Last month, I finally decided  to buy colored tights.

H&M dress, Tristan tank, Joe Fresh tights (recent purch), 
Aerosole boots (Winners)

I guess I didn't have the the nerve to wear this particular one til now. I loved this color the moment I started seeing it in some of my fave blogs. And I guess it took me a lil longer to figure out how to incorporate it in my wardrobe.

And thought I'd start out in small doses. Just a peek here, for now, and maybe more next time. Hah! The good thing is I love red with any shade of browns/creams/taupes.

The whole time I was getting ready, every time I looked down on my legs, one song kept sticking out in my head, Red and Black, from Les Miserables. It's just as well, since I'm getting excited, to begin with, and cannot wait for the movie version to come out. Is it Christmas yet? hehe

Getting There

I mentioned yesterday that sometimes it takes a day or two for me to gain momentum. Not work, more like with how I look hehe...

Esprit dress, cardi (old), Joe Fresh tights (recent purch),
Nygard necklace (Sears), Born boots (Winners)

Today was a non-stop kinda' day. This other woman and I had to go visit various offices and as much as it does not appear to be work, it was tiring going in and out of the car, talking to every single person at every office... wah, wah, wah...

Love, love this tights. Soooo comfy. Me, say that about tights? What's up with that? Seriously!

Just noticed my dress looked spotty too. Hmmm, again, what's up with that?! Interesting how I noticed things about my outfit at the end of the day as I'm looking at the pix. You'd think these things I should notice when I'm getting ready in the morning and before I stepped out of the house... tut-tut...

A Boring Rocker

That's like an oxymoron, no? How can a rocker be boring?! Boring or not, rocker or not, that's what I thought of at the end of the day when I looked at my outfit today.

Izod cardi (gift), shirt (gift from Philippines), Gap skinny jeans,
Tommy Hilfiger boots (Winners)

What can I say, it's Monday! I don't usually pick momentum til Tuesday at the very least. Heck, sometimes I don't pick momentum til Wednesday or Thursday, and by then, guess what, it's almost Friday already, wheee!

But hey, at least I was warm, I didn't look like I just got out of bed (I don't think, anyways), and it can only go up from here (I think).

These boots are turning out to be the go-to boots this season, next to my brown knee-high ones. I didn't really think it would be. I actually felt ambivalent about it when I first bought it last year(?) but there was something about it that I quite like, and I guess I was right after all...

I figured I might as well just talk about my boots, rather than dramalama at work, no? hehe...

Going Somewhere?

Yes, I was.

Gap jacket, Club Monaco tube top &
tuxedo pants (both old), Zara clutch (gift),
onyx necklace (Winners), Aerosole pumps

Went to a wedding after work yesterday. It occurred to me as I was getting ready that it's been ages since I've been to a wedding. Which then led me to realize that I suppose it's because I'm getting to that age where people are kinda' pretty much have gotten settled already. (what am I talking about?! I am there already! Eeeek)

The wedding was quite nice. They did their vows right where the reception was. It was very intimate. Just immediate family and some friends. There was a casual air to it but it felt sincere and beautiful...

Even though it was right after work, and had to speed up to not be late, at the end of the night, I got to witness the union between 2 lovely people, the food was top-notch, wine was overflowing, I had a great time... What a nice way to start the weekend, no?

Gray Shades of Winter

Ok, I realize it's not quite winter yet, but with the kind of temp we're having, it might as well be, as far as I'm concerned. Mind you, I'm not talking snow. But lotsa' lotsa' rain... wah, wah...

Roxy sweater and Tommy Hilfiger boots (Winners),
H&M striped boatneck shirt, Gap belt, Old Navy Rockstar jeans

How does one get motivated to dress up when it's so friggin' gray and wet outside that all one wants is to stay in bed, curled up under the sheet? If people think this is too casual for work, too bad people haven't seen my "outfits" the last couple of days. HAH!

H&M Divided infinity scarf, Gap fingerless gloves

... love its chunky feel...

The things we get away with, wearing what we wear at work! Seriously, right? I'm just so glad, really.

Old Navy toggle coat

Can you tell I like gray? I think I have 7 shades of it in this outfit. I probably could have piled up some more (although not really sure how that's possible) and added 43 more, which gets me...

This Time, It's About the Accessories

So, I did my volunteer earlier. As usual, more thought was put into the clothes than normal. Not that I'm dressed to the nines or something. Just saying...

Esprit dress, Aldo boots

Of course, nothing is stopping me from putting the same effort at work.

BR butterfly necklace

H&M belt

Joe Fresh bracelet/cuff

And after my volunteer, managed to cross off another person from my gift list. Slowly but surely...

Here's to 2 more days of weekend, yay! hehe...

High of 8º

Sis and I were chatting on Twitter the other day and we were laughing (virtually) about the way the weather people talk about the temp for the day. Today, for example, they said it'd be a high of 8º (Celsius). How can it be a high, when it's only 8º?!?! That's single digit temp! I know, I know, they meant max. But we just thought it was funny when they put it that way. No?

Sweater (old), Nicole Miller cardi, Rock & Republic jeans (gift),
Aerosole boots (Winners)

Brrrrr... it was chilly for sure! But sunny though. Almost felt like East Coast temp. Definitely called for warmer coat.

Old Navy coat

From brrrr to warm and toasty in no time, yay! And with the boots, which I practically sleep in, in the winter time, I'd say it was a comfy day hehe...

And today's kinda' my Friday so just taking it real easy. Now changed into my jammies, all set for the weekend, happy sigh...

What was that saying from Coco Chanel? Pile your accessories on then take 1 off at the end? Something like that?

Gap sweater, AE jeans (recent purch), Aerosole boots (Winners)

Well, I did the exact opposite. As in no accessories at all. I know I should have accessorized, but I wasn't really in the mood. Meh...

And I realize I'm wearing spring colors too, but hey, I thought with the gray weather we're having, why not inject a bit of color, no?

Getting Nekkid (Yah Right!)

Ever since my other sis brought to my attention that the color of this sweater is almost the same as my skin tone, I started associated it with nude skin.

Joe Fresh sweater, H&M collar necklace, AE jeggings,
Aerosole boots (Winners)

Don't ask me why that thought never crossed my mind when I bought it. Regardless, I continue to like the sweater. I'd like to think my skin does not look like a cable knit. Does it? HAH!

Kinda' losing momentum lately with my "writing". Not sure if it's the adjustment to the change of season, or work, or the books that I'm trying to finish, or god knows what else...

Must not lose speed... But then again, if I do, so what? hehe... Hmmm...

On an unrelated note, and late a day as it may be, just want to acknowledge the soldiers out there, both old and new, who put their lives on the line all in the name of our freedom. Happy Remembrance Day!

AND, tomorrow would've been my dad's 65th birthday. He would've been officially a senior. From down here, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! <3<3<3

Getting Ready for Christmas?

Today was spent on an all-day meeting.  

Gap cardi, H&M infinity scarf & belt (recent purch),
Old Navy dress, Joe Fresh tights, Born boots (Winners)

Funny how just sitting down all day listening and talking, mostly listening, gets me more exhausted sometimes.

No, I'm not sick, just cold:p

I like how someone said how the color of this dress is really nice and how ready I look for Christmas at the same time. So I'm not really sure if I was complimented or insulted. Hah! Meh, I love this dress regardless. 

Darn lighting! It's violet, I swear!

This was inspired by their shoes. I thought, hey, why not!

Old Navy cap-toe flats

Hump day... thank god... almost there...

Winter-y Copycat

As soon as I saw this look from one of my fave blog, I knew I was bound to copy it one of these days.

AE chambray shirt, Gap dress, Joe Fresh cuff,
Nicole Miller leggings (Costco), 
belt & Aerosole boots (Winners)

Boy was I glad I layered. Got some heavy rain in the morning then the temp just really dipped by the afternoon. Not complaining. Still better than snow, definitely.

Definitely not complaining considering what some people are going thru right now no thanks to the recent hurricane. One thing that's definite was it put things in perspective for me, which seems to happen when major things happen around the world, whether jubilant or heart-breaking...

Watching the election coverage right now. Heck, I'm not even American and I feel vested in the result. Good luck America!

Rolling Stones Gather No Moss

After all that brightness on Halloween, guess I did a complete 180 the next day.

Esprit dress, belt (from another dress), Nicole Miller leggings (Costco),
Aerosole boots (Winners)

With all the stuff happening at work, I so feel the opposite of my outfit. Not mossy at all, like a rolling stone indeed. I suppose that's never a bad thing, right?

And now November is here... eeeeek... tick-tock...
