Weekend Errands

After the heartbreak of the last few days, it’s time to regroup and get on with it. This is my “I still love the Rangers” outfit.

I am Wearing:
Sweater: Old Navy
Jeans: Levi’s
Shoes: BCBG Max Azria
Purse: Calvin Klein
Necklace: Thrifted
Earrings: Old Navy
Bracelet: Marc Jacobs

We have a ton of errands to run today as the kids are having a “Not Halloween Party” get-together on Monday and Mr. Fantastic and I have two costume parties tonight and a birthday brunch tomorrow. It was exhausting just typing it!
I got the necklace during an office swap several years ago and I used to only wear it on Valentine’s Day, but now that I noticed I only ever wear my Monet or Express necklaces, I am trying to branch out a bit and incorporate some other jewelry I have. I never used to carry this bag anymore either and ever since I started blogging, I realized that it goes with so much. It rarely gets put back in storage now.
These shoes were such a saga! I found them at Neiman Marcus Last Call last year on clearance for $34. In my euphoria over what a great deal I was about to score, I only tried on the left shoe which was a 36.5. Giddy that it fit and contemplating how to sneak these into my closet, I quickly grabbed the box with the other shoe and made my way to the register. The attendant didn’t check them either and after paying for them and getting home, I finally put both shoes on. That’s when I discovered that the right shoe was a 36! Which is only a HUGE problem because my right foot is a tad wider than my left foot and I could NOT stand it. After I went back to the store, they had already sold the other mismatched pair and I was stuck because it was a final sale. It wasn’t until two months later that I stopped into a NMLC during a visit to my brother’s in Austin when I found an identical pair. Try to picture the ridiculous and joyful dance I did when I realized that it was on sale for $7 because the pair was mismatched with the left shoe a size 35 and the right shoe a 36.5!!!!!! That is how I got this pair of BCBG Max Azria leopard flats for $41 and months and miles of patience!
Have a great weekend!
