due to finally having some time off with DH. He's been working bunches of repeat 15 day stretches with lots of doubles, especially on the weekends (when I have off) so we are really ready to have 5 days off together! YAY! Wanted to post this before we start digging in to all the work we plan on getting done.

Outfit #1 - This Uniqlo top is a real winner and I am considering duplicating. I love the fit and drape and length and I guess I would call it an essential. I have a three other colors ordered and on the way thinking they will work with various skirts, jeans and shorts. It's the first wearing of the shoes. I purchased them in black last year and soon after (after a few wears and after hearing Angie's plan of wearing the luggage color with her white flares) I wished I had gotten that color but they were out of my size (10). But in January I just happened to check the Sole Society website and there they were on clearance and they had one pair in my size! SCORE! Usually I wear black shoes with this skirt (this is the one skirt from my summer skirt challenge that I was waiting for fall to test) and really liked it with the cognac. Then I realized that my coffee bean necklace picked up the colors in the skirt and shoes perfectly. (I've had this necklace for prob 25 years and wear it every once in awhile. It is made out of coffee beans and seeds!)

#2 - Not sure about this orphaned (actually never worn) topper thingy. Got it at Chicos years ago and never felt like I could wear it. Throughout the day wore it draping down, folded over, etc. What do you think? I was pleased with how well the Clarks Artisan Coral/Tan heeled sandals go with the patterned jeans but they hurt my feet so much I think they have to go.

#3 - I wish I would have gotten the shoes into the picture better! I've attached the find so you can see them. They are so much better in person. The trim is bright white which doesn't show in the stock photo.

As always, comment, critique and suggest away!
