The Week In Review

This week we made some fantastic (and surprisingly strong) margaritas from a recipe we got from the engineers parents. There were some walks in the bayou, a Jenga tower so tall I couldn't fit it all in frame, and we went for a swim. Also for some reason my office at work now feels like an igloo. All and all it was a pretty good week. 

Have a great weekend! Also just for fun Draw A Stickman!

Style Me Pretty: A Conundrum

This is my dress for the rehearsal dinner. The photos aren't great because they were taken in the dressing room by my mum. Now I am having trouble deciding on accessories and a hair style. Normally I don't worry so much about the hair, but hey its the rehearsal dinner for my wedding so I want to jazz it up. So, I'm throwing it out there.... does anyone have suggestions for hair, make up, accessories? If so I would love to hear about them!

Here is what I came up with on Polyvore.
Thanks from the clueless bride to be.

Style Me Pretty

Its a ghost! Oh wait that is just me. Being pale, and semi-transparent. 

Floral skirt is from The Pink Hanger and shirt is from Gap. I've been sitting on these pictures for a few days, but still can't come up with a darn thing to say. So instead I will present you with Perpetual Kid. This a website I have just recently discovered. It is awesome. As evidence I present:

That is a 3 pound gummy worm!

Candy not your thing? How about some bacon.... 

.... bandages that is. 

So, in conclusion if you are as much of a kid as I am you will thoroughly enjoy this site. Have a great day!

If I had a kid this would definitely happen at Halloween! Baby Dracula

The maxi skirt came from the always lovely Pink Hanger, and I've been wearing it around all summer. This time around I tried to dress it down for a more casual day, and I would like to think that I was successful. The Engineer (adopted bloggy name for B) and I went to Disney world and Universal studios last year just before we got engaged, and before we left we picked up these styling shirts that say Thing 1 and Thing 2. I really like them because when we stand together it makes my favorite number (yes I still have a favorite number and it is 12).

On a completely unrelated note, The Engineer and I are getting married in exactly one month. I can't believe it is so close, and I'm unbelievably excited to marry my best friend. Have a happy Thursday lovelies!

Pick of The Day

I don't know about you people, but I am having a major obsession with wrap coats/jackets/capes...whatever you want to call them.

My current favorite is Rachel Zoe's, Ali Wrap Cape featured below.  What. A. Gem!  You have no idea how bad I am wanting this cape!!!!

I am also obsessed with the rest of Rachel Zoe's new collection.  Her lookbook can be viewed here.

Another love of mine is the Ann Taylor, Leather Trimmed Wrap seen below.  I see this being a major staple in my fall/winter wardrobe!

One more before I go...

This adorable BB Dakota "Josie" Wrap Coat is also a winner in my book.  I just LOVE the hood featured on the coat!  Plus, it's a great alternative to Rachel Zoe's Ali Wrap Cape if you are looking to save a few dollars.

Let's Celebrate

HIMYM/NPH Style: Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog...

Style Me Pretty

Shoes: Marshall's (GoMax)
Tank: Target
Shirt: Urban Outfitters 
Shorts: Khol's 

So while it may look like fall it feels like hades outside. Some women glisten with a glamorous sheen, but not I. I don't think it would have been so bad if I hadn't had to chase down the boy. He decided that the POISONOUS SNAKE INFESTED bayou would be fun to swim in! I had to chase the now smelly little dude down and re-leash him. 

I'm trying to complete the No pony tail challenge set by miss Natalia of Ma Nouvelle Mode. This is my double braided bun, and I'm starting off strong. I'm excited to try out no pony tail for the week. It might be hard early in the morning when I'm trying to get to work, but I'm ready!

p.s. He still looked irresistibly cute.

Pick of the Day

Moving into fall...
This is lovely little blazer that I could see myself rocking this fall. Now if only the weather would get below 100 here in Texas I could wear tweed. Then if we could get some rain it would be perfect.

Even though it is only Thursday my brain seems to think it is Friday, and no matter how much I tell myself that it is Frid Thursday I can't shake the Friday feeling. So, that must mean the only cure is margaritas after work with my main squeeze and sleeping in tomorrow. Since neither is really an option I guess I'll have to settle for some amazing videos. Those videos just warm my heart! Have a great day!

Boots , BlazerJeansT-shirt (similar), Necklace (similar)

I'm back for a short visit. This has been my transitioning into fall outfit. It is also the outfit I wore around this weekend for wedding errands. That sort of disheveled hair and bewildered face are pretty much standard for me these days. Planning a wedding is time consuming. Anyone who tells your otherwise is crazy has super powers.

On to bigger and better news.....

We added to our family! It has been crazy around here with this new little addition to our family but we are so happy. It is hectic right now, but I would not trade it for the world. Our little fur babies are growing up and we are getting married. It seems unreal!

Fun fact... The little dude has tripled in size since we got him and grazes like a cow.

I'll try to post more outfits in the coming weeks, but no promises. Have a great day lovelies!
