What I Wore: Sweater Induction

  Don’t be fooled by the bright sunshine. It was 50 degrees out when I took these this morning. Hence the sweater, scarf, and me hamming it up like I’m freezing (see below). 🙂 It looks like Austin has finally clued in to the fact that it is fall/winter. Which means all of my sweaters and thermals and such are going to be joining the wardrobe rotation. I am fully on the scarf-as-accessory bandwagon now. They are fun, and even a thin scarf like this helps keep my neck warm. My neck (particularly the back) is one of those places […]

Sunday Confessions

  1. I really want to meet more local bloggers (in person!), but there doesn’t seem to really be a local blogger meetup, at least not of the lifestyle/non-professional blog kind. Which means I should probably just organize one myself if I want it to happen. But aside from that being daunting (where? when? doing what?), the thing that keeps me from really jumping into it is that I’m afraid no one would actually show up. Like, I’d invite Austin area bloggers I follow & like, but then they’d all RSVP no or something. Or there’d be a bunch of […]
