Since we were discussing clyde pockets yesterday I was inspired to wear my beloved clyde pants today. This is the first time I’ve worn these since their last wash, so I have the hem unrolled and you can see they’re “fitted,” but in a couple of hours they will have stretched out and I’ll have to roll up the hems a couple times. I prefer them stretched out to this way, thank goodness it doesn’t take very long to get there! I love these pants, and am definitely considering a pair in black also. I know she’s not doing the cotton twill in these anymore, but for what it’s worth, I haven’t noticed any pilling or problems with the fabric at all.
This top…ugh. I bought it a long time ago from La Garconne with a sale on sale coupon code and it was final sale so I couldn’t return it. It might be a bit more “bold” than I’m going for? LOL Today is the first time I’ve actually worn it, so we’ll see how it goes – it might end up at slowre soon.
I ordered the oversized wool blazer from Everlane (size 6 – gray) the moment it launched this week. As with Everlane lately, I don’t have super-high hopes for it fitting like I want it to, but if it’s close and/or can be tailored to fit right, it’ll probably be worth adding it to my wardrobe, just so I can cross that item off my list…

I finished season 2 of Stranger Things and honestly, I liked season 1 better. Still worth watching, but not nearly as good as the first. I just remember thinking WTF? most of the way through season 1, being on the edge of my seat, and this time, eh…not so much. It just wasn’t as exciting…
News of the World has been on my list for a while, and it went on sale for $2.99 so I bought it and really enjoy it. It centers around an older male main character who’s transporting a young girl who had been “kidnapped” by Native Americans (takes place right after the civil war in Texas) back to her “family” in San Antonio. The writing is just beautiful, and the content sort of reminds me of Lonesome Dove, which is one of my favorite books of all time. It’s really wonderful, and an engaging read if you’re looking for something to read right now.
I’m totally feeling a carb/sugar hangover after my birthday yesterday. Or maybe it was the wine? Drink with lunch? I’m a terrible day-drinker LOL, but I had a wonderful 45th birthday 🙂 Today I am feeling sort of “now what?” Or maybe just the calm before the storm. Next weekend I have a pop-up shop for slowre, and then the week after we’re in Denver. The saturday after we get home, my step-son arrives for his Thanksgiving break, and on Monday, my dad and step-mom come to town! I couldn’t be more excited…Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday because it is ONLY about family.
How was your week? Anything good you’ve read/watched/bought/done lately?
