i am feeling a teeny tiny bit cool right now


i just read sass' post on the fall trends, and i have most of them. i bought the above boots and cannot wait to bust them out with my skinny jeans, plaid fitted top and big turquoise cuff bracelet and big hoops.

the reason sass' post made me feel so cool is sass is 22.

and is really pretty.

all i need to be even cooler/hipper is a faux fur vest. that will be my new hunt.

but don't be fooled, my fall wardrobe is mostly black yoga pants, running shoes and a long sleeved "life is good" tee shirt with a patagonia fleece vest on top. and sunglasses on my head instead of any cute hair accessory.

i'm
bringing sexy back.

let's move on to nienie's appearance on oprah.
amazing. just amazing. i thought she looked just precious. loved her outfit. christian is way hot, pictures on the blog don't do him justice. the love they have for one another is amazing.

i love her and am 100% inspired by her. this morning after tess had a humongous temper tantrum over me not giving her the sippy cup she wanted, instead of getting frustrated, i just laughed. i am lucky. i am blessed.

god gave me two crazy, quirky kids to take care of. and i get to take care of them and hold them pain free.

nienie
doesn't.

the interview most definitely made me stop and think. i needed that.

so if you haven't watched it, i recommend it.

last but not least, the office wedding tonight.

there are no words.

Sass is adorable. Love her.

And, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who lives in yoga pants. Even if my ensembles do have a liberal vibe to them.

Sass is the shizot! Pretty B... :)

I live in sweat suits; Old Navy, Express or Agaci'... cheap but cute!

I am with you, 100%, after watching Nie; so amazing. We are truly blessed. She is truly an inspiration to us all.

You have always been cool in my world...even without boots! I just bought Sydney a couple of those Ugg knockoffs at Target today. She wanted heals and we had to have the you can't wear heals because you are NINE conversation. She got over it and we bought Snow White!

Okay, I had to go check out Sass's post and see how behind I am on my wardrobe requirements. Oh my god...I am soooooooooooo behind and so uncool these days! Being pregnant last fall/winter means I have NOTHING to wear this season!! Hmmm...is that because I haven't been shopping or because I still need to lose about 15 lbs. and REFUSE to buy the next size up?!??! So depressing.

Okay I need to check out your 2 recommendations, but I wanted to tell you, I will be watching Jim and Pam tonight... it is the only thing on tv that I can't miss!
Smiles!

Love those boots! Will look great with skinny jeans.
I missed the Oprah show. So mad about that. I hope to catch it tonight!

loved Nie Nie on Oprah. I was just so thankful to be able to make 3 pb and j sandwiches today. Yes, it gives you a new outlook.

now I'm going straight to Sass for some fashion tips from a 22 year old! I need it!

Well well well, I wish I had something sassy to say, but I'm mostly impressed that you are so in tune with your inner fashionista. I would say outer, but you never have any pics of yourself.
Thanks for the love, lova! And go get your ass into a fur vest!
