Blogging On My Lunch Break...

Today the weather in Dallas is awful.  Cold.  Windy.  Rainy.  Winter.  One of my favorite blogger buddies (Kassi from The Closet Intervention) used a new word in her post today.  The word - "Craptastic".  I looked it up, means - Crappy weather, fantastic day.  True.  Try Websters if you don't believe me.  Hee Hee

Anyway, it is the perfect word.  The weather really is crappy but I intend to have a fantastic day anyway.

Drop by and check Kassi's blog out if you don't already follow her.  She is great!

Moving on.... Does anyone else do their blogging on their lunch break?  Am I the only one?  Ordinarily I do not go home for lunch but today I decided I did not want to wait to get my outfit post up.  I am so thrilled with how this ensemble looks.  I just didn't want to wait until the end of the work day.  Hope you like it, too?

Well?


LOVE this hounstooth skirt.  You might remember from a previous post that I found this baby at a local resale shop for a mere $7.00!  What do you think of it?

I have already gotten my money's worth and since it has fast become one of my favorites, it will get many more spins to be sure .  Funny how our favorite wardrobe items change from time to time, huh?  

Another of my blogger buddies (Bessie from Bravoe Runway) just posted about how a recent acquisition has made its way to the top of her "favorites" as well.  Bessie puts the "S" in sophistication.  Drop by and check her blog out as well.



This is perhaps the softest sweater that I have ever felt.  As a result, I have it in at least three colors.  Hee Hee

Perfect for a craptastic day, huh?





Perfectly "walkable" and cute.  Hard to think of a better reason not to pull these babies out on a craptastic day!  How cool is that buckle?

Well, lunch is rapidly drawing to a close.  Gotta run.

Hope You Have A Fantastic Day!

  2. I LOVE the word. Although in southern CA we don't have 'crappy weather' days but I intend to use it when we do if my day is fantastic otherwise.
    Great combo. Very Xmas!

  3. Awww thank you for the shout-out, I appreciate it! This outfit is fabulous and mind I ask...what exactly do you define as "cold?" In Chicago it is cold when it is about 30...does it ever get to 30 in Tx? Ugh....

  7. I never thought the word cold and Texas could be side my side but many people have told me it has been dreary there. Nonetheless, the beautiful color of this sweater makes up for it don't you think ;) It is gorgeous and I am still so jealous of that skirt you snagged for $7!

    FYI: I might not be able to leave any comments for a couple of days due to FINALS but I will def. make up for it upon my return. Will miss you though!

  21. I think that craptastic days rae perfect days for busting out one of your favorite outfits. This sweater looks like it would get rid of all of the craptastic feelings, though.

  25. Hahaha!!! I definitely had a different definition for craptastic but yours is SO much better! Love this outfit, talk about classic- you have great taste my friend and have just inspired me to wear my houndstooth skirt that I thrifted too! Seriously, what would I do without you? I would just have to walk around naked I guess...which is pretty much never in style, in the real world that is. Thank you so much for your wonderful blog and your beautiful comments, advice and love on my blog as well- they truly do ALWAYS make my day!!! :):):)

  26. SUPER love houndstooth!!! And for 7 bucks! Truly amazing girl. I follow Kassi and she is so funny. Love her blog. New orleans escaped the bad weather, we just have the cold. But that was a bad system that passed through Dallas. Love your boots too. :D

  32. I didn't know Texans had "cold" in their lexicon - here in DC winters can be pretty brutal below 30 (but those days are rare. We're usually in the high 30s in the winter) - those are the days I put on my UGGs, down jacket, and wool leggings under jeans.

    Where did you get that sweater? It looks gorgeous in this vibrant tomato red color (perfect to alleviate a craptastic day). And the skirt was only $7? Wow- this is very impressive! It looks like it would go for 10 times that price.
