Fall Capsule #1: Caught Red Walled


Today’s fun highlights:

  • In news that would only happen to me: This red wall is one of my favorite walls to take photos against, buuuuuttt the other day, I got caught by the (new) owners of this red-walled building while getting ready to take photos. I did not tell them about my super cool style blog. Instead, I told them I loved cool color walls (not a lie?). They probably thought I was crazy. They are probably right. But they’re opening a brew pub in the building, so that was fun to find out…since it is less than a mile away from my house.
  • I was so flustered, I didn’t even use a purse in this post.
  • On that note: someone found my blog on Monday of this week by searching “classy 55 year old mother.” Just thought you should know. I’m not sure whether that was a compliment or not.
  • Off another Friday and The Husband and I are off to Chicago this morning for his birthday!! We went to a brewery last night. We’re going to a brewery tonight…and another one Saturday afternoon. Boy loves beer?
  • He was obviously excited about that brew pub that I got the inside scoop about (see above…insert tears of laughter emoji).
  • Some of you loved the coat that I ended up buying last week. Well guess what? It’s part of a 30% off deal right now! Find it here and use the code EXTRA30.
  • I can’t think of many things I want for Christmas that aren’t clothing/shoes/accessories. This is how you know I am a style blogger on a shopping ban…
  • 45 outfits down. 29 to go! This is going WAY too fast!
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Seriously…the other day, I thought it was 9:30/10pm. It was 6:25pm. WHAT IS THIS?Darkness…apparently.

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

    • Thanks so much, Sara! It’s definitely worth a peek to see how people get to your blogs. Some make so much sense, and some are ridiculously surprising!

  • Haha, most of my Christmas list is clothes and accessories too, and I’m not even on a shopping ban!

    That. Is. Hilarious. (both the brewery incident and the search for your blog!) Tears of laughter emoji.
