Go Colts Go!, Part 2

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Last week’s Colts pride post must have been a good luck charm. It had to be. The Colts beat the Bengals (sorry Cincy readers), and we’re off to see Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos this week.
  • I’m so superstitious when it comes to my Colts that (of course) I had to do another Blue Friday/Colts themed outfit. #sorrynotsorry This one is a bit more subtle, but still involves blue/white (our colors) and our mascot (colt/horses). C’mon boys, beat Denver!
  • I’m off today and back on my regular schedule of every other Friday off. Hip hip hooray!
  • We’re planning on going out tonight to celebrate my promotion at work! I got promoted Monday, and I was pretty surprised and pleased about it! I’m doing the same job, but with some more responsibilities (and more pay), so it’s all good! And beyond that, my plans are to relax and watch football all weekend long!
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Holy cats, you guys! It is COLD here in the Midwest. I took blog photos outside yesterday for this post…it was 3 degrees outside when I took them. YIKES. Anyone in Florida (or somewhere else warm) want to take me in for the next two to three months? I promise to bake you cookies once a week? Tempting, I know.

Fall Capsule #1: Horsing Around (Again)

DSC085991DSC086001DSC085971DSC085941

Guys, I’m officially a style blogger now! I bought a used, but still fancy “style blogger lens” (aka a 50mm f/1.8 Mid-Range Lens) one and half weeks ago, and I’m slowly but surely learning how to use it.

I shot about 3 outfits before I think I figured out some of the tricks, so the next couple of outfit photos might be a bit overexposed (read super white and light), so bear with me.  I’m really hoping that this takes my blog to the next level, plus it’s kind of fun to figure stuff out like that (I think? ;)).

Anyways, the browns and navys of this outfit were calling my name one early morning in my closet, so I had to give in and let them hang out together.

ps. Any tips and tricks on working with this type of lens?

Fall Capsule #1: Out of the Woods

As I mentioned on Friday, The Husband and I had taken the day off from work to go on a hike in Brown County, Indiana, and we were worried about the rain ruining our plans (oh and it was gonna be coooooold). We had planned on Thursday night to not go at all, but woke up on Friday morning and didn’t really want to give up our original plans.

So off we went (blasting Taylor Swift the entire way).

We arrived right after 9:00am and seemed to have the whole park to ourselves, which NEVER happens. The leaves were pretty much gone, but we still enjoyed our 1.5 hour hike together, and it was still really gorgeous.

And then we got pizza! If you ever find yourself in the gorgeous college town of Bloomington, Indiana (home to my Alma mater Indiana University), then please stop for lunch or dinner at Mother Bear’s pizza. You can thank me later.

The rest of the weekend was chill and full of good food, which is very important. And Target came to my website and pinned this picture. SUPER, SUPER EXCITING!

Hope you all had an equally great weekend as well!

Ps. And this coat came up for sale on Friday, and I had to have it. I missed out on it last year, and that was not about to happen again. My favorite color combo? On an item that I am eligible to purchase? Plus, an additional discount AND 31% off and free shipping (thanks Halloween)? Done and done.

Fall Capsule #1: Horsin’ Around

Still digging this sock/ankle boot trick that I first debuted here. #sorrynotsorry

This outfit was just quirky enough for me with the pairing of the animal graphic sweatshirt (obsessed with this bad boy) and the animal print belt. But then I had to take it one step further with the socks (pun intended).

I’ve learned that you’ve got to keep it interesting during this capsule challenge. It’s all about finding new ways to wear things and pair things.

Who knew socks could be so.much.fun!?
