Random Wednesday #5

Cardigan: Target (similar) | Top: Lauren Conrad @ Kohl's (similar) | Skirt: Forever 21 (old) | Boots: Mia | Necklace: Sweet Clover
Before we start with Random Wednesday...Happy Halloween and Trick or Treat Day!

1. Speaking of Halloween, I must admit that I am not a huge candy/sweets fan. I typically prefer salty (think chips and salsa). But, I can tear through an entire bag(s) of Twizzlers in less than time than it takes me to shower. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed that Logan and Landry get a sack full tonight and I will be able to stash them in my secret drawer. And I wouldn't be upset if they got a few Twix and Kit Kats as well. Anyone else swipe your kids' candy and hide it for yourself?

2. The color mustard. I have never been a fan, until the stores started putting out fall clothes this year. I always associated it with well, with mustard, as in the condiment. I picked up this cardigan a few months back and have worn it more than I ever expected. I call it my ol' trusty now. And then I moved onto mustard colored denim that you can see here. So, a color that used to be a "no-no" for me has now become a "yes-yes". Do you have a color that you have grown to love?

3. I started the psychological, suspense thriller, Gone Girl, this week after reading some positive reviews on a few blogs. I like it so far, but not super intrigued just yet. I am ready to hit the juicy, I don't want to put this book down part. Have any of you read it yet? 

4. I know I already mentioned it last week, but I have to say it one more time....I am obsessed with Taylor Swift's new album, Red. I can't get the songs out of my head. I must stop the repeat madness. What albums/songs do you have on repeat?  

That's all for today! 

Don't forget to listen to Micheal Jackson's Thriller at least ONE time today. Maybe I will put it on repeat.

I'm the same way. I don't do yellow or mustard, but lately find myself stocking up on it like no other. I think I have this same sweater, but I'm pretty sure mine doesn't fit that long. Target has a million and one cardis out right now, so who knows. What I do know is that I'm on the hunt for the perfect one... keep an eye out for me!

Happy (early) Halloween to you too!! When I stilled lived with my parents, I stole my sister's treats and hid them. haha!! My sister's convinced me mustard is a great color, but the husband doesn't like yellow!! I loved Gone Girl. I felt the same way the beginning was meh--ok...but then it got gooood!! really good!! Have fun trick-or-treating with your girls!!

Gentri said...

LOVE this outfit! It's way cute! Welcome to the mustard lovers club. haha! I was just thinking that I need to watch Thriller too! Such a classic.

Love those boots! That mustard cardigan looks great on you. I love the color, but the color doesn't seem to agree with my skin tone... :P

Myrna Wilson said...

Love the outfit!
I downloaded 'Red' this past weekend and I'm also really digging it. It's her sappy self, but there's a more grown up sound I really enjoy (not that I minded singing along to her other sappy music). :-)

Yellow and green in the spring/summer...pumpkin/burnt orange in the fall. I didn't like them, but like you, have found a few pieces that I found to be so versatile, especially in cardigan/sweater form.

Happy Halloween from Abu Dhabi!

Adorable outfit! And I'm on the fence with T.Swift. It's almost like a love/hate relationship. Her songs are oh-so catchy but then I can't get them out of my head! I guess maybe I shouldn't check out her new album...or maybe I should ;) Hmmm Happy Halloween either way ;)

Joy Shana said...

Love those boots and cardi

I haven't read that book, but when you finish definitely let me know how it is!

I am not a huge fan of Twizzlers but I love all the chocolate goodies. We had Trunk or Treat at church last night and pretty much gobbled up tons of Charlie's candy when he went to sleep. Terrible, right?

Loving this outfit, Shanna!! Glad you came around with liking the color because it looks great on you!!

Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} said...

I am ALL OVER MUSTARD this year too for the first time ever! Your skirt is awesome, your necklace is divine, and your whole look is perfection! Well done!

Ohhhhhhhh Gone Girl blew my MIND! I won't say another word, BUT I can't wait to hear your thoughts upon finishing!

A J said...

I have a mustard cardigan that I have worn once or twice, but need to break it out again. And I felt the same way about the book, I kept waiting for the "good part." I hope I can get it back soon fromt the library (there is a waiting list) so I can continue and hopefully get there!

Brooke Houston said...

I'm loving the mustard color, but I don't have much of it. I especially love the skirt. Your outfits are out of this world. Also, Gone Girl. LOVED IT! I just finished it about 2 months ago, I liked it(for the most part)but, I will say that I didn't like the ending.

Shanna, you always look so CUTE! You are rockin' that necklace -- EEK!!! :) I also LOVE the Taylor Swift album. I find myself obsessed with every album she comes out with, she is so clever with her words. This latest album in particular has touched me the most. And hail to the Twizzlers! My fav!! Happy Halloween!

Haley W. said...

Kit Kats and Twix are def. a few of my faves. Ever had the white choc. kit kat? Amazing. Nom nom.

TaySwift's album has me obsessed, as well. Treacherous and The Last Time are my favs. I love Snow Patrol. When I first heard it...first thing I did was look up to see if the guy was the lead singer of SP. He has such a beautiful and distinct voice...love it!!

Helene said...

I am on the same page with you on the mustard. At first i was like ehh but now I need some! I love that cardigan. I think I'm going to have to pick that up!
