Rule Breaker

Y’all, I am so proud of myself for being a rule breaker and wearing white after Labor Day. You see, I’m a rule follower to a fault. I’ve never gotten a ticket, I never got in trouble at school (well, in forth grade I had to turn my card because I shoved a cupcake in my mouth but that was really just a warning). Basically I’m an angel (don’t ask my family to confirm that statement).

I’m really working on being more adventurous and spontaneous. The other day the hubby pulled into a basically empty parking lot and parked the car in the wrong direction. I told him he wasn’t allowed to park like that and then he said, “Kacie, I thought you were working on being adventurous?” So guess what…we parked the car the wrong way. How’s that for adventurous?! And now I’m wearing white after Labor Day! I’m just breaking all the rules. I wonder what craziness I will do next.

Tired Face

By the time I got around to taking these pictures last Friday, I was exhausted. It’s not that my whole body was tired, it was only my face. My eyes didn’t want to be open all the way and my mouth was refusing to give a decent smile. It looked like I was growling at the camera (you know, just showing my teeth without actually smiling). Hence why I am not looking at the camera in these pictures. Tired face is not a good look for me. The rest of the evening was spent curled up on the couch watching Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. I even managed a real smile during the funny parts.
P.S. Thank you sister for letting me borrow this skirt 🙂

Where Oh Where Is Fall

It was 100 degrees the other day…ugh!!! I am so ready to add layers to my outfits but in this heat, a light scarf was all I could handle. And I still got looks like “who’s that crazy lady wearing a scarf when it’s so hot out?” Don’t people know it’s supposed to be fall by now! I’m hoping that if I start wearing more fall-ish items (like scarves, sweaters, and booties) mother nature will get the hint and send fall weather to California.

Gangsta

I’m feeling pretty gangsta (true gangsters don’t pronounce the ‘er’) in this outfit. Why? Because of my gold chain necklace, of course! Or as the hubby likes to call it, my gangsta necklace.  My mom said I just need a mohawk and I could pass for Mr. T. To be honest, I do like a good Eminem or Nelly song and when you add in this necklace, I am a pretty legitimate gangsta. Don’t all gangstas wear leopard heels??
