crazy pants

Things that happened over the weekend- the Bengals won(good), the Reds won and clinched the division championship(better), and the first day of fall(cue angels singing!).

 It's officially fall- hellz to the yeah!! I actually wore boots this weekend...and a scarf! Shut. The. Front. Door! I decided to celebrate the return of temperatures for normal people by breaking out my crazy pants. Whenever I clad my lower half in animal print, I try to tame it a little. I dressed down the jeans with a denim shirt and flats to keep the Peg Bundy effect to a minimum. 

How was your weekend? Are you having fall-like temperatures yet?

driven to distraction

To paraphrase Carrie Bradshaw, I've been cheating on fashion with furniture flowers.

Between proposal writing, meeting new clients, doing the work, all the while trying to be a decent wife and mother, the blog has taken a backseat. I'm trying to put together a  posting schedule that works. I'll be back soon:)

vintage crop

Summer saturation- the point where you are sick to death of the heat, humidity and every single summer dress you own. You start thinking about making soups for dinner, evening walks that don't include coming home drenched in sweat, Octoberfest, and dressing in layers! Just like everyone else, I'm a tad tired of summer but fall means winter quickly follows and I HATE winter! 

I'm not even sure when the photo was taken(2 weeks ago?) but since the I spent the last week working in cutoffs and tank tops and I have a sneaking suspicion that that the two events I'm prepping this weekend will see me in something equally unfashionable, I thought I'd share a pic of me looking kinda pulled together(!). 

Have a good week:)
