Can you tell I can’t get enough of my new CAbi purchases? See my other outfits here and here. Thanks to my consultant, Lori Okrongley for helping me host my party and make all my wonderful selections! She even invited me to a totally fun and happening CAbi luncheon with guest speaker, Geena Davis. Yes, that would be Geena Davis the Academy Award winner! Look for my post on my day with CAbi coming up on the blog.

I’ve been living in this little shrunken tee combination. It’s actually two separate pieces – a little tank and a cropped top. I’ve worn the crop top over a white blouse and even over a black work out tank. I find I like to buy going out clothes and lately there’s been no going out unless it’s to the grocery store, so I’ve been trying to a conscious effort to invest in more casual pieces. This tee combo fits the bill. I picked up this scarf at Nordstrom while on my last trip to Vegas. It’s so soft and cozy, and what I especially like is it’s not too bulky. I hate when you put on a scarf and you feel like you’re buried in it. And it comes in so many color combinations that I had to buy this one too. I love wearing scarves, and I know I’m going to get tons of wear out of these with sweaters and coats this fall/winter.

    I agree with the smaller scarf idea…..I feel as though the big poufy scarf looks great in the catalogue, on the toothpick-shaped models. But, then at home, sitting atop my over-sized DD’s, I feel as though I look ridiculous and might suffocate! It makes my chest look even bigger! I feel like a human cake-pop!
    I love the neutral brown boots with the grey/black…remember the old days when we only wore BLACK boots/shoes with something like that?! We used to be so silly about things like that!

      I know, unless you have a super long neck or no chest, the big bulky scarves just don’t work or you look like a cake-pop LOLOL! And yes, I remember the days when we only wore black boots! Designers must have done this so we’d buy more shoes/boots! It worked!!

    found your blog b/c of my friend Kelly you met at the CAbi event! Love this shrunken sweater- what are you wearing under it??

      Hi Peggy! So happy to have you! I love Kelly! She’s so fun. I call her “cute Kelly”! Wasn’t that picture of her striking a pose so adorable?! Captures her personality I think. Anyhow, the shirt I’m wearing underneath is a tank by CAbi called the Mix Tank. They show it together as a set during the parties, but it’s a separate. Here’s the link to it on the CAbi site: http://www.cabionline.com/collection/clothes/mix-tank/
