Orange you glad?...


khaki twill pants: c/o jigsaw london // scarf: fashionABLE // t: mossimo at target 
watch: fossil // bracelet: lucky brand c/o langston's
{linking w/ wiww @ pleated poppy}

Three Random Things:
ONE: Style //  I know this isn't any sort of "thrilling" outfit post... but just keepin' it real -- I like doing funky layers and statement pieces, but sometimes nothing feels better than classic.  I love these twill khakis from Jigsaw.  Can't get much more classic than that.  I don't have a lot of tips when it comes to fashion/wardrobing, but one thing I will say is getting a new white T each season in a must.  If your like me, your white t's get tired fast.  Bleaching just won't do anymore and you don't always want a "worn in look"...  get yourself a new t!  I usually get mine at Target or Old Navy (usually $5-$12).

TWO: Addiction //  One word... PARENTHOOD.  As in the tv show.  I mean my gosh.  I have never loved a tv show more, not even Lost, not even Little House on the Prairie!  I don't even know where to start.  I love the characters, I love the story lines, I love that I'm sobbing (literally) at the end of each episode, I love that its a regular "date in" night for David and I (he cries too).  Do you watch it?  If not... it is in netflix.  Start watching!...

And this is maybe a bit of a stretch (stay with me here), but back a couple seasons ago on Parenthood, Minka Kelly was in a few episodes which brings me to another addiction... Live FashionABLE which is an addiction Minka and I both share.  FashionABLE is run by the same people I worked with for Pixie Project and the purchase of their scarves helps "create sustainable business in Africa so that the women are not dependent on charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy." Pretty stinkin' awesome!

THREE:  Orange //  We have a new orange door.  It's weird and I love it.  I love that my husband found it at a salvage shop (wrong size, needed hardware, painting, and love) and got it up and looking beautiful in a snap.  When I look at that door I just feel blessed -- blessed that I have a husband with crazy skills and blessed that my marriage is so fun & full of things like having a bright orange door. (p.s. the hubs also made my mug!!)

  5. Well, one random thing about me is obvious above. I am a bit clueless when it comes to tecchy stuff. Oh, I fake it well enough--I blog over at http://sheshares.org and have to know a bit or two about code--but I guess I "cropped" the wrong part for my pic above! LOL!

    Looking forward to meeting you at Influence!

  6. Agreed on the white tees! I have a thing for white tops and jackets, but man oh man, do they wear out fast. I was just looking at my white henley tee from last year, the one with the subtle lace ruffles, thinking it is looking a li'l sad these days... Off to Target! :)

  7. I agree with your take of blog outfits, I love your style! The orange door is darling, I've always wanted a colored door. One day when I have a house, I think I would like red or maybe yellow.
