Going down in blaze of glory

What better way to look casually preppy or preppy casual than to wear a blazer and jeans. Amirite? It’s a casually cool and comfortable look.

Striped blazer, given to me; ruffled button up tee, given to me; ripped jeans, old; backpack purse, old; black cat eye sunglasses, Rue21; red floral necklace, Anne Taylor Loft; red chandelier earrings, old; sketchers, Ross.

A friend gave me a bag of clothes a month ago and since then discovered she has leukemia. Please send prayers!

Today I styled and photographed some outfits put together with things she gave me plus some of my own stuff.  (Just one featured today.)

Before fall is totally gone, I had to get in a bit of leaf throwing!

Yep. I’m a dork. And I’m okay with that. Then just like that, back to smooth jazz, real cool…

Thank you for stopping by, and happy leaf throwing!

Burgundy polka dot dress

On sunny warm days, we enjoy fall, on cold days, we hibernate like a bear. Last weekend was nice – we went out into the beautiful fall world. This weekend, not so much. We hang out in bed all day and try to stay warm while contemplating sleeping our way through the cold weather… Oregonian life.

Burgundy polka dot dress, Kohl’s, cropped black button up sweater, given to me, black shoes, old, disco ball necklace and earrings, Ann Taylor Loft, beaded purse, Goodwill, black cat eye sunglasses, Rue 21

I love the vintage 60’s style of this dress! Super cute and fun for a rock-a-billy look or just a retro vibe. I found this on the clearance racks at Kohl’s. ‘Cause I love a good deal!

Add in some fall leaves, and you’re all set for a fun fall day.

Yep. I’m a dork. And proud of it.

 

Keep my mama in your prayers this week. She goes in for another cat scan to see how the evil cancer is doing. More tumors keep popping up. This new cat scan will determine if they need to go after any more spots with radiation or start her on the trial drug she was never on during her time in the OHSU clinical trial group the past two years. For those of you who don’t know, she was in the placebo group the whole time and doing better than everyone else in the group until they finally had to take her out and send her to radiation in February after determining that two tumors that merged together were getting too big.

As always, thank you for stopping by and thank you for any prayers sent this way as we wait to see if, yet again, another shoe, is going to drop off with the cat scan news this week.
