Awkward and Awesome Friday

Happy Friday!
Here's to an awesome weekend with very little awkwardness involved.
  • When things on your iPhone start disappearing and you don't know where they went.
  • Whipping up something in the kitchen you have made a million times before and it doesn't turn out right.
  • When the hostess at a restaurant tries to sit you with a group that are clearly NOT "your people".
  • Accidentally hitting your coffee mug on the counter and the handle completely breaks off.
  • Driving home with all of the windows down and hoping you make it before you puke in the car.
  • Finding a new walking trail in the woods near your house.
  • Great mail days with packages piled at your door.
  • Husband bringing you home a fancy box of chocolates.
  • Late night grocery store run in your pajama pants and Uggs and you don't even care.
  • Ginger Ale and sleep when you have a stomach virus.
Going outside my box and wearing dark, neutral colors.
  I do love black and gray together and decided to give it a try. 
 I kept everything very simple for an easy going casual look.

I would love to hear about your awkward or awesome moments in the comments!

Have You Heard About Chaos NY?

I want to introduce you to a fun company called Chaos NY.
CHAOS NY is all about-
eclectic, stylish and affordable clothes for women over 50. 
They  carry designs from across the globe and their mission is to provide colorful, chic, and unique looks.
 The super nice folks at Chaos sent me this funky tunic.
I love the texture, pattern and flow.
I chose to go a bit bold with my look today.
 I topped this cute tunic over a chambray shirt and added 
chunky fun jewelry to create the bold look.
I wore red skinny jeans to add to the boldness.
Chaos NY, not only has fun, unique clothing ~ 
they also have one-of-a-kind jewelry and home goods.
I think you will get a smile on your face 
as you browse their website.
So don't hesitate to go check them out here.

Chaos NY provided this tunic, but all opinions are my own.

Stripes + Plaid

Happy Monday all!
I cannot take credit for my outfit today.
I confess that I simply stole this look from someone else!
Have you ever been scrolling through blogs
 and come across and outfit you just knew you had to re-create?  
That's what happened to me when I found this look on the
I love the mix of stripes and plaid along
 with the mix of black and brown.
  So fall, so fun and so comfortable
 all at the same time.
You know I am not a fan of "leggings as pants",
 but that is not what is happening here. 
 My top is a tunic and covers my bum,
 so there is no "leggings as pants"
 horror going on here.  

A big thanks to Jacqueline for such a great look!!!

Are you careful about how you wear your leggings?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Hello all you cool cats out there!
I hope you are having some lovely sweater weather and have a fun weekend planned.
  • The teeny tiny little old lady trying to maneuver here 1980's circa Lincoln Town Car around the parking lot.
  • When my neighbor across the street decided it would be a good idea to run his giant cement saw at 7:30 in the morning to cut up his driveway.
  • Not just butt dialing someone; butt FaceTiming someone.
  • When someone remembers you, but you don't remember them.
  • Son1 and I trying to move a couch.  Just think the infamous Friends episode...pivot, pivot, pivot.
  • Speaking of Friends- did you know that on New Year's Day it will be available on Netflix!
  • When you didn't factor in really bad traffic, but you made it on time anyway.
  • Remembering a password you haven't used in a very long time.
  • Not only is my cute little lemon tree still alive, but the lemons are beginning to turn from green to yellow.
  • Son2 turns 21 on Saturday!!!  Let the celebration begin.
I have been loving getting out the scarves
 and pairing them with lightweight sweaters. 
 This is just a very easy, casual look
 with interest created with pattern and texture.
  I added pops of pink just to throw in a little color.

Let's hear about any awkward or awesome moments you had this week
 in the comment section.

My post today somehow disappeared around 2:00 pm.
I am not sure what happened or where out in cyberspace it actually went.
I was talking about eyewear.
Wearing glasses doesn't mean you have to look
 frumpy or past your age.
These cute glasses are from,
 you can find them here.
They also have a great selection on sunnies as well. 
 I really like the fact that I can actually see
 while wearing sunglasses.
  These can be found here.
Whatever your eyewear needs are,
 I am sure you can find what you are looking for at
They have a nice variety and they ship fast as well.

This eyewear was provided by,
 but all opinions are my own.
