Saturday night dinner with some girls, and a haunted house, then a Sunday drive to view fall colors with friends. Yes, I'm doubling up the outfit. And I don't care that Squeaky (she's just so little and cute- and has a very high voice) was with me both days:
I wonder if reading all these fashion blogs is getting to me... normally I wouldn't have fussed so much, but this time I tried on two different scarves and a necklace, wondering what I could do to "bump it up" a bit.
I'm glad Hubby managed to save me from myself. "How about just your neck (as accessory)". Um, it's chilly. But I supposed the shell under the sweater would suffice. And the earrings, of course:
I'm not a big fan of the cold. And most of the haunted house attractions were outdoors, so I wore my trusty trench. Freeda bought this sucker on super-clearance for $11, then got it home and discovered it looked better on me. I bought it from her. Perfect for a breezy fall Sunday at Seneca Lake.
As you can see from the waistline, it is a maternity coat. Again, disappointing the in-laws, I'm not pregnant! Because my hips and butt are extra-bootylicious, I have a terrible time buying long coats. And I hate short ones.
I'm not a big fan of the cold or short coats that don't cover the goods. One would think a booty the size of mine would have it's own heating system in place. Au contraire, my friends. It's like carting around a block of ice.

FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
