What I'm Loving Wednesday

Well this will be short and sweet and a little fashion-tastic, because, folks, its getting kinda of busy around here and trying to get over a cold (thanks sweet husband) while not getting enough sleep isn't making life easier. BUT somehow or another I have found some time to do a little bit of internet window shopping and pinning and I'm bringing it all to the blog today.

1. Don't know if I've mentioned this yet or not, oh wait, I have.. more than once, but I'm pretty excited about football season and going to see our Bulldogs play this weekend in Kentucky!
2. Using the out-of-state football game as an excuse, my husband and I have decided I need to take the day off on Monday and enjoy a long weekend of outdoor adventures in and around Virginia. We will definitely be driving along the Blue Ridges to explore, eat, and relax. I cannooottt wait!

3. Now onto the fashion part of what I'm loving this Wednesday... first of all, how about a little maroon love? Oxblood, burgandy, wine, maroon... call it what you will. I am LOVING that this sultry hue is everywhere right now. I want to own more of it! (I figure MSU t-shirts don't exactly count...)

4. I am obsessed with ankle boots. Especially the oh-so-chill, but still very adorable suede, casual boots like these. She looks like she may be hiking here, but I don't know if that's such a great idea...

5. Have you heard about the new online J.Crew factory?? I'm pretty excited! On October 11, they will launch a new site devoted soley to their factory sales... as if I don't justify all my purchases enough.
6. And finally, today I am sending a little extra love to my hubby. (As if I could possible love hime more). Yesterday he not only went to get a few forgotten groceries while I was at work, but he also picked up me up a magazine (which is kind of a luxury over here) and took my favorite broken necklace to a jewler to repair... it's been riding around in my backseat for ages. Pretty nice guy, huh?
Hope everyone is having a happy hump day!


  1. Have so much fun at the game Saturday!! So wish we could travel that far in a weekend :)

    1. Thanks Callie! We are really excited. And the drive is only 7 hours for us and through some great country-side, so I know we will enjoy it.

  2. Found your blog from What I'm Loving Wednesday. I live about 2 hours from the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia and fall is my favorite time to visit, it's soooo beautiful! Hope you enjoy your trip!

    Oh and the J.Crew factory store online could be very dangerous for me and my bank account, it's def. my favorite place to shop!!

    1. We love it too! We are in Charlottesville, so we're just a little bit closer than you. Last year was our first fall season here, and it was amazing. I don't think I could ever get tired of it. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. i am in love with ankle boots this year too and enjoy monday it is already a federal holiday Columbus Day! and i can't wait for the new JCrew factory story I can't wait!


Thank you for your thoughts!
