We might finally be moving in the right direction over here. We had a gorgeous rainy day yesterday and I was thrilled to finally pull out my Hunter boots.  We are expecting more rain tonight, but I was glad it held off all morning while I was out for my run. I was happy to hear that it should continue for a few days.  I'm glad to finally be getting closer to sweater weather.  Nothing new here, just a bit of a recycle of previous outfits.  Hope everyone else is staying dry!

October Heat Wave

It's hard to believe that we are still in shorts and t-shirts, but more so because I am normally always cold here in the Bay Area.  After taking 2 months "off" from my running training, I am getting back to it now to get ready for the Holiday eating season. :) I am really excited because my family is coming to visit us and while both my sister and my dad have been guests in our home, this will be my mom's first time in San Francisco and I am looking forward to showing her all our favorite spots!

Lace and Buffalo? Check.

I found this really cute buffalo check skirt from Topshop recently and I am really looking forward to wearing it this fall and winter with a sweater, tights, and boots. But since this weekend was almost Texas hot here in the bay, I paired it with this lace tee and sandals that I found in my closet to go have lunch in town with my guys.  My husband even offered to let me shop around a bit, but I admit that I couldn't get into sweater shopping with the heat outside.  Almost all the stores in town had some sort of Columbus Day sale and everyone has rolled out their fall collections, but just the thought of having to carry a bag home was enough to put me off.  I did manage to secure a future invitation to shop later when I get cold.  We instead all went to the pharmacy and got our flu shots out of the way.  I completely forgot last year and it felt like we got sick repeatedly. When I suggested flu shots, both my husband and our kid enthusiastically jumped in.  We hope to reduce our sick days significantly this season.

Every Shade of Grey

I was thrilled when the weather feel on Monday and it even RAINED a bit! I worked part of the day and then headed over to my husband's office to steal him away for lunch.  It has been so great to pull out my boots for a couple of days in a row and I took advantage because I know that it isn't going to last at all.  We are already heading back into the high 70's and low 80's this weekend, so everyone was out enjoying the 50's and low 60's earlier this week.  For the second post in a row, I don't have anything new and I am, in fact, digging deep into my closet to pull out pieces I've owned for quite a while. I love this pleated Nanette Lepore skirt and no matter how much time passes, I always receive numerous compliments on it every single time I wear it.

Cashmere and Leopard

Yesterday we finally woke up to some chilly weather and we met up with friends to eat brunch before changing for the Cowboys' game at Levi's Stadium.  We really miss our Texas friends and it was so great to get together and then head over to cheer for our beloved Dallas Cowboys!  While our place only got up to the mid-60's, it was much warmer down in Santa Clara at the game and we had a great day cheering our Cowboys to victory.  Wearing this cashmere sweater that I've had for a few years made me realize that I need to update my cashmere as this one is pilling pretty badly now.  But it still kept me warm at breakfast and I wished I had it close when we were leaving dinner in the evening chill. Too bad I wasn't allowed to wear red anywhere near Levi's Stadium. Maybe I will buy a new one in blue?  In any case, I am thrilled with the cooler weather and I am not looking forward to it heating back up next weekend.

Lazy Mornings

Yesterday was a very cool day considering it has been warm for several weeks. My husband had a meeting close to our house in the middle of the morning, so I woke up earlier than my usual time and we walked into town for breakfast tacos and coffee before he had to leave. I am still loving this flannel shirt that I got earlier this month and I love the warmth even more during these cold mornings. Mostly, I love how easy it was to get dressed and out the door with my guy for a quick, unexpected breakfast. We are so lucky to live in a place that has so much within walking distance. I love our little town.

Not So Mellow Yellow

The last couple of days have been very hot by Bay Area standards. As much as I've been wanting to curl up in my new cape scarf or indulge in any of the basic fall shenanigans, 90+ degree days call for shorts, sandals, and the thinnest of tank tops.  I found this cute yellow top at Nordstrom Rack recently and my husband said, "Wow, that is NOT a mellow yellow. It's a little in your face, no?" Well, yes, it kinda is and I love it.  I also noticed that since I took a "break" from running for the last few weeks, I've started to get chunky again so I am more than likely going to start at my local running store again soon.
