blues clues

oh monday, we meet again.  i have been cleaning all day, like ALLLLLLL day, its painful.  and now i'm off to shower and pack because we are leaving "promptly" (so i'm told) at noon tomorrow for pennsylvania!!!  the packing, i'm not so thrilled about, but the pa part, i can't hardly wait!!  we have not been back to visit my family since last christmas, so it is long since overdue.  i need to get a little burgher realness in my life, i've been stuck in the country for far too long.  ahh, ok i'm too excited to really concentrate, so i'm going to keep this quick.  i shot this look waaaaay back, lol, ok, i mean, like last month, but still, that was a long time ago!  i am pretty obsessed with the turtleneck at the moment, plus, i'm super lazy when it comes to my hair, so the "faux bob" thing is really working for me.  and i'm also loving just about anything in this a-line mini shape at the moment, so i paired the 2 for a monochromatic style.  and ps, they are both from Old Navy who is killing it right now in the style department!!  have i said this before??  i kinda feel a little dejavu happening, but on the real, it's been good lately.  good gooood!   i laced up these blush pink booties (on sale for 9.99) for a nude-ish pop of color.  and since earrings and necklaces seemed irrelevant, i let my arm do all the talking with this major stack of bangles.  to top it off, i grabbed this taxidermy satchel, that i'm pretty sure you know by now, is basically my 4th child because he's so handsome, isn't he??  and, just as a super bonus and totally in time for the holidays, he's on sale for almost 50% off, which is major!!  ugh, and i went to the grand opening party last week and let me tell you, EVERYTHING!!  i want everything!!  somebody give me a million dollars, because this chick needs a closet full of python!!  i hope you guys have a great week, and be sure to check back on wednesday!  this week's "belle on a budget" is 1 skirt x 6 ways!!  trust me, its gonna be good!!
