In case anyone can’t get anything to work on here it’s because I bought my domain name and that shuts me down for awhile…Blogger keeps telling me “Error” or that “I am in transition.” I don’t know if you can even see this blog at all, but I thought that all the hundreds of people who wake up and want to read my blog right away (sarcasm) would want to know what was going on.
Hopefully it fixes itself soon because I have a blog waiting to post…
We went to visit the grandparents in Roanoke a couple weeks ago. It was so pretty there. We hiked, had wonderful homemade dinners and lunch over looking the mountains. We relaxed and watched a movie by the fireplace, went to a wine tasting in an orchard, and to a beautiful Roman Catholic mass and Sunday brunch. We also visited Tall Man’s Aunt and Uncle who have chickens! Polly is the brown one. Over-all it was a perfect fall weekend. I don’t think it gets much better than that.
How long has Polyvore been around? I’m new to this world of blogging about pretty things. Through some of the other fab women on this blogging “network” or whatever you want to call it (network sounds so formal) I came across “Your girl next door.” Her Polyvore page is GORGEOUS. So, I thought I would give it a try. Guess what, it’s not as easy as it looks. So I am starting out with a simple collage of things that are so Michelle right now.
It’s a good start. I’ll work on it.
P.S. I know I sound greedy and un-Christmas giving like but … I’d like all of these things please. Thanks fairy blogmother.
So it was the first official fall event of the year… Octoberfest! I couldn’t wait to finally break out some of my new fall wardrobe. An orange-ish dress (that still looks cute in the summer on its own) with a chambray shirt, brown suede boots and the pièce de résistance … cream colored knee high socks that poked out of the top of my boots.
Then the tall man said to me … “Your socks are showing…” and I said “I know, it’s in style”
“Are you sure? That looks funny.” And then he continued to look at my legs with a mocking glare every time we spoke until I couldn’t take it anymore — and took them off.
Sure enough we saw five other fashionistas at Oktoberfest who were strong enough to brave the strange looks they got from unknowing men.
Later in the day a friend text messaged me an image from Express so that I could prove to him it was in style. We all had fun with it … and now my man (who I am still not sure if he likes the look as much as I do ) knows better 🙂
What I think I like so much about this look is how affordable it is. Any outfit you may have already loved from last fall and winter is instantly updated with a less than 10 dollar purchase.
