“It Actually Feels Like FALL!”

Posted on: September 24, 2013

That’s what my helpful seventeen year old son and photographer

declared as he stood there in his short sleeves feeling the 15 mph winds .

I am pretty happy about my look today…

I like the teal with yellow  and the opportunity to don my booties for the first time this season.

I am so glad that I icked up thei Nine West bag at the Williamsburg Outlets,

as it is a great color for this season and it was a great way to add another pucnh of the teal to play off the top and necklace.

Dear Readers, A tough Monday to start off the week and the worst part is that I can’t freely talk about it as the emotionally draining problem is related to my husband’s job. It’s been going on for a full week now and I feel like my angst has greatly impacted my blog writing as I have felt empty.  I have very strong feelings about things and don’t want to say anything that will hurt him in any way.  Biting my toungue is a tough thing for me.  I was raised by parents who really drilled into me the philosophy that “All it takes for bad things to happen is for good peope to stand by and say nothing. ”  I’ve instilled this in my children and have been so proud of how they have stood up to their peers when they saw bullying or injustices,  without ever stopping to consider that it could have resulted in social suicide.  I think this is a lesson for me in how much we can stretch ourselves for others.   So hang in there with me as I hope this passes soon and i can get on with things! 


I am grateful that I am a woman of character and strong morals.

I am grateful to my husband for how hard he works for our family.

I am grateful that  Monday is over, it was a tough day !

I am grateful for the love and support of my children.

I am grateful for the phone conversation with my sister-in-law, whom I love dearly!  

I am grateful for my gratitude list and the opportunity it gives me on tough days to take a breath and look for light among the chaos.

Hopefully everything will be okay. One day at a time, right? You look lovely in this color combo!

Thank you. Yes, putting one foot in front of the other.

You are a strong woman and you’ll get through this. Life does affect blogging (and vice versa). That’s just how it goes. Hanging in there with you…

So cute!! I like that you are wearing teal. Teal is the color for Ovarian Cancer awareness and Tuesdays throughout September is the day to wear teal for it.
I am going through a rough time with work as well so I know how things can go. You will get through it!

I didn’t know that about teal and ovarian cancer, thank you for that info…

My mom is a survivor, and I have become more aware of the disease that affects women of all ages. It doesn’t get the attention that it should.

You look great! I wish I could be that daring with color. Hopefully all will be better soon, I am new follower of your blog. Have a wonderful evening.

Thank you. I see fashion as my creative outlet , so embracing color is part of this journey. I recommend trying it in accessories to start, like a necklace, scarf or purse.

You are looking fab! Love this color combo — gives me an idea for my own yellow jeans, thank you! Great necklace, too.

Nice colors, Tracey. The teal and yellow are really pretty together.
