Happy Friday (September 19, 2014)



I haven't done a Friday links post in ages. 

I just heard about the November Project.  Has anyone participated?  #justshowup

The Washington Post's Fall Festival Guide.

Have you checked out Baked and Wired's green parking spot?  Well, there are others.

This Wiener Race looks adorable.

DC Veg fest is tomorrow at the Yards Park.

I'm loving this pineapple themed birthday party.

My fall shopping list includes these flats, this skirt, and this jacket.

Baby Boos (Baby Halloween Fashions)

1. Monster Romper 2. Cat Set 3. Ghost Socks 4. Orange Elf Suit 5. Gap PJ's 6. Booties 
 
Last week I had a post on Halloween fashions. I realized after I selected the items that there wasn't much on there for bitty babies.  
 
It's funny how quickly I've forgotten about my daughter's early days.  Less than a year ago she was in that cuddly, pj's are appropriate all day phase. She seemed so tiny at the time that I wondered if we should even go through the hassle of dressing her up for Halloween.  
 
Here are some picks for you parents want to be festive but might not want to deal with selecting a costume.  They also make great gifts for any Fall baby. 
 
P.S. I really wish I had known about these elf suits last year.

Shoe Loves (Birks and Socks)

The 90's are back.  I'm not complaining about it, I loved the 90's (with all my heart).  I did make a number of fashion choices that I'm not in a rush to revisit: dark lipstick, matte foundation, shirts under dresses, and of course the boyfriend jeans. 

This summer I got caught up in the 90's revival and bought myself a pair of Birkenstocks.  Now that fall is here, I'm ready to wear my Birkenstocks as long as the weather allows.  Fortunately, my daughter is still too young to be embarrassed by me.

How would you wear Birkenstocks on colder days?  Hat tip to my friend K.B. for the inspiration.


This is my favorite look by far.

Heath Ceramics (Dining Loves)




I just discovered Heath Ceramics this summer. If you live on the West Coast you might think that I've been living under a rock.

During our vacation I discovered these awesome boots made by the Charleston Shoe Company.  I liked them because they looked like they would be sturdy but sexy.

What are you up to this weekend?  I'm going to take it easy and do some much needed unpacking from our vacation. 

I do plan on going to my first class at Soul Cycle's new DC location.  Like many people in Washington, I've been anticipating this opening for a long time.

Afterwards, I'd love to make these snow cones from Little Miss Party Planner.

The Muppets covering the Beastie Boys.

Since high school, I've been in the practice of wearing some type of sun protection on my face almost everyday.  Here's a great primer on sunscreen.

And in case you missed them here are my posts from this week: a recap of our vacation, packing your airplane diaper bag, and awesome baby sandals.
