OOTD- Roses cheer me up!

Sometimes I ask myself 'why do I blog, because it does take a good deal of time and effort?'  Then yesterday things at our household went south fast, my cute outfit was barfed on and I was cleaning up after three kids with the barf flu.  In all my soiled and laundry doing glory I had a moment of clarity- at least I can say I looked good for one second before barfy got me, and I have the picture to prove it dang it!!!  Remember when I told you sometimes after a rough day I reward myself with things?  Yeah, I broke down and ordered this, this, and these (crossing my fingers they are not too big!)  Today the disaster cleanup continues, I am hoping to finally get to that Halloween decorating!  Here is what I am wearing...

Top Anthro: similar here
Capri's Joe's: Raw Hem Kicker
Shoes Sam Edelman: Charleen flats

OOTD- Ruffles

Since Halloween is on it's way (and I can hardly wait, since I've had my kids costumes picked out since May!)  I wanted to wear a little orange and black!  Can I also tell you how much I LOVED Glee last night!  I love me some Brittney Spears (don't judge, you know you do too!)  Here is what I am wearing while I decorate my house for the holiday (pix to come)...
Top Anthro: similar here
Skirt Leifsdottir: very similar here
Shoes Cynthia Vincent for Target: similar here
Necklace old: similar here
Bag Coach: similar here

Here are a few of the fall items I am lusting over!!!

PS- I don't mean to brag, but I took this 15 question quiz on world religions (try it!) and got a 100%. Just sayin' (thanks to 'religions of the world' taken in college 10 years ago!)

OOTD- Remember when?

Let's play a game... my hubby and I always play this with each other when one of us makes a 'genius' move.  It's called remember when?  So remember when I got all dressed up in cute fall clothes (even though it was SO hot) so we could go on a 'fall drive' for FHE?   Remember when I had you take my picture before we left?  Remember when I left the camera at home?  Yeah, 'I am so smart S-M-R-T'!  Oops!  Next time I will actually remember!  At least we got a picture for the blog!;) 
Also:  If you have not checked out Melissa's blog please do!  She is sponsoring a great idea for all of us to wear a little pink each day in October to support breast cancer!  I am totally in, this cause is very close to my heart!  Here is what I wore last night...
Top Tucker for Target: Signature dress
Tights DKNY: Houndstooth
Belt Anthro: Looping lanes
Boots Miz Mooz: Solis
Get used to them- you will see them ALOT!!!
Necklace Anthro: similar here

Ps- Anthro why are you taunting me with this in grey now too?  I had finally come to terms with the cream one 'not working out!'

OOTD- Go Red!

I have had a stupid sinus infection all weekend, I had planned a cute outfit and was going to take a picture Saturday night when I attended a church meeting but felt/looked like crap!  So instead you get what I wore yesterday.  Being that I am University of Utah alumni and because they dominated in their game on Saturday, Ashley inspired me to wear this red dress yesterday! 
Dress Anthro: The shirtdress I am pining over now
Belt Anthro: Looping lanes
Shoes Miz Mooz: Solis
Necklace Tiffany: Key

Ps- I tried these on and they were a total bust for me!  My legs looked like drumsticks!  Has anyone found success with them, because I really love them!?

OOTD- Ice and blue

I love this blouse and hope Anthro comes out with another version of it this year!  I caved in and finally picked this up, I was worried it would sell out!  Here is what I am wearing today...
Cardi J-Crew: Bling button
Top Anthro: my next pretty blouse
Capri's Joe's: On sale here
Shoes Anthro: similar here
Necklace Anthro: similar here

With fall in the air (and a coupon) I ordered a few cute deco's for my house!  I love PB/PBK and could not resist this and this, is it me or would these little guys freak you out too?  I have such a fear of mice!

NYFW- Preppy

Initially I thought 'this is one trend I will not get on board with' but did you see how cute Rosa looked in her boat shoes?  I don't think to be preppy you need to look like this:
because these guys look like nonsense!!!

So here are a few 'low key' ideas to follow this trend!
Anthropologie at ShopStyle
The classic 'Nantucket red'

Anthropologie at ShopStyle
This takes 'classic plaid' up a notch!

Forever 21 at ShopStyle
This cute top from F21 is a play on classic stripes!

Gap at ShopStyle
I adore this varsity cardi!

Ralph Lauren at ShopStyle
Classic ribbon belt

Circa Joan & David at ShopStyle
Loafers with some 'bling!'

Lacoste at ShopStyle
This screams 'preppy!'

I know I won't wear a cardigan like this:
But I can still find things in this trend I will do!

These boots are made for walk-in'!

Last night we went to Anthro, can I say I love the whole ambiance of that store!?  I was soooooooo good and only got these.  My sister was talked into this and this but when you look that good in something it's hard to resist!  Today we are canning peaches so no OOTD, instead a picture of my new loves!

We also hit up Target and they have some really great cardi's for cheap!  My sister also got this and this!
