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.

Current trend I’m loving

Do you ever see a fashion trend you love right away while others may take some time to warm up to? Well this trend is one I’ve liked right from the get-go.

 

Burgundy pants, white button up shirt, black faux fur collar cardigan, black booties and cat eye sunglasses

 

I’m talking about racing stripes on the side of clothes. Mostly I like them on the sides of pants, but they could also be on the sleeves of a top or the sides of a dress as well. Super cute.

I found the pair I’m wearing in this photo at Old Navy. I had a $5 Verizon Up reward, searched through the clearance racks for something I liked in my size and found this for $10.50. So I got them for $5.50. Whoohoo! I love a good deal.

I paired my new pants with the racing stripe down the side with a white button up shirt, black wedge booties, a black faux fur cardigan, black leather jacket for extra warmth on a cold day plus a retro white purse and my cat ear Betsey Johnson sunglasses. (Still love these sunglasses the most out of all my sunglasses!)

What are some current trends you’re loving right now? And which ones are you still on the fence about? I’m still trying to decide how I feel about snakeskin print. I think that is one trend where a little bit goes a long way, and is kind of fun in unexpected colors. But definitely don’t wear it head to toe. Way. Too. Much. Snakeskin.
