    The costumes are to die for! I want to go as Olive Oyl. I asked my daughter if she wanted to and she said she didn’t like her. She doesn’t like Popeye, he isn’t nice. He hit that other guy. LOL!

    I can’t believe you’re wearing shorts! And I thought NC weather was sadly warm for Fall. I love the pink shirt-all your outfits are adorable as usual, but the pink shirt is my fave, I think.

  32. 32

    the fact that you can still wear shorts at the end of october… jealous. i actually shouldn’t complain our weather has been great but not THAT great.

    i love the wedge shoes from old navy.

    the green shirt from target… love!

    your halloween costumes were cute. love that idea!

  33. 33

    I knew it was Olive Oil when you gave the sneek peak pic before! You two look adorable together:)

    First of all, I love AllSaints–it’s my favorite brand. Second of all, I love this idea of What I Wore Wednesday! I am really going to try to do this and link up. I saw that Darcie on Such The Spot did it and it looks fun and I do need some blogging inspiration these days.

  42. 42

    Well first I should say that you’re gorgeous! And SO put together.

    Secondly: I just joined WIWW three weeks ago, and it is quickly becoming my FAVORITE day of the blogging week. I’ve gotten more dressed up in the last three weeks, and yesterday my husband finally noticed!

    Thank you!
