Double Breasted Wool Peacoat

I've been looking for the perfect winter coat. Now I know what you're thinking, "Nnene it does not get that cold here in Houston!" :-) Well with our warm one day and cold the next day type of weather,  I'm ready for the few times that it does get cold. This double breasted Andrew Marc Peacoat I found on Hautelook and for a fraction of the price on their website. I'm very pleased with it.
What you don't see in these pictures are my two kids running around in the background while my friend Alicia gets her shots.. Ha!

Camo Days

This week pretty much flew by and I'm amazed at how much I think I've crossed off my to-do list but yet so much more to be done. Having this "problem" I welcome. This week we honored the men and women that have put their lives on the line to defend our freedom. So this little "problem" of not finishing my daily tasks I am grateful for. I am thankful that I am free to do the things I love and be with the people that matter most. On Veteran's day I watched my little girl who's a 4th grader sing in her school choir for the Veteran's day parade. Nothing is perfect but I certainly feel blessed.

A Handmade Jewelry and Aztec Print Skirt

This handmade necklace was given to me by a very good friend Teresa.  I can see she put a lot of work into this creation and I'm the lucky person who now owns it :-) I decided to wear it with this vibrant aztec print skirt from TopShop. I have to admit this was my very first purchase from them and I'm loving it, the colors..... perfect for fall. It just so happens this skirt is currently on sale (checkout link below). On the day I wore this outfit my daughter told me, the colors reminded her of Halloween. Gotta love kids and their honesty :-)







*I had to put this shot in the mix...LOL. The bugs came flying at me and I almost swallowed one.
