trouser trial

I got these trousers on a whim this summer at the H&M in NYC.... I saw them on super sale ($10) near the register and couldn't resist.... alas I didn't even bother trying them on and they turned out to be a bit big (particularly in the bum region)..... what's worse is they tend to become droopier while being worn. So, I've concluded that while they are a nice look, these pants need to either find a new owner, or be seriously altered!

they may look okay here, but by the end of the day I was referring to them as my "depend-able pants" (get it....?) anyhow, in much more exciting news (whats more exciting than ill-fitting pants you ask?!) Well, tonight is the first meeting of the "Literary Lasses" a book club that I started! I am very excited/ nervous! I chose for us to read Edgar Allan Poe (in honor of the spooky season at hand) and I have thoroughly enjoyed scaring myself with his tales and am looking forward to hearing input from the other ladies! I'll be sure to take some photos and let you know how it goes!

an ode to autumn!

Well, this is an image heavy post, but I just couldn't resist! Ryan and I went to the Louisburg Cider Mill yesterday evening, and it was pretty and fun and the perfect date for me and Ryan! It was sort of random, cause they were getting close to closing time, and it was a week day, so there was NO ONE around, so we had the entire place to ourselves! Here we are getting lost in the corn maze! I was really bad at figuring out the maze and kept trying to sneak out, but Ryan was persistant and navigated us through it in the end!

There were Tipis and a little fort(filled with Hay) and farm animals (we found an escaped goat hanging out outside of his pen! woops) .....

we walked through the pumpkin patch and picked the perfect one for our porch! I choose a sort of dented/ not sphereical one so that I could carve a ghost face on it for halloween! (p.s. I was shocked that Ryan let me take so many pictures of him! he's usually a bit camera shy! but isn't he cute?)

I had to get a close up of Ryan's shirt! It's an original, embroidered by yours truly!

All in all it was a great little escape from the city! the drive was beautiful, the company was great and did I mention that we got a DOZEN cider donuts! yup thats 12 donuts! they are soooo good, so now my belly is full and I am feeling a little sick, but so glad to of celebrated fall by going to the cider mill!

Thieving for a good reason!

Just a quick post here.... I have to admit that I stole this look/ appropriated it/ was inspired by Krystal over at This Time Tomorrow (she has a great blog, and great style!).... so, um, THANKS! for the inspiration, this was the perfect outfit for a slightly warm fall day!
where do you get your inspiration from? I love to peruse fashion blogs for inpiration, but I am also influenced by my friends (they are generally fabulous and fashionable), by art, and as a costumer by history of course!

fall show

so.. it's show week again for us over at the Kansas City Ballet (it's a great show, if you are a local, I'd say "GO!")! It's proving to be another fun/busy show, with lots of last minute changes and innovations in the costume shop, but hey, that's theater!

I have been getting these cool mushrooms in our backyard!
So this means that my week is rather crazy.... I just worked two 13hr days in a row and now, today, I don't have to go to work until 430! I am sooo pumped to have some free time.
The hubby and I spent the morning doing errands and I actually had time to put on this outfit, that I've been thinking about wearing all week (but I've been restricted to jeans and comfy shoes) ... it feels very fallish and girly! Now I can't wait to spend the rest of the day enjoying the breeze while reading on my front porch! cheers to perfect fall days!
look, Patrick wanted to be in the photo's today too!

sage and sunflowers

I spent part of today in the garden (I didn't garden in this... heels to weed, yikes!) but I wore this newly thrifted skirt (and ensemble) yesterday and forgot to take pictures... so here goes....

I gathered herbs from my garden to bundle and hang to dry

...to be honest I got about a million mosquito bites standing under this tree. I can't believe there are still so many bugs in my backyard! those little buggers (hehe) are fierce!

sick in bed.

i've been sick in bed for the past few days and my wardrobe has consisted of sweats and sweaters and scarves littered with tissues (so appealing, I know!) but here are some photos that I took last week! the weather has been amazing and it is killing me being cooped up while the sun is shining outside.... but alas, all I can do is take my meds and rest up rest up!

crazy mushrooms growing in my backyard!

I felt sort of Rockabilly in this outfit, with the plaid, the pompadour and glasses!
