What I Wore | 10.29.12

Since I always enjoy seeing what other bloggers wear through photographs of themselves, I've decided to start doing the same.  I often post about what I wore as a Polyvore set, but from here forward I'm on the mission to start taking actual pictures of me in those clothes.  So you can see how it works on a real girl... me!  Today I met a friend on campus for coffee and some computer lab time. (Sometimes it just feels good to leave my little laptop at home and spend some quality time with the giant, shiny white screen of a Mac. Heheh.) 

(These aren't the exact things/brands I wore, but very similar items.)

I wore dark blue skinny jeans and a gray camisole under a red-and-cream flannel shirt with a taupey brown 3/4 sleeve boyfriend cardigan layered over it all.  I cinched the waist with a gray belt and threw on a long red scarf to keep nice and toasty.  I finished off with the riding boots that I spray painted brown.  And those gray boot socks peeking over the boots?  Those are actually the sleeves cut off of an old cardigan I wore out.  I also wore silver earrings and carried a slouchy, olive green tote.

As far as makeup went, I went light and natural today.  (I think that heavy Poison Ivy had me all cosmetic'd out.)  Foundation.  A rusty-rosy blush.  Barely there ivory eyeshadow.  A bit of black eyeliner.  And natural, nothing-too-dramatic mascara.  I pulled my hair back into a simple, messy bun just because I didn't feel like dealing with it. Haha.

It was such a cute and comfy outfit!  Plus, it was just warm enough today that these layers kept me toasty on my walk to and around campus.  Gotta love fall layers and flannel!  And hey!  I got flirted with while adding cream and sugar to my coffee at the library cafe... so this outfit musta been doing something right. ;)


You are so adorable! Love love love your blog! I just found it tonight and I'm so glad I did! Congratulations on all of your successes.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
