It's finally here. Oh Friday Friday Friday. Where have you been? I am so ready for my 4 day weekend. Its my husband's birthday on Tuesday so i'm taking the long weekend off to be with him and get some R&R myself. I love having long weekends. We should integrate them into our work week more. Maybe I'll write congress about that..

Here's my one thought for today's post: I wish it were Friday, because i'm ready for my 4 day weekend.

I just realized that pretty much my whole outfit is from F21! Weird! And I didn't even plan it that way.
So I finally figured out how to get my videos from my camera uploaded on to my computer. I know its taking me forever and what not. But, I.can.do.it!! So hopefully this weekend I'll get a video up for you guys to see!

So yes, i'm a little behind in my posting but life happened to me. I got so busy this weekend I think I hardly had time to have a thought. So I never got around to posting my outfit from Friday (its at the very bottom). As far as my excuse goes for last night, well....I blame Picnik! Or my computer. For some reason Picnik and my computer were conspiring against me and didn't want to upload my pictures fast enough. And for someone with no patience (me!) this just wouldn't do. So i did what any rational person would do, I gave up and turned my computer off! Or is that what a coward would do?! Ah well..
As far as these tights are concerned, I love them! I just wish you could see the pattern better. You can tell they are flowers right?! Someone at work asked me if they were pumpkins! Really?! No, Really?! I'm not 12! Again, ah well..

Yesterday I feel like I spent all day waiting. Waiting for lunch to come, waiting for the work day to end, waiting for Dr's Results, waiting for a blog post to come to me. Why must time always elude me? I bet that this weekend will fly right past me and the time will elude me again. Well at least today is Friday! Yay for Friday!
Anyone have any good weekend plans?

I know this is probably true for all of us, but I like to wear my favorites. A lot! Like these boots or this jacket. Since I'm a big fan of leggings because leggings = comfort, why wouldn't I put all three of these items together. Again. I do believe i have worn something like this before but I can't remember. Oh well, at least i was comfortable all day and not pulling or tugging at my clothes!

So this is actually the outfit that I wore yesterday but am just not getting to upload it because my computer wasn't happy with me yesterday. First of let me say that my tights look very much Peter Pan-ish but I'm ok with that. What i'm not ok with is the fact that I look like I forgot my skirt at home. When I looked in the mirror this outfit looked fantastic. In photos not.so.much! Oh well, you can't win them all!

This outfit made me feel super sophistacted and polished today. I loved the different textures and tones of this outfit. I don't really know how exactly I pulled this all together without planning but I'm glad I did. Its now one of my favorite outfits.
Oh and my new nail polish that I'm wearing today is called Hot for Chocolate. I love it!!

Friday when I woke up I guess I was feeling more casual than I thought. Skinny Jeans seemed like my go to for this casual Friday. Oh and by the way, these boots are so comfortable! I wore them all day at work then out running around Friday night and my feet didn't hurt. Let's here it for cute AND comfortable shoes!!

So, today was one of those days that started out fantastic and ended chaotic. My hair looked awesome when i walked out the door but by the time I got to work it had already fallen flat. The outfit didn't dissapoint me though. I loved the way the stripes and the blues played off each other. It seems like a great mix but nothing drastic. That was until I saw these pictures. My first thought was WHOA! Of course I like the drastic side of it. Side note though, i'm ready for the weekend!

Do ya'll remember the show pinky and the brain? Looking at my tights in this picture just now reminds me of that show. Maybe its because I secretly want to take over the world too..Hmm.
Short post tonight, gotta get to enjoying my "movie" night with my husband.

Ok, so this weekend on my many shopping trips I finally found some lace up boots that I liked that were in my price range. After using a coupon and a gift card I got the boots for $10. Who can argue with that?! Plus they are pretty comfortable and go with everything. I wanna wear them everday so don't be surprised it you see them more and more and more. I also got this beautiful sweater at H&M. This outfit was one of my most comfortable and I wish I could wear it everyday. Again, don't be surprised when I show up again wearing this exact outfit! Sometimes comfort is just key.

So here's the thing. Whenever it's below 60 degrees outside my husband thinks its cold. I don't know why but he does. And its not like he grew up in a warmer climate. He's lived in Michigan his whole life!! So because he gets cold real easily he doesn't wanna take my pictures outside when its cold. Even though its not even winter yet these may be my last outside photos for a while. It sux! I'm working on getting better inside photos but it's still not the same.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a great weekend planned out. Mine will consist of some shopping and hopefully spending some time with the family. I'm crossing my fingers that the time doesn't go by too fast!

So this post is getting up a little later than normal because I was too busy making my grocery lists and checking and double checking my coupons and store ads. As you all know i've always been keen on saving money so why would the grocery store be any different? I will probably be doing a post about it soon so stay tuned..
Today's outfit was about comfortable style with lots going on. So I mixed it up! Definitely a great fall look for me!

Sorry for not posting yesterday. I.felt.horrible! It was not a good Monday. I'm ok today, better than yesterday for sure. Yesterday by the early evening my clothes were just a nuisance. So today to make sure the same thing didn't happen again I wore elastic pants and stretchy clothes. It turned out to be fashionably comfortable.

So here are the lessons that I learned on Friday: 1. It wasn't the best idea to use this green background for this post (no matter how much i love it) 2. Fridays are always the longest day of the week. 3. This tank top stretches out really qucik. There not the most life altering lessons but they are ones that I learned.
Here in Michigan its supposed to be cold and rainy all weekend. So for me that means curling up on the couch or my giagantic chaise lounge with my favorite blancket to watch movies and bad tv. Relaxation at its best form! Happy weekend everyone!
