Fall Fashion Week Day 3

It's really my Day 2 of Fashion Week since I'm pretty much a failure. But to be honest, I thought I could keep up with it, but I definitely cannot. I thought on my way home from work tonight-- I Should get dressed up and where my normal new fall clothes for a picture at least for Fall Fashion Week. I just couldn't do it. So, here is what I wore to work today. It's actually kind of fun to dress up this week for work. Usually it's light blue scrubs every day... but for orientation it's business dress. So, here is today:

(HOLY BANGS! I need a trim. HOLY EYEBROWS! I need a wax! I'm letting myself go down the drain! That has to do with lack of $$$. That will be taken care of within the next few weeks.)

Vest and Shirt are both from Maurice's.
Khakis-- Hollister (these pants are from HIGH SCHOOL! holy moly! Take that 3 months of marriage!! People always told me I'd gain so much weight when I got married and "comfortable". Not letting that happen.)
I wore brown flats with these today and a white cardigan from Forever 21 over top for the chilly room we were in today.

My lovely very good friend and neighbor, Emily, let me borrow the shirt and vest. They are not mine... haha! She has to dress up every day for work (teacher), and as I said, blue scrubs every day and I could pretty much wear my "dress clothes" in 2 days. so we went through her closet the other night and I borrowed her clothes. It was fun. It was like we were teenagers again and we both never had sisters (both have 2 older brothers actually) so it was fun to raid her closet and try on clothes. We decided we would swap clothes more often! It's fun!

Tomorrow night we're hanging out with friends so I will be more motivated to wear cute clothes when I get home from work instead of throwing on sweat pants.

In other news: The "Windy City" has been pretty much like a hurricane the past 2 days. I literally thought the wind was going to lift the back of my car off of the ground and flip it over. CRAAAZY!!!

I made pepperoni rolls tonight for our neighbor night tomorrow night. They are DELICIOUS! It's a West Virginia thing. Here's how you make them. By a 4 pack of Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits. Buy 1 pack of sliced pepperoni. You can use stick pepperoni and cut them into smaller strips, but that's a lot of work and it tastes the same. haha!

Flatten out each biscuit. Put 4-5 slices of pepperoni on top (like a pizza) and then roll it up. Make sure the edge is smooshed (or it will unroll in the oven) and smash the ends so they are good and closed.

Bake 10 minutes (or until golden brown on top) and remove from oven. While still hot rub some butter or margarine on the top of each biscuit and let it melt down the sides. (keeps them moist and butter is great! hehe)!

My grandma makes them with frozen bread dough and they are amazing! She makes real big ones! mmm mmm!!

PEPPERONI ROLLS! The West Virginia coal miner's lunch! ;-) That's how the originated. Wives would pack their husbands lunches for the coal mines and they would make pepperoni sandwiches. Then one lady discovered this and now it's a huge thing in WV. You can get them everywhere. My best friend and her mom were in the newspaper for their recipe. They put hot peppers and cheese in there. Some people even put hot dog chili inside!

I was always amazed when I would go out of state and talk about these and no one ever knew what I was talking about! I would stop and ask for a pepperoni roll and people would look at me funny and ask what it was. My cousins from Ohio always make us bring them some when we go visit and when they come to WV they always want them. So I'm anxious for our neighbors to all try them tomorrow night!

So there ya go. Fall fashion and a West Virginia treat. hehe! ;-)

That green goes really well with the browns. Shopping from other people's closets is the best. New stuff (to you) for free.

Lovely green blouse and even cooler vest on top. The vest fits you perfectly!

Rachael said...

okay, i haven't even done the first day of fall fashion week, so i'm a failure, not you!

second, i wish i had a friend that was the same size as me so we could borrow each other's clothes! it's no fun being the size of a 10-year-old!

last, that cardigan actually came from sears. crazy, right? last year chris and i walked through because he had to get some screwdrivers, and i looked at the cardigan and said, "when did they get cute clothes here?" so later that day i told him that i probably couldn't survive another day if i thought he wouldn't get that for me for christmas!

This crazy wind in Chicagoland is SO not normal. I have lived in the Chicagoland area for my entire life. The windy city IS windy most of the time, but this is bananas!
