Looking through my archives, I see that every fall/winter I lament that I need to finally find some boots I love. While I liked the styling and price of the boots I got last year and got plenty of wear out of them for what I paid, in this Portland climate quality boots are actually a necessity.
I'm also having issues with the few pairs of jeans in my wardrobe. They fit perfectly out of the dryer, but in just a few hours I'm all saggy butt. What. The. Heck?! Because we're dieting, I don't want to invest too much in new jeans that may not fit too long, but we'll see.
With all that whining aside, I do have a cute ensemble to share with you. It just so happens that Em is the one wearing it.
Em: Dress, H&M
Tights & shoes, Target
She and Brent were playing a fairly gentle game of catch indoors (I know one day this will come back to bite us in the ass in the form of a broken vase), and each time she'd retrieve the ball, she'd exclaim with the pose above, "I got it!"
She's going through a "pretty dress" phase. The first thing she wants to do each morning is change into a "pretty dress." She has a huge dress collection, although not many of them are cold-weather appropriate. I think Santa will be picking up a bunch of sweater dresses for her.
We didn't do much yesterday, other than a trip to Target. We picked up this $19.99 bookcase. Inspired by this project on Pinterest, I slapped some contact paper on the back piece, and voila!
It's perfect for a little corner in our kitchin/dining area. I needed a place to house my cookbooks. Obviously I haven't filled the other shelves yet. I may do something like this with my cupcake liners. And it may make a good landing pad for my purse/keys, etc.
