Happy Monday, everybody! I had a wonderful weekend - Saturday I made a loaf of cinnamon swirl bread that was to die for, did some laundry, took a nap in the front yard, read a bit, and then made my parents and brother a delicious dinner of pan fried pork fritters, mashed potatoes, white gravy, and peas! So fattening, yet so delicious! Sunday my mom and I woke up early to go play some golf with a few of her friends at this course north of us that over looks the Mississippi river valley - it was really pretty! I've never played golf before, so I mostly drove around in the golf cart and occasionally whacked a few balls. After we went to the clubhouse for their brunch buffet with unlimited mimosas...it was so good, and only $10 a person!
So anyway, this outfit is from Friday - the weather has been so nice out I wanted to wear something more fall-ish, and this dress is seriously like wearing a nightgown. Awesome. That's all I've got to say about that, so how about I get going on the questions you guys left me in my giveaway post (PS, the winner will be posted today!).
If you had to pick ONE item for fall that you would have to wear every single day (or at least several times a week), what would that one item be?
Well, if I was allowed to wear jeans to work, I would pick skinny jeans from The Limited - they seriously fit SO well and are so affordable! Since I'm not allowed, though...I would pick my royal purple cardigan (which I actually haven't worn yet, ironically!). I think purple goes with so many colors and is really flattering.
What made you want to start blogging?
I've read blogs of various sorts for a long time, and I didn't even know outfit of the day/fashion blogs existed until I stumbled across What I Wore. I was obsessed, and I loved the inspiration it gave me for my own closet. When I realized a few months ago that so many of my favorite blogs out there have only been around for a year or so, I figured I could do it, too! Plus, I really like having a catalog of what I wore to what event, it's nice to get to look back on it!
How do you transition your clothes from summer into fall? What are some of your tips?
I LOVE tights. I have so many pairs of tights, and they really change an outfit up (and make it warm!). Pretty much every skirt and dress I buy I make sure I can wear it in to the fall and winter with tights (my white linen Limited skirt won't, though!). I really don't like wearing pants (I think I only own 4 pairs of slacks for work), so that's my best trick. I'm also a huge fan of cardigans, so that makes pretty much every tank top fall appropriate.
