I love that all these bloggers, from all over, who cover all different topics, are sharing and supporting each other. I feel truly blessed to be meeting you all and receiving your encouragement. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by, commented, or joined in on Emery's page.
I've mentioned this before, but in my neck of the woods autumn means rain. And today it meant a lot of wind. I was lucky enough to never lose power, but other people did.
Add to this weather scenario the fact that I didn't pack a raincoat when I headed north from my apartment to stay with parents before working today (Monday), and, well, there's the potential for a weather-related mishap. (Worst sentence construction ever, I know.)
Luckily my mom cleared up my coatless quandry by conferring on me her completely cute raincoat. (That was to make up for the previous sentence and was helped by thesaurus.) And it went with the outfit I had packed. Double win.
(As a side note, my mom's blog is a great daily devotional type read. If you like that type of thing.)
(Also, try to forgive me my hair, which has successfully avoided shampoo for a third day. I don't do early morning showers. Sleep always wins.)
So a day that started with the possibility of disaster ended up pretty darn good.
Feel free to join in Fashion Week over at Emery's blog. It's not too late!
Here's what I wore:
(see, super cute--thanks Mom!)
And a close shot of the earrings for your enjoyment:

jeans: Nordstrom (gift from Mom),
