Good evening, all!
My poor poor lil Angus has come down with some sort of congestion and that combined with some real nasty teething means my lil guy is almost incapable of nursing. He kept bucking and struggling and arching his back, which led to a visit to the local Urgent Care here in Mississippi. Sigh. I am so tired and down after this day of not being able to meet my baby's needs. Fortunately the doctor ruled out any sort of awful infection and has given us a script for antihistamine to clear Angus's nasal passages, but blegh, poor kid.
*He has nursed since this morning, but it is a struggle, at least he is trying...*
Since this is a personal style blog and not a baby blog, I will move on, but I am going to keep it brief since my ability to type, think, and write are almost non-existent right now.
Two Fridays ago, on the 16th, my brother and I hung out all day, he had the day off and I needed to get about a billion errands run, so we did them together.
I had received these Cafe Capri in Herringbone pants in the mail a few weeks ago, but it has been just a touch too warm to wear them. I did know, though, that I wanted to combine the pink with teal and grey, seemed liked it would be a pleasing color combo to the eye, even if the colors read more mid-winter or early spring.
With the utterly perfect temperatures for wool dressing on that Friday, I figured a grey herringbone (the Ryder jacket from 2006--worn here last) and the pink herringbone would keep me warm enough, and be texturally interesting, as well.
The capris, btw, are a tall 8. I could have bought the regular 8 and had them hit higher on the calf, but I have discovered that if a capri is too short on the leg, it looks kind of ridiculous on me, so I always buy the tall when given the option. Though these read as regular pants instead of cropped, I am okay with that, as I think this looks a bit less casual.
I had to go to the neurologist for my annual check of my head. Although my hubby would like to argue with her, I am not completely crazy, and it looks like my head is in perfect health. Besides regular run of the mill migraines, I have no other issues. (She confirmed that all the business with the PFO had been taken care of with my closure back in December of 2010.)
That bag is the Quincy hobo that I was able to pick up from the outlet down in Lynchburg for a ridiculously low price (I think it may have been $40).
Crystal circle necklace on jcrew.com and figured I would never get it, but with a bit of money in my paypal account from selling some of my own items, I decided to see if it was available on ebay, and it was...for a great price (much better than the price on jcrew.com, too).
The blythe blouse in polka dot was a random add on (sale, of course) purchase I made one day, and it turned out well, quite like it, and having seen it styled on so many bloggers, I get the appeal. In fact, the lovely Audrey Bella has it on in her blog post from earlier today.
The oversize merino pocket sweater is amazing, but I really can't see a way to dress it up. I wore this to take Angus to a Little Gym class, hence the stretchy leggings, lack of accessories, and ballet flats. If you have an idea of how to make this sweater more fancified, I would love to read it (or see polyvores).
AJC did a great review of it a while back. :)
Okay, that's all for today. I definitely will be back tomorrow, so I will talk with you then.
I hope everyone is having a great couple of days, especially if you are in the United States and have had the last few days off from work. ;)
