When I pulled this sweater out of the closet this morning, I thought it was a different one. (Why yes, I do have 3-4 black v-neck sweaters.) When I took it off tonight, I was surprised to see that it was one I'd actually been considering donating! Not anymore - still fits fine!

I was struggling with what to wear for Thanksgiving, because we were actually going to two dinners: one at a nice restaurant, and one at a home. So I couldn't dress too casually, but I also wanted to be comfortable because there was a lot of food to be eaten! This outfit worked out perfectly, and I was excited to break out the new tunic sweater I got specifically to wear with these jeggings. It's not my usual look, so I was a little uncomfortable at first, but I think it turned out cute!

It seems counter-intuitive, but jeggings are so comfy. I almost felt like I was cheating because it's more like wearing yoga pants than jeans. (But these Mossimo ones are really denim and very jeans-like.)
Today was my last day in the office for the week, hooray! Also, I had an actual, physical meeting to go to (not a teleconference) for once, but it was pretty low-key because I was just meeting a former co-worker to help her with something. It was nice to get away from my desk for a bit, at least.

One more workday (from home) and then four-day holiday weekend, hooray!
I've been super excited to wear these new shoes ever since they arrived. I was actually going to save them for something else later this week, but wore them today since I was going to see a bunch of coworkers I don't usually see. And they got compliments!

I love how well they go with my awesome Target necklace, too. Just slightly edgy... And no, the purple nail polish + purple sweater was not intentional at all, but hey, nothing wrong with coordinating!
We went out for lunch at work today and I didn't want to mess with a coat, so I just wore this big heavy sweater. However, we went to a new burger restaurant and I ended up smelling like burgers and fries all afternoon, so I had to change for when I went out tonight.

And yes, my nail polish does match that tank top. Not my usual style, but teal nail polish is kind of fun!
I didn't really have a reason to dress up today... and then it turned out that I had to go to this meeting and I was like, "Phew, good thing I wore a nice shirt!" ...and then it turned out that the meeting was just over the phone, so once again, it didn't matter what the heck I wore. Haha, oh well.

This is the appearance on this blog of the first of four (whoops - yes, four) new pairs of Payless shoes I ordered online. They were BOGO! I was nervous to get them online because Payless sizing is so wonky, but I was able to try on a couple of them in the store (they just didn't have the size/color I wanted), and one is the same as a pair I already have in another color so I could judge how they would run. FYI: their zoe&zac line in general run about half a size too large.
My husband and I went to his friend's wedding tonight. I'd been kind of worrying about what to wear, but in the end I went with this dress, which I'd worn to a wedding earlier this year, paired with a cardigan for warmth. Luckily, the whole thing was indoors in this mansion. I did bring warm boots to wear in the car though!
I need more pants like these - they are soft, stretchy, and generally flattering. In the side view you can see they have a little stitching detail down the outside of each leg. I will have to be on the lookout...

Is it possible my feet grew over the summer? These shoes were almost too big on me last fall, today my toes were at the tips of the shoes and I got a blister on the back of one of my heels. That's the second pair of shoes now that fit fine last year and is too small this year. Hmm..!
I wore a scarf to work! I have so many scarves and I never wear them because I feel like it'll bother me around my neck all day, but guess what - it didn't! In fact, it was nice, because I went to a meeting in our auditorium which is always freezing cold, and I had some extra warmth.

What is going on with my legs in this picture?! I don't know, but this was actually the better of the two pictures I took this morning...
