I hate starting Fall Fashion week off on this foot, all haggard and lacking of much thought, but I guess this is real talk. We've had a long weekend here. Saturday we ran Jack around the park and I attended Black Cherry Burlesque's Halloween show downtown where I proceeded to take in gimlets and burlesque magic (seriously, everybody needs to go to at least one in their life). Sunday we drove 2 hours out to Willcox to go pumpkin picking with some of Greg's co-workers and later that afternoon it was off to the in-laws for his grandmother's birthday, something we were all looking forward to and are very grateful for (she has cancer and has decided, after last year's rounds of chemo, that she won't be doing anymore treatments). Our time is never guaranteed, but thankful for it we are.
So! Today's outfit is purely for comfort and a house cleanin', laundry doing, resume updating, tea sippin', horror movie watchin', pumpkin' carvin' day. It's raining outside as well, so there's that.
*Here you can see the little tears in the upholstery on Bets (short for Betty, yes, I'm a Mad Men fiend, a FIEND I SAY!). We found her by the dump and just couldn't let her sit there so we adopted her and one day, new upholstery will be in the works.
Sweater- Vintage Dior, stolen from my dad's closet in high school. He actually bought it for my mom and she wore it a lot when she was pregnant with me. This is one of my most beloved pieces of clothing and it's cashmere so it's like being wrapped up in unicorn wishes and kissed by the backs of baby rabbit ears.
Shorts- Buffalo Exchange
Mukluks- Urban Outfitters
Limp hair, tired eyes(I was tossing and turning ALL night), oil production out the yang and STILL stuck on lipstick (that stuff really does outlast)- Three pinot grigios, two glasses of champagne and three gimlets. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Jack wears- Huggies (he had just woken up).
Here's some pics of the aforementioned pumpkin picking spree. Our stupid camera lens was dirty and I couldn't tell from all the sun. So pardon the crappy quality.
If today's outfit were a song (sorry about the stupid 3 sec. sound clip the precedes the song, I didn't realize it was there until I posted it.)-
