Monday Musings and Outfit of the Week

Happy Monday, ladies. We celebrated three October birthdays over the weekend, so it was a very busy time. We also had a few cooler days, which makes me so excited about finally wearing my fall clothes!

they are predicting him to be 6’5″, which I realized will not feel too different than this

My daughter and sister-in-law were visiting, and we had a fantastic time. We took my grandson to a pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins, painted crafts, and baked a whole bunch of spooky treats. My grandson is at such a sweet age and still enjoys playing with us and all of the Halloween festivities. One of my favorite moments this weekend was my daughter and grandson trying on Halloween costumes in Target and dancing up and down the aisles. It was hilarious and so fun.

I’ve put some pumpkins up on my mantel and eaten more Halloween cookies than I’d care to admit. My daughter and I spent Friday night on a skincare deep dive with all of the new goodies she purchased…more on that later. We spent Sunday night at my son’s new home for a BBQ… all in all, a family and fun-filled birthday weekend.

LOOK OF THE WEEK

Right after I decided I would pass on the retro-sneaker trend this fall, I found a few pairs I like. This week’s outfit of the week started with a neutral pair. I added a soft flannel shirt, straight-leg jeans, a long quilted vest, and a comfy crossbody bag.

QUILTED VEST / FLANNEL SHIRTSTRAIGHT LEG JEANS / RETRO SUEDE TRAINERS / CROSSBODY BAG / GLOVES / CITRINE EARRINGS / LIPSTICK IN INTUITION

These gloves are touch-screen friendly, so you can use your phone without having to take them off. I bought this lipstick last week and am loving it! I was feeling tired of pink, and this deep mauve is a nice alternative for fall. The jeans are high-rise and have straight legs, which are my jean of choice these days. I like how the flannel blends the colors of the denim and the vest.

BRA FITTING

When was the last time you had a professional bra fitting? My daughter and I snuck into Nordstroms this weekend for a quick shopping trip, and both went in for a fitting with a certified specialist. We were both shocked by the results! I could have sworn I was wearing the right size, but obviously, things have changed.

If you haven’t had a bra fitting in a few years (or ever), chances are good you’re not wearing the right size. Many of us go for comfort and, as a result, are wearing bands that are too large for us and a cup that might be too small. With our new sizes proposed, we hit the store on Sunday to try on some new bras, and I came home with this one by Natori.

Our temps are supposed to hit the high 80s again this week, but then hopefully, it will cool off for the season. I’m really tired of the hot weather and excited to see all my hot weather clothes in the rearview mirror.

Has it cooled off where you are?

Thanks for reading, and be sure to wear what makes you feel confident.
