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!

Anyhoo.

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.  =)

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!!

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. :)
