Apple Picking?

Leave a Comment
What do you do when you go apple picking but there's no apples? Talk about the latest zombie-centric DC activities and eat apple cider donuts of course!


The consensus? Tiffany (far left) may have already done it but none of the rest of us are interested #proudwhimps.

And if you're me and lucky enough to be in a ridiculously scenic area in Maryland you bother your photographer friend into taking a few outfit shots ;).

Unlike a lot of previous seasons, I'm really not feeling what's in stores right now. I don't do mini shapeless dresses, muted florals, culottes, or pretty much any of that hippie thing either.

So, friends and readers, what I have for you today is as "current" as I'm going to get: super flare jeans and a suede crossbody. They work with what I currently own but are a serious enough departure from my typical style that I feel special when I wear them. Don't know how much tucking in I'll do on a regular basis though, lol.

Can a pair of shoes be lucky? I'm not sure I'm the superstitious type but finding these Stuart Weitzman heels on super extra duper sale earlier this Summer was at the very least serendipitous.

I fell in love with them last year after seeing them on Atlantic Pacific (here or here), but I just couldn't justify the price for 5 inch heels that would be impossible to wear outside of work and/or special events that involved a lot of sitting.  But for a little less than $70 I'm ecstatic to keep these as shoes that make me happy to wear or just to look at in my closet, lol.
