Casual Looks: Not Too Bad & Oh So Sad

Last week my entire family snuggled up safe, warm and dry while the winds put on a show outside. We thought for sure a tree would come down, but thankfully they remained intact. Only the steady rains and the flying debris made us aware of the tropical storm, brought on by hurricane Irma. Thankfully we were not without power and aside from the subdued climate in our home it was almost a normal day. 

The dreary grey from hung around for a few more days...it makes everything look sad; sad and dirty. Mud and yard debris still lines our lawn, driveway and front porch. I feel as if this grey pallor has settled onto my complexion. Makeup appears to be caked on and no color seems to blend. So I give up and go for black and neutral.  

There's no point in styling the hair so I grab a ball cap, making today's post is all about comfort and functionality.  Black leggings and a black cami are layered up with this dress from Zara and a rain coat. As far as the adidas shoes go, I told you they would be making their way into many posts to come; just as they should!

Outfit Breakdown:

Trench: Cast Off/Hat: Hand-Me-Down/Shirt Dress: Zara (OLD)/Leggings: WHBM/Adidas: RackRoom Shoes/Minx Necklace (Premier Designs)

Cupcake for this outfit? 24 Carrot!

Oh So Sad: Outfit Fail

Now let's take a quick peek at the next outfit I put together. I will be adding this to my list of outfit fails! The morning started out cool and the outfit looked fine with the sweater on, but when I tied that sweater around the waist...

Something about those boots with those leggings. It just doesn't translate. Ah well, you live and you learn, right?

My little photographer told me to crouch down and pose in front of the sign at the cupcake shop. So I did...

I had all 4 boys with me on this trip to Splat. Here are their selections...

3 Orea and one Chocoholic
I opted for a pumpkin spice latte over the cupcake. Delicious!

Well, that's all for today my reader friends! Much love,
