I was thrilled that it got semi-chilly enough to wear this awesome sweater Stephanie from Those Tricks sent to me! She seems to think this color is better for me than her, but I bet she would look pretty lovely with that dark hair of hers in this cool 80’s vintage number. I thought it would be fun to wear with cowboy boots (I styled it this way a few weeks ago but didn’t photograph it then) and of course I can’t not do a jump-kick when I am wearing cowboy boots.
I was remiss yesterday in pointing out that the outfit I wore was to the Ladies Who Brunch event hosted by Gretchen on Sunday. It was nice catching up with some other Austin bloggers, like D’Andra of Sable & Sage; Kathryn of The Austin Gastronomist; Esosa; Cathy of Austin Slave to Fashion; Jess of Hello Wife, Haute Muslimah, and Andrea of Cat of Impossible Color. I definitely enjoyed the bottomless mimosas….Life has been pretty stressful, financially, and it was nice to just sort of relax and have a day where I didn’t have to stress out about paying the mortgage. I think lately if I haven’t been working I can’t relax, so the mimosas kind of helped with that. Who else is struggling to make ends meet lately?
