WHAT'S UP WEDNESDAY, FIG & FASHION LINK-UP

Hi all. It's another TWO-FER post for MelSheaffer and Shay's What's UP Wednesday on the last Wednesday of every month. I always love reading these so joining in on the fun. As you know Wednesday's around here are fashion link-ups with my dear sisters from The Blended Blog so I incorporate this fun list of what's going on in my life in addition to what I'm wearing lately for the Wednesday Fashion Post! 
Leopard was the perfect accessory with this top. Jeans are J-Lo from Kohl's

 The drape front gives the illusion of a front tuck and the back is the prefect length.

I also am giggling because I picked up that Chamberlain book last Friday to read and then put it down because I had just finished The Lies We Told by Diane Chamberlain! We are so sisters from different time zones. I need to be Christmas shopping. I have ideas as to what I am giving but no $$$ to go do it LOL damn medical bills! That collage of Autumn pics you have made - swoon! So pretty. Speaking of so pretty....you are and I love you to pieces! xoxoxoxoxooxo

  4. Oh my gosh, this is such a good post! I love that Lush top in fig. And I totally agree that "This is Us" and "Kevin Can Wait" are the best shows! Those recipes of yours are terrific, I am making that sweet and sour chicken this week, we LOVE it!

  5. Burgundy and leopard is one of my favorite combinations for fall and you wear it so well, Andrea! Also, I think I need to make my mom's meatloaf after seeing this your picture. The temperatures are finally cooling down and it's officially meatloaf weather haha!

  20. I love how fall this post is. Makes me so happy. That manicotti looks amazing. The mashed potatoes too. I haven't had mashed potatoes in so long. I absolutely love Chicago.

  21. That is such a pretty blouse, I love the color! Except, now I have another name for this color. So far I've seen burgundy, wine, merlot, oxblood, and now fig. I know they are all variations of burgundy...some more purple (as yours) and some more brown...but the names are endless. I want to just pick one name and call it good. I've watched the Kevin Can Wait show and I am still on the fence about that one. I haven't seen the other show yet, but everyone keeps talking about it, so I might have to give it a try.

  22. Love your leopard shoes!! I just got a pair of leopard wedges and I cannot wait to wear them. The wedge is really small so I won't trip so much. haha I don't usually wear wedges because I trip too much. haha I too don't want fall to end. I missed This is Us last night! ugh, gotta watch it tonight. What a fab show.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes yes yes you already know my love for that top!!! I still haven't ordered mine since I cant wear it right now. I am kind of hoping I can catch it on sale and then put it away for after baby. It looks gorgeous on you and love it with the leopard, obviously! mmmmmm Manicotti!!! I haven't had that in so long. Gosh I love it. So exciting you get to see your other baby soon :) This is Us is so good!

  24. Uh oh... a sale on that mug?... you're killing me. I'm gonna have to check it out now.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So much goodness in today's post, Sista!! First of all, I love that blouse! Did you buy two? One for me and one for you!? LOL! second, just go ahead right now and Tell Mr. Nine that I'll be crashing that trip back to Chicago! It's time for a girl's trip! And bring your sweet Moma, too!! Thought about you this past weekend with the Fighting Irish, but it' s only got to get better right!?

  26. Ahem!! Blogger cut me off and I wasn't finished! Excuse me!! Anyway, I was saying that I think a great blog post would be your care packages you send to your boys. Now I'm finished. I think.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You are just adorable! I love that plum top, and you look great in that plaid dress!! How exciting to get to spend time with your son! And I agree with the TV shows. Have you caught The Good Place? It's a good one too!

  28. I love that Lush top, had had my eye on it for awhile and couldn't decide on a color and I am loving this one! Yay for your son coming home, that is such a great treat! I agree with Laura up there, I would love to see what you put in the care packages! Have a great day!
