Please excuse the blurry cell phone pics. I had my daughter snap these photos “just in-case”.
If you’re new around here or haven’t visited in a while, October is a month of Cheap Tricks. We’re focusing on Living for Less and saving money in creative ways, but I felt like I needed a little break from the money talk.
Plus, October is also Breast Care Awareness month. I have two aunts who fought breast cancer and won. I’m so thankful they are cancer-free now!
In honor of Breast Care Awareness, J.Reneé asked me to tell you about how they are donating 10% of their October proceeds from jrenee.com to breast cancer research. If you are in the market for a new pair of shoes or just want to shop in support of breast cancer research, visit J.Reneé and know that part of your purchase will go to a good cause. Plus you’ll have a cute new pair of shoes. Win-Win!
We went to a fundraiser event this past weekend and had fun getting all dressed up. I bought this dress a year ago for well under $20 dollars and I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to wear it. I can’t wait to wear it again! I’m so glad I bought it when I saw it.
This is my lazy day look. It’s ridiculously comfortable too. There’s nothing like an over-sized sweater to make me feel all warm and cozy.
My daughter is such a Diva. She’s fun to photograph. It’s like she was born to pose. Very much unlike her mama.
She told to strike a Diva pose and this next photo is what she got.
I don’t do Diva well.
Yup. I’m a Dork with a capital “D”.
This outfit was for 80’s Day in school.
She rocks the 80’s, doesn’t she.
This picture made me realize how BAD cropped pants look on me. I should never, ever wear them. In fact, I should just give those jeans away. I’ve worn them for two summers and I think that’s long enough. They make me look really short. Compared to the photo in the other jeans where my legs actually look long or at least long-ish.
So, the other day I talked about being on a diet and the results I’ve had so far. I even asked if you wanted to join me in the Christmas Crunch Challenge. I hope your silence means you’re considering it.
Anyway, I don’t actually have gym clothes or good sneakers. That’s bad, right? I know it is, especially since I twisted my ankle while running the other day. I need to buy sneakers.
It’s my third year with those Target boots. I almost have two holes worn in the sides of one foot. I hope they make it through this winter.
I realize I needed to tuck my shirt in or something. I didn’t really care though. I wanted to be comfortable and I was!
This is what I wear when no one is looking. Shhhh…..don’t tell.
What is your favorite thing about fall outfits?
Do you love the boots, the jackets, the scarves???
