We are on our way to Michigan to spend time with family this Thanksgiving weekend. To those in the US, Happy Thanksgiving!!

Most days, I dress as a taxiing mom.  This means comfort but I also like to add a bit of some pizzazz. Most of my blog posts are outfits that are for "special" occasions. Most. Some are the outfifts that I wear on the daily basis.  For the day the day of the taxiing mom, I try to capture those outfits on Instagram.  Here are some of those:

Sweater Weather

Fall look, fall outfit, pink sweater with leopard scarf, striped top, pattern mixing, gigi pants, black riding boots
 Sweater: J. Crew (similar)
Pants: J. Crew Factory (exact)
Boots: DSW (exact)
Scarf: TJ Maxx (similar)
Shirt: Forever 21 (similar)

I wore this last Friday to an evening indoor soccer game. Look at our nice green lawn. Then the snow came on Monday.  Now it's all melted. This crazy weather is hard to dress for but one thing I can count on is wearing a sweater.  I have them in all colors and all weights.  When we moved back to Ohio, I started collecting sweaters. I have way too many already.  When we were in Florida, I collected shorts and ended up with way to many. See the theme?    I think I am now getting addicted to collecting boots. Oh dear.

Date Night Jacket

Express (minus the) leather jacket in butterscotch (cognac), large big cuff j crew jeans in straight and narrow, window pane blouse, leopard heels
Jacket: Express (exact, in butterscotch) - I sized up
Jeans: J. Crew Factory (exact, in Cherish Wash)
Blouse: J. Crew (similar)
Necklace: Target (similar)
Shoes: J. Crew (similar)
Purse: Kate Spade Outlet

I had my eye on this jacket for months and months and I don't know why it took so long to pull the trigger. I love this jacket. I've already worn it multiple times over the last few weeks. It's actually quite warm as long as it's zipped up.  I wore this outfit on a date night a few weekends ago. I didn't get to take a picture at that time, but recreated it for Instagram and then this past week for pictures.  One of my all time favorites!  You'll be seeing a lot more of this jacket for sure.

Neglected Talents

Plaid puffer vest, handmade scarf, striped shirt, pattern mixing, moto boots
Vest: Gap (similar)
Shirt: Old Navy (similar)
Scarf: I made it!  (similar)
Jeans: Express (similar)
Bracelets: eBay
Boots: Forever 21 (exact)

I can knit.  I haven't done any knitting in years and I almost forgot that I could knit until I pulled this scarf out.  I go through phases in my creativity.  I made jewelry for a while, did water color painting for a while, did sewing for a while, and I was going to attempt cake decorating but that didn't work out.  I think I may try knitting again. I just need to find my needles....

Leopard Shift



J. Crew leopard shift dress, jeweled collar shirt, cognac riding boots, fall look, fall outfi
Dress: J. Crew
Shirt: Loft 
Boots: Michael Kors via DSW
Bracelets: eBay

I'm so excited to decorate for Christmas this year. I think it has to do with being in a winter climate again. And, we have a mantle for the stockings.  We put the tree up on Sunday and will work on decorating the tree and the house this week and next.  Doesn't it seem like it was just the 2013 holiday season?  This year went by so fast!

I got this dress off of eBay a few months ago.  I really need to stop with my J. Crew hunting and collecting!  I added the jewel collared shirt for a bit more warmth and once the temps drop even more, I'll add tights.  We have a 90th birthday party coming up and I may wear this... unless I find another J. Crew dress to buy.
