Years ago, I used to be a Halloween fanatic. I made all the boys costumes, carved pumpkins, meticulously cut out construction paper rats and decorated the house.
Now, we’re lucky the boys have costumes. That’s how lame I am. At least we have pumpkins (uncarved) in front of the house.
Anyway, today I wanted to feel Halloween-ish without wearing a giant pumpkin shirt.
Here’s what I came up with:
Black leggings with leather patches – JCrew
Chiffon shell – Banana Republic
Orange peacoat – Old, Old very old GAP
Shoes – Anthropologie
8am – 9am – Personal training
10:30 – 1pm – Doctor’s visit for pre-op. I’m having my thyroid unexpectedly removed next week (was supposed to happen in January, so everything is being accelerated).
1:30-3:00 – NAP
3:30 – 4:30 – Attempt to carve a pumpkin. It comes out like a sad panda.
6pm – Trick or TREAT!
Knowing I had to spend a good portion of my day at the doctor’s office motivated me to try to find something fun and cheery to wear today. And what’s more fun than a hot pink fluted skirt and sassy stockings?
My hair is a mess from having to take my shirt on and off a few times, but I think the outfit still looks right.
Full outfit with pumpkins!
Shirt: Banana Republic petites textured pullover
Skirt: Banana Republic petites in hot pink.
Boots: TARGET 😀
Scarf: Missoni knit
8:30 – 2:30 – Doctor’s office. YUCK.
2:30 – 5 – answer email, work, catch-up on stuff
5pm – make dinner
6pm – dinner
7:30pm – boys to bed
7:30 – 9pm – write
9-11pm – visit with Bug
This outfit is actually from Tuesday. I forgot to post it, but I think it was a winner.
I wanted to mix and match the more expensive things I owned with cheaper stuff. I like the outcome.
I love this scarf. Bug surprised me with it while we were in Nice this summer. I’ve always wanted an Hermes scarf, and this one is so beautiful.
Navy asymetrical sweater tucked in – GAP
Light camel wool skirt – JCrew
Navy alligator skinny belt – JCrew
Navy stockings – Wolford
Marc Jacobs small Fulton handbag in Navy
Boots – Repetto
I can’t remember what I did Tuesday. Isn’t that sad? I think I may have gone to my friend’s house and taken the oldest boy to lacrosse. Other than that, it’s a blur.
But today I cleaned the house (still no house cleaner since the last one we fired) and wrote at Panera for a while. Rather productive day. Now I’m going to read a little of The Book Thief.
