LIGHT ON THE SCARF, WHAT'S UP WEDNESDAY AND 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! Let's get to it with this cozy cocoon cardigan and lightweight scarf. All the outfit deets below. 

The theme for this week's October Series Link-Ups is scarves. While I like the blanket scarves, there is just no way this hot blooded mama can wear that flame inducing big piece of material around my neck for long. I prefer a lighter weight scarf for fashion and cooling purposes.

Just LOVE the Fall-ish colors!

  8. haha! That is so funny about the blanket scarves, Andrea! I can only wear them if I'm freezing. The lighter scarves are definitely a good option for the warmer days and I love yours! And your boots! I asked for those for my birthday, I'm hoping I get them because I am obsessed haha! Good luck to your son this weekend!

  10. So much good stuff in this post! First off, I love your pretty scarf and chic fall look! The bbq pork stuffed potatoes look delicious and since I have everything to make them, that might be dinner tonight! I didn't realize there was a new Shopaholic book in the series! Have a great day!

  14. Oh, I new we were BFFs! I can't wear that flame inducing thing, either! I'm just not a scarf person because I don't like things around my neck. I have one or two that I can "tolerate" until about lunch time and then, it's off! And dang! I forgot to mention that Wayne and I saw The Accountant last week in Baton Rouge, too. I really liked it, but SO not what I was expecting! Heck! I was just glad they didn't make us out to be boring and pathetic! Maybe I need to go rogue! Ha! Love ya! xoxo

  15. I also can't wait for Cmas decorating..I'm ready to do it now...gonna need lots of cozy for the crazy winter that they're predicting.

I love the throwback of all of you at the Cubs game, stinks they lost last night but maybe next game. And your by far the best pirate wench I've ever seen! Beautifully Candid

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love your outfits! You always knock it right out of the park. I'm so thrilled for the Cubs and am rooting for them. They totally deserve it. I'm hoping tonight's game has a different ending than last nights. Go Cubs.

  23. So much to say! That loaded cauliflower sounds amazing. I will definitely be trying it soon! I love the pic of you and your boys at the Cubs game! We are rooting for y'all, too! And I LOVE that throwback pick of you from Halloween in '89!! One of my friends was a pirate wench one year and her costume was almost identical to yours! Happy Wednesday! XO

  24. That sweater looks so cozy and comfy! I have a few scarves and they are great in theory for me, but I hate having stuff around my neck! I cant wear turtle or cow neck things either. Drive me nuts! Those baked potatoes look so good. I am loving American Housewife!!! We also started watching Kevin Can Wait and that has been funny. The Good Place is cute. I want to try Man With a Plan too!

  25. I love the look of blanket scarves too, but I can't deal with feeling constricted and hot. LOL! The loaded cauliflower looks delish! Loving the throwback Halloween pic, you are too cute!

  28. LOVE that scarf!!! I ordered that cardigan in the charcoal during the Anniversary Sale but it was backordered and ended up cancelling because they sold out of my size! I wanted it so badly! I keep checking to see if they restock it, but no such luck. I really love your outfit with the striped dress and yellow scarf!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I really like that your light-weight scarf is actually fall-looking. Most of mine are really springy! And your hair in that pirate picture! AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I LOVE that scarf!! So cute! And perfect for this time of year when it's just a little chilly out. :)

    All of your eats look and sound so yummy!

    And how cute are you in that pirate costume! You rocked that hair, girl!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree with you about needing to wear a lighter scarf over a bulkier one because I tend to get hot! I can't wait to hear about your little getaway, and it's so exciting about the Cubs! My husband and I are also loving American Housewife! It's so funny!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I absolutely ADORE your scarf and this post made me think of the fact that I don't think I've worn a scarf all fall (I have serious issues!!!)!!!

  62. Loving all the tidbits about life! The hot scarves - as a middle aged mama, I feel you - I start out wearing one but it ends up coming off pretty quick! I'm so excited for Cubs fans . . . anyone who's got a heart has to root for a team that's trying to break a 108 year wait - right?!? Wish we had some rain - we could use some cooling off here! I'm so excited for the holidays too - can't believe it's almost time to decorate and shop!!!
