By my count it's been raining for weeks. Granted, I have a tendency to exaggerate so what's probably more accurate is that it's been raining for 2-3 days. Either way it feels like we're in freezing cold monsoon season here in Ohio.

Regardless of the weather conditions, I had to go to work today and thus needed to put on something respectable. What's more respectable than a fabulous bordeaux bow top and a wool skirt? Iif you answered nothing, you'd be correct. Now if I could just get that exaggeration habit under control I’d have that whole respectable adult thing under control. For now I’ll just stick to respectable clothes.

Black Friday Fantasy List

Black Friday Wish List
1. Longchamp Purse | 2. J Crew Cardigan | 3. Anthropologie Dress | 4. Mac Holiday Eyeshadow | 5. Versace Sunglasses

By the time this posts goes live, I'll be wrapping up my 10 hour Black Friday shift. Yes that's right, I'm back to slaving away for the retail gods {don't ask me why} for another holiday season. Since I'm working and probably won't have the energy to hit up any sales myself, I thought I'd share with you my Black Friday Fantasy Wishlist.

If I had limitless pockets {or if these items ever went on major sale} I'd snag these lovelies up in a Black Friday minute.

I don’t know about you, but some outfits just come to me in my dreams. Now if only I could remember these dreams every day, getting dressed would be A LOT easier. But today for whatever reason, I remembered my dream and more importantly my outfit. Well maybe, I shouldn’t say more importantly seeing as that guy from How to Make it in America was also in my dream. No, I’m not talking about Luis Guzman {no offense Luis, I loved you IMBD}.

I’m not quite used to these new fall hours. Like today for example when I took my photos only about 15 minutes later than usual and it was already too bright. I even tried heading over to my favorite, slightly covered spot in the park but as you can tell, it’s still pretty sunny. I suppose I should look on the bright side of things {ha ha}, right?

At least it’s not raining and I’m not stuck in my apartment like last week.

Oh dress how I love thee. Let me count the ways.

- You’re floral print is subtle, yet still girly, which I love.

- You’re from F21 which means you were the opposite of expensive {dare I even say cheap}.

- Speaking of being from F21 you’ve managed to hold up splendidly over the last year!

- You’re gathered waist is perfection, especially for days when I eat a big lunch {okay that’s everyday}.

You'd think I'd be in the habit of checking the weather in the morning seeing as traipsing to the park for outfit photo is part of my usual routine. Apparently, I didn't get my own memo. Not only is rain kind of depressing, it also puts in a damper in my blogging routine. So rather than let this outfit go to waste {or try again next week}, I went the impatient route and used my kitchen/dining room as my backdrop.

*Note to self, remove the hordes of junk food from the top of fridge before taking more indoor photos {hopefully I'll get that memo}.

When I had a {much} larger closet, I always had trouble finding specific things. If I wanted to wear it, I probably couldn't find it. Left side of the closet, maybe. Perhaps folded on a shelf. Or quite possibly shoved in one of the several baskets I used for storage. So when I migrated to my pint size closet I thought things would be easier to find. Well, this blazer is a prime example of how awesomely striped blazers can get lost regardless of the size of the closet. I think it's time to make up for some lost time outfits.

While I'd really like to write something that is full of complaints about Monday mornings, I'll do my best to refrain. Giving that kind of negative attention to this outfit just doesn't seem fair. Especially seeing as it's one of my recent favorites. I've worn some very similar versions of this look a lot over the last few weeks, yet somehow it's managed to slip through the blog cracks {unless you count this grainy mirror photo}. So today this outfit get's its day in the sun. Thankfully I have sunglasses to hide my squinty, Monday morning face.

Today's photos are the first with my new camera. Maybe you can tell a difference, maybe you can't {for the record I can}. It's also the debut of this outfit which I totally ran out and recreated after pinning this.

I don't know about you, but I'm loving all of the fall colors. Particularly this shade of rust. I've actually been holding onto this outfit, waiting for the right timing/weather to finally wear it for the first time. I don't normally wait so long with new clothes. Typically, I'm too anxious and excited to make it longer than a day or so to wear a recent purchase. But for this skirt, the timing had to be just right.

Well I’m back with an EBEW vengeance today. While I don’t have colored pants {nor do I have a knack for anything DIY}, I do have lots of colored tights. Blue may not be the most colorful, colored tights {it's also hard to see in these photos grrr}, but I was feeling the mix of blues and pinks this morning when I got dressed. I’m actually kind of surprised I was feeling anything after the Felicity coma {and resulting sleep deprivation} I have been experiencing the past few days. Yes that’s my second Felicity reference in two days. I can’t help it, I am completely obsessed with how awkward the show is! It also make me miss oversized sweaters and long button down shirts terribly.

I also have a massive crush on Ben Covington. But today isn’t about Felicity or Ben, it’s about Everybody, Everywear! So click on over to see lots of colorful tights inspiration.
