TGIF.  This week has been unsettling, to say the least.  In addition to being in disbelief, and having a heavy heart, for what happened in Las Vegas, my town has dealing with bomb threats to all of our public schools.  Everyday for the past week, and a handful of times in the past month, our schools have received bomb threats.  Although each threat has been false, and they suspect the same person, it's still scary.  Fortunately, the twins aren't in the public school system, however, Mason does receive speech services though the town, and is in one of the elementary schools every Monday morning.  I can only image how the parents feel who's kids are there five days a week.  What bothers me the most, is that officials haven't been able to catch this person.  If someone is sick enough to call bomb threats to a place where young children occupy daily, what else are they capable of? 

Sorry, I don't mean to be such a downer on this Friday morning, but it's been an emotional time, which is why I haven't posted all week.  On a more upbeat note, did you notice a little difference when you visited the blog today?  I updated my template!  I'm still working on a couple of updates, one which includes my logo, but so far, I think it's a great change, plus it's been keeping my mind on better things.  Let me know what you think.

Now to my look!  I've worn this tee three times this week.  No Joke.  I love the burgundy color for the fall, and the criss cross front makes it a fun update to a basic tee.  The best part is that it's only $10 and comes in five colors.  Not only is it great with a pair of jeans and booties on it's own, but it pairs perfectly layered under a cardigan or leather jacket for those cooler days.  Speaking of cardigan, this Leith sweater is back in stock!  This has been my favorite purchase of the season, and I think everyone needs to own this cardigan!  Remember during the Nordstrom sale how I wanted it in the blush, but couldn't get my hands on it?  Well, the blush is available too, although it is on back order.  My only dilemma is that I've recently added three blush sweaters to my closet, so do I really need another??  Although the colors of my embroidered skirt and tee scream fall, the sweater adds the perfect amount of warmth to take this look into the cooler season.  And when winter rolls in, you can bet that I'll still be wearing this outfit.  I'll just add tights and a pair of over-the-knee boots for extra warmth.

  1. okay so I love this look first of all. That skirt is so fabulous with the embroidery. And that tee shirt is a definite closet staple. My heart is so heavy too and it's hard to sometimes be all positive and cheery when the world seems so bleak. There is good out there and the positive outcome is that you can see so many people coming together. Happy Friday!

  2. First - I love your otufit!

    Secondly, the world has definitely been crazy this week, it's so sad the things people do to each other. It's especially difficult when you have kids. I'm dreading the day I have to explain something like this to my own kids. Luckily they are small enough not to notice, and I can keep myself cheerful by delving into the frivolous byt fun word of style blogging :)

    Thank you for the link up!

  8. I would be a mess if our school system was getting bomb threats. I don't know what I would do, like how could I send my son to school with those threats?! I feel for you and your town, that's just awful! But on a positive, I love your outfit and the gorgeous fall colors! I've been on a spree of cardigan buying lately, lol! I need this one too!

  11. My heart is so heavy too...what is wrong with this world right now? It's so sad and the new blog look too. Sending love and light your way! XO


  12. It has definitely been a bummer week. I am wondering if you live in the same town as a few friends of mine because they have been experiencing bomb threat for a few weeks. Truly awful! On a lighter note, beautiful look! This skirt is so beautiful, you have legs for days!

  13. It has been a heavy week and I'm glad you are bringing it up because I feel like I've been in my own bubble and I don't want to become desensitized to such terrible events. That seems like an even harder week to have those threats-this world feels so scary! But I must say your site looks great! Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend!

  14. That is terrible about the bomb threats. Just terrible. I really do think for someone to do that, who knows what else they are capable of... I hope they find out who it is quickly and soon. This week has been a bummer. My husband was in Vegas just a few weeks ago at the same hotel for a conference. Too close for comfort! I love those booties you have on and that burgundy top! I have some embroidered tops, but love the idea of an embroidered skirt.


  15. Oh very cute style
    beautiful top

  16. Such an emotionally draining week for sure. I am so sad to be raising my girls in a time when bomb threats to a school exist. We often think we are so much better then other places, but are we? Truly devastating.

    You look stunning as always. I am in love with that skirt and I can see why you would wear that shirt over and over and over again. Have a good weekend.

  17. I am loving this whole look on you dear!

    I am hoping things go better this week at school because that is terrifying!

  18. It sounds like you've been having such a hard time, as we all have with the horrible events that have gone on in our country recently. I'm so sorry and sending you hugs! As far as the outfit goes, I'm absolutely in love with the entire look! The skirt is so much fun and your top works perfectly with it!

  19. The print on that skirt is gorgeous!

  20. You look stunning! I'm sorry you've been dealing with local scares, too. It's a crazy world we live in. :( Hope you have a great day!


  21. Love your tee babe! This outfit is so cute

  25. You look absolutely incredible in this outfit! I love the way your embroidered skirt looks with the cross-front tee. I'm so sorry to hear about what has been happening in your town! In times like this it is so important to stay positive.

  26. That tee is super cute! I love the embroidered skirt too! So sorry to hear about all the bomb threats. That is so scary! I hope they catch whoever is doing it!

  27. Sorry to hear you've been having a tough time, I'd be worried sick if someone was sending bomb threats to my daughter's school. On a lighter note, I love your outfit, the cross front top and embroidered skirt look great teamed with the cardigan and booties.
