NO Rain

Tuesday, September 15, 2009
It was pouring yesterday, yet it sprinkled today. I should've switched outfits from yesterday and today.. Don't you hate when that happens? The coat was probably unnecessary because for some, it was apparently nice enough to wear a strapless dress and sandals while I wore tights and a turtleneck! I have a bad eye for weather.

  1. I just love the colors in this outfit!!! And you tulle coat is darling!

  3. Love the skirt (and that it's from Old Navy)!

    I got really into exercise by watching TV on the treadmill. My campus has a pretty amazing workout facility with treadmills that will sync with your iPod (so I'd just watch TV shows/movies I had downloaded from iTunes---no commercials!), but even just being able to watch favorite TV shows as they air works, too. Good luck getting into it---honestly I never did it regularly until this year, but now more than a couple of days away from the gym just feels weird.

  5. Wow. I want that coat. Or one like it. My only feminine/nice-looking coat is my -15 degree, down to my knees, quilted parka.

    I'm also bad at figuring out what to wear with the weather. Unless it's actually raining or snowing when I walk out the door, I'm 100% unprepared for what happens.

  6. you may have a bad eye for weather, but not style! i love this blue on you. love everything really. the skirt, tights, coat. fab elaine.

    as far as working out, i am in a rut myself. once i am in the routine of going everyday after work...i am consistent. but when i get knocked off my routine, i'm out for a month or more. i need to be more disciplined. my best advice is to go right after work or school in your case. try to not go home. for me, if i go home, it's over.

  8. I love the skirt! I used to work at Old Navy and I wish I had purchased that skirt :( I always check the weather online, because it always goes from rainy to sunny even during one day so I have to be prepared. Plus, I always keep an umbrella with me )

  9. I love that jacket, I can't believe it was only 44 dollars! That is an awesome steal. You look gorgeous!

  10. Fantastic color combination! the contrasts are crisp and clean, love it!

  11. you look gorgeous in blue... and i can't persuade you to work out, due to the fact that i can't even persuade MYSELF to. i currently look about 3 months pregnant with this pooch.

    oh, and to answer your question i'm from pittsburgh!

  14. This is super stylish! I love when you're able to morph from cute to chic XD the Tulle coat also is very neat and cuts a strong silhouette.

  15. That turtle neck looks lovely on you! Such a beautiful color! You should consider taking a tae bo class! It is such a fun way to get some exercise in your life. You get to kick and punch and do some cool moves to awesome dance music! I love it!

  20. Hi elaine!
    love this black skrit from old navy, it resides in my closet aqs well! It's a great find! :)
    the jacket, brand is tulle, you may be able to find it on their website, I got mine through Hip & Humble Home (in SLC 9th&9th area) I worked for Suzette back in the day (late 90's) when she owned Home Again, so she sent it to me out here in Oregon! But you won't need a ship, you can just pop on up to Ute country! Anyway, give them a call, I heard they are going fast!

  21. Hey, another lurker deciding to comment at last. Love your blog! I'm a fan, seriously, we need more blogs like this, especially from this area, I think. Anyway.

    I love the blue color! and the coat is very cute, also. actually I just love everything.

    um... here are some good reasons to work out: if you work out you will have more energy, be able to think more clearly, and have better self esteem over all (not that you have low self-esteem, just sayin'). Just the facts. =D

  42. haha... if you need motivation for working out, let;s just put it as the "best investment" you can make for your life - i;'ve worked out for years - but the really push was from my friend, a professional dancer in her 50's whose body is so amazingly toned and she is still in her peak of beauty and energy - i figure it is a wise investment to make from now so we can be beautiful all the way till 50's, would not it be fabulous??? xoxo

  43. Love this outfit on you!! That skirt is amazing!!

    I don't think you need to work out, but what I do is get DVD workout tapes and a portable DVD player... that way I can workout anywhere. It really helps (even though I have been slacking lately..haha).
