Seeing Things

I certainly did not have the relaxing weekend with my boys that I had planned. When I went to bed this past Friday night, my eye was bothering me, and the pain became increasingly worse throughout the night. Early Saturday morning, I was diagnosed with an eye ulcer in my left eye. It's my first one. I hope I never have one again.

The punishment is that I cannot wear my contacts for at least a few weeks. I have not worn glasses to the office... ever. It's the nerdy 12-year-old girl in me that refuses to be seen in public in eyeglasses. Hopefully they don't look so bad, since I'll be wearing them every single day for a little while. Scroll down for a look.

Sweater Weather

I can't believe I'm saying it, but sweater weather has officially arrived. Although the highs are still in the upper 70s/early 80s, the mornings are starting off cold and crisp. Today, I broke out my first sweater of the season... a sweater dress, of course. This is me we're talking about!

I have been sick all week, and am finally going to the doctor today. I think I have a sinus infection! You can see that even though I went to bed at 9 p.m. last night, which I haven't done in forever, I still look exhausted. I have so much pressure and pain in my sinus area... I just want to feel well again.

Rainy Day Blue

It's raining cats and dogs today, so I thought I would wear a dress to match the weather. I think this blue dress is just beautiful; the pattern and the colors remind me of the ocean in moonlight.

The Structured Sleeve

Happy Columbus Day! I am working on this (faux) holiday, but things seem calmer than usual. I am getting so much done!

Today I'm wearing what I think is a very fine example of a structured sleeve. I think the quality and detail here is just fabulous, and the puffiness makes my arm look more slender.

Mad for Plaid

It's finally Friday! Today I'm in a more casual dress since I don't have any in-person client meetings. I'm very excited to start a relaxing weekend with my boys.

Today is extra special because my wonderful parents are celebrating 38 years of marriage! What an accomplishment. Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad.

The color is Essex Street Tweed. I love that!
