! My office has been freezing this fall, and I had to go to a big meeting in a room that was even colder, so it's a good thing I wore this!

Big things happening at work today, so I wanted to look professional. Somehow, professional = collared shirt to me...

Yes, that is another one of those sweaters with the collar and cuffs built-in. Luckily I looked semi-cute, because some co-workers and I had a little impromptu photoshoot around the office in the afternoon.
It was such a beautiful day today! I wore a jacket in the morning, but went out several times during the day and didn't need it.

I went to the mall tonight to look for some of the things Kimberly recommended for me. I actually liked a lot of the items she suggested, and there were some others I wasn't sure about but thought I would check in person. So here's how it turned out:
Forever 21: Kimberly recommended this 3/4 sleeve faux leather jacket, which I actually really liked in the photo. But in person, the leather was really crinkly looking, not smooth. Also, they only had smalls in the store. I would still get a 3/4 sleeve jacket. She also recommended a knit jacket that was sold out, but found a similar one. I'm not sure if I saw this exact one in the store, or another one (there were lots of similar belted knit jackets), but it seemed pretty bulky in person. I also found the braided pearl necklace, which was not bad, but significantly shorter than I like to wear my necklaces. My husband was also giving me a hard time about it. So I again passed.
Old Navy: I found the cowl neck sweater Kimberly suggested. I liked in the picture, but in person it is huge. I tried on a small, which was still enormous, and it just did not look good. I saw the patterned scarf, too - again, looked nice in the picture, but the quality just didn't seem good in person.
On my way out to do some errands. Unfortunately, some bizarre car trouble kept me from making all the stops I wanted - like going to the mall to pick up some of the things Kimberly recommended for me. Yes, my Fab Finds Under $50 Make the Most of Your Closet consultation was posted!

I was at a charity event for the day that involved walking around to different shops in a town and eating chocolate at every stop (nearly thirty!). We were walking, indoors, outdoors, in the wind, in the sun... so this sweater was the perfect thing to wear!

On Saturday I donated six big bags of clothes to Goodwill. To celebrate, I bought one new sweater. I've been looking for a tan sweater for a while, and it was on sale! I was so excited to wear it to work, I was almost disappointed to have had Monday off.

My husband saved me from wearing a navy blue shirt, and suggested the turquoise instead. Good choice!
You might also notice I'm standing in front of some different stuff. In addition to cleaning out clothes, I also rearranged my room this weekend! I'm very pleased with how it turned out, and now I have some new angles to take pictures in there!
Remember how I was looking forward to the cooler weather? I got my wish - it is cold all of a sudden. But that means it's the perfect weather to wear these quilted suede shoes. They are so comfy, it feels like I'm wearing slippers!

Please disregard the bags behind me, it's those clothes I packed up to donate, still haven't gotten to doing that yet...
