Awkward and Awesome Friday

Happy Friday Ya'll!
I hope you had an awesome week.
 Awkward:
  • When you place an order online and you don't realize you already have items in your cart from when you were "pretend" shopping and those get ordered as well.
  • When a pink sharpie gets left open on your sheets and you come to bed to a giant ink stain in the middle of the bed.
  • You know you need coffee in the morning when you completely forget to put the mug under the Keurig and it takes you a few seconds to realize it.
  • Opening the glass doors on the milk aisle and hear someone calling your name.  Finally you realize the guy outside the doors is calling to the guy behind the doors stocking the milk.
  • When you can't find the can of Static Guard from last winter, so you wipe yourself and your clothes down with a dryer sheet and you smell like a dryer sheet for the rest of the day.
 
Awesome:
  • Getting to the new Outlet Mall before the crowds explode next week.
  • Son2 coming home a day earlier than expected for Thanksgiving.
  • Finally getting something free from your loyalty card.
  • When you have a conversation about your home town with the dude behind the fish counter at the grocery store.
  • When there are enough left overs in the fridge that you don't have to cook dinner.
 
 So, I am wearing my favorite color combo again here.
  I just can't get enough of it.
Have you tried this pink, burgundy and leopard combo yet??  

Let's hear about your awkward and awesome moments in the comments.

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

Good Wednesday to you all!
I hope everyone is keeping warm and dry wherever you are.
Here is an easy look when it is wet and cold out.  
You really don't want to get out of those pj's,
 so throw on some skinny jeans and a cozy, comfy tunic.
Wrap yourself with some color and you are ready to face the day.
Pops of bold color with black and gray can turn a ho hum outfit
 into a wow outfit.
Even when you rather be in bed with a blanket and a book.

Do you like bold color or would you keep this outfit neutral?

Hello Winter

It's seems that Mr. Winter has finally come to visit!
No snow here, but cold temperatures have come calling.
One of my new favorite color combos is pink and burgundy. 
 It's very retro,
 a total throw back from the 50's.
Throw in some windowpane print and leopard
 and you are no longer in the 50's,
 but smack in the middle of 2014!
You know that saying..."everything old is new again".

Pattern mixing, great colors and cold weather...
winter you and I are off to a great start.

What is your new favorite color combo these days?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Hello Friday!
This week has been pretty awesome around here.
I hope your week has been as well.
 Awkward:
  • Getting into an old-fashioned bike wreck...road rash and all.
  • Looking out at the ocean and seeing a pod of pelicans, knowing they are pelicans but yelling out to your friends, "Look at all of the penguins."
  • Realizing in the middle of a game of Boggle how much you suck at this game.
  • When the snap on your pants won't stay snapped and you don't know if the reason is that the snap is broken or you just don't fit in the pants anymore.
  • Hiking in the quiet, majestic woods of Black Mountain and suddenly you see a naked couple in the woods frolicking in the mountain stream.  The dude turns and gives you a nice juicy shot of his frontal region!
 
 Awesome:
  • Going on a retreat with 8 friends to The Cove in Asheville, NC.
  • Getting to hear the anointed Lisa Harper speak for an entire day.
  • Stumbling upon a crazily decorated Christmas tree in the middle of the woods and the sign asks that you add an ornament.
  • Laughing so hard that your cheeks and belly hurt.
  • FRIENDS
 
 A little hiking outfit on the blog today. 
 Honestly, the weather warmed up and most of this look
 was gone by the end of the hike. 
 At least I started the day looking cute!

Let's hear about any awkward or awesome moments you had this week.

Red and Brown

Today I am talking red and brown.
Two colors that don't get a lot of play together,
but actually compliment each other nicely.
I must be on a stripe kick because
 my last 4 posts have me wearing stripes!
I rarely wear this color combo, but I should give it more play.  
It's a little less harsh than the red and black combo 
that we all know and love. 
 I think the colors work well with each other,
 especially if you have a red that has brown or blue
 undertones. 
I will tell you that I first had on tights with this look,
 but it just wasn't working. 
 So bare legs it is!
I went with calf boots as not to chop myself up too much. 
 You know Tim Gunn's rule of 1/3's!

Do you wear red and brown together often?
