Random Wednesday #6

Cardigan: Express (similar)| Top: Lauren Conrad for Kohls (similar)| Pants: Kohls | Shoes: Target | Scarf: Can't remember (similar)

Another Wednesday means another post of some random. Here we go...

1. Can I tell you a secret? The location of these pictures is practically in my backyard. It's my new go-to place when I don't have time to actually get in my car and drive somewhere. Bonus, no public audience. All we do is prop a ladder up and climb on over the fence. Pretty convenient, wouldn't ya say?

2. I am trying to put a "slight" kabosh on my shopping for a few weeks. With Christmas around the corner, I need to start spending money on gifts and not clothes. So, everything in this outfit is SUPER old...okay, well except the shoes and pants. I am trying. I swear. I have been eyeing these oxford wedges at Target and they finally reeled me in. I have never been strong in the willpower department.

3. Let's talk about Gone Girl again. I told you last week that it wasn't doing it for me. Well, it got cray-cray real fast. I am almost finished and dying to see what happens. I think I have said to myself, out loud, "What the hell? OMG! No way!" at least a dozen times. If you haven't read it yet, it's one that will keep you up way past your nighty-night time.

4. I am sorta, kinda, maybe thinking about making Random Wednesday a weekly link-up. Did I just say that out loud? Crap. I go back and forth on the idea of hosting one. Quite frankly, I am petrified that nobody will add their little thumbnail under the 'click here to join' button. So, any of you ladies interested? At least somewhat interested? Lemme know...

5. The election...oh, the election. I refuse to talk politics here. All I will say is that I will continue to pray for our country. And what scares me most is our nation is truly divided..."United we stand, divided we fall".

Today is the LAST day to enter the clutch giveaway from Gardenhouse Boutique.
Don't miss your chance to win!
I am linking up with The Pleated Poppy.

Katie said...

so glad i have those pants so I can copy you! I'm trying not to shop either. then I found $4.50 flats at target and a scarf. maybe I should stop walking around target. and I agree - it was sad and scary when they keep saying we are a divided nation last night.

Katie said...

oh and i Like the random wednesday idea. i've been afraid to ever do one too. but I'd place money that people would link up! maybe do it every other week??

Love the pants! I think I almost bought that pair. But, they sold out before I could get my hands on them. I had to turn to trust old Marshall's. I think people would tune in for that link up!

Can I just say that I cried last night over the election results - and they weren't happy tears.

In other news: loving your outfit! I think we may have the same yellow pants and I never thought to pair them with purple. But I love the look! I saw a scarf on Pinterest like that and adore it - and those wedges I passed at Target. PASSED. I think I need to go back. lol

Always Maylee said...

You look so pretty, I love the colors in this outfit! And oh politics... all I can say is I'm just glad I don't have to see another ad for awhile. I can finally enjoy my regular tv programs in peace! :)

Ruthie Hart said...

this is in your backyard (ish?)....that is awesome! I love our hood but wish houses weren't on top of each other, makes it hard to take any sort of good pic. And I love your yellow skinnies. I scored my first two pairs a few weeks ago on sale at old navy and I wish I would have gotten 10 of them. They are so comfy (and cords too).

And it is so crazy to think about how divided our country is at this point, but prayer and our King will prevail.

Averi said...

link up link up do it do it!!! as always you look so cute!!!

Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} said...

LOVE the mustard with the purple! Great combo!

Lins said...

Huge fan of the purple and gold girl! Also, so glad you are loving Gone Girl. I was the same way - I literally was sitting there with my eyes wide open at parts thinking WTH?! Crazy!!!! Can't wait to hear what you think of the ending.

Amanda Cobb said...

Love the purple and yellow together! :) Also, I have the same fear as #4, that if I host something like that, no one will sign up. Also glad to hear Gone Girl is good; on the wait list at the library for it.

Sarah said...

Backyard?! Holy awesomeness!

I would down for a link up!!

Sippy Cups and Pearls said...

love that location! so pretty! just like you my friend :) and as far as the link up = DO IT!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I love the outfit! So cute! I'm not spending ANY more money on myself until after Christmas. Yikes. As for politics, Facebook was lit up last night. The nation really is divided. I just think of the last time the nation was divided. All it took was SC leaving and war was inevitable.

JMc said...

I say yes yes yes to Random Wednesday! I think it would be fun and tons of people would link up. Also, super cute outfit. I love that purple. And I also agree with you on the political stuff...now it's time for us to come together and pray our elected officials make the decisions this country needs to prosper again.

Sheridan @ Stitches Without Riches said...

I totally need a moratorium on shopping. Cannot stop buying flats. It's a problem.

Love your purple cardi - my favorite color.

Aimee said...

Do your daughters attend public school? Think of the support that their teachers will receive as a result of the election last night. Maybe that will shine a positive light for you? :)

Also, I bought those pants at Kohl's in purple and had trouble once I washed them. I now have new ankle pants!

Makaila said...

I love your photo op spot! And I love more that you climb a fence to get there! LOL pics, pics! I ask for pics! :D

Melanie said...

Your location is beautiful! I'd say you're very lucky ;) I also put a hold on my shopping...hopefully until the holidays are over! I need to focus on gifts for now. I'd totally link up to your Random Wednesdays! It's a great way to get to know people :) Great outfit BTW! Adore the scarf!

Why hello gorgeous! I need mustard pants, stat. Thanks to you. haha Have a lovely weekend dear!

Kelly { Messy.Dirty.Hair.} said...

OMG obsessed w this outfit! I love those two colors together & the scarf just completes the look! You are glowing in these photos! Just gorgeous!

Jamie said...

I love that scarf - and I love the colors in it that you used in the rest of your outfit! Gorgeous! And you're so lucky you have easy access to a great spot like this one. :)

Honestly, I think you'd get a great turn out on a linkup. I tried to start one for a few weeks but literally had your (and my haha) worst nightmare happen a few times - NO ONE linked up! And you know what? It really wasn't that big of a deal. Take a chance and you might be surprised!

And also - I completely agree with you about politics. I didn't even want to vote because I felt it further supporting this I'M right and YOU'RE wrong idea (though of course I did actually vote). I'm so tired of politics being so polarizing. We all need to work together!

Love this color combo!!!
