I just had the loveliest of days. I had two sweet patients today (read about my day job here) which contributed to a happy disposition at work. And so many people were twins at the office today! It just warmed my heart knowing that my silly wardrobe theme weeks are boosting office morale and overall senses of humor and playfulness.

And then tonight, I went for a little reunion dinner with a dear friend at this restaurant which was ABSOLUTE AND UTTER DELICIOUSNESS I cannot even tell you. Urgh! I didn't want to talk when I took my first bite of the sandwich we had ordered. Ooooooooooooooooooo boy. It was like nothing I've ever tasted. Perfect proportions. Tender meat. The most delectable sauce. Warm. Omigoditwasgood. Just drippingly good. Mmmmmmm. And then they comp'ed our ENTIRE meal. The whole thing! The owner said, "Get outta here!" And we were like, "Wha? We didn't pay." And then he was like, "It's on me tonight." And we were like, "Whaaaaaa? No way!" And he was like, "Yep." And that was it: A Free Meal. And it was awesome.

Mmmkay, so Twins Week. As I mentioned, THERE WERE SO MANY TWINS TODAY! Here's a peek:

AND THERE WERE MORE! It was so fun to see all the twinsies -- and on Halloween Eve besides!

Floral Pantsss

Hey! I twinned today in a chambray shirt and floral pants with black D'Orsay flats. Take a look:

Wearing 3 layers in an outfit makes it feel more complete

The layers give it dimension and flattering proportions


We tried for a while to get the perfect trio-ed picture of us in matching outfits:

Cute, but Val says: "I look too tall! Let's take another!"

Nope. Val's doing a weird leg bend thing.

Nope. Straight up sardines!

Ooooooops! "We weren't ready yet!"

Alright, this one will do (even if Amber is in the shadows!)

A Week of Twinning

You guys, this week is one for twins. It's Twinning Week when everyone (read: every person participating in crazy theme weeks) picks a twin and they dress the same! My twin is Amber (and Val whenever she can!) and we this week!

But first, a Saturday visit to a corn maze and pumpkin patch in the middle of a rain and wind storm:

It was beautiful and I got soooooo muddy!

And now for...Twinning! First up: Flannel/plaid shirt with black pants and boots. Hair in milkmaid braids. 

YAY for Twinning!

Shirt: Target
Jeans: Citizens for Humanity
Boots: Madewell

Gah! The shirt in all its glory! Flannel = BFF right now

I feel pretty in red lipstick :)

It was absolutely pissing rain today, so I pulled on my trusty rainboots and made it in to work. I brought a pair of heels to switch into, but I think the rainboots look better. Much more seasonal. And a necessary pop of color!

I love the formality of this sweatshirt jacket. It makes me want to march along and sing "Sargent Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band!" (Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah! Dah! Dah!)

Skirt: Target
Boots: Marshall's
Heels: Thrifted

Color in the lips, too :)

Half Birthday Blues

Blech, what a rotten day! I drove Jason to work this morning and we sat in traffic for about 75 minutes. It was awful. I was ultra crabby since I got to work both hungry and late for a meeting. I very much dislike not being able to decompress after a commute. It really gets my blood pressure up.

The day progressed slowly. A headache developed. Some nausea came and went. I took a 10 minute nap at my desk to ward away symptoms. It sort of worked. I got freaked out thinking about the possibility that I have the flu. I think I'll get my flu nasal spray vaccine on Friday. For what it's worth.

I best be getting to bed. And to think: It's my half birthday today. Usually, I love to celebrate my half birthday. Not today. I wish today was over right now and I'm going to make it so. Off to bed to read fashion magazines and drift to sleep.

I'll leave you with my comfy outfit of the day:

Jacket: Target
Pants: Express
Shoes: Dansko

The cowl neck turns into a hood!

The Dentist

I went to the dentist this afternoon. Just so you know, he said my teeth are "amazing" and "beautiful" and that I'm his "favorite patient of the day." Okay, so mayyyyyyybe he didn't say exactly those words, but that's essentially what I heard. I assure you, it was something like that. He loves me!

Today, I wore another blazer my mom gave me. I think I'm going to keep this one. It's the prettiest shade of blue and I think it gives me a lot of options for color combos in the future!

Blazer: Thrifted
Blouse: Thrifted
Pants: Gap
Shoes: TJ Maxx

The curly version of my new haircut!
