I have a strong affinity towards old, abandoned books (hence this burgeoning bookcases). We seriously had those book cases filed the day we got them with old books that I had been collecting for a couple of years. This book in particular is probably one of my favorite finds -- "Executive's Treasury of Humor for Every Occasion." How funny is that? Plus it matched my outfit. I just couldn't resist inviting him into the photo shoot.

Anyways, today the mr. and I braved the crowds and went christmas shopping. I thought that I was finished two weeks ago -- but it turned out that I had forgotten half of the mr.'s family. So comfort was key today. I wanted to wear my boots, but stomping around for hours in those things is not as fun as I want it to be so flats were the answer. I added a little red belt to make an otherwise boring outfit pop a bit. Eh,not my favorite outfit but pretty good for a lazy Saturday I'd say.

I got a lot of weird looks on this outfit today. In my small town that usually means I've hit the mark -- that I'm up to speed with the rest of America. If I get an approving nod, that usually means I look like stepped straight out of 1992. Seriously, I could step out in head to toe camo with white tennis shoes and no one would look at me. But I wear a yellow pencil skirt and I get the stink eye.

Oh well, I don't look good in camo so I'll take the weird looks any day of the week.

I bought this dress a few years ago after I graduated college knowing full and well that it was much to short to wear as a dress. (Cue sneaky smile). This happens when you are tall - dresses turn to shirts, long sleeves turn to 3/4 sleeves and so on. But that is why I love tights -- they are not quite pants, but you are not quite naked.

Let's get one thing straight here: I do not like Mondays. But I do like pencil skirts and color blocked cardigans and that's enough for me to get out of bed. That and a paycheck.

I got this cardigan a few weeks ago and now they have a full sweater in this same color scheme. Is that wrong to buy basically the same thing twice?

Yeah, my husband said so too.

This weekend was basically one long road trip so I wanted to be comfortable. What could possibly be more comfortable than a button down, tights and worn-in boots? The absolute perfect trip outfit by my standards.

Well, besides pajamas of course.

Jacket & Tank: Old Navy
Scarf: Gap
Pants: Banana Republic
Heels: Target

This week the weather can not make up its mind. It's freezing one day, hot the next. It's enough to drive a girl mad. I finally settled on some wide-leg jeans, an old military style jacket and my new favorite scarf (I have to tell myself no every morning because I constantly want to wear it). In the end, everything worked out okay.

Okay. I'm doing it. For about a year now, I've followed a handful of brave and stylish girls through their fashion blogs. I've been inspired by these blogs daily and I've been wanting to start one for a while. So with the snap of a camera, I started a style blog. Wish me luck :)
