Sweater: The Limited

Pants: Express

Boots: Aldo Shoes

Necklace: Amy Cornwell Designs

We had a low key day around here. My family left to go back to SC (BOO!) and I started the Christmas decorating to distract myself from being left behind. We attended small group last night and I just had to wear orange to celebrate the Vols' victory over the Kentucky Wildcats Kittens yesterday afternoon.

I am also debuting my newest Amy Cornwell necklace. She recently announced that she was discontinuing this style and since I'd had my eye on it for awhile, I had to snap one up! It is a perfect reminder of all that I have to be thankful for in my life right now. I am definitely blessed.

And if you want your own ACD necklace or need to order a Christmas gift, check out Amy's Cyber Monday deals here. Promotions end tonight!

T-shirt: Old Navy

Oh yes, boys and girls, it is that time of year again - time for cheesy holiday tees! My Grinch t-shirt is the perfect choice for Black Friday shopping today. It definitely made people smile all day!

Another client meeting on Tuesday. I had about a two hour drive to and from my meeting so I wanted something comfortable and warm for the trip.

Funny story about these pants. I bought them about three weeks ago when it was still pretty warm. I just hung them in the closet until the weather was a little more appropriate for heavy tweed. Then I completely forgot about them. Until last weekend, when I bought the exact same pants again. I only realized it when I got home and went to hang them next to my other new pants - the exact same pair! Apparently I really like these pants. HA!

Necklaces: Express & The Limited

Tights: Hue

Booties: Aldo Shoes

Jacket: Paris (2002 trip!)

I had a client meeting on Monday. I always try to play it a little safe the first time I meet a new client. There's nothing safer or easier than a simple sweater dress. This one is super soft gray and one of my winter staples.

I bought this hounds tooth trapeze jacket on a trip to Europe in 2002. I still love it now as much as the day I bought it. It's super easy to throw it on over just about anything for a pulled together look. It will be a sad day in my closet when this one finally bites the dust!

Socks: New York & Company

Boots: Steve Madden

Bracelet: The Limited

It was a tiny bit warmer today (upper 50's) but still overcast and gray, so it was the perfect weather to pull out this new sweater dress. I originally planned to belt it but then I realized it's kind of short and belting it made it a little too scandalous for church! So I nixed the belt idea.

I opted to try knee socks under my boots and I gotta say, I kind of like it. I wasn't so sure at first but it really grew on me! Definitely a good option for the really cold weather to come later this week!

T-shirt: The Limited

Booties: Payless Shoes

Ring: Simply Irresistible

I've had a quiet week at home after a weekend away and haven't been out and about much. I've got a busy weekend ahead though and I can't wait to start layering up for the winter weather!

I visited a craft fair with a friend this afternoon and am heading over to another friend's house for dinner and drinks tonight. She's got two young children and I know they'll be all over me like white on rice, which calls for easy pieces I can throw in the laundry when I get home! I love the giant fold over collar on this cable-knit sweater. I can't get away with oversized clothes very often so when I find something that works, I'm always super excited!

I'm still enjoying playing around with my new haircut. I'm even toying with the idea of cutting the bangs shorter and going blunt (a la Jessica at What I Wore) for a few weeks. Jury is still out on that one though. I've got two votes for and one against (and a one 'whatever' from the hubby).

Today's my first experiment in going with my natural wave. I think I like it!

Sweater: The Limited

Tank: New York & Company

Skirt: Banana Republic

Shoes: Kohl's

Necklaces: Amy Cornwell Designs

Today was my last day of client meetings at the office and now it's straight work from home the rest of the week. YAY!

I took advantage of the warmer temperatures today to wear my new Candies heels from Kohls. These are probably my best steal ever - $49.99 shoes that I got for....{drumroll, please}.....$.97. Yes, you read that right, I paid less than a dollar. Gotta love clearance prices + Kohls cash. Best score ever!

Necklace: Premier Designs

Bracelet: Express

Hat: Express

I spent the better part of today at one of my favorite places - the salon. Nothing like letting someone play with your hair for three hours on a Saturday. I know that weirds some people out but I love every minute of it!

I've been lacking in my support of the Vols this season, so I decided to sport some orange in honor of their game with Memphis last night (Go Big Orange!). I literally rolled out of bed and left for my appointment, so 'ease' was the word of the day. Nothing beats slouchy boots and a knit cap for making you look put together when, truth be told, you're really lucky you even match today!

The end result of three hours at the salon. Here's hoping I can duplicate this myself tomorrow!

Today was the second of my three days of client meetings. It was business casual Friday at their office, so we got to dress down a tiny bit. I layered up again for the long day and boy was I glad I did - we had snow flurries this afternoon! Holy winter weather, Batman. I am so not ready for this! But if I can't be warm and cozy at home, at least I can keep warm in this plaid flannel skirt and cuddly sweater.

I had my first client meeting today for the new job. There office is business professional so it gave me a good excuse to wear one of my favorite suit jackets. I own several full suits but I rarely wearing the matching pieces together. I prefer to mix and match them like I'm doing today.

I wore a three quarter length sleeve striped shirt underneath so I had a whole separate outfit if I chose to remove the jacket. I was so thankful I'd thought ahead because our conference room got super hot when they turned on the heat half way through the day.

Love #10

I need more shoes like I need a hole in the head, but these boots from Ann Taylor Loft are practically begging to come home with me. Blonde? Suede? Over the knee? Yes, please!

Dress: The Limited

Shoes: Vera Wang for Kohl's

Bracelet: Loft

Necklace: Amy Cornwell Designs

This dress may be slightly seasonally inappropriate but I don't even care. I was feeling extra cheerful this morning, if a tad bit lazy, and wanted something to match my mood.

I know I should be wearing all my favorite things during my last few occasions to dress up but there's just something so easy about reaching for a shift dress. It's almost like cheating.

What item do you reach for when you're feeling lazy?

Today was my first day at the new job. Normally I'll work from home but today I got a crash course in my new company. It made for a very long day so I wanted to be comfortable. It's getting pretty chilly here so this is probably one of my last few bare-legged days. Sad day.
