Umm, Wednesday? Not sure exactly how that happened! There's just been a lot going on- I've had a super busy work week so far, which means I've stayed as chill as possible otherwise. Oh but I did make time to get some pumpkins, obviously. 

Let's talk about this pin!? I always want everything that ban.do makes, but I saw this pin (and immediately thought of this Lonely Island song) and had to have it. It's perfect! I really do like sports, by the way, and I don't care who knows! I also collect pins and it's getting out of control.

A skirt + trainers can very quickly go into 80's secretary territory, but I think this turned out ok! 

Overall I think the pin tied this girly/sporty outfit with a bow- Superga trainers I've been living in, simple gray crewneck sweatshirt that everyone needs, orange pleated skirt out of retirement in my closet (there are surprisingly a lot of similar options available right now so I guess it's still in style {one / two / three}), and yes it was brisk enough to need a jacket on this day! OMGFALL

Tonight I'm going to see one of my favorite bands (since high school!), Sherwood. Here's a playlist of their very best (imho.) I hope you're having a great week!

I’m putting the finishing touches on my 10 Essential Shoes post (and I have GOT to work on that title. Is that grammar terrible orr..?) and it will come as a surprise to no one that clogs are coming in hot as #1. Should I rebrand again to The Clog Blog? Blog de Clogs? Blog ‘o Clogs? All working titles.

This !pink! pair was all over my blog this Summer, but I think these pictures were from the first time I wore them? The Swedish Hasbeen site was having a fantastic sale, and my sister texted me about it (always looking out for her little sis!) Naturally I had a existential crisis about how I really should be buying a black/brown/tan pair, but really wanted a pink pair. What’s that about, anyway? Can’t any color be a neutral color if you just go for it?

Spoiler alert: I totally went for the pink clogs and I have no regrets (this being the second time that this has happened with a pink pair of shoes) there’s a lesson in there for me, and for everyone: life is short. And these clogs are the f-ing business.

And this outfit was definitely a warm up, see how I was like, subtle blouse? Check. Oft-neglected during the Summer boyfriend jeans? Check. But by the time I wore these on my 26th birthday, I was like gingham and clogs hellllll yeah.

This is actually the last set of photos by Adriane from earlier this year I still hadn't posted (just in time for her to be back from maternity leave on Monday ;)

Is this the least possible theme-y outfit I could have posted on Friday October 13th? Whoops! I did FINALLY come up with the perfect Halloween name on Twitter (with a lot of help, halfway through the month...) Happy Spooky Friday y'all!

I state my case for why Tuesday is the worst day of the week:

Well, it's mostly just because it doesn't have anything going for it.

Monday you can grumble about it being Monday and talk about your weekend, Wednesday is hump-day and the week is halfway over again anyway, Thursday is little Friday and usually a great day, Friday needs nothing else than just being Friday and it's amazing, Saturday is the best day of the week, the possibilities are endless, and Sunday has the Sunday Scaries but is still generally a great day. Which leaves Tuesday feeling like an empty day!

To be honest, I have found myself in a longer than normal season of what I call "the blahs", and maybe this is a self-fulfilling prophecy now, but Tuesdays have been the worst. I've really been trying to do something on those days to make them extra special- wear something I love, make fun plans after work, start my day with a special coffee, spend extra time on my make-up, call someone I love, take a fun dance class etc. etc.

That's how this Jumpsuit Tuesday was born! We're rapidly nearing the end of jumpsuit season, and I'm starting to go through my Summer clothes with a fine-toothed comb before I make the switch and bring out my Winter clothes, but this chambray jumpsuit isn't going anywhere.

Also i KNOW it looks like I stuck my ankles in a garbage disposal...this is still the remnant of my chigger bites from camping this Summer (I KNOW.) I also hit my shin on the corner of a bed frame so hard I was seeing stars, that's what that other cute scar is from!

What do you do when you find yourself in a season of "the blahs"? I know that everyone feels this way sometimes. Please share with me, I would love to hear!!
