Falling into Fall

Tomorrow is the first day of fall. Waah. I love the beginning of fall, but hate the way it ends. All bitter and cold with winter-like weather creeping in. If only I can live in a land of eternal summer all year round! Sigh.

Wrap cardigan, gifted to me similar here, silk top c/o Mott & Bow, black skinny jeans c/o Mott & bow, blue turquoise disk dangle earrings, Target, black wedge sandals, similar, here. Tortoiseshell cat ear sunglasses, Betsey Johnson. Don’t give a damn attitude, earned it.

Time to start transitioning our summer clothes into fall appropriate attire. Today I am adding a wrap poncho. Wrap cardigan? Wrap? Not sure what this is. This wrap thingamabob. (Yes. I think that’s a word. My dad uses it all the time. Haha.) This was given to me by someone who wasn’t quite sure how to wear it. Well. Neither am I sure how to style it, but I thought I’d give it a go.

I chose to wrap the cardigan wrap thingy around my waist and tied it in the back.

Is it weird in the back? And do I care? No. I do not care.

This is what it looks like un-wrapped around my waist. It’s long, the sides hang down. It’s fun, but really, how did the maker intend for this to be worn? I really want to know.

Conclusion of the weird wrap cardigan thingamajig: It’s soft and warm and weird shaped, but I like it. Still don’t know if I’m wearing it ‘properly’. Still don’t care. I think I’ll play around with this one a bit more as autumn overtakes us.

Mixing summer and fall

It’s that time of year again where we start mixing our summer and fall wardrobe together. When it’s cold in the mornings and hot in the middle of the day. When I start feeling sad that summer is almost over and soon I’ll be freezing my little buns off again. Le sigh. Mixing fall cardigans with shorts and short sleeved tops makes it easy for you to take a layer off, or put it back on as the weather is changing throughout the day.

The shorts and top I got at Kohl’s, the shoes, Ross, old. The gray sparkle cardigan was given to me by a friend, the Kate Spade purse was gifted to me from Kate Spade, the sunglasses, old. The earrings were given to me and the peacock necklace was a must have piece I got at Emma Stine.

Last month was such a busy month! I got a chance to be an extra on In The Vault for 4 days, and also on Timmy Failure for 4 days. I started working on an indie horror film as well. We will be finishing that up this month, hopefully.

I finally got an appointment scheduled with a specialist regarding the cyst on the base of my spine, but won’t be going in until October. Considering they were having a hard time getting the referral to fax through, that may be a good thing as I need that in place before I can see my new doctor. Fingers crossed that he can help. The girl who scheduled the appointment did check to make sure this was even something he deals with as I’ve now had two doctor’s already say they can’t. Super discouraging, but if they aren’t the right doctor to help, you really wouldn’t want them helping anyway. If you are a praying person, I would appreciate prayers for a solution to these flare-ups of pain I keep getting at the base of my spine. So far nothing is making them go away and it’s taking less to trigger them.

Also, keep my mom in your prayers. Two of the small spots on her lungs merged together and now her doctor is getting concerned. As she was on a reduced amount of chemo and the trial drug pills, (or placebo, we just assume she’s on the actual trial drug as something has been working so far), they are going to up her dose for the time being and see if that works.

Cancer sucks! Pain sucks. But I’m just going to keep going forward knowing my God is a mighty God who heals and restores. He holds us in the palm of His hand…
