Seasonal Firsts & Tour Through Blogland

vest: exact
jeans: exact
jacket: f21 | option
sweater: target | cute option
necklace: gift | similar 1, 2
boots: (old) Franco Sarto | so similar
sunnies: old | way cooler option
scarf: (old) h&m


Well, I think I can officially admit that summer's over.  Don't get me wrong, we're still having some sunny, sweater-free days, but for the most part I probably won't need to use the air conditioner again until next May.  As I may have mentioned once or twice, I fall in the tiny percentage of people whose favorite season is not autumn.  I'm more of a bask-in-the-sun, happy-not-to-have-to-bring-a-coat type of girl.  But on this chilly day that required a jacket, vest, and scarf, I actually did a little happy dance when I put my boots on for the first time this season.  And then I got a pumpkin spice latte, second of the season.  (Unlike the boots, I didn't wait around for cool weather to get started on that autumn ritual).

In other news, last week Jessica from Jeans and a Teacup invited me to participate in a "Tour Through Blogland," where I answer some questions, and then introduce you to two of my favorite blogs.  

1) What am I working on?

A post on how to wear jogger pants 3 ways.  Because, let's face it, they're not the easiest to style.  Are they pajamas?  Are they regular pants?  (In my case, I have embraced them as both).  

2) How does my work differ from others in it's genre?

I'm not sure my work differs a whole lot (girl gets dressed, girl takes outfit photos, girl remixes inexpensive items from her closet, girl talks about herself).  You know, standard blogger stuff.

3) Why do I write?

Because I'm narcissistic and self-centered, of course, and getting compliments from complete strangers boosts my ego.  Why else?  But in all seriousness, I write because I love to do it!  And I'm constantly amazed that I do.  In school, when forced to write essays and papers, I thought I hated writing.  Turns out I just hadn't found my voice yet, and now that I have, I can barely shut it up!

4) How does my writing/creating process work?

It's fairly simple, really.  Sometimes I have a clear idea of what I want to write before I begin, but more often than not I just open a new post, let my fingers start tapping away, and see where it takes me.  After I finish I'll go back and make sure there's at least one sarcastic or self-deprecating comment in there.  Bonus if I can work in both.  Extra bonus if I make a bad pun.  And now you know my secret formula for writing a brilliant post.

And now, on to the Tour.  First up is Abby.  We discovered each others' blogs about a year ago, and then found out that we share the same exact favorite lipstick - brand and shade - true story!   And basically we've been each others' biggest fans ever since. 

Hi, I'm Abby, and I blog at Always, Abby about all things beauty, style, and life.  I'm a self-proclaimed makeup junkie, a candle hoarder, and scarf collector (three things you will see a lot of in my little corner of blogland).  Basically if I love it, I blog about it.  From the latest makeup and fashion trends, to home decor and fragrance... if it's working for me, I can't wait to share it with my readers.  I hope you'll stop by, connect with me, and share about the things you love, too!

Next up is Tara of Penniless Socialite, as in Friday's post to announce I'm co-hosting a link up with Tara.  I met her in person, and she is awesome.  Hilarious.  Witty.  Stylish. Vegetarian.  Plus she's also from NJ, so I mean, really, what's not to love?

I'm a stylish cat lady who loves sales, fashion, beer, pizza, and Bon Jovi. Follow along as I buy more clothes than fit in my closet and more makeup than fits in my Caboodle.  There will also be pictures of my cats.

*Please be sure to stop by these ladies' blogs and show them some love!*

Linking here today.
