Friday is here! Made it through another week. Barely. I swear I'm still recovering from Halloween. At least that's the excuse I've made all week as to why there hasn't been a decent meal on the table and why the same load of laundry has been sitting in the dryer for five days surrounded by piles of dirty clothes. And the reason I've been eating so lousy (seriously need to chuck all of that extra candy out the window!). And the reason I was terrible about taking pics and don't have a lot of outfits to share with you today. But I'll share what I've got!
And the first thing I've got is quite a show stopper! Modeling the latest in elf wear...
Sorry, I couldn't resist. You know the funny thing is that I honestly grabbed my camera to take a picture of this after putting it on Halloween morning just out of habit. It has just become part of my routine. That's how committed I am to Fashion Friday people! Then I laughed at myself and took one anyway. Not at all going to be surprised if this outfit doesn't show up on the cover of Vogue soon. Very flattering for all body types and a must have for Fall. ;)
This is a simple jacket shirt (at least that's what I call it) that I bought at Nordstroms (Brass Plum). I just wear a white tank under it. I bought it a couple of years ago when I was going through my green phase.
I bought so many green tops one year. I didn't even notice it until I organized my closet and color coordinated everything. Then I went "WOW. Over half of my closet is green!" And that was the end of my green era. It was fun while it lasted.
Wore it with my favorite first love Sevens.
About to take another pic of the outfit and decided Kole brushing his teeth was more interesting. I can't even tell you how many tooth brushes we've gone through in the past three months. He steals them and wanders off "brushing" his teeth and then we never find them again. I know someday I'm going to be cleaning and hit the mother load of all toothbrushes. He's gotta be stashing them somewhere...
The rest of the week was boring and I wore stuff I've already shared like the top above. It was HOT here this week so we broke out the summer clothes again. San Diego is weird that way. Sometimes October and November are our warmest months.
Which is why I wore this summer top for a fun date on Wednesday night.
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE 2011 BABY!!
Kenny and I realized this was our 5th year going to see SYTYCD live and it has become a tradition I hope never ends.
We went with our fun friends Marc and Ann again this year. This is a picture of all four of us last year.
And here are some pictures of us in front of the arena this year...
My cute friend Ann had on a fun outfit so I made sure to get a full length pic so you could see the clothes! Our husbands were rolling their eyes at us. We were like "ok - now take a close-up, now take a shot that shows our boots, did we look fat? K - take that one again." Kenny usually humors me and my picture taking for a good 2-3 minutes and then he is DONE. With a capital D.
But he was good to let me get a quick shot of the two of us. Kenny knows how much I love this show and always pre-orders our tickets so we can get awesome seats. Then he grins and bears it through picture taking because he knows how much my pictures mean to me.
That is a good man.
One who has been trained well. :)
Pics from past seasons of SYTYCD. This show never disappoints! The dancing was incredible and we all had a great time.
Went to the grocery store today to get stuff to make dinner and instead bought a frozen pizza and the new People Style Watch! I'm ready to kick off the weekend NOW. Looks like some great tips on jeans in this issue. You know I'm all about a pair of good fitting jeans.
And since I'm not sharing anything too fabulous that I wore this week, here's an outfit I love on my sweet Ellie.
Skirt and top are from The Gap. I love this on her because it just seems to fit her personality. And it's not "itchy" so she'll actually wear it. Win win.
And here's Kole a.k.a "Ariel" in his or should I say "her" latest ensemble. This is a long shirt that Ellie wears with leggings. Honestly, about three times a day I turn around and Kole is out of his regular clothes and wearing one of Ellie's shirts. I can't help but laugh out loud every time he waddles in the room in something like this!
Ellie and her dress up doll. The two of them are pretty tight. And I'm sure they will be. Right up until Kole grows up and sees these pictures. :)
But for now, Ariel doesn't seem to mind one bit.
Have a great weekend everyone!
