Fashion on Friday – November 15, 2013

I’ve been laying low today. My youngest and I are both fighting colds. Bleh. I’m thankful that I had nothing official on the calendar today so that we could rest and watch Project Runway!

Here’s a few outfits from this last week.

Top knot buns are easily one of my favorite hairstyles. Mostly because they’re easy. I finally got to wear this top. I’ve had it for ages, but I actually took the time to do some ironing this week (It’s an annual thing). I don’t like to iron, at all. I do like having more clothing choices though.November 2013 166 November 2013 168 November 2013 170 November 2013 172I got lots of comments from the kids in Jude’s class about my ear cuff. They couldn’t figure it out, but they thought it was cool!

Outfit details: Top – Torrid, Skirt – Ross, Shoes – Payless, Ear cuff – Forever 21

I felt very ladylike in this outfit. A bit twee perhaps, but I hopefully offset it with my funky shoes and tights!November 2013 151 November 2013 153 November 2013 158 November 2013 160 November 2013 163Outfit details: Dress – Ross, Cardigan – Ross, Tights – Forever 21, Shoes – Dirty Laundry, Belt – Forever 21, Ring – Made by Me (Vintage Earring)

I love it when I can talk Colin into taking my photos. My smile is much more natural. There’s a lot of goofiness going on too.November 2013 015 (2) November 2013 014 November 2013 011 November 2013 013 November 2013 029 (2)Outfit details: Dress – Forever 21, Leggings – Forever 21, Shoes – Payless, Necklace – Vintage/Thrifted, Headband – I can’t remember where I got this head band, but I love it!

Tasty Tuesday – Coconut Chicken Soup

I tried this recipe last week and it was delightful! It is full of creamy flavor, but still light. My husband and I loved it. Jude thought it was ok and Zane would only have the broth.November 2013 048 (2)I used this recipe that I found on Pinterest. I altered it a bit. I didn’t use garlic or chilis – I’m not a big fan of garlic and I wanted to make it tame enough that the boys would eat it. Jude likes spicy stuff in small quantities, but I need to not go crazy with it. I also added some red, yellow and orange diced peppers and some green onion on top to garnish.November 2013 049It was also super simple to make which is always great for midweek meals. I’ll definitely be making this again.November 2013 047 (2)What Autumn recipes are you cooking up?

Fashion on Friday – November 8, 2013

I’m back. Just took a wee break from blogging. OK, so it was a really long break, but who’s counting? All is well here in Lamppostings Land. Life is busy and full – mostly with good things. I’ve missed blogging though and it’s important for me to find the time to do it! So I will work at posting more.

I’m back on a Friday so that means fashion. I do so love the Autumn – it means so many more outfit and style options. Here’s a few outfits I’ve worn recently…

Stars in my eyes. I love clothes from ASOS – so amazingly comfortable and fun.

Outfit Details: Dress – ASOS, Cardigan – Ross, Boots – Lane Bryant, Earrings – from a friend, Fascinator – from the Halloween section of Walmart!

Mega Stripes! Horizontal stripes – I laugh in your face! (Ok, so it’s more that I sort of giggle in your face, but I still love these stripes!)

If you have problem feet like mine, you will want to get a pair!)

Rainy days… My two favorite things about this outfit – the necklace which was a gift from my sister and these amazing booties that I happened to have bought while I was with my sister – she’s my fashion good luck charm apparently.

That’s it for now, I’m running late to go pick up my son from school! Have a stylish week!
