ANOTHER TAG! :) "You are amazing and so is your blog" award!

Two posts in one day- this is new! :P
I got nominated by Maddy (maddysdigitaldiary.wordpress.com) about, hmmm 5 minutes ago? Yeah, it's so crazy how quickly I respond, but if I don't do it immediately I never will. :)
So, I'll answer some questions, tag some folks, and come up with questions.
I must stress-IF I NOMINATE YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO PARTICIPATE! No hard feelings whatsoever.  I don't want any of you to feel stressed because this is the billionth time I've tagged you, so don't feel like you have to do it.

 Alright guys, here goes- :)

Sunday Style- Neutrals

Happy Lord's Day everybody! I finally wore a dress! :) It took me an eternity to decide what to wear. Usually I pick an outfit out on Saturday and that's that. Well, last night I went through a couple dozen outfits, and finally picked one. But on Sunday morning I changed my mind, and went through a bunch of other combos, and I finally decided on this- due to running out of time, but I didn't really like it. I thought it was too plain, and unflattering. But I got some compliments on it, so I guess it was okay. :)
But, this blog is about real life, and in real life I don't wear perfect stylish outfits that are perfectly flattering and trendy and all that jazz. This is a really real last minute outfit for church.
(I ended up liking this look by the time church was over, by the way.) :P

Sperry's and Aztec Top (plus cat pics!!)

Hello everyone! Today was my first day back to school! We had Martin Luther King Jr. Day off, and Tuesday was a teacher in-service day, so this school week just started for me! How crazy is that? :P
Well, I knew for certain I wanted to wear my new Sperry's back to school, and I pulled this look together. I like this top, it's casual, but not a hoodie, long sleeve/comfy, but not a sweater.
As for the jeans, they actually look tighter than they are in the pictures. Hmmm.... Yet other times they look baggy. I just don't know.... :)

Sunday Style- Casual Pattern Mixing and post ideas needed!

Hello! How's everyone doing today? How was your week/weekend- mine was busy. :)
 I was planning on wear a dress today, but most of my dresses are summer-y, and require a open-cardigan to make them more wintery and warmer in these cold months. However, my cardigan-type things were all in the laundry, and I had worn my jean jacket recently, meaning I didn't have much to go with a dress.....  so, I decided to wear a skirt for the 5th time in a row. :) I mean, there is nothing wrong with that obviously, but I have more dresses than skirts, and I like to mix it up sometimes. But, I wanted a no-fuss warm outfit, so a skirt+sweater it was! Y'all maybe remember the sweater from this post and the skirt from this post. (let me know if the links work, when I tried it, blogger wasn't showing any of the pictures, which kinda defeats the point....:P)
Today I mixed it up a little with my mom's cheetah print scarf. The pattern mixing was subtle, but still fun. I play pattern-mixing very safe. :) Enough of my ramblings, onto the pictures!
squinty eyes thanks to the sun :P

Stranded on a Deserted Island Tag

I've been tagged again! I was tagged by the amazing Katie! (Lilies of Grace)
So, I'm going to answer some questions and tag some people. :)
If I tag you, don't feel obligated to participate, by the way.

So I'm supposedly stranded on a remote island, and with that in mind here we go!

You can have one food item (besides all the fish you catch!) so what do you choose?
Oh man, this is tough. Probably cherries, I really really love cherries. :)

You can only have one beverage besides fresh water- what do you pick?
Either lemonade or chocolate milk. :)

What ONE outfit would you bring to wear (top, bottom, shoes)?
Just like Katie said, I'm assuming it would be very warm, so I'd go with a breathable shirt, athletic shorts, and sneakers.

Currently I am / Lately I have.....

How's everyone doing today!! I thought I'd try the Currently I am / Lately I have thingie that I've seen on other blogs. I also included some nature pictures that I found and loved!!

Currently I am:

Wishing- I hadn't stayed in the same position for so long......
Smelling- the Vaseline I just put on my dry lips
Listening- "Who am I" by Casting Crowns- it's such a beautiful song
Wondering- What I'm going to do for the rest of the evening..... hmmm.... :)
Feeling- very comfy in a long sweater-tunic-thing, leggings, and a *super* fuzzy blanket
Scratching- a strange itch on my foot.....
Looking-at my utterly messy room. Yikes.
Craving- sweet potato fries. Those things are amazing!

Striped Sweater and a Little Bit of Pink. :)


Hello! As you may know- I really love sweaters. I have a lot of them and they are my go-to winter outfit-piece. It was *very* cold when I went to school today, and even though it isn't the warmest sweater, it was still pretty comfy. :)

Sunday Style: My Favorite Skirt

Happy Sunday everyone!! How are y'all doing? Today I thought I'd share my most favorite skirt. It's a maxi skirt- so it's very comfy! I never thought I could find a maxi that would fit- since most maxi were *way* too long on me! I stumbled upon this one at Target- it fits like a dream. It's a little long, but nothing unbearable. It's sooo comfortable- I love wearing it! Maxis are fun to walk in, for some reason I love the way they float (I couldn't think of a better word-lol) around my feet when I walk.
ps- please ignore my wonderful hair. I decided to wear my bangs down, and it looked really cute, until it was picture time, then my hair decided to do it's own thing. :P Oh well.......
