Outfit Post: Brownie

I love brownies. Any kind, but it must have some sort of gooey chocolateness. It must be messy – either crumbly or sticky.

Today’s outfit reminds me of a less messy brownie. Maybe a blondie mixed with a brownie? I don’t know, I’m reaching here.

Anyway, I’ve said before that I’m not big into wearing black. Most of my dark clothes are brown, navy, or gray. I’m trying to branch out and embrace wearing black, but I’m still not sure it’s all that flattering on me.

Oh, and I started reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. READ THIS BOOK. It’s a quiet book, but the characters shine brightly, and the story is heart-tugging.

Double oh – I have a new business proposal. You know what that means, don’t you? I’m about to become obsessed 😀

The Outfit:

Very, very, very old Banana Republic sweater dress with cowl neck.

Banana Republic leather belt

Wolford brown tights in 50

Burberry tweed handbag

Repetto tall boots

Convertible necklace from Covet, San Francisco

Chandelier earrings in hot pink

One spooky black cat named TT

The Schedule:

7:30am – hurry to Reston to bring Bug his driver’s license and wallet. He took my car in for maintenance and forgot he needed to rent a car.

9am – miss my group fitness class and decide to go back to bed. Being back on my meds is making me exhausted and drugged up.

12pm – Bug calls to say he’s on his way home. Do I want to grab lunch? Hurry up and shower.

12:30pm – Head to Panera with Bug for a quick bite before he has to leave for an appointment. Guess what I ate? A BROWNIE. Surprise.

1pm -2:30pm – Work

3:00pm – first wave of children arrive home. Have snacks and start homework.

4:00 – Pudge arrives home.

5:00 – start dinner (if I’m cooking. We ended up eating out last night and have tons of left overs).

6:30 – Bug gets home

7:30 – Boys to bed

8-11 – Write a little and TV time.

Outfit post: black and navy

It’s gloomy and a little rainy in Northern Virginia today. Have I told you that I’m not a fan of East Coast seasons? Give me my San Francisco Dry season and Rainy season with healthy doses of over-the-Golden-Gate-Bridge-escape-the-fog trips, and I’m happy. Here, there is no escaping crappy weather – it follows you everywhere 😦

Anyway, in today’s outfit post (I know, I know, I’ve been very lazy about these), I’m wearing things that are completely impractical in the drizzle – leather and suede.

blue and black jacket

Sorry it’s so blurry – my normal photographers had to go to school, leaving me with just my mirror and iPhone.

The Outfit:

Levi’s demi curve (my favorite jeans and I’ve tried them all. Joe’s come in second for me, but Levi’s are the best).

Navy tweed with black leather arms jacket. I like the edginess of this one with the zippers.

Black suede 5″ booties. I snagged these at Target! Total win!


The Schedule:

8am – personal training. Ab and ass work today. Fun stuff.

10am – manicure

12pm – therapy (gotta get all that angst out somewhere other than the page sometimes)

2pm – The Fox’s dentist appointment

3:45pm – Pick The Colonel up from Hip Hop class

5:15-6:15pm – Pudge has lacrosse

6:45pm – Dinner (Veggie fried rice tonight – yum!)

7:30pm – Boys in bed

8:00pm – hopefully a little writing.
