Fashion Show

I think it has been almost 2 years since I first participated in WIWW!

Though I thoroughly enjoy reading much more often than that!

To be honest, I was actually planning on participating last week.

Last week, well...I had myself a little moment. I wrote about it here.

I also happened upon a wonderful blog - Putting Me Together - and was completely inspired. I went shopping ...

okay, this post is being interrupted by an unexpected EARTHQUAKE! No Kidding! No phones but Facebook is on, so my friends and I are all chatting up a storm, HaHaHa. I thought a plane was crashing outside our house!


Well there's really nothing witty for me to write that can top an earthquake, so here's my new outfit. Let me also add that I feel incredibly nervous sharing this, but nobody is going to say anything mean, right? 'Cause if you are, please refer to the post above, and just, don't.  =)

I took the plunge and went for RED pants.

I {heart} them!
Perfect for puppy walks- ha, he looks a tad belligerent there!
I actually wore black shoes when no one was around to take my picture...however, they don't seem to fit me anymore- they kept slipping off! What?!? It was quite embarrassing while walking downtown this morning! I'm sure I disguised it well by pretending to admire the colorful leaves, little pebbles, that blade of grass every time I had to stop and adjust my feet inside my shoes. Which was literally every third step, ha! Yikes! Yeah, be jealous.  =)
 all 3 pieces from my little shopping spree at TJ Maxx  shoes: Naturalizer necklace: street-vendor-turned-amiga en Gautemala

I got lots of compliments about this outfit! And I felt so fun & happy wearing the bright red pants, which is kind of the point in the first place, right?

This was all I could manage with the self-portraits...not so great!

I had my oldest son Ethan snap a few pics for me- not bad!

I think a chunky silver bracelet would look nice...I do have a birthday coming up... ;)

**I haven't been able to say goodbye to my favorite summer sandals just yet, so I slip them on during my morning school drop-offs- I'd just returned from the first one here. Then it was funky-shoe time.**
Close up of the cute jacket ruffles- I will admit that this is a total inspiration piece because I do need to lose about 5 pounds before it fits really well. I'm okay with that! And then I will give myself a new goal!
See what I mean about crazy weather? (Look closely at the background in the pics...) Sun, rain, sun, major wind, rain, earthquake...crazy!

I must be feeling brave. This is from last week~
it was raining all morning
pics inside weren't working

Caleb to the rescue!
He did a great job!

Cardi open - I am very self-conscious about my girls
they seem to enter the room about a yard before I do
I'd prefer to enter together

Do you think I can get away with the cardigan buttoned in the center, or should I leave it open?

linking up with this wonderful party

So in love with red pants. I keep looking for a pair of my own.

You look so cute! I love my red pants too!!

CC said...

You look great in your red pants! I am wearing a pair today too! ;)
And I have the same issue with my girls - I have to say the cardi in the second look is better open. When it is closed it actually emphasizes the bosom area. :) Open, it looks really great - the focus leads up to your pretty face rather than the emphasis being on the bust. :)
