Hiya Blogland !!! I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend!! I've spent mine puttering around the house and relaxing. Last week I was off the grid due at Installation Public Works Academy in training for work. It was intense but very interesting. I've been kept with y'all on my tablet even though I wasn't commenting (just too much of a pain on the tablet) I'll be glad to get back to my regular routine this week.
As you can see by the picture above MrBill has taken to wearing his sweater. He was shivering so much I put it on him yesterday. He hasn't tried to take it off and he's been walking around in it. I keep telling him what a handsome boy he is!!! I need to find him a couple of more for this winter!! Here's a picture of Gracie and MrBill in the Craft Palace. Gracie is chomping on a chewy.
Some students in the class dressed SUPER casual this week. I decided to pretty much dress as I always do because there were some fairly influential and important folks higher up the foodchain in the class and it didn't hurt to give a professional impression. Plus I felt better knowing I was dressed nicely.
Thursday I pulled out a thrifted SagHarbor mint sweater, It had a little bow on the collar that I removed and replaced with a vintage brooch. The skirt is LaneBryant and thrifted. The zebra belt I found on Amazon super cheap. The boots are thrifted NineWest that I dyed black from scuffed dark brown. I got a ton of compliments on this outfit from classmates.
Friday was only a half-day for class so I decided to wear jeans. The jeans are ones I thrifted and made into stirrup pants. The boots are from Kmart last year (gift from hubster) The tunic is Avenue and thrifted. I pinned on a bunch of art-themed brooches. The bracelets are DIY, thrifted and from Krista.
Sunday's outfit wasn't anything like I planned. I had planned to wear a cobalt sweater with this. I had thrifted it (Rafaela) over the summer. Now it's TOO BIG!! I didn't want to totally undress so I swapped out a thrifted DressBarn sweater. The skirt is LaneBryant/thrifted and it's going in the donation bag. It does this weird twisting and bunching around the waist and it drove me crazy. Hasta la Vista skirt!! The scarf came from $5 below. The bracelet was thrifted some time ago.
I came home from church and went through the sweater hoard. Nothing I wore last year fits--I have a huge pile for the Goodwill. I was sad to say goodbye to my ivory fisherman's pullover and the plaid Pendleton cardigan. But oh well it means I need to thrift some more sweaters!! Cold weather is knocking on the door!
I'm glad to get back in the swing of things again this week. Be back on Tuesday with some weird Halloween cards!!
Linking up with Anne for Spy Girl: Paint It Black this week!!
